Our President Fiddling While America Burns

416px-Quo_Vadis_posterDavid Limbaugh has written persuasively that Barack Obama is a malignant narcissist.  When we see the “president-in-name-only” preening in the mirror, refusing to take any responsibility for anything, and constantly blaming everyone else for each and every failure, the diagnosis sticks.   When the fawning media worship at his throne, the dictator receives homage, then denigrates the brown-nosers. When one or two break ranks, he threatens them.

Dinesh D’Souza, in print and in his documentary, rightly characterizes Barry Soetoro (BS) as an operative, groomed by subversives, then assigned the mission to radically and fundamentally change America based on the assumptions America is and was an evil colonial power, an empire racist to the core, one worthy of punishment for crimes against the have-nots.

Frank Gaffney, David Horowitz and Robert Spencer (to name only a few) have documented the extensive ties between BS and Islamic radicals, communists at home and abroad, and other assorted anti-American radicals eager to see the end of our republic.

Last Sunday, on Fox, in an interview with Chris Wallace, former governor and presidential candidate Mitt Romney finally took the gloves off and called it like it is, referring to BS as “Nero fiddling while America burns.”

The reference is apt.  Nero murdered Christians, and BS is no friend of believers anywhere.   David Barton at Wallbuilders.com, the nation’s historian, has characterized BS as the most biblically hostile president ever.  BS’s open hostility toward Israel is another red flag.  Nero was responsible for setting Rome on fire, then blaming Christians, all in an effort to destroy the followers of the Great Liberator. 

Few have ventured so far as to classify Obama as outright evil, but there can be no other conclusion given the evidence revealed these last five years.

He has always supported every form of abortion, even the slaughter of full term babies and those who survive abortion, all with public financing of course.

BS holds our Constitution and the separation of powers in complete disdain given his serial violations and his open contempt for the Supreme Court and Congress.

His tax and spend policies are obviously designed to crush our economy.

Cutting defense, insulting our military, unilateral nuclear disarmament, and coddling enemies reveal a traitor in the White House, an accusation fortified in view of recent traitors appointed to Cabinet posts.

And the continuous promotion of unlawful immigration and immorality forever cement BS as a loose cannon operating without any regard for the rule of law or the laws of nature.

Shall we mention his aggressive efforts to destroy traditional marriage by subverting the Defense of Marriage Act and promoting perversion in the military?  Shall we also mention his obvious efforts to attack and destroy religious liberty within the dictates of Obamacare, or the BS’rs outrageous assault on the God-given right of free men and women to possess and bear arms?

And what of this insanity: claiming authority to kill Americans on our soil with drones!

Nero is not only fiddling while America burns.  He is pouring gas on the fire, a fire that will consume him in the end.
