Weak was the goal

These poll results are dismaying but shouldn't really be surprising:

A majority of voters say the Obama administration is less competent than Bill Clinton’s and a plurality say it is less competent than George W. Bush’s according to a new Fox News poll released Wednesday.

Sixty-eight percent say the Obama administration is less competent that the Clinton administration. Forty-eight percent say it is less competent than Bush’s, compared to 42 percent who say it is more competent. Seven percent judge Obama’s and Bush’s the same.

Fifty-five percent say that the Obama administration has made the country weaker; 35 percent say his administration has made it stronger.

The thing is, the undeniable fact that America is weaker now should not be attributed to incompetence on Obama's part -- he got exactly what he was aiming for in that department. You don't have to listen to very many of his speeeches to realize he views American strength as a problem, not as a positive thing. We are all citizens of the world, you see, and it's just not right to have one super power lording it over everyone else. A weaker America is a better world.
