Comments on In the general direction of Mecca… by Rex Caruthers

There are now 1100 comments on the DR article 95% either favorable,or she wasn't harsh enough. Very little disagreement from the WSJ group on a negative take on Obama.

So far,there are about 800 comments(WSJ) on Dorthy's opinion,I have spent several hours today,checking them out. Many.believe that she is way too kind to Obama,him being a threat to the American Way of Life,also many believe that Obama does not "qualify" legally,to be President.
My interest in this, is one paragraph,which I will deconstruct here and now.
"Those qualities to be expected in a president were never about rhetoric; Mr. Obama had proved himself a dab hand at that on the campaign trail. (1)They were a matter of identification with the nation and to all that binds its people together in pride and allegiance. (2)These are feelings held deep in American hearts, unvoiced mostly, but unmistakably there and not only on the Fourth of July.
(3)A great part of America now understands that this president's sense of identification lies elsewhere, and is in profound ways unlike theirs. (4)He is hard put to sound convincingly like the leader of the nation, because he is, at heart and by instinct, the voice mainly of his ideological class. (5)He is the alien in the White House, a matter having nothing to do with delusions about his birthplace cherished by the demented fringe.

In #s 1&2,add the word SOME before people and American,and I agree with her sentiment.

#3,"a great part of America" Correct if a great part of America is around 30% of America

#4 He is hard put, etc etc, to that 30%.

#5 He is an Alien,To that same 30%

What Dorthy won't recognize is thatThere are others who are bound by the idea that the nation is held captive by Hybris and Imperial overreach,and they are a legitimate voting block. They are in need of representation just as is The Silent 30%.
Those who reject the myths of exceptionalism need a representitive too.

I don't even believe Obama is the first of his kind,I believe FDR was far more Radical and antiexceptionalist than poor cautious Obama.

It will probably never happen,but I'm a great believer in the virtues of Divorce. Those who agree with DR should be allowed to have their own nation. The easiest way is to grant the South and the West to the Rabaniwitzians,the EAST and the Far West go to the Antiexceptionalists,and we split the Midwest.
