The next U.S. president will face a tough task undoing what Barack Obama has done in two terms, radio talk show host Mark Levin said.
"The next president of the United States is going to have a hell of job not just rebuilding the economy, but rebuilding the United States military," Levin said Wednesday on Fox News Channel's "Hannity."
Obama said in speeches this week he is pulling troops out of Afghanistan and that America should show restraint when considering future military action.
"We're watching a man who's degrading the United States military from the recruits all the way to the vets," Levin said. Russia and China are listening to Obama's speeches, he said, and their takeaway is that Obama is unilaterally disarming the United States.
Obama also has taken to touting "American exceptionalism" after facing criticism for saying it was no different that British or Greek "exceptionalism," according to The Washington Post.
Levin is unimpressed, saying that the president detests free-market capitalism and attacks individual liberty and success.
"Somebody who wants to fundamentally transform America doesn't believe America is an exceptional place at all," Levin said.
Obama also cares little for solving the Veterans Administration scandal that has left scores of sick veterans on long "secret" waiting lists to see doctors, Levin said.
"If we were talking about food stamps he'd move heaven and earth to fund the food stamp program and make sure everybody got their food stamps," he said. "The veterans are not a top priority."
Obama cares more about building "monuments" to government than actually governing, he said. The president, Levin said, just wants to be remembered for Obamacare, amnesty and other projects.
"We got a combination here that is really troublesome for the country: a radical ideologue who's a complete incompetent," he said.
Levin didn't have much better words for establishment Republicans, who he said have done little to fight Obama. He suggested they be swept out of office.
"Thank them for their service and move them along," he said.
