I think the answer is Yes, for a couple of reasons. The most obvious is his re-election effort affected by Corvette Syndrome–taking credit for and bragging about national security events or accomplishments may give people the impression that he’s tough and cares about the country. Just like men who feel the need to drive around in cars that are meant to signal something they feel deficient in. In other words, legitimate accomplishment doesn’t need to brag or advertise.

The other reason so many people are unwilling to touch is the fact that Obama, throughout his term, has done things to harm this country. So why stop now? It may be subconscious, but you can’t have this much destruction at every level to have it be simple bad luck. Even a broken clock is right twice a day–in order to be this much of a mess Obama has to be working at it. I contend Obama is deliberately doing as much damage as possible to punish us for rejecting him and to make President Romney’s job even more difficult. Not only will Romney have to face an economic disaster, but now he’ll be contending with the aftermath of a president who is revealing national security secrets to the entire world as we arguably plunge toward war on various fronts.

After a slew of leaks about national security efforts, we have another one. Someone from Obama’s administration reveals Stuxnet was created by us and the Israelis:

Stuxnet Worm Crafted by U.S., Israel to Thwart Iran’s Nuclear Program

Even CNN has noticed the disturbing trend at Obama’s White House:

Loose lips and the Obama national security ship

The level of detail spilling out through media reports about crucial national security operations is raising the question of whether President Barack Obama’s administration can keep a secret – or in some cases even wants to.

In just the past week, two tell-all articles about Obama’s leadership as commander-in-chief have been published, dripping with insider details about his sleeves-rolled-up involvement in choosing terrorist targets for drone strikes and revelations about his amped-up cyber war on Iran.

Each article notes the reporters spoke to “current and former” American officials and presidential advisers, as well as sources from other countries.

“This is unbelievable … absolutely stunning,” a former senior intelligence official said about the level of detail contained in the cyberattack story.

The official noted that the article cited participants in sensitive White House meetings who then told the reporter about top secret discussions. The article “talks about President Obama giving direction for a cyberweapons attack during a time of peace against a United Nations member state.”

I believe Obama knows it’s over, through internal polls and simple obviousness of his incompetence. I’m sure he blames the American people–he believed we’d sit back and take our punishment. That’s another serious problem he has–his projection of his own loathing of himself as an American onto all of us. He truly thinks we’re awful and expects us to accept denigration. His own election perhaps reinforced his contempt for the American people. With his dislike of the White House itself, his elitist, condescending attitude toward Americans, his preferred “campaign” strategy of trying to pit us at each others throats (racial tensions, gender tensions, class war, gays versus straights), and deliberately destruction economic jihad, he has gotten away with a lot. Now he’s shocked we’ve had enough. Well, Newsflash for Obama: we have.

When George W. Bush became president, his team found that the Clinton regime had vandalized the White House. In at least one example of Frat House pettiness, Clinton’s team removed all the “W”s from the computer keyboards. Ha ha ha. One of the things that Clinton should have removed was left behind–the Oval Office carpeting. President Bush’s team had to do that themselves.

    I disagree with the assessment that Obama knows it’s over, from which a series of conclusions naturally follow.

    I’m convinced Obama’s text book narcissism (see http://psychcentral.com/disorders/sx36.htm) is driving the leaks. Every leak is designed to demonstrate Obama is in control, is a good leader, is exceptionally competent, or knows what he’s doing, none of which is actually true.

    If I’m right, a whole new series of conclusions can be drawn, which conclusions are not good for America or Americans, and they are especially not good for those who help us, such as that poor soul being tortured in a Pakistani prison right now.

    I’m seriously afraid for our nation.

    IloiloKano Hey, I agree with you! You can never underestimate your opponent, especially when they are Liars, Manipulators,
    Voting Frauds, and LIBS!! They are SNAKES. This guy will do ANYTHING to remain President, even if he has to cause some kind of disaster ( like he hasnt already, I mean….a bad disaster).
    I want to LANDSLIDE ALL OF THESE MF’s and have THEM have to LOOK FOR JOBS>> HA!
    I have NO PROBLEM WITH RUNNING UP THE SCORE, NO MERCY COMIN FROM HERE.

    BUT ~NEVER~ UNDER ESTIMATE YOUR OPPONENT, ESPECIALLY ONES THAT ARE SERIAL LIARS & SLITHER ABOUT.
    KEEP FOCUS ON OUR JOB… TO GET VOTERS TO OUST THE DUMB BASTARD. or WE will be the dumb bastards!
    Kindest Regards, ;-)

    I agree with you Tammy. What ever happened to the ethics of keeping an oath? These guys (POTUS and the Congress)swear to defend the US and the US Constitution and then once in; they figure out ways to destroy it! Thank God for the Tea Party and the hope of cleaning out our “representatives.”

