n one Arab capital, a senior official pulled out a map of Syria and Iraq. Drawing an arc with his finger from Raqqa province in northern Syria to Anbar province in western Iraq, he said, “They will control this territory. Al Qaeda is building safe havens and training camps here. Don’t the Americans care?”
Our president doesn’t seem to. Iraq is at risk of falling to a radical Islamic terror group and Mr. Obama is talking climate change. Terrorists take control of more territory and resources than ever before in history, and he goes golfing. He seems blithely unaware, or indifferent to the fact, that a resurgent al Qaeda presents a clear and present danger to the United States of America.
This was a good article, but rather than place full blame with Obama, I place it with the American people who tire quickly of the latest thing.
This country turned on Bush like he was the devil incarnate for the decisions he made because war was hard.
And now, it’s Obama’s turn. He is quickly turning to hash while doing exactly what “the people” requested of him.
The people chose not to vet him. They chose not to question him. They chose to believe his every word until (maybe) now. And so we have a president who cares more about something, (I don’t know what), than he does about this country. We are treated like mushrooms kept in the dark and then asked to trust the government because we let it be so. Bush was not immune and Obama took it three levels up. Hillary will be worse.
The blame belongs to all of those who not only voted for the man based on nothing, but also to all of those who voted a second time for him based on his horrible first term. If the lying, hiding, word playing, dismissive Hillary Clinton wins the next election the blame will fall on all who voted for her because a) she’s a woman and b) she seems strong.
Politics is a pain in the patooty to try to follow. Real information is tragically hard to come by. People’s “guts” told them to vote for Obama so you can’t trust that even. Good luck out there but we have the government we deserve.
