We Need A Genuine Leader. We've Got Obama Instead
Sometimes we do things and days or years later we look back and ask ourselves, "What was I thinking?", or "why did I do that?" Often we simply cannot answer as we do not know why we acted in a certain way. This is true for everyone.
Yes, we need to be careful about casting judgment. Do not try to judge motivation, you really cannot. To do so would require something that no man has: perfect knowledge.
Yet, we can judge behavior, and in some instances not only can we judge it, principle and genuine responsibility require us to do so.
As some of us watched and listened to Wednesday's budget stunt by our President there is an obligation to respond.
It was really a low point for the office. Insulting, confrontational, acidic in contempt for those who produce wealth, grossly ignorant of how commerce and business works, larded with dangerous distortions, extremely divisive, perhaps even willfully dishonest and misleading.
That leads to a real conundrum: being forced to ask why someone is doing something. We ought to try to avoid the why and just focus on the what.
In this instance, any person of genuine conscience cannot do so.
Many stable and intelligent Americans are now convinced Mr. Obama wants everything to blow up. He will pretend to move to the center. He will pretend to care. He will pretend to give serious thought about our situation. He will play pretend by setting up commissions and blue ribbon panels to study a matter and then totally ignore the advice and counsel presented to him. Wednesday he proposed another fact finding rope-a-dope skull session with so called experts
Earth to Mr. Obama: we don't have time to do this, and even if we did, one has to suspect that you would do the same as you did with the last debt commission: ignore it completely.
Yes ultimately, it looks like he wants it all to go up in smoke, because to confront the problem would also mean to destroy the liberal worldview and wipe out the Democratic Party and its redistributive entitlement machine.
In the choice between country and party, Mr. Obama has chosen party.
There is to be found no other rational explanation. Perhaps he is just totally incompetent. That is likely true, butI cannot fathom incompetence shoveling down to his level of imbecility. No one is this stupid.
Most level headed, productive Americans cannot believe that any rational, thinking person cannot see the maelstrom that is headed our way.
Is Mr. Obama is intending to do us harm?
What can be said for certain is this: his actions, behavior, and policies will certainly lead to economic hardship, and perhaps even fiscal ruin and destruction of a nation.
