As the magnitude of devastation grows by the hour in Japan, I can’t help but imagine such an event happening in this country. To compound the enormity of such an event here, imagine such an event happening while the Obama Administration is in charge. This President lacks even the most basic leadership skills. It would be ‘Captain Queeg’ on a national scale. For those unfamiliar, I’m referring to ‘The Caine Mutiny’..the World War 2 story of a ship captain cracking under pressure. Humphrey Bogart’s portrayal has nothing on the ineptitude of Barack Obama.
As the Middle East goes up in flames we have a President hosting a summit on bullying at the White House. An economy that continues to struggle and Obama proposes high speed rail and high speed internet. Many individual states are drowning in debt of their own and this President decides to side with the Unions over the taxpayers! The federal government can’t print money fast enough and the Administration can’t seem to grasp the reality of cutting spending. Lip service in the least.
American leadership in the world is all but non-existent under this President. His “foreign policy” is not to have one! What else can you expect from a man who seems to have contempt for the values of this nation? You can likely expect an aloof President who manages to alienate the vast majority of his countrymen while courting favor with the politically expedient “flavor of the month” group.
Demeaning, discouraging, and disheartening.
Michael Barone @ ‘The Washington Examiner’ echoes my sentiments as well!
