Obama is a Man of the Left

This weekend, Glen talks about the leftist agenda wrapped up in President Obama’s second inaugural address, the ruling by the Federal Appeals Court that declared Obama’s “recess” appointments to the National Labor Relations Board unconstitutional and an abuse of power, and  Hillary Clinton’s Congressional Benghazi testimony.

Dr. Paul Kengor, Executive Director of The Center for Vision and Values, joins Glen with thoughts on what Obama’s re election means for Conservatives and our agenda.

Gregg Daily, Vice President of defined benefit and municipal assets at Fragasso Financial, joins Glen with recommendations on how parents and grand parents should save for their children and grand children’s education.

Paul Kengor says Obama’s speech would have been wonderful coming from the mouth of Ronald Reagan, but not from Obama?

And he objects to this line in the inaugural address: “preserving our individual freedoms ultimately requires collective action?”

Does “World War 2” ring a bell?

The problem with the ideological right (just read the titles of Kengor’s books) is that they’re stuck in a 30-year time warp, where words like “progress” and “collective” generate a Pavlovian response, making them alternately cower in fear of invisible Communists, and salivate uncontrollably at the thought of the demagoguery that will lift them into power once again.
