So as we continue to watch the train wreck that is the second term of the Obama Presidency (peace be unto him, our great progressive Messiah), even some members of the "main" stream sycophant media are beginning to wonder "Woah, he's gonna be in charge another three years? DUDE!!
And, of course, there is, as always, that pesky history thing, that even the Obamasssiah in his awesome coolness can't escape. This is a fascinating article I read in the New Republic, of all places....I mean, who knew?
I mean this is a pretty steady liberal rag supporting progressive Democrats...ooops, I repeat myself, but somehow this incisive little article slipped through:
WOW, them's practically fighten' words from a lefty journal...maybe all of a sudden they've become racist, homophobic, xenophobic misogynist Fox News watchers? OR, maybe they've figured out that the narcissistic empty suit is in the Oval Office is making such a hash of everything that it can't be ignored any more...even our so-called European allies are wondering why Mr. Cool isn't smiting Putin so they can begin their six weeks of summer vacation.
The tiresome futurism of Obama, his dogmatic views about what this ritualistically ballyhooed century will be like and what it will not be like, are only a part of what lowers his vision. The bigger problem is that the president feels inconvenienced by history. It refuses to follow his program for it. It regularly exasperates him and regularly disappoints him. It flows when he wants it to ebb and it ebbs when he wants it flow. Like Mr. Incredible, the president is flummoxed that the world won’t stay saved, or agree to be saved at all. After all, he came to save it. And so the world has only itself to blame if Obama is sick of it and going home.
Oh, but there's more...so much more:
Obama’s surprisability about history, which is why he is always (as almost everyone now recognizes) “playing catch-up,” is owed to certain sanguine and unknowledgeable expectations that he brought with him to the presidency. But the richest of the ironies about Obama’s foreign policy is this: the world that in his view wanted to be rid of American salience now longs for it. It turns out that Obama’s Iraq-based view of America’s role in the world, according to which American preeminence is bad for the world and bad for America, is not shared by societies and movements in many regions. They need, and deserve, support in their struggles....There are many places in the world where we are despised not for taking action but for not taking action. Our allies do not trust us. Our enemies do not fear us. What if American preeminence is good for the world and good for America? Let’s talk about that.WOW, looks like this guy won't be going to any Upper East Side cocktail parties anytime soon...I mean he really nails it...American weakness is simply that...weakness, not a diplomatic strategy. ANY DECENT student of history knows that to be able to influence foreign affairs, you need to be able to not only persuade, cajole, and sometimes buy, but also bomb the crap out of countries. It ain't pretty but it's the truth and REAL statesman and leaders from Thucydides to Machiavelli, Metternich to Bismarck, Caesar to Ronald Reagan...knew that. But apparently our community organizer-in-chief figured that "cool" and being the "anti-George W. Bush" was enough of a foreign policy to get his way.
Sadly, I don't think Putin, Asad, or the Iranian Supreme leader really care if MSNBCBSABCNBC would consider them racist because they mock and disrespect our country and our cool President....they just understand that tanks, planes, and missiles trump a teleprompter.
AND, if this wasn't bad enough, expect our Dear Leader to retreat into even more platitudes of "living wage", "war on women", "the sky is falling and weather changing" as foreign policy continues to flummox him for the next three years:
This buffoon from the New Yorker (enough said) had this to say:
"And that's what's frustrating to me sometimes about Obama is that the world seems to disappoint him," he continued to laughter from others on the TV set. "Republicans disappoint him, Bashar al-Assad disappoints him, Putin as well. And the fighting spirit sometimes is lacking in the performative aspects of the presidency."Oh, yea. It's a laugh a minute there chuckles....the world burns cuz Obama is disappointed that he can't just rule the world like some Chicago mob boss....ooops, that was probably too close to home...yea, being President is hard cupcake, deal with it...that's why all those poltroons voted for you twice...HOPE AND CHANGE baby, HOPE AND CHANGE...how's that working out for all you Ukrainians, Syrians, Afghans, Iraqis....
