Usurper Barack Hussein Obama, “Leader” of the Un-Led, Is a Godsend to America’s Enemies … J. D. Longstreet

obama_hamlet A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet ****************************** Sometime ago we wrote of our “Hamlet on the Potomac.”  You know — the one in the Oval Office. If you listen closely you can hear Obama twisting himself into knots asking the wrenching question: “To lead… or NOT to lead?” (Our apologies to Bill Shakespeare!)

As America’s regal eagle, King Barack the First resembles Denmark’s overly sensitive prince, Hamlet, in so many ways. Obama never seems quite able to make up his mind. He pines away in the shadow of such great presidents a Ronald Reagan, Teddy Roosevelt, James Monroe, et al. I am so thankful to all the lackeys surrounding Obama for informing the nation that Obama is the smartest President the country has ever had, bar none!  Heck, had they not told me that, I’d never have known!  Dumb me!

The Democrats have a problem understanding that intelligence and education do not necessarily translate into the ability to lead.  In fact, some of our greatest leaders have been men and women of average intelligence. One can be a genius and yet be unable to inspire others to follow. One can be a genius and still be frightened of one’s own shadow.  One can be a genius and be frozen into indecision and inaction by any number of things, such as, fear of failure. The Democrats need to understand that Obama’s inability to make a decision, to take action, to LEAD, is not due to his “genius.”  It is a weakness. Obama is a weak leader and the world knows it.  Worse, or enemies know it and they are taking advantage of it.  Consider  Russia’s Putin in the Crimea and the Ukraine, and let us not forget Syria.  (One must wonder if Obama is “flexible” enough yet for Mr. Putin?)

Even with all those “smarts,” Obama doesn’t seem to understand the consequences of all that soul searching that his flunkies find so endearing. Nor does he seem to understand that while he “takes his time” and “considers carefully,” bodies keep piling up and circumstances that claimed those bodies (and will claim more) continue to worsen. I can’t shake the feeling that the escalating body count comes in a distant second, in priority, to Obama’s efforts to save the US Senate for the Democrats in November. Every President of the United States gets to define his own “doctrine.” My personal favorite was James Monroe’s, which came to be known, of course, as the Monroe Doctrine. It served the country well — until we began to elect “internationalist” Presidents, like Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, and Barack Hussein Obama. All three of these Presidents relied heavily upon the so-called, or as a TV commentator referred to it, “fabled,” International Community, to either solve problems around the globe or take the lead in seeking solutions to those problems.

It didn’t, and it doesn’t, work.

When Obama went to the United Nations – FIRST – to ask PERMISSION to intervene in Libya and DID NOT GO FIRST to the US Congress where lies the constitutional power to declare war, it was clear where his allegiance lies. Mr. Obama has said he considers himself a citizen of the world. (Could it be that Obama is the first citizen of the world, not a citizen of the US, to hold the office of US President?? We will learn the truth of this only after his days in office are ended.) If that is so, then he was acting within character when he ignored the US constitution and the US Congress. Seems to me these are grounds for impeachment.

Watching Obama make a decision, especially one that involves US foreign policy to any degree, IS like watching Hamlet wrestling through every line of the play. In short order, the reader, or observer of the play, wants to take the screwed-up prince and give him a swift kick in the butt to reset what passes for his mind. I’ll let you in on a little secret of mine. I don’t think Obama is all that bright. Nosiree, I don’t. See, I learned in grammar school that a fellow with an average IQ and an expansive vocabulary with the ability to speak authoritatively, and do so in public, could con folks into believing he was smarter than the average Joe.

Well, it’s not really a con — if YOU don’t PRESENT yourself as smarter that other folks. It is the nature of the human animal to seek out a well-spoken leader (Ofttimes mistakenly perceived as an “Alpha” personality) to follow. Yes, humans DO act more like sheep than I am comfortable with.

Problem is – our reluctant leader, our Shakespearean prince in Washington, DID present himself as smarter than everyone else. (At least his cohort of socialist fellow travelers did.) The risk involved when one does that is simply that … at some point … your bluff is going to be called. OBAMA’S BLUFF HAS BEEN CALLED and it turns out – between Obama and Hillary Clinton – Hillary’s testosterone levels are much higher!

Speaking of Presidential doctrines, I think Ronald Reagan’s was every bit as clear as that of Teddy Roosevelt. Put simply, Reagan’s doctrine was: You harm an American, anywhere in the world, and we will come after you. You cannot hide. It is short and sweet and to the point. The world knew that when Reagan said it … Reagan meant it!

George H. W. Bush’s doctrine was to follow the UN’s direction — and he did. Of course, we had to turn around and go right back to Iraq, to finish the job, when his son took office.

