Obama Won’t Run...His Work Is Done
November 22, 2010
The drivel the media are blathering about Obama’s 2012 race for reelection is
absolute baloney! All those talking heads and print [so-called] journalists
should be ashamed of themselves for prattling on about this unserious subject
while studiously avoiding the urgent issues that threaten the very life of our
These are issues that a maniacal Nancy Pelosi, as House
Minority Leader in the lame-duck session, is intent on cramming down the
already-gagging throats of American voters who loathe her fetish with Marxism so
much that on November 2 they decisively returned the House she had appropriated
back to We the People. As columnist Ralph R. Reiland writes, it was "...the
greatest defeat for a newly elected president in a midterm since...1922."
Make no mistake about it, when the Obama-Pelosi-Reid-orchestrated disasters
listed below take place, this triumvirate will applaud them, as any disaster
that befalls our country fits neatly into their vision of Big Bad America. Yes,
the very same America that brought them to the pinnacle of prominence, wealth,
and power is the country they’re working overtime to destroy.
Here is just a sampling of what’s in store:
▪ A second Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac implosion, this one immeasurably worse than
the last in terms of human suffering and billions lost.
Galloping inflation and
hyperinflation that will inevitably result from the Fed’s rash rush to print
what amounts to $600-billion-dollars worth of essentially worthless Monopoly
Acts that cede control of agriculture to the international
community and give control over our waterways and land to the federal government,
both eerily reminiscent of Communist Russia and China.
Intention to reduce the number of our nuclear weapons to zero,
the goal of which is to make the strongest nation on earth both weak and
▪ Continuing to undermine our military by enacting plans,
verbalized by Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, to
cut back military pay and reduce the cost of military health
Bringing a stealth Amnesty DREAM Act
to grant young illegal aliens citizenship, as well as intensifying the attack on
Arizona for following established federal law in going after illegal – and often
drug-trafficking and murderous – aliens.
▪ Continuing to bully our reliable Middle East ally Israel
and, worse, as Carolyn Glick points out,
supplying her enemies with the means to destroy the Jewish state.
According to the Congressional Research Service, the Palestinian Authority –
under the de facto control of Hamas terrorists – is the largest recipient of
foreign assistance in the world, having received $1.2 billion in 2009 and due to
receive $1.8 billion by the end of this year.
Actively encouraging the
legal, political and military path to Islamic law – Sharia – in the United
States, which Peter Wallsten and Sudeep Reddy of the Wall St. Journal call "the
threat of our time."
Sharia law affects every
aspect of human behavior, from diet to worship, and includes the
stoning deaths of female rape victims for marital infidelity,
honor killings, genital mutilation, et al. (Read
the entire riveting article by Nonie Darwish).
▪ Continuing the Transportation Security Administration’s (TSA)
egregiously-intrusive body-search-and-x-ray policy to insure a drastic reduction
in passengers and the ultimate destruction of the airline industry, the better
to nationalize yet another market-driven industry.
Placing in serious jeopardy the
future of offshore drilling, further damaging the Gulf’s economy, and
threatening the jobs of more than 100,000 workers.
Enacting S-510, the Food Safety Modernization Act,
which would effectively grant the U.S. government authority over the public's
right to grow, trade and transport foods and arrest and imprison people who so
much as plant tomatoes in their backyards!
▪ And don’t count out an amendment to our Constitution about
what author Paul Sperry calls
"Obama's Stealth Reparations."
Sperry quotes Obama as saying that more needs to be done to "cleanse America of
its original sin."
According to TheDailyCaller.com, to accomplish this draconian
agenda, John Podesta, head of the Center for American Progress – which is funded
by George Soros – issued a
in which he
suggested to the "president" that he use federal agencies and executive
branch power to circumvent Congressional approval, as well as rulemaking, and
even the armed forces "to accomplish important change,” and that such means
"should not be underestimated.”
The Armed Forces? Is Podesta mistaking America for Nazi Germany? This is nothing
less than horrifying, but, I must add, vintage Leftism!
In other words: "Damn the torpedoes (in this case, the Congress) – full speed
ahead.” The hell with the November 2nd vote, the will of the people,
the U.S. Constitution, and the law! They’ve meant nothing for the past two
years...and to the Obama regime, they still mean nothing!
