Of all the things that can be laid at the doorstep of Barack Obama, as serious as some of them are, this one has the potential to cause us plenty of trouble down the road.
The world is populated with a fair number of dictators, petty and otherwise, who are watching Obama’s every move with anticipation. They are now able to openly scorn the country which has, for so long, been the hope of freedom for the world.
Whether we like it or not, our President and our Secretary of State are the faces of our nation to the world most of the time. We are reflections of them, whether we like it or not. Most of us don’t like being seen as weak, ineffectual and indecisive. But that, and worse, is how we are being viewed throughout the bad-guy world.
Barack Obama has fumbled, bumbled and genuflected his way across the middle east and most of the rest of the world, displaying his ignorance of world politics and economics for all to see. When the US appears weak and indecisive, the entire world is more unstable. The bad guys get badder and uglier, and the big bad guys get bolder and more scheming.
This is a very dangerous world and Obama is in way over his head. We are going to come to a point where the ineptitude of this president is going to put this country at grave risk.
