For conservatives, nothing prepared us for the horror and sadness of watching President Obama begin to dismantle the Republic in his first term. Out of control spending and business-killing regulations, culminating in the monstrosity of ObamaCare, polarized the nation.
But less than a year into his second term, Obama has become the "Great Uniter" Chris Matthews predicted. Now it's not just conservatives who think he's a disaster.
Americans will take a lot of crap. I mean, we accepted Star Wars Part One (which was worse, Annakin or Jar-Jar? Comments below.) We dealt with Kevin Federline's rapping. We even suspended disbelief when NBC told us Chelsea Clinton would develop into real journalist. We did those things together. These were happy times for America, really.
But not even liberals can put up with Obama's arrogance, or total disregard for America's ability to use their eyes. How else to explain the Obama State Department spokesperson Jen Psaki's insistence that Secretary John Kerry was not on his
boat yacht one percenter recreational cruising vessel while the Egyptian military was staging a coup?
America - But Ms. Psaki! We have pictures of Secretary Kerry on his One Percenter Recreational Cruising Vessel!
Jen Psaki - Don't care.
America - But?
Jen Psaki - Wasn't him. Wasn't there. You're a racist! Tin Foil hat! Grassy knoll! Next question.
Kerry's disinterest, and Psaki's attempt to cover it up, are merely the most recent manifestations of the Obama administration's lack of foreign policy principles, let alone a comprehensive plan. (When asked for comment on his lead diplomat's curious level of incuriousness about Egypt, Obama said, "Wait a minute. Let me just hit this shot. I'm so gonna birdie this bitch!")
Politico has come to the same conclusion, stating:
Establishment Democrats, never big fans of this president to begin with, are starting to speak out. And reporters are tripping over themselves to condemn lies, bullying and shadiness in the Obama administration.