After the midterm shellacking and a decidedly
less-than-successful Asian tour, Obama has been featured in tabloid headlines
around the world, all saying that he’s having a "nervous breakdown.” Even Sean
Hannity said on his radio show that, "The feeling among some people in the White
House is that this president is unhinged, that he's detached, that he's losing
it. He's obsessed with critics, very specifically obsessed with Fox News. He
can't stand Biden, he hates the Clintons, and the Clintons hate him. If the
president is brought bad news on the economy, he has a meltdown every time he
hears it. And this is what people – and I'm telling you my sources are reliable
– are telling me.”
I don’t buy it. Many people,
including me, have written about Obama’s pathological narcissism, his out-sized
self-regard, and an insecurity that impels him to use a teleprompter
to speak to a kindergarten class! And now we see that he is psychologically
unable to acknowledge any accountability for the massive midterm losses.
But this kind of loss makes people like Obama
angry, which will fuel and energize his lame-duck efforts.
While the Obama-Pelosi-Reid destruction is
taking place, the perpetrators will be exulting. Although they tout "equality”
for the masses, meaning widespread mediocrity, they – like the communist
oligarchs they admire – never tire of indulging in crass materialism, non-stop
partying, and decadent excesses.
All of which brings me to the conviction that
Obama will never run for a second term, for the following reasons:
1) He doesn’t like the job. Above all, he
doesn’t like the all-important decision-making part of his job, just as his
serial "Present” votes as a state legislator and U.S. Senator demonstrated a
distaste for or inability to make decisions, with the notable exception of his
full support for late-term abortions. His wishy-washy indecisiveness in the
White House can be seen in the endless months it took him to decide on an Iraq
and Afghanistan strategy and in his failure to take any significant action at
all regarding the BP oil spill that put thousands out of work and ruined entire
Gulf Coast industries.
2) He’s not very good at the job. While wielding
immense power from a Democrat-controlled House, Senate and White House, as well
as over-40 czars unaccountable to Congress or the American people, Obama has
actualized very few of his initiatives, and monstrosities like Obamacare were
successful only through the time-honored Soviet tactics of threats, bribes and
intimidation. In foreign affairs, the man who said he’d "restore respect” around
the world saw his proposals rejected and repudiated by 19 world leaders at the
G-20 this month; the Middle East "peace” fiasco is in a hopeless boondoggle; our
traditional allies seem neither to trust nor respect Obama; and our enemies,
sensing a weak man at America’s helm, have become brazen in their
3) His work is done. As anyone with eyes and ears
instinctively knows, Obama is a plant, an unsavory amalgam of a Trojan Horse and
a Manchurian Candidate, the former ferreting a destroy-America agenda into our
body politic, and the latter robotically delivering dulcet-toned platitudes and
untruths to a public that, thank God, is no longer buying his snake-oil.
Looking back over Obama’s nearly two years in office, it should be obvious to
everyone that as things got worse and worse – the tanking economy, escalating
unemployment rate, the BP oil spill disaster, even the recent slap-down at the
G-20 – he never lost the bounce in his step, his broad smile, his appetite for
golfing (or vacationing, in general), or his predilection to entertain lavishly
three or four times a week.
This is because for DNA Leftists like Obama, two things are immutably true. The
first is that if it’s bad for America, it’s intrinsically good! Remember Obama’s
strange interview with Steve Kroft of "60 Minutes,” in which Kroft was so
startled (horrified? appalled?) when Obama
inappropriately smiled and chuckled when discussing the plunging
economy, forcing Kroft to ask: "Are you punch drunk?” But Obama couldn’t help
himself... it made him happy!
The second is that everything done to further THE PLAN is good, meaning the plan
to destroy free-market capitalism, subvert the Constitution, bloat the size of
government, raise taxes, coddle terrorists, indiscriminately open America’s
borders, genuflect to the backwater tyrants at the U.N., and generally strip
America of its exceptionalism.
No, Obama won’t run in 2012, although he’ll be coy about it
for at least a year. He has no taste for compromise and his over-weaning
narcissism won’t allow him to be the head of a devolving minority party.
Besides, I think his handlers are not pleased with the thwacking he took in the
midterms, and will be looking hard for another puppet. In fact, George Soros,
Obama’s premier benefactor and perhaps even the puppet master pulling his
just told a group of Progressives: "We
have just lost this Election, we need to draw a line. And if this president
can't do what we need, it is time to start looking somewhere else."
Instead of running, Obama will become a man of the world, traveling widely (no
doubt to his favorite dictatorships), maybe allowing a few ghost-written books
to bear his name, accepting the multi-millions offered him for speaking
engagements, and working on his golf swing for the next 50 years.
Now wouldn’t that be
fantastic for America!
