Obama the triple-loser
By David Lawrence
Obama is delusional. He told a group from the Young Southeast Asian Leaders Initiative that he is proudest of three accomplishments: 1) the economic recovery, 2) Obamacare, and 3) his foreign policy.
Narcissism is narcissism. It’s egotism that loves the reflection of its own ego. But when it spills over into the president’s warped perception of reality and the reality of the world depends on his clarity, then he, our president, has endangered the world.
Boasting about accomplishments that he has not achieved is mild psychosis with possible deleterious results. Taking credit for three disasters is a failure to perceive the results of his actions.
Pride in his own failures is fodder for Obama’s electorate. They believe in his greatness because he views failure as greatness. America has become the land of suckers. Obama is the all-day purveyor of suckers. The liberals suck up to him because they like the taste of illusory accomplishments.
But we can't blame Obama for being delusory. His sycophants gave him a Nobel Prize before he did anything. He was elected president even though he was lacking in experience and accomplishment.
He talks about having reversed the economic downturn when we have millions of people who are out of work or have quit looking for work. While he has numerous chefs cooking for him at the White House, his loyal sycophants are licking food stamps. They are eating the scraps of the malnourished American Dream. Our economic recovery is like an amputee walking on his prosthetics.
Obama considers his failed economy a part of his legacy. It’s amusing that he is worried about his legacy when he is failing in the present. Does he think that he can skip over the present and create an incidental magnified past in the future?
He is proud of dropping his mediocre progressivism into the toilet bowl of history.
He eliminates jobs, spreads around side dishes of his own racism, and diminishes his black brothers’ economic power. He has expanded our national debt to an impossible eighteen trillion dollars.
He is the sage of the middle class. Except that he has lowered the living standards of the middle class while he himself lives like a millionaire.
Imagine his bragging about Obamacare. He and Gruber openly admitted that they lied about not losing our doctors and health plans. That makes Nixon look like an honest saint.
The creation of a new system does not mean that it is workable. It is new. Remember the “change” poster during his election. I long for the past and stability. Change is for people without character and without respect for tradition. Change is for transsexuals. It’s for the utopian naive and lying politicians.
Having emasculated the greatest American military in the world, Obama brags about his effete foreign policy. You’d think that he was kidding, but his monolithic intellect doesn't understand the ironies and nuances of humor.
His bragging is embarrassing when you look at his failures in Russia, Ukraine, and China. A cowardly Emperor Nero, he fiddles with red lines and empty threats while the Middle East burns.
He pretends that he ended the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan by sticking his ostrich head in a hole and making speeches out of a sandy megaphone. ISIS is the result of his ostrich politics. Every crucified child, raped woman, and beheaded man can be blamed obliquely on Obama. But he just keeps rattling along like he is the holy dice roller of peace at the craps table.
When terrorism is at a peak, he announces that he has contained it and that he decimated al-Qaeda.
In a moment of insane revisionism, he says that because of him “the United States is the most respected country on Earth.” Other really powerful leaders thumb their noses at him and laugh. If I met him on a schoolyard playground as a kid, I would have rubbed sand in his face.
Obama rails against income inequality while he encourages the divide between the rich and the poor. He accentuates the divide between the left and the right by his hyper-partisan teleprompter rhetoric. His executive orders are totalitarian usurpations of congressional negotiation.
He is pushing for a counterproductive nuclear deal with Iran in order to announce that he is a peacemaker. The opportunities for Iran’s double-crossing us are rife, and if this deal goes through, he will be celebrating himself while the destruction of the world is at hand. He likes the glamour of a nuclear agreement, but he doesn't understand or care about the results.
Asked how he wants the world to remember him, Obama takes a modest approach, replying, "Fondly, I hope."
Tell that to the starving, the poor, the terrorized, the future dead because of his Iranian nuclear negotiations.
Tell that to the children who are brought up by same-sex parents and have to undergo embarrassment at school.
Tell that to the Cuban poor who will continue their miserable standards of living while the politicians make fortunes off U.S. investors and ride around in limos as if they were part of Batista’s rule.
Tell that to the millions of Americans who can’t keep their old health plans and doctors.
He wants to be remembered fondly? For what? As his record matures, he will be remembered as the electoral folly of utopian Democrat voters.
