Obama to America: Drop Dead

The president took time out from his busy schedule of having no strategy for Afghanistan to go to the United Nations and blather on incessantly while luxuriating in moral equivalency as he sat mere feet from the Iranian terrorist Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and the Libyan terrorist Moammar Khadafi.

His speech yesterday was a riot of Wilsonian collective action pipe-dreams and Carteresque naivete. Of course, the result of Woodrow Wilson’s "can’t we all just get along" idealism was World War II and 100 million people slaughtered. And the result of Jimmy "My Name is Earl" Carter’s childlike innocence was Americans taken hostage in Iran and Soviet troops marching through Afghanistan.

Our enemies smell a president’s weakness from miles away. And they certainly all saw the Bama coming.

They must have loved one particular thing he said in his address yesterday. The Bama slipped it in, and it largely went unnoticed. But it is the most profoundly disturbing thing I think I’ve heard from this president, or frankly, any president:

"In an era where our destiny is shared, power is no longer a zero-sum game," he began. And then the money line: "No one nation can or should try to dominate another nation. No world order that elevates one nation or group of people over another will succeed….That is the future America wants."

Those words should make your blood run cold.

What he is saying is not "what America wants" but what HE wants: America taken down a notch or two. Brought low. Humbled. No longer the world’s superpower. Turned into just another state. Made to be one of many. Equalized with Myanmar and Chad.

No longer unique. No longer special.

No longer superpower-ful.

Destroying America’s standing in the world, along with our exceptional power and influence: it’s hard not to believe that this is his deliberate objective when you hear him say exactly that. Particularly since it’s not the first time he’s said it: he said the EXACT same thing when he was in Europe earlier this year. It’s a pattern for him, and the pattern is belief.

For the Bama, the United States is the villian. We’ve created most of the world’s problems with our greed and our bullying. So now, we need to make it up to the world by downgrading ourselves to the level of Bangladesh.

According to the Bama and his Alinsky-esque band of radicals, American exceptionalism is so 20th century. It’s so uncool. It’s not worth preserving, because we’re not worthy of it.

Yesterday, he gave the rest of us our marching orders: Because he won’t fight for America’s exceptional strength and values and history and greatness and goodness, we must.
