Barrie Obama - Icon of the Boomers - OR - USA: from Barry Goldwater to Barry Obama - Huhh?

Reader comment on item: Bibliography – My Writings on Barack Obama's Early Years as a Muslim

Dr Pipes -

Whatever the boomers touch - BOOM!! - govt. policies, corporations, professional sports, etc. - scandals break out to a degree that dishonor those who came before, cast doubt on their achievements or threaten to destroy all that Americans have built.

Obama is the US version of Canadian Jack Layton - promises would cost billions to implement. Biden is the US version of a parliamentarian backbencher.

Obama - Can you please tell me what Americans have in common or think what they have in common or what they find about this candidate or the democrat party so appealing? Because this is not the America I thought I knew - the gimmeegimmee culture so obvious in British, French and Canadian politics has infected the US.

Also - how can a government agency be allowed to contribute to politicians? Is it not supposed to be impartial? What have ( some of ) the boomers done to your country?

Submitting....
