The damage to America being wrought by Obama is not a question of either incompetence or intent, but a combination of both.
Obama’s worst instincts are amplified by a fawning, uncritical media and a collection of equally inexperienced, immature far-left subordinates, whose “the ends justify the means” mindset permits them to tell any lie, violate any law, and even indifferently risk lives as long as it serves their political objectives.
For example, the Obama Administration not only facilitated the present underage illegal immigrant crisis on our southern border through the June 2012 deferred action for childhood arrivals (DACA) executive order–but the children are now being irresponsibly used by the administration as political human shields to force Republican capitulation on amnesty.
Not since the Civil War has the United States been so politically divided.
Unlike then, when the political divisions were a natural consequence of differing opinions over slavery and states’ rights, the Obama Administration appears to have a deliberate policy to divide the country along race, ethnic, class, and gender lines–and undermine the nation’s economy and national security.
The challenges facing the country cannot be addressed effectively as long as Obama remains in the White House because he is intellectually and emotionally incapable of making the right decisions for America.
Abraham Lincoln prevented national suicide. Barack Obama seems to desire it.
