Presidential Priorities

The greatest responsibility of the President of the United States is to serve as Commander in Chief. The current occupant of the White House has shown himself painfully short of capable in that role. Barack Obama had absolutely no experience related to the military or national security prior to his ascension to this position and he has shown no signs that he understands how to lead our military or our country.


He has let our troops in Afghanistan down by failing to heed the urgent call from the commander he appointed for reinforcements. It is closing in on four months since he was told in no uncertain terms that the situation there was dire and our forces were in jeopardy. He has taken the counsel of fixers and political hacks over those of his entire military chain of command. He has focused his energies on remaking our vibrant, free capitalist democracy into a socialist paradise, while ignoring his self-proclaimed, campaign battle cry, war of necessity as a distraction.

He was wrong in virtually every pronouncement about Iraq and had we followed his sage advice we would have ceded a victory to al Qaeda and Iran. His website had to be scrubbed of all his errors and bad advice about that conflict once he won the job. Now we watch as he grudgingly takes up the cause of our men and women in combat, and painfully dithers as to their fate. His public agonizing has given aid and comfort to our enemies as they can see just what level of commitment our leader has to the cause. In a battle of hearts and minds, President Obama has shown our friends and allies as well that he will do as little as possible and forswears even saying he seeks victory.

We recently suffered the greatest terror attack on US soil since 9/11. An Islamic extremist cravenly attacked our soldiers at a medical facility. It is not worth disputing the cause of his actions, he made them clear over far too long a period of time. When faced with the order to fight for his country, he chose instead to fight his country. And not by making the manly choice to join his co-religionists and take up the banner of jihad, but in the most cowardly act of all, terrorism. It was an act of treason and since he wore the uniform falsely he should be tried for such. When asked to name his nationality, he claimed Palestinian. He lied and said he had no religious preference, when he actually preferred his religion to his country and the soldiers who he betrayed.

When faced with this heinous act, Barack Obama had a solemn duty to serve in his role as Commander in Chief and speak to the American people and the soldiers he commands. Instead he chose to spend his time pandering to a political faction and giving shout outs to members of this accepted victim group. To say this was tone deaf is not accurate, tone dead is more appropriate.That he was unaware of how improper and disrespectful this was is a perfect example of his unfitness. But he does himself one better and then decides that rather than travel to Ft. Hood and comfort the families of the dead or the wounded it is more important to stay in DC and comfort his liberal fellow travelers as they attempt to nationalize our health care system. Former president Bush and his wife found the time to visit, was Michelle too busy to serve as his proxy even? Then while comforting the afflicted politicians who were suffering the tremendous challenge of voting against the wishes of their constituents, he saw fit to disgracefully use the dead and wounded soldiers as a political prop.

“He was absolutely inspiring. In a very moving way, he reminded us what sacrifice really is,” said New Jersey Rep. Rob Andrews, estimating the persuader-in-chief turned several votes.

“Sacrifice is not casting a vote that might lose an election for you; it is the sacrifice that someone makes when they wear the uniform of this country and that unfortunately a number of people made this week,” said Andrews.

“It made a lot of people feel a little less sorry for themselves about their political problems,” he added. “This is an emotional time for a lot of our folks politically, but this is politics and I think he correctly pointed out what’s a heck of a lot more important.”

This President has chosen his battle and it is with the American system that has served us well since our country was founded. He believes himself to be our first post-American President and he is aiming to allow his wife to be proud of this country for the second time in her adult life. He does not believe that our Armed Forces are something to be proud of, but that they represent what has been wrong with America for far too long. America the Oppressor has been tamed by Barack the Appeaser and there are no allies he will not insult and no enemies he will not bow down to. He wanted to be the President so he could serve as Organizer in Chief; he has shown he lacks what it takes for the required role of Commander in Chief.
