I have listened to Republicans discussing Barack Obama’s various policy failures, and I have noticed a trend. Among Republican moderates, there is a tendency to say that Barack Obama is clueless, and that “he just doesn’t get it.” This willingness to permit him to claim “good intentions” is a farce. Genuine conservatives examine the policies of Barack Obama, and will subsequently conclude the ugly truth, and it isn’t that Obama is incompetent. Instead, they see in his action a clear and unambiguous malevolence that should not be hidden behind a facade of mere incapacity for the job. Barack Obama’s policies are designed to damage and diminish the United States, and pretending he’s merely a bumbling dolt doesn’t address the gravity of our national situation. I understand well why the RINO set does this, but it’s time for somebody to speak up in candid opposition. Among the remaining candidates, only two show any willingness to do so, and from my point of view, this disqualifies any who won’t.
Mitt Romney says “Obama is in over his head.” That’s pure nonsense. Barack Obama hasn’t issued executive orders and regulations of the sort we have seen from his administration because he’s “in over his head.” The ban on drilling had nothing to do with his intelligence or capacity to govern, just as the Keystone XL pipeline decision was not born of simple incompetence. These were carefully calculated decisions that are intended to reduce the amount of oil available to the market, with at least two goals, both designed to weaken our country and burden its people, thus wrecking their lives.
Barack Obama wasn’t acting out of incompetence when he imposed a healthcare system and attending regulations that will force Catholics to buy insurance that will include contraception coverage to which they are opposed as a matter of conscience. He wasn’t acting out of a lack of knowledge when he was handing out cash from the public trough to purveyors of the “Green jobs” scam typified by Solyndra. These were things undertaken not as a matter of his inability to “get it,” or because he was “in over his head,” but because he intended to punish people of faith and reward his slimy friends, respectively.
The President didn’t mistakenly negotiate a deal that provided for dramatic cuts of our national defense. He knew this would be the ultimate outcome, and he tasked his party in both Houses of Congress to help him make sure this would indeed happen. He wasn’t acting out of a naive indifference to our strategic defense capabilities when he agreed to provide the Russians with our missile defense secrets, and he wasn’t incapable of seeing the danger involved in fomenting the so-called “Arab Spring” that now stands on the verge of becoming and Islamic winter. He wasn’t unaware of the Green Revolution in Iran that stood in opposition to Ahmedinejad, but he did nothing to even offer those people a bit of hope until almost three years after it was all over. He wasn’t acting from a state of professional ignorance when he pulled our troops out of Iraq, because he had been told what would eventuate as a result. None of these things were done because Obama had been incompetent, but because he is too competent in damaging our country.
His willingness to give away a number of oil-rich Alaskan islands to the Russians isn’t a matter of incompetence either, and as former Senate candidate Joe Miller made clear, there’s nothing we’re getting out of this deal except a kick in the behind. It wasn’t mere lack of experience that leads him to disarm the United States of its strategic nuclear weapons. It’s not a matter of being in over his head that makes him respond to the demands of Soros while ignoring the will of the American people in his legislative agenda. It’s not his “good intentions” that are at work in any of this, because in point of fact, it cannot be demonstrated that he has any intentions but the malevolent.
Gingrich and Santorum both managed to point this out in varying ways in the debate on CNN on Wednesday night, but the problem is that Romney is still playing patty-cakes with Obama, and offers Obama the cover of “good intentions,” and “incompetence.” Barack Obama is not incompetent. The policies he’s pursued have but one over-arching goal, and it’s perfectly honest to anybody who rejects blinders in the matter: He is damaging and diminishing the United States by every method available, from defense to debt; from energy to liberty; in law and regulation. This man who occupies the office of the President is methodically deconstructing the United States, its historical prosperity and vitality, and leaving in its place shrinking, dying industries and rotting cities, along with a people nearly unable to fend for themselves.
This isn’t accidental. This isn’t because he’s hapless. Republicans should stop pretending that Obama is anything but a malevolent creature if they want my support. I cannot accept the useless oratory of Mitt Romney who will not speak of that which is obvious in the nation all around us. That sort of timid, tepid, morally rudderless and non-judgmental rhetoric does nothing to fix the problem because it hides from the eyes of the American people how awful Barack Obama’s willfully, purposefully chosen courses of action have been. I have no more patience for candidates who will not state the obvious: Barack Obama is openly harming the country, and he’s not incompetent at all. Instead, he’s damnably good at it, and any candidate who cannot say this will not get my support. It’s time for them to find the courage to speak the truth about our President, and all the awful implications of his actions.
