Obama willing to create a crisis
We now have a president who disparages the motives of anyone who disagrees with him. He uses his office not to lead, but to demonize those he perceives as his enemies. To his credit, he did not create big government in America, but when faced with the need to reduce by 3 percent (can't almost anyone cut 3 percent?), instead of searching for a sensible way to live with that, he parades his cabinet out, providing "warnings," which amount to threats that, "If we don't get what we want, we'll turn your own government against you -- we'll use our office to ensure that you feel harmed, by ensuring the cuts most immediately impact areas that will inconvenience you, the public we serve."
Our president is willing to create a crisis to get his way, and willing to bully those he perceives to be his enemies -- fellow members of his own U.S. government. He insults the intelligence of his public, and to my amazement, few in the major press call him out for doing this. Instead, our compliant major press merely repeats his threats as "news."
This president serves his own ambitions and ego. His motive is not to serve for the best interest of America. He has levered up his campaign machine post-inaugural, even though he has no new election coming up. As President Obama's second term approaches its end in 2016, watch carefully for an "emergency," which would require him to "temporarily" suspend our civil liberties, and justify his taking over our own government "for our own protection."
U.S. military actions equal insanity
Some numbers from the recent news cry out for analysis:
Thirty U.S. Special Forces soldiers killed in a copter crash in Afghanistan, after 10 years of war costing $1 trillion, with more than 1,000 civilian deaths last year.
And 45,000 American troops remaining in Iraq, whom Obama promised to have out by election year 2012. But top U.S. officials are now pressuring the Iraq government to "ask" for continued occupation, in spite of opinion polls showing that 90 percent of Iraqis want foreign troops out, after 200,000 civilian deaths.
U.S. drone aircrafts are now bombing and killing in five countries, but only one is called a war.
