The President Doubles Down, Again!

The President, as is his wont, has doubled down on Sgt. Bergdahl. The President, however, has a problem, a majority of Americans have, or are losing confidence in him and his ability to speak the truth. What he has to say is quickly becoming irrelevant to an overwhelming majority. The halcyon days of 2009 have vanished. Whatever the President has to say is now colored by the fact that nearly 60% of Americans have arrived at a negative view of the President. The moral authority off the office has been squandered to the Gods of ideological politics, regulation, appeasement and outright lies.

When disapproval approaches or is at 60% that is about as far as you can go given current demographics and political self-identification. We celebrate 54% election victories as landslides: what does 60% mean?

The President offers no apologies, except to Diane Feinstein. The President, as he often does, has created his own little political corner. Once again, Susan Rice appears, Dunce Cap in hand. Forget the tin ear: make it cast iron or better yet carbon steel. No amount of input penetrates the Obama bubble, not the nod to Islam in the Rose Garden, not the current state of the evidence against Bergdahl. Nothing penetrates the Obama bubble of narcissism and ideology.

Leader Reid, predictably defends the Bergdahl decision, his caucus, however, is inching away. You can say this for Harry Reid, he’s reliable, maybe a bit on the crazy side of life, but reliable. The problem is judgment as video clip shows Reid standing to the podium and asking, “What difference does it make”; channeling Hillary for yet another cringe worthy moment.

The short form analysis of how Democrats feel about the latest ham handed handling of the prisoner release is simple; if Chuck Schumer does not show up with Leader Reid in full view of the cameras; Houston we have a problem!

Hillary’s take is quickly becoming a mandatory point of comment for the MSM; she was against the Bergdahl release before she was for it. Could it be that the” Ready For Hillary” movement can only be stopped by one force; Hillary! Not hard to imagine Hillary shaking her head thinking; “This guy (Obama) is killing me.” But then again, what difference does it make?

    President Obama in 2008 promised to end divisiveness by bringing us together. Instead he decided to end it by tactics he obviously learnt while in the Illinois legislature of strong arming his views on everyone. And as long as he can get away with passing legislation by fiat he could care less what damage it does to the party. Landreaux wrote “What he has to say is quickly becoming irrelevant to an overwhelming majority.” It’s just the opposite….what the overwhelming majority thinks is becoming irrelevant to the President.

    Landreaux also writes that “Nothing penetrates the Obama bubble of narcissism and ideology.”
    The politics of the left is narcissistic. How many times have we seen the President look seriously into the camera and say “I’m as angry as you are.” concerning the latest scandal or screw up in the administration? This is something every call center operator dealing with angry clients is taught to do in order to dampen your response. How many times have we heard the President say ” The people who perpetrated this hideous crime will be punished.” but they never do.

    It will be curious to see exactly how much campaign help the Clintons accept from the President after he killed Mrs. Clintons chances at the nomination in 2008 and with Benghazi now in 2016.

    Lastly in regard to the Bergdahl deal even Chris Matthews had something negative to say about it. And when you lose the tingle down Chris Matthews leg you are in trouble.But then again the motto of the administration is “What difference does it make?”

    Additional ideas in regard to the narcissism of the administration the President takes credit for things others have done and blames others for mistakes during his tenure.

    Our allies don’t trust us and our enemies don’t fear us.

    As Landreaux would say “Really?”
