Why Obama Scares Me
Townhall.com ^ | March 21, 2014 | Mona Charen

Posted on 03/21/2014 6:09:22 AM PDT by Kaslin

The most febrile of George W. Bush haters liked to claim during his tenure that the former president "scared" them. There is far more reason to be frightened by President Barack Obama, because fecklessness and inconstancy trigger wars.

The outstanding example of weakness inviting aggression was the conduct of the democracies toward Adolf Hitler in the 1930s. Though it has been retroactively tainted as shameful cowardice, the policy of appeasement grew out of a "war weariness" that was far more understandable than our own. Britain and France suffered millions of dead and wounded in World War I and were desperate to avoid a repeat. The Munich Agreement, which ceded part of Czechoslovakia to Germany (without its consent), was signed by Britain and France in hopes that Hitler's ambitions were limited, but in any case because they believed appeasement was the best way to avoid war.

They couldn't have been more wrong. Hitler didn't, to put it mildly, share their abhorrence of war. He welcomed it (when he was sufficiently strong) and he interpreted their appeasement policy as weakness. They'd forgotten the Roman axiom: "If you want peace; prepare for war." In the end, they had to fight anyway, but only after permitting their enemy valuable time. Had the United States not been dragged into the war by Japan's attack and Hitler's declaration of war on us, the Axis powers would almost certainly have won.

In June of 1961, President John F. Kennedy met with Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev. The communist sized up the young president as callow and unimpressive. Kennedy said later that it was "the worst thing in my life. He savaged me." Eighteen months later, the world was plunged into a nuclear crisis as Kennedy was forced to respond to the USSR's placement of intermediate-range missiles in Cuba. Khrushchev had concluded that Kennedy could be rolled. The resulting showdown brought the world close to nuclear war.

In July of 1991, April Glaspie, U.S. ambassador to Iraq, met with Saddam Hussein and asked very politely why he had so many divisions parked on the border of Kuwait. Later in the same meeting, she said, "We have no opinion on your Arab/Arab conflicts, such as your dispute with Kuwait. Secretary (James) Baker has directed me to emphasize the instruction ... that the Kuwait issue is not associated with America." A few weeks later, Iraq invaded and conquered Kuwait, prompting former President George H.W. Bush to launch a war to liberate it. Glaspie said later, "Obviously, I didn't think, and nobody else did, that the Iraqis were going to take all of Kuwait."

Obama and members of his administration are fond of lecturing Vladimir Putin that he is behaving in a "19th century" fashion, as if aggression has gone out of style like knee breeches. Actually, the second half of the 19th century was quite a peaceful one for Europe, particularly compared with the 18th and 17th centuries. That peace was largely maintained by the British Empire, that is, by overwhelming power in the hands of a peaceful country.

Nothing so encourages an aggressor as the perception of weakness in his antagonists. Obama hasn't even processed that he is an antagonist. Why, he means no one any harm (except perhaps Republicans). Didn't he reset relations with Moscow? Didn't he promise in 2012 to show "more flexibility" toward Putin after the election? Didn't he say, over and over again, that a "decade of war is ending" and that we are going to do some "nation building here at home"? Did he not maneuver the United States into "leading from behind" in Libya? Hasn't he pressured allies like Israel to make concessions to the Palestinians while permitting Mahmoud Abbas to skate? Hasn't he let bygones be bygones about the Edward Snowden unpleasantness? Hasn't he drastically reduced defense spending? Didn't he give Bashar Assad a third chance after drawing red lines? Hasn't he sought to ingratiate himself with China's brutal regime (his family is traveling there this week)? Didn't he permit Putin to oversee Assad's supposed surrender of chemical weapons? How could a leader be more unthreatening?

Remember all of those previous appeasers who were surprised that aggressors went further than expected? Consider this report from the BBC: "Russia signaled concern on Wednesday at Estonia's treatment of its large ethnic Russian minority, comparing language policy in the Baltic state with what it said was a call in Ukraine to prevent the use of Russian. Russia has defended its annexation of Ukraine's Crimea Peninsula by arguing it has the right to protect Russian speakers outside its borders ... "

Estonia is a member of NATO. There was a time when that would have been dispositive. But Obama has demonstrated that his threats are hollow and his stated boundaries accordion-like. That's why Obama scares me.

Why Obama scares me...well, yesterday received a telephone survey. Curious what I view as the biggest problem facing my family; my comment: I view the nitwit in the whitehouse as an incompetent whose actions will either get us into a destructive military engagement we will not win and or a financial collapse of this country. When asked for further details my comment was I don’t have any faith in the ability of this administration to handle any problems the country has in an ethically impartial manner toward a goal which benefits this nation.

I expect an audit or visit from the the secret service sometime this AM.

Whenever an affirmative action beneficiary is utilized in lieu of an actually qualified individual, you are at significant risk that the results will be scary.

