    Default Barack Obama: “America is no longer what it once was”

    Obama: “America is no longer what it once was”

    posted at 11:25 am on August 7, 2008 by Ed Morrissey

    When presidential candidates answer questions from children about why they want the job, most will give an answer that uplifts the child and the candidate. Not Barack Obama. At a campaign stop in Elkhart, Indiana, a seven-year-old girl asked the Democrat why he wants to be President — and he told her that America has gone downhill:

    “America is …, uh, is no longer, uh … what it could be, what it once was. And I say to myself, I don’t want that future for my children.”



    Sound familiar? Michelle Obama sounded similar themes earlier in the campaign:
    “Sometimes it’s easier to hold onto your own stereotypes and misconceptions. It makes you feel justified in your ignorance. That’s America.”
    “Let me tell you something. For the first time in my adult life, I am proud of my country, because it feels like hope is making a comeback.”
    Everyone feels that we can improve ourselves, but we don’t usually cast it in terms of the country no longer being what it once was.

    Coming from the Obamas, that doesn’t even make sense. They have talked about how difficult it was to break through barriers, not without some justification, to reach this point in their lives and American history.

    Doesn’t that speak to the point that we continue to grow and to learn? And if not, which “good old days” did Obama mean? The 1980s? I doubt it, and if he means the Clinton era, then why did he run against Hillary in the first place?

    Once again, Obama got off the teleprompter and put his foot directly in his mouth. He’s not selling Hope, he’s selling Despair, and himself as the snake oil that will cure us of all our ills.

    Update: Maybe that seven-year-old was just another John McCain proxy.

    Update II: Rush says it all in this clip:

    LIMBAUGH: Alright, now here’s he’s brought it home. He had trashed his country in Germany, he has seen the result of that in his plummeting poll numbers. And now he does it again in Elkhart, IN. A 7 year old little girl. You’re running for President Sen. Obama, a little girl asks you a question, “Why did you start running for President?”
    It’s a 7 year old Senator. Ya tell her because you love the country. You tell her because this is the greatest place on Earth. That we’ve got challenges, but you want to help the country through it. You don’t tell a 7 year old that her country isn’t what it once was. You do not lie to 7 year olds and tell them that your country sucks. You just don’t do it Senator.
    America’s no longer what it could be? What it once was? How the Hell would you know Sir? Your experience has only been in one part of America. Elite, leftist academia.

    Rush Limbaugh is one of the reasons Obama is right.

    Well, Republicans are the ones that still defend Bush for sitting on his ass for 7 minutes on 9/11 because he would've frightened the little children if he had gotten up and done his job.
