The Blood on Barack Obama’s Hands

The warning signs were there in 2009. President Manuel Zelaya of Honduras sought a referendum to change the Constitution of Honduras to allow himself a longer tenure in office. The Honduran Constitution permanently bars multiple terms and it is not an amendable provision of the nation’s constitution. The Honduran Supreme Court ruled that Zelaya had overstepped his bounds and Zelaya sought to stir up civil unrest. He was supported by Hugo Chavez, his friend, and Barack Obama, the new President of the United States.

The Honduran people ignored the outside pressure and have kept their former President in exile.

Barack Obama then traveled to the Middle East to sing songs of forgiveness for the bully America. As the Arab Spring sparked and riots spread throughout the Middle East, Barack Obama did nothing to quell them. He was happy to help push aside the American leaning strong man of Egypt, Hosni Mubarak. But the Muslim Brotherhood took over and expanded its power until the Egyptian military had to shut it down.

In Libya, Obama decided it was time to oust Ghaddafi who’d all but bowed before George W. Bush after Bush’s ouster of Saddam Hussein. Libya was no longer a threat. But in the process, we destabilized the region and got our ambassador killed in the ensuing unrest.

In Syria, lines in the sand were constantly crossed, then the President threw in with rebels who in turn threw in with ISIS. Now Russia is building military installations in Syria, threatening to further destabilize the region.

But, when the people of Iran stood up in their Green Revolution against their totalitarian masters, Barack Obama backed the totalitarian masters and refused aid and assistance to the people of Iran. In Ukraine, the President has done little to help the people there either.

Time and time again, Barack Obama has been on the wrong side of just about every uprising in the world. As a result, those who want to harm us have become emboldened. Thousands and thousands are dying gruesome deaths in Africa and the Middle East because of Barack Obama’s leadership.

It is not that Obama is weak. Nor is it that he is timid. It’s that he constantly turns a blind eye in the face of evil — a willful malfeasance.

As Fred Hiatt noted in the Washington Post about Syria,”This may be the most surprising of President Obama’s foreign-policy legacies: not just that he presided over a humanitarian and cultural disaster of epochal proportions, but that he soothed the American people into feeling no responsibility for the tragedy.”

Around the world, people have died and they have gone to their deaths knowing that Barack Obama has, each time he confronted evil, genuflected to it and turned his back. And the American Left, which once demanded justice and human rights for all around the world, applauded him.

How many will die because of Barack Obama? If we were truly honest the answer would be a whole lot more than any bodies laid at the feet of George W. Bush.

Hillary Clinton Prepares to See Underside of Obama Bus

I do hear that President Obama will let Hillary Clinton tour a tire factory this week so she can at least match a dress to the tire tread, but one way or the other, Hillary Clinton is now going under the Obama bus. Joe Biden began the effort to throw Hillary under the bus in the debate Thursday night. He said the White House never | Read More »

Today the Media Will Probably Blame Bush

Last night Fox News broke the story that the mastermind of the attack in Libya had been released from GTMO in 2007 during the reign of George Chimpy McBushitler Halliburton and his evil Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, also known as Barack Obama’s Secretary of Defense Robert Gates. But wait . . . there’s more. The United States had advance warning of the attack and | Read More »

The American Media Beclowned Themselves Yesterday

Yesterday, as the American consulate in Libya was smoking and the rioters were returning in Egypt, the President of the United States flew off to Las Vegas for a fundraiser while his spokesman was telling the American press corps that yesterday wasn’t really a normal political day. Had it been George W. Bush, the media would, right now, be marching on the White House with | Read More »

Mitt Romney Should Raise These Questions

Mitt Romney is in a difficult position. On September 11, 2012, radical Islamists stormed the American Embassy in Cairo, tore down and burned the American flag, and hoisted a black flag associated with Al Qaeda. In Libya, radical Islamists did the same, but also set the embassy on fire, fired rockets, and killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and at least three other State Department employees.

BREAKING: US Ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens, Killed

The United States Ambassador to Libya has been killed according to Reuters and other news services. The violence in Benghazi is chaotic right now, but a Libyan official claims the Ambassador and three other Embassy staffers have been killed. Reuters has more information on the report and the violence.

On Intervention and Opposition to the Libyan Engagement

“Right now, the best case is simply to sit back and root for injuries between the warring parties in Libya — not intervening for either side.

Using the same rationale George W. Bush used to go into Iraq, Barack Obama has now gone into Libya.

It seems that the world is upside down. Suddenly Republicans are concerned about going into a Middle Eastern country and and Democrats are gung-ho neocon warmongers.

The situation, of course, is not that simple.

Whether you think he lied, was misled, or was right, George W. Bush did make a case to Congress and the American people prior to going into Iraq that Iraq was training Al Qaeda and, given its weapons of mass destruction and ties to Al Qaeda, was an imminent threat to the United States.

Again, you can think he lied. You can think he was misled. You can think he was right.

But Bush went to the United Nations, got the appropriate resolutions, went before the American people to make his case, and before going into Iraq received Congressional approval. In fact, it took him a year and a half to make his case. When he went in, he had 80% public approval and a much larger international coalition than Obama is taking with him.

He also could articulate an idea for an endpoint, whether you liked it or not.

Feel free to disagree with every justification and feel free to disagree with his idea of an endpoint, but recognize the factual timeline.

Barack Obama, on the other hand, has failed at several of these things.