The United States has not been perfect. Throughout our history we have done some bad things. All of us acknowledge that. But the United States has done far more good things and that's what obama does not acknowledge. He does not see the good that we have done. He's been taught this his entire life, starting with his mother. He sees America as white America and he's on a mission to punish it.

And Korea.....don’t forget Korea!

In 1950, equally vapid Sec of State for Truman, Dean Acheson stood in front of the entire DC press corps at the Press Club and gave his infamous “Perimeter Speech”. In it he outlined what the US geographic interests were.....and “accidentally” left our Korea. 6 Months later, the Nork’s, encouraged on by both Czar Stalin and Emperor Mao invaded the South and the rest can be seen in the MASH reruns with Alan Alda.

Pattern looks pretty obvious now?

The stupid, the weak, the naive, and boy kings and other newbies will always get manhandled, b!tch slapped, and laughed at by the old dawgs of diplomatic realpolitik.

Hey, ya know...Putin has ABSOLUTELY no more territorial claims in Europe. Honest. None. Zippo. Zilch.

Until the tanks are gassed up again. And we of course are defended by Commander Zero and slavering attack basset hound called John.

Certainly a dire duo of disaster that deserves disrespect.

But what the hell do I know.

Truthfully, we should be terrified of what both men represent. W. Bush gave us a fully formed, reckless, inefficient and unconstitutional police-intelligence-espionage state; and Obama’s “reactionary progressivism” has the worst elements of both socialism and national socialism.

Seemingly, both the Democrats and the Republican establishment *hate* the idea of “normalcy”, just leaving the people *alone* to live their lives. They are like hateful, nagging and scolding cheerleaders to catastrophe.

Probably the *best* thing Obama has done, he has done out of fear. That is to run away and hide, even from his fawning, sycophantic, ass-kissing media. Even with a thousand reporters bleating their undying love for him and swearing pseudo-sexual fealty to him, he runs away in fear from anyone, just a single one, who asks an honest question.

Truthfully, I crave a president who is the opposite of Bill Clinton, who is seen in public perhaps once a month, and then still says nothing, along with the rest of his administration. A president who is boring, dry, efficient, and pro-liberty and freedom. A president who doesn’t pester us. Who doesn’t commit foul and petty offenses in office to disgust us.

A president who is so busy deconstructing the federal government that he doesn’t have time to be annoying. Just issue pink slips to half the federal workforce, and do so without comment. Close entire agencies of government as being outside of federal authority. Slash spending to create a huge surplus, and *not* spend it, but use it to take big chunks out of the ginormous federal deficit.

It would be an incredibly boring four years; punctuated if at all by his “Maximing our oppressors” around the world. And it would likely be followed by another boring four years, in which the public would again learn to appreciate employment, prosperity and liberty, without having to look at his ugly puss every danged night on TV.

I've posted before, he scares me in that at some point Zer0 is going to tire of all the weak, impotent, type comments and do something stupid to show what a he-man he is.
He (and democrats in general) think their powers of persuasion can change the minds of despots. That his preemptive destroying our military as a 'good faith' gesture would cause our rivals to do the same.
Idiocy.

While we are reducing our standing army, cutting our stealth fighter orders, mothballing the Navy, destroying our nuke ability, Russia is developing and testing new ICBMs. China in building their military at record pace.

The Ukraine crisis started years ago with our weakening our military. And yes, Donald Rumsfeld had a hand in it.

Iran should have been dealt with during the Bush era too.

items in the preceding paragraphs have been put into place. All can be
documented very easily. Before you disavow this, do an Internet search. The
last paragraph alone is not yet cast in stone. You and I will write that
paragraph. Will it read as above or will it be a happier ending for most of
America?

Yep. That's how small, stupid men behave, and BO is amongst the smallest and dumbest.

Usually, it's on a small scale. They run their mouth and get their butt kicked at a honky-tonk on Saturday nite. Or, they abuse their subordinates at work. Or kick their dog to feel powerful. Etc.

But this time, the guy has his finger on the nuclear button. And, after he pushes it (damn the consequences! I'm IN CHARGE here!!) all of his sycophants will swoon and comment on how powerful he is.

Right before they all get vaporized, or marched off to various unpleasant camps, or worse.

Let me count the ways:

1. He’s not a natural born citizen
2. There is no rule of law
3. There are no controls on the Executive Branch
4. Congress could care less
5. The states have no power over the federal government.

baraq, his team and his media have been setting up our country for a fall. Wrecking the economy and intentionally weakening our military will lead to either another economic crash or another 9/11 type attack.

What scares me is that if we suffer such an event, they will be the ones in charge. And we know who their enemies are.

Hmmmm, in Estonia Vlad the Impaler might see an opportunity to break NATO .... which, if he did that, would conceivably allow him to broom up a lot of Central and even Western European countries one by one, isolating, freezing, ..... hey, wait, where have we heard that language before?

Anyway, this is a potential major war scenario. Hence Mona's worry.
