If you research the definition of ‘feckless’ you will find “lacking initiative or strength of character; irresponsible….. Worthless, having no sense of responsibility; indifferent; lazy” Now I must ask, “Are those not appropriate in describing this presidency?” I heard someone say recently regarding Mr. Obama, “I wouldn’t call him lazy but if he were a cow he wouldn’t swish his tail to rid himself of a fly.” The synonyms listed include: useless, worthless, incompetent, inept, good-for-nothing, ne’er-do-well, slothful, indolent, and shiftless. WOW! Perfect descriptors of this administration although I will readily acknowledge that he is far from incompetent when it comes to advancing his ‘fundamentally transform’ America ideology. He is competent and dangerous on that front and that is bad for America.
Edward Klein wrote in his book, “Blood Feud” that Hillary in a boozed rant said she had spent four draining years in his administration. She went on to say, “The thing with Obama is that he can’t be bothered, and there is no hand on the tiller half the time. (Profanities omitted).” Hillary further declared that Obama has turned into a joke and ranted about his hatred for his enemies, in the various scandals, to screw him like it did Nixon. She then stated that Mr. Obama was, “incompetent and feckless.” She declared that Obama’s word is not worth bleep. Hillary I agree but what makes you think you’d do better or be better? Another story for another time I guess.
Jimmy Carter’s fundamental errors in policy and judgment hardly compare to the ‘fecklessness’ of Barack Obama, in my opinion. Carter and Obama are both ideologically disillusioned and advanced their policies based on a flawed foundation. If you begin with a wrong premise you will arrive at a wrong conclusion and that describes both their administrations. In 1977 Jimmy Carter spoke at Notre Dame University and dismissed what he identified as ‘our inordinate fear of communism’. He believed that if America demonstrated restraint and made concessions the Soviets would reciprocate. WRONG! Thus we came to the Iran hostage crisis in November 1979 because of his ill-guided views and foreign policy.
I am convinced that Mr. Obama’s indecisiveness, indifference, and outright abandonment of our friends along with his apparent deep desire to placate the Muslim world has opened the door and invited aggression throughout the world. That is evidenced in Russia’s operations in the Ukraine, the Islamic terrorist activity including the beheadings of Americans, and his trading Taliban leaders for a soldier who was apparently a deserter and a Muslim sympathizer. The world burns and Obama vacations, fund raises, and plays golf. Hillary was right he can’t be bothered.
Before his first election, Harvard University professor Joseph Nye said, “It is difficult to think of any single act that would do more to restore America’s soft power than the election of Obama to the presidency.” Amazing and now after six years it is difficult to think of a single act that has done more to damage America’s standing and power in the world than the presidency of Barack Obama. The hubris of Barack Obama and his fantasy world view is placing America in greater and graver danger each passing day. ‘Feckless’ is probably too mild a word but the only one I will use regarding this president.
I know that many feel that voting is a waste of time for they are convinced that the elections are all rigged and the outcome predetermined so why bother. I am not willing to take that fatalistic view and suggest that we fully vet each candidate, volunteer to be poll watchers, work in the precincts, and VOTE. Failure to exercise our constitutional right at the polls is to concede defeat and that I CANNOT and WILL NOT! America needs her patriots more today than possibly any time in our history. Again I sound the clarion call – REMEMBER NOVEMBER! We must utilize all tools available to us to fight this fight for freedom and the restoration of a Constitutional Republic.
God bless you and God bless America!
