It’s good to see that people are finally writing and revealing the fantasy that President Obama is a uniter of Americans! This was false from the beginning; but people clung to that ideal, even as more and more went wrong with America’s economy, standing in the world, and our military preparedness. Even when President Obama bowed to foreign heads of state and further demeaned the Presidency of the United States, excuses, justifications and rationals continued to emerge. The Lieberal media were bent on explaining away every faux pas of Obama. They obfuscated and actually refused to report on stories that reflected badly on him.
Even the Lieberal media is beginning to admit that the enemy at America’s gates is none other than our own President. Obama has derided America here and abroad…derided America’s generosity….derided previous generations of Americans who died to save other countries.
This can’t be the change that voters so enthusiastically supported. Why would a U.S. President hate the very country that he purportedly represents?
Why? Because, as Ms Rabinowitz explains, President Obama essentially doesn’t like America nor American ideals. And, he is hell bent on changing America’s course so far to the left that we will eventually keel over…into socialism. Or worse, other countries will continue to expand their economies and weaponry, at our expense, until we can no longer defend ourselves.
The Alien in the White House
The distance between the president and the people is beginning to be revealed.
The deepening notes of disenchantment with Barack Obama now issuing from commentators across the political spectrum were predictable. So, too, were the charges from some of the president’s earliest enthusiasts about his failure to reflect a powerful sense of urgency about the oil spill.
There should have been nothing puzzling about his response to anyone who has paid even modest critical attention to Mr. Obama’s pronouncements. For it was clear from the first that this president—single-minded, ever-visible, confident in his program for a reformed America saved from darkness by his arrival—was wanting in certain qualities citizens have until now taken for granted in their presidents. Namely, a tone and presence that said: This is the Americans’ leader, a man of them, for them, the nation’s voice and champion. Mr. Obama wasn’t lacking in concern about the oil spill. What he lacked was that voice—and for good reason.
Those qualities to be expected in a president were never about rhetoric; Mr. Obama had proved himself a dab hand at that on the campaign trail. They were a matter of identification with the nation and to all that binds its people together in pride and allegiance. These are feelings held deep in American hearts, unvoiced mostly, but unmistakably there and not only on the Fourth of July.
A great part of America now understands that this president’s sense of identification lies elsewhere, and is in profound ways unlike theirs. He is hard put to sound convincingly like the leader of the nation, because he is, at heart and by instinct, the voice mainly of his ideological class. He is the alien in the White House, a matter having nothing to do with delusions about his birthplace cherished by the demented fringe.
