There’s a very good piece by Michael Gerson in the Washington Post this morning. It’s entitled A Week of Revelation. It is Mr. Gerson’s take on the last week when America began to get a look at the real Barack Obama. We hadn’t seen the Obama of last week in Candidate Obama but I think it’s safe to conclude that the cobwebs are finally falling away and the real Obama is emerging. Here are the closing words to Mr. Gerson’s piece:
On defense policy, the peace candidate is not a radical. On economic policy, the post-partisan could hardly be more partisan. Obama does not want to cultivate conservatives; he wants to crush them. And that is a revelation.
I recommend giving the entire piece a read. It is edifying.
