Barack O’Blunder never learns. If adaptation is the best indicator of intelligence, this character is dumber than dirt.
For example: just recently, he declared war on Syria and within hours retreated without firing a shot, surrendering without fighting a fight. Then he allowed the Russians to completely humiliate him on the world stage, sending messages to all our enemies and allies—-”The U.S. is a big, cowardly, ignorant pushover.” (Hagel and Kerry can take credit for this fiasco as well.)
Example: O’Blunder stands mute and impotent as terrorists slaughter people in Nairobi, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Mali. Most recently, 44 students were murdered in their sleep in Nigeria. O’Blunder tells us the war on terror is over and that Al Qaeda and related groups are on the run. The watch word at the White House appears to be: never allow evidence to interfere with the narrative; Republicans opposed to ObamaCare are terrorists; the actual terrorists are either freedom fighters, victims of discrimination, or individuals involved in workplace violence.
Example: by behaving like a spoiled child, refusing to negotiate, and insisting on his own way, O’Blunder causes a government shutdown. Then he stands back and cries and whines, blaming others. He never takes responsibility for anything, and always blames others. Pathological. No federal budget has passed during his entire term. There’s leadership for you.
Example: he pushed the idea of a sequester in the never-ending budget battle he started, allowed it to happen because he doesn’t have a clue how to work with Congress, and then tried blaming Republicans for the fallout (and even told us the sky was falling because of the sequester.) The sky is still up there.
Example: years ago, O’Blunder as a senator said that raising the debt limit was a sign of incompetence, as well as evidence of Bush being unpatriotic. Today, O’Blunder insists we raise the debt ceiling without limit, this coming from a president responsible for adding more debt than all presidents combined. Recently, he said, incredibly: “Raising the debt ceiling does not increase our debt.” Complete hypocrite.
Example: ObamaCare. At this point, everyone except O’Blunder’s inner circle hates it. Holding a gun to everyone’s head, he insists we comply with the multiplication of ‘mandates.’ A mandate, by the way, is the command of a king. O’Blunder’s attempt to take over the entire U.S. economy is blowing up in his face; but, he refuses to learn, adjust course, adapt, or even talk about alternatives. His attitude belies a deepening delusional orientation that borders on psychotic.
Example: Let’s place a call to the Terrorists in Tehran a day before we meet with Prime Minister Netanyahu! Don’t you love diplomacy articulated by professionals with a firm grasp on international realities? Iran, North Korea, Russia, Syria, and terrorists get the upper hand, develop nukes, and threaten the entire world. In the face of all this, all that O’Blunder can muster is a stupid phone call that insults our ally Israel and embarrasses everyone at home. What a complete disgrace.
Example: SEALs murdered in Afghanistan two years ago, still no answers, no investigation.
Example: Associated Press and Fox News scandals.
Example: IRS scandal.
Example: Fast & Furious criminality.
Example: Funding Al Qaeda in Syria. Funding the Muslim Brotherhood. Both acts of treason.
Example: sponsoring subversion in Egypt, causing chaos, death, and mayhem.
Example: illegal war in Libya.
Example: killing American citizens with drones, including innocent teenage boys.
Example: NSA scandal, spying on citizens.
Example: illegal executive orders to skirt the will of Congress and the People.
Example: recess appointments that violate the Constitution.
The only achievements so far by O’Blunder?
Nixon is no longer the most hated president.
Carter is no longer considered the worst president in history.
