Those whom the gods would destroy…

Does Barack Obama know what he is doing? There is room for doubt. In foreign affairs he seems to be over his head. In domestic policy, he seems to be accomplishing what he wants to do…

…The military correspondent of the Times of Israel has learned a few things since he supported Obama in 2008. Obama benefited from many people who saw him as a symbol and ignored his background and opaque record.

I noted, Bush, with his love of Zion, had been a disaster, inadvertently empowering Iran. Obama, with his cool detachment, was just what we needed…

He was encouraging his sister to vote for Obama with the usual arguments made by intelligent people who believed Obama would be a good president. I never bought that argument. I knew the story of where he came from.

Then, reality began to creep in…

    The guy’s still an @ sshole and I’m glad he’s being ripped to shreds in the comments section. Wanna bet he’ll be voting for Hillary in 2016?

      He seemed pretty dense I must say.

      • andycanuck

        Frankly, like several commenters at Instapundit, I couldn’t force myself to read it all the way through.

    • I knew what Obama was from day one. What does this guy want for finally figuring it out? A cookie?

      • Norman_In_New_York

        As soon as Obama denied having heard the Rev. Wright’s sermons, I knew he was a phony.

      • In 2008, he said he would meet Iran without pre-conditions.

        I know I keep harping on about it but it would be akin to Poland saying it would let Putin in to destroy its energy sector. It’s plain mad.

        And yet the Americans voted for him twice.

        • Free phones, yo.

          • And this is yet another reason to send low-information voters over to Syria as ISIS fodder.

    Obama was indeed WAY OVER HIS DEPTH, but now Canadians are poised to vote for someone with the very same lack of preparedness and substance…Shiny Pony. He’s way over his depth too.

    • Frau Katze

      He (Shiny Pony) will be every bit as bad.

      • mobuyus

        He does have muslim brotherhood tainted obama campaign advisors.

      I was afraid of Prime Minister Dion and Prime Minister Ignatieff and Prime Minister Rae.
      I’m afraid of Prime Minister Trudeau Two, too.
      That doesn’t mean it’s inevitable.
      Nose to the grindstone won’t let that happen.
