Both domestically and internationally, this President has screwed up EVERYTHING!
On the international front, his attempt to appease and open up a “new dialogue” with the Middle East, beginning with his Cairo speech, has backfired big time and only served to perpetuate the image of America as a “paper tiger”. Obama has been terribly inconsistent with his foreign policy and has never consistently conveyed American principles. On one hand he allows the military to kill UBL, and green lights drone strikes on other suspected terrorists, but on the other hand, he refuses to stand strong against the Muslim Brotherhood, Assad and Ahmadinejad, bows to Saudi Kings, and withdraws support from Arab allies like Mubarek and King Hussein in Jordan. His mixed messages has everyone confused and creates a perception of incompetence and weakness and we all know that Islamists prey on weakness, and unfortunately we are seeing the results of that now with the slaughter of our Libyan Ambassador and the other three Americans. This current ME uprising is terribly reminiscent of Tehran in 1979, and I believe the voters will act in kind come November.
On the domestic front, we all know too well the agony of his economic policies, and he has NO PLAN, other than the same going forward. His most recent budgets called for trillion dollar deficits for as far as the eye could see, and did not receive even one single vote from any member of his own party. There is no better example of failed leadership. The most recent jobs report showed that for every person that did find a job, four people simply gave up and this is just unacceptable. We can do so much better. Some question whether or not we can afford four more years of this failed President. I assert that we can’t afford four more months. For the sake of this nation, I call for him to resign effective immediately.
The recent events in Egypt and Libya can only be considered as another direct attack on America, and again, our President is leading from behind. New revelations today support the notion that Obama is detached and out of his depth, as is his team around him, and his minions in the media. First of all we had the press release from the US Embassy in Egypt which was evidently not approved of by the White House as they distanced themselves in the beginning but then ultimately supported. However, considering that the press release is essentially an apology for our First Amendment rights, the White House should have disowned it, but needless to say, it’s obvious there is little coordination from the top. Secondly, it’s reported that the crowd was chanting “hey Obama, we are all Osama’s” which may be a direct condemnation of the reckless manner in which Obama and Biden constantly boast of killing OBL, like some school yard children would do. It was also learned today that the detached President hasn’t attended a PDB in the last week or so, and maybe had he attended those meetings, he may of learned of some of this in advance.
The Arab Spring has turned out to be a nightmare, and with Egypt getting more and more confident, Israel is starting to feel the heat, so what does Obama do? He tells Bibi Netanyahu that he doesn’t have the time to meet with him. He does have time however for Letterman and Beyonce, but not for one of our most trusted allies. How’s that for leadership? Folks, four Americans have been killed as a result of a muddled and apologetic foreign policy on behalf of our President and this is unacceptable. We deserve better.
And I feel fine…
