Capturing the Essentials of Failure

Reader comment on item: Obama's Diplomatic Acrobatics

Submitted by Bill Paxton (United States), Sep 12, 2013 at 14:53

Daniel Pipes has clearly captured the essentials of why Obama is a failed President and will only lead America deeper into the morass of additional failures and degradation of America as a world power. Some of us evaluated, in 2008, the potential of having a President whose background included only limited public service. One term as a State Senator and less than one term as a U.S. senator, made for such a dearth of effort as to be non-existant. Within this "experience" it was revealed that there were no bills introduced of any magnitude and none that were passed.

Moreover, it became clear, in evaluating Obama's background that he simply voted for every left-wing introduced bill and never voted with those supporting moderate or, not surprisisng, right-wing legislation. In fact, Obama was evaluated as the most liberal Senator in the Senate of 2004-2010. Now, we find that Obama is incapable of leading America during times of great concern, especially in the Middle-East. This should come as no surprise to those Americans who decided that Obama not only was successful in his first term, but deserved yet another. But a surprise it is to most of the electorate who put Obama into office not just once but twice. As has been said, "we deserve the political situation we have." We bought into the Obama mystic and now it is paying the dividends of that misplaced trust. G--d bless and save America from the misdeeds of our inadequate leaders.
