    A Brilliant Prophecy From 93 Years Ago

    H.L. Mencken (born 1880 - died 1956) was a journalist, satirist, critic, and Democrat. He wrote this editorial while working for
    the Baltimore Evening Sun, which appeared in the July 26, 1920 edition.

    "As democracy is perfected, the office of the President represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day, the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be occupied by a downright fool and complete narcissistic moron."

    That is a perfect description of Obama. No other president even comes close. I guess it's only appropriate that it has happened at the time America the Great has fallen from the world's #1 economic power to #2 and continues her downhill slide under our current president.
    The historical record is clear. Nations rise on economic nationalism. They descend on free trade. - Patrick J. Buchanan Suicide of a Superpower.

    I WISH he was just an idiot. It's far more sinister than that. This is an enemy of the state.
