The Obama of Oz

Remember when Joe Biden said this?

"It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy. The world is looking. We're about to elect a brilliant 47-year-old senator president of the United States of America. Remember I said it standing here if you don't remember anything else I said. Watch, we're gonna have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy."

"I can give you at least four or five scenarios from where it might originate," Biden said to Emerald City supporters, mentioning the Middle East and Russia as possibilities. "And he's gonna need help. And the kind of help he's gonna need is, he's gonna need you - not financially to help him - we're gonna need you to use your influence, your influence within the community, to stand with him. Because it's not gonna be apparent initially, it's not gonna be apparent that we're right." [Emphasis added.]

Notice that Biden made this prediction to Obama’s “Emerald City supporters.” Uncanny, isn’t it? Barack Obama is rapidly becoming a bad caricature of the Wizard of Oz. Watch the video as we review just the last couple of days of the world’s test of Obama’s “mettle.”

The Chinese, for example, openly harassed an unarmed U.S. naval vessel last Sunday. Obama’s State Department filed a protest. (“The great Oz has spoken.”) The Chinese responded by claiming that America was breaking international law. (“Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.”)

Remember this line from the movie? “Think yourself lucky that I am giving you audience tomorrow -- instead of twenty years from now.” North Korea is so unimpressed with the Obama administration and its promises that North Korea, just this week, has threatened to declare war on ... well, just about everybody:
"Shooting our satellite for peaceful purposes will precisely mean a war," declared the Korean Central News Agency (with grammar that could only have been written by a communist).

“Do you presume to criticize the great Oz?” demands the wizard right as Toto opens the curtain on the charlatan. North Korea and China certainly do.

The residents of Emerald City may have fallen for the Wizard of Oz -- but the rest of the world is beginning to see what the scarecrow was the first to point out: “You humbug!”
