“End of the Road For Obama”

, , ,

In the Telegraph, Simon Heffer also declares the Obama Administration to be a disaster, and points to his failure as an object lesson for Britons to learn from. How the Chosen One has fallen.

It is a universal political truth that administrations do not begin to fragment when things are going well: it only happens when they go badly, and those who think they know better begin to attack those who manifestly do not. The descent of Barack Obama’s regime, characterised now by factionalism in the Democratic Party and talk of his being set to emulate Jimmy Carter as a one-term president, has been swift and precipitate. It was just 16 months ago that weeping men and women celebrated his victory over John McCain in the American presidential election. If they weep now, a year and six weeks into his rule, it is for different reasons. …

There are lessons from the stumbling of Mr Obama for our own country as we approach a general election. Vacuous promises of change are hostages to fortune if they cannot be delivered upon to improve the living conditions of a people. The slickness of campaigning that comes from a combination of heavy funding and public relations expertise does not inevitably translate into an ability to govern. There is no point a nation’s having the audacity of hope unless it also has the sophistication and the will to turn it into action. As things stand, Barack Obama and America under his leadership do not.

Or, the end of the road for liberty.

It’s us or them.


Essentially all of our institutions remain in the “care” of the Left. Our fight is just beginning. The Left may lose its charismatic leader for now, but there are others out there. Who had heard of Obama ten years ago? Five years ago?
