‘‘The notion that my White House would purposely release classified national security information is offensive,’’ [President] Obama said during a White House news conference.
With all due respect, Mr. President: It is NOT your White House. It is your administration using the people’s White House.
It is the people’s White House and it is lent to you to enable and facilitate you dispose of the job of leading the country. And let me say that in almost three and one-half years you have done a very lousy job so far.
During your administration the country has grown the national debt to more than the size of the gross domestic product. The credit rating has for the first time been downgraded to less than AAA. Unemployment numbers were higher than we have seen in a few generations. You played more rounds of golf than played by all your predecessors combined. You campaigned for re-election since the day after your inauguration. You roamed around the globe to apologize for what America is all about.
In short, Mr. President, you are a disgrace to the office. If you can maintain that the private sector economy is doing just fine, it only proves you are delusional and living in an alternate reality.
I devoted chapters 24 through 26 of my book, Flirting with Misadventures, to demonstrate why and how this is so. On page 288, I explicitly stated,
The deployment of a regime of czars, with 26 czardoms at last count, and counting, “. . . is an unprecedented power grab centralizing authority in the White House, outside congressional oversight and in violation of the Constitution.”
So do the country a favor and relinquish the office to somebody who is a little bit more sober than you have proved to be in more than three years.
