The “No-Show” President



The White House admits that Obama or Biden should have gone to Paris.

The President specializes in admitting

And apologizing.


It’s a way of seeming humble when you are arrogant,

It’s a way of getting your critics to imagine that you are a good guy.


Wouldn’t it have been better to not take credit for decimating

Al-Qaeda but actually having done it?


Wouldn’t it have been better to have demolished Isis?


Wouldn’t it have been better for the world to have ganged up against

The Muslims and diked their borders against the ocean of immigrants.


Wouldn’t it have been better for Obama  to stop bragging

About what he did for the middle class

When he did nothing?


Obama is exceptional in diminishing America’s exceptionalism.


He spills drops on our traditions and we shrink like Alice in Wonderland.

He thinks that he is George Washington inventing a new country

But he is Benedict Arnold shoveling our graves into  what was once

America the Beautiful.
