Right now we have political unrest in the Arab world. Our President tends to interpret it as a move towards Democracy. Last month Obama pumped 100 missiles into Libya to speed up the process. The people in Libya don’t want Democracy; they want to be rich like the American tourist who visits their country. Wealth is Democracy to them. Expect nothing more than a regime change, there is no middle class to sustain a Democracy. If we really wanted to to exercise our military might in a constructive way, why not in Somali? That country has a thriving Pirate and hostage program (600 hostages and growing). Our country is paying millions in ransom fees and here we attack a country doing nothing more than selling us oil?
There is one true Democracy in the Middle East, Israel. A country with a population of about 7.5 million people, surrounded by 40 million Muslims and Arabs who want the Jews dead or gone. Here our President stands up, and tells Israel “return the land to the Arabs.” The Grand Wizard has spoken. Israel is our only true ally in the Middle East. What is macho Obama thinking?
The Arabs want a piece of our Democracy, just like everyone else; a Mercedes and several young wives and that is as far as it goes. The Muslims offer the “Pilgrim Economy Package,” an explosive vest and 70 virgins in the afterlife. The plan has been pretty successful; sex sells, people are going to pieces over it. The Arabs negotiate using the principle “What’s mine is mine, and what’s yours is up for discussion.” Real compromise isn’t an option using that modus operandi. Obama's going to give the Middle East Democracy (yawn) (rah! rah! rah!).
The President’s foreign policy has been defined by a lack of direction. Oddly enough, the news media has kept silent. They give him air time and offer no hint of criticism. Here is a guy blaming our problems on 100 dollar a barrel Arab oil when the problem is a government printing too much currency. Our 14 trillion dollar national debt is what makes gas four dollars a gallon. I guess the press figures that they will document how deep Obama can dig this hole.
His domestic solutions are part of our present financial crisis. Government health care is a noble concept, but there is no way, we as a nation can afford it. Social Security and Medicare have grown to an unmanageable size. Now Congress is haggling over increasing the debt limit by 2 trillion dollars just for this fiscal year. The size of the increase is mind boggling, but I guess that is of no concern to the media, it’s not news.
I get the feeling when listening to Obama that he is talking down to us. We are children that need his guidance. This beet-head needs to be called out on the carpet. His policies are incredibly expensive and poorly thought out, considering the current economic conditions. How can he presume that government has access to unlimited resources?
I saw a license plate frame the other day. On top it said “Your village called.” And on the bottom it said “Their Idiot is missing.”
Receiving the Nobel Peace Prize for winning a Presidential election, should have been a clue. We can put our minds at ease now; the idiot is no longer missing (and that’s only the good news). Our newspapers are curiously silent, apparently Obama can do no wrong.
