When the president was first elected 2008, we were involved in two wars: one which was winding down and the other which was the “right war” according to Barack Obama and other liberals.
This was the war in Afghanistan, because that is where the Taliban was entrenched. The other war, Iraq, was not considered the “right war,” because “no weapons of mass destruction were found.” Liberals, in the beginning, were in favor until no “yellow cake” from Niger was found and some “voted for it, before they were against it.”
Now we have President Obama, again, “leading from behind” and in charge. We are backing out of Iraq and being run out of Afghanistan by the “Tin Pot” leader Hamid Karzai. Both of these wars were on track to be won, until Obama became president. Most of the world respected President Bush, in my eyes, and I feel that cannot be said of President Obama at this stage in his presidency.
These past few years we have drawn a “red line” in the sand time and time again, but our president continues to tell us that is not what he has said and that we have misunderstood him. In the latest issue in Crimea, Putin had no regard for the warnings of economic retaliation put forth by our president.
How can our European and Central European allies trust our U.S. government to back them up? Our president is known as a “paper tiger” by our enemies. How can Israel, our longtime ally, have any trust in us? Remember the doctor in Pakistan who helped our president take out Osama bin Laden? He remains in prison for that help. Why would anyone help us with that fate in store for them?
