His Queeg Moment
American Spectator, by Hal G. P. Colebatch

Original Article

Posted By:tnorling, 2/1/2013 12:03:24 PM

In Herman Wouk’s classic World War II novel, The Caine Mutiny, there is a moment when a group of the ship’s officers are getting away from the increasingly eccentric Captain Queeq by relaxing ashore.(SNIP)Obama’s second inauguration speech may be his Queeg moment — an undeniable demonstration that, in an emergency, he is incapable of grappling with reality. For all his unceasing invocation of the word “change,” the outstanding thing about Obama has been his apparent inability to react, even to an imminent crisis.

Comments:
An Australian perspective.

A lot of people have suggested that Obie WON Kenya-Obie is queeg...

Did I spell that right?

He´s like a Prom Queeg.
He thinks he´s so precious.
Maybe even precocious.

He´s really just a vacuous, resentful, vengeful, spiteful DOLT.
Once our nation turns on him and his revolting policies...
The massive resulting rebelion will reverse and overturn his damage...
to the extent that remains possible.

He´s going down, whilst the Ship of State sails on without him and his nutsense.
"Clown Overboard!!" Lost at sea, like Osama bin Laden. His Muslim Bruddah.
Maybe he´ll enjoy his new 72 virgin playmates. But if he´s really queeg?
Not so much.

As a nation we are very vulnerable to attack by our enemies as never before in the last 50 years. Obama would not push the button; he would allow our country to be destroyed.

FTA: "The dancing is still there, the golf, the celebs, the multi-million dollar holidays, but behind them it is possible to detect a desperate emptiness, a interconnected mosaic of failure."

Well golly gee whiz Mr. Colebatch, why the big surprise? After all, our young undocumented Kenyan chief executive had never previously managed anything his entire life, to include a corner candy store or even a McDonald´s milkshake machine.

He might just pull out the ball bearings, if one of the syncophants he takes questions from would ask something other than "what kind of ice cream does Shasha like"
The conduct of the writers in these conferences is an embarassment to even the Columbia School of Journalism dropouts that attend.

Instead of Queeg, how about comparing Obama to "Foxhole Norman" Dike from Band Of Brothers. Lt. Dike freezes during a stalled assault on Foy leaving his Easy Company vulnerable and exposed to enemy artillery and mortar fire. Winters, the battalion commander, relieved him with no time to spare and the assault succeeded. As a nation we missed our chance to relieve Obama last November. Afraid we are stuck with this putz for another 4 years.

I would have to ask Mr. Colebatch to consider the man-child not to be incompetent, insane or in over his head. He might consider his actions, or the lack therein, intentional and therefor malicious.

Seems we have had this discussion before. If the won is dumb as a sack of hammers then he is in over is head. If he really is brilliant, then this destruction of the America we grew up in must be intentional.

Either way, I am beginning to think joe bite-me may in fact be a better alternative. Scary stuff kids. Scary stuff.

Anyone who has experience in giving orders that lives depend on, experience in judging the abilities of personnel under them to carry out orders, experience in managing people under conditions of great stress and time-critical pressure, knows without a trace of doubt that the man who currently goes by the name of Barack Obama, has not a whit of the experience, the temperament, or the mental discipline to carry out the duties of Commander in Chief.

A couple of years ago I came to the conclusion that Obama´s intent is to destroy America as I have known it all my life. On every front- finances, foriegn policy, military, culture, welfare, immigration, basic freedoms, his actions have been to weaken our nation, weaken our friends and aid our enemies.

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water. Cliven Bundy and his

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

Hillary Clinton was the planned keynote speaker at the 17th Annual Western Healthcare Leadership Academy in San Diego on April 11 - but she´s cancelled her visit in the midst of planned protests from San Diego locals and military families. Protestors organized by "The Difference Matters" do not want the former U.S. Secretary of State to come because of Clinton´s role in the Benghazi scandal. "She is not welcome here in San Diego by so many of us. We don´t want her here," said Jan Iverson, a local mother and protestor. (Snip) Clinton´s office says she changed plans because of

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

Barack Obama got quite the handful on Thursday, April 10, but it was all for a good cause! As the President of the United States was boarding Air Force One with his wife Michelle Obama, a gust of wind blew up her skirt. Barack quickly stepped in and grabbed the First Lady´s billowing skirt to help her avoid a wardrobe malfunction and embarrassing Marilyn Monroe moment. Earlier in the week, another famous lady on the global stage suffered a similar snafu, but no one was around to help her -- not even her prince!

Recently elected Democratic Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe is warning that global warming could raise sea levels high enough to flood the Hampton Roads region, home to the world´s largest naval base, without immediate and “smart decisions.” Addressing an environmental summit this week at the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Va., McAuliffe embraced climate change, blamed humans for causing it, and said action is needed now to protect Virginia´s coast from rising ocean levels that will result from global warming. “The first big decision of course is to accept that climate change is real,” he told the group. “I happen to believe in

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling. That´s thanks to the letter House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp sent this week to the Justice Department recommending a criminal probe of Lois Lerner. The average citizen might be dizzied by the torrent of confusing terms—BOLO lists, Tigta, 501(c)(4)—and the array of accusations that have made up this IRS investigation. Mr. Camp´s letter takes a step back to remind us why this matters, even as it provides compelling new information that goes to motive and method—and clarifies some of

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle. Michael Parker and Flora Chang, at Sanford Bernstein, say we entering a new order of "global energy deflation" that must ineluctably erode the viability of oil, gas and the fossil fuel nexus over time.

STAMFORD, Conn. — Jeb Bush defended his controversial comments about immigration reform, insisting they were nothing new for him and urging “sensitivity to the immigrant experience.” At a Connecticut Republican party dinner Thursday night, the former Republican governor of Florida did not repeat his remarks from last weekend at his father’s presidential library, when he said that people who come to the United States illegally in search of a better life for their children “broke the law, but it’s not a felony. It’s an act of love.” This time the potential 2016 candidate put it differently. “To be young and

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

Under the administration of President Obama, as never before in my lifetime, there is reason to be a bit afraid of the federal government. I have written two books documenting Obama´s abuses of power, his assaults on the Constitution, his wars against business and energy, his abominably reckless spending, his divisiveness, his renegade Justice Department, his regulatory expansion, his executive orders, his overall lawlessness, and more. Obama´s conduct concerning Obamacare alone would be enough to get the impeachment wheels rolling for any other president. His flagrant, deliberate lies regarding almost every aspect of that

The deportation of foreigners living illegally in the United States is similar to the forced internment of ethnic-Japanese Americans in World War II, according to Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi. “I’ll be very honest with you: Looking at the numbers at some point, in terms of how people are treated and deported and families separated and the rest, this has a scent of Japanese internment,” Pelosi told a Politico reporter. “It’s really a black mark,” said Pelosi. Roughly 110,000 ethnic-Japanese immigrants and their American children were detained during World War II after Japan’s sneak attack on Americans in Pearl Harbor. Pelosi also urged Obama
