Leadership in a Vacuum.. Obama Continues to Campaign

Posted by courage On April - 18 - 2010

Where is pResident Obama? His first duty, indeed his top responsibility as commander-in chief, is to safeguard the United States against threats leveled by the extremists of the world.. aka terrorists.  Obama would rather gallivant across the country preforming at town hall meetings, championing health care legislation.  Ahh Mr. pResident, that legislation passed, so could you perhaps start governing and quit campaigning?  Why am I sure the pResident is displaying extreme detachment from his duties as commander-in-chief?  The most telling is Defense Secretary Gates recently leaked and reported on in the NY Times a memo which states:

Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates has warned in a secret three-page memorandum to top White House officials that the United States does not have an effective long-range policy for dealing with Iran’s steady progress toward nuclear capability, according to government officials familiar with the document.

Iran’s focus and desperation to acquire nuclear weapons to, “wipe Israel from the map,” could potentially create an Armageddon scenario, with Israel defending herself the only logical response.  Do not think for one second that Israel will go quietly into the night, nor should they.  A nuclear armed Iran is an extreme danger to the entire world and could facilitate a nuclear war in the entire Middle East, which would inevitability change the course of civilization.   You think the volcano in Iceland is playing havoc with world travel, just think of the implications of a full nuclear war in the Mid East.

Talks with Iran and the attempt by the administration to rally countries around sanctions have all but dissolved, except in the mind of the pResident.  As a country we need a President who understands that there is evil in the world and that evil hates us as a nation, solely because of the freedoms we embrace… in essence the people we are.

The  perpetual campaign behavior of the pResident needs to be stowed in his basement on the southside of Chicago.  We, as a nation, need a commander-in chief who governs from a position of strength, who leads and is unapologetic to the world.

We, as a nation are still waiting…
