Why can't the community organizer organize a community?
The American Thinker ^ | 9-7-13 | Silvio Canto, Jr.

As you may recall, much of Senator Obama's message in 2008 was about international coalitions. He mocked President Bush for "going at it alone." I guess that 40-something countries in Iraq was not a big enough coalition. Or, having UK, Canadian and other NATO soldiers take bullets in Afghanistan was not enough either.

Today, President Obama stands alone in the world. He can't even get the UK in Syria. He has found some "moral support" but no one is offering airplanes or missiles.

President Obama is saying that the world drew a "red line." However, no one seems ready to enforce it or fight for the innocent people of Syria.

President Obama is painfully learning that it was easier to build coalitions in the campaign trail than from The Oval Office.

This is the latest about the coalition that won't coalesce:

He can.

Community organizers are for the black community.

Those are not communities of non-thinking air headed drugged out inner city government dependents! They are intelligent, world wise, educated diplomatically trained sophisticates who see through his intellectual nakedness like a just Windexed window. In way over his pay grade and intel level.

During the time of his community organizing days, it was really easy to be a community organizer. First it wasn't as dangerous as in the civil rights era of the 40s-60s, where activists could have been and sometimes were lynched. It was during the time when all of the hard battles had already been won, and the opposition, whatever that was, was used to rolling over and giving activists whatever they wanted. Second, community organizers usually didn't fight actual adversaries, but other left wing interests, like teacher's unions, city governments, etc. So really it wasn't negotiating against competing interests.

The first time he ever had to negotiate against competing interest groups is when he became president, negotiating with Congress and other nations. In order for the president to be successful with these groups, he needs to find win-win solutions where both can feel their interests are satisfied. But he has no skills to do that. This is why is just trys to go around Congress and do whatever he wanted anyway.

Maybe it's because he was a community raper not a community organizer!?!

Obama's "community organizing" left Chicago neighborhoods in ruins.

Grim proving ground for Obama's housing policy Boston Globe June 27, 2008

"About 99 of the units are vacant, many rendered uninhabitable by unfixed problems, such as collapsed roofs and fire damage. Mice scamper through the halls. Battered mailboxes hang open. Sewage backs up into kitchen sinks. In 2006, federal inspectors graded the condition of the complex an 11 on a 100-point scale - a score so bad the buildings now face demolition."

Ah, perhaps this “community organizer” is a complete fraud? Obama couldn’t organize an orgy in a gay bath house with a fist full of $100 bills and a wallet full of credit cards. Ask Rahm Emanuel and Reggie Love.

Maybe he forgot to mention that there are 72 virgins for everyone who joins up.

His organizing days just like Union organizing had only one game plan - intimidation and threats of violence. When these do not worK, there is no other plan than lies and name calling. Explains everything the One has EVER tried to do and why his Syria policy/ distraction is failing so miserably.

Obama is now and always has been a clueless Chauncy Gardener!!

He’s spent the last five years insulting and snubbing our traditional allies and sucking up to America’s enemies.

The communities he organized are morons who only vote based on color.
