America's unnatural aristocracy

Chronicles' Clyde Wilson:
Thomas Jefferson and John Adams agreed that republican government should be in the hands of a “natural aristocracy” of talent and virtue. Jefferson said that no one is born with the right to ride with boot and spurs over the backs of the citizens. Adams feared that the people might be misled by the glamour of high birth into choosing the wrong rulers.

If Americans took this provision of the Constitution seriously, Barack Obama would never have been allowed to run for president. All of his adult life Obama has been treated as a privileged aristocrat because of who he is. He came to every position he has filled without any record of legislative, administrative, or military service or accomplishment. He has been raised to power entirely because of his birth. There are tens of thousands like him spread throughout all the ruling institutions of the United States. He has a smooth manner and a gift for low-key demagoguery, but no other qualifications for the most powerful office in the world.
Also, in the new hierarchy of truths in the left's doctrine, anti-Christian and anti-white outrank women and gays, so the Mohammedans get a free pass. By the way, I think harping on Obama is tiresome; he's only a symptom, and I don't think he's a Mohammedan. Rather, an agnostic WASP with a partly international background (in college he hung out with the actual foreign kids, not with blacks), not really black, for example. He was born in Honolulu.
