9781941069226-stones cover copyLast night watching the Republican Debate in New Hampshire I was appalled by the lack of understanding the candidates and the political pundits have of President Obama’s Presidency. If any candidate really believes the dire position this nation is now in is because of the President’s inexperience or his lack of leadership qualities, they should not be considered as a serious candidate and political talking heads who hold those beliefs should go back to their political science course 101 for some in-depth study. Of all the people on the stage or commenting in spin rooms only Senator Marko Rubio has the right answer.

President Obama does know exactly what he is doing. He is transforming America into a socialist economy. Not through mistakes and his lack of experience but because of his deeply held ideological beliefs. He does not have leadership qualities and lacks managerial skills but since he is not interested in solving America’s problems or building our economy and military back to pre-Obama levels it doesn’t matter. He doesn’t need those qualities to destroy the nation he has sworn to protect. Senator Rubio was right on when he said repeatedly, “President Obama knows exactly what he is doing.” I am including some excerpts of essays I have written over the last three years to provide more clarity.

The president’s devotion to socialism and the teachings of Saul Alinsky, an American revolutionary, prevent him from working to solve important national and international issues. President Obama can only see issues as opportunities to be used to destroy his opposition. The destruction of the opposition clears the way for the building of a one-party government with an equal opportunity society where wealth is distributed by a centralized government, just like Alinsky preaches in his book, Rules for Radicals.

Following Alinsky’s guidance President Obama doesn’t care about being inconsistent. Recall his vote against raising the debt during President Bush’s tenure because he thought raising the debt ceiling was being unpatriotic. He doesn’t care about how the Affordable Care Act affects the people as long as it puts seven percent of the economy under government control. Nor does he worry about the number of people out of work, the insecure national borders, foreign affairs, nor the increasing cost of welfare.

All these issues bring more people under the care of the central government. To maintain the momentum of people coming under government care, he must keep spending beyond the nation’s income. An economic crisis will enable him to nationalize more of the economy. His plan won’t work in the long run but it will cause great damage to the nation and the American safe harbor for individual freedom, which is the hope and bedrock for a free people everywhere.

Many people, including many political scholars and sitting elected officials, often describe the President as inept, clueless, unengaged, and a poor leader. Yet President Obama has bested them in every conflict. He lurks in a cloud of disinterest and mind-numbing bumbling.”

But he does know what he is doing.

If you believe Obama’s lack of experience and leadership are the cause of our critical problems, you are wrong for Senator Rubio was right and his attackers on this issue are very wrong, dangerously wrong.

    Its not Obama’s lack of experience or leadership that’s the problem. it’s what he believes and a dysfunctional congress that seems to be neutered..
