Time and again I hear real folks say, "Are we insane? Do people really believe the crap coming out of the Obama Administration and the mainstream press (ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, NY Times, Washington Post, etc.)?" What crap? Crap like, "A small mob was protesting a really bad video made in the USA outside the American Libyan Consulate and it turned ugly when the small mob lost control and took their weapons (everyone in Libya has weapons) and murdered our Ambassador and three others despite the heroic efforts of the Libyan security guards to fight the mob off. These brave Libyan security guards then carried the Ambassadors body to the hospital but it was too late." None other than Susan Rice, our esteemed leader in the United Nations was putting out that crap this weekend. Obviously she was auditioning for Hillary Clinton's servitude when Hillary retires soon to become the loving wife and mother AGAIN. Gosh the awful price she has paid to serve her country and the time it has taken from her family life provide the perfect example of those who dedicate their lives to Liberal Causes like destroying out nation.
The SAD TRUTH is many Americans agree with the Obama strategy to 'release or disconnect from our obligations, pledges, and entanglements' around the world. These completely fabricated stories do support these people's hopes and wishes (besides they will say all politicians lie when confronted with the facts). And trust me, if the facts on these murders ever come public no one will be able to defend the lies that are being spewed.
This posting isn't about the details of the latest Obama fiasco. It is about the BIG PICTURE. In other postings we have discussed Obama's driven commitment to diminish, if not to destroy, the USA culturally, economically, and internationally. How does he plan to accomplish this internationally in only 8 years? By DISENGAGEMENT. Many Americans are understandably weary. Who isn't weary of the mess Obama has made of our foreign affairs and world leadership?
What do the polling numbers say about likely voter's views regarding the Middle East? The numbers according to Rasmussen: "The majority (58%) of all voters continue to believe the United States should leave things alone in the Islamic world. Twenty-five percent (25%) disagree and think America should do more to encourage the growth of democracy in Islamic nations. Sixteen percent (16%) are not sure. This mirrors findings in surveys for the past 18 months as protests during the so-called 'Arab Spring' led to the overthrow of longtime dictators in Egypt, Libya and Tunisia."
The current Libyan mess also highlighted a debate about free speech in the US. Rasmussen polled this issue as well, " Voters overwhelmingly rate protecting freedom of speech more important than not offending other nations and cultures despite claims that the latest outbreak of anti-American violence in the Middle East is due to a YouTube video that mocks Islam. Seventy-two percent (72%) of Likely U.S. Voters believe it is more important for the United States to guarantee freedom of speech. Only 15% consider it more important for the United States to make sure that nothing is done to offend other nations and cultures. Thirteen percent(13%) are undecided."
And what about the constant messaging on mainstream media that Americans give Obama a 10-15 point lead in the polls over Romney regarding his ability to lead our foreign affairs? The truth, "Voters give a slight edge to President Obama over Mitt Romney – 48% to 45% - when asked who they trust more when it comes to handling events in the Middle East. But there’s a wide partisan difference of opinion on the question. Eighty-eight percent (88%) of Democrats have more confidence in the president, while 82% of Republicans and a plurality (47%) of voters not affiliated with either of the major parties express more faith in Romney. Forty-four percent (44%) of all voters give good or excellent marks to the way the Obama administration has responded to the situation in Libya where the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans were murdered last week. Thirty-four percent (34%) rate the administration’s performance as poor. Again, predictably, while 74% of Democrats give the Obama administration positive marks for its handling of the Libya crisis, just 18% of GOP voters and 37% of unaffiliated agree." Predictably, 74% of the Dems were favorable? My gosh, our people are dead because of the way Obama has handled Libya!
What does this all mean? The fact that many Americans are tired of losing our precious young people in a part of the world that shows every sign of hating us and our way of life is very understandable. The question of whether Americans want to leave this part of the world alone or support Obama's Arab Spring movement to democracy (Muslim Brotherhood) gives voters a choice of two evils. This is exactly the choice we have if Obama is re-elected. I personally do not want one more single soldier to lose his or her life in support of Obama's DISENGAGEMENT STRATEGY. I SAY BRING THEM HOME TODAY IF OBAMA STAYS IN OFFICE!
Obama pulled out of Iraq on George Bush's announced schedule without insisting the US must have an influential role in insuring our efforts there were not wasted. Bush would have never pulled out under these conditions. Obama announced a surge in Afghanistan along with A DISENGAGEMENT DATE of December 31, 2014. This was an invitation to all Afghans to return to the control of the Taliban on January 1, 2015. Over 50 young soldiers have been murdered by "Afghan friendly terrorists" in the enforcement of Obama's strategy to hand security over the the Afghan's. It doesn't get any "stupider" than this. Obama's DISENGAGED leadership encouraging the terrorists movements in Egypt, Libya, Syria, and every other Middle East and Northern African nation has allowed Muslim Brotherhood control. Obama has DISENGAGED from every American ally in the Middle East by using an idiot pitch of calling them "Dictators who were suppressing their people. The majority of many of these nations are radical Muslims who are intent on killings all infidels. As stated before, they are a majority of wolves voting with sheep on what they will have for dinner. All Christians are sheep to these people.
And now Obama has DISENGAGED from Israel. He claims, "he has their backs" and will keep Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons, and yet he refuses to take any action to deter Iran. It is clear Obama plans to just get re-elected and wait it out (in many cases to DISENGAGE is just to wait it out) as Iran joins the new "Obama World". A world where, through his re-distribution plan, every nation has the same number of nuclear weapons. As he told us with the famous open mike, when he is re-elected, "he will have more flexibility". The flexibility he whispers is to disarm the US, to weaken any anti-missile shields, and to spread weapons to smaller nations around "Obama World".
The ironic truth is when the world is in economic turmoil and there are large evil forces wanting to destroy Christian and free world leaders Obama doesn't have to do much at all. The truth is Obama isn't capable of doing much at all. He can't fix anything. He can only break things. He can't engage in solutions. HE CAN, AND IS, DISENGAGING. When the only good and strong leader of the free world disengages, our young people always pay the price. Whether it is Pearl Harbor, Normandy, Viet Nam, or Libya, our precious young folks pay the price for appeasement and disengagement.
Every able-bodied, and able-minded, American must spread the word. No one can say, "We were not warned." No one can say, "We didn't realize things were that bad at the time." No one can say, "I just didn't want to get involved in politics or religion." We can't say it, because our grandchildren will not buy our excuses if Obama is elected to a second term.
This election is very "win able".
ARE YOU ENGAGED?
