Aphorism of the Day updated..

My friend good friend Tom -- former high school track team mate and only conservative in Oregon -- sent me this update on the post I attributed to a Hot Air! reader some days ago. This quote came from the Czech Republic:
"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president.

The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America . Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president."

Context adds so much to the meaning. Smart guys over there in the Czech Republic, no?

Chairman BaO's election is not a statement about him as much as it is a sad commentary on the people who voted for him. What kind of person do you have to be to vote for an incompetent, unqualified collectivist thug like him? Unfortunately, it appears that we have millions of that type of person infesting our country.

I hope they're learning their lesson.
