In December of 2010, Obama did something that no US president has ever done in the history of our great nation.
He turned the reins of leadership over to a former president.
The video clip below speaks volumes of Obama’s attitude towards the job as president… he simply doesn’t want to do it.
I believe this moment in December 2010 defines Obama’s presidency, by taking this moment into consideration we can see how this fully explains his “hands off” attitude towards the situation in the mideast, the budget deficit and economy along with a host of other issues affecting the world and our nation.
The reason for leaving the press conference? He was late for a party and didn’t want to make his wife mad.
The party has priority over his job.
Would you hire someone like that? If you voted for Obama, you did.
Radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh defined Obama’s presidency in two words “my turn”.
This is how Obama views his presidency, not has a tough job that requires decisive leadership but has an opportunity to play, it is his turn, he has the ‘golden ring’ and is using it for his pleasure.
He would rather enjoy the perks of being president and disregard the responsibilities that come with the job.
How many golf trips?
How many vacations?
How many Hollywood celebrity parties at the White House?
When it comes to rolling up his sleeves and making tough decisions Obama just doesn’t want to do it, he would rather have someone else take care of those things while he goes out and plays.
The video above and the quotes below testifies to this.
On March 19th Drudge put two quotes on his page to run a contrast.
MARCH 19, 2011
OBAMA: ‘Today we are part of a broad coalition. We are answering the calls of a threatened people. And we are acting in the interests of the United States and the world’…
MARCH 19, 2003
BUSH: ‘American and coalition forces are in the early stages of military operations to disarm Iraq, to free its people and to defend the world from grave danger’…
I put two very distinct differences in bold.
With Obama we are “part of…”, notice the irrelevance of American leadership?
This is a huge departure from the leadership America has enjoyed in the past.
In 1986 when Reagan bomb Libya he “notified” the U.N. of the action before it took place.
In 1991 when George H Bush removed Iraqi forces from Kuwait he used the U.N. to put together a coalition of forces with the United States leading that coalition.
In 2003 George W Bush went before the U.N. to remove Saddam Hussein from power, stated his case and the U.S. led the charge.
Now we have a situation in Libya that has been festering for quite sometime, the world is looking for leadership and the United States is no where to be found.
It seems that Obama would rather play soccer, hangout with Marxist leaders and go on a sightseeing tour in Rio letting others take the leadership role.
Others have done just that, they have stepped in to fill the leadership vacuum left by our responsibility challenged president.
French president Nicholas Sarkozy has put a coalition together with the U.N. to deal with Libya.
The United States is just along for the ride, part of the coalition.. but not leading it.
When I was in the military we had a riddle that you may have heard.
Riddle me this!
How many French men does it take to defend Paris?
Nether do the French.
Barack Hussein Obama makes the French look strong.
How long is America going to tolerate this lack of leadership?
