‘Soft’ Nation

By Mark Steyn

‘The way I think about it,” Barack Obama told a TV station in Orlando, “is, you know, this is a great, great country that had gotten a little soft.”

He has a point. This is a great, great country that got so soft that 53 percent of electors voted for a ludicrously unqualified chief executive who would be regarded as a joke candidate in any serious nation.

Yes, ol’ Barack Obama will toughen us all up, with endless regulations, destructive deficits, Obamacare, taxes on the rich, etc., etc. Yes, we had it too good under previous administrations, but the current president will administer the punishment we deserve. Thank you, Sir. May we have another?
