The war recovery?
(Washington Post) -- by David S. Broder --
...OH, YES, I know that Democrats have fallen into a peck of trouble and may lose control of Congress. But even if they do, Obama can still storm back to win a second term in 2012. He is that much better than the competition.
In what respects is he enduringly superior? Let's start with the basics. He is much smarter than his challengers in either party, better able to read the evidence and come to the right conclusions.
Over time, his conclusions are likely to stand scrutiny better than those of other politicians.
The crucial case in point is his analysis of economic forces. No one would pretend that this is anything but a daunting situation. The nation is suffering simultaneously from high and persistent unemployment, lagging investment, massive public and private debt, and a highly inefficient tax system.
The steps that have been ordered so far in Washington have done nothing more than put the brakes on the runaway decline. They have not spurred new growth.
But if Obama cannot spur that growth by 2012, he is unlikely to be reelected. The lingering effects of the recession that accompanied him to the White House will probably doom him...
Look back at FDR and the Great Depression. What finally resolved that economic crisis? World War II.
Here is where Obama is likely to prevail. With strong Republican support in Congress for challenging Iran's ambition to become a nuclear power, he can spend much of 2011 and 2012 orchestrating a showdown with the mullahs. This will help him politically because the opposition party will be urging him on. And as tensions rise and we accelerate preparations for war, the economy will improve.
I am not suggesting, of course, that the president incite a war to get reelected. But the nation will rally around Obama because Iran is the greatest threat to the world in the young century. If he can confront this threat and contain Iran's nuclear ambitions, he will have made the world safer and may be regarded as one of the most successful presidents in history...MORE...LINK
Chris Moore comments:
Now that's chutzpah: Jewish-Lefty David Broder advises Obama to save his crumbling presidency by putting America on the fast-track to war with Iran, but denies he's suggesting the president incite war to get reelected. Broder says "Iran is the greatest threat to the world in the young century," when he knows full well the greatest threat to the world is his own Jewish supremacist ideology of Zionism.
Broder: “Look back at FDR and the Great Depression. What finally resolved that economic crisis? World War II.”
In other words, FDR took us to war in part to end the Great Depression; Obama should do the same.
Broder is simply frankly stating left-liberal, Marxist-lite, Keynesian thought, morality and ethics. Lefties like to pose as morally superior, even as they engage in the most scurrilous, cynical and murderous social, political and geopolitical maneuvering. Not surprisingly, the neocons who so heavily influenced the Bush administration war (and economic) policy had Trotksyite backgrounds with thought patterns and world-views similar to Broder’s.
It’s time to flush the entire regressive, post-Christian, pseudo-scientific, amoral, social-engineering/warmongering class back down into the sewers where they belong.
