Barack Obama is not a leader. He’s a wanna-be dictator. A petulant one at that.
The Hill describes the situation in the White House concerning the BP oil spill:
As critics question whether the White House is being tough enough with BP, Obama is reportedly showing his frustration behind closed doors. The Washington Post reported:
Since the oil rig exploded, the White House has tried to project a posture that is unflappable and in command.
But to those tasked with keeping the president apprised of the disaster, Obama’s clenched jaw is becoming an increasingly familiar sight. During one of those sessions in the Oval Office the first week after the spill, a president who rarely vents his frustration cut his aides short, according to one who was there.
“Plug the damn hole,” Obama told them.
That’s not leadership. That’s a tantrum.
And I don’t think it’s a singular event. Remember this report from the NY Times:
As the clock neared 1 a.m., the two sides were at an impasse. Mr. Obama stood up.
“‘See what you guys can figure out,’ ” one participant remembers him saying, adding that the failed effort left the president mad.
This is Obama continuing to vote present, even as President. One gets the idea that Obama is shocked that his will alone didn’t stop the oil from leaking.
And if that doesn’t scare you Iran is still building a nuclear weapon and North Korea just committed an act of war against South Korea and the economy is still tanking and the debt rising. And nobody’s more surprised than Obama.
