Hit The Road, Barack
At the beginning of 2012, Newsweek asked “Why are Obama’s critics so dumb?”
This was par for the course, as with the rest of the mainstream media, they had joined in the hagiography of Obama when he was dutifully crowned with divinity:
“I mean in a way Obama’s standing above the country, above the world, he’s sort of God.”
Oh how the mighty are fallen!
Sunday morning conservatives were knocked out of their chairs with the just-released Newsweek with the magazine’s cover of a photo of Barack Obama, suit jacket swung over his shoulder, and looking arrogantly into the camera. The caption: “Hit the Road, Barack. Why We Need a New President.”
Inside is a 3000-word article by economist Niall Ferguson, excoriating Barack Hussein Obama for gutting the economy and putting us on a road to financial ruin. In slick magazine fashion, there are charts of the economy’s unemployment rate, sluggish growth, and skyrocketing debt.
It also delves into the fact that Obama’s lack of experience in either business or management has equated into a man that is clearly over his head; in which Niall Ferguson quotes Ron Suskind’s book, Confidence Men, of Larry Summers and Peter Orzag (Obama’s economic team) in conversation:
“You know, Peter, we’re really home alone…I mean it. We’re home alone. There’s no adult in charge.
A home where the children are left without adult supervision is problematic. But a country, the sole superpower in the world, without adult supervision is a recipe for disaster, as Niall Ferguson shows with Obama’s disastrous foreign policy leading to the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood in the Middle East and the country’s path to financial ruin.
Is this the beginning of the end of the mainstream media’s love affair with Barack Hussein Obama? Will they send him packing? Will they tell him to “Hit the Road, Barack. And don’t you come back no more, no more…”
Let us hope so.
