Obama is more insidious than it first appears

Reader comment on item: Believe Khamene'i and Assad? Not Me

Surfacely it appears that Obama is a naive little boy who is way in over his head. Not so. His presidential aspirations, from the bery beginning, entailed two complementary prongs with a view towards radically transforming the USA according to a certain model of leftist "idealism." Domestically the goal was to transform the American economy into the Socialist model which permeates West European Democracies. With regard to Foreign Policy the goal, from the very beginning, was to weaken our military posture. On the domestic front Obama commits to the half-baked "Affordable Care Act."

It will, of course, fall flat on its face; and that will work towards the true Obama agendum: a universal single-payer Health-Care system predicated on the Western European Model. With respect to Foreign/Military Policy it was already clear very early in his Presidency. I refer to the unilateral scrapping of the Missile Defense Initiative which was to be deployed in Eastern Europe. Putin -- who was the power even when Putin was, technically, not the "top-dog" in Russia -- took measure of our President. But Obama was more than just a weak President.

On the contrary, doing such was the first major step towards weakening America militarily. Now, having secured a second term, Obama has racheted up the plan. Again, surfacely, Obama looks like a fool and a coward. But that's a small price for Obama to pay insofar as the weakening of Amerca was the whole point to begin with. But there's an even darker side to this whole tragedy which is being played out by this narcissist. Have you noted that Obama bypasses Congress more and more precisely on matters which, by law, require Congressional approval?

This is the clasical modus vivendi of Tyrants. Start off lightly and then ratchet-up the process. In the fortcoming months Obama will, by caveat (and with the passsive acquiencence of the American People), exponentially bypass Congress as this Tyrant amasses unchallengable power. Don't count on a graceful exit from the Presdency on January 20th of 2017. Long before that this narcissist will have become our Tyrant-in-Chief. Freedom isn't Free.