The George W. Bush Doctrine was “hit ‘em first!” It was to fight them “over there” so we didn’t have to fight them “over here.” The thing I don’t like about it was our feeble attempt at nation building. We might have been able to carry it off in the 1940’s and 1950’s with Germany and Japan, but today — we suck at it!

Bill Clinton’s Doctrine was to lob a few cruise missiles into a reputed aspirin factory, after dark, when no body was in the building, which, reports tell us, was an abandoned building, anyway. And Clinton insisted our warplanes over Serbia had to drop bombs from such a high altitude that the bomb runs were a useless waste of munitions.

Obama’s Doctrine is to first dither while the bodies pile up — and then, when all else fails, persuade someone else to do it. Then, find a way to take credit for it – if it goes well, of course. Understand: I did not want America involved in Libya, in Egypt, in Syria, or in any of the Middle Eastern countries now in flames. I am not unconvinced that the whole blow-up in the Islamic nations of the Middle East was designed as an old “draw play” worthy of my Native American ancestors, to draw a weakened America, with a decidedly weak President, into a unending, continually deepening, fray that would suck the life out of our economy and eventually collapse our government.

Talk about having the right man, in the right place, at the right time! For our Middle Eastern enemies Obama was a godsend — the same for our domestic enemies, as well. America, today, resembles a great ship caught in a storm, rudderless, and being blown onto the rocks of doom by the winds of change brought us by the Obama Regime.

Conservatives are desperately tossing sea anchors over the side hoping to slow the great ship’s eminent doom until a new captain can be elected, the rudder repaired, and a new course stirred taking the massive vessel away from the shoals of certain disaster. To affect the rescue of America we need a candidate for President who actually has a chance at winning. NONE of those expected to announce as candidates stand a snowball’s chance in Hades, in August, against the great socialist machine already switching their massive efforts from Obama to Hillary Clinton.

In my opinion, people of faith would do well to petition the deity to whom they pray to mercifully cut short our chastisement and send America a leader who will lead us in the quest to restore America’s greatness and once again illuminate the “great city set on a hill” as a beacon to all mankind.

Media Spins Obama’s Bipolar Foreign Policy Bungling Into Brilliant Strategy: Today on The Teri O’Brien Show, 9-15-13

Yesterday the Lame Stream Media was all atwitter, in full thrill up leg mode, about the brilliance of our Dear Reader’s skillful handling of the situation in Syria. As usual, their blind, fanatical embrace of the cult of the personality they created around this empty suit blinds them from what just happened; specifically, Putin outsmarted Obama again. Obama, pick up your jock. We’ll unpack it for you on today’s show.

Women are increasingly accepting the fact that when it comes to protecting themselves, firearms are the great equalizer. We are delighted to welcome Jan Morgan, Nationally Recognized 2nd Amendment Advocate/Speaker, NRA Certified Firearms Instructor, NRA Certified Range Safety Officer, State Certified Concealed Carry Instructor, and founder of Armed American Woman, (a national firearms training program for women). She is actively training NRA certified instructors at ranges across the country to teach the Armed American Woman curriculum. Jan is also an Associated Press Award winning investigative journalist/Owner/Editor, and has been a contributor on Patriot Update, The Daily Caller, and was selected as the Voice of the Conservative Vote by Texas GOP. Should be fun!

Some of the most zealous supporters of the Obamacare health care scheme were the leaders of large labor unions. Last week, their displeasure over the unintended, but very predictable, consequences of this heinous legislation erupted into public view. Now they want an exemption, making me think “what if you find out that the chef and head waiter at the restaurant don’t eat there?”

Be ahead of the curve. Tune in today 4-6 pm Central, for the rest of the story.

Syrian Chemical Weapons To Be Placed in Hands of Easter Bunny

Oh wait. It isn’t the Easter Bunny, It’s the “international community,”  which is just about as real  the Easter Bunny, or the Tooth Fairy.

Let’s be clear on what just happened. As noted yesterday in this space, Barack Obama, having painted himself into a corner, was rescued by Vladimir Putin, who has played the man-child empty suit like a fiddle. Obama’s stated objective, as much as anyone could tell what it was (and like most of you, given the many shifting stories and rationales, I have had to buy a vowel more than once to try to figure it out) to punish Bashar al-Assad for using chemical weapons and stop him from using them in the future. No one was able to explain how leaving Bashar in charge after lobbing a couple of missiles into kindergartens and hospitals would accomplish either of those goals, but the key is that Obama’s “red line” was those chemical weapons. If Assad agrees to give them to the mythical “international community,” Obama has no choice but to go along, especially since he buys into the idea that we should subordinate our national sovereignty to ridiculous United Nations, and try to convince people that he worked out a masterful solution. The reality is:

  • Obama is in retreat, and looks like a fool, grasping for the lifeline from the wily Putin, who seized this opportunity to show that when it comes to him and Obama, it’s a man v. a boy.
  • The chemical weapons will be in Russia’s control. No one has explained how it’s possible to enter a country in the middle of a civil war and secure weapons that are all over the country. It makes as much sense as Obama and Kerry claiming that they could secure these weapons with no “boots on the ground.” Now that the chemical weapons will be in Russia’s hands, will they enforce the “red line?” Will they “punish” those who used them? They believe it was the rebels, so I guess now the Russians can join Assad’s crack down on them.
  • World power shifted to Russia, and there is now more than one super power. The Bear is back! Somewhere Madeline Albright must be smiling.

