COMMENTARY’s Peter Wehner: Watching the Obama Presidency Die


Thusly Wehner sums up:

We are watching the Obama presidency die. The cause of death? Massive incompetence. Flawed ideology. And the Obama agenda coming into contact with reality.”

(Seriously, Wehner?) I know what you’re thinking: He’s missed the obvious.  Our citizenry can forgive, even forget lapses of competence.  A flawed ideology we can live with. We understand that reality jumps up and bites hard now and then.  Wehner poses a weak argument to suggest that a confluence of the imperfect is what ails this Presidency and Administration.  It’s such a seriously flawed analysis that it reflects badly on its author.

Rather, what Americans won’t abide is a confluence of Arrogance, Lies & Malfeasance, and Massive Corruption.  The Chicago Way, yes?  Especially the lies and the weaponization of the IRS.  It is one thing to be haughty and corrupt; these are selfish.

It is the lies and the institutional war against its political opponents through the instrumentality of the State that are the most damning… and the most dangerous.  These are what is causing the Presidency and the Administration to wane.

(Mr. Wehner, sir, you mentioned something about being t-boned by reality. (cough)  Reality, sir.  Want fries with that? – Ed.)

    Brakabama is doing exactly what a doctrinaire Marxist would do were able to scam his way into the White House. He isn’t losing. He isn’t failing.

    His job is to let the air out of a tire. He’s doing it. He’s also making sure the air will keep going away after he is gone. It’s a dream from his derelict father.

    The summons will come after this bucktoothed dipshit is gone. The republican party will answer for what these vermin have done.

    It’s a frightening time to be an American. Let us consider ourselves lucky that we were born in these times and fight these evil fuckers.

      Put that way, I agree completely.

      (And for our new customers, Coffer’s use of the term ‘evil’ is not careless. We face evil. Deal with it.)

    What is so damned tragic is that all of it, every last bit, was predicted by those of us who held just a healthy degree of skepticism of the man; call it a smidgen of skepticism regarding Obama’s capabilities, intentions and intellect. Even worse, the “Free Press” in whom the Founders had implicitly placed so much trust and independent power through the First Amendment, failed dismally in its intended function. Who could have imagined that in the 40+ years since the press brought down the Nixon Administration it could be so easily transformed into little more than a pampered lap dog by a far more evil cabal than Nixon’s inner circle..
