As Obama moves from one disaster to the next disaster, it’s clear that he’s lacking the support from citizens here at home, is viewed skeptically by people abroad, and lacks the respect from foreign leaders that the Great Seal of the United States should confer on any president.
“A CBS News/ New York Times poll out tonight find only 40% of Americans are satisfied with the presidency of Barack Obama,” reported CBS News last week. “59% say they're disappointed.”
Only 59 percent? What’s wrong with these people?
Obama’s been beaten on Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, and now in Ukraine.
He’s made enemies of allies such as Israel, Saudi Arabia and Pakistan.
Europe, for the second time since the Prague Spring, is hearing the goosestep march of Russian troops in Europe under the leadership of their new Man of Steel, Vlad the Impaler Putin, as Russians tear apart the Ukraine.
Under Obama’s leadership Russia has begun to sweep up the scattered pieces of their old, lost, iron empire.
And for those who think that Russia is just going into their own back garden, use Google to find out what that means.
Obama, according to our friends over at the Weekly Standard, in response has skipped another national security meeting.
This is how wars start, people.
And just because it won’t happen next week or next year, doesn’t mean I won’t eventually tell you I told you so. Although you’ll probably have died in a thermonuclear blast by then, so I won’t have the satisfaction of you hearing me.
And I’m only slightly joking.
Are we in the United States more secure or less secure than we were six years ago?
Less secure, and it’s growing more acute by the day.
“I think Putin is playing chess,” says Rep. Mike Rogers (R-MI), chair of the House Intelligence Committee, “and I think we're playing marbles.”
That would be true, but we have lost our marbles a long time ago.
Because Obama’s brand of bungling isn’t limited to foreign affairs, although our problems overseas will be harder to repair than the ones at home.
Before the newest “Greatest Crisis Ever” Obama created in the Ukraine, he was still mired in the multi-year botched attempt at implementing the newest “Worst Legislation Ever” in Obamacare.
Prior to that, he was administering the “Worst Recovery Ever,” after squandering the “Most Money Ever” on stimulus programs that did not stimulate anything.
If John McCain in 2008 had produced a commercial pointing out the real missteps, the incompetence and pure overall stupidity that we have witnessed from this administration for the last six years, Oprah Winfrey would have said “He’s just saying that because Obama is black.”
Which gets us to the question: How on earth did a great nation elect such a strange, unqualified and incompetent man president of the United States, twice?
And no, it’s not because he’s black.
It’s because the GOP is stupid.
The GOP is still more interested hassling their own, than they are in beating Obama.
If Republican National Chairman Reince Priebus and the RNC spent more time worrying about Obama and less time worrying about Sen. Ted Cruz and Lt. Col. Allen West, perhaps they wouldn’t have been bested in 2012.
For all the faux handwringing that the establishment went through about Cruz’ filibuster on Obamacare, he was right, and they were wrong.
It’s time to get stern, to get hardened and to stop playing prevent defense.
It’s time the GOP told the truth: This has been the worst administration in the history of the Republic, and it’s past time for Obama and his enablers* to go.
* enablers to include, but not limited to:
The Department of Energy
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell (This one's personal)
