Greatest Mistake of Obama: Pro-Muslim Campaigner vs. President/Leader

obama karThe greatest mistake of the Obama Administration is Obama’s unwillingness to shift from pre-election political mode to Chief Executive/Commander-in-Chief management/leadership mode – following his success at the poles.

America desperately needs a President  . . . and we haven’t had one for the past 4-½ years.  Everything is politics with Obama. Even in his second term, he is compelled by political considerations and effects.  He has no understanding of or commitment to his Executive/Commander-in-Chief management/leadership responsibilities. 

Obama is an articulate but shallow leader – clinging to 19th century Marxist/Socialist/Leftist social, economic and governance schoolbook concepts that have never worked and have produced disasters wherever they have been tried.

The President has surrounded himself with Leftist schoolboys of the same ilk, who are apparently running the administration while Obama flies around on Air Force One, cheerleading, conducting fundraisers, vacationing, playing golf and basketball, etc.

For example, true to his radical Leftist roots, Obama refuses to face up to the reality that we are at war with radical Islam and the terrorists that it has spawned. He has failed to launch and sustain an all-out war against these enemies. Instead of taking the war to them, which was President Bush’s successful strategy, Obama is reverting to a defensive, police action, reactive approach – the same strategy that preceded 9/11/2001. He has even backed off from his effective use of drones – a political action in response to his left wing Democrat critics.
