Experienced Patriots Needed

June 10, 2010 by  

Samuel Adams, known as the father of the American Revolution, once said, “If ever a time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin.”

He must have been looking at Barack Obama in a crystal ball when he said it, for Obama is the poster child for a “vain and aspiring” man.

While thousands of gallons of oil spews into the Gulf of Mexico each day, while the unemployment rate remains right at 10 percent, while the stock market drops, while Greece teeters on the edge of bankruptcy, while American soldiers die on foreign battlefields and while North and South Korea stand with knives at each others’ throats, Obama parties, vacations and golfs… and blames others for the troubles.

When he does address his subjects—the American people—he does it with an arrogant disdain developed from years in Ivy League schools and in the dining halls of some of the nation’s most famous leftists.

He’s been mostly “too busy” to deal with the Gulf oil leak, having made only three trips to the region in almost two months—two of those in the last two weeks and then only after Democrat operative James Carville ripped him for his lack of interest in the crisis. And for the longest time he was “too busy” to read Arizona’s new immigration law and meet with Arizona Governor Jan Brewer—he finally relented and granted her a brief audience—to discuss it, even though he found time to criticize it.

But he had time hold lavish White House parties with entertainers like Paul McCartney, Kelly Clarkson, George Lopez and Lionel Richie. He had plenty of time to vacation in Chicago—though he didn’t have time to visit Arlington National Cemetery on Memorial Day. Oh, and golf—there’s been plenty of time for golf.

The main stream media attribute Obama’s demeanor to an ability to detach himself emotionally and deal with problems using logic. Some have equated him to Star Trek’s Spock, an unemotional but brilliant Vulcan.

But Obama’s aloofness seems to stem more from arrogance; an attitude that he is dealing with people he considers his lessers. It comes across every time he goes off the teleprompter and answers a question or makes a comment. It is manifested in the look in his eyes, the cadence in his voice and—mostly—the tilt of his head.

November 2012 can’t come soon enough. Perhaps until then we’ll have enough experienced patriots in office to stave off America’s ruin.
