The counterintuitive promises of President Obama truly boggle the mind.
He promised an end to Guantanamo Bay, America's meddling wars in other lands and government spying under the guise of the Patriot Act. The president did not deliver on these promises.
He promised jobs. There are precious few under this incompetent administration.
He promised transparency. We get lies; and we get stonewalling, whether it's the "Fast and Furious" scandal, the Solyndra scandal or simply the attempt to obtain information the government is supposed to readily supply. Attempts by groups to obtain information via the Freedom of Information Act have been fruitless or have taken suspiciously inordinate amounts of time. To say it's been like pulling teeth is surely an understatement.
Obama promised America would once again be respected around the world. However, we have been dissed, disrespected and laughed at in the face of the president's weakness, appeasement, bowing to foreign leaders and kowtowing to nations such as Iran who have met Obama's attempted friendly overtures with violence, killing and a further development of nuclear weapons programs.
He promised debt reduction. Our debt has soared into the stratosphere.
He even promised tax reduction and moving toward a balanced budget. Perhaps some of you have forgotten that promise; it has not been kept.
He promised hope and change. Hope has turned to hopelessness and change to failed policies and feckless indecisiveness.
Because this is a counterintuitive presidency, we apparently are to cheer Obama's failures. We apparently are to bow down, Obama-like, and unquestioningly follow our dear leader. We are to ask no questions, express no doubts and follow lamb-like into the darkness. God help us.
