After five years on the job, President Obama is tired of it. But that makes him more, not less, dangerous to the republic.
Because instead of doing the hard work of legislating, of enacting policy through the arduous process intended by the founders, Obama will sit back for the next three years and take the easy route of ruling by fiat, AKA executive action.
Meanwhile, his disengagement from the world has already produced chaos in places like Syria, Iraq and Libya – Egypt would be on the list too if the generals there hadn’t taken matters into their own hands – and brand new abodes in these and other places for al Qaeda to make a fresh start. And Iran will have its nuclear weapon.
That’s the message in my latest article for Reuters. From the piece.
President Barack Obama is out of gas. Pooped out. Gone fishing. Or rather, golfing. He’s just not that into it anymore. The republic is safe from any further vast left-wing legislative prescriptions for our ills.
But Obama’s increasing job fatigue is, paradoxically, cause for serious concern. While he sits back, aides in the White House and in the agencies are busy enacting a stealth agenda of rules and regulations. And on the world stage, Washington’s withdrawal threatens national security.
I hope you have a moment to take a look.
