There are a couple of commenters on the thread following the piece that I am about to segue` into from Ben Stein in American Spectator, that have some valid points regarding the degradation of the United States under the absolute disaster that is Barack Hussein Obama and his surrogates. A nightmare presidency indeed. The first:
“I certainly do not mean to be rude, meddling with a national issue, but on the other hand, our welfare and well-being in Europe depend on who is in charge of your country. We’ve had bad feelings for a few years now, witnessing the betrayal of former ComBloc nations like Poland and Georgia, with the cancellation of the promised early warning radars and defensive missiles; the absence of reaction after the spectacular mass murder of the entire Polish administration during the anniversary of Katyn’s killing fields (you’ve got to be European to understand that that was no unfortunate crash); the total passivity (or lack of resolve) of the Obama administration regarding a ton of international issues in Syria, Mali, Somalia, Iran, North Korea, Venezuela, Ukraine, etal.
You have a president who so thoroughly cooked his biography with the complicity of the media and very powerful and influential people, that you just don’t know anything about him, and no one seems to care. The funny thing is when you ask any African-born Frenchie (legal or illegal) about your prez, they unanimously consider him as being African; they believe, wait, they KNOW he was born in Kenya and he’s a Muslim; they give you plenty of arguments unheard of in USA, about his childhood; his grandmother who never traveled outside Kenya but was present for his birth; about the common knowledge about all this, not only in Kenya but in the whole Muslim world.
I repeat, I do not mean to be rude, because it is none of my business but you seem to be in a state of denial re your prez, disregarding disturbing signs like kow-towing before the Sheik of Saudia, treating Israel like a terror state, or ordering NASA to reach out to Islam! Imagine for one moment “W” making this request. He would have been crucified by your media, and rightfully so. Anyway, unless the Constitution is amended, Monsieur Ben’s nightmare will be over in a couple of years but you may never know the truth about your prez and the full extent of the damages that were done to your country.”
And the second comment on the nightmare presidency: “The Indoctrinated Public School Product of the Great Society has come of Voting Age. So all young people are Obama Voters. That tells you all you need to know about the future of this nation. All minorities and immigrants are Obama Voters, so Cognitive Mature Adults are now outnumbered here. Just about everyone who is other than White Straight Adult Male is an Obama Voter in the name of “Diversity” and “Multiculturalism” and “Tolerance”. Our people are on balance stupid and dependent, and do not understand that Tolerance of Intolerance is not Tolerance.
The America of Truman, Eisenhower, and Reagan that won WWII and cowed the USSR is no more. The USA is stepping off the World Stage to allow the Adults of the World, like Putin, Netanyahu, the Chinese, N. Korea, Iran take care of things. We will have to see how that works out, but I am glad not to be a Young Person. I do not feel sorry for them, hope it works for them, but it is unavoidable that they voted for this and so they shall have what they voted for.”
Which leads us into Ben Stein’s concern …
This is a bad morning. I was greeted by a headline in the New York Times that said Defense Secretary “Chuck Mullet” Hagel was planning to submit a budget to Congress to cut the size of the military to a level not seen since 1940, before the U.S. entered World War II.
The article went on to say that the Pentagon realized that this would be an inadequate force for even very small wars and certainly would not allow the U.S. to police the world and keep control of contingencies like a North Korean attack on the South or a Chinese attack on Japan or an Iranian assault on Saudi Arabia or a Russian invasion of the Ukraine.
The Defense Department officials further said that because U.S. forces would be stretched so thin, the U.S. could not win wars quickly and there would be more casualties in any future war.
So, in other words, the President (of course it’s not Hagel…he’s just a bobble head for Obama and his ultra-leftists) is deliberately disarming America to the point where he cannot guarantee his ability to defend the nation.
Now, my wife says this is just plain treason. I don’t know if she’s right because the Constitution has a fairly strict definition of treason. But it is surely the grossest kind of betrayal of country. This kind of action is the kind taken by a man who hates the country of which he is president. To knowingly lay bare the life of American fighting men to our enemies is something a lot like murder.
In a way, it stuns me. In a way, it horrifies me.
A nightmare presidency Continues…
