Barack Hussein Obama and the downfall of America
The biggest military lightweight in recent American political history appears to have *grown a set*.
Obama: I’m not bluffing on Iran
President Barack Obama says he isn’t bluffing when he says Iran shouldn’t have a nuclear weapon, but he cautions against a premature Israeli strike against the Islamic republic.
“At a time when there is not a lot of sympathy for Iran and its only real ally, (Syria,) is on the ropes, do we want a distraction in which suddenly Iran can portray itself as a victim?” he said this week in an interview with the Atlantic. SOURCE
Obama may not be bluffing, he seems to be all too anxious to use the military that he and his wife are believed to despise.
What? You say Barack Obama doesn’t despise the military? You say he only has their best interest, and that of the nation, in his heart?
General warns of Syrian bioweapons, Iran threat
WASHINGTON (AP) - The top U.S. commander in the Middle East will warn Congress on Tuesday against efforts to scale back the Navy’s presence in the embattled region, saying threats from Iran and elsewhere will require more ships and maritime missile defense capabilities.
Marine Gen. James Mattis, head of U.S. Central Command, also said Syria has a “substantial” chemical and biological weapons capability and thousands of shoulder-launched missiles. Until now, the U.S. military has largely declined to describe the expanse of weapons that President Bashar Assad’s regime has at its disposal.
Mattis laid out his concerns in testimony prepared for Senate and House Armed Services Committee hearings this week. He and Navy Adm. William McRaven, head of U.S. Special Operations Command, are testifying before the Senate panel Tuesday. The testimony was obtained by The Associated Press. SOURCE
Our Generals have to go to Congress, hat in hand, and beg for the money needed to keep America safe. Think of Oliver Twist and this line; “Please Sir, I want some more.”
Barack Obama has done what Democrats love to do; he has followed the example set by Bill and Hillary Clinton and has cut the U.S. military and intelligence budget down to bare bones.
Obama cuts defense to the bone, and then some
President Obama is determined to have national security on the cheap. Or to put it more accurately, he is willing to pare back defense spending to dangerously low levels so he can keep spending like there’s no tomorrow on the domestic side. SOURCE
Cutting our military, defence and intelligence budgets is not only dangerous, it is stupid.
Yes, we DO need to tighten our belts, Iraq and Afghanistan have hit budgets hard, and in the opinion of some, Iraq was an expense we did NOT have to indulge in, and I don’t directly blame Obama for Iraq, that was a conundrum that he really did inherit, and he got us OUT of Iraq. Afghanistan is still going, and in ALL honesty, I don’t know why.
We went to Afghanistan to get Osama bin Laden, and to destroy the Taliban. OK, so we’re batting .500, bin Laden is dead.
The domestic spending is an issue I have a lot of problems with.
Obama spends like a drunken sailor, apologies to all drunken sailors everywhere, and it’s not his money that Obama is spending; it’s OUR money, and he has spent us into bankruptcy.
Green energy bailouts, think Solyndra, auto bailouts; think General Motors and The Obamamobile, the Chevy Volt. Think welfare and healthcare for ILLEGALS. Think about the vacations that Obama and his pet Wookie (Michelle) take every other week or so. Think about the entourage that the Wookie carries with her; personal hand servants, Secret Service, military personnel and the like.
The list goes on and on. You would almost think that Obama and the Wookie were rich GOP elitists.
Rich GOP elitists? Think Ann Romney: ‘I don’t even consider myself wealthy’.
I’m only shooting in the dark on this one, but I am guessing that after today the GOP will have their candidate, Mitt Romney, and in all honesty, Mitt has been the pick of the GOP and the RNC leadership for quite a long time now.
Beware America, we’re having another RINO forced on us, one that IS an elitist, one that is NOT all that different from Barack Hussein Obama in MANY ways.
I was blogging when George W. Bush ran for office the 2nd time and I had to support Bush, the Dem offering was pathetic. When John McCain ran against Obama in 2008 I was a lot bigger in the blogging world and I made NO apologies when I said that McCain was the biggest RINO, the worst choice and the most unelectable choice the RNC could have ever thrown out as a sacrificial lamb.
I hope I am wrong, but I see the same failings in Mitt Romney.
We can fix all of this America, but it will never be better as long as America falls for the likes of Barack Hussein Obama and the mantra of the DNC.
In ALL fairness, it will never get better as long as we fall for the same old tired line of BS from the GOP/RNC. As long as we keep sending Casper Milquetoast into the fray as a candidate, we, the voting public, are relegated to voting for the lesser of the evils.
