Obama's Agenda

Reader comment on item: Decoding the Obama Doctrine

Dr. Pipes

, I did like your astute article "Decoding the Obama Doctrine". But, I think you are being entirely too "nice". For example, "Count the mistakes:" opens paragraph 2. Do you honestly think Libya was a mistake? Perhaps Benghazi was also a mistake? In my view, he is doing exactly what he has set out to do. He announced his intentions in 2008 is carrying through with some serious "Alinsky" tactics: Obama is pure Alinsky — "Confuse the enemy" ( that is us), lie, ridicule, divide. Because our goals are diametrically opposed to his, we think he is "making mistakes" or is not suited for the job. Sometimes the press calls him "incompetent", "lazy," "clueless," "detached" etc.

But, think about it. He has managed to overturn America in seven short years: he has more than doubled a crippling debt load, he has rendered the Congress null and void by manufacturing division and internal strife; welcomed Islamists into the top tiers of government; created a socialist medical care system; invited droves of terrorists, drug dealers and other illegal aliens to overrun our southern borders to collect welfare and make mischief; crippled the nation with regulations; virtually eliminated cheap energy (coal) and turned a democracy of sorts into a one-man "phone and pen" tyranny. These are not the signs of an "incompetent" or "weak" leader but rather strengths of one who would have you believe he is. A very clever subterfuge..worthy of the Soviets. In my view, he is a master of 'disinformation."

It is the only thesis that makes sense. We just don't, won't or can't grasp how the enemy of our nation could actually be our own president. Obama is (part of) a fifth column, and doing a great job at what he set out to do ! It is we that don't get it.
