The President as Pest
By J.R. Dunn
With the SOTU behind us, what’s left for Obama in his lame duck years?
Looking at his record, it’s difficult to see any promise of accomplishment. His entire tenure has been one vast Gobi of negative achievement unparalleled in the history of this Republic. His domestic record — to mention only the highlights — consists of the Stimulus (“shovel-ready jobs”), ObamaCare, forcing tens of millions out of the workforce, decoupling the stock market from the economy as a whole, and a still stumbling recovery. His “post-racial presidency” is a sad joke, with race relations in a state of tension unseen since the late 60s. His party is in near-terminal disarray, with most of the states in the hands of the GOP and, apart from a pair of questionable female celebrity candidates, no one to take up the reins once he leaves.
As for foreign affairs, where do we commence?
And now, today we read…
President Obama is being knocked by local press for chewing gum today at the Republic Day parade in India.
“In an ungainly sight, cameras caught US President Brack Obama chewing gum during the Republic Day parade on Monday. In the picture captured by cameras and posted on Twitter by some users, Obama was spotted removing his chewing gum while PM Modi was seen trying to explain something to the US president,” reports the Times of India.
He is an embarrassment. I think this is worse than the many photos of his stupid hi-jinks on the golf course, this was a formal State function. In India, where they were ready to chop an American actors head off (well, throw him in jail actually) for kissing a Indian Actress in public.
So what’s left for him?
That has been obvious for the past several months, clearly evinced by his senseless executive orders, his annoying appointments, and his unwillingness to face up to the facts. Obama plans to be a pest
Or worse. But I think Dunn hit the right note, Obama is (fortunately or unfortunately) an incompetent. He doesn’t have the stones to really be a Dictator and I think the wiser and richer heads behind him are getting nervous and just want him off the stage. Because Dunn’s other point is apt. Obama is the Norse God of Mischief personified, he’s the second coming of Loki. Thank God that I don’t have to deal with the shame of having voted for him, I couldn’t look myself in the mirror. I wonder how those that have that on their consciences are dealing with it? We should form support groups for the poor people.
God what an embarrassment! Well, since we’re on a roll…
