George Will: Obama Eloquence Fatigue

I love George Will. He and men like Paul Gigot are among the reasons I am a conservative. People Like Nacy Pelosi and Paul Krugman were just as influential in an entirely different way.
At the heart of conservatism is a desire to view the world as it is, not as we wish it to be. George Will sums up Barack Obama's rhetorical excesses with the sententious observation:
The world is a fact, and facts are indeed stubborn things. After eight years, if such there are, of an Obama presidency, if such there is, the world will look much as it does today — if we are lucky.

You should, of course, read the whole thing.
