I wrote a very similar piece at The Examiner last night on this subject...The tax man cometh.
Obama's detractors seem to believe he is either an incompetent pawn in over his head as president or an evil mastermind directing an international conspiracy to subvert America.
The fact is that Barack Hussein Obama II was an Illinois state senator of little notice or importance who managed to win election to the U.S. Senate in 2004, where he remained undistinguished. Obama has benefited from staged rhetorical skills dependent on the availability of a teleprompter and the perception that he embodied the culmination of left-wing values in an electable package. As his presidency has progressed, his lack of experience and basic knowledge of the political process have been on full display for all to see.
Against this backdrop, it's hard to imagine that Obama is an evil genius in league with George Soros to destroy America. In this scenario, an international cabal of progressive radicals financed by Soros has managed to fool America into electing Obama president, whereupon Obama works behind the scenes to institute the radical progressive agenda under the veneer of a centrist Democrat.
Soros also figures prominently in the incompetent pawn scenario as the evil puppeteer pulling Obama's strings to accomplish Soros's nefarious plans. Here, Obama is an amateur politician who has bought into the radical progressive agenda as a path to power without developing the skills needed to successfully govern, who takes his orders from the likes of Soros in an attempt to look intellectual and presidential.
Reality, as is so often the case, lies somewhere in the middle. Obama was raised around radical progressives and truly believes in their agenda, but as a narcissist, he believes even more in his own infallible abilities. His narcissism makes thin-skinned, unable to handle criticism, unable to admit mistakes, and unwilling to compromise or even admit the existence of a different point of view unless it serves his purposes to do so. Is there an international cabal of progressive radicals with the ability to control the world? This is probably as likely as an international cabal of conservatives bent on a vast right-wing conspiracy to control the world -- which means not likely. [...] go read the rest - click the picture
