    This letter to editor of WSJ relates to Americans being fed liberal caca ……..notably last paragraph:
    Emasculated Voters Get What They Deserve

    Yale Prof. David Gelernter does a superb job recapping President Obama’s serial abuse of executive power over the last eight years, the damage he did to America’s standing in the world and to Americans’ confidence in their own government, and the impending damage of Obama III in a Hillary Clinton administration (“Trump and the Emasculated Voter,” op-ed, Oct. 15).

    The Obama/Clinton/progressive contempt for average voters is woven into their DNA, but is it undeserved? President Obama did, after all, win re-election rather handily. His job approval rating stands today above 50%, not too shabby after years of treating voters as six-year-olds, ignoring Congress, trying to bully the Supreme Court, ruling by executive fiat and overseeing a feeble economic recovery. If Mr. Gelernter is right that President Obama has governed like a stern baby sitter and “doesn’t give a damn what people think,” what does that say about we, the emasculated people, and the state of the nation? Consider, too, that without the Constitution’s 22nd Amendment preventing a third run for president, Mr. Obama might be on the way to another victory.

    Emasculated voters seem reconciled to a new progressive vision of the American way of life and a new world order with America no longer leader of the pack. The profound contempt that the president and Mrs. Clinton share for Americans isn’t a deal breaker. If Mrs. Clinton can run on her character as we know it and President Obama’s record as we’ve experienced it and still win, progressive treatment of Americans as dimwits is more than justified.
