"It profits me but little that a vigilant authority always protects the tranquillity of my pleasures and constantly averts all dangers from my path, without my care or concern, if this same authority is the absolute master of my liberty and my life."

--Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

Obama's Wildly Successful Presidency

The Stimulus and Unemployment.  Solyndra and "Green Energy" Boondoggles.  Fast and Furious.  The Obamacare Debacle. 

Benghazi, Libya and "Leading from Behind."  Syria and the Russian "Reset Button." Retreat from Iraq and Afghanistan. 

The NSA Scandal.  The IRS Scandal.

Every domestic policy Obama has enacted has been a failure or a scam.

Every foreign policy initiative has been a failure and an embarrasment.

His supposedly "most transparent administration ever" has been characterized by remarkable secrecy while at the same time audaciously spying on Americans and our allies with the most intrusive, privacy-destroying technologies ever invented, and illegally using the IRS to target political opponents.

His poll numbers are finally dropping, but remain stubbornly high for a Presidency that has been such an abject failure.

And yet, and yet, and yet.... has it?

What if the point of the Obama Presidency wasn't ever to successfully lead the country and make it a better place?

What if the only point was to line the pockets of his cronies, to ensure the growth of the progressive bureaucratic state and the mandarin classes of lawyers and financiers who run it, to promote the hegemony of the Democratic Party through expanding opportunities for voter fraud, to destroy the Republican Party and conservatism through relentless and shameless demonization of fellow citizens?   What if the real goal was to institute a one-party rule of a bureaucratic socialist regime?

Then Obama's Presidency would have to be deemed a roaring success, wouldn't it?
