It Is Not On Purpose: Medved on Obama

Michael Medved writes an extremely smart Op-Ed on Obama in today's Wall Street Journal.  Building on John Adam's prayer (see below) when moving into the White House, Medved argues that while many president's have had their flaws, none, including Obama, have done anything but pursue what they think is best for the country.  Medved strongly criticizes those on the right who attack Obama not on his arguments but on his supposed desire to "destroy America".

It is a strong and necessary argument and one that needs to be more directly emphasized by the rational on the right.  Obama needs to be battled on his ideas not myths about insidious plots.  As Medved argues, it hurts the GOP's electoral cause.  It also just makes the right seem devoid of any serious ideas and incapable of anything but Beckian conspiracy theories.

John Adam's said "I pray Heaven to bestow the best of blessings on this house and all that shall hereafter inhabit it. May none but honest and wise men ever rule under this roof."
