Kennedy got it right
John F. Kennedy said: “There are risks and costs to a program of action. But they are far less than the long-range risks and costs of comfortable inaction.”
Once in a while I get stuck. Many call it Writer’s Block. I call it a bunch of aggravating schmutz stuck in my head. It’s mental constipation. You know there’s something there, you just can’t get it out, hence the quote.
Obama has a history of walking on a political treadmill. He keeps walking but never understands he’s going nowhere. He goes through the motions of ambulation but has no idea he’s got no destination other than in his head and when he stops he’ll be the same sad excuse for a political with no real success to his credit.
He got Nancy Pelosi and her companion crones to pass the Affordable Care Act (ACA) which neither shows any care for the people it’s smothering nor is it affordable. For this we’ve seen the treadmill start rolling. From the ACA he moved to making sure we completely pulled out of Iraq. In a procedure akin to coitus interruptus he started the act and pulled us out too soon and now we have ISIS/ISIL to contend with; but only after he underestimated them so badly Iraq is on the table like a fat turkey being carved from the rest of the Middle East. Now nobody feels they accomplished anything of good and everybody is dissatisfied and frustrated.
Then, he started to make noise about closing Guantanamo. Then he didn’t. Then he tried to get more and more terrorists tried in the continental borders of America. That went over like a passing gas in a Hazmat Suit. Through his sock-puppet Eric Holder has stonewalled investigations of governmental malfeasance in supplying known Mexican criminals with firearms and refusing to cooperate with Congress investigating the Benghazi Incident.
Obama’s never been one to show any special element of humility. It’s more like hubris and of an extreme sort. In order to assure we appreciate his “superior” intellect and political skill and acumen, he advised us he was in the Top Ten presidents in history. It could be said; “not so far Kemo Sabe”. He’s pretty much in the cellar as far as his batting average concerns legislation sponsored, initiated personally or passed by the Congress. This is because he won’t leash his guard dog (more a rabid coyote) Harry Reid so legislation offered by the Republican directed House of Representatives can move forward.
Obama can’t get anything done through accepted Constitutional procedures. He’s resorted to Executive Orders to get things done. This is a complete annulment of and insult to the Constitution and the American people. But, he keeps walking that particular treadmill going nowhere.
Now we have Ebola to contend with. The fear mongering and efforts to control panic have worked antithetically to assure the American people are protected. Obama is more worried about damaging the economic growth of “emerging nations” than protecting American citizens. He won’t stop the entry of people from Ebola affected countries. He can’t command the Center for Disease Control (CDC) to develop and initiate specific and effective procedures to prevent infection of care givers and people simply sitting next to an effected person when his/her temperature spikes at 104 degrees or unloads intestinally in a projectile fashion either orally or otherwise.
Obama has finally fallen through that fuzzy pink cloud he’s been floating on since becoming the first black president. Now he’s being seen as a carbuncle needing to be lanced, disinfected and removed from the corpus of a failed presidency. He’s beginning to understand the only thing going to be entered concerning his administration will be placed behind the administrations of William Henry Harrison, Warren Harding and Herbert Hoover.
The motor keeps spinning the rotor makes Obama seem to move toward a sunset never growing closer but surely will trap him in the darkness of history refusing revision. To gain our justice all we need do is tell the truth about him.
But, we must NEVER forget the damage he’s done with “long-range risks and costs of comfortable inaction.”
Thanks for listening
