Obama doing what he does best – Campaigning

Doing what he does best.

Dear Patriot,

An earthquake, a tsunami, a nuclear meltdown in a major ally, overthrow in Egypt, war in Libya, unrest across most of the middle east, signs of inflation, a budget battle, a looming government shutdown, and the ongoing economic crisis are just too much for President Obama.  His popularity is plunging; his responses are baffling; and even his base is turning against him. 
The administration is incredibly undisciplined with Secretary of State Clinton and Secretary of Defense Gates seeming to contradict each other on the same program, at the same time.  Everything coming from the White House screams that there is a clear lack of strong leadership, but not to worry.  Obama isn’t worried about a troubled world; Obama is ready to get back to his bread and butter—campaigning.

In an attempt to change the news cycle, Obama has officially launched his reelection campaign today. With even the most ignorant liberals beginning to see Obama’s clear lack of leadership, the Obama team had no choice but to pivot back to the only thing Barack Obama has ever done effectively—campaigning.  Decisive decisions required of leaders has never been a strong suit for Barack “voted present” Obama.  As a leader, the people see him as weak, surly, and disengaged, but boy can he deliver a teleprompted speech.  
The incredibly difficult events of the last month have exposed Obama’s priorities, and they are completely self-absorbed.  Postpone a vacation to Rio because you are about to engage a Middle East nation militarily and the world’s third largest economy is facing a nuclear catastrophe?  Don’t be ridiculous!  Double down and launch your reelection campaign as soon as you get back. 
As a member of Generation X, it is easy to pinpoint the mentality of Barack Obama.  As a student, I grew up in public schools that taught self-esteem was more important than results, and if something doesn’t feel good, don’t do it.  As a conservative, I believe that pain, hard work, and perseverance make us stronger, but liberals like Obama believe in avoiding pain at all costs.  Only when you look at it from this context can you understand the mindset of running away from the painfully difficult decisions faced by the President of the United States in order to return to the adulation of adoring crowds.
The Obama campaign machine is formidable.  A billion dollar war chest will be used to smear his eventual opponent.  His teleprompter will once again captivate the ignorant and willfully ignorant. Will the spotlight of the Presidency finally force a majority to recognize that Barack Obama is no leader, sending the Republican nominee to a Ronald Reagan landslide victory?  We’ll know on November 2, 2012.

    No one would argue that being President of the United States is an easy position to be in, but sometimes taking a cautious approach to solving a problem takes more courage than use of force. The idea that the U.S. continue the role of policing the rest of the world must stop. Obama errs on the side of caution, and he should be commended for that.

    Who said that being President was easy?
    Who says that we should police the world?

    The point of this, Mary, is that there is a hypocrisy of the Left. They tout themselves as Progressives who want to “move forward.” I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve heard the Left say that the Right wants to “keep us in the stone age.” The Left is ALL about moving quickly and… now… you are telling me that we should applaud one of the most Progressive Presidents we’ve ever had for sitting and doing nothing? Doesn’t this seem a bit… unfair… to you? Applaud him when he rams legislation through without even letting the public see it… and applaud him when he sits and does nothing.

    Now, don’t get me wrong. I want nothing more than a non-interventionalist foreign policy. We have no business in anyone’s business. However, if we look at the events… President Obama say and did nothing… and then ended up sending ground troops to Libya anyways (of course, right after he said “No Ground Troops.”). Obama is playing both sides – balking at intervention to appease the anti-war crowd… and then later acting out to appease the war hawks. A true politician.

    But really this is a bigger issue here with Obama. He balks and parries all things. This far into his presidency and I don’t think we can really successfully say who he exactly is. This is scary in my opinion. Very scary.

    So somehow when the Right doesn’t want to ram legislation through or is cautious of the outcome of a new bill… then this is bad. But when the Left wants to take their time in making a decision, then it is right. Hypocritical don’t you think?

    Wonderful news about Osama Bin Laden…. How many will be eating crow after tonight’s news. Mr. Trump perhaps?

    Mary, define “wonderful news.” Will it be wonderful news if this causes an outlash against the United States? Was it wonderful because our troops will come home? Was it wonderful because of how much money and time and lives we spent getting one man?

    Echoing DJ’s comment, “It’s all Bush’s fault”…..

"Naturally the common people don't want war; neither in Russia, nor in England, nor in America, nor in Germany. That is understood. But after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country" - Hermann Goering

"I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do this I keep on doing." - Romans 7:18-19

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." - Mark Twain
