The US Republic is a remarkable State of Being, true to the founding Father’s American’s have established a Democracy, despite the likes of Obama. Yet the loss of responsibility to vote for an adult, shows that even incompetence in a President is not enough reason for the people to go to the polls. That a candidate is Mormon, is more cause not to vote – The Constitution of the United States in Article VI, Section 3 (National Debts) clearly states, “but no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.” So much for Conservatives who are always decrying their Constitution. Saying their literal interpretation of the Constitution is a ‘standard belief’ of their political party.
The Presidency of the US centers around five separate put linked responsibilities or rather jobs. Most modern Presidents and attempted to fulfill two. Some Presidents have been forced to fulfill specific responsibilities. They are:
COMMANDER IN CHIEF – CHIEF EXECUTIVE – HEAD OF STATE
CHIEF LAW ENFORCER – HEAD OF THEIR PARTY
Each of these roles is as important as the rest. Yet we have an American President fulfilling ONE – Head of His Party. The sad reality is the American Public has little knowledge of their Presidents responsibilities and are therefore unable to determine the job he is doing. Having a job description is the first way to qualify a person for that job or to reconsider him during his review to retain that job. If one has an employee who fulfills only part of his job he would be dismissed. Being elected due to one’s race and not their experience or ability leads to conflicting consequences.
As Commander-in-Chief of America ( Article II, Section 2,  The President shall be Commander in Chiel of the Army and Navy of the United States,’) one is responsible for protecting America and the World from Tyrant’s as well as injustice. Not performing ceremonial roles and ignoring those serving. A President must have a policy that he is committed to and implements. As in business a leader establishes a strategy and then delegates its implementation. Being Commander-in-Chief requires a global perspective of peace and freedom that is protected by decisive awareness and the ability to decide right from wrong. Obama has failed to perceive the need to protect all of us from these issues as he has wandered through his eight years of leaderless endeavors. Perhaps he should be told that the US has freed more people on earth in 100 years than at any other time in the history of mankind. Fed more people in 70 years than at any other time in the history of mankind. Help educate and medically care for more people in 200 years than at any other time in the history of mankind. As Churchill said, “the Americans may not get it right at first, put they do in the end”.
As Chief Executive, Obama has wasted every opportunity to lead by compromise and implementing a management style that others would follow. Failure to generate budgets of value has forced the Congress to operate the government by Continuous Resolutions. That has created bad management and corrupt practices that continue unabated. His cabinet has poorly run their departments from Veteran’s Affairs to the Treasury, that manages the IRS. All leading to major political embarrassment and hardship. While having good intentions upon election Obama had no knowledge of executive leadership. Leadership in Government has one thing in common with leadership in business, solving problems everyday. To do so a good executive learns how to delegate and how to compromise. Both actions Obama has failed at miserably.
One of the most engaging roles as the President is Head of State. State Visits of the worlds Heads of States can develop personal relationships. State visits show the world the countries America chooses as allies and trading partners. Again, Obama has ignored this valuable aspect of his Presidency. Obama has failed to even engage in this job to secure global awareness of America’s role as a friend to others. Obama has not developed any relationships that would prove indispensable when global problems arise. In short, Obama has no friends, matter in point Israel. Not only is Israel the only Democracy in the Middle East but their people constitute one of his parties most important constituents. Both he has ignored and insulted as the Head of State and as the President.
Article II, Section 3. “he shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed” establishes the responsibility as Chief Law Enforcer for the President. Through his Attorney General the President is to up hold the laws of the land, not to ignore or pick and choose what laws are to be enforced. Attorney General Eric Holder has been abysmal at his job, an obvious reflection of his President. Obama has taken it upon himself on several occasions to make statements about specific instances that he perceived as wrong. Made judgment calls that were wrong and then ignored the fact he created racial disparity and anger in doing so. While at the same time ignoring Federal Laws regarding Immigration for political reasons, tax laws that allowed his employees to target and abuse his citizens. Ignored veteran assisted laws, in doing so allowed the abuse and failed care of American Military Heroes. The failure to charge, prosecute and convict individuals in the financial industry for obvious fraud in the near collapse of the global banking system due to mortgage-backed securities sales, trading and manipulation. How the electorate could possibly not see his incompetence in this job and still have voted for him, is a reflection of an electorate that is more persuaded by a President’s rhetoric and self-gratification, than his job performance.
Ah, but there is a job Obama has performed endlessly. He has excelled at and pursued with mad abandonment. Obama as the Head of His Party has traveled more miles (more than for all the other roles he should fulfill combined) to raise hundreds of millions of campaign dollars for himself and party members he endorses. Obama has spent more political capital traveling in Air Force One with members of his party than solving other problems that require his attention. He shares the company of tax evaders, racial bigots (Ferguson, Missouri is over 70% African American) and inept politicians. All who have self-serving agendas that do not solve any problems, but exacerbate problems to maintain their own positions of power.
It is no wonder that Obama’s popularity has floundered. Obama’s only other particular interest as President is self-gratification by spending an immense amount of time in personal pursuits (like golfing). A narcissistic pursuit by Obama of recognition hidden behind political fund-raising to achieve enhanced celebrity recognition and not leadership recognition, allows one to easily conclude – Obama is not nor has ever been qualified to be President.
One may conclude Obama is a good father and husband. One responsibility shrouded in privacy and the other in a daily schedule recorded for his legacy. But what were you doing the night of Benghazi, to many beers, perhaps. Which, as clearly stated in your biography you are capable of. Perhaps, instead of being under the bleachers you were on the third floor of your residency. Where were you when veterans care collapsed, or political operatives used the IRS to assault Americans and then pleaded the 5th, while your Attorney General did nothing.
As parents we all know that a new-born child growing to infancy will cry. A child that is beginning life learning and gaining knowledge and experience. Obama makes us all feel like wanting to shake a screaming baby – but you can’t. Less than two years left in this childhoods term. Perhaps America will decide to elect another infant as President, even though she at 70 would be the first woman celebrity elected.
Americans might choose instead, to elect an adult that deserves to be President .
