Talk about throwing a "reality" wet blanket on an Obama "I'm so hot" fire. Just two days ago President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden were beating their chests about the impact of their jobs-not-lost Porkulus, uh, Stimulus Bill. Now, on the heels of this preening, Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC) counters with this:

The Democrats' arrogance and audacious power-grabs have made Americans stand up and say, ‘Enough is enough. We now see all too clearly that the hope and change the Democrats had in mind was nothing more than a retread of the failed and discredited socialist policies that have been the enemy of freedom for centuries all over the world.

At a time when I fear America is teetering towards tyranny, I was thrilled to hear that CPAC adopted the theme of saving freedom for this year's meeting.

These incisive words were delivered to a packed Conservative Political Action Conference audience on February 18th.

If by "teetering towards tyranny" Sen. DeMint means an Administration that speaks like thugs and street-brawlers, and has direct associations with like-kind, then he might be on to something.
