Obama: Busted
Bill Quick

Belmont Club » Under Incompetence

Both Clinton or Obama could easily fit the Elphinstone mode; although to be fair Elphinstone in his youth actually commanded a unit at Waterloo whereas neither Clinton and Obama can point to a similar experience.  One wonders what they actually do. Neither writes their own books. By contrast, Winston Churchill not only wrote his own book, he was also largely responsible for winning the Second World War. They don’t seem to have any tangible skill.  And yet … Obama and Hillary are experts in the modern profession of being famous, which requires no other skill than being famous. Like Kim Kardashian, they’re greatest claim to fame is fame itself. There it begins. And there it ends.

Well, keep in mind that Obama exiled the bust of Winston Churchill from the Oval Office.

Obviously he couldn’t bear to look at it every day, and the implicit comparison (not to his benefit) that it represented.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. One wonders what they actually do.

    Simple: They get elected, or appointed – and they govern…badly, and only when and where absolutely necessary – and they use various deceptions, and the willing assistance of others of similar political “philosophy” or whom they are able to purchase or suborn in one way or another, to ravage the public treasury by various sorts of thieving – thereby becoming personally wealthy, and also purchasing the necessary votes or “favors”, through various “redistributions”, to remain in office – and they pursue various stratagems that will lead to the furtherance of all this by those who come after them…

    In short: They infest and victimize the Body Politic and the Electorate. It’s what they are – poisonous parasites, a politicized cancer that metastasizes within the nation – and it’s what they do.
