Obama’s message has been remarkably consistent for his entire presidency. Ever since he told Joe the Plumber on the rope line during the campaign of 2008 that “everybody deserves a fair shot and wealth should be distributed so that everyone is on a level playing field” Obama’s strategy has been unwavering.
We have listened to the prevaricator in chief deliver speech after speech ad nauseam and the talking points are always crystal clear. That is transparency. Like it or not, Mr. Obama is President Cellophane.
It is a conundrum to be sure; a phenomenon that has no precedent. Perhaps Rush Limbaugh said it best when he came to the realization that Barack Obama is like a glove-wearing thief who leaves no trace of his fingerprints on anything he does.
As Limbaugh puts it, Obama never governs because he is a perpetual campaigner.
The concept is simple. If you are continuously in conflict with your opponents you can make a compliant media and an uninformed public believe that you are working your tail off to “fix” things for the American people. In other words, never solve anything, just keep “fixing” them and making profound statements that you are in a never-ending battle with your evil opponents to fight for the little man.
So while the president is the most transparent chief executive in history, he is also the most confrontational. Confrontation is the catalyst Obama thrives upon, and most of the time he wins.
Forget the fact that the president is a walking contradiction. You know he is lying the moment he opens his mouth, but the words always sound good, and he never strays from his core message, even when the teleprompter doesn’t work. Barack Obama is, indeed, transparent.
The bad news is that the president’s lack of involvement in all things domestic and global have made the world a far more dangerous place than it was when he took office.
As Marco Rubio puts it, “the danger (is) a world in which we increasingly refuse to lead. There are few global challenges that can be solved without decisive American leadership.”
Barack Obama chooses NOT to lead on anything. He would rather focus on being politically correct on an international scale than to confront the challenging problems we face worldwide. As a result there are daily protests in the streets of
This isn’t leadership. On the contrary. It is the exact opposite. It is a refusal to act on major developments that affect the lives of, not only Americans, but the global community as well.
But it is transparency. Obama’s transparency.
That is why we are treated to expensive personal rounds of golf with Tiger Woods. It is why the president is not to be bothered in the middle of the night when terrorist attacks are taking place in the streets of
Call it what you will, but there is no denying the president’s transparency. He does nothing to hide his contempt for the American people while all the time saying he “will not rest in his fight for the common man.” Transparency, Obama style.
“A crisis in East Asia or the
Obama’s philosophy is to ignore problems and they will simply go away. Such minute details are far less important to Barry than the break of his next 15-foot putt.
But if Rubio gets it when he says, “indifference or inaction undermines
Why? Because Barack Obama doesn’t want to. And as long as the public remains disinterested and uniformed while the media gives him a pass, the message will continue and the president will just keep on “fixing” things.
That’s because Barack Obama is truly transparent. You can see right through him.
