Even with arguably the most powerful propaganda tools in history at his disposal, Barack Obama’s image is steadily eroding, all thanks to his own doing. It turns out Obama, for all his complaining about conservatives, is his own worst enemy.
Scandal after scandal, including lawbreaking that would have seen any other president impeached long ago, have marked Obama’s Administration to the point that his former allies and staunch supporters are fleeing from his shadow in hopes of keeping their careers alive.
His opponents, on the other hand, are feeling emboldened by King Putt’s self-destruction. Increasingly the gloves are coming off, and critics are no longer holding back or framing their condemnations in politic language.
Tom DeLay, former speaker of the House, said in an interview with WorldNet Daily, “In defending America against radical Islamic terrorism, Barack Obama cannot be trusted.”
DeLay said that Obama is paralyzed by his Muslim sympathies:
“Barack Obama was raised a Muslim, and he claims he is a Christian, and I can’t say for sure whether he’s a Christian or not, but he has shown over the last few years that he has great sympathies with Islam. You combine that with Obama’s political orientation that is far to the left and you get a president who hates war, hates the military, and you have a formula for military inaction when it comes to combating radical Islamic terrorists like we are seeing in ISIS.”
DeLay also hammered on a theme that many of Obama’s critics have noted: Obama’s incompetence and inability to perform the job of president:
“You add to the mix that Barack Obama is incompetent, way over his head as president, and the whole combination produces a worldview that makes Obama detached and reluctant to take the type of the military action against ISIS that would be effective. … (Obama) does not want to face the reality of the danger and threat represented to the United States by ISIS, and he does not want to admit the connections between al-Qaida and ISIS, because he refuses to understand that we are in a war against radical Islamic terrorism.”
I would disagree with DeLay on that last point. I think Obama knows full well that we are in a war, but he’s rooting for the other side. Many of the soldiers currently in ISIS are the same people who were “rebels” in Obama’s proxy army against the Syrian government and using the same equipment Obama supplied to them via a smuggling route from Libya and through Turkey.
In any case, it’s clearer day by day, even to the zombie Left, that Barack Obama was never fit to be the president, and that the situation with ISIS only underscores how he could actually be dangerous in the Oval Office.
According to retired Lt. Col. Ralph Peters, Obama’s reputation has damaged the United States’ ability to call on allies to help combat global threats such as ISIS.
Peters told talk show host Sean Hannity, “He is not going to get our allies to step up in the way George Bush did. He’s not going to get neutral states and others in the Middle East to step up. Why? Because they cannot trust Obama. He screwed over the East Europeans on missile defense to get a crappy arms deal with Putin. He bailed on our allies in Iraq. He’s run NATO all over the map in Afghanistan. He’s drawn red line after red line, never lived up to any of it. He won’t call an invasion of Ukraine an invasion. He won’t call a war, a war. He won’t call Islamist terrorists, Islamist terrorists. This president is a terrified little man in a great, big job he can’t do.”
The assessment seems accurate. Trustworthiness is one of Obama’s major weaknesses. He would throw, and has thrown, his own grandmother under the proverbial bus for a temporary political advantage.
We have to factor in Obama’s clinical narcissism. As afraid as he is to take on his Muslim allies, he’s even more terrified of looking bad. Being in the White House surrounded by sycophants keeps him insulated so that he doesn’t truly understand how much a fool he already looks. As his support continues to erode, however, it will become clearer to him.
Being a high-strung personality type and considering that he already tends to lash out at those who don’t support him, such as conservatives and Tea Partiers, there is a very real possibility that if he feels his support shrinking beyond a certain point, he could snap.
What that would entail exactly is unclear, but if it happens, it won’t be good for America.
