Change We Can Believe In: Obama Turned Camelot Republican

I think there should be a new rule: when you write a title this good, you shouldn’t even have to bother writing the rest of the article:

Barack Obama’s change we can believe in: he has turned Camelot Republican
By Gerald Warner World Last updated: January 20th, 2010

Exactly one year ago today Barack Obama was inaugurated as President of the United States amid scenes more appropriate to the enthronement of a Pharaoh than the initiation of a democratic leader. Remember the hysteria, the gushing sycophancy of the liberal media, the Disneyland hype? One year later, it is all over for the Messiah. Obama has finally provoked change we can believe in: he has turned Massachusetts Republican.

Camelot has turned bright red. It is comfortably in the hands of the GOP. From early in the count Republican Scott Brown established an unassailable 5-point lead over Martha Coakley, the arrogant Democrat candidate who epitomised the sense of entitlement that characterises the members of the liberal establishment. She was a caricature of Democrat prejudices, down to being a cradle Catholic who championed abortion – like her rebarbative predecessor Edward Kennedy. At 2.15am (our time) the Boston Globe reported that Coakley had telephoned Brown to concede defeat. That historic conversation effectively called time on the Obama administration.

It takes a real mental effort to come to terms with the notion of a man named Brown being an effective and worthwhile politician, but in Massachusetts that is the reality. Brown created an electoral insurgency. He articulated all the resentment of decent Americans against the liberal establishment. In doing so he has overturned the Democrats’ 60-seat presence in the Senate which until last night made them invulnerable to a Republican filibuster and made it possible for them to railroad Obama’s insane, statist, totalitarian health care “reforms” through Congress.

No more. If the Democrats even attempted to use procedural tricks to rush the healthcare dog’s breakfast through before Brown takes his seat, America would not stand for such a blatant evasion of the popular will on so controversial a measure. It simply isn’t going to happen. Nor is any of the rest of the Obama fantasy. The Republicans are now poised to take control of the House in November. Obama has had his year of power, but now he is a busted flush.

And what a year it was. Retreat, abasement and blunders in every area of foreign policy, from North Korea to sell-out to Russia on nuclear weapons. This blog always insisted Obama would be a one-term president. Even I, however, had not counted on his being a one-year wonder. Even Anne of the Thousand Days had a longer run than that. Americans have proved they can spot a phoney in 12 months. That shames Britain’s record: the deluded electorate here voted three times for the Great Charlatan Blair.

To see the pricking of the Obama balloon is delightful. Congratulations, America. Happy anniversary, Mr President.

To paraphrase Dr. Phil: “How’s that hopey and changey thing working for you?

Here’s to hoping for the change of a Republican landslide, courtesy of Barack Hussein and his destroy America agenda.

    An amazing upset in MA that is for sure. I agree–a title that good should just be able to stand on its own.

    Dennis Prager says he is a “Kennedy liberal.” But then he says a Kennedy liberal is a conservative by today’s standards.

    Kennedy passionately believed in a strong national defense that confronted our enemies where they were. And he was a passionate tax-cutter.

    Yesterday, Scott Brown yanked the Massachusetts Senate seat from the “Ted Kennedy” legacy and returned it to the “John Kennedy” legacy.
