Naivete? Try arrogance.

Reader comment on item: Obama and Israel, Into the Abyss

Submitted by Matt (United States), Jul 24, 2009 at 11:55

It's not naiveté that's Obama's problem. It's his sinister arrogance in everything he does.

1) The health care bill – as if government could provide better care – making "end of life" decisions with no political motivation

2) Cap&Trade – as if! I guess it make sense to raise taxes on energy

3) His exacerbation of racism in the recent incident in Boston (stoking political fires before knowing the facts of the incident)

4) His exacerbation of class envy, seducing his supporters to become more dependent on the government.

Especially on point 3….it's his character. Don't expect he knows the issues, or listens to his advisors. He's dangerous. His association with pop-culture/sexy political issues (cloning, gay marriage, abortion on demand at any stage, global warming) seduces support as well (cheerled by the media); in fact, it got him elected.

Remember, he has NO executive experience.
