If Obama Isn’t In Charge, Who Is?

When Senator Obama was running for President he wanted to have the world – especially Europe – “like” America all over again. Who will ever forget the adoring crowd when he spoke in Germany? I would be hard-pressed to believe that crowd would assemble today to hear the empty rhetoric of hope and change.

In pursuit of being “liked” as if we were a Facebook page, America under President Obama struggles to be respected. Last week a scathing letter from Saudi Arabia, certainly not our closest ally, was an indicator of the lack of respect Mr. Obama has engendered.

Now the Obama administration is fighting against allegations of spying on German Chancellor Angela Merkel, as well as some 34 other world leaders. The confusion coming from the NSA regarding eavesdropping exploits causes great concern as to what President Obama is being told. We appear to have a President who is either uninformed — perhaps purposefully — incompetent, or possibly lying outright to other world leaders and to the American people. Singularly, any of those circumstances would be troubling, but any combination is greatly disturbing.

If Barack Obama is not engaged in these type of decisions, then who is? The real question America must begin to ask forcefully, because certainly the mainstream media will not, is who exactly is in charge of the United States of America? Is it Valerie Jarrett? Is it George Soros? Is it David Axelrod? Is it David Plouffe?

Who is the “man behind the curtain” pulling the levers creating the great and powerful Wizard of Obama? Why is it that a Canadian company was responsible for setting up the website, which over the weekend had another fatal error? There are so many questions that must be answered and just imagine, if we didn’t have House Republicans holding hearings, how much more in the dark would we be in America?

Certainly, the Democrat-controlled Senate is not serious about investigating this administration. And a Nancy Pelosi redux will not hold the Obama administration accountable in its final two years. The President who claimed he would restore America’s reputation in the world is completely destroying it. The question must be, was that his real intent?
