To Fundamentally Transform America or Not to Fundamentally Transform America, That is the Question

President Obama in late October of 2008:

We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.

President Obama yesterday on why we should avoid Paul Ryan’s budget plan:

But the way this plan achieves those goals would lead to a fundamentally different America than the one we’ve known throughout most of our history.

Ryan’s only trying to help the president fulfill a campaign promise, so what’s the problem?

Speaking of President Obama’s “budget deficit” speech yesterday, on the topic of American greatness, it sounds like we might be in for some “shining entitlement programs on a hill” style campaign ads next year:

“‘There but for the grace of God go I,’ we say to ourselves, and so we contribute to programs like Medicare and Social Security, which guarantee us health care and a measure of basic income after a lifetime of hard work; unemployment insurance, which protects us against unexpected job loss; and Medicaid, which provides care for millions of seniors in nursing homes, poor children, and those with disabilities,” Obama said. “We are a better country because of these commitments. I’ll go further – we would not be a great country without those commitments.”

A tear just came to my eye as I pictured people emigrating from war-torn, oppressed nations waiting patiently in line at Ellis Island, coming to the US with nothing but the shirts on their backs and a dream of unemployment insurance that only America offers.

In addition to that, the term “shared prosperity” is used on the White House website.

Is this the president the media and the White House were trying to Reaganize just a few weeks ago?
