He finally admits he’s unfit for leadership.
Via the New York Post.
First I did a double take. He said what? I read it again and the shock waves followed.
A beleaguered President Obama has told aides it would be so much easier to be the president of China, The New York Times reports.
There are two ways to read the remark, which is attributed to anonymous aides. One is that Obama resents the burden of global leadership that comes with the American presidency. The other is that he longs for an authoritarian system, where he need tolerate no dissent.
Under either or both interpretations, his confession carries a dose of self-pity that means Obama has hit a wall.
He is in over his head, and he knows it.
Even before the horror in Japan, the president faced a litany of nightmares. From Libya to Iran to Afghanistan to gas prices, unemployment and rising debt, Obama is surrounded by serious trouble.
His responses range from halfhearted to wrongheaded. Nothing is working. Unhappy voters already repudiated his first two years and might fire him when they get the chance. It is a moment that brings home the truth of the sign on Harry Truman’s desk: “The buck stops here.”
Yet my suspicion is that it’s not the problems per se that have Obama envying a lower rung on the global ladder. It’s that he regards them as endless distractions that keep getting in the way of his transformative agenda.
He is a man of the faculty lounge who wants a blank slate so he can remake the nation into a more perfect place, as he sees it. Remember, he greeted his election with the messiah-like claim that future generations would say, “This was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal.”
But damn it, the country and the world won’t cooperate. Because he has no significant experience that would give him a framework for any other response, he is reduced to vaporous platitudes that dispirit allies and embolden adversaries.
He wants America to be less exceptional and more like every other nation. He’s uncomfortable with our status as the No. 1 superpower, as he made clear with his apology tours and by submitting to the lowest common denominator in the United Nations.
He talks about wanting Moammar Khadafy to go but takes no action to make it happen and even signed on to an arms embargo that the State Department says bars our supplying the rebels.
As The Wall Street Journal wrote, the rising slaughter reveals “what the world without US leadership looks like.”
Meanwhile, he punts on the budget mess, as if details are beneath him. On soaring gas prices, the purpose of his dreary Friday press conference, his policy seems to be peevishness that he must be bothered.
The socialist community organizer from Chicago pulls the covers over his head and wishes the big bad world just go away. It would be so much better if he had control over the masses like the authoritarian communists in Bejiing.
Does any of this surprise you?
I made these predictions of Obama’s epic fail back in November, 2008:
……This newly anointed moron will make Jimmy Carter and Bubba Clinton’s disastrous domestic policies, foreign policy debacles, and malicious pursuit to eviscerate the military, pale in comparison.
……Obama and his Democrat majority will increase taxes and spending. They will carry out their threat to take money from taxpayers and give money to those who do not pay taxes, let alone work. The trillion dollars he plans on spending will be a drop in the bucket before he’s through. It won’t take long before the economy collapses completely.
……America’s national security just took a big hit. Illegal aliens and terrorist cells that have already been crossing the border because there’s no real obstacle, now have an open invitation.
……Our war against Islamofacism will likely suffer, if not grind to a halt. American troops who fought so valiantly in the region of the world that breeds the terrorists who attacked this country, will now be forbidden to do what it takes to accomplish the mission and prosecuted for doing so.
The Eurotrash, North Korea, China, Venezuela, and Islamic comrades (Iran, in particular) are rejoicing in this latest tragicomic episode in American politics. We are now saddled with a corrupt, socialist, terrorist cavorting, narcissistic charlatan, who suits their agenda. Obamabots placed all of their faith and adoration into an empty suit with serious defects.
Obama will kowtow to all of the world’s malefactors, fulfilling his promise to ‘negotiate without pre-conditions’. To all the asshats who foolishly believe that being a pliant doormat will somehow make the United States a more “moral, respected, endearing, popular, positive role model”, brace yourselves. It will only serve to encourage hostile nations, Islamic ones in particular, to take advantage of a deteriorated American political and economic system, rife with Democratic milksops. This, of course, is supposed to improve our ‘world image’. If you think Clinton’s non-response to the numerous terrorist attacks on his watch gave al Qaeda the green light, Obama will be in the fucking control tower giving the okay for take off.
Every one of them came true. Every. Fucking. One.
Anybody who did research on this loser could have easily figured out what we were in for. Knowing this, lots of people raised hell about Obama throughout the campaign.
Don’t say you weren’t warned.
