Last week at a news conference in Toluca, Mexico, Bobo Obama reached out to the Russians, the Syrians, the Ukranians, the Venezuelans, and pretty much anybody else that would listen. His message? Can’t everybody just get along?
He was at the North American Leader’s Conference with Mexico and Canada. He was getting slapped around pretty good by both countries because, like his foreign policies, he can’t seem to come to a decision on the XL Pipeline project that has been sitting in his In Box for the past five years.
Let’s see, Bobo has said that he and Russian president Vladamir Putin don’t always agree and have had disagreements when they talk on the phone. He said that the Ukraine shouldn’t take harsh measures with the people that are protesting, or there will be consequences. He asked the Venezuelans to release the opposition party leader that has been in charge of that country’s protests, before turning himself in to police for arrest. He is letting John Kerry do his best when it comes to Syria, but everybody has seen that Obama has leet Assad cross yet another “red line” when it comes to turning over chemical weapons. Wow. What a week! What a press conference! What a joke of a leader!
Make no mistake about it. Vladamir Putin would eat Barack Obama for breakfast before going out to wrestle a grizzly bear. And I really don’t think he’d break a sweat. Obama has never shown leadership ability, but he’s also never shown that he actually posesses a spine. He backs down every chance he gets. He puts off decisions that need to be made, he lets others (mostly congress) do his dirty work for him, and then blames them when it turns out to be the wrong thing to do. I’m trying to think of one foreign policy action that Obama has initiated, that hasn’t resulted in failure, and I can’t. Even his 2012 much repeated election stump speech, “bin Ladin is dead and al Qaeda is on the run” isn’t true. al Qaeda is as strong as ever. So is the Taliban. And both are laughing at him. But I guess they should. He is after all, Bobo the Clown. And we have a tendency to laugh at clowns.
My question is, when is this guy going to learn that at some point you have to have action to back up your rhetoric. Oh, he’s really good on the campaign trail, with a bunch of SEIU supporters standing behind him nodding and cheering. But put him in the real world against people like Bashar al Assad or Vladamir Putin and he looks like a clown in the headlghts. He talks a good game, which is what got him elected in the first place. The problem is, as most Americans (even the ones that voted for him) agree, they see it as all talk.
Don’t get me wrong. I’m conservative to a fault, but there have been Democratic presidents that I’ve thought were good. I though Harry Truman did a good job. I didn’t like his domestic agenda, but I give the guy all the credit in the world for making tough decisions. What do you think Obama would do if faced with dropping a nuclear bomb on Japan? Any chance in hell he would have done it? My guess is, we would have pulled out of World War II as soon as he could have…just like he turned tail and ran in Iraq, just like he’s about to turn tail and run in Afghanistan. No, my friends. Harry Truman was an American hero. Barack Obama is a coward.
So, as we get further and further along with the world events turning to mud and protests going awry, I can only pray that someone somewhere has the guts and the courage to stand up to the leaders of these countries to do the right thing. And by that I mean action. I don’t mean a European style boycott of Ukranian underwear, or sanctions that don’t mean a thing.
Speaking of sanctions, can you now understand why it is the House and Senate wanted to pass that law that put sanctions back into place if Iran went back on their agreement with Obama? I think they’re right to do and probably in light of all of the other hot spots around the globe that Obama can’t handle, maybe they should still pass it while they can, so it’ll sit on Obama’s desk like everything else he’s waffled on. The man is a joke. Thank God we’ve only got less than three more years of him.
Maybe he can get a job in Chicago as a community organizer?
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
