"... with the whole world full of fools, there is none who thinks himself one, or even suspects it." Gracian #201
The news comes pouring in daily of Obamacare’s manifest incorrigible faults and the stream of palliative executive orders designed to rescue it. The longstanding cases of this administration’s corruption and scandals are not going away in spite of the recently launched diversionary pyrotechnics about income inequality and discrimination against women in the workplace. The federal government’s rogue departments and agencies continue recalcitrant. Systemic unemployment and welfare rolls grow to record levels while the nation’s ability to defend its interests wanes as unpayable national debt climbs toward the stars - and the list goes on.
What President Obama has done both domestically and internationally during his years in office can be only characterized as being 1) insouciant while terminally incompetent bordering on imbecility, or 2) a clever traitor who has every intention of reducing the US to second world nation-state peerage, dependent then on a strong global government to define and succor our economic and security needs. There no longer is any discernible middle ground.
Being generous by nature, I give the man the benefit of doubt, and hold him to be the former as he achieves the ends of the latter.
