We recall that this is a president who bowed from the waist to the Saudi monarch but insolently snubbed the Israeli prime minister during the latter’s now infamous White House visit. We recall, too, that Obama has delivered effusive orations in Cairo and Ankara but has yet to address the Knesset in Jerusalem. His insistence on Israel’s return to the indefensible pre-1967 borders reveals his strong anti-Israel bias; it is no exaggeration to suggest that Obama will not rest content until Israel’s mortgage on the future, like America’s housing sector, is underwater.
As I say, all this is so well-known as to prejudice repetition. Yet that Obama still commands an approval rating that oscillates between 40 and 50%, that various minority groups continue to invest in his presidency despite his having done little to further their cause, that university educated youth cannot realize that an anti-business, redistributionist and bureaucratizing president is diminishing their future job prospects, and that the influential liberal/left constituency refuses to recognize that Obama’s congenial policies may eventually cost them the country they take for granted, quite literally boggles the mind.
If there is such a thing as mental radar, it should immediately have located and identified the president’s subversive agenda. Obama has humiliated his country’s allies, thereby weakening a liberal West already on the point of foundering and rendering conflict and upheaval ever more likely. He has privileged the United Nations over Congress, dismissing America’s legislators with supercilious unconcern. Indeed, to cite the words of John Fonte in Sovereignty or Submission, he is likely aiming for “the subordination of U.S. constitutional law to transnational law.” Obama has left his southwestern border unprotected, sued the state of Arizona for applying the law, and championed an “amnesty” program that would open the door to millions of illegal immigrants. He has snarled American industry in red tape. He has snubbed the owl of Minerva, casting prudence and wisdom to the winds in pursuit of a furtive—but not clandestine—purpose, namely, to Europeanize the United States and transform it into what it was never intended to be: an unexceptional, neo-socialist, debtor nation on the brink of insolvency and progressively vulnerable to the incursion of its enemies. Flouting common sense and sound principles, this scornful president has torpedoed his nation’s interests and well-being.
In short, with a mixture of sectarian determination and ineffable contempt, he has breached the hull of the ship of state.
