I think Franklin Delano Roosevelt did a lot of damage to this country, but I also think he prosecuted World War II with amazing aplomb. His fireside chats were legendary, even though his getting us out of the Great Depression cost us trillions upon trillions of dollars that quite frankly, we can’t afford to be spending anymore.
But at least he did do some good for this country. And he did do some good for the world. I know the liberals feel he’s the supreme leader of all things left-wing. After all, almost every social program ever created was done so under his watch (other than the civil rights stuff, which Johnson did). Even Obamacare has roots in FDR’s time.
So, how is it, with such a liberal and FDR-loving president in the White House now, would he let a Russian communist “out-FDR” him? By kowtowing to the whims of Vladimir Putin in the Middle East, because of his dislike for war and disagreements…because of his wanting the world to like him (which I think speaks volumes of his own personal weaknesses), Bobo Obama has basically turned the mantle of the 21st century FDR over to Putin.
And now Vladimir Putin has basically taken over the world’s foreign policy. He already claimed the title of “World’s most powerful leader” in surveys held about a year ago. And poor little Bobo…the little boy who always needed everyone’s help to accomplish everything in his life, sits idly by and watches from the sidelines. Obama is content to try to tell the world that Putin will fail in his attempts to push back the Syrian rebels, and ISIS (as if Putin gives a rat’s ass about ISIS!). Obama, who never really tried to do anything at all in foreign policy, other than capitulate to Iran’s wishes of a nuclear weapon, is content to sit on the sidelines and cry like the little boy who never got into the neighborhood football game because he was too small.
And it’s because of that cowardly attitude, that inability to stand up for what America believes in, because Obama doesn’t believe in it, that has led to this crisis.
And what’s it going to lead to? Ask Nevil Chamberlin. Do you remember when Chamberlin signed an agreement with Adolf Hitler giving him parts of Czechoslovakia. Chamberlin believed that by doing so, Hitler would be appeased and would stop picking on Europe. What it did in actuality was embolden the Nazi leader to keep going. Obama is making the same mistake. By allowing Russia (and Iran, and Iraq) into Syria without a fight, Bobo is allowing the Middle East to become the new Soviet Union. Because if he thinks Putin is going to be satisfied with propping up his dictator in Syria and will stop there, Obama is as stupid as Chamberlin was.
The Obama Doctrine in the Middle East is fraught with pitfalls and problems. It’s a rat’s nest waiting to be tackled. And either Obama is too stupid to see it, or too blind. Personally, I think he’s still the little boy on the sidelines wanting to get into the game, but afraid if he does, he’s going to get hurt.
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
