Could President Obama become one of this nation’s worst one-term presidents of all time? The historic drubbing his party took this month sure could leave some to that conclusion. His naive stimulus efforts, chasing those mythical federal ‘shovel ready’ jobs, have proven once and for all the impotence of Keynesian theory. The fact more people are being waved out of Obamacare than being covered is another sign of how this president has been a rolling disaster – all hat and no cattle.
The results he has produced in the Middle East are just one more enormous sign pointing in the same bleak direction:
Instead of becoming a heady triumph of his diplomatic skill and special insight, Obama’s peace process is viewed almost universally in Israel as a mistake-riddled fantasy.
Liberalism is a fantasy. An intellectually lazy fantasy about saving the planet every other day because it is all so obvious even a liberal can do it! Fixing the economy, winning the wars on terrorism, fixing the Middle East, providing cheap and available health care for all! All so simple, to the simple minds on the left.
All products of a liberal education system. Anyone else detecting a pattern here?
Update: Even more harsh reality:
Many senior Israeli leaders have concluded that Hillary Clinton and John McCain were right about Obama’s naivete and inexperience.
“The naïve liberals who are at the heart of the administration really believe in all the misconceptions the Palestinians and all their friends all over the world are trying to place,” said Yossi Kuperwasser, a former high-ranking military intelligence officer who is now deputy director general of the Ministry of Strategic Affairs.
One has to note The Politico is not a right wing news outlet by any stretch of the imagination.
