...from what's really important to him - the destruction of the United States from the inside. After all, people flying passenger jets into office buildings can't have all the fun, right? Baracky's going to show you how to destroy a nation without a single detonation...that's a measure of his greatness, you know, and he doesn't need anyone stepping on his toes while he's doing it.
Although he affects a president-of-the-world manner, I don’t think Barack Obama cares much about foreign affairs one way or the other. He has a huge transformative domestic agenda designed to leave this country looking much closer to the average Continental social democracy. His principal interest in the rest of the planet is that he doesn’t need some nutjob nuking Cleveland before he’s finished reducing it to a moribund socialist swamp.
And once we are attacked - inevitably, as we appear weaker and weaker - Obama will simply chalk it up to more "chickens coming home to roost", and lay the blame upon our own doorstep, as is his wont.
After all, how much will does a "moribund socialist swamp" have to fight back, anyway? Assuming their president has left them with the ability to do so....
I mean, really - if you were setting out to destroy the United States, what would you do differently than Obama has, anyway?
