The boy who cried wolf eventually learned his lesson. After rallying the countryside for his amusement several times, a wolf did show up. By that time the villagers no longer believed him. The wolf ate the sheep.
For six years in Washington, D.C., in an effort to never let a crisis go to waste, President Obama has been in perpetual campaign mode, always on offense, rallying voters to his cause. But the world has turned ever more rapidly against President Obama and his worldview. The American public less and less believes President Obama now.
Six years ago, then-candidate Obama took to the world stage, his nomination as the Democrats’ presidential candidate secure, and said with a straight face that “this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal.” ISIS and Ebola were not on his radar.
Fast forward six years and President Obama is no longer trying to let crises go to waste, but stop them from ruining the last two years of his presidency. President Obama first told the American public ISIS consisted of a bunch of amateurs. They were the junior varsity team. Now they are on the verge of capturing Baghdad, having overrun the Iraqi army throughout Iraq.
The Syrian rebels were too rag-tag and weak to take on ISIS, according to President Obama. But within a week of saying that, he announced to the world that his plan in Syria was to arm those rag-tag rebels and have them do our bidding against ISIS.
The president also told the American public that Ebola would never come to the United States. When it finally arrived, he said there would be no outbreak. Now he wants Americans to know there will be no serious outbreak. The president has cried wolf too many times. He has politicized so much of the federal government, Americans now view the IRS as the president’s henchmen. Faith in the CDC collapses by the minute. (_)
I have felt repulsed by Barack Obama for nearly his entire term in office. I’ve ranted and I’ve raved to the point where close friends look at me strangely while telling me I’ve gone off the deep end. (One granddaughter won’t even have me in her home because I “say things that upset people.”)
The worm, however, has turned. My kids (and friends) no longer think I’m a conspiratorial whackjob. They’ve come to see Obama for the creep he is; they’ve seen the job market shrink month by month; they’ve seen their health care costs soar beyond belief.
They’ve seen a nationwide assault on morality, and they’ve seen the persecution of Christians by homosexual activists with zero tolerance for tolerance and amoral atheist bullies using activist judges to attack American Christianity.
I admit to feeling enormous satisfaction at reading that Obama’s campaign appearance in a heavily Democratic Maryland district led to an exodus of black voters before he finished his remarks. People actually walked out on the World’s Smartest, Most Magical Negro before he had completed his remarks.
Perhaps the public backlash I’d hoped for in 2012 has finally begun. Perhaps the American people want their country back.
