It’s About To Get Dickensian Up In Here
Peggy Joseph, perhaps better than any professional pundit, summed up the expectations many on the Left have for a Barack Obama presidency when she said, “I won’t have to worry about paying my mortgage; I won’t have to worry about gas in my car.”
I’m guessing that Ms Joseph either plans to marry Mr Obama, or be appointed to a post in his cabinet.
Failing that, Ms Joseph will still have to worry about paying her mortgage and putting gas in her car.
She, and others like her, are in for some hard lessons.
The president, it is true, can effect many changes.
But there are some things the president cannot do.
Let’s review those things the president cannot do.
He cannot go to school for you.
He cannot go to college for you.
He cannot go to work for you.
He cannot pay your mortgage.
He cannot put gas in your car.
He cannot marry your baby’s mama.
He cannot do your child’s homework.
He cannot sacrifice so that you can afford the best possible education for your child.
In short, ask not what Obama can do for you; ask how you can be more like Obama.
