I'm not particularly interested in what an Australian has to say about the state of our sinking ship of state or Obama; however, a few interesting points are made.

Obama's speech - moronic though it was - delivered a message to his supporters.

He is NOT the President of all Americans; he is only the President of those who donate to him and pledge their fealty. The rest of us are screwed. It's commonly understood among conservatives that our country's collapse is his goal. He's more a Captain Ahab than he is a Captain Queeg; America is the white whale and he intends to spear it. And I for one hope he comes to the same end as Ahab, figuratively, of course. What delicious irony.

I think it’s a combination of the two things. Obama and everyone around him are genuinely incompetent and believe that wishing will make things happen. At the same time, the little voices in Obama’s head - Bill Ayers, Al Sharpton, etc. - genuinely hate America and do want to sink it and crush anyone who defends it. So we have the worst of both Queeg and Ahab.

I think one of the things that has slowed the reaction of our few responsible politicians, however, has been this very confusion. Is he just incompetent and slow to learn, or is he doing these bizarre things purposely? I think in his first term , many people thought he was just in over his head, since he is clearly uneducated and not very bright, but now people are realizing that you don’t have to be smart or knowledgeable to be a hate-filled would-be dictator. The question is whether they have realized this too late to halt him.

Come on, any criminal law attorney could tell you they have a class of clients who aren't elementally evil, they are simply incredibly stupid and prone to make errors in an every flowing stream of aberrant behavior.

That's Obama!

This guy is the EIEIO queen of the last century. He has the degrees, the titles, and in the end wasn't picked up by even a third rate law firm. He has supporters who'd like to think of him as being a private in the ranks who rose to Field Marshall in WWII ~ but he's much more like a private in the ranks of the Bulgarian POWs brought into the Fuhrer bunker for the purpose of donating flora and fauna to Adolph Hitler.

Tom Hanks played the part much better, but of course Forrest Gump had better writers behind him!

NOTE: That doesn't get his handlers of the hook ~ some of them are mad dog killers and perverts of the worst sort.

He is simply grappling, more and more disastrously, with a job too big for him.

Dani comes to mind...

At the risk of a dose of Obama’s megalomania, I compared him to Capt Queeg as early as 2009.

Why figuratively? The need is real
