Derelict: (‘derəˌlikt/) neglectful of duty, delinquent; a person guilty of neglect of duty; a bum. SYNONYM-see Obama, Barack.
A thought experiment can be useful to explain why America is in a mess.
Let’s take Barack Obama at his word — a stretch certainly for anyone who would lie about his own mother’s death to score partisan points will lie about…well, anything. But let’s put the most positive spin on what President Obama has been conveying to his fellow Americans. One can try to be optimistic even in these perilous times — it is one of the great traits of being American.
Barack Obama and those who serve at his whim have declared that he knew nothing about the IRS witch-hunt of Republicans, spying by the NSA on Americans and foreign leaders, Fast and Furious, ObamaCare website problems, that he actually set red lines regarding Syria (though he denied it later), security problems at the Benghazi consulate, and spying on the Associated Press. When asked, Obama has asserted that he learned about all these problems only after reading about them in the media. Who knew our presidents would model themselves after Sergeant Schultz on the old Hogan Heroes television series (Obama has admitted he watched a lot of television when he was younger — and some with reason believe he still does).
