A bump in the road
Bumps in the road!!!
According to our President, the turmoil in the Middle East is just another “bump in the road”. I want to repeat this.....just another bump in the road! WOW!!
The violent death of our Ambassador Chris Stevens and two former Seals are just a “bumps-in-the-road”.
The 2,139 deaths of our United States Military personnel in the Middle East, since 2009, are just merely “bumps-in-the-road”.
Ahmadinejad’s strong statements that Israel MUST be eliminated are yet, just another “bump-in-the-road”.
These are the words that Obama has used to describe the situation in the Middle East.
"A bump in the road"....
We must get some leadership in the White House!
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has recently requested a few minutes of Obama’s time, to discuss the strong comments of a potential attack on them by Iran. Apparently, Mr. President cannot find the time. He has managed to squeeze in a few minutes to go on the David Letterman show, and the View. He is still finding time to party with Beyonce and Jay-Z.
I guess it is quite clear WHERE his priorities lie.
Since this President has taken the oath of office, he has only attended less than HALF of the Presidential Daily Briefings. With the world in turmoil, our POTUS has the obligation to know exactly of the international intelligence that has been gathered to secure any warranted threats and sensitive international situations that are among us.
Apparently, those briefings are just another “bump-in-the-road” that is keeping him from racking up more hours on the golf course. He has logged in twice as many hours on the golf course in less than 4 years than the previous administration has logged in in its eight years of office.
Funny enough, that Tony Podesta, a well-known Democratic lobbyist with strong ties to the Obama White House, is behind the “We Are Golf”, a coalition of golfing organizations that has sent letters to Republicans asking them to cut out the criticism of Obama’s golfing habits….for they must be creating some serious “bumps-in-the-road”.
Peace through strength
The bottom line is that there seems to be some disparity of priorities regarding what is urgent and significant of this administration pertaining to our National Security. Normally, I would say that such talk is just political mumbo-jumbo, trying to find some sticks and stones for some political edge. But when it comes to our safety and wellbeing as American citizens and securing our liberties as a Nation, I think we are facing MORE than just another “bump-in-the-road”.
For me personally, I say it is time a leader stands up, on National TV, and tell the world, we will NO LONGER tolerate one more act of violence against any American or its allies. IF there is, all financial aid WILL be cut off and we WILL prepare for military action. Peace through strength is not just a slogan, but a new doctrine, that believes that America's national power must be preserved to secure our freedoms and liberties, and we will utilize it to its full force to maintain this right.
This is yet my strongest and most convicted rant to date.
