From the pro-American Left — remember them? — Pat Caddell and Doug Schoen have a remarkable op-ed in the Wall Street Journal this morning on the failed promise of President Obama to transcend racialist politics and class warfare. They write:
Rather than being a unifier, Mr. Obama has divided America on the basis of race, class and partisanship. Moreover, his cynical approach to governance has encouraged his allies to pursue a similar strategy of racially divisive politics on his behalf…. By dividing America, Mr. Obama has brought our government to the brink of a crisis of legitimacy, compromising our ability to address our most important policy issues.
The whole thing is here.
