WSJ's Hemminger: 'Obama's Credibility Is Melting'Topics: Political News and commentaries
In his 'Wonderland' column this week at the WSJ, Daniel Hemminger writes that both here and abroad, Barack Obama's partners are coming to the conclusion that they cannot trust him. While the specifics may be new to some, the fact that Obama's credibility (that he never deserved since it was based on nothing more than stagecraft and rhetoric - never on actual performance or ability) is in meltdown certainly shouldn't be a revelation to anyone.
The collapse of ObamaCare is the tip of the iceberg for the magical Obama presidency.Read the whole thing ...
From the moment he emerged in the public eye with his 2004 speech at the Democratic Convention and through his astonishing defeat of the Clintons in 2008, Barack Obama's calling card has been credibility. He speaks, and enough of the world believes to keep his presidency afloat. Or used to.
All of a sudden, from Washington to Riyadh, Barack Obama's credibility is melting.
Amid the predictable collapse the past week of HealthCare.gov's too-complex technology, not enough notice was given to Sen. Marco Rubio's statement that the chances for success on immigration reform are about dead. Why? Because, said Sen. Rubio, there is "a lack of trust" in the president's commitments.
[...] Bluntly, Mr. Obama's partners are concluding that they cannot do business with him. They don't trust him. Whether it's the Saudis, the Syrian rebels, the French, the Iraqis, the unpivoted Asians or the congressional Republicans, they've all had their fill of coming up on the short end with so mercurial a U.S. president. And when that happens, the world's important business doesn't get done. It sits in a dangerous and volatile vacuum. ...
Those of us that had already figured out in 2008 just who and what Obama really was and where we would be heading under an Obama presidency can derive no pleasure for being proven we were right all along, given America's decline resulting from his "transformation" agenda and the divisiveness we are experiencing. However, it's good to know that the rest of the world has finally begun to wake up to the truth of who and what Barack Obama really is.
