The decline and fall of America

It should be abundantly clear to all by now why Rush Limbaugh said he hoped Barack Obama would fail.
Libs tried to twist his meaning and make it appear that Limbaugh was hoping Obama would fail to bring about world peace, halt the alleged rise of the oceans and create prosperity throughout the land, as he had promised.
In fact, Limbaugh was hoping Obama would fail in his hidden agenda.
In truth, it wasn't hidden -- except by the liberal media.
Obama, who is so hedonistic that he had written two books about himself before he ever achieved anything, had made his agenda clear. (Unless you are among those who believe getting elected to political office is an achievement, he still hasn't achieved anything.)
That agenda was revealed in a best-selling book by Dinesh D-Souza, later made into a movie.
Obama is imbued with an obsessive hated for "colonialism." That would be fine, except that he believes the United States is guilty of colonialism.
Raised and mentored by communists and clearly disapproving of capitalism, Obama promised to "fundamentally transform" America.
Why would anyone want to fundamentally transform the most powerful, prosperous and compassionate nation in history?
And what would that mean if it did not mean to make America less powerful, less prosperous and less compassionate?
What has happened since Obama got elected?
The nation is less prosperous. The economic "recovery" is the most listless ever experienced. The Obamacare train wreck will ensure continued economic stress.
The nation is less powerful. Our enemies no longer fear us and our friends no longer trust us.
As we pull back, communists, islamofascists and others who are not friends of freedom move forward, emboldened toward aggression and tyranny.
According to a new book, Obama never believed in the strategy he pursued in Afghanistan. Having called it "the right war," he made a half-hearted effort for political reasons, ordering a surge that was insufficient to do the job. He imposed rules of engagement that are getting troops killed in record number. Three-fourths of all deaths in Afghanistan have been on his watch -- with liberals silent throughout.
Charles Krauthammer called this political prosecution of a war the worst thing Obama has done. Worse than Benghazi, Fast and Furious, IRS persecution of political opponents and all the rest.
It is too bad that Limbaugh's hopes were not realized.
