What happens to the United States when a weak man is President
Flopping Aces ^ | 11-26-10 | DrJohn

Posted on 11/26/2010 9:49:53 AM PST by Starman417

Barack Obama has used his Presidency to do little more than weaken the United States of America and now events are spiraling out of control around both him and us. His first real focus was to go on an apology tour.

President Barack Obama has finished the second leg of his international confession tour. In less than 100 days, he has apologized on three continents for what he views as the sins of America and his predecessors.

Mr. Obama told the French (the French!) that America "has shown arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive" toward Europe. In Prague, he said America has "a moral responsibility to act" on arms control because only the U.S. had "used a nuclear weapon." In London, he said that decisions about the world financial system were no longer made by "just Roosevelt and Churchill sitting in a room with a brandy" -- as if that were a bad thing. And in Latin America, he said the U.S. had not "pursued and sustained engagement with our neighbors" because we "failed to see that our own progress is tied directly to progress throughout the Americas."

By confessing our nation's sins, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said that Mr. Obama has "changed the image of America around the world" and made the U.S. "safer and stronger." s evidence, Mr. Gibbs pointed to the absence of protesters during the Summit of the Americas this past weekend.

Stronger by confessing to our sins.

Sure.

Obama made clear he does not believe in the exceptionalism of America

Mr. Obama was asked in Europe if he believes in American exceptionalism. He said he did -- in the same way that "the Brits believe in British exceptionalism and the Greeks in Greek exceptionalism." That's another way of saying, "No."

Rove was prescient:

When a president desires personal popularity, he can lose focus on vital American interests. It's early, but with little to show for the confessions, David Axelrod of Team Obama was compelled to say this week that the president planted, cultivated and will harvest "very, very valuable" returns later. Like what?

Rove was dead on correct. Obama was more (and still is) interested in his own popularity than the welfare of his country. Now the returns are coming in.

The greatest leak of classified information in history has occurred under Barack Obama.

The Wikileaks editor should be in his grave now, along with the traitorous SOB who presented him with the information.

The church is weak, and 1 Peter 4:17 is in full effect.

The heathen/Democrats are just along for the ride.

Check out my tagline.

Any "weakness" was in We the People of the United States of America allowing a bona fide Communist to even get a whiff of the Oval Office - never mind letting him hijack it.

Shame on us and those we've trusted as Sentries of Liberty.

Well, you can see it every day now. On the golf course, in the WH kitchen, on vacation, in the air, in the air, in the air, overseas, overseas, overseas..... bowing,bowing,bowing. Submitting, submitting, submitting.

Seems pretty clear to me. How about you all?

It is already happening with Odumbo the Shitcago/DC Clown. The US needs to clean out Shitcago once and for all the liberal communist bastion needs to be cleared of every imbecile like Odumbo. It must be in the water in Illinois.

Look-up “feckless” in Webster’s latest dictionary and you’ll likely find a picture of our esteemed president smiling out at you.

Right. We touched bases on another thread. I think we're definitely in the Laodicean church age, the age in which Jesus comes to claim His own out of the world and climaxes in the Great Tribulation. Your tag line is right even though I call what we need a spiritual "awakening" of the caliber of the First and Second Great Awakenings that reset the course of the country (and world) for decades. Otherwise I think He'll be here pretty soon.

Either way, may the Lord shine brightly through us that as many as He ordains, come in before He closes the door.

The following was written at his 100 day mark:

100 DAYS OF BEING A LAUGHINGSTOCK IN PARIS

Paris, France. It is very cool to be a French intel guy. A spectacular meal at a Parisian bistro with $90 entrées and a $200 bottle of Bordeaux? No problem. I’d known this fellow since he got me out of a jam in Sudan years ago. His James Bond days are over, but still, riding a desk for the DGSE — Direction générale de la sécurité extérieure (General Directorate for External Security), France’s military intel agency - in Paris has its decided benefits.

One of them is not being infected with Obamamania. “My agency considers him a joke,” he confides. “Every day there is some fresh lunacy that we cannot believe. Mr. Bush would often make us angry. But at this man we just laugh.”

“In truth, it also makes us sad,” he continued. “French resentment towards America is strong, so being able to laugh at your country feels good. But it is such a sad and strange thing to see America - America The Great! - do something so crazy as to elect this ridiculous man.”

“There are many people in America who think he isn’t a legitimate president as he wasn’t born in the US and isn’t a natural citizen. What do you think?” I asked.

He shrugged. “I wouldn’t know. I’ve never had reason to make an inquiry.”

“There are a lot of people convinced he is a traitor who hates America and is actively determined to destroy it. Any opinion on that?”

