ANALYSIS/OPINION:

President Obama in not a failure. To the contrary, he has been enormously successful.

By examining his political views before becoming president, based on past associations and the anti-capitalist mythology propagated in sermons at his longtime church, it is likely that altering the disparity between the productive class and the have-nots in our society and promoting societal change “we can believe in” are high on his agenda - regardless of campaign rhetoric.

Since it is much easier to shrink the aforementioned disparity by bringing down the productive class rather than trying to lift those mired at the bottom (something trillions of dollars worth of “investment” over decades has failed miserably to do), what we are witnessing is almost certainly by design.

Unimaginable, you say? Naysayers should examine Obamacare: It is intended that folks now able to obtain medical care only from clinics accepting Medicaid or at the emergency room should henceforth enjoy the same experience as the insured. As the law does nothing to create thousands of new doctors or MRI machines, the only mechanism by which this can happen is the shuffling of resources and the creation of new policies for care such that the end result will be the degradation in health care for those accustomed to the old way.

This same planned metamorphosis is taking place throughout the economy and society. Yes, the paradigms are changing. I’m still wondering how so many otherwise intelligent people could have been deceived into thinking that making everyone who signs the front of a paycheck feel scared and uncertain will result in growth and prosperity. Clearly it cannot and will not.