Bottom line: Victory for Vlad, Humiliation for Carteresque buffoonish Obama.

Hey Obama, want to Start a War in Syria? We’ve Got a Few Questions First: The Teri O’Brien Show 9-8-13


Last week our glorious Dear Reader traveled overseas to put on a fascinating, albeit a bit frightening, display of his narcissistic personality disorder in two separate news conferences. Responding to questions about Syria, he made the bizarre claim that his credibility isn’t on the line, and that the “red line” that has been crossed is not his. By Friday, I realized that he is so delusional that he probably believes these bizarre claims, which makes it even scarier. Barack Obama has achieved what seemed impossible; that is, he’s turned the Middle East into an even bigger disaster than it was before he was able to apply the power of his magnificent charm and intelligence to the situation. Libya, Egypt and now Syria. Heckuva of job, Barry!

Speaking of narcissism, Michelle “First Klingon” Obama has decided that her “Let’s Move” initiative has created a “cultural shift.” Seriously?

The American people are burning up telephone wires expressing their extreme unwillingness to go along with this war designed to rescue Obama from the consequences of his own ineptness. This is not the time to give up. If you haven’t called your member of Congress, you need to do so tomorrow, or Tuesday. For inspiration, here’s the script that I used for my call last Friday.

As stated here, this boneheaded proposal for a Syrian misadventure is the stupidest idea in the world. Even I didn’t think that a liberal could come up with a more ridiculous foreign policy idea, even an unqualified empty suit, radical leftist/former “community organizer,” doing so for obvious political reasons. Why are Speaker John Boehner and Leader Eric Cantor supporting this madness? I have a theory, a couple actually. Do you?

It won’t be all Syria all the time on the show today, though. We’re delighted to welcome Kevin Jackson of The Black Sphere, radio host and author of Sexy Brilliance … and other Political Lies. If you haven’t heard Kevin before, you don’t want to miss this interview. This guy pulls no punches. I can’t wait to ask him about his controversial comments about feminists! And, in the face of horrifically high levels of high unemployment in the black community, what does he make of black voters unshakeable support for Barack Obama?

Be ahead of the curve. Tune in today 4-6 pm Central, for the rest of the story.

Sorry Leftists: There is No Mandate. Show Notes: The Teri O’Brien Show, 11/11/12

Thanks again to all our veterans and members of the military, past and present, and their families for their courage, sacrifice and patriotism.

Despite the chorus of leftist Obama kneepad clutchers, like the occupants of the 24/7 nuthouse at MS-NBC, and commie rag The Nation, gleefully proclaiming that last week’s election provided Barack Obama with a “mandate” for his “progressive” agenda, the truth is that a switch of a few hundred thousand votes would have produced a different result. Please don’t get me wrong. I am not trying to sugar coat what was a shellacking, nor am I trying to deny the masterful success of the Obama campaign. As we heard on the show, they understood the game and they played it fabulously. They got the opponent they wanted, and as he was bloodied during a primary, they built their “firewall” in Florida, Virginia and Ohio, then spent the spring and summer using character assassination to disqualify Mitt Romney as a cruel, greedy, plutocrat, a cross between Marie Antoinette and Gordon Geckko, only with less empathy for the “middle class.” Meanwhile, the Romney campaign not only failed to combat this caricature, but also failed to articulate a clear, compelling vision for the future of the country. That’s understandable because, as noted here, Mitt Romney is not and never has been a conservative. He could try to speak like Ronald Reagan, but unlike Reagan, he was speaking conservatism as a second language. Reagan wouldn’t have allowed Obama to get away with mouthing platitudes about the “middle class” without explaining that in Barack Obama’s vision of America as Cook County writ large, there is no middle class.  He would have gone on offense on Benghazi and on the horrific impact that Obamacare will have on our health care system. The combination of the unprecedented negativity and identity politics on steroids approach of the Obama campaign, coupled with the Romney campaign’s failure to provide an exciting alternative to voters and its inadequate “get out the vote” effort, led to a disaster for this country and for the world. That’s why he lost, NOT because of “demographics” as the geniuses on television, broadcasting from their East Coast bubble are trying to tell you. The ignorant, and agenda-driven bleating about “demographics” is leading to the inevitable demands for amnesty for 11 million illegals.

