Many believe that the current administration – or perhaps more broadly, the current Democratic regime, by the triumvirate Obama, Pelosi, and Reid since the 2006 elections – will be remembered and condemned for its “unforced errors”… that is, for the unnecessary mistakes it has made, through mishandling programs and clumsily creating needless trouble by misreading economic cause-and-effect or societal trends.
But were they truly errors at all? Were they mistakes?
Much of the damage done by this administration has in fact been intentional – either out of some arrogant belief that “we elites know better than you do” or out of a vengeful desire to punish the Republicans, or the conservatives, or the entrepreneurs, or the bourgeoisie, or whoever they choose to detest most at any given moment. Upon reflection, few of the nation’s ills during the Obama administration can honestly be called anything but their conscious plans.
