…from the Diplomad:
As the current Obamacare roll-out debacle shows, yet again, in Obama we have a president with the sneering arrogance found in Shelley’s Ozymandias; the aloof cluelessness of Marie Antoinette; and the interpersonal skills, leadership abilities, managerial talents, and willingness to accept responsibility of Moe Howard.
For these and many more reasons, President Obama, America’s first “mixed race” president (yawn), should have passed into history as a curiosity, a footnote alongside President Cleveland’s two non-consecutive terms, Taft’s huge custom-built bathtub, Harding’s love child, and Carter’s battle to the death with a drowning rabbit. Instead, however, this junior senator from Illinois, the man with no discernible background of achievement, has become the most destructive president in American history. The amount of damage, much of it perhaps permanent, he and “his” team have done to the economy, to individual liberty, to people’s trust in government, and to our nation’s international standing is incalculable. Disaster, fiasco, catastrophe, debacle, I give up, no thesaurus contains enough synonyms to capture the all-around horridness of this anti-American, anti-West presidential misadministration.
All I can add is, of course, RTWT- and praise the Lord my time is almost done. My children and your children will be dealing with the fallout from this misbegotten monstrosity of an administration for, probably, the rest of their lives. Too bad so many of them bought his bullshit and helped elect him. Schadenfreude would be too easy, but I love my country and my children, so what is coming pains me deeply.
The major world powers, new and old, also face a novel reality: while the lethality of their military might is greater than ever, their capacity to impose control over the politically awakened masses of the world is at a historic low. To put it bluntly: in earlier times, it was easier to control one million people than to physically kill one million people; today, it is infinitely easier to kill one million people than to control one million people.
