Obama: From Bad to Worse
“I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal; this was the moment when we ended a war and secured our nation and restored our image as the last, best hope on earth.” – Barack Obama, 2008
Flash forward: A severe and unrelenting recession, 10% unemployment – almost 18% under employment, mountains of catastrophic debt, 3 terror attacks and badly handled responses, a health care program no one wants, Arizona is so fed up with the administration’s border security ineptness they take matters into their own hands and the country cheers. North Korea attacks a South Korean vessel and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton hands out teddy bears in China. A BP oil rig explodes and Team Obama couldn’t be bothered. In fact, the administration’s oil spill response is little more than a pathetic puppet show that reminds us that how truly incompetent big government can be.
Since taking office, President Obama has failed each and every time he was presented with a challenge. Yet he parades the country, podium in tow, and pontificates constantly, as if by his very presence and flowery words the problem will right itself. That’s not leadership – it’s narcissism.
“Well, when you anoint yourself King Canute, you mustn’t be surprised when your subjects expect you to command the tides.” – Dr. Charles Krauthammer, May 2010
Peggy Noonan, a RINO who supported Obama over McCain/Palin simply because he appealed to her more urbane, east coast instincts has also had enough of the man, “This is his third political disaster in his first 18 months in office. And they were all, as they say, unforced errors, meaning they were shaped by the president’s political judgment and instincts.” Really? Now you get what real conservatives were warning the nation about two years ago?
I don’t see how much will change between now and November. Obama will run around the country polarizing the population and arrogantly governing against the will of the people. His popularity will continue to slide and Democrats will run for the hills as Obama’s presidency circles the drain.
So I will put this post in a time capsule for 3 months. Nothing will have change. Until then, farewell.
