Mr. President, PLEASE Return from OZ, or Mars, or wherever your mind is currently at. Really successful people surround themselves with people of knowledge. They don’t do it to spend hordes of money. They do it to have the best information from those who have expertise so they have a greater chance of being successful.
Mr. Obama loves to convene “commissions” and “committees” of these “knowledgeable” people… and then totally ignore them.
He ignores his NSA briefing. By his own admission, he almost never reads them. When he read something about ISIS gaining ground, orders were given to dumb-down the reports so Americans would not know how these guys operated. I believe he didn’t think they would really amount to anything at the time.
During the debate with Romney, you’ll recall President Obama saying Russia was not a problem. He even quipped with something like, “The 1980’s called. They want their Russian fear-mongering back.” He was just sure that they were not a threat and that only Al Qaeda was, but even it was really no longer a big threat.
The President brought together a “jobs” dream team to help strengthen the jobs situation in America. He appointed Jeffrey R. Immelt, the Chairman and CEO of General Electric (GE). He may has well have appointed Attila the Hun to the UN Human Rights Commission (they have also done that several times!) Immelt, has moved most of the manufacturing and jobs for GE overseas, yes, to a foreign country. He is supposed to help rebuild America’s job market… not another country’s! He and the president set up for a great recovery. We still have 92 million Americans of the work (a RECORD high out) and over 72% of all new jobs are part time. Just what we need, right?!
Recently in the wake of gun violence he brought together a group of law enforcement officials to the White House. Not one was a pro-gun official. No conservative sheriffs or chiefs of police. Who did he choose? Mostly policy makers and legislators. Who better to help figure out how to deter gun violence than people who aren’t involved with it day to day, right? It doesn’t make any sense.
But again, The Prez, after saying he doesn’t have the ability to do it alone through executive order, is working on an executive order for gun control. That must have been OZ-speak. Like the whole “if you like your doctor” and the classic “I can’t act on immigration alone” and then did it anyway. Lie after lie after lie.
Anyone see a pattern here?
John Kerry during his presidential run said, “we have to beat these guys because they are such liars!” HELLO! “Those guys” need to look in the mirror, take off the political blinders, and see what they are doing to this country!
How about we just enforce the law and live by the constitution, for starters? Stop making it easier for so many to break the law and skirt jail. Just enforce the laws on the books.
Only a little over 22% of Americans support the Iran nuclear deal. The President is pushing for it like his life depends on it. So is this deal for the American people or for Obama? Because he thinks it’s right. And if he thinks it’s the best, it must be, no matter what other security and Middle East experts say. So much for representative government!
He promised to strengthen relationships with our allies. FAIL. We have one ally left, and that’s ONLY until Iran has the capability of launching their nuke at Israel. Even the English prime minister recently asked Mr. Obama to stop ignoring the reality that it is EXTREMEST Muslims currently causing all the chaos.
The Saudis, Iranians, Syrians, and more are running to Russia for protection and alliances. WHY? Because Obama has strengthened the US position with our allies so much so that they are now CERTAIN we can’t be relied on. What Obama has shown them is they can count on us to set a goal and then abandon them.
He is now looking for a way to get out of Afghanistan. Why? To leave another vacuum for ISIS and the Russians?
Mr. Prez, it’s not war-mongering to say we will defend our allies and then actually do it.
Instead of defending our enemies, Iran, Muslim Brotherhood, ISIS (who you NEVER bombed) and others looking to kill us, you should start defending those who would have stood with us but now can’t trust us because we haven’t been there for them at all!
Why don’t you come out of the Land of OZ and back to reality. Protect American men and women like you said you would, help our Veterans like you promised, and promote real full-time jobs instead of trying to figure out how to get a part-timer $15/hour.
Shouldn’t we take care of our own FIRST? Get them on solid ground, then we can help others get solid.
We’re waiting for you over here in the real world! So come on back from OZ!