All GOP had to do was show up, especially in Ohio. They didn’t. (From our friends at Third Base Politics)

In an amazing coincidence, David Petraeus resigns after the election and only a few days before Congressional hearings on the 9/11 attack in Benghazi. Does he have a Martha Stewart problem? Is there anyone, other than the low-information children who voted for Obama, who probably think Benghazi is one of the designers that Moochelle is considering  to design her gown for the inauguration, who believes that the White House found out about this affair at 5 pm on Election Day? Seriously? Why is this affair an issue? Wasn’t it just a week or so ago that we were being told that Bill Clinton, the only elected president in the history of the U.S. ever to be impeached, and impeached for lying under oath, was the go-to guy for truth? When Bill Clinton was diddling an intern in the Oval Office, the democrats, and by that I mean elected officials and the LSM, told us that it had nothing to do with his job performance. Will Mrs. Petraeus reach out to Hillary? Who better to give her advice about a cheating husband?

America’s First Affirmative Action Assisted President Cowers Inside His Protective Bubble

The bizarre disconnect between Barack Obama and world events, as evidenced by his avoidance of any substantive meetings while in New York on Monday did not escape anyone’s attention, even that of his Lame Stream Media suckup stenographers.  On his “Daily Rundown” show Monday morning, F. Chuck Todd said that the Obama campaign is hoping that the One can slip into New York, make a couple of speeches at the U.N. and the Clinton Global Initiative, hang out with the hags at “The View,” and get out “without making any news,” as in avoid sticking his foot in his mouth. Today, on his show, F. Chuck Todd questioned Obama campaign mouthpiece/national embarrassment Stephanie Cutter about her guy’s face time phobia, even comparing it unfavorably with George W. Bush. From Mediate:

Host Chuck Todd then noted, as he’s done before, that there is quite a contrast between President Obama’s schedule now and President George W. Bush‘s from this time from years ago. Bush, he said, had met with a “slew” of foreign leaders, whereas Obama hasn’t met with any. One adviser, he shared, even said that if the President meets with one world leader, he’ll have to meet with ten others. “That’s the job sometimes,” Todd pointed out. “This doesn’t seem like a very defensible position.”

ABC’s Jake Tapper was also flummoxed by Obama’s holding himself apart from the rest of the world.

The Liberal Death Star may have provided some insight, and inadvertently exposed another area in which the One is not doing his job. That fact shouldn’t come as a surprise. He got elected to the U.S. Senate, and then spent most of his time running for president while collecting his Senate salary. Now he’s playing dress up as “president,” and neglecting an essential aspect of the job of President of the United States.

From the New York Times:

The tensions between Mr. Obama and the Gulf states, both American and Arab diplomats say, derive from an Obama character trait: he has not built many personal relationships with foreign leaders. “He’s not good with personal relationships; that’s not what interests him,” (emphasis mine) said one United States diplomat. “But in the Middle East, those relationships are essential. The lack of them deprives D.C. of the ability to influence leadership decisions.”…

Arab officials echo that sentiment, describing Mr. Obama as a cool, cerebral man who discounts the importance of personal chemistry in politics. “You can’t fix these problems by remote control,” (emphasis mine) said one Arab diplomat with long experience in Washington. “He doesn’t have friends who are world leaders. He doesn’t believe in patting anybody on the back, nicknames.

“You can’t accomplish what you want to accomplish” with such an impersonal style, the diplomat said.

What?!! Mr. Warmth is “not good with personal relationships?” How can this be?

It’s obvious to me that the reason Barack Obama avoids meetings with world leaders is that he realizes that he’s the least qualified person in nearly any room he occupies, and he’s terrified of being exposed as inadequate. We realize that that ship has sailed, and that his severe limitations should be obvious to even a casual observer, but Barry spends most of his time with sycophants. In his comfortable bubble, he knows that his “secret” is safe. He is terrified of venturing outside it.

Critics of affirmative-action have often noted that excusing people from having to meet high standards is not a kindness. The alleged “beneficiaries” know they’ve been given preferential treatment, and that fact will always make them wonder if they could have made the grade without it. In Obama’s case, the answer is an obvious “no.” I don’t think anyone should be surprised that, as one of these “lucky” affirmative action assisted people, he may have a bit of an inferiority complex.

So, let me break it down for you, Jake and F. Chuck. Barack Obama is an unqualified empty suit, and for all his obvious narcissism, at some level he realizes it. It’s one thing to dazzle vacuous celebrities like Jay-Z and Beyoncè, bleach-blonde blowup doll Elisabeth Hasselbeck, or room-temperature IQ loudmouth Joy Behar with your alleged brilliance. It’s another to enter an arena with serious people and try to go toe to toe with them. Barack Hussein Obama is not a serious person, and he knows it.
