Observing the Blitzkrieg: the Barack Obama way
By Paul A. Ibbetson
October 16, 2009

In the midst of the fight over whether or not the United States should, or should not, turn our medical system into a socialistic bread line, or whether the administration should heed the request for additional troops in Afghanistan, Barack Obama feels compelled to add to his strategic plate, the gay question. One could say that Obama's recent move to change the military's standing "don't ask, don't tell" policy for homosexuals serving in the armed forces has been sparked by the recent unrest of strong Obama political backers, such as the powerful gay advocacy group Human Rights Campaign (HRC), an organization that wishes to force total public support for the gay agenda by targeting, among others, America's youth. However, this would probably be a case of missing the forest for all the trees. There is something bigger going on here.

Amid the chaos and turmoil that has accompanied the reign of the Obama Administration, there has been tendencies to lose focus on the important factors that have (and continue to) run the administration's game plan for pushing their initiatives forward. I believe this unique Obama Blitzkrieg strategy is worthy of observation and analysis — and by understanding it, we may also understand why it will ultimately lead to Obama's defeat.

The shocking first step for all those who followed Barack Obama for the "hope/change" ride is that there has never been a President in U.S. history that has owed so much to so few. Apart from the Blitzkrieg Obama strategy for success, but as important, is the growing number of converts leaving the camp of the Obama "yes we cans" who have come to the conclusion that Obama is now fully catering in policy and procedure to the radical left. What gets lost among the myriad of affronts to the survival of American tradition and economic viability is the strategy by which the Obama administration will try to win the battle for the radical left. The lens of observation will now be focused in this direction.

Contrary to most administrations, President Barack Obama has shown little interest in seeing a strategic policy shift come to fruition before implementing a new campaign for the re-shaping of the country. Instead, Obama has implemented the "all-out" strike of the Blitzkrieg. In World War II, the military forces under Adolf Hitler used the all out (air, land, sea, etc), converging strike tactic of the Blitzkrieg, to overwhelm the enemy and force a quick but bloody surrender of countries they wished to conquer. President Obama now uses this tactic against the American people and, as with the Nazis, Obama is likely to enjoy the fruits — but inevitably suffer the consequences — of such a tactic.

First the fruits: the Blitzkrieg moves with great swiftness and, in the case of the damaging policies of this administration, when opposing forces are mustered, the administration has created another equally important battle front that divides opposing groups on where to put resources and efforts. Meanwhile, the Obama Blitzkrieg machine moves like a panzer in high gear on to the next battlefront. In the short term, the swift and frightening movement of the Blitzkrieg adds an air of un-believability. As with those who watched the movements of the Nazi war machine so many years ago, even the political sages of our time, who foresaw the true intent of Barack Obama from every possible angle, must admit in their heart of hearts some true moments of shock at the rapid and multiple fronts of attack on the heart of our country by the Obama war machine that have taken place in such as short span of time.

While this has been devastating to watch, it offers a substantial ray of hope. The Blitzkrieg is an all out effort and missteps in judgment and strategy open the door for huge defeats. There is also very limited opportunity for stealth within this strategy. In fact, it will become more and more difficult for Obama to sneak around the calamity he has created. Yes, I believe that this option is gone for the president as he has firmly laid out his own smoke trail of carnage for all to see.

President Obama's intentions for this country are now so overt that they are even shaking many of the befuddled "hope-changers" back to a painful state of consciousness and to a growing mainstream of opposition, or what I like to call an "Allied Force." While the future of this country and the fate of Barack Obama as a political figure are not yet written, the president is certainly using a strategic plan of attack that has ultimately failed in the past.
