In centuries past, kings and queens often became bored with the monotony of matters of court. To break up that monotony, they often have someone in the palace whose sole purpose is to make them smile and laugh. The court jester was also known as the fool or idiot. The position was not one of esteem or praise. Rather it was a lowly position and the person who held it was often despised and looked down upon by all others.
Today, America has an official court jester, fool or idiot, but unlike traditional jesters, ours is not a person of low means. Rather he is the most prominent person in all of America. Our court jester is the king himself, President Barack Obama. At least this is the way the Muslims in other lands see him.
The more Obama refuses to take strong action against Iran, the weaker he seems to them. The more Obama continues to apologize for every insult to Islam that comes out of America, the more a fool he becomes in their eyes. The more Obama continues in his naïve foreign policies, the more of an idiot he shows himself to be in front of the entire world.
After the attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya that killed U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens, Obama’s White House tried to blow it off as a spontaneous occurrence caused by the back ally video that insulted Islam. And once again, Obama plays the role of the fool and jester.
It didn’t take long after the attack for anyone with a brain to realize that the storming of the consulate was well planned and orchestrated by a group that knew exactly what they were doing. The timing of the attack, September 11 was not coincidence either. Yet Obama and his house of ineptitude seem to be the only ones unable to grasp the obvious.
Even Libyan President Mohammed el-Megarif sees the obvious. He told NPR:
“The idea that this criminal and cowardly act was a spontaneous protest that just spun out of control is completely unfounded and preposterous.”
The Romney campaign also saw the Obama excuses for what they were. In a statement released over the weekend, Ryan Williams, spokesman for the campaign said:
“The Obama Administration found itself facing serious questions about its record of leadership in the world, America’s waning influence abroad and the failure of its outreach efforts in the Middle East and North Africa.”
Since taking office in January of 2009, Obama has turned the office of President of the United States into the laughing stock of the rest of the world. If they aren’t laughing at us, they’re hating and despising us. They see Obama as a spineless fool dancing around the Oval Office with his jester’s hat and bells. How much longer can we survive with the world’s village idiot at our helm?
