This kind of rhetoric is the sort of thing that you'd typically hear from Venezuela's Hugo Chavez or Cuba's Fidel Castro. That we hear it from an American president is indicative of how far the once-mighty Democrat Party has fallen.
"I believe that it is part of our solemn responsibility to future generations that we look after this planet; that we make sure our air is clean and our water is clean; that we’re not poisoning our kids," Obama said at a campaign fundraiser tonight. That credo came as he explained that "the contrast between visions in this election could not be more stark, because I believe that America is stronger when we’re looking for one another."
Obama's line evokes his Associated Press speech this week, when he said Republicans believe that if the government "let businesses pollute more and treat workers and consumers with impunity, that somehow we’d all be better off."
There are no moderate Democrats left. There are only Marxists.
