GOOD QUESTION: What Is Obama Thinking About All Day?

Written by William Pauwels on September 9, 2014

We become what we think about most of the time.  What is Obama thinking about?

It seems incomprehensible that a man could be given the opportunity of the century ― to contribute to the betterment of mankind – and yet devote the majority of his time and psychic energy to traveling around on Air Force One, to giving two-bit speeches at Democrat fundraisers, to extravagant vacationing, to playing innumerable rounds of golf, to fabricating excuses for his lack of effective performance, to blaming Congress for his lack of accomplishment, and to leading from behind (which really means not leading at all).

What are Obama’s priorities? What is he thinking about most of the time? Why isn’t he on the job, in his office, in the Situation Room, meeting with the nation’s experts, providing genuine leadership. Why isn’t he bringing together the best minds to effect successful strategies?

America is in a drip-by-drip, relentless, downward decline; and the President seems impervious to what has happened during the past six years of his presidency. The prosperity of any nation is dependent on the collective productivity of individuals – on their cumulative effort – on their combined accomplishments. Every freshman business student knows this. Yet, our President’s hand-out ideology encourage sloth – taking rather than giving – accumulating entitlements rather than contributing to the nation’s well-being.

Obama has surrounded himself with like-minded, quasi-Fabian-socialistic schoolboys with little or no understanding of how to restore the American economy to its former glory days.  He has no commitment to solving the geopolitical problems surrounding us. Clearly, he is unwilling to stay on the job, in his office, in the Situation Room, in conference with proven experts, etc.

Success in life depends on OPM (Other People’s Money) – OPE (Other People’s Experience) – Goal Setting – Focus – Persistence – and Self-Control. Obama gets low scores in most of these critical areas.

What in Heaven’s name is he thinking about all day long? Why is Obama squandering his incredible opportunity – to make a strategic difference – to end the downward slide of American society, culture and economy – and to lead the free world in the defeat of evil doers and power mongers. 

In God we must trust . . . but we must always do our part – to secure and promote the truth and a better way – to protect our freedom and interests – and to defend the Judeo-Christian American-Way.
