I’ve never watched the movie Perfect Storm. Some of the actors are a little too androgynous for my liking. However, the idea of several factors occurring concurrently is easy to grasp as the central idea of the movie plot. The more dangerous factors that come to the fore, the worse the problem…in the movie…the Storm. O.K., O.K.
So what we’re looking at is a perfect Storm of Failure.
1) ISIS is running amok. Even our former (preceding ISIS) enemies in the Middle East are distancing themselves from these savages. They are getting worse and more atrocious every day.
2) Obama has no idea who these sinister SOBs are.
3) Obama has furnished all sorts of weapons to ISIS.
4) Obama has given away all the gains our troops made in the Middle East and doesn’t seem to realize what a screw-up he has made in Iraq.
5) Obama has fired some of our most experienced and capable generals, just when we probably need them most.
6) Obama surrounds himself with idiots…perhaps because he cannot distinguish idiocy. Shrinks tell their patients not to worry whether they are nuts because if they are worried about being nuts they probably aren’t…because crazy people never know they are personally whacko. Maybe crazy people cannot recognize insanity in others any better than in themselves. Perhaps this is also true of idiots. Maybe the same is true of functional idiots. Voila!
7) “I like cake!” Oooops. That’s another story, which, if I told now, would make perfect sense in this context..
8) The media is oblivious to all this.
9) Obama seems oblivious to all this.
10) Obama’s current press secretary is certainly oblivious to all this stuff.
11) The Colts are down 2-0 and I was already depressed.
12) Obama’s favorite sound is the Muslim morning call to prayer.
13) Obama has no idea about foreign policy.
14) Obama seems incapable of understanding anything.
15) Obama’s medical and Harvard grades and records are hidden from our view. Ergo…Obama may be a psychopathic functional idiot. We have no way of knowing. Both sets of records would reveal this…or rule him out as a sociopathic idiot.
16) Obama thinks he is a genius about everything.
17) He appears to know nothing. (Not counting his favorite mantra about inheriting the “terrorists from his predecessor”.)
18) We have no idea who Obama is.
19) I’m out of space…but could go on for a long time.
When these factors are considered (amidst myriad others) I think we are worse off than the guys in the movie.
Put on a life vest…or don’t. It probably won’t matter considering what may be coming.
