CHARLOTTE, NC, July 10, 2014 — Barack Obama cannot wait until November. The president is so excited that he is like a child at Christmas who wants to open all the packages the night before.

Unlike every other president who dreaded the final mid-term elections of their administration, Obama is looking forward to them. November doesn’t represent the end of something for our president. Rather it is the beginning of an unfettered opportunity to run amok within all the parameters he has established during his first six years in office.

It doesn’t really matter to Obama who wins or loses in the mid-terms. He has already shown his lack of concern by the way he has governed the country since his re-election.

Some pundits prattle on about “Mr. Obama and his legacy” as though he really cares about such things. That’s because those analysts are looking at their leader through a lens of history where other presidents did care about the roles they played in perpetuating the American ideal.

Barack Obama’s legacy, on the other hand, was established the moment he took the oath of office in 2009 and became the first black president in history. Nothing else mattered where he was concerned.

That was the only legacy he cared about. Anything else he could contribute to the decline of America was gravy.

What Obama’s followers failed to understand during the earliest years of his administration was that his opponents were not concerned with the color of his skin, but by the inner darkness of his spirit and the blackness of his soul.

When was the last time he gave a speech that did not have condescending tone that mocked opposing ideas or were not filled with ridicule if they disagreed with his point of view?
How long has it been since Americans have heard words of encouragement and achievement?

Was it when he told us, “If you have a small business, you didn’t build that.”
Instead, Obama scolded our entrepreneurial spirit and made us feel ashamed of success. “You had help,” he told us.

And yet, nobody who has ever held the office of President of the United States had more assistance in getting to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue than Barack Obama.

Maureen Scott calls Obama “The Architect.” Not a man with a burning passion to build something beneficial, however. That’s because there is a dot-dot-dot following the word “architect…”. Scott sees the president as “The Architect of Destruction.” He is an implosion expert; ie someone who destroys things from the inside out until they crumble upon themselves.

One of the advisors behind the strategy to bring down the Iron Curtain, Jack Wheeler, made no apologies when he said, “The O-man, Barack Obama, is an eloquently tailored empty suit. He has no real identity. He is half-white, which he rejects.”

In other words, you don’t increase black voter registration by being “half-white.”

Wheeler continues, “The rest of him is mostly Arab, which he hides but is disclosed by his non-African Arabic surname and his Arabic first and middle names as a way to triply proclaim his Arabic parentage to people in Kenya. Only a small part of him is African Black from his Luo grandmother, which he pretends he is exclusively.”

This is not a birther issue, however. Rather it is about leadership. The president refused to go to the Texas border even though he was only a few hundred miles away. His excuse was that he is seeking real solutions rather than “photo ops.”

True, there is little a president as an individual can do to alleviate a major crisis.
True, Obama’s presence would mostly be a photo op.

On the other hand, George Bush was severely chastised for a similar decision following Hurricane Katrina.

It is a matter of leadership. The point is that a presidential appearance shows awareness, concern and compassion.

If Obama’s “photo op” comment had been sincere, it might have meant something, but it was nothing more than another lie in an encyclopedic list of untruths. The reality is that Barack Obama’s entire presidency has been one photo op after another.

When November rolls around and the last votes are counted, the un-lame duck will strap on his super-cape and begin the final stages of his destructive agenda for which he has been laying the groundwork for the past six years.

Obama cannot wait because nothing can stop him and he knows it.

Christmas 2014 begins in November for Barack Obama and his dedicated band of followers.
