America’s #President: A ‘Kardashian’ in the White House

Obama's presidency is style over substance, fame without portfolio, the selfie with the star. How did we get a Kardashian in the White House?

The #President on Freedom's Gate

WASHINGTON, January 25, 2015 — For the first time in American history, a commander-in-chief is apparently MIA in the Oval Office. According to Politico, New Hampshire Gov. John Sununu called Obama “disengaged” after a 2012 presidential debate.

That was not the first or last time he has been called disengaged. But its not that he does not like to be engaged, its what he wants to be engaged in.  Obama is the entertainment president. He likes to schmooze with entertainers, he celebrates form over substance, he depends on rhetoric over ability.

He came to office with a portfolio almost empty of accomplishments, yet spun it into applause from his fans around the world. He was the greatest orator since Cicero, the Men’s Health cover boy for modern male perfection, the Nobel Prize winner who gave the world a shot of hope.

Obama wowed the Illinois State Senate with his rhetoric.. He cares more about the optic of who he is seen with, then the optic of leadership.  He has posed with prominent leftists like home grown terrorist Bill Ayers, though he denies a relationship between the men exists.

Things didn’t change after he was elected to the U.S. Senate. Rather than keeping his nose to the legislative grindstone to learn the nuts and bolts of the Senate, he returned to his metier, delivering speeches. He mastered the art of “bill jacking” legislation; according to Western Journalism..

He claims credit for a bill that originated with the U.S. Senate Banking Committee — a bill that “divested money from Iran,” according to Western Journalism — when he was not even on the Banking Committee.

President Obama landed at the 2004 Democrat Presidential National Convention, as a man of few achievements but many words. His eye was on the political prize, not on actual problems. He made sure he was seen by the Washington and Hollywood movers and money tree shakers.

He became a political Kardashian, famous and admired without any clear basis for his celebrity.

Black, white, Republicans, Democrats and independents all made this celebutante a Rorschach test. They saw in Obama what they wanted to see, not what he was. Obama saw himself as ultra cool, totally Millennial savvy, a social media guru supreme.

He had learned and absorbed the teachings of fellow Chicagoan, socialist and teacher, Saul Alinsky. It was Alinsky who wrote the infamous bible of leftwing tactics called “12 Rules for Radicals.”

Could this be Obama’s favorite?:

RULE 12: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions. (This is cruel, but very effective. Direct, personalized criticism and ridicule works.)”

There, finally, is a bit of reality in the Obama inkblot. He sold America vaporware with a worm at its heart. He poisoned the well with his relentless, well-rehearsed attacks against his victims: all things Republican, Bush, Fox News, pro-life, pro-gun, pro-traditional family, pro-Reagan, pro-conservative.

He has led the nation into the #Obama era. It is an America where tweets and social media are used to announce official policy, to change the status of his underlings, and to demonize his opposition.

So where does that leave America?

It leaves America frozen in doubt and unable to protect its borders. Counter terrorism experts cannot name who they would be going after if the attackers happen to be #IslamicTerrorists, suspected or otherwise. It leaves Americans like 54-year-old Colleen Hufford as targets, victims of Obama’s political correctness.

America is at a crossroads because, when a president has diminished the nation by leading through hashtags and selfies, the nation can’t be taken seriously by the world. But there’s another way to go, thanks to the 2014 midterm election results, which booted the Democrats from Senate control.

Now, the president has a choice. He can either #compromise with the Republicans in the House and Senate who control both chambers, or he can #play golf and let the grownups run the country. Maybe 2015 will be the year that #America loses the hashtag and sees real leadership emerge. What do you #think?

    When Obama stated that he was going to Change this country, he neglected to say he was going to change the world. His actions have removed the United States as the parent of the world, thus allowing all the children to run wild, absent supervision. Obama’s learning from Alinsky, as well as his years of Islamic schooling in Indonesia, have had its effect; the lack of common sense and intelligence of too many of American voters shares much of the blame for the chaos we, and the rest of the world, finds itself facing.

    WORST President ever. Hands down.
