Oh, For Fuck's Sake, Stop Talking Like A Moron

Today, FLG learns from Robbo that Obama said the following at a commencement:
"But what troubles me is when I hear people say that all of government is inherently bad," said Obama, who received an honorary doctor of laws degree. "When our government is spoken of as some menacing, threatening foreign entity, it ignores the fact that in our democracy, government is us."

In a representative democracy, or a republic, if you will, the government is an institution that exists to serve the people. It is not in point of fact the people and has, like all institutions, its own priorities and interests, some of which may be at odds with the people. It's an esoteric point, but an important one, FLG believes.

1. The moron used a teleprompter.

2. The article had this nugget:

"Speaking before Obama was Gov. Jennifer Granholm, who's known to be on his short list of possible Supreme Court nominees."


Suddenly, Harriet Miers looks exceptionally qualified....

Of course the temptation to pick Granholm, besides the fact she's owned by the Unions, is that she will divide Catholics and, more importantly their vote. A female pro-abortion Catholic on the Supreme Court.

Let's see if O has the courage to really go for it. It will rally his base.

Totally forgot, in that snippet, he's setting up a strawman.
