Obama is perceived to be a weak President, but that hasn’t stopped him from inflicting terrible damage. His EPA is regulating America’s energy sector to deliver on his campaign pledge to make electricity prices skyrocket. His NLRB cronies are delivering regulations and rulings that are 100% pro-union. The Boeing ruling is typical. He used the oil spill in the Gulf to shut down further oil exploration across the nation. Worse, he borrowed billions to lend to Brazil to support its deep-water drilling operations.
Obamacare is a slowly unfolding catastrophe. Everything it promulgates increases healthcare costs. The exception is Medicare, which is gutted. It is already hard for Medicare recipients to get Doctors to see them because the reimbursement rates are so low. Obamacare makes this worse. I’m no fan of Medicare, but gutting a program without allowing a private sector alternative is bad.
Obama has betrayed our allies and given support to our mortal enemies across the world. His petulance in returning the British gift of a Churchill bust told us all we need to know about his mindset. He was more interested in protesting British colonialism in Kenya than celebrating the greatest war-time leader of WW2.
A bad President could instruct ATF officials to force gun-shops in Arizona to sell guns to Mexican drug cartels. It seems the idea was to demonstrate that the cartels were being armed by gun-shops and therefore the Feds would need to regulate gun sales. Would the media report such an outrage? Nope.
His Middle East policy should be re-titled “The Muslim Brotherhood Spring”. His antipathy and insults to Israel are shocking. Luckily, Israel has a strong leader and nukes. It can form new alliances. I can see India and Israel getting much cozier.
I’ve just touched on a few subjects in this post. But we are seeing how much power a Democrat president has. The MSM will never, ever, in a million years, question anything a Democrat president does.
