Barack Obama’s Snubmarine


Pages: 1 2

It should be clear by this time that Barack Obama is not good for America, not good for Israel and the Middle East, and, on the larger scale, not good for the world. The disaster of his presidency will ramify for years to come whether he is re-elected or not. And the so-called “free world” will be the worse for his administration’s policy blunders and its abdication of America’s historic and “exceptional” role as liberty’s guarantor.

The damage he has inflicted on the nation he was elected to lead has been rehearsed at great length by many observers and in many different places. Here we might briefly note his broken campaign promises (Gitmo, network transparency, crossing the aisle, renditions, predator strikes, etc.); his cold- shouldering of Congress in the Libyan adventure, a violation of American law; the implication of his administration in the Gunwalker scandal, which makes Watergate look like small potatoes; the illegitimate switch in the order of creditors in the Chrysler meltdown; his astronomical inflation of the American debt and deficit and the consequent downgrading of the country’s credit rating; his patronage of the public sector unions, the outrage of crony capitalism (Siga), and favoring the bogus Green industry at taxpayer’s expense (Solyndra, Beacon Power Corp.); his refusal to drill for oil domestically and his deferral of the Canadian Keystone Pipeline project, which would have fostered significant employment and helped free the United States from dependence on Middle Eastern and Latin American tyrannies; his support for the anarchic and disreputable Occupy Wall Street movement—this is only an abridged list. That he has enfeebled the United States, perhaps more than any other president in its history, including the lamentable Jimmy Carter, cannot be doubted by anyone who retains a modicum of political and fiscal sanity.

His inept meddling in the Middle East is only more of the same, shunted offshore. Obama has endorsed Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s increasingly fundamentalist Justice and Development Party in Turkey, which is manifestly hostile to the U.S. An Islamist government has been installed in Tunisia in a revolution heralded by Obama as a beacon of Maghrebian liberty. Obama’s complicity in deposing Egypt’s Hosni Mubarak, an American ally, has had the effect of empowering the anti-American Muslim Brotherhood and jeopardizing the peace treaty with Israel. The region is now ready to erupt. Similarly, his part in ousting Libya’s Muammar Gaddafi, who posed no threat to American interests, created a radical, Sharia-inspired government in Tripoli and, additionally, has released a flood of looted weaponry into Gaza, where it will be used by Hamas’s terrorist regime. It is evident that, like a reversal of the Midas story, whatever Obama touches turns into lead—or in the case of his reluctance to seriously challenge the Iranian ayatollahs, into uranium.

With respect to Israel, one of America’s staunchest allies and crucial technological and intelligence partners, Obama’s disdain and bad faith are obvious to all except those who are themselves anti-Israel or who are intent on deceiving themselves because unwilling to admit that their electoral support was egregiously misplaced. Obama’s response to French president Nicolas Sarkozy’s recent diplomatic gaffe in calling Benjamin Netanyahu a “liar” speaks volumes: “You may be sick of [or “fed up with”] him, but me, I have to deal with him every day.” The administration’s attempt via Ben Rhodes, Deputy National Security Advisor for Strategic Communications, to soften and deflect the plain connotation of the statement is frankly disingenuous.

    We are not so stupid as to be led around by the nose by Israelis using our own disdain for our President. Jimmy Carter was good President and has hand-built more settlements than you could ever hope to. He even gave you Shah who you loved so much.

      Carter a good president? ROFLMAO!!! Prior to Obama, Carter was the worst president in my lifetime (and I go back to Eisenhower), he continues to be a global embarassment to this day. His cluelessness and arrogance is only exceeded by the current occupant of the White House.

        I would say Ford was the worst president in my lifetime.

      Ummmm……It was Carter and the CIA who helped to overthrow the Shah, in favor of the mad mullahs currently hell-bent on destroying the world to usher in their 12th imam, the mahdi. The ONLY thin Carter has done that's been "good" is his "habitat for humanity" stuff. His presidency was arguably one of the worst in the history of this nation.

      My God! Are you really that idiotic, or are you just trying to aggravate people for sport?

        He appointed Brzezinski to the NSC. Brzezinski came up with part of the winning strategy to break the USSR. Bad President!!!

      Carter indeed was a good president for his peanut co. However as a peasant, he ordered destruction of an US ally and millions of Iranians are now suffering under Islam dictator because of his act. If you support that, you're no different than it, you just want to impose your idiology onto others.
      Omama is superseding Carter by not only overthrowing one foreigh government, but three so far and he is continuely doing that, which not only made millions of Arab people suffer, but created bunch of enemies to the US and the free world.
      Unfortunately many uneducated (unintentionally or intentionally) people's mentality is that they could be 'peacefully' 'coexist' with Islam by giving it something (such as Israel) . Don't say you didn't get warned about this when you realize all too late what they really want is a 'peacefully' 'domination' by 'submission'.

    Wow! You have encapsulated the American President's disastrous term of office as precisely as anything i have read about him to date. I hope your article is syndicated world wide the more so to the voters in the USA. Congratulations on an exceptional cameo of the most disastrous white house occupant yet!

    • StephenD

      Ditto! This article spells out what I could not. It precisely portrays this Administration for what it is…Anti-American. I hope the world can hold together until Gingrich gets in office.
      Can you imagine a genuine affinity toward Israel emanating from the W.H. ? All hand-outs (to the UN and others) stop until they prove their shared values with us? It really can be a far better world in 2012.

    THIS JUST IN…..

    Jimmy Carter loses "WORST U.S. PRESIDENT EVER" tittle to Barack Obama!

    Barack Obama takes "WORST U.S. PRESIDENT EVER" title from Jimmy Carter. Carter was notified late yesterday of the loss. Carter expressed bitter disappointment at the loss. Carter stated that when he was president, he worked hand in hand with the Middle-East Anti American Coalition to obtain the tittle and was assured by Middle-East Anti American Coalition that the "WORST U.S. PRESIDENT EVER" title would be his for at least the next 100 years.

    Obama was proud of his accomplishment and stated that THIS title he has ACTUALLY EARNED!

    Not like his Nobel prize that he received for JUST SHOWING UP!

    Obama can be sucinctly described by the many treatises written about the anti Christ. He is a charismatic, well spoken and a celebrity figure who is well liked and hence taken in by most people. However in the end he is simply diabolical and beholden only to the dark side.

    • Ericae

      moron.

      In truth he is not very carismatic, he can't speak without a telaprompter, and only ignorant brain dead fools like him …But I stil gave you a thumbs up

    It seems that Barak Obama is on track to be called the most foolish president in American history.
