As I said previously, psychologists have recently discovered that as humans we possess an intuitive, unconscious super intelligence that is guided by a deeper, wiser moral compass. This moral compass tries to break through our repression and denial in order to lead us to the paths of wisdom. Often our unconscious “super-intel” moral compass is reflected in a “log in eye” denial.
This is a secret wisdom from the super intelligence.
A person’s super intelligence is at key moments communicating to those around him, whether he knows it or not. President Obama is a prime example.
On Monday night, July 25, I listened to President Obama’s address to the nation concerning our debt crisis.
“There’s no point in putting the economy at risk by kicking the can further down the road,” Obama said, speaking about Republican House Speaker John Boehner’s plan of cutting domestic spending by roughly $1.2 trillion, raising the debt ceiling by $1 trillion and extending the limit through 2012.
Kicking the can?
On July 5th Barack Obama again accused the Republicans of “kicking the can” by failing to seriously negotiate on a debt ceiling deal. The Republicans wanted to prevent raising the debt ceiling, but President Obama disagreed, wanting to raise it, increase tax revenue and spend more money.
Again, Republicans were the ones “kicking the can?”
For months Obama’s lack of leadership during the developing debt crisis allowed our nation’s financial situation to worsen. At the moment the debt crisis reaches the news headlines, the President decides to intervene by lecturing Congress on how it needs to “try to do some tough stuff.”
Think about his “kick the can” accusation. He’s essentially telling the Republicans: You’re playing a childish game. You’re not showing leadership. You’re indecisive. You’re going nowhere. You’re postponing a mature decision.
Could Obama’s comments, through his “log in the eye” denial, really reflect his own inexperience and inability to lead? Is his condescending, belittling tone and critical style of leadership inspiring anyone to follow him?
John Boehner has said numerous times that dealing with Obama is like “trying to negotiate with Jell-o.” Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell backed this up by saying that as long as Obama is in the White House, negotiating a real solution will be impossible. Both Republicans point to Barack Obama as the one playing a game of “kick the can” with the debt crisis.
Negotiations broke down so many times that finally Mr. Obama was excluded from the meetings between Republican and Democratic leaders.
President Obama continued his “log in the eye” denial by labeling the Republicans as the “party of no” and painting them as political predators for the rich who would snatch the Social Security checks out of the hands of millions of Americans and cut their Medicare.
In fact, he’s the “party of no”— no fiscal discipline. He is hell-bent on a massive increase in debt and entitlement spending, which will in the long-term undercut America’s economic growth and endanger the prosperity of all Americans, rich and poor alike.
Obama warned us in his Inaugural address that he wanted “to push the boundaries.” He has consistently had problems with setting boundaries. The debt ceiling is just another one of the boundaries he wants to push.
Our nation panicked when Moody’s and Standard & Poor warned that America’s AAA-rated bonds had a high chance of being down-graded. Both credit rating agencies suggested that no less than a $4 trillion reduction in debt over the next 10 years would prevent America’s credit rating from being reduced.
If we lose our AAA-rating, prices will rise. Americans are already suffering financially by this recession, the greatest one in 65 years. So many individuals are unemployed. Gasoline prices are painfully high. Food is costing us more.
Does Obama understand that this debt crisis is a crisis of debt and not so much about an arbitrary ceiling, or is he intentionally trying to sabotage America economically?
Wayne Allen Root stated rather bluntly, “Obama is economically murdering millions of people.” Also, remember that during his Senate days in 2006, Mr. Obama said: “The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure…It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally….America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.”
How is 2011 different from 2006?
In reality Obama is embodying what he called a “failure of leadership.” In his classic “log in the eye” denial he is failing to lead, and yet he is busy reprimanding everyone else and demanding more financial irresponsibility by asking for an increase in spending.
On July 15, Mr. Obama said, “We have a chance to stabilize America’s finances for a decade, 15 years or 20 years, if we’re willing to seize the moment.” In the same time frame he pointed to the problem, (with yet another familiar “log in his eye” denial) “the Republicans just don’t want to negotiate,” implying they needed to learn.
Now put his denials together with his 2006 comments: “We could stabilize America now if the Republicans would stop foolish negotiations—which occur as I said earlier when we have a debt problem and a leadership problem.” It is clear Obama is talking about himself, secretly telling Americans, “Seize the moment and stop me from continuously running up the debt and being a weak leader. Stop me from kicking the can of debt down the road.” This in a nutshell is how the super intelligence with its deeper moral compass speaks through “log in the eye” denials accompanied by direct or implied corrections. As always, super intelligence wisdom prevails. Here it’s the only logical way to stabilize a nation destabilized by debt.
Our super intelligence is capable of looking into the future to see where our misguided decisions will lead, all the while anticipating consequences. For example, Obama said in his Inaugural address: “The question we ask today is not whether our government is too big or too small, but whether it works…whether it helps families find jobs…Where the answer is no, programs will end. And those of us who manage the public’s dollars will be held to account— to spend wisely…”
In another “log in the eye” fashion, Obama’s mention of a government that’s “too big” is a prediction that his government would be “too big.
His prediction was chillingly accurate. His is a government that spends too much and does not hold itself accountable.
Now America must do its part and hold Barack Obama accountable— just as he recommended.
