He didn’t deliver but he sure divided the country along race and class lines. Media-Washing helped him get elected a second time but it won’t protect him from history. The economy is producing lower paying jobs which means more family problems because of longer hours outside the home to meet the bills. Longer workweeks are a marker of Obama’s economic failure which sent loads of middle class into the low class with more government benefits. Being poor is more popular but not by choice. Obama’s failed economically while he was bowing and scraping to his supposed betters in the Arab world. He’s become downright creepy.

We know the average net worth of families in the top 40 percent of income earners grew. The rich Liberals got richer. For all others average net worth shrank, declining 19 percent for the middle fifth. That would be the ex-middle class.

He knows what he didn’t do. He said in last years State of the Union address: “The cold, hard fact is that even in the midst of recovery, too many Americans are working more than ever just to get by – let alone get ahead. And too many still aren’t working at all,” A year later things are worse including, unexpectedly for us but not for him, racially.

Then there’s the surrender and the submission. He’s a pacifist. He received a peace prize for avoiding retaliation. But Force used for self-defense is a moral imperative, meaning it’s immoral to let Terrorists win. Morality requires a response to aggression. It requires striking back at Terrorists instead of going all cowardly and pulling out of Iraq and Afghanistan.

To engage in infinite behind-the-scenes “negotiations” that lead nowhere — is to surrender to brutality. The President should have responded agaisnt the Terrorists instead of whitewashing them. A leader doesn’t respond to murder merely by imposing sanctions. One cannot appeal to reason in dealing with those who reject it. Force is the only language intelligible to those who live by force. Instead Obama removed sanctions from Cuba. .
