Supporters of President Obama have set a very low bar for presidential performance. They keep justifying his time spent traveling for campaign speeches, photo ops and fundraising. While he is traveling, he is getting briefings and is capable of talking with world leaders. And that is the problem. He isn't doing the work to develop strategies, doctrines and policies to get ahead of the crises facing him.
A year ago he knew that kids were coming to our southern border. Even without chemical weapons, thousands of people are being slaughtered in Syria. A terrorist state has been created within Iraq. Russia is continuing to cause chaos in Ukraine. We have no status of agreement in Afghanistan. The VA hospitals still don't have a solution. And Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi has sat for months in a Mexican prison.
Getting reports on the status of chaos, making speeches based on hope, and demonizing the people who are charged to help you won't develop doctrines, strategies and then the policies and laws needed to fix or avoid the problems. He should be working day and night with his top staffers and Cabinet heads, addressing new problems and re-working the strategies that haven't been effective. Instead, he learns about or avoids problems until the media puts the issue on the front page. He's totally reactive. No leadership. He's overwhelmed by the responsibilities of the office.
Obama supporters should be embarrassed. Speak up and save our country.
