WHEN YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO, YOU DO WHAT YOU DO KNOW…OR PLAY GOLF

If President Obama knew how to create jobs he would be creating jobs because it would further his chances for re-election.  If his administration had a record of accomplishment the President would run on his record.  But he can’t because they haven’t.  The Messiah aura is extinguished.  Hope and Change is not a re-usable product.  And so, in such a situation what is a President to do to seek re-election?

A president does what he knows and plays every card he has, even if his best card is no higher than the Jack of Clubs.  Therefore, we are seeing an all out class war and a great deal of chest thumping reminding us that Osama bin Laden was found and executed on the President’s watch.  President Barack Obama may not know that Austrian is not a language or that the U.S. has only 50 states, but he does know how to use class warfare to demagogue his way into winning an election.

With respect to bin Laden, the real kudos, go of course, to the members of the military who actually did the job.  They are our heroes, not the people who ordered or authorized it.  Nevertheless, Obama should be given credit for his contribution to this success.

With no winnable path available on the high ground, the low ground is the only path left to the Democrats.  We yearn for a Reagan but it may be what we really need is a Lincoln.

  1. A scary innuendo – the last sentence – but it shows just how serious this really is.
