Surrounded

In a commencement address this weekend, President Obama urged graduating students to surround themselves with people who think differently and who have different life experiences. And with whom has Mr. Obama surrounded himself? Chicago pols such as Valerie Jarrett and Rahm Emmanuel, cranks who set forth 9/11 conspiracy theories, few if any pro-lifers, and almost no one with any business experience. Perhaps that is why Obama continues to press on with his leftwing agenda to his own detriment and despite the clear wishes of the American people. Mr. Obama was the most liberal U.S. senator and now he is the most liberal U.S. president. Could it be because of the company he keeps?
