Obama: Earning Contempt, at Home and Abroad

The common bond among the various elements of the failed Obama foreign policy — from reset with Putin to concessions to the Iranians — is a misreading of human nature. The so-called

Enlightened mind claims that the more rationally and deferentially one treats someone pathological, the more likely it is that he will respond and reform — or at least behave. The medieval mind, within us all, claims the opposite is more likely to be true.

    Please stop blaming president Putin. He did nothing wrong and he is a righteous man of God!

    A good essay. Obama is disrespected abroad, by his enemies and our friends, because he is seen as a stupid, bumbling sap, ever so willing to having the Western side exploited by human-rights abusing totalitarians. And he is disrespected at home by those conservatives who see him as a dimwitted sap. (The pro-Obama forces like him, since is so willing to hurt the Western side, in favour of the enemies of freedom.)

    On that note, I have come more and more to see Obama as a quisling, a quisling deliberately hurting the West, and purposely siding with the West’s enemies. There is a debate here, as to whether or not Obama is plain stupid, or if he deliberately hurts American interests given some preconceived plan. I believe now the former is true: he undertakes polices to hurt democracies, and then lies and cheats to deny his malevolence. He can’t be that stupid, the way he talks and behaves. He is doing all of this on purpose.

      Yes, Obama is stupid like a fox in a hen house.

    As David Horowitz says, he’s a traitor, a treasonous traitor.

    I’m thoroughly disgusted with Mr.Obola removing the Pledge to Defend the Union part of their Citizenship Oath. What a dick. An unwashed muzzle’em dick.

      Come on now.

      You can’t expect the Fifth Columnists President Hussein Obama brought in to pledge to defend the USA.