He didn’t shrug at this. After a long slow sip of wine, he mused, “I would not go that far. Many of his actions, however, are very puzzling because they are so counter-productive regarding America’s best interests. There seems to be a consistent pattern in that direction.”

“What does Sarkozy think of him?”

“Nothing but contempt.”

After a pause he asked, “And Langley?”

“Well, if you thought the war they waged against Bush was intense, it was nothing compared to how they’re going to screw Obama. He has tried to gut them with the ‘torture memo’ release and slashing their budgets. The morale is depressed, sullen, and enraged. You know what a left-wing outfit Langley is. They thought he was their boy and they feel betrayed. All kinds of damaging stuff on him will be appearing via their media friends.”

He nodded. “And in Tel Aviv City?”

He was referring to the huge underground city complex of Langley’s underneath the US Embassy in the Israeli capital. “That’s an interesting question. You know how vast and deep the relationship is there. Langley is making every effort to overcome the total and massive distrust their Israeli colleagues have for Obama, whom they know is selling them down the Jordan River. So far though this effort is in words. The Israelis are waiting to see what Langley does.”

He said nothing. I smiled. “You guys wouldn’t be Langley’s cutout for thwarting BO regarding Israel, would you? I’d never suspect that...”

He continued to say nothing, gave me only a slight smile in return, and poured me another glass of wine. “The Bordeaux is good, yes?” I nodded.

“You know, the French media worships this man the same as yours in the US. All of this ‘100 days’ talk, it is impossibly stupid. Most anyone in the French elite, the business leaders, Sarko’s people, they all know this. They all think this is some crazy joke of the Americans. But it is a very, very dangerous joke. For 100 days your president has been a laughingstock among the tout le monde No one may be laughing 100 days or 10 months from now.”

He leaned forward. “The world can go - how do you say - sideways with this man very quickly. No one he has working for him knows what they are doing - possibly excepting Mrs. Clinton - and he certainly does not. All of us in our little community are worried - us, our friends in Berlin, London, Tel Aviv, and Langley too as you say. It is not like the barbarians at the gates. It is everythere are no gates. The Somalis, Chavez, Iran, Putin, Beijing, the ‘Norks” as you call them, the list is long and it is growing. We are not sure what to do.”

It took me a moment to respond. “The best thing that has happened now is Obama making Langley his enemy. They will be cooperating with you more, be more a part of your worried community. Working together, you can undermine his efforts more effectively, block and maybe even repair the damage.”

It was my turn to lean forward. “Then again, all together you could be more pro-active. The man is a mystery. Nobody can make public his actual birth certificate, or even the particular hospital he was born in, or his college grades, or how he got into Harvard, or how he made editor of the Harvard Law Review and never wrote a single article for it. It goes on and on. He really is a Zero. I think all of you guys should find all of this out and make it known.”

I added, “The quicker the better, before the laughing stops and the real dangers begin.”

“What is that phrase you use?” he asked. “Something to consider?”

I laughed. “Yes, there is much to consider - and much that you can do. I mean, really, if the Soviet Union could be dismantled, so can this presidency.”

It was a beautiful April afternoon in Paris. He walked me back to my hotel. It could be that the times we live in may get even more interesting.

This is precisely what happens when a people elect someone based SOLELY on their race and not on principal.

Some have learned their lesson (the hard way) whereas others have yet to learn and STILL have hope things will turn out positive ( and will never learn the lesson of Race over ability as long as they breath. )

Regarding "100 DAYS OF BEING A LAUGHINGSTOCK IN PARIS"
Is it possible that (France, England, Israel, and other free western countries) will do everything in their power to help us free ourselves from Obama or will they only do their best to destroy what is left when this is finally resolved here in the U.S.?

Considering it was written at the 100 Day mark, the entire exchange was a fascinating read and across-the-board assessment from a former Frog intel-guy.

The above tidbit especially caught my eye. Here we are approaching the 22nd-month mark - maybe the morale at Langley isn't quite at its breaking point?

I hadn't the notion that the general consensus of Insiders that Langley was a "left-wing outfit." Does anyone know if that is indeed the case?

It’s the furthest left of any US intel organization, a legacy of the “Oh So Social!” era of the OSS and the fact that they recruit from the Ivy Leagues. OTOH, the DIA is probably their opposite and the NSA similar to them. The State Department’s intel people are, as you’d imagine, pretty far left, too.

Langley was a "left-wing outfit."

OK so we're talking about the CIA, right? Wouldn't that be like the fox guarding the hen house?

Ok, I guess Langley's rep is pretty much a consensus then. Thanks.

A leftist State Dept. has been a given I reckon since...oh...FDR.
