The President of Inaction

leave a comment »

Obama’s tepid approach these days shows a man disinterested in his job for which he’s being paid. I think he feels his job description should include the title of “rockstar”. I’m beginning to think that Obama could care less about his role as president.

Obama-Arrogant-SneerWe sat back and watched him do very little with respect to responding to all the scandals that have come down his way. Benghazi, still no real investigation of what happened there. Bergdahl, in the rearview, out of sight, out of mind. IRS scandals, bah, let Koskinen handle it. Obama’s got very little to do with any of this, except spend time playing golf.

Then there’s Obama’s reactions and responses to Vlad Putin’s actions in Ukraine. This has been such a dismal lack of real leadership. We all know that Russia’s stirring up the unrest in Ukraine – and yet, we’re just taking Putin’s word for it.

And there’s the current flareup in Gaza. Obama probably thinks it’s all Israel’s fault and they should just give up, have all the Jews gassed, and let the Palestinians come in so ISIS can check the block on their whole “world domination” theory. However, even Obama is missing the point on this one – if Hamas stops the rockets, Israel would leave Gaza alone. But that’s not good enough for Hamas. And Obama, in showing lack of support for our “ally” treats them no better than the “adversary”.

And with respect to ISIS, where are we with that? Obama sat back and with 300 military advisers and maybe a few drones here and there (oh, those are popular now?). So instead of US aid, where we have only been working Iraq as our pet politi-forming project for over a decade, in comes Iran. Wow. That’s a switch.

Back home, Obama couldn’t be troubled from all his fundraising activities for Udall in Colorado (which Udall didn’t show up for, by the way – totally funny). He’s been jet-setting all over the country for photo opportunities while his latest sock puppet, Josh Earnest answers any questions we might have.

No, while we have people into the tens of thousands streaming across the border, he couldn’t be bothered to go to the border himself, since he said it would just be a “photo op”, yet he posed for a pic with Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, since Hick is facing getting his own clock cleaned soon.

And with the recent downing of Malayian Air Flight 17 in Ukraine yesterday with 23 Americans on board, Obama couldn’t be troubled to leave a fundraiser event in New York to return to the White House with nothing more than “it looks like a terrible tragedy”. He seemed to be more concerned about Bowe Bergdahl, who could still face charges for desertion (and who is happening to get a new posting back in the Army) than 23 innocents.

And back to the fundraising.

I’m really thinking Obama has no desire to be the President anymore. I think he’s really tired…really tired of being beaten up by the GOP and the Tea Party, even his own party. I think he laments having only a 41% approval rating, which continues to fall. I think he would rather be out playing with the Hollywood elite and standing for photo ops with fellow Democrats than go see the tragedy at the border. He doesn’t have the machismo to go toe-to-toe with Putin.

No, he wants to go out and soak up the love from the Obamadrones that are still out there going “Mmm, Mmm, Mmm”, play community organizer, and cap it all off with a round of golf.

It’s real sad, really. Obama doesn’t believe in American exceptionalism. And with his attitude, he’s showing it though his lack of real leadership in any thing.

To my friends.

Democrats Change Platform by Fiat

with one comment

Kinda makes you wonder who’s really pulling the strings…

Today, the DNC made a change to their party platform that, rather forcefully, returned to the platform, language that supported God and recognized that Jerusalem was the capital of Israel.

But I really have a tough time believing that the Governor Ted Strickland, who was the chair of the committee that wrote the national platform, didn’t see this one until late last night when they drafted the amendment.

Now listen to the video and see if you think 2/3’s majority of the party voted to put “God” and “Jerusalem” back into the platform.  Now I know the audio on this is extremely subjective, but it would seem that this one was ramrodded.  I did read that one of the commenters of this clip ran the audio through Audacity and measured that the waveform of the “no” votes was clearly louder.  Anyway, what’s your opinion?

Vote One: It was pretty clear to me that it was “No”.

Vote Two: It wasn’t clear, but it sounded like the “no’s” still had it.

Did you hear what the woman behind Mr. Villaraigosa said.  She said, “You gotta rule, and then let them do what they’re gonna do”.   She urged him to basically make a decision and then move forward.

Vote Three: It was dead even.  So even if the “aye’s” had it, it wasn’t a 2/3’s majority.

So much for majority rule.  I guess the DNC is ruled by the same forces that drive the “Great Taste, Less Filling” crowd cheer, now.

Middle East Peace: It Evaded Einstein

leave a comment »

This week, the complete archives of Professor Albert Einstein are going online – something that should make for some interest for the new generation who has hair wilder than his, but I digress.

One thing that did surface that was of particular interest was that it was noted that Professor Einstein couldn’t even come to a solution on how to have peace in the Middle East.  He had quite a bit of thought on the topic, but for some reason, just couldn’t figure out a way to make the Arabs, Jews, Christians, and the rest of the heathen play together in the same sandbox without kicking each other’s sand castle down in honor of their religion.

Interestingly, Benjamin Netanyahu’s IQ is estimated to be around 180, making the Israeli leader smarter than the man equated to have super-genius.  Einstein’s IQ is rated at about 160.  I guess with one of the smartest men in the political world currently sitting in the Middle East and debating the very thing that Einstein couldn’t figure out, I guess we should be expecting great things…?

Nah.  Won’t happen – because the problem is not one of academics, but intolerant ideology – something that doesn’t require high intelligence to have.
