Quin Hillyer has a dream: If Only Obama Would Abdicate
This boringly ineffective would-be demagogue in the Oval Office keeps trotting out the same tired, petty, counterfactual lines in every one of his pompous, detached-from-reality speeches -- and he did so again in his Saturday radio address. So shopworn is his refrain, and so counterproductive are his policies (both enacted and proposed), that the markets tank just about every time he opens his mouth, and the economy suffers with each minute he continues to occupy the White House. His resignation from office, in abject embarrassment at his failures, would be a great first step toward economic recovery, not to mention a balm to the souls of tens of millions of Americans sick of his condescension, his prevarications, and his incompetence.Read the rest. That Joe "I fully understand" Biden, whose resume of badness is mighty hard to beat, could be considered a step up from King Barack is a testament to the god-awfulness of his reign thus far.
Of course this man's ego won't let him resign, but just think: Vice President Joe Biden, for all his blarney, is a naturally ebullient "people person," a dealmaker, and more a conventional liberal politician than an ideologue. If he ascended to the presidency, the markets would immediately take heart that some sort of rough progress could be fashioned despite Washington's bitter divide. His tone alone would improve the confidence of both consumers and investors and help unleash the "animal spirits" that are necessary for an economy to grow.
Let Barack The One Obama take his hectoring lecturing back to some university classroom somewhere, while the rest of us get about the business of reviving the country we so love. Ahh, we can only wish….
That aforementioned radio address, so beneath what should be the tone and message of an American president that it was downright tawdry, bears some analysis to demonstrate just how far this man has sunk.
Related, from last month: I'll give the Obamessiah credit for one miracle: His narcissism and petulance have made Joe Biden look like a reasonable man. Impressive.
