One Capricious President
And here I thought President Obama didn’t want to spike the football! If his trip to Ground Zero and his publicized trip to Fort Campbell, speech and all, are not spiking the football, I honestly don’t know what spiking a football looks like. President Obama’s celebrating, no doubt, is irritating Al Qaeda and pro-Bin Laden Muslims to no end. Why does President Obama not show the pictures of a dead Bin Laden (calling it a mere trophy), and then proceed to run victory laps around the country? It’s puzzling unless you think about what kind of ball he is spiking. It is true that any president, especially a president running for re-election, would take credit for the killing. But President Obama is downright capricious. Showing the pictures would have enraged an already enraged terrorist community, but the added benefit of showing the photos is to instill fear and hopeless in their hearts as well! How does it benefit the United States for Obama to have such public revelry? It, too, enrages the enemy. If anything, I am amazed that he released the fact that it was Seal team 6 that carried out the mission. Isn’t that horribly dangerous to our troops? Doesn’t that put a big target over their barriers and training grounds? After all, in this age of Goggle Map, their location is public knowledge. The ball he is spiking is his re-election campaign. For that, he will put a target on Seal Team 6.
He says one thing and then turns around and does the opposite.
This has been the case on so many things: he promised the most transparent administration in history and then, literally changes the locks on the meeting rooms (I still reel over this one) that locked Republicans from the Healthcare debate. He promised the end to lobbyists in Washington and then invites the head of powerful unions to secret meetings that result in not only excluding the Unions from the cost of Obama-care, but also hidden legislation deep in the bill that actually transfers hundreds of millions of dollars straight into the bank accounts of the same Unions. He promised a new era of cooperation, but has led the Democratic party in the most divisive rhetoric I have ever heard. He promised over and over again that by the second half of his presidency, he would cut the deficit in half (“at a minimum”), and yet has spent more and raised the deficit more than all prior presidents combined! He promised to dismantle Guantanamo Bay and stood against water boarding. Guantanamo Bay remains, strong as ever, and the KEY piece of evidence: the identity of Bin Laden’s courier, obtained via water boarding, was used to destroy UBL.
Has this president no shame at all? And have Americans become so terrified of being labeled a ‘racist’ that they simply forget all the promises, so capriciously broken? When we watched Joe the Plumber be vilified, be investigated by the IRS, and suffer from a relentless media campaign against him, perhaps we became afraid of speaking up. I know that this has been the case with me. For so many years, I was downright afraid of speaking my mind to my friends (mostly liberal here in Washington State). I actually worried that they would stop being my friends. And guess what? They did stop. It was painful, but led me to start this blog. We are experiencing a tyranny of the few. They have the bigger mouths and are rabid. But we need to call this President to the mat on these blatant, hypocritical actions or he will win a second term.
