“He does not believe in this country.”

March 5th, 2014 - 12:45 pm

Ralph Peters is one of my favorite authors of modern fiction, in no small part because of his talent for creating real characters and then putting them (and the reader) through absolute hell. But that’s nothing compared to what the retired Army LTC had to say on Fox last night:

Look, the bottom line on this is Russia has a real leader. You may not like him, and I don’t, but he is brilliant and ruthless, he has clear goals and he moves straight toward those goals. The West lacks a leader. Like it or not, the president of the United States is the de facto leader of the West, and our president just is — he’s incapable and unwilling to lead.

The weakness is phenomenal. Now, you know, we are not weaker than we were in the Carter years. I was in that military, it was pathetic. Our military today is the best in the world, best in our history, although Obama wants to dismantle it. We’re also immensely wealthier than the Carter years. The problem is, that as a president Obama is far weaker than Carter, and he’s probably the worst president we’ve ever had.

He is a man who’s incapable of making a hard decision. And by the way, one other key point, Vladimir Putin believes in Russia. He believes in Russia’s destiny, its mission. Obama does not believe in American exceptionalism. He does not believe in this country.

RCP has the video if you want to watch Peters in action.

That last bit isn’t news however to anyone paying attention to these things. Here’s Professor Wiggleroom in his own words:

I believe in American exceptionalism, just as I suspect that the Brits believe in British exceptionalism and the Greeks believe in Greek exceptionalism.

When everyone is special, no one is.

It's not the man that's so depressing, it's the fact that a man as incompetent and anti-American as he could get re-elected. We're toast because of what we have become as a people.

One of the Leftist Borg left a little present on the Real Clear Politics site, saying "Obama weak? He took out Osama Bin Laden!"

Er, NO. Leon Panetta had to order the Seals into action AFTER Valerie Jarrett (Obama's Rasputin) told him on THREE separate occasions previously NOT to let them kill OBL, when our men had the guy teed up for elimination. He VETOED it THREE TIMES, then Panetta, fed up, and the generals did an end run around the Quisling in Chief, and set the mission in motion.

Then they sent some guys to the golf course (yes, see his attire in that famous Situation Room photo) to get him and more or less presented the creep with a fait accompli.

Even then, the Quisling in Chief couldn't be bothered to watch the whole mission -- he went upstairs to his private quarters with his "body man" Reggie Love to "play cards." Yeah, right. Whatever.

There Are No Words Bad Enough for this SOB. Or for the SOBs who voted him in.

To paraphrase Michelle Obama; "For
The first time in my life I'm ashamed of America."
To think the man they elected was attending
An Islamic grade school in Indonesia while his war hero
opponent was a prisoner of war in Vietnam.
Idiots!
Now we're reaping the bitter fruits of our
Mindless stupidity.

To be fair to Obama, Britain and Greece are, or have been, exceptional countries; or to be more precise, all countries are exceptional, but some are, or have been, more exceptional than others; and that includes, inter alia, Britain and Greece.

What Obama should have been asked is whether he believes that the US has been, and should continue to be, a force for freedom. The more precise the question, the less room there is for evasion.

Key point is "have been" exceptional countries. Today Greece is a bankrupt third-world country and Britain is heading in that direction.

But yes, the more precise the question, the less room there is for evasion.

For example: Pres. O, do you believe that Mohammed was truly a prophet? That he spoke for God? And that his statements concerning how Jews and Christians corrupted God's word are true? And do you believe that Jesus was sent by God to save us from our sins? And that Jesus was "divine" (at least getting direction from God)? And if Jesus was divine why did he not foresee the new prophet Mohammed who would lead the Bedouins to God??? And you have referred to the Koran as the Holy Koran. How do you refer to the books that the Jews and Christians have followed??

A retired army LTC really said that? On Fox? Unbelievable!

C'mon. America has actually been in worse places in her history. We can recover from this.

Suppose men "love their wives", and claim they just want to "fundamentally transform" them into someone else, for the wife's own good of course. They're called wife beaters. Obama's love affair with America is of the same kind.

Yes and we are suffering "battered wife syndrome."

The facts are too scary and depressing. Thanks for the tip on Ralph Peters's fiction.

He also writes a Civil War era series as Owen Parry.

To be fair, John McCain is a war hero, and he's also a progressive statist who would have given us at least another 4 years of plodding socialism.

Presumably the sort of officer being purged from Obama's Army. E.g. A competent one.

I agree with the good colonel. You don't "fundamentally transform" something you already like. Nor do you view our Natural Rights as "negative liberties."

I disagreee. Obama isn't the worst President ever; I think he's still tied with James Buchanan.

Buchanan was a traitorous homosexual who allowed the Civil War to get a running start, resulting in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people, and the destruction of half the country, after he left office. We'll see in the next three years if BHO can top that.

If he's tied with any president, it would be Wilson or (F)Roosevelt.

You can't be serious!

Wait.... You aren't one of those people who still thinks that Obama is incompetent, are you?

Buchanon isn't even in this guy's rear-view mirror when it comes to the terrible destruction he's wreaked on our nation.

Margaret Thatcher said that she was unable to drag the UK out of the socialist ditch because of one thing: the "National Health Service." As long as the government had the people where the hair is crisp, they couldn't effectively fight it. And too many liked the "free" stuff, as always.
