by James Delingpole
If the election of Barack Obama fills you with dread rather than elation, you're not alone. In fact, pull up a chair next to James Delingpole who has seen this all before and knows exactly where America is heading: into a morass of sprawling government that will slowly start suffocating our economy, our liberties and our culture. You might as well call it socialism, he says, because that's what it is. In Britain it came in under the smiling face of Tony Blair and has left the British bulldog castrated, whimpering and sick; in America it's coming under the vibrant, youthful guise of Barack Obama, but the result will be the same. The brave, independent American eagle will become the American turkey, oven-basted by the nanny state of Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid.
James Delingpole, whose coruscating wit and laugh-out-loud asides have earned his fame as a British political commentator, is here to tell us how bad things could really get: from socialized medicine, to a further dumbing down of an already execrable school system, to banning competitive games because they might disturb children's self-esteem. Hilarious, witty, impassioned and perceptive, "Welcome to Obamaland" will have you laughing through your tears and taking courage from the eternal truth of conservative convictions.
