QOTD: “Policy failures, as usually understood, mean nothing to the Democrat party because successes or failures are not relevant to the rationale behind those policies. Policies initiated by Democrats are intended first and foremost to cement the place and power of Democrats in the American polity.., all the post-election talk about what Obama’s second agenda would be (energy? jobs? foreign policy? and so on) was meaningless since there would be one and only one second-term agenda for this president … to eliminate political and economic competition to himself first and the Democrat party second. There is no other Obama agenda. Not jobs, not economic growth, not anything. Emplacing permanent one-party rule in this country is the sole goal for term 2.

That is what he is really doing, very energetically, while we grow tired of paying attention to him.” —Donald Sensing
