So tell me again what the President is trying to accomplish? Something about punishing Syria? Yeah, that has to be it. Obama was the guy who explained how awful it was that the Syrian government had used poison gas on its own people and he was the guy who, in effect, told us all that he was going to “punish Syria” WITH or WITHOUT Congressional approval—then walked that back and asked for a Congressional vote—then played 18 holes with Biden, flew to the G20, didn’t take ownership of the “red line” challenge AND THEN went on national TV and asked Congress to put the voting thing on hold---again.
This is the same guy who one year ago disappeared on the evening of September 11th while the American Embassy in Benghazi was attacked and four Americans were murdered. He told Hillary Clinton and Leon Panetta to handle the situation and then just disappeared. He flew to a fund raiser in Las Vegas the next day while the dead Americans assumed room temperature 4000 miles away. He’s the same guy who orchestrated the now famous fictional anti-Islam video that supposedly was the cause for the Benghazi attack. He’s the same guy who’s always going to “get to the bottom” of this issue or that, but never does.
He’s the same guy who, by the time his term is over, will have robbed this country of trillions and produced a generation of lost souls.
Given all that I can see why Muslims don’t like the United States of America. We the people, morons that we are, elect morons who constantly meddle in the affairs of others, attack and kill in the name of the common good and attempt to dictate terms and policy—all the while living the lie that all is well here. It’s not.
Our elected leaders kill with drones and occupy countries that don’t think the way we do. We send our nation’s best and brightest into the fire, and then insure they can’t win by enforcing ridiculous rules of engagement. And then, when our wounded heroes come home maimed and mentally damaged our government doesn’t see fit to support them. And they do even less for their families. Look it up.
We hire guys like George Bush, Nancy Pelosi, John McCain, Harry Reid, Hillary Clinton and John Kerry to speak on our behalf and prattle on as if they are the solution, when in reality, they are the problem. The Washington power brokers are all “the same guy.” And you and I put them there.
I’m embarrassed by those we’ve chosen to lead. I’m appalled at the doings of this administration, and those before it, and the fact that you and I are no more represented or protected than those poor Syrians who were poisoned to death a few weeks ago. Those Syrians died badly and without just cause.
But aren’t we, the American taxpayer, in the same boat? Our government spends and spends and regulates and regulates to the point that we’re doing well to make ends meet. They pass laws that are designed to punish and financially constipate the American businessman. Aren’t we being poisoned by our own government? Aren’t we be strangled with red tape?
We write the checks that power the government and we have zero to show for it. We tell our elected officials what we want and they do just the opposite. And there are those of us who watch in amazement as this president continues to build his legacy on one lie after another and not be held accountable by the media, or even the opposition party. We the people live in the constant fear of being labeled a “racist” should we not fall in lock step with the current administration’s way of thinking. But quietly we know that this man is not fit to lead. And political correctness---and a lapdog press---are all that keeps him in office.
Stupid is as stupid does. And it seems like we have a bumper crop of stupid here in America.
Remember those who perished on 9/11/01 and 9/11/12—and those they left behind. Someone has to remember them. It’s obvious those currently in office have long since forgotten.
