The Biggest, Most Persistent and Successful Obama Lie Gets Debunked By The Most Unlikely Source

 

 

 

 

” Perhaps the biggest, most persistent and successful lie about Barack Obama is that he’s a nice guy who cares.

  He isn’t. 

  He doesn’t.

  But the last place one expects to hear this myth eviscerated is the New York Times.

  Mr. Obama’s strained association with [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu, who has clashed with other American presidents as well, has been difficult from the start. But the absence of any real connection between them underscores the rule, not the exception, for Mr. Obama, who has only occasionally invested time in cultivating foreign leaders.

  Even his opponent in the last presidential race bought into the lie, choosing to label Obama as nice, but incompetent. Mitt Romney apparently convinced many. Among voters who most valued a candidate who “cares about people like me,” 8-in-10 picked Obama in 2012. Majorities of people who prioritized a candidate who “shares my values,” “is a strong leader,” or “has a vision for the future” all voted for Romney.

  If there’s one area of the president’s job where being a “nice guy who cares” matters most, and holds the greatest consequences for failure, it’s international diplomacy. Building trusting relationships with allies requires personal engagement, concern about the needs of others, and genuine warmth. The mythical Obama that we were sold embodies all of these qualities.

  But the Times admits that President Obama’s foreign relations display a distinct lack of actual relationships. “
