Obama is A Miracle of Failure
« on: July 13, 2014, 08:25:48 AM »
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."

Neither poetry nor prose will ever make me detest Obama more.

Nearly every word he speaks is an assault upon truth and an affront to common decency.

But what makes him insufferable above all else is his Everest-peaked arrogance.

That a man of low ability, incomprehension and incapacity for self-reflection leads America at a time of great peril ought to frighten even those predisposed to support him.

Yet on he goes, looking down upon all like Zeus, while fiddling like Nero: a Greek tragedy, inviting a Roman decline.
Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.

As always Andy, you said it in the best possible way.

I would give up much, to be wrong.

But even the wise sometimes mistake evil for folly.

They have also been known to mistake evil for good.

I think you do not understand him at all!

I detest him for all of the reasons you mention and more!

I believe he comprehends very well and is doing EXACTLY what he set out to do which is destroy the USA as it previously existed! He is anything but a failure at that!

Bigun:

I never said or implied that what the Little Dictator is doing is unintentional.

What you have to understand about Obama is that he is not some Machiavellian genius with a Grand Master Plan to destroy America.

He's just not that smart. Many around him, are. And they are using him as a means to their ends.

Obama is impelled not by a profound evil vision, but by pedestrian envy, resentment and a false sense of entitlement.

Even in its present state, America is filled with people who are smarter, harder-working and more productive than he could ever hope to be, and he fears the simple virtues of such men and women, because their ordinary goodness cruelly reveals him as the petulant, crass little man-child he is. 

Obama is not like Bill Clinton, for example: a clever master of the low arts of popularity, but is instead adept at creating nonexistent terrors against which he employs an equally false bravado.

Thus his entire purpose is not to build or create, for he cannot, but instead to demean and level the world to the low angle of his vision, all the while envisioning himself as a Prince towering over a people he secretly fears and resents.

Perhaps we are talking past each other a bit. (I don't think we disagree at all in fact). Bill Clinton actually cared what other people thought of him! This guy does not!

Well, that's right. Obama doesn't care what others think of him. What's important is why he doesn't care, and it is the same reason why the man appears to have no real friends.  Obama is a malignant narcissist who views people as objects, adornments, utilities or obstacles.

"Malignant narcissist"............ I've never read two words together that more accurately describe Obama.
