Barack Obama, Red-Baiter

Undeterred by pesky responsibilities like the War on Terror (as we called it in the bad old days), President Obama is headed to Paris to confront the Greatest Threat of Our Time: global warming (as they called it in the glory days, before the earth was rude enough to cool, necessitating the substitute “climate change”). Obama made a stirring statement:

“Next week, I will be joining President Hollande and world leaders in Paris for the global climate conference. What a powerful rebuke to the terrorists it will be when the world stands as one and shows that we will not be deterred from building a better future for our children. … Let’s remember, we faced greater threats to our way of life before: fascism, Communism, a first world war, the second, a long cold war. Each and every time we prevailed.”

Hang on: Did Barack Obama, of Occidental and Columbia, and the New party and Alinsky, and Reverend Wright’s church and the Choom Gang, list Communism in a parade of horribles? Who duz he think he is, Joe McCarthy? Do Jarrett and the Ax know about this? Do de Blasio and Castro (either one of them)?

Honestly — seriously — I’m surprised. As he enters his mid-50s, there may be hope for the eternal grad student yet.
