A few weeks ago I wrote a post entitle “A Rudderless Ship” and received quite a bit of heat from my conservative colleagues. Their contention is that Obama is at the helm, overseeing the destruction of our nation and doing so with clear intent. I continue to respectively disagree. I don’t disagree that the nation is in decline as that fact is obvious, but what I do disagree with is that Obama is at the helm. He clearly is not. Let’s take a few examples:
– Benghazi – Obama was last spoken to and informed at 5pm the night of the raid, and was not heard from again until the next morning. His instruction was to “do what you have to do” and then he disappeared into the night.
– Obamacare – Nancy Pelosi, the Congressional Democratic leadership, the Unions and a myriad of other special interests wrote the Affordable Care Act without as much as a vague outline from the President. In fact, the bill was so piecemealed together, that we had to “pass it to find out what was in it”, and what we are finding out is not good. I highly doubt that to this day, Obama has even read the entire bill.
– Immigration – after vigorously campaigning on this issue back in 2008, and again in 2012, Obama has all but abandoned any concerted effort to get something passed. In fact Marco Rubio has done more work on immigration in the last few months than Obama has in the last 5 years.
Obama is a complete disgrace as a leader and as a President, preferring instead to demagogue and fund raise rather to actually do the heavy lifting of governing. Unfortunately, we have too many emotionally stunted low information voters in this country that confuse his style of divisive and emotional oratory with leadership. He reminds me of Peter Sellers character Chauncey in the movie Being There, and is as intelligent as well. He also proves the Rush Theorem on a daily basis. I hope that someday a leader for this country will emerge out of the dark abyss that is the Obama regime.
