Cuomo is a Bigot – US Obama Debt, Bush’s Fault

Cuomo is a Bigot – US Obama Debt, Bush’s Fault

Listening to Andrew Cuomo castigate social conservatives and imply that they’re not welcome in New York really brings back memories for me. And not happy ones.

Back in the early ’90s, I (temporarily) became a conservative, bolting from the centrist liberalism in which I was raised, in part out of exasperation at the political correctness of the Left at the time. It was the heyday of multiculturalism, when all that seemed to matter was where you came from and how well you could emote about your origins. As long as you weren’t a white male, that is. In my high-minded (white male?) way, I believed that where you came from mattered much less than where you were going — and where I wanted to go was in pursuit of timeless ideals of truth, goodness, and beauty.

Thanks to my only partially adequate reading of Allan Bloom’s Closing of the American Mind, I naively came to believe that the Right was a much more suitable launching pad for that idealistic intellectual pursuit. That’s one explanation for how I ended up as an editor at First Things magazine, a journal that’s aptly been described as the New York Review of Books of the religious right.   more at


Why is President Obama still blaming Bush for the weak economy and the soaring debt? Why is he rejecting all personal responsibility? It seems President Obama’s key campaign strategy is to blame the Bush admininstration for everthing that goes wrong, and take credit for anything that goes right.

President Obama said the debt and deficit he inherited is “baked in” structurally:  “All of this stuff is baked in, with all the interest payments for it, it’s like somebody goes to the restaurant, orders a big steak dinner, martini, all that stuff and then just as you’re sitting down, they leave and accuse you of running up the tab,” the president said at a fundraiser in Baltimore Tuesday.

Charles Krauthammer on Special Report examines Barack Obama’s most recent explanation for why he isn’t responsible for anything and why it’s all Bush’s fault.
