Recall in 2008 during the then presidential election campaigns how all the in-the-know Obama supporters in the democrat party and in the media were so eager to elevate the man, with little to no experience at even an actual job, to a would be indisputable level of “Community Organizer” that would trump anything a crazy Vietnam-vet-McCain/Alaska-hick-Palin ticket could possibly offer the country … or the WORLD!!! As we have seen in recent weeks, when Obama’s claim to supreme expertise in the specialty of ‘organizing communities’ has been called upon, he has shown himself far over-sold even in that job.
Silvio Canto, Jr. holds up the mirror for all to see…
As you may recall, much of Senator Obama’s message in 2008 was about international coalitions. He mocked President Bush for “going at it alone.” I guess that 40-something countries in Iraq was not a big enough coalition. Or, having UK, Canadian and other NATO soldiers take bullets in Afghanistan was not enough either.
Today, President Obama stands alone in the world. He can’t even get the UK in Syria. He has found some “moral support” but no one is offering airplanes or missiles.
President Obama is saying that the world drew a “red line.” However, no one seems ready to enforce it or fight for the innocent people of Syria.
President Obama is painfully learning that it was easier to build coalitions in the campaign trail than from The Oval Office.
This is the latest about the coalition that won’t coalesce:
We’ve come a long way from that summer of 2008 when Obama was treated like a rock star in Europe.
Frankly, we have a perfect storm here: We have a man who made outregously silly statements about international relations when he was a candidate and a crowd silly enough to believe it.
Silly speaker plus silly listeners equals what we are seeing today.
Oddly, the strongest ally Obama has been able to organize into his tiny “Bomb Assad/Syria” community is his old 2008 foe Sen. John McCain … with Gov. Palin allowing, “Let Allah sort it out” … Which, of course, is far far worse than bombing the hell out of Syria, or something.

Maggie, as I’m sure you know, it’s ultimately the electorate’s failure. No amount of media malfeasance should have gotten someone so blatantly unfit into the White House. It was absolutely possible to figure out the guy was an empty suit at best. Maybe it was the “white guilt” thing, but I’m not at all sure that was the determining factor. I think a frightfully large proportion of the electorate is simply degenerate, and not just politically. Obama’s performance, such as it has been, is perfectly in keeping with his background and track record (or lack thereof). He has not been a disappointment at all, only himself. It’s just that those who promoted him or took him at face value have to try to save face somehow, hence their “bewilderment” or “disillusionment.” I need not tell you how many people out there are full of shit.
By way of analogy, Fidel was not a “disappointment,” either. He didn’t “betray the revolution.” He just did what he always had in mind. He’d never worked for a living (not even at a job where he mostly voted “present”). He had no military experience. He’d never gotten elected to anything, not even student government. He had a criminal past. He was a spoiled daddy’s boy with a huge ego who felt he deserved everything and only cared about himself. He did talk a good game, BS artist and born liar that he was, and he had conveniently histrionic tendencies, which made him seem “colorful” and “striking.” It was all cheap populism and crude theatrics, but evidently neither Cubans nor foreigners were above such a con job. But he didn’t “fail.” He simply did what was in him. People can only deliver what they actually have.
Kerry is SUCH a fraud. He’s like a crude parody of the bogus “statesman.” Ugh.
For Obama (or Fidel) to have turned out well would have defied the odds BIG time. Once in a VERY great while, the highly unlikely may happen, but it’s simply not sensible to expect that. I’m reminded of William Pitt the Younger, who became Prime Minister of Great Britain at the age of 24. It was initially treated as a joke by many if not most people, but he turned out to be a great statesman. However, it wasn’t exactly a fluke. His father had also been Prime Minister, a great one, and the younger Pitt basically devoted his life to serving his country. He refused to enrich himself based on his position, which he easily could have done, and he more or less worked himself to death (he died at 46). However, that was a clearly exceptional case. In most cases, if there’s no reason to expect even an adequate performance, it’s foolish to ignore that, especially with something like the office of POTUS.
