As Matt Patterson pointed out in these pages, Obama is the Affirmative Action President. He was elected to make up for America's never-ending guilt about black folks. That obsessional guilt trip works so well that it's landed us in racial socialism, also called affirmative action. Marxism whips up resentments of the poor against the rich -- but in fact it empowers only the left. Well, racial socialism does the same thing. It whips up "people of color" against evil palefaces in order to empower the left. It's the Ku Klux Klan in new sheets.
President Obama's inability to be decisive and inept leadership stem not from his lack of executive experience, but from his grounding in a specific political culture, the one he sought out in Chicago. His entry and indoctrination into the political culture of black leadership there have not prepared him for a positive role as chief executive officer.
