Obama’s Passive Aggressiveness

I don’t care what color it is, as long as it’s black or white.


It’s black Friday, and I have a few black thoughts on my mind.

President Obama sees things in black or white terms. It’s his way or the highway. He's right and you’re wrong. If his policies fail, it’s your fault, not his. If you don’t see things his way, you’re the enemy.

In some circles, this attitude is known as passive-aggressive behavior , defined as the indirect expression of hostility, such as procrastination, stubbornness, sullen or deliberate and repeated failure to accomplish tasks for which you are responsible.

Obama repeatedly blames Republicans for his failures in domestic and foreign policy. His number one enemy is the GOP, not ISIS. He stubbornly refuses to call ISIS Muslim terrorists or extremists.

Obama procrastinated for seven years before making a negative and unpopular political decision on the Keystone XL pipeline.

He stubbornly refuses to talk to or compromise with the loyal opposition, who like him, have the best interests of the nation in mind, about such key issues as modifying ObamaCare’s dysfunctional mandates; or listening to his military advisors, who he continuously overrules; or to critics who tell him that the practical health of the economy on the middle class is more important than the distant threat of climate change on the planet; or to a bipartisan majority who think a pause in admitting refugees to the United States is an important measure in protecting us against imported terrorism.

Instead, the President is obsessed with raising minorities to a majority status, with achieving equal outcomes for all in spite of differences in skill and accomplishments, with punishing the successful with higher taxes and more regulations; with peace, concessions and appeasements to one’s foreign adversaries at any price, with avoidance of war and withdrawal from foreign affairs no matter what the consequences, with blaming and apologizing for the world’s past and present problems on American capitalism and European colonialism . For President Obama, these are black and white issues, with no shades of gray, no room for neutral points of view.

Mr. President. You’re responsible for America’s economic growth and for our success in foreign affairs. You’re our leader. We don’t expect perfection, and we expect debate and dialogue. Please don’t white wash your failures on the backs of your domestic enemies. We want you to succeed.
