The problem is Obama and his elite inner circle think they won and that makes them above the law and above scrutiny.Those who think their president can begin reversing all the Obammy failures in 2017 are dreaming. A sinking world power is the heaviest lift imaginable. Ask Winston Churchill....
The American decline put in motion under this presidency is real, not speculative. We are not at the edge of the cliff, but in October 2013 we are at a serious inflection point.
The problem is not just Obama's incompetence, but also that of every member of his administration serving in any kind of decision-making capacity.
Not one of these individuals understands the Mideast from its complicated history to its complex set of players. And they have certainly never proposed any type of policy -- realistic or otherwise -- to deal with its myriad issues and challenges.
Biden opposed the surge that saved Iraq while proposing to slice the country in three.
Hagel's time in the Senate left behind nothing remarkable other than a record reflecting animosity toward our strongest ally in the region, Israel.
Samantha Power has contemplated invading that ally and is the brains behind "responsibility to protect" which led to the Libya disaster (Tucker Carlson best described Power as having a "freshman seminar view of the world").
Susan Rice will be remembered for lying to the American public about the Benghazi attacks.
At State, Clinton spent a tremendous amount of money traveling the world to accomplish absolutely nothing while the Arab Spring was blossoming into a possible world war (yes, we could be witnessing the beginning of World War III if WMD end up in the wrong hands).
And Kerry, Assad's former BFF and a man who has shown his own disdain for U.S might, has simply stepped in to pick up the pieces left by Clinton before she jumped ship. Both secretaries were also against the surge.
They don't understand the American system. Which is disturbing enough in itself.
But Kathleen Sebelius seems to think she doesn't have to answer to the American people.
Her bosses are the elite inner circle.
And around and around we go...
