We have gone from a President of the United States who, in 1983, called the Soviet Union an evil empire to a President who, in 2009, sat quietly by as a former Soviet-backed dictator called the United States an evil empire. And by apologizing on behalf of his nation for offenses perceived (regardless of whether these claims of offense were justified) by peoples that have given the world the "gifts" of Hitler, Stalin, Mussolini, Wahibism, the Sandinhistas, the gulag, beheading of apostates, the concentration camp, the suicide bomber etc., etc., this current President has passively agreed for several weeks with the dictator’s assessment of his own nation’s wickedness. And he only broke his silent acquiesence in order to announce to the world that he was relieved that he was not personally accused of any wrongdoing. Thus, we’ve gone from “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall” to “I’m grateful that President Ortega did not blame me for things that happened when I was three months old.” President Obama, apparently, is not just “the One,” he is the only one.
