Quickies: It’s True! It’s True!

     Remember this observation by Mark Steyn?

     Many Americans are beginning to pick up the strange vibe that, for Barack Obama, governing America is “an interesting sociological experiment,” too. He would doubtless agree that the United States is “the place on earth that, if I needed one, I would call home.” But he doesn’t, not really: It is hard to imagine Obama wandering along to watch a Memorial Day or Fourth of July parade until the job required him to. That’s not to say he’s un-American or anti-American, but merely that he’s beyond all that. Way beyond. He’s the first president to give off the pronounced whiff that he’s condescending to the job — that it’s really too small for him and he’s just killing time until something more commensurate with his stature comes along.

     It appears that the era’s greatest commentator nailed it before anyone else:

     Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reportedly is planning payback for President Obama’s dismissing Mr. Netanyahu’s objections to the Iran nuclear deal last year. Mr. Netanyahu is said to be rallying moderate Arabs to thwart Mr. Obama’s bid to become the Secretary-General of the United Nations after he leaves the White House next year.

     Mr. Obama has already discussed the issue with Republican, Democratic and Jewish officials in the United States, according to Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Jarida.

     Mr. Netanyahu recently is said to have gotten wind of Obama’s plans which he calls the Obama Project. “Wasn’t eight years of having Obama in office enough?” Mr. Netanyahu is quoted in the Kuwaiti daily as telling associates. “Eight years during which he ignored Israel? And now he wants to be in a position that is liable to cause us hardships in the international arena.”

     We can leave aside Israel’s current troubles. With Obama at the helm of the United Nations, that despicable body is likely to work actively for Israel’s annihilation.

     As Mr. Spock would say, “Fascinating.”

     A QUICK UPDATE: Traditionally, the U.N.'s Secretary-General was supposed to come from a non-aligned nation: i.e., a nation not deemed part of either the American or the Soviet bloc. That exclusion appears to have ended with the elevation of Ban Ki-moon of South Korea, an American ally and client state. Would Obama as the Secretary-General of the United Nations justify stripping The Won of his American citizenship? If not, would we finally have an adequate reason for the U.S. to withdraw from the U.N.? Inquiring minds want to know!

I'd rather him at the UN than in the White House. Maybe he will decline to leave at the end of his second term if he can't be Sec Gen.

Given BHO's "citizen of the world" hauteur, one could imagine him renouncing U.S. citizenship and adopting, say, Indonesian allegiance. Just sayin' ...

First, I would disagree that we are merely “an interesting sociological experiment,” to Obama. I think that becoming the Secretary General of the U.N. would be an extension of his desire to destroy both America _and_ Israel. Did anyone miss the fact that he has openly assisted Iran in its stated resolve to destroy both Israel and America, by making it easier for Iran to fulfill its nuclear weapons agenda?

Second, as S-G of the U.N., Obama could consolidate the various countries which hate America and Israel (all 57+ of them ;-), and do the bidding of his masters to bring down Israel first, while continuing to reduce America to third world status, using the U.N. to accelerate the demographic - and violent - jihad of islam against our country. I don't doubt this was planned from the start, along with his ridiculous "Nobel Prize" for breathing. (And just think of all that oxygen he wasted.)
