Bluster, Appease, Ignore, Deny.
The four pillars of Obama’s policies… it seems that they are remarkably alike both for domestic or foreign consumption. Obama’s technique when confronted by a domestic issue is to bluster his way through when confronted… appease his way through or around the issue… ignore it and pretend not to know anything… or deny it altogether, it never happened.
The problem with that approach is that people watch it a few times and then they figure out that’s the only game you have, and that they are starting to think that you may not have the horsepower for the job. Something the rest of us knew a long time ago.
I keep watching one massive blunder on top of another and I’m amazed that people in the Congress who should know better aren’t being more vocal about the disaster area that is our economy. Even the densest Democrat out there instinctively feels the loom of 2010 on the horizon.
The first of the pillars works astonishingly well in dealing with those terrible bullies over in the middle east. It goes hand in hand with ‘appease’, because Obama uses that pillar more frequently than the first (bluster). The guys over there have been counting speeches too. They’ve got his entire program wired down, and they know that Obama appeasement always comes with some concession, usually to the detriment of our national interest. That and the current administration’s facility for policies detrimental to our allies, simply ignoring them entirely, and when that isn’t working deny anything to do with it and leave them to take the rap.
The astonishing part about all this is that Obama has gotten as far as he has, given that his political pantry is emptier than Mother Hubbard’s cupboard. Obama has placed this country at serious risk with his nuclear disarmament agreement with Russia… hopefully the Senate will have a whole bunch to say about this one. It’s not only a stupid idea in a world that’s got regions that are ready to go postal just about any time, but we have a world wide enemy bent on our destruction. That two-bit puppet of the Mullocracy, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, has threatened war on our country. He’s not just talking about Israel, he’s talking about us. Words have meaning, we’d better listen.
Watch for Obama to run for cover on this one also… ignore/deny….
