At least in this geographical context. But Scott Johnson of Power Line quotes a key passage from Obama’s “Sermon to the Germans”, and Rush Limbaugh’s response. First, Obama:
People of Berlin, people of the world, this is our moment. This is our time. I know my country has not perfected itself. (cheers) At times we struggle to keep the promise of liberty and equality for all of our people, we’ve made our share of mistakes, and there are times when our actions around the world have not lived up to our best intentions.
Here’s an excerpt of Rush’s take:
“We haven’t perfected ourselves.” You know, that’s a key phrase, by the way, is one of the things that drives liberalism is the fact that they think people and institutions can be perfected. They think they can be perfect.
Obama’s discussing the use of government to achieve the perfection of man in Germany? Now that’s audacity.
