So, yesterday we briefly mentioned how weak Obama is looking on the international stage. You know,
…if Obama and Holder realize just how weak their excuse of, “It’s a big organization, we cannot know all of what goes on,” really makes them look – and by extension the nation? I wonder if they are capable of doing the geopolitical calculus that would lead one to conclude that such apparent weakness is why countries like China are feeling expansionist? I wonder if they understand that China may suspect the US no longer has Japan’s back when it comes to defending Okinawa?
These people are supposed to be in control of their own organizations, after all. If they are not, if the organizations they run are so out of their control that scandal after scandal after scandal can erupt without their ever knowing what is going on, then they are weak indeed.
Either Obama and Holder appear not smart enough to know that their excuses weaken the nation, or they really are not in control of the organizations. Either way they actually weaken the nation – hugely. Either way…
…I Am Amazed…
…at how unsophisticated they apparently are. It’s not just that they cannot see the effects their excuse making is having on the international stage. It’s that the scandals themselves are so brutish as to make Watergate look like the work of genius’.
It takes an amazing combination of hubris and self-absorption to think that what amounts to political thuggery would go undetected. Hubris that they are somehow above such concerns, and self-absorption in their total inability to entertain things outside their proscribed viewpoint, like the fact that a diplomatic post might be under actual attack. Did they really think they had the press in such thrall that they would not object to the wholesale interference with the collection and dissemination of news? (Actually that is not amazing, that is shocking – the press lives on a high horse – their apparent Obama thrall is not about Obama, it’s about the high horse of his color. You would think even the proud, self-absorbed Obama was smart enough to know that double crossing that bunch would backfire.) Did they really think Americans would stand by idly while they squelched our most basic rights using the oppressive powers of the IRS?
Where are the double-blinds, the cut-outs, the misdirection, and the other craft that even organized crime, not the most educated individuals in the world, seems to be smart enough to have in place when they engage in this sort of brute force thuggery? I am amazed at how unsmart this gang really seems to be.
But most amazing is the timing, one magic year keeps creeping up as the genesis of all this scandal – 2010. Well, except for Benghazi which was about 2012. Yep, Obama got his electoral head handed to him in 2010 (largely by Tea Party types) so he turned thug to survive in 2012. All this scandal was not in service to an ideology, or some other imagined greater good. It is purely an attempt to hold onto office. Turns out Mr. “Satisfied to be a one term president” was not so satisfied after all. The press is turning on him faster than an Indianapolis race car turns left. I wonder if the leftie ideologues will be far behind?
