"The truth is that Obama does not work particularly well with Democrats, so it seems ludicrous to imagine he would be fishing for chum in the Republican stream. He is a man who is all about himself, who relates well only to those who greet him with adulation. A man like that can lead a revolution, as witness Hugo Chavez. But America does not need a revolution, it needs a reawakening, a rededication, a revivification. That is not likely to come from someone whose idea of inspiring people to better their lives is to get them onto food stamps"
