Remember when Barack Obama dropped his best John Wayne on us and "vowed to nab" Osama bin Laden? Well, I don't want to call him a liar just yet . . . not about this, anyway. Who knows, maybe he suspects bin Laden is underground posing as a key grip on the Tonight Show. Whatever his mindset about the most wanted man in America, there can no longer be any doubt that his concept of a War on Terror makes Neville Chamberlain look like General Patton without the ivory.
- Announced the closure of Guantanamo (Yemen, the official base for al-Qaida activity in the Arabian Peninsula has already made it clear they expect 100 of the current criminal Yemenis inmates to be sent home)
- Declined to prosecute the mastermind behind the USS Cole bombing (echoes of Clinton refusing to prosecute Osama himself)
- Closed all overseas CIA interrogation centers
- Appointed an attorney general and Justice Department officials who oppose "enhanced" interrogation techniques in terror investigations
- Granted Al Arabiya television the very first news organization presidential interview
- Called Fatah Party Leader and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas on his first phone contact with any foreign leader (but he did give Britain 25 DVDs from his favorite aisle at Blockbuster)
- Allocated an additional $20.3 million to Gaza with no strings attached, even after the U.N. Relief and Works Agency announced they were suspending aid to Gaza because Hamas just seizes what they send (oh, and we know how much Hamas and their followers appreciate the $40 million that Bush was already sending to Gaza by the way they burn our flag with added care)
- Recently praised Iran's efforts and culture . . . much to the hardy guffaw of Iranians
When Joe Biden said that Barack Obama wasn't ready to lead it may well have been the most honest thing he said during his campaign -- or perhaps lifetime. Consider this question: why does the President of the United States need to bring a teleprompter to press conferences? The fact is that this guy is in so far over his head that he can't even see the life preserver his adoring public keeps tossing out to him. And it shows in a dangerous way with the naive approach he takes towards terrorism.
Terrorists and the regimes who sponsor them will never be our friends. These virgin-seeking vermin maintain their power by sustaining hatred toward the west. How could they possibly wield their authority derived from hate without a super villain like America? They will continue to demonize us in their attempt to destroy us. And they certainly aren't going to listen to a president who supports individual decisions that they forbid like homosexuality and pork (though I'm pretty sure they mean the edible kind).
I'm a little surprised the Chosen One doesn't understand this since he used "demonizing the opponent" during his own rise to power. He talked "change" but never defined what he was going to do. It was a campaign of change from those he defined as bad: "George Bush is bad so elect me." He even used it during the Democratic primary when he and his team successfully defined Hillary Clinton as a woman married to a racist.
The problem is that Obama doesn't seem to be able to recognize a real enemy even when they're staring him in the face (or crashing planes into our buildings, or bombing our ships, or attacking our embassies . . . you get the picture, even if he doesn't). And though his pretty prompted words got him elected, they won't work on the radical extremists who want to see us exterminated.
