Jack's Enclave - Prince of Fools
Return To Archive

The following can be found posted on many sites on the WEB. It is attributed to an article published in the Czech Republic in 2010.

"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgement to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president."

That this should come from a citizen of a nation half a world away is telling. It tells how many beyond our borders have come to view the U.S. It tells how we in America focus all too often on the symptom rather than the cause. That we, in America, are the cause.
