Obama and national security

The fundamental role of government is to protect the public. (And no, run the economy, pick winners and losers, feed the people, house the people, educate the people, provide healthcare to the people—the whole spread the money around thing isn’t on the protect the public list.)

As such, the President has been an epic failure in fulfilling his most fundamental responsibility, that of protecting the public, most clearly seen in our national security endeavors. The Obama model—including reward your enemies and ignore (or punish) your friends—has proven to be a fiasco.

How does the government protect the populace? It buys “insurance” in the form of funding the national security mechanisms (and through the development and exercise of the instruments of national power). As a result of the debt dragon, another rule of government—one that will affect everything, but it appears, especially defense—if it ain’t funded, it ain’tis very much in play.


About Professor Mockumental

I enjoy almost all forms of parody, buffoonery, and general high-jinks. Satire has shown itself to be an essential societal need; I therefore humbly offer my services in such a manner. I enjoy mocking the usual suspects at the New York Times (Charles Blows, Moron Dowd, and the earth is flat guy) and Washington Post (Dana Milkbag, E.D. Dijon, and David Ignoramus). There are many others as well, but sadly, there are always too many targets and too little time.
