"Was all this due to incompetence or nihilism?"

Comrade and author Matt Bracken shared this post on FB by Victor Davis Hanson: Obama: Nihilist or Just Incompetent?

A great summary of the Obama administration with one year left, including a review of foreign policy fumbles and a list of "Three things so far have saved Obama’s otherwise unfortunate tenure."

. . . Obamism is proving finite. Yes, this is the Obama era of intolerant imposition of gay marriage by court fiat, the selling of fetal limbs by Planned Parenthood, Climate Change McCarthyism, Black Lives Matter / Hands Up, Don’t Shoot mythologies, “Punish Our Enemies” ethnic smearing, state-ministry journalism, and Sanctuary City neo-Confederate nullification. But in the process, Obama has nearly destroyed the Democratic Party — and all but turned it over either to a veritable crook and has-been or a 73-year-old self-described socialist. He lost both houses of Congress. The legislatures and governorships are overwhelmingly Republican. He turned off millions of working-class old-time Reagan Democrats. His new paradigm — demagogue minorities to vote en bloc in record numbers by any means necessary and screw those turned off by his separatist rhetoric — is probably not transferrable to other Democratic candidates.
As a bonus, Professor Hanson includes this white flag image from PJ Media. 

This one is mine:
