“Please, sir, I want some more”

During a rally in Roseburg, Oregon, this past Saturday, Barack Obama proclaimed: “We can’t drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times … and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK.”

In his imagined future Obama assigns the American people the role of the poorhouse orphan beseeching Mr. Bumble: “Please, sir, I want some more.” In his imagined future Obama aligns himself with Mr. Bumble. It’s a remarkably strange platform for a major party presidential candidate to announce in the United States of America.

PAUL adds: “Yes we can” is starting to sound a lot like “no you can’t.”
