Obama reminds us it's all about the motive

By Dave Weinbaum

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | Sometime or another, everyone is a dolt—even presidents.

Go through the list—all 44-- and you'll have a handful of what you consider to be morons and malcontents. But with the exception of a few, Barack Hussein Obama is the top-ranked of POTUS who intentionally try to destroy their country in order to make the USA the Socialist Capital of the world.

Other anti-Constitutional Socialist presidents were League of Nations lover and ironically, white supremacist, Woodrow Wilson and new dealer, Supreme Court manipulator and dictator wannabe, FDR.

Here are some recent examples of presidential error:

  • Richard Nixon had price controls, his inexplicably stupid Watergate cover-up, followed by his enemy lists.

  • Jimmy Carter mishandled EVERYTHING, from energy to Ayatollahs to the economy. He was one lost boy in that office. Even today, most Democrats shun him.

  • Even Ronnie, my personal fav, withdrew from common sense when he failed to respond to the murder of 241 US Marines bombed to death by Hezbollah in 1983. He did nothing to retaliate, thus sending all sorts of messages to the radical Muslim murderers, unlike the one that he used to bring down the USSR .

  • Senior Bush brought to a halt the unopposed toppling of Saddam within hours of Baghdad . He bowed to UN phonies. His quitting sealed the fate of thousands of Iraqis killed for helping us, leaving Junior to deal with his mess 10 years later.

  • Clinton consistently mishandled Islamic fanatic attacks, starting with the first murderous strike on the WTC, to the Khobar Towers assault, to the bombed out Kenyan Embassy, to the Cole ambush, to the declaration of war against America , Israel , all Christians and Jews including men women and children. The latter was in the form of a Fatwah by Osama bin Laden. What MORE does a president need to know that we're at war? Instead, Clinton pandered to polls when Osama was offered up on a silver platter no less than 10 times, indicting him instead.

  • Dubya tried to buy off the libs with his excessive spending and Teddy Kennedy movie nights at the WH. Gee, how did THAT work out? Bush also called the coming sub-prime crisis early on, criticizing the Dems that originated this scam and were perpetuating it. Despite Bush's control of the bully pulpit, Repub control of Congress and special prosecutor appointment powers of the DOJ, he did little to rock the boat that came to sink the economy in late 2008, bringing in the empty suit we have as our current president.

Even President Lincoln chose his Civil War Generals poorly, changing them often before settling on Ulysses S. Grant. But nobody doubted HIS patriotism or loyalty to the United States .

Nixon and Clinton come closest to an aberration of motive. I view their abuses of power to be self-serving to cover their own arses and not an intentional overturning of the American system. Clinton does come pretty close however, with his and Hillary's failed HC ploy.

Obama's multitude of campaign lies, hidden background and his reverting back to his associations like America haters and race baiters, Wright and Farrakhan indicate his deep-seated hatred for most of America 's history. The longest affiliation of his adult life was to ACORN and unions, hardly supporters of capitalism. Need I remind Obama shoved through all of the below:

  • Un-stimulating stimulus's throwing us into unsustainable debt.

  • The largest tax increase ever in 3.5 months in a horrible economy.

  • Immigration and Obamacare battles with the states

  • Apologies to the enemies of America -a reach-out to Muslims that actually has made the Islamic world hate the USA more than it did under Bush.

  • Dissing long-time friends Britain, Israel, Poland and Czechoslovakia .

  • The appointment of self-admitted Communists and Socialists to powerful czar positions, many w/o the scrutiny of Congress or the recognition of the press.

  • Encouraging joblessness with inane economic policies similar to FDR's dragging the country through a 12 year depression and a large increase in his power.

Finally, Obama's dictate that the Ground Zero middle finger of a Mosque be built because of "freedom of religion," at a Ramadan dinner, illuminates his un-American beliefs and his tone-deafness to common sense. This taking place a mere 83 days before fall elections shows he cares not for his fellow citizens, unless they are fanatics, union leaders or sycophants.

If Obama's motives are bad, then what means will he use to accomplish what he and his dwindling hard-core backers want?

I think he's already planning to stalemate with a majority of Repubs in Congress.

But the 2012 elections could see some ostentatious shenanigans.
