One of the things I think about quite a bit is what makes someone want to run for office. Whether it be the guy running for the town council or the person running for President. I have come up with a lot of reasons, for some it is the chance to serve their community, state or country, maybe give something back, for others it is the chance for power. These would be the two main categories which I think any candidate or office holder would fit into. Except our current President that is.
With Barack Obama I think there is something else. I personally don’t think he really cares all that much about this country, at least not in the sense someone like me does. He doesn’t see the country as the greatest in the world, he doesn’t believe that our form of government is the greatest in the world, if he did, why does he try to change it every chance he gets? Make no mistake about it, Obama is a Progressive and he wants to turn this country into a Socialist state. But, I don’t think that is why he wanted to be President.
And as far as the power thing goes, I am not sure he really has all that much. The first two years of his presidency, he had a majority in both the Senate and the House, yet he really didn’t accomplish a whole lot, and now it is even worse, so it wasn’t political power he was after. He had that and failed to capitalize on it. If it is world power, he has made this country a laughing stock around the world, making enemies of our allies and believing he has made allies of our enemies. When confronted with any kind of crisis he cannot make a decision, instead adopting a “wait and see” attitude which leads to him doing nothing until it is too late.
Let’s look at Libya for example. He really hasn’t made any kind of stand, even though the Libyan rebels asked for our help. Libya is a country who has been our enemy for many years and who has attacked our soldiers in the past. He had the chance to help oust the current dictator in Libya and possibly install a democratic and friendly government, but instead has done nothing. So now what will the likely scenario be? Khadafy will more than likely fall shortly, more than likely when the rebels get help from Al-Qaida, who will then turn the Libyans against the US, saying basically, “You asked for the Americans help and they spat on you, this is why we must now kill them.” We have given Al-Qaida the perfect opportunity to strike and control another country.
So I don’t think he wanted to be president for the power. Instead, today I figured it out. Barack Obama wanted to be President just so he could say he was President. He had no experience and no idea what it would take to be president. He began his campaign for his second term the day after he was elected. He has used his office so he and Michelle can live the good life on the taxpayers’ dime, holding lavish parties, seeing all the best entertainment, eating like royalty (which they truly believe they are). Barack has no idea what a president needs to do, and while there have been others in the same situation in the past; at least they had brains enough to surround themselves with good people. Not Obama. He has surrounded himself with people like him, people with very little experience in the private sector, where real experience comes from.
Yesterday, while the world is going crazy, earthquakes and tsunamis in Japan, as well as the threat of a major nuclear catastrophe, the Libyan rebels being slaughtered by their country’s dictator, gas prices going through the roof, unemployment still rising, Barack Obama went out and played 18 holes of golf. Is this how a leader leads? It is when he has no idea of how to fix things.
I have never been a fan of President Obama, but I have also never really disrespected him either, he is the President, but I have finally lost all respect for him. All true Americans, those who truly believe in the American way and the real American dream, not the one where the government provides everything to you, need to do everything in their power to see that this man does not get reelected to another four year term. If he is, there will be no fixing what he has destroyed.
