The Accidental Emperor

In his address Sunday to the annual American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) conference, President Leads-From-Behind Obama said: "When the chips are down, I have Israel's back."

Nice, except when has Mr. Obama NOT disappointed an American ally? The list of disappointed U.S. allies is long (e.g., Egypt, President Mubarak, Honduras, Iran's Green Movement, Syria's opposition movement, etc. etc.), as is the list of enemies who chuckle heartily at Obama administration threats (so much for deterrence...).

And yet President Obama continues to peddle meaningless rhetoric, and many continue to be fooled. Why?

As Victor Volsky wrote last year in "Obama, The Accidental President":

Once upon a time there lived an emperor. One day two crafty weavers turned up at the palace and offered to make a new suit of clothes for the ruler -- clothes so marvelous that they would be invisible to those unfit for their positions, stupid or incompetent. And so when the emperor stepped out to show off his brand-new attire, the courtiers, fearful of being found out and ridiculed, would not admit to themselves the truth of what their eyes were telling them. Until an innocent child in the crowd of onlookers cried out, "He isn't wearing anything at all!", and the spell was broken.

Hans Christian Andersen did not indicate whether the weavers' names were David Axelrod and David Plouffe, but the similarity is striking. The two Davids brilliantly succeeded in packaging and selling to the country an unknown tyro from Chicago without a past or any visible qualifications other than imposing looks, a resonant voice and an ability to use the teleprompter. Like the weavers in the great Danish writer's fairy-tale, the Obama handlers insulated their candidate against criticism by preemptively warning that any doubt as to his fitness for office was proof positive of mean-spiritedness and racism. And the liberal crowd swallowed the bait hook, line and sinker.

The famous Occam's razor principle states that the simplest explanation is the most plausible one. Applying it to dispel the fog of propaganda, it becomes glaringly obvious that Obama is an accidental president, a lazy and indecisive incompetent devoid of any ability or desire to perform the job to which he was elected by a gullible majority, who loves the perks but hates the duties of his office; who loves to play but hates to work. Have a good look at the man occupying the White House: what you see is what you get. The Emperor has no clothes.

Which begs the question: What has our accidental emperor done to date that would make any (sane) leader put his nation's survival in such incompetent hands?
