President commits political suicide by jumping from the "precipice"

A few days ago, our Glorious Leader, Barack Hussein Obama has sobered up and made a surprisingly astute observation about his Medical Care bill: "From the discussions we had, it's clear we are on the precipice of achievement that's eluded Congresses, presidents for generations -- an achievement that will touch the lives of nearly every American." For those unclear about the usage of the word "precipice" - let me remind you that it means either "an overhanging or extremely steep mass of rock, such as a crag or the face of a cliff" or "the brink of a dangerous or disastrous situation".

It is clear that Obama's understanding of the implications of the Health Care Reform is very much attuned to the views of nearly 60% of Americans, who are against this travesty. Nevertheless, Obama decided to publicly jump of the cliff, the same "precipice" he was talking about - confirming once again the wisdom of an old proverb: "Those whom the gods wish to destroy, they first make mad." The funny part is that Obama did not jump alone - luckily for us he persuaded the entire Democratic Party and the media to follow him. It's as if madness is contagious.

How did we arrive here? It's amazing if one remembers how well the Obama's presidency was starting - the media adored him, the crowds loved him. Newsweek proclaimed that Obama was a "some kind of God", while MSNBC’s commentators were climaxing every time they mentioned his name. Barry photos were on all newspapers and magazines – even pet stores featured his portraits. And lets not forget my favorite - remember a youtube video of a liberal activist proclaiming that "I wont have to worry about putting gas in my car, I won't have to worry about paying my mortgage.. You know, If I help him, he's gonna help me." How’s that working for you, babe?

Back then, Barack Obama was confidently following Napoleon's maxim that "A leader is a dealer in hope." But pretty soon things starting going South. Firstly, Obama demonstrated that he had no inclination to take his job seriously, which was obvious when one were to watch how slowly and ineffectively he was forming his administration. At times of severe economic crisis, he took nearly a year to fill up the positions that had to do with economics and finances. He also managed to over-hype the stimulus package, which was supposed to keep the unemployment below 8%. And then, there were constant parties, golfing tours, and speeches, speeches, speeches - speeches about everything and nothing.

What was even worse, is that Obama continued to push the most left-wing agenda in the US history, both domestically and abroad. In his vanity, Obama forgot that “The great proof of madness is the disproportion of one's designs to one's means." America is essentially a center-right nation, and its population is still far more progressive than the Western European people. In the end, Obama’s attack on the fundamental principles of this nation could not succeed. To me, an immigrant from theformer Soviet Union, Obama’s regime represents the most consistent attempt to destroy this nation, more dangerous than the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. And still, I believed in 2008, and I believe now that Obama is destined to fail. Sure, he will/was be able to run wild for a couple of years, but after that there is little expectation of success for him.

I am confident that the only thing Obama did was to awaken a sleeping giant and filled him with a terrible resolve.

And last but not least, Obama himself proved to be a far less capable politician than was previously advertised. He revealed himself to be a snarky arrogant fool, whose minute of fame is over, and whose time of eternal infamy has just begun. As Napoleon said: "When small men attempt great enterprises, they always end by reducing them to the level of their mediocrity." And I say – Amen to that!

Note 1
In 1940, the Imperial Japanese Navy Admiral Isoruku Yamamoto, spoke to the Japanese Cabinet during planning for war with the United States in 1940 and said "I can run wild for six months... After that, I have no expectation of success.”

Note 2
In 1941, after successfully executing the attack on Pearl Harbor, Admiral Yamamoto was still very pessimistic: "I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve."
