THINGS WITH THIS PRESIDENT ARE TOO ABHORRENT
Friday, ah yes Friday! Yesterday I held back more than half of my article insofar as I believed it was too long. Most of the time it is easy to hit my mark of 500 words per article; however lately lately they have been running a little bit longer (avg = 640) words per article. I just wish I had a dime (10 cents) for every whiplashing I got whilst studying journalism, creative writing, or no frills writing.
Today I am not going to lead with yesterday’s unfinished portion of the article. Rather I would much rather share with you the onslaught of rubbish that is going on in news from newspapers, the Internet, and other websites.
I have entitled this disposition “Things with this President are too abhorrent.” And it is the long drawn out misuse of executive power, the forever wanting things done –His Way – without the consultation of advisors, or anyone qualified for that matter, this poor inept man is bypassing Congress every inch of the way – why everyone asks.
It is simply that Barack Obama has never had any training in the executive function. The ability for him to communicate effectively is way over the top for this “quitter.” Planning, organizing, and time management are those matters that when articulated in a proper way gets things done. Let us have a look:
For most of us planning is like brushing our teeth. We really would not know how to start our days without this one delegation of planning. What does Obama actually plan for, if anything?
We should at least try to give him a break – why? I believe that it is simply because he was a junior senator prior to his election to the highest elected office in the world. However, we will promise you that to effectually run a corporation, a Mom & Pop Shoppe, a domestic policy and have mercy, but couple that with a foreign policy that does not exist and well, we are in a hellava mess.
Any statesman worth his salt would have made a drawdown of forces in Iraq completely contingent on solidified measures given the new plans (dare I say that) in for the newly formed Iraqi government. Now we are not callused here but allow me to make one think perfectly clear: it simply does not matter what the Iraqi or Afghani leadership wants – they wanted us originally and we paid for the move. Now one just simply does not withdraw by date. What made us different and the most respected nation on earth was the notion of not quitting. Moreover, not looking for ways (anything will do) to get out.
Just Some Quick Hitters:
It is not fair to blame Republicans or House members for not having an immigration reform bill ready for his signature. First off, the House members would have to condone the bombastic bill passed on by the most irresponsible group of senators known to this nation. If one takes the time to read that make—shift bill what they will find out is that for every civil liberty gained will and be the loss of one’s civil liberties times two.
As I have said before, the Immigration Bill from the Senate (704) is very much on due course with the same bill in 2000, 2005, 2010, 2011 which have all been defeated handily prior to this arrogant showing. What has been added is of course is mention that The National Council of LA RAZA wants the government to pay for assimilation through language training for every one of the 12 million that as you know, are being primed for a pathway to citizenship. Wrong and no!
What planning went into this bill by the senate? None, in fact, of those “Gang of Eight” bipartisan senators, are remotely close to having the same result if it went to the senate floor again. So much for non-planning.
Immigration reform, border security, and how Barack Obama is the consummate leader and team player has to wait until tomorrow and subsequent writings.
Yet for now this next news item is embarrassing to our Nation. A heavy-lidded Obama struggled to keep his head up during a one-on-one talk in an Austin cafe with a college student whose parents lost their jobs last year.
Kinsey Button, a junior at the University of Texas at Austin, huddled with the president in a booth at the Magnolia Cafe, where he ordered hot tea and she sipped coffee while discussing her parents’ plight. Button, 20, had written to Obama late last year describing her family’s troubles.
Obama has recently come under fire for his apparent lack of engagement. Columnist Peggy Noonan wrote this week that he is “given up” and is “running out the clock” on his second term.
Noonan, an author and speechwriter for President Ronald Reagan, said Obama is convinced his legacy is already in place.
“He’s waiting for history to get its act together and see his true size,” she wrote.
“It is weird to have a president who has given up,” she wrote. “So many young journalists diligently covering this White House . . . think what they’re seeing is normal. It is not. It is unprecedented and deeply strange. And, because the world is watching and calculating, unbelievably dangerous.”
