You can’t blame Obama for spending so much time golfing even as Ebola and ISIS threaten to spin out of control. He needs to rest up, because after the midterms, he is going to be very busy.
That’s when he will have nothing left to lose, unless Republicans acquire enough spine to impeach him for incompetence, abuse of power, corruption, and/or treason. Among the brown clots that have been held back, but will soon be hitting the fan:
Obama: Waiting Will Make Immigration Executive Action ‘More Sustainable’
President Barack Obama says he’s postponing executive action on immigration until after November’s elections because it would be “more sustainable” then.
Obamacare Website Won’t Reveal Insurance Costs for 2015 Until After Election
Those planning to purchase health insurance on the Obamacare exchange will soon find out how much rates have increased — after the Nov. 4 election.
ObamaCare Chaos: Insurance Cancellations Delayed Until After the Election
The Administration is pushing another ObamaCare delay on Americans until after the 2014 election in an obvious effort to conceal the fact that millions more are about to lose their insurance.
The new plan cancellations will be sent out after the elections! The delay has been made unilaterally by the Administration because it involves millions of people who are about to lose their insurance that they hoped to keep but which Obama has determined is inferior.
Obama Waiting for Midterm to Name Attorney General
President Barack Obama does not plan to announce his choice for attorney general before the November elections, shielding the nomination from the midterm election politics while setting up a potential year-end showdown with the lame duck Senate.
Army Won’t Release Bergdahl Findings Until Midterms
The Army has completed its investigation into Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl’s abandonment of his Afghan post but will not release the report until after the midterm elections lest it embarrass the Obama administration.
We’ll Tell You How Dangerous Ebola Is After the Election
Okay, that last title isn’t quite on the level. The piece is well worth reading though.
In short, we will be hit with: amnesty for millions of Third World peasants who are in the country illegally, which will increase the welfare burden and likely set off a massive Third World invasion even as Ebola spreads; outrageous new ObamaCare costs after we were led to believe we would pay less for healthcare; cancelation of insurance plans we were promised repeatedly we could keep; an Attorney General if possible even more ideologically demented and openly hostile to the majority of the US population than Eric Holder; and confirmation that the cringing sad sack Obama traded five top terrorist commanders for was at the very best a deserter and possibly a deliberate defector to the Taliban who will nonetheless not be persecuted for treason.
After the midterms, stalling tactics may come to an end regarding an admission that outlandishly expensive airstrikes mostly on low-value targets will not defeat ISIS without the ground troops Obama has refused to deploy. At that point the Audacity of Hope may degenerate into arrogance sufficient for him to admit that he is fine with terrorist maniacs taking over a country that thousands of Americans recently died to liberate.
No doubt there will be more. He has a pen and a phone, after all. Who knows what final kicks to the teeth Obama will deliver in his final 2 years? Slavery reparations? Amnesty for all federal drug criminals? Depression-inducing carbon restrictions? Forgiveness of all student loans? A guaranteed living wage that would obviate any need to work? Extra Supreme Court slots for Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn? As we have been learning for years, anything is possible with this character — except of course responsible, competent, or even benevolent leadership.
Dealing with the fallout from a country that may find itself pushed to the verge of revolt will require that Obama be rested and at his best — unless he chooses to deal with the public’s rage the way he has dealt with other crises: by shrugging it off and hitting the links.
Soon he won’t have to pretend to care.
