The Mendacity of Hope: Barack Obama and the Betrayal of American Liberalism by Roger D. Hodge
Roger D. Hodge certainly knows a few big words (“mendacity” means deception – I had to look it up) but he has completely overlooked a simple fact about Barack Obama. He’s the President of the United States, not the king of them.
Hodge doesn’t think Obama has lived up to the promise, but there is much more to the story.
The promised Change might not be happening as fast as we would have liked, but without a divine right a liberal non-king must contend with the roadblocks of a self-serving Congress, a conservative-leaning Supreme Court, and the utter fickleness of the American populace.
If he did in fact wear a crown and his word was law, I’m sure his critics would choose to stick to the facts when criticizing him because they’d have their heads, not just headlines, to worry about.Click here for reuse options!
