Assigned Reading: Obama Says Iran’s Energy Concerns Legitimate (FROM: The Washington Post)
Legitimate energy concerns. Legitimate aspirations. At least that’s how Obama characterizes Iran’s expansion of its nuclear program. Here at home, however, as we prepare to take a giant step backwards with Henry Waxman’s cap-and-trade bill, Obama’s Democrats refuse to listen to plans advanced by Republicans like Joe Barton which would expand our own nuclear program.
I don’t get it. I don’t get it at all.
Oh, wait — yes I do! It’s about leveling the playing field across the world, never mind the possible adverse consequences. It’s about “American guilt” which, like “white guilt,” fosters in people like Obama the need to apologize for success, apologize for work ethic and prosperity and freedom. Now, however, when it comes to permitting Iran to advance a nuclear program so long as it is determined–by whom?–to be peaceable, that particular mental disorder puts millions of lives at risk across the globe.
