Hope for change

Obama came into office in 2009 on the empty campaign slogan of “Hope and Change.” Hope can be a good thing, or a bad thing (e.g. “I hope you get brain cancer”). Change is a different state of affairs than before. It is, at best, neutral. The one word that summarized “Hope and Change” for me? Vacuous.

As is most of what Obama does and says. Not that there won’t be large “changes.” For the worse when it comes to ObamaCare, which, in the words of one of the idiots who voted for it (Max I won’t run for reelection on this piece of shtako Baucus) is a “train wreck.”

But, on most issues, Obama continues to vote “present.” Or be absent entirely. He has been absent entirely the IRS, Benghazi, AP/James Rosen, and NSA scandals. When he has addressed them, he speaks as though someone else was president, with words that convey shock that such a thing could have happened in Washington.

On Syria, with tens of thousands dead, Obama has been the Ditherer-in-Chief, which from Bill Clinton would have been a brilliant tactic. But from Obama the inarticulate? It is the best he could manage, at various stages over the pas two years was just full of the bluff and bluster of the coward (red lines fade to pink fade to nothing).

Now we’ve got another wonder speech in Berlin to less-than-adoring crowds of Germans seeking a new Führer: No, Obama, your star has faded. We will no longer follow you into socialist hell. As part of his overly-wordy speech, Obama focused on something that almost no one in America cares about: further reducing our nuclear arsenal by a third.

In the faculty lounge of ObamaWorld, nuclear weapons are bad, don’t you see? And, no matter what’s going on in the world, reducing our arsenal is always a good thing. After all, won’t our friends in Russia reciprocate as they always have?

After they stop their laughing fit, the Russkies, not for the first time in private, are likely talking about what a fool Obama is. And what fools the Americans are to have elected him twice.

On this they are not wrong: a charlatan like Obama can only succeed when he can promise vacuous things such as “Hope and Change.” When it comes to actually being commander-in-chief and an actual leader, he is a Nancy boy and fails time after time.
