What Will Obama Do, or Fail to Do, Next?

Well, you can't say that, domestically, President Obama doesn't have ambition; in less than five months, he's sought to heavily regulate or take over the financial sector and two of three of the country's automobile manufacturers and he's largely succeeded. The Speaker of the House seems to be no more than a botoxed lapdog and the Senate Majority Leader a lobotomized Obamadrone. The President and the Democrat Members of Congress resemble the Borg, all but muttering "resistance is futile" and urging voluntary absorption.

The Obamanation has truly eclipsed Orwellianism. Even FDR would blush at his naked power grabs.

On the other hand, his foreign policy seems to consist of "speak apologetically for ever having used the Big Stick" with pledges to reduce the the size of said stick. Teddy Roosevelt he certainly isn't.

In short, the Obama administration's answer to domestic problems is "control it". Their answer to foreign problems (such as the sham "election" in Iran) seems to be to "ignore it"- they can't even bring themselves to denounce, in no uncertain terms, the Iranian Thugocracy's threats of violence against Iranian protesters or to forcefully and vociferously support the Iranian people's quest for the very ideals on which Obama ran for President - "Hope and Change". If there is a better example of blatant hypocrisy, I'd like to see it, and from the way things are going, I probably will.

Had someone told me 12-18 months ago that we would be at this place at this time, I would have called them paranoid, or worse.

I feel like I'm living in the "Twilight Zone".
