“I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction,” wrote Barack Obama in his 2006 Audacity of Hope. At the time, Obama was a senator from Illinois and apparently unconcerned he may one day be forced to act on the somewhat bizarre statement. But presidential elections tend to change things and before the United Nations on Tuesday, Obama stated rather pointedly that he is a Christian, almost as though concerned some in the American audience especially might be unsure.
For Obama has held true to his pledge of standing with Muslims, at least in so far as he has directed the authority of the United States to quietly assist Islamist forces in the takeover of nations throughout the Middle East. The Arab Spring around which the president has manufactured his laughable reputation as a fearless purveyor of democracy and freedom is really all about the rapid spread of Muslim theocracies where there had once been dictators, some even allied to the United States.
George Bush had fought what he knew would be the monstrous social orders of Sharia. But Obama made the production of such states a centerpiece of his Administration’s foreign policy, claiming “… the world has been captivated by the transformation that has taken place, and the United States has supported the forces of change.” (1) Nonsense, of course. But as long as the White House could frame the message which the MSM would bring to the public, Barack could be a hero to millions for bringing the “universal values” of “self-determination” to the Middle East.
But since the little unpleasantness of the past weeks, Barack has found it necessary to sprint from Middle Eastern friends, even those he had so graciously set up as the brand new rulers of nations. For Obama can’t afford the “verbal slips” which inevitably present themselves when Islamists begin pressing the advantages they know the global left will immediately cede to anyone wearing a robe large enough to conceal plastic explosive.
For example, demands by new Egyptian president Muhammed Morsi that free speech be revoked are not playing well with American voters who believe by a 57% margin that Muslims planned the recent attacks and murders, making Islam itself, not a movie responsible for the death of Ambassador Stevens and 3 others. As a result, Obama had to cancel his highly publicized meeting with Morsi lest the Egyptian ruler provide more ammunition to the Romney camp. (2)
It all boils down to Barack Obama having to renounce the carefully nurtured spoils of Arab Spring. Obama had planned and schemed, leading from behind as the United States sat by while Islamist forces devoured even American allies. Nations were overthrown and the grotesque religion of Islam imposed on millions all because Barack Obama wanted to claim credit for the new spirit of hope and change in the Middle East!
Barack had no doubt envisioned grateful inhabitants—rulers and ruled alike—expressing undying gratitude through the American media for his having heard their pleas for democracy and freedom. It would have played so very well during the months before the election.
But now, Obama can use none of it. Once thought to be of great political advantage, the president’s foray into foreign policy has become an unspeakable disaster. All that work, all those nations overthrown, all the killings, beheadings, betrayals, crooked elections and Obama can’t enjoy any of it!
Oh well, at least no harm was done, was it Barack!
