ANALYSIS/OPINION:

According to Jeffrey T. Kuhner, President Obama “will lead the United States to defeat, disgrace and ruin” (“The Obama doctrine,” Opinion Web, Saturday). This news is hardly surprising, given that Americans were forewarned during the presidential campaign of Mr. Obama’s radical political agenda.

Yet the Democrats and their media sympathizers turned a blind eye to the facts — his unsavory alliances with the likes of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright Jr. and William Ayers — so as to convince voters that he was the “messiah.” Did it not matter to the American people that he spent 20 years at a church that is notorious for its anti-American and anti-Semitic vitriol?

Mr. Kuhner is correct about human rights in China. The president is more concerned about offending Beijing than addressing China’s persecution of Christians and political dissidents. That should be a matter of paramount concern to the White House, but it isn’t. In Iran, the democratic reform movement following the election of a political tyrant was met with a mere sigh. This is because, as Mr. Kuhner puts it, “the Obama administration is signaling it can live with an Iranian bomb.”

“If it continues to be pursued,” Mr. Kuhner says, the Obama doctrine “will mark the decline and fall of the United States as the world’s superpower.” It is said that elections have consequences. That is indeed the case.
