“The most difficult subjects can be explained to the most slow-witted man if he has not formed any idea of them already; but the simplest thing cannot be made clear to the most intelligent man if he is firmly persuaded that he knows already, without a shadow of doubt, what is laid before him.”     Leo Tolstoy

Quote Of The Day: Michelle Obama Edition

by Doug Mataconis

Forget Jeremiah Wright.

Does Barack Obama agree with his wife ?

“If we don’t wake up as a nation with a new kind of leadership … for how we want this country to work, then we won’t get universal health care,” she said.

“The truth is, in order to get things like universal health care and a revamped education system, then someone is going to have to give up a piece of their pie so that someone else can have more.”

I may be mistaken, but I’m pretty sure I’ve heard that song before.

  1. I knew that I saw this fear predicted somewhere and I’ve found it. Two-hundred and twenty years ago last year, John Adams predicted what would happen if we had too much democracy. It is literally amazing how correct he was: http://press-pubs.uchicago.edu/founders/documents/v1ch16s15.html

  2. It is quite obvious that BO & MO are closet Marxists. Look at the teachings of their church, and the not-so-subdued animosity of MO. What do we need here, a visit from “Obvious Man?”

  5. Justin, I read your link, and the thought that comes to my mind is Vizzini in the Princess Bride, complaining that “you are trying to steal what I have rightfully stolen.”

    That could be used to support any number of arguments by different people. Perhaps I will know the answer to this later on, but could you humor me in the mean time and let me know which argument you’re using this quote to support?
