President Obama has two primary objects of rage: 1) Israel, and 2) The GOP. A logical question is, “What do these two political entities have in common”? Indeed, what do Israel and the GOP have in common that makes them the primary two entities in the political-world that President Cool can really get worked-up into a rage over?
That question is actually easy to answer: President Cool is infuriated with anyone who does not share his unrealistic ideological beliefs.
One of his more astounding political beliefs has just recently been made apparent: He believes that evil in the world can be managed. Yes, managed; need not be prevented, need not be defeated, need not be destroyed—you don’t even have to have a strategy for it—it just needs to be managed.
“We know that if we are joined by the international community we can continue to shrink ISIL’s sphere of influence, its effectiveness, its financing, its military capabilities to the point where it is a manageable problem.” — Managing Killers
This is a clear, if perhaps unintentional, articulation of a policy of tolerating evil. Many writers have speculated over what might properly be called an Obama Doctrine.
Now we know.
The crux of the Obama Doctrine is simply to Coexist with Evil. And this notion of managing evil (ISIL being only one case) is why Obama’s two primary objects of rage are Israel and the GOP.
The current US foreign-policy JV team (we don’t have a varsity team) led by Barack Obama and John Kerry are desperate for a win. In their desperation for a foreign-policy victory in a 6-year season of no-wins, all-loses; Obama and Kerry attempted to bully Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Israel into withdrawing from the West Bank—of course to appease Israel’s blood-enemies into a “peace” treaty. This bullying effort, led by Obama’s inept Secretary of State, John Kerry collapsed in April 2014.
“ [July 11, 2014] ‘At present we have a problem with the territory called Gaza,’ the prime minister said. But he noted that the West Bank is 20 times the size of Gaza, and vowed that he was not prepared ‘to create another 20 Gazas’ in the West Bank.
“ ‘I think the Israeli people understand now what I always say: that there cannot be a situation, under any agreement, in which we relinquish security control of the territory west of the River Jordan’ — a reference to the Jordan Valley and the West Bank — as Kerry had urged during a US-led peace effort that collapsed in April.
“Citing by name both Kerry and the US security adviser Gen. John Allen, who was charged by the secretary of state to draw up security proposals that the US argued could enable Israel to withdraw from most of the West Bank, including the Jordan Valley, Netanyahu said passionately, ‘I told John Kerry and General Allen, the Americans’ expert: We live here, I live here, I know what we need to ensure the security of Israel’s people.’ ” —Netanyahu calls out team Obama
The modern state of Israel has been, since its inception in 1948, surrounded by evil. They have been surrounded by enemies whose stated and publically-vowed intent is the total annihilation of the nation of Israel—another genocidal holocaust. What could be more evil?
Israel has had to contend with various drive-by-diplomacy attempts at “middle-east peace” such as the flawed Clinton-era Oslo Accords; the unrealistic Bush-era Road map for peace—a two-state solution; followed by the abortive Obama attempt to coerce Israel into relinquishing control of the West Bank.
Most such attempts have been various versions of managing evil by expecting Israel to be willing to accommodate their enemies without the one most critical reciprocal accommodation: The recognition and acceptance of the right of the Nation of Israel to exist in peace.
The latest pathetic attempt, by Obama, following on the heels of the Kerry-led relinquish the West Bank push was the insulting-efforts to force Israel to play-nice by using only a “proportional response” to Hamas-rockets being fired at Israeli citizens and to the Hamas-tunnels being dug to facilitate Hamas-terrorists invasions.
Israel wisely refused to manage the evil of Hamas in perfect accord with the twisted ideology of Barack Obama, and thereby incurred the rage of President Cool.
President Cool wants to manage evil; unmanaged evil disrupts his vacations, his fund-raising trips, and his time on the golf course. So, of course, evil must be managed.
What about the GOP, how do they come-in for rage from President Cool?
Essentially a large portion of the GOP represents the same problem to Obama as the State of Israel does. Most rank-and-file Republicans do not believe that evil can simply be avoided or ignored or managed.
Obama’s perception of this problem and the connection to the GOP goes back to George W. Bush. Of course, “Bush is the problem”; “Bush is the root of all problems.”
In 2002, then President Bush used the term “Axis of evil” to refer to the terrorists supporting the governments of Iraq, Iran, and North Korea. He made the statement during his first State-of-the-union address on January 29, 2002 following the 2001, 9/11 terrorists attacks. This speech, in essence, set the stage for the “war on terror” that defined George W. Bush’s presidency.
The left, especially including Barack Obama, has always hated President Bush, for numerous reasons, and have ridiculed him for his use of the label “Axis of evil” even though as time has passed it is difficult to see how this label is not unpleasantly correct.
Since Barack Obama ran primarily as anti-Bush, he has incorporated into his ideological foreign-policy, rhetoric and efforts to be non-confrontational toward those very governments that Bush labeled as evil, as well as other governments with similar tyrannical and terrorist sympathies.
The Obama Doctrine is simply to Coexist with Evil.
Since the GOP refuses to bless the management of evil in perfect accord with the warped ideology of Barack Obama, they have incurred the rage of President Cool.
