It is tempting, when reading the morning headlines, to think “Isn’t it a nasty coincidence that all this dislocation in the world happened during Barack Obama’s unusually weak presidency? Couldn’t the Arab Spring have taken place while Bush was president? And it’s just too bad that the Euro collapsed on his watch?” And on and on, with every bad headline, one thinks, “If only this particular bit of bad news had happened under a stronger president, one who could have handled it better.”
That, of course, is all illogical thinking. Not just because it’s wishful, but because it’s bass ackward. It’s not a coincidence that these things happened on Obama’s watch. Instead, they things happened because of Obama’s watch.
Obama made clear from Day One that he is favorably inclined towards the bad actors of the world. This was all the encouragement the Muslim Brotherhood, the Taliban, Al Qaeda, Iran, Syria, and the Palestinians — all of whom are responsible for major dislocations overseas — needed to burst forth.
Obama made it clear from Day One that he’s hostile to capital. That kept the markets deeply depressed and accelerated what I admit was probably inevitable, which is the Euro’s collapse.
Obama made it clear from Day One that he dislikes white America, giving carte blanche to the race hustlers who have set race relationships in the nation back by thirty or forty years. We’re not in the 50s, but we’re definitely in the 60s, and that despite the fact that, looked at objectively, ordinary Americans have proven themselves to be remarkably color blind in 21st century America.
Obama is not the hapless victim of a chaotic world. He is the reason we have a chaotic world.
By the way, I’m not trying to saying that Obama is some Machiavellian operator, a Dr. Evil, who caused each of the events that shake our world. I’m merely saying that, given his hostilities, his preferences, his weaknesses, and his strengths, it’s no coincidence that the years of his presidency have witnessed the collapse of American prestige in the Middle East, the collapse of the Euro, the continued weakness and despair in the American economy, an increase in racial hostility, and a race in government corruption, among other dreary headlines. He’s not the effect; he’s the cause.Email This Post To A Friend
