Obama's Ambition

After years of trying to figure out who Barack Obama is, I think I have found the solution.  I've read countless stories of various theories which describe him as (1) a communist, (2) a Muslim, (3) an anarchist,  (4) a New World Order proponent, (5) a narcissist, or even (6) an anti-christ.

Though after watching his behavior the last few years and reading all I could on his background, I believe that the motivation behind Barack Obama is that he has no ambition, and what drives him is a life of leisure with wealth and no responsibility.

Rather than a lifetime of achievements and years of toil at anything, the evidence points to a person who enjoys all the fruits given him.  Some have reported that he doesn't really like being president.  According to Investors Business Daily, he skips over half the daily intel meetings, he has more time on the golf course than attending economy meetings, and we also know he takes more vacations than any previous president has taken.  During the most recent crisis, he spent his time in Las Vegas, on talk shows, and rubbing elbows with celebrities.

In the study of successful people, they all have in common years of hard work, and tens of thousands of hours of practice and study, all beginning at a young age.  What did Obama do during his youth?  He smoked dope and complained that he didn't get more playing time during his basketball games.

Regardless of how he was able to be accepted to all the schools he attended, what did he do while in school?  He hung out with friends and accepted a vacation to Pakistan.  At Columbia he was so uninvolved that no one remembers him.  At Harvard he was appointed to president of the law review, where he never wrote anything.  For this achievement he was given a large book advance which he spent on a long vacation to come back with nothing.  Eventually he wrote a book, though the analysis of Jack Cashill indicates that he didn't actually author it.  Bill Ayers is quoted as saying he wrote it.

After graduation, he worked a little with no real achievement as a political activist.  As a lawyer, he has no records and only memories of others as having his feet up on his desk all the time.  He won his first couple of elections when his opponents dropped out.  While in office he had the famous record of voting present.  As a U.S. senator he wrote no bills, nor did he introduce any significant legislation.  He spent his final two years campaigning for president.  Up until this point, his greatest accomplishment was giving a speech at the Democratic Convention. 

As a president, he signed bills others wrote.  He has been on date nights to NYC, golfing at Martha's Vineyard, and vacations to Europe and Hawaii.  He shuns meetings with other world leaders, while his biggest summit was settling the differences between a policeman and a college professor. 

From all the times I have seen him speak off the cuff, I speculate that Obama really doesn't know much because he doesn't put in the homework to learn.  His 2008 campaign speeches about reforming health care are elementary; his fix for the energy crisis -- namely, that everyone add air to his or her tires -- borders on stupidity.  He quickly weighs in on the Cambridge police or the Trayvon Martin case, because these are issues on the TV news.  He changes his mind on important social issues not by reading legal reviews, but rather by watching cheap TV shows.  Yet he seems so uninformed about history and world events.

Of course, 57 states, breathalyzers, Navy corpse-men, the Austrian language, and bowing to foreign heads of states are all famous gaffes; they reveal a pattern -- Obama doesn't care to know or study.  He smugly quipped that he already knew the difference between a Shiite and Sunni before he was assigned to his committee in the Senate.  It as if he was saying, "I'm so smart already that I don't need to learn anything."

Granted, he is a millionaire, though mostly from royalties from a book he did not write.  He received a sweetheart real estate deal from someone who would later be a convicted felon.  Lately, World Net Daily is reporting that Obama is shopping for a mansion that someone else will buy for him in Hawaii. 

For all he is credited or blamed for, future history most likely will reveal that Obama was just a puppet for others.  This is his ambition: live like a king, and never work.
