With the advent of sequestration, it is now clear that President Obama is willing to throw Americans under the bus in pursuit of his vision of a transformed America. He is more than content to break eggs to make his utopian omelet.

President Obama is one of the great political knife-fighters in modern history. He is a failed president — his economy is bleak, his foreign policy bleaker, his vision for American even bleaker still. But he wins. He wins by losing.

The media was worth five points to Barack Obama during the last election cycle. They do his bidding, and then complain when he treats them like doormats.

There is a clash at the heart of today's Republican Party. The Tea Party wants to change tactics. The establishment wants to discard principle.

Obama knows he will not be able to pass either a vast gun control scheme or an immigration program that lacks significant border enforcement. He has no intention of passing such legislation. He proposes such legislation to demonize his opposition as evil — racist and uncaring about children.

On Monday, President Barack Obama delivered a monumental address to the nation. It wasn't monumental in terms of rhetoric — in fact, it wasn't even memorable. It was monumental because it signaled for the first time just how grand Obama's ambitions for the left are.

Obama's implication is clear: disagree with him, and you are okay with what happened in Sandy Hook.

The left has become a collection of bullies, knee-jerk moralists without the morality. They aren't interested in the best policy.

The horror of the massacre of innocents at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., struck at the fabric of the American tapestry. Virtually every American has spent the last few days in a haze — shocked at the nature of evil, confused and frustrated by the inability to prevent such an atrocity, fearful at the possibility of such a monstrous occurrence repeating itself.

America is no longer a republic. It is a thugocracy. So long as fairness of result trumps fairness of process — so long as a majority can trample the rights of a minority, then point at a simple majority vote as moral legitimation — America has lost its way.

Problems surround us. They threaten to bankrupt us — or, just as bad, to doom our children and grandchildren to poverty and subjugation. Yet the American people look away from that incipient disaster, trusting the happy talk of Democrats.

Here's the brutal truth: The American people seem far more interested in what happens in the bedroom than they do what happens on the battlefield. How else to explain the media's fascination with CIA Director David Petraeus' steamy sex scandal, even as they ignore the ramifications for the investigation of four murdered Americans in Benghazi.

The Democratic Party and the Republican Party are no longer arguing over means. We are arguing over ends. Fairness lies at the root of the Democratic agenda. It's a leveling agenda, not a growth agenda. Strength and prosperity for everyone lie at the root of the Republican agenda.