  4. geezee says:

    great briefing Tammy…your anger expresses mine as nowhere else on media…I am SO SICK of watching or hearing talking heads chuckle or laugh when they talk about Obama. IT’S NOT FUNNY. Lou Dobbs the worst among the chucklers. what is UP with these idiots? Mark Levin does not laugh. Tammy Bruce does not laugh. I don’t laugh. It’s NOT FUNNY.

    i fear the election will be stolen… already we hear of the dead on rolls, let’s not forget the black panthers intimidating voters, al franken getting elected, the no-ID crowds (vote how many times), and the CHAD bullshit down in florida few elections ago. i see this nightmare unfolding…

    have you considered: db is sick and tired of being EXPECTED to work. sick and tired of anyone expecting RESULTS from his policies and rolling over for our enemies, tired of his incompetence being on videotape, newspapers, TV, etc… i think he does not WANT to be president any more. He wants to be dave Letterman. or Al Green. or george Clooney. if he can’t be those guys he’ll settle for preezy so he’s hanging in on the fund raisers, but preezy is old news to him. been there done that. that THINGAMAJIG speech he gave is a man who simply does not give a SHIT what anyone thinks. he’s SET so why should he care. but–i still am not convinced hollywood will have him. i think they wash their hands of him the SPLIT SECOND he loses election. he is a bottom feeder, even to them. also–i predict divorce for the obamas within 2 years of loss of election, if that long. they are both gonna be reminders to each other of what total ZEROES they both are. no one wants to look into that mirror. i just read they are both disbarred lawyers, is that true. an email hoax maybe?

    Also–just wanted to mention, hearing you talk of royalty. I’m a fan too, lived in Scotland a while… we Americans really don’t quite get how she is held in esteem there… she is the vicar of Christ on Earth for the Episcopal church. They speak of the Queen as even a bit un-earthly. i once heard a newscaster say of Queen Mum as she got into a car: “oh look! she smoothed out her dress as she got into the car!–so human!” that sort of talk. My English mother in law would put on a skirt to hear the Queen give her Christmas TV address. It’s rather remarkable… we Americans tend to dismiss…it’s just not in our realm of thinking.

      Thanks for this post Dennis, I can see you put work into it. Reading over the list, I have a real gut level reaction when I read the name…John O. Brennan. If I were a gambling man…and I am a bit…I would lay odds on a lot of this crap is coming out of that office. The guy is a weasel…and whining weasel at that…

        All Hail Captain Trips!!!

        And Hillary Clinton, Samantha Power and Susan Rice are the ones who got the U.S. into the Libya mess, remember?

  6. strider says:

    He seems just worthless. Maybe divulging national secrets is a way of acting out in desperation. It’s surprising that these leaks haven’t been traced. If the tracks are well covered it might be more than some jerk acting out.

  7. ancientwrrior says:

    Hopefully in November we can flush the whole stinking toilet that is Washington, out into the middle of the Atlantic ocean.

  8. imacat says:

    Could it be that they are trying to stir up enough anger to possibly provoke an attempt on his life, which they hope would generate enough sympathy to get him re-elected? I would not put anything past them.

    O will do absolutely anything that he thinks makes him look good – of course he’s deliberately leaking national security secrets. He doesn’t CARE what the impact is on others. If it does hurt the country, so much the better – then he gets a twofer. He should be impeached, but it will never happen.

  11. Alain41 says:

    The Chicago Way. There is no such thing as a secret, there is only information to be hoarded. Until the time is right to use it, either by threatening to make it public or releasing it with or without attribution.

    Keeping a secret requires loyalty to someone or something or both. There is no loyalty in Chicago. There is only Rule. Submit or be destroyed.

            Oh yea…and I will raise you another Bronze Star and a Combat Air Medal..since you have this desire to post this publically.

            And welcome home…..

    • otlset says:

      My first encounter with a disagreeable and off-putting TAM! I had to read it several times before it dawned on me “he really is trying to be a jerk!”

  13. larrygeary says:

    Obama is either insane or guilty of treason – or both. It’s high time the Congress demand his resignation, and if he refuses, invoke the XXV Amendment and declare him mentally unfit to perform the duties of his office, and remove him. Let Biden, Hillary, ANYBODY but this maniac fill out his term. He does more damage to our country every day. We can’t afford to wait until November.

  14. movemagicstory says:

    Agreed. I don’t think he’s trying to boost his image. BHO hates America and wants to level the theater of war away from our dominance.

  15. greenlantern2011 says:

    Is he a dangerously incompetent amateur or an enemy of the state? Makes no difference. Obama is toxic.

    That is why you see even Democraps throwing him overboard. They thought he was just a millstone around their necks they could let sink or swim on his own. Now they see he will bring down the whole Dem party if they don’t start acting like patriots and disown him now.

  16. iris354 says:

    Contrast this true breach of national security with the ridiculous Valerie Plame affair (and subsequent witch hunt for the “leaker”). I just hope rampant fraud doesn’t secure this traitor a second term.

    Loose lips!

  18. Trish S says:

    Faith, family, friends and prayer! We must stay involved shedding light on these stories! Thank you, Tammy for all you do! We need to stand strong in the *bumpy* days ahead; just as previous generations have shown us! Good will win out in the end!

    • Trish S says:

      Also, I think the chat room here at the site is a great way to keep our fellowship strong! It is part of what makes being a TAM so unique. Tammy, please consider having this perk back, even if only once a week or whenever. Everyone in chat today was very happy to interact with each other, as well as, express their commentary within the framework of the show. Thanks to Gina for providing that today!
