Overnight Open Thread (18 Jan 2014)

The Pacific Pivot isn't working so well. Pretty typical result based on all previous pivots. There have been, what, 19 pivots alone on jobs. How's that working out? Now comes the class warfare pivot.

Destroying the American dream is easy, just make it so the people no longer believe in themselves, and they will cling to Uncle Sam as their provider.

That is Obama’s transformation, and it is the core of the messaging pivot toward whining about “income inequality.”

America used to reject this politics of envy. Obama’s desperate pivot away from the ‘Obamacare’ debacle is betting that the transformation of the American mindset is far enough along, that he can survive through standard Marxist class warfare language, and people will forget the failure of big government that his health care law represents.

This is pretty cool. Explore the music timeline.
