While Obama Campaigns

Obama’s been running for re-election since last summer. Since that time, he has done absolutely NOTHING but make decisions with an eye toward November 2012. He’s put out budgets that have NO hope of passing, but would excite the liberal base. He’s pandered to women,and gays, and illegal immigrants, all with an eye toward keeping himself in office. He’s topped 200 fundraisers since he officially announced his re-election, and spends 4 days a week at campaign events or fundraisers – and HAS FOR MONTHS AT THIS POINT.

So then we look at Syria which the Wall Street Jounral likens to an Existential play called “Waiting for Barack.” Waiting for him to make a decision be re-elected.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton continued the Samuel Beckett diplomacy on the weekend, visiting Istanbul and announcing that Turkey and the U.S. will study a range of new policy options, including the imposition of a no-fly zone over Syrian territory. “Our intelligence services, our military have very important responsibilities and roles to play so we are going to be setting up a working group to do exactly that,” she said.

Well, there you are, Estragon. Eighteen months after the uprising began, more than 20,000 deaths and a quarter-million refugees later, the Obama Administration has set up “a working group.”

That right there encasulates what is wrong with college professiors and intellectuals running the government. To THEM, a “solution” is to get together and think about it. Have a few meetings Perhaps they could do a weekend thing at Camp David? Someone can take a few pictures of Obama looking serious, perhaps with a baseball bat in his hand, before he wisks off for a round of golf.

The truth is that everyone knows, most of all Assad and his patrons in Tehran and Moscow, that Mr. Obama has decided to put the world on hold until after November 6. Israel is supposed to do nothing about Iran, and Syria’s rebels are supposed to hunker down and survive, in order to let Mr. Obama keep assuring Americans that “the tide of war is receding.” On the contrary, thanks in part to Mr. Obama’s calculated abdication, Middle East tension and turmoil are rising.

So, while Syria burns, Obama is coming off of a weekend of fund raising in Chicago, an it now heading out for three days of campgaining through Iowa.

THREE DAYS.

Iowa.

*scratches head.

I’m not sure if I read that right.

Meanwhile …

    Iowa started his rise to the presidency, so now he’s gonna shore up his support there.

    An informal poll at the Iowa State Fair (Cast Your Kernel) has Obama down 12 points, 56-44. He’s got a lot of work to do. 1% of the population lives in Iowa (3 million). 7 electoral votes.
