This just in; there’s an overarching reason why President Obama should not be re-elected. It has less to do with U.S. politics than the fact the U.S. presidency isn’t a grand enough stage for a world leader of Obama’s stature since the U.S. is only one nation.
Three grander, multi-national stages – in terms of: economic and race relations; regional wealth and oil reserves; worldwide forum from which to impart his wisdom and advice – are present in the: European Union; Arab League; United Nations. In any of these roles, Obama can use his Community Organizer skills to – identify problems the appropriate governments need to address and – champion those causes with relevant legislation.
The European Union economic model is admired by Obama who desires it for the U.S. He can identify EU one-percenters – who need to pay their fair share of taxes – while protecting precious entitlements of EU citizens.
His Islamic education and sympathies make him a natural for the Arab League. He can advise Arab Spring countries in establishing constitutions and democratic governance. For those countries with petrodollar surpluses, Obama may call on them to pay “their fair share”. Also even Saudi Arabia should be aware, Obama: burns through a trillion USD in less than a year; tends to favor alternative energy sources over fossil fuels.
The UN is a perfect fit for Obama to realize his aspirations to lead the world. As UN leader, he can influence and mold world behavior with his omniscient counsel and lectures.
Obviously, the U.S. will sacrifice greatly to surrender our peerless president but it isn’t fair to the rest of the world for our national interests to deprive other nations of Obama’s unparalleled leadership.
