A White House Insider Talks
This extract is from the middle of Ulsterman's
latest interview with a "White House Insider" who reveals a
Democratic Party civil war, with growing opposition to the Obama White
So who do you place the most blame for the Democratic
Party’s troubles today? -- President Obama and his
administration, without a doubt. The Obama White House has been a
political train wreck from day one, and it isn’t getting any better at
the moment. You already know my feelings on that.
Previously you stated that Obama could be re-elected in 2012, and that
if he improved himself on the job, that if he took a more active and
responsible role as President, that you would support him. Do you still
feel that way? -- Is that what I said? (shakes head)
Well…(pauses) Ok, I’ll just come out and say what is already
underway, and to hell with the possible consequences to me. I will
not support Barack Obama in 2012. That possibility has left the
table for me. Based on what I know, what I have been told, what I
have seen in recent weeks…no, I cannot support the President for a
second term. My concern for the party, for the country…my
conscience does not allow me that option any longer. Obama is not
fit to be president. He simply does not possess the inclinations
necessary to lead the country. And I don’t like saying that.
I helped the man get elected. I was in the trenches day after day
from city to city helping things get done in 2008…I take no pleasure in
saying I was a part of that. And I take no pleasure in saying
Obama should not be re-elected in 2012.
That is a very
strong statement. Anything recent that causes you to now say you
will not support Obama in 2012? (Long pause and the question is
repeated) -- There is much I have been told, some I know, some more
that will probably develop in the coming weeks and months. But you
want specifics, right? I understand that…I’ll give you an example
of why President Obama is not right for America. He sure as hell
has not been right for the party. Not long ago, the president took
a meeting. He’s late, which apparently is becoming more and more
common with him. The meeting was almost cancelled. In
strolls the president, joking with an aide. He plops down on a
sofa, leans over and claps another guy on the back asking how he’s been.
Apologizes for being late, says he was "held up." He laughs some
more. The meeting begins. After just ten minutes, during
which time the president appears to almost totally withdraw into
himself, an aide walks in and whispers something to the president, who
then nods and quickly stands up, shakes a few hands and tells another
aide to update him later on the rest of the meeting. As the
president is walking out he is laughing at something yet again. He
asked no questions of those at the meeting -- not one. He left
after just ten minutes, coming in laughing and leaving laughing.
His behavior during that brief time he was there was described as
Ok, you have already stated previously
that Obama doesn’t show much interest in the day to day business of
being president. Why is this example so bad, or different? --
Care to know what that particular meeting was about on that day?
Certainly. -- Afghanistan. That meeting was an update on
Afghanistan, and the President of the United States, the Commander in
Chief, could give a -expletive-.
Were you actually there to
witness this? -- No, I was long gone from the White House by then.
It was told to me though by someone who was. They were there.
First hand. They were also left to apologize to the ones left in
the room after the president left. Some of these were military.
They were not happy. No…that is not accurate. They were
pissed. They didn’t say much at the time, but word got back.
They were in shock at the president’s behavior. The country had
just lost a number of soldiers the week prior, the public opinion on the
war was falling…and the president didn’t seem to care. He arrives
late, leaves early, appears to emotionally shut down during the actual
discussion, and to then start laughing once again as he is leaving…how
does someone reconcile with that kind of behavior? I can’t.
It turns my stomach. I didn’t want to believe what I was being
told, but I had seen similar kinds of behavior from the president
myself, and I can’t dispute the credibility of the source. They
have no reason to lie.
So is that one example the real
tipping point for you in no longer being willing to support Obama in
2012? Or do you have any others you wish to share? -- Oh, I
have others, though I cannot share all of them at this point because
they involve some still in range of potential White House retribution.
Then again, I suppose I am still in range of such retribution myself.
What do you mean by retribution? Punishment. Political
punishment, and even personal punishment. -- The powers of a
president extend far beyond the Oval Office. You know that.
I make my living, and it has been a very good living, working within the
system of politics. A president can create considerable…pressure
if you will, to limit or even destroy my place in that system.
Working with a president is an extraordinary and terrifying thing.
In regards to my experience with Obama, it became far less extraordinary
and far more terrifying. And it’s getting worse.
