Decoding the Obama Doctrine

Reader comment on item: Decoding the Obama Doctrine

Submitted by Andrew Koeppel (United States), Apr 8, 2015 at 01:13

Your article ties together many of Obama's actions and reinforces what many people are thinking. As you know, even many conservatives think Obama's people do not know what they are doing. They just can't believe these people are working against the traditional values of our nation.

We must ask how far Obama's agenda will be permitted to move forward before something must be done. Even if a conservative candidate wins the 2016 election, can we wait that long to reverse existing trends? It is a good idea to look at things from Obama's standpoint. What contingency plans does he have to keep a conservative from winning? What would conservatives do if there was an executive order to deal with a national emergency that Obama would orchestrate should the need arise?

Congress will probably never be able to review the agreement with Iran. It is just designed to give Iran more time. What should Congress do about that? More Democrats are quietly realizing that remaining loyal to Obama is placing our nation in peril. They are also afraid his policies will result in losses of more seats in Congress in 2016. If these Democrats unite with Republicans, there is the best chance that a restraint will be placed on Obama. How he reacts to that will say a great deal our nation's future.
