America goes leaderless while the community organizer fumbles and falls
When he first ran for office, the liberal Left could do nothing but praise Obama for his intellect and mental acuity. His top advisor, Sunni Muslim Valerie Jarrett had this glowing praise to heap upon him in an interview:
“I think Barack knew that he had God-given talents that were extraordinary. He knows exactly how smart he is. . . . He knows how perceptive he is. He knows what a good reader of people he is. And he knows that he has the ability — the extraordinary, uncanny ability — to take a thousand different perspectives, digest them and make sense out of them, and I think that he has never really been challenged intellectually. . . . So what I sensed in him was not just a restless spirit but somebody with such extraordinary talents that had to be really taxed in order for him to be happy. . . . He’s been bored to death his whole life. He’s just too talented to do what ordinary people do.”
Wow, from the sound of that you would think that Obama would be a combination of Einstein, Edison, and Gandhi. A strong, decisive leader effortlessly steering America through the murky waters of economic recovery, national security and maintaining our status as the leading nation of the free world. But you would be completely wrong.
As yesterday’s press conference clearly showed, Obama is so clearly out-of-touch and so unbelievably disconnected from the day-to-day events surrounding him that you wonder if he has either been lobotomized or been placed on a regimen of psychotropic medication that have rendered him a functional eunuch.
At yesterday’s press conference, when faced with the gruesome reality that Russia in all likelihood had given the order to blast Malaysia flight M17 out of the sky with a Buk ground-to-air missile, all Obama could muster was a weary ““It looks like it may be a terrible tragedy”. Then, 40 seconds later, he launched right into inane patter and scripted jokes.
‘Before I begin, obviously the world is watching reports of a downed passenger jet near the Russia-Ukraine border. And it looks like it may be a terrible tragedy. Right now we’re working to determine whether there were American citizens on board. That is our first priority.’
‘And I’ve directed my national security team to stay in close contact with the Ukrainian government. The United States will offer any assistance we can to help determine what happened and why. And as a country, our thoughts and prayers are with all the families and passengers, wherever they call home.
Obama then jarringly quickly returned to his prepared remarks. ‘I want to thank Jeremie for that introduction’ he said. ‘Give Jeremie a big round of applause.’ ‘It is great to be in the state that gave us Joe Biden. We’ve got actually some better-looking Bidens with us here today. We’ve got Beau and his wife, Hallie, are here. Give them a big round of applause. We love them.’
At that moment, Congress should have acted and immediately relieved Obama of his command of the office of president. His actions clearly show that he is either unable or unwilling to even remotely attempt to do the job he was hired to do. Yesterday’s press conference shows that there is a vacancy at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, and one that could have horrific national security implications for the United States.
At a time when intense global conflicts are breaking out all over the globe – Israel, Gaza, Russia, Ukraine, Malaysia, Syria, South Africa, Lebanon, Iran – as well as the entire southern border of the United States overwhelmed with disease-carrying illegal migrants, can we really afford 3 more years of a clueless, disconnected, out-of-touch and pusillanimous president who is leading so far from behind that he is no longer even in the race?
The immediate, short-term answer to that question will decide much of America’s fate.
