The incompetence of the radicals

By Dave Weinbaum

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | Politics is a funny business. Much emphasis is placed on symbolism. We forget to check the candidates' experience, associations and record, both spoken and written. In the case of Barack Obama, despite the effort of his cohorts and the MSM, we had enough information as to his leanings via some in the media, especially Sean Hannity. Had we focused on his experience and political back ground, many of our votes would have changed to McCain. I say this about McCain as one who believes he's a decent enough fellow, who would do a worthy job—nothing horrible. Plus, think of the entertainment value of Sarah Palin dishing from the VP slot as opposed to the boob who currently occupies it, Joe the Gaffer.

The thing about Obama is we don't know whose side he's on. McCain may not be the brightest bulb in the room, but I think we'd know he'd back America and its citizens versus our enemies.

Yeah, I know what you're thinking. "Weinbaum, you're just another right-wing guy who blames Obama if an ant passes gas in Australia ." Au Contraire.

The loudest criticism today is coming from the hard left, conservative detesters like Chris Matthews, Bill Maher, Bob Herbert and the Ragin' Cajun and Clinton toady, James Carville

Obama's once worshipped descent from Heaven has crashed into the reality of real world events. The conclusion on his performance is bipartisan. President Barack Hussein Obama is incompetent.

If you can't lead, agitate

History is replete with radical visionaries who tried to take over countries. When charged with governing same, they created suffering and deaths on a monumental basis.


  • William Ayers-Wanted to take over America in a revolution. According to Larry Grathwohl, undercover operative. When asked what he'd do with the capitalists he couldn't "reeducate," Bill said he'd have them killed. When asked how many would need to die, he blithely responded "25 million." Larry sat with about 25 other people, most of whom had graduate degrees from places like Columbia and Hahvad. Hmmm . . .who else went to Columbia and Hahvad? And who started their political career in Ayers living room? Hmmm. Hmmm. HMMM!

  • Hugo Chavez-Unsuccessful in armed revolution and jailed, Chavez was elected in 1998. He's turned the 45 year Democratic Venezuelan government into a Socialist tyranny, confiscating businesses and closing down all media who dares criticize him. His countrymen are starving in the heart of a huge oil economy. But the good news is Hugo is a twitterer.

  • Cass Sunstein-Obama's Regulatory Czar. Previously, just another twisted Hahvad law professor, Cass wants to overturn the First Amendment, grant legal status to animals and eliminate government recognition of marriage. According to Glenn Beck, the professor wants to infiltrate Tea Parties with those who would act as racist buffoons, as they're already labeled or in this case, libeled.

  • John Holdren-A pusher of sterilants in drinking water, forced abortions, and other coercive population control tactics via a global government, (sound familiar?), this psycho is Barack Obama's Science Czar. Possibly he'll be promoted to Death Panel Czar if Obamacare is left to its evil ways.

  • Rahm Emanuel-If you want the face of a political hit man who will do anything to win, but doesn't have the first clue how to govern, Rahm's your guy. Why Emanuel, a Jew, hasn't resigned yet from Obama's atrocious treatment of Israeli leader, Benjamin Netanyahu, is a tell as to the anti-Israeli schmuck Emanuel is.

  • Nancy Pelosi-"…We have to pass the bill so we can find out what's in it . . ." This is stuff you commit people to asylums with; much less let them govern over you.

  • Harry Reid-"This war ( Iraq ) is lost and the surge isn't accomplishing anything." Aside from the motivational uplift for our troops in harm's way, one can understand how bereft of facts and governing intuition Harry is.

Those who fail to shepherd the herd tend to want to barbeque it

The one thing all of the above have in common with Barack Obama is they are agitators, revolutionaries and/or ideologues. They have no experience or intuition on how to rule a republic of free souls.

On day 37 of the BP oil spill, Obama said, "Plug the damn hole!" My advice to my radio audience this morning and the readers of this column were at election time we need to PULL THE DAMN PLUG!
