"Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive."
- Sir Walter Scott
"You know, I actually believe my own bull****."
- Barack Hussein Obama
Obama is now fully engulfed in the second term jinx. His gun control agenda failed to move out of the Democratically-controlled Senate, his budget proposals are "useless" and his administration is bouncing from one scandal to another like a punch-drunk staggering around the ring.
And the Obama faithful have begun to take notice. Between highly visible celebrity defections from the Obama camp tweeting tirades against Obama and the NSA for spying on Americans under his watch to news reporters (up until now his most loyal constituents) grilling his press secretary over his Attorney General spying on reporters to the public at large's outrage over the IRS spying (Hmmn, I'm seeing a trend here...) on conservatives, the Obama administration has had a springtime they'd probably like to forget.
And it's only going to get worse. A crisis like this demands a leader who can lead, and if Obama has shown us one thing over the past few years, he avoids tough decisions like the plague. He outsourced the passage of Obamacare to Congress, resulting in monumental losses for his party in the next election cycle. His style with foreign relations is to "lead from behind", and during his one crowning achievement outside of the political arena, editorship of the Harvard Law Review, he was known for not putting in a sold day's work (something he apparently learned as an undergrad at Columbia).
And we wonder why he seems to have made his golf game the #1 priority of his administration, and not job creation.
The fact is, unless he is impeached and removed from office because of his involvement with one of the many, many scandals swirling around his administration, we're stuck with a leader who's a lousy CEO. Anyone who thinks he should be his own chief of staff isn't the type of person who should be running a lemonade stand, much less the greatest nation on Earth. We're stuck with Obama for 3 1/2 years. Let's hope that next time, we elect a leader and not a failed messiah.
