I ALREADY HAVE A DADDY: But I’ve lately started wondering if the current Democrats aren’t in some odd way trying to capitalize on the wounded children of the shattering social revolution. Two Democrat presidents with absentee dads in a row might be just a coincidence, but it doesn’t feel that way. Obama’s “weirdly paternalistic form of social liberalism”. As we used to say, when I was a hardcore Libertarian: We don’t want to be your mommy, we don’t want to be your daddy. We want you to move out of the basement and get a job. (Getting adults to take responsibility would be good too to avoid more wounded children.) Wonder if that could be a winning electoral message? We shall see.
