Critique of Barack Obama – UK Style

Barack Obama

Barack Obama

I’m tough on Obama.  I don’t think he likes what America is.  I think that he wants a dramatically more redistributionist state than we have now.

And I don’t think that he has any meaningful experience that would lend itself to being President of these United States of America.

Military and Foreign Policy

So how do people who do more important things than blog think of Mr. Obama?

President Obama has been judged to be ‘chronically incapable’ of conducting a coherent military strategy and ‘has no sense of what he wants to do in the world’, according to Oxford University professor, Sir Hew Strachan – one of the UK’s most respected and senior military advisers.

The damning verdict from a governmental insider of the United States’ closest military ally comes days after the president was heavily criticized by his own former Defense Secretary Robert Gates who said that Obama was indecisive and lacked any passion for his nation’s armed forces.

‘If anything it’s gone backwards instead of forwards, Obama seems to be almost chronically incapable of doing this,’ said Strachan.

‘Bush may have had totally fanciful political objectives in terms of trying to fight a global War on Terror, which was inherently astrategic, but at least he had a clear sense of what he wanted to do in the world.

‘Obama has no sense of what he wants to do in the world,’ he said according to the Daily Beast.

  2. The President’s policies of doing whatever it takes to increase his political power obviously succeeded with his reelection and the implementation of his major programs like ObamaCare, foreign policy appeasement, and politicization of the regulatory bureaucracy..

    The failures in these policies have hurt the country and President Obama politically. He has managed to limit his political damage so far by doing what he does best, manipulating the press and the public. After 5 years less and less people bother to listen to his speeches. He still has most of the press pulling for him and that may be enough.

    • The failures in these policies have hurt the country and President Obama politically. He has managed to limit his political damage so far by doing what he does best, manipulating the press and the public.

      Don’t forget that even as his policies are failing and his handling of issues is polling poorly, he is as popular individually as ever.

  3. Pino,

    I know people who voted for Obama. They hate ObamaCare, they know the bad economy is his, yet you are right they do not seem hostile to him personally. These are mostly people who really hated Bush. I believe that since he is the anti Bush in so many ways, that lingering hatred of Bush is why they disassociate Obama from his record.

    They still will not be listening to his SOTUS. Their apathy is apparent.
