The Obama Amateur Show

A Column by the Editor

web posted September 2, 2013

COLUMN It is sad that the World's Superpower, the United States of America, is being laughed at around the world as we have a President that does not lead and only wants to give speeches. President Obama has had countless times to lead the nation and help shape the world stage. He inherited a stable Middle East with two wars basically won. Because of Obama's determination to bring down America, we now have the Middle East on fire and Syria using WMD's in the form of poison gas at will.

Egypt, one of our strongest allies in the area was left out to suffer a civil war where radical Islamist, the Muslim Brotherhood - praise by Obama - taking control and ruling Egypt's Constitution worthless and began imposing radical Islamism, which prompted another civil war.

Libya was under control and under pressure of the US, but that was not good enough. Obama made sure he supported radical Muslims taking over. A civil war that is still underway with the radicals winning. Don't forget the 9/11 attack by Al-queda in Bengazi that left four Americans dead. Remember, Sec. of State Hillary Clinton said when asked about our fallen heroes, "What does it matter?" 

What did Obama do? He gave speeches, blames it on a YouTube video and no one has ever been held accountable. Obviously, dead Americans "don't matter" to Obama.

Syria fell into their own civil war, with Obama "leading from behind" again, and has been taken over by terrorists leading the war. Not that the leader of Syria is any better. However, after Obama drew a "red line" on the use of WMD's (shipped to Syria from Iraq before the US invasion), he did nothing as the reported attacks were broadcast to the world.

Does that scare anyone? It sure didn't scare Syrian President Assad who has used his WMD's not once or twice, but now a third time killing close to 2,000 women, children and men.

Obama told the world he was going to act and strike Syria in days for crossing the "red line". And as the world watched, Obama blinked. He now says the wants Congress to act. Again, all so Obama can not be seen as "leading", just giving speeches.

With the entire Middle East in civil wars, Obama's lack of leadership and determination have proven he is a liar and a weak President. We are the laughingstock of the world.

Way to go Democrats, Obama fiddles while the Middle East burns. Hope you are happy. Get ready for WW3. A gift from our Nobel Peace Prize winning President who started the whole thing.
