The Audacity of Hope indeed

Like it or not, Obama has big plans for you and me. Even Mother Jones is catching on to the cultishness of it all. This is from the Messiah's stump speech as transcribed on their pages:

That moment when we shed our fears and our doubts. When we don't settle for what the cynics tell us we have to accept. Because cynicism is a sorry sort of wisdom. When we instead join arm in arm and decide we are going to remake this country, by block, precinct by precinct, county by county, state by state. That's what hope is.

I like my block, thank you very much, and the last thing I want is a mob of Obamacrats joining arm in arm to remake it. From my perspective, what he describes is not "hope", but a freaking nightmare. Indeed, his lofty platitudes are sounding more and more like the threats of a liberal fascist, and I'm not liking this one bit.

NRO found these plans, as described by his wife, Michelle:

Barack Obama will require you to work. He is going to demand that you shed your cynicism. That you put down your divisions. That you come out of your isolation, that you move out of your zones. That you push yourselves to be better. And that you engage. Barack will never allow you to go back to your lives as usual, uninvolved, uninformed.

It's Pretty audacious to make all these plans for us, isn't it? As Jim Geraghty asks, And what if we kind of like our lives as usual?

Update: Here is Allahpundit's take on this whole creepy scenario.
