O: Supervised Success for All

October 6, 2012

Our president believes in “a fairly administered and properly supervised entitlement to a fair and equal opportunity for Every Person to achieve Success.” (Contemporary English translation of recent statement in Newspeak.)

Kings and emperors and caliphs and fuehrers and general secretaries,  and, even the republics and democracies, have fallen abysmally short of this lofty dream.

Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy gave it their best shot in 1951. Will our president succeed where they failed?

Might the masterful magical mystery man achieve it?

Will the electorate, in its wisdom, give him four more years of striving toward this noble goal?

Obama: ‘We Don’t Believe Anybody Is Entitled to Success in This Country’ | The Weekly Standard http://bit.ly/RkY4MD

“This country doesn’t just succeed when just a few are doing well at the top. It succeeds when the middle class gets bigger. Our economy doesn’t grow from the top down — it grows from the middle out. We don’t believe that anybody is entitled to success in this country,” said Obama. “But we do believe in opportunity. We believe in a country where hard work pays off and responsibility is rewarded, and everybody is getting a fair shot and everybody is doing their fair share and everybody is playing by the same rules.” [My emphasis.]

“All persons in all the world deserve fair and equal opportunities to become Golden People. To succeed like the Plantagenets of Aquitaine,  the Elizabeths and Victoria of England, the great Virginia gentry of old, the Roosevelts and Rockefellers of New York, the Tafts of Ohio,  the Bushes of Texas, and the Adamses and Romneys of Massachusetts  Any familial and social instabilities that accompanied any person’s early history ought not to matter. And ought to be eliminated through fair regulation, remedial social programs, and, above all, affirmative action.” (Further free translation of our president from various Newspeak originals.)
