Obama’s Words and (mis?) Deeds

These paragraphs come from an article in the recent issue of The New York Review of Books that, unfortunately, few will read. These three paragraphs that I’ve pasted below may encourage some to read the splendid essay in its entirety. Those who do will be better informed as a result of their effort.

Using common grounds (or the lowest common denominator) to build a future

Like most Americans, I have seen our country sliding slowly into a third world country. It is so unfortunate. I love this country, I love the principles it was built on. And I was fortunate enough to choose such a country as the country where I would live for the rest of my life.
