Comments on: Obama’s team of mentors and his legacy http://blogs.reuters.com/thinking-global/2013/01/14/obamas-team-of-mentors-and-his-legacy/ Mon, 20 May 2013 19:02:41 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Bob9999 http://blogs.reuters.com/thinking-global/2013/01/14/obamas-team-of-mentors-and-his-legacy/#comment-241 Tue, 15 Jan 2013 21:14:31 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/thinking-global/?p=196#comment-241 The fact that Obama apparently feels extremely comfortable with a bunch of middle-of-the-road white guys shows that Obama’s political enemies are full of shinola when they try to portray him as today’s Huey Newton.

But this is not about execution, it’s all about the politics of “changing America”.

Each of these guys learned their trade hiding within the herd of the Senate (one of them for only two years)–a pompous lot of Ivy League aristocratic elitists who are always protected by the fact they are only one vote out of 100. And, where “compromise” between the two parties (who really don’t compete) always involves maintaining the status quo that has resulted in the mess that were in (both fiscal and diplomatic).

More “lead from behind” will only serve to exacerbate their obvious failings. But, 50.8% said this is what they want–I hope they like what they get. It will be interesting to see how this “leadership” responds when the world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism perfects a nuclear device. Let’s see…North Korea, Pakistan, Iran…

But have little reason to occupy a defeated nation once we killed the threats to us.

The leaders of Iran and their schools will be a threat to the middle east. Their weapons will not be able to reach us before they make lots of other victims. We should see to it any nation that is kind enough to exterminate that threat for us has the means to do it soon. Before atomic bombs. All the great nations of earth owes at lest that to the rest of human kind. Going back to the 1930’s if Japan and Italy was blockaded by sea and air, when they started their push. Germany would have been alone and faced with a recent history of anti-war wars. It could only expect similar action.

His mentors, from his earlier days, were all about overthrowing an existing regime and then being in power. Notice there was no thought about good governence, just being the one with the power.

Kerry and Hagel have long careers as fools. They are political animals more concerned about “the game” than good governance or leadership. In both of their cases there are innumerable incidents of special treatment where the rules don’t apply to them.

Indeed, this is what Obama brings to the American people and the world stage. Special treatment for me and my cronies and everyone else must observe the rules of communism.

Does this make the world safer because we back away from potential conflict? Ask Mr. Chamberlin how well that worked for him.

Mr. Obama has enriched himself during his presidency and everyone believes this will continue long after his presidency. My Thurgood Marshall was nominagted to the Supreme Court because he was black. He was a terrible justice. He may have set back equality in the Supreme Court many years. Barack Obama was elected because he was black. He has been a very effective president in implementing changes to destroy the Unites States. History will look back and describe him as a terrible president.

Then we will examine those who were mis “mentors.”

However, what may be even more important is the team’s ability to deal with the unexpected. The greatest certainty of the next four years is uncertainty.

One word Benghazi…you Liberals in the media make me sick. He also promised to “fundementally transform America”. He meant it. His view? Redstribution of wealth and a weaker America to the rest of the world. Tick Tock…
