Obama as a 2 dimensional politician

Mark Steyn is a great wordsmith, and his latest column on the two-dimensionality of Obama is worth reading. Key paragraph:

"In his Wednesday-night infomercial, Obama declared that his 'fundamental belief' was that 'I am my brother’s keeper.' Back in Kenya, his brother lives in a shack on 12 bucks a year. If Barack is his brother’s keeper, why couldn’t he send him a ten-dollar bill and nearly double the guy’s income? The reality is that Barack Obama assumes the government should be his brother’s keeper, and his aunt’s keeper. Why be surprised by that? For 20 years in Illinois, Obama has marinated in the swamps of the Chicago political machine and the campus radicalism of William Ayers and Rashid Khalidi. In such a world, the redistributive urge is more or less a minimum entry qualification."
