A Malignant, Failed President

I haven’t wanted to think of our president as an evil man, just a hopelessly na├»ve one too steeped in his leftist ideology that he is unable to recognize mistakes and change course when his policies turn out to be demonstrably wrong. In the wake of the Benghazi debacle I am now convinced that the man is evil to his core.

Barack Obama left four Americans to die and though he had the means to send help, help that was requested and denied three times. It may have already been too late for Ambassador Stevens and Sean Smith but Tyrone Woods and Glenn Doherty could have been saved as they fought a desperate rear-guard action that saved at least twenty more consulate personel in a battle that lasted nearly 7 hours.

Writing at Canada Free Press, Kelly O’Connell takes the same view, that Obama is evil, in a post entitled “Biopsy From a Malignant, Failed Presidency.” You should definitely read the whole thing but this section summarizes the sentiment quite well:

Third, Obama’s loss of nerve and decision to call off a military strike that could have taken out the Benghazi insurgents, and instead—just letting Americans die an agonizing, lonely death—is the most quintessential aspect of the story. This is because it reveals Barack as he truly is inside—an immoral, gutless, unfeeling, selfish, hypocritical, overly ambitious and hideously uncaring person. Obama ONLY cares about what he personally finds valuable, which obviously does not include individual Americans, or any random human beings.

  This man must be voted out of office and if not voted out, impeached. Such evil cannot be trusted with the levers of power.

The Obama Administration Is Lying About Afghanistan, The Taliban and al-Quaida – Lara Logan to Better Government Association

The Obama administration would like us to believe that the war in Afghanistan is winding down and all is well, that the Taliban and al-Quaida are mostly wiped out and ineffectual, so we can exit. CBS war correspondent Lara Logan says otherwise and she should know something about it because she was the correspondent that was gang-raped by a mob of Egyptians in Tahrir Square in Cairo last year. I haven’t watched any news programs on the alphabet soup networks ( I generally refer to CBS as See BS) in well over a decade because I don’t trust anything I hear on them, so I’ve not heard Lara Logan speak before. I’ve definitely missed something. She gets what’s at stake and says that the Obama administration is lying to us (what else is new?) on where things stand with the Taliban and al-Quaida. If anything, they’re even stronger than ever. In a keynote address in front of the Better Government Association she lays out the case.  Watch this:

Why “You Didn’t Build That” Is So Offensive

There’s a great piece over at Tigerhawk on why Obama’s (and Elizabeth Warren’s) “you didn’t build that” argument is so offensive to the business community. You should definitely read the whole thing but here is a brief excerpt that takes on the typical leftist’s straw man argument that the rich don’t want to pay “their fair share” :

Anyway, I know a great many "successful" people, and not one of them believes that "successful" people should pay less tax, either in absolute terms or as a percentage of their income, than "unsuccessful" people. Further, I am unaware of anybody important who advocates that result. When politicians on the left argue otherwise, they are dishonest. Not only have "successful" people paid an ever higher proportion of direct taxes at all levels, but they are paying a higher proportion relative to their own share of national income. In 2010, I paid 42% of my income in direct taxes -- income, FICA, Medicare, and property -- divided by adjusted gross income. That is a higher proportion than any "unsuccessful" person would pay, and it obviously does not include sales taxes, gasoline taxes, excise taxes, "fees" paid to governments so I can do something I should be allowed to do anyway, taxes on my wages paid by my employer, and corporate taxes paid by companies in which I have invested. If the taxes I pay are not a high enough proportion of my income for Warren and Obama, how high should it be? President Obama believes it should be substantially more and it will be on January 1, 2013 unless Mitt Romney wins. Personally, I do not believe I am failing to pay my "fair share" by forking over more than 42% of everything I earn to the government. If you do, then please tell me how much of my time I "should" work for the benefit of the government? We need to understand what liberals believe.
