The Coming Civil Discontent In the United States

Pat Buchanan notes the possibility of a backlash against the likely election of Barack Obama.
One hopes that's not the case. As time passes, it seems clearer and clearer that with Obama, the USA is repeating the experience that the British had with Blair in 1997; he's just another almost impossibly plausible triangulator who'll say anything to get elected and will hugely disappoint when in office. The USA is soon going to undergo the Tony Blair Experience; hopefully, it will be strong enough to withstand it.

Obama stands with the Teamsters and other unions on the sending of American jobs to un-unionised, child-exploiting sweatshops in Asia and Latin America.

He stands with the black, Irish and Scots-Irish working classes on sending their sons off to be harvested in pointless, unwinnable wars on behalf of others in American society who do not pull their weight militarily.

And the core of his core, which he will have to keep happy in order to secure a second term, is not only the morally conservative mainstay of things like the Alliance for Marriage, but is also made up of the people most opposed to illegal and even much legal immigration, and whose views on the status of English make them the South Welsh of America.

David,

That's what he says now. Just wait for his Ecclestone moment.
