I never wondered whether Barack Obama was a Democrat.  I certainly never wondered whether he was an undercover operative for the Republican Party.  But his speech on Wednesday, and the immediate disintegration of his so-called “coalition” just may cause me to reconsider. The speech itself, was a pathetic joke.  I spelled out chapter and verse of why in my real-time...
