Supporters of President Barack Obama often say that he is a “deep” thinker, but, how deep a thinker is he when he has failed to look into the crimes and human rights violations that occurred under the Bush administration? Normally, deep thinkers look into the dark past of their society, not avoid it, because they know that you can’t move forward without facing the past first. Dealing with the shadows can be a healing process if done right. Nations, like individuals, experience trauma and dark days, and covering them up only makes the problems worse.
Obama decided to “look forward, not backward,” a decision that was more than an error in judgment. It was an act of treason and betrayal. America needed a Lincoln, or a King, but instead it got a two-faced con artist. There is nothing “deep” about Obama’s intellect. A deep thinker doesn’t keep his country in hell but leads it towards purgatory. A deep thinker doesn’t need a teleprompter to speak his/her mind. I’m not even sure that Obama has an independent mind. Neither did Bush, Clinton, or Reagan. As President of the world’s only superpower, these men have spoken not their own thoughts, but officialdom’s thoughts. Obama, Bush, Clinton, and Reagan are not leaders in any sense of the term.
Obama, like Bush, is little brother, not Big Brother. But they’re not innocent little followers, either. Obama, also like Bush, has a lot of blood on his hands. Instead of bringing members of the Bush administration to justice for torture, secret arrests, unlawful detention, war crimes, state terrorism, and treason, and introducing reforms that address the failures of the U.S. justice system and banking system, Obama has continued Bush’s most undemocratic and treasonous policies.
