Admit it: you find it curiously comforting to see that neither time nor age nor experience has taught Obama anything: he remains as politically-economically brilliant as he always was.
But perhaps over the last seven or so years you’ve not been able to hear him over the noise of his propaganda machine.
Well, just yesterday, he had a great many people shaking their heads when he told an audience of Argentinian youths that there’s no real difference between communism and capitalism and that they should just “choose from what works.”
“So often in the past there has been a division between left and right, between capitalists and communists or socialists, and especially in the Americas, that’s been a big debate,” Obama said.
“Those are interesting intellectual arguments, but I think for your generation, you should be practical and just choose from what works. You don’t have to worry about whether it really fits into socialist theory or capitalist theory. You should just decide what works.”
He went on to laud Communist Cuba and their dictatorial regime, which is such a socialist paradise that each year a great many Cuban people are willing to risk 100 miles of shark-infested waters just to get the hell out of there.
(Note to dems: please tell me again how no serious democratic today still actually admires the Castros. Tell me again how “backward” the Republicans are.)
Obama concluded his lecture by arguing that a market-based system “has to have a social and moral and ethical and community basis.”
Barack Obama, ladies and gentleman: one little glimpse inside the mind of a genius.
