President Obama returns this week from his whirlwind, “It’s good to be me” tour through continental Europe and Asia. Many here stateside are beginning to whisper that Obama is the most arrogant leader this country has seen in a generation. He holds Americans and the Constitution in utter contempt.

He fires private sector CEO’s, wages class warfare on taxpayers (the top 1% income earners pay 40% of all federal income taxes, and the bottom 50% pay a minuscule 3%), and covets open-ended power to spend taxpayers money without check that would have made Gosplaners in the Soviet Union green with envy. He turns the Constitution on its head by describing the payment of taxes as a “patriotic duty” and staggering government spending as the beneficence of his band of Platonic Guardians. He has erased the vital distinction between public and private.

Mr. Obama has taken Narcissus to a new level. He is mesmerized by his own words. He wields no delusions of his own grandeur. However, when he goes abroad he can't be effacing enough for the bows and scraping to those luminaries around him. Remember the King of Saudia Arabia, to whom our President gave obeisance, is basica lly the leader of the Wahhabi branch of Islam. Bowing to this king signals submission to Islam. Indeed, “Islam” means “submission”. And in Saudi Arabia that means the suppression of Christianity or Judaism. President Obama has apologized for the United States history with Native Americans and blacks. He gazes at radical Islam with rose-colored glasses.

Are you getting this picture? Is it becoming clearer exactly what is beginning to happen to our beloved America?

And to compound matters, our President now craves the elimina tion of nuclear weapons. Does he not remember that atomic bombs at Hiroshima and Nagasaki saved millions of both American and Japanese lives and brought a terrible war to an instant conclusion? Does he not know of the history of arms control cheating by closed and despotic nations, like the Soviet Union, Iran, Syria, North Korea, Libya, Iraq, and otherwise. Does he not know that the elimination of nuclear weapons immediately strengthens nations with massive land armies like China’s People’s Liberation Army?

Mr. Obama’s national security follies are matched by his contempt for the Constitution which he is pledged to defend and support.
