I know that many people truly believe that Barack Obama is the vanguard of a movement to consciously destroy America as we know it.
I know that those people truly imbue he and his handlers with super powers to wreck our way of life.

And I know that Obama himself has blathered about “fundamentally transforming” our country.
But, folks, this clown has been in office for a little over five years; and all he has proven is that he and his minions will call you a racist if you point out how truly incompetent they are. Well, so be it because here we go.
If you want several examples, let’s look at how he has handled recent brushes with the crazy people in the rest of the world.

Leon Panetta—former Clinton Chief of Staff, Obama CIA director, and Secretary of Defense—suggested on a national TV show back when Obama was still running for the Senate that a President must be feared.
After his Obama service, at the CIA and Defense, at a late 2013 session on the budget sponsored by the Wall Street Journal, he said, “We govern either by leadership or crisis. . . . If leadership is not there, then we govern by crisis…Clearly, this town has been governing by crisis after crisis after crisis.
“You have to engage in the process. This is a town where it’s not enough to feel you have the right answers. You’ve got to roll up your sleeves and you’ve got to really engage in the process . . . that’s what governing is all about.” He was, of course, referring to the President.
While Panetta was talking about the budget fight that led to a kind-of-sort-of shutdown–which then morphed into the Obamacare launch debacle–the fact is that everybody watches the news coming out of Washington. They watch it on CNN and Al Jazeera all over the world. Maybe even on Fox.
When those in places like Gaza, Nigeria, China, North Korea, and a host of places where stupid things happen in the names of so called leaders see a preoccupied President who is diffident towards our role in the rest of the world to begin with, things happen.
Things like a group on nobody’s radar snatching 300 Nigerian Christian girls and selling them into slavery.
Michelle Obama is furious.
But the best she can do is a photo with a twitter hashtag (whatever that is).
Because the odds of using Seal Team Six to go get them are pretty low—especially at this point. Delta Force is now reserved for things that won’t offend any foreign, sovereign governments which would rather we not embarrass them by using the best special operators in the world to go get those girls. Especially nations like that that are run by a guy named Goodluck Jonathan.
When some clown sharia judge in the Sudan sentences the pregnant wife of an American to have the baby, nurse the baby, take 100 lashes, and then be killed for refusing to renounce Christianity without taking into account that we might send some Navy Seals to break her out, that’s because he assumes this President won’t. And he’s probably right.
We’ll allow the NBA to take Donald Sterling’s team away from him because he’s a douchebag, but we won’t do anything about the Sultan of Brunei’s ownership of property in the United States like the Beverly Hills Hotel–even though he’s a much bigger douchebag than Sterling. After all, Sterling just didn’t want his skank girlfriend bringing Magic Johnson to Clippers games. The Sultan wants to stone gay folks to death inside his borders. We would call that a terrorist state in most administrations, and there would be sanctions against them doing business here. Not today.
What’s Barack’s wife’s hashtag for that? #Shariahsucksinbeverlyhills?
Presidents are supposed to lead. Sometimes they lead from a bully pulpit, and sometimes they lead with the United States Marine Corps. But they have to lead.
This President not only doesn’t want to lead domestically; he projects the opposite of what America has always been overseas. We cannot police everything; but we should stand for freedom, democracy, and human rights.
This is why Vladimir Putin can invade Crimea with impunity. He did that while a Federal agency our President had probably never heard of (the Bureau of Land Management) was busy bungling an invasion of Nevada.
If the guy in the White House thinks supporting freedom and democracy and human rights around the world is passé, then what do you think the penny ante tinhorn dictators are going to do when given an opportunity? Where does it end? With a nuclear weapon being exploded by some Sudanese national in Tulsa?
In words everybody can understand, a wimp in the White House puts us all in danger, as well as people like those 300 girls and the American’s Sudanese wife.
Do you really think either of those things would have happened if George W. Bush or Bill Clinton were in the White House?
Incompetence and indecision are worse for the nation than any particular brand of politics.
You don’t have to worry about Barack Obama destroying America. You need to worry about him ignoring America.
