Now would not be the best time to be a cave or hut-dwelling proponent of Islamo-fascist terrorism. Barack Obama may be falling miserably in public opinion, but his supporters still fancy B.O. as some sort of avenging sky-god, raining death from the skies upon those weak and isolated enough to be unable to mount a response.
Don't get me wrong. You can't make a stack of dead terrorists too high to offend me. What's troubling is that Obama and his supporters believe that his drone strikes, coupled with the reported death of Osama bin-Laden, are Barry's crowning achievements and are supposed to demonstrate some sort of muscular foreign policy.
But Obama has proven himself constitutionally incapable of standing up to any world leader with an ounce of moxie. Pulling the rug out from under Mubarak or facilitating Gaddafi's demise once his weakness was demonstrated count for nothing. The Iranians have strung him along for his entire term in office and the Russians thumb their noses at him at every opportunity. The esteem in which this foreign policy neophyte is held in Russia is clearly demonstrated in this video. Not a single Russian official in the receiving line was willing to shake Obama's hand. Even after being humiliated by the Russkis, Obama remains determined to suck up to them, as his unguarded remarks to President Medvedev demonstrated.
After cozying up to Venezuela's dying Thug-in-Chief, Little Barry was mocked and belittled repeatedly by him. At least Chavez showed a trace of fear of American power under George W. Bush. He spoke of smelling sulphur after following Bush to the podium at the U.N. He'd be more likely to detect a hint of lilac following Obama. As he rapidly approaches death, I suspect those sulphurous fumes are more noticeable to the Big Headed One. Even the bootlickers in the palace media wouldn't dare suggest that America's relationship with Venezuela has improved under Barely the President.
Despite Obama's preening outreach to the Muslim world, the Middle East is in far more perilous condition than when the only American President with Muslim roots took over. The European economy looks like the bottom of a Shake & Bake bag, and their joint military contributions are weaker than circus lemonade. The European Union may soon upgrade their terror alert level from "Run" to "Hide." Meanwhile, Russia and China have grown appreciably, both economically and militarily under Barely the President's watch. These two pot-stirrers are the only thing standing between Syria's depraved Assad family and a Mussolini-like resolution. Assad, every bit as willful as he is dim-witted, has set his feet in cement and won't leave of his own volition, no matter how many of his countrymen he has to kill.
Don't look for the Punahou Punk to rush to Syria's aid anytime soon. After all, if he were to make a commitment, he might lose. Dithering Barry would rather sit on the sidelines watching innocent people die, than take a chance on a decision that might hurt his re-election chances. You don't vote "present" 129 times in the Illinois legislature because you have a spine of steel.
There was a reason, when Obama chose to vent his adolescent anger as reported in his book, that he chose to push a little girl. He's a coward. Of course, if his handlers could have figured out how to photo-shop it, we would have seen that Big Strong Barry flew into Pakistan and strangled bin Laden with his bare hands.
When you couple Obama's Slinkly-like spine with the fact that he is a horrendous judge of character, you have the perfect combination to produce a foreign policy apparatus that looks like it's being managed by Inspector Clouseau. In high school, he hung around with the pot-smokers and the Choom gang. In college, he gravitated toward black separatists, and followed the teachings he learned at the knee of Frank Marshall Davis. Upon entering the political arena, he chose allies like Van Jones, Bill Ayers, and Eric Holder. When he had to choose a pastor to help develop his spirituality, he chose Jeremiah Wright. Isn't there a pernicious pattern here?
It's no surprise that Obama's first foreign policy moves were disasters. B.O. is no better judge of the character of nations, than he has been as a judge of companions his whole life. So look for the Drone wars to ramp up and for the Russians and Iranians to try to run the table before O is replaced by someone they will have to think twice about before they continue to kick sand in our face.
