Obama: The World Is Complex Or Something
Mr. Obama apparently missed where his spokesweasel, Josh Earnest, said that Obama has made the world more tranquil. Obama is pretty depressing, according to the AP
After President Barack Obama breathlessly addressed four different foreign-policy issues during a 10-minute statement, he summed up the state of a crisis-filled world in one sentence.
“We live in a complex world and at a challenging time,” Obama said.
Obama touched on the laundry list of global flashpoints situations during a statement from the White House on Wednesday – the disputed elections in Afghanistan, the negotiations on Iran’s nuclear program, the Israeli-Palestinian crisis, and, finally, the conflict in Ukraine.
We do live in a complex world. If only we had a President who was up to the job.
“None of these challenges lend themselves to quick or easy solutions, but all of them require American leadership,” Obama said. “I’m confident if we stay patient and determined that we will, in fact, meet these challenges.”
Yes, they do require American leadership. Hence the reason Obama hits the campaign trail and the golf course when something occurs. Truly great leaders don’t make excuses, they don’t Blamestorm, they don’t yammer constantly about “I”. They lead. They get things done. They get heavily involved. The job, and what’s happening in it, is entirely too complex for Mr. Obama. Joe Biden was exactly right, the White House does not lend itself to on the job training. That said, the world is only as complex as one makes it, and Obama turns easy issues into complex ones, because he’s in over his head, even after 5+ years on the job.
