I think the left wing needs to seriously reassess its priorities. Think about what we have seen from this administration in the past few weeks.
Veterans are left waiting for medical care and the only response had been to retire two men who had nothing to do with it and, more importantly, have been allowed to keep their pensions and benefits.
The president’s own spokesman has resigned from the pressure and as he did so, the president blew a kiss to him.
We have traded 5 dangerous men for what appears to be for a soldier that went “native” and Obama allowed parents who were sympathetic to the enemy trash America in the Rose Garden at the White House. Our president has violated numerous laws to recover what may be a traitor. Instead of prosecuting him for desertion for his modern day John Dunbar (“Dances with Wolves”) impression, we will probably promote and pin a medal on him.
We have a Marine who is being tortured and abused in a miscarriage of justice in Mexico with little effort to recover him. This is in light of the fact that busloads of illegal immigrants from this very same area of the world are given food, clothes, shelter and a safe haven from prosecution here.
Our military has been sacrificed for the false “green” agenda and our military can no longer protect us from an attack on the homeland — by the Pentagon’s own estimate. Additionally, our government has ensured the economy cannot recover now or in the immediate future by placing restrictions on the coal industry and power generation which accounts for 30% of this nation’s energy needs.
Congress is investigating the possibility that our former Secretary of State may have colluded with intelligence services that provided arms to the enemy and killed 4 Americans, including our ambassador to Libya. Our current Secretary of State is falling asleep in public on leaders that are under attack from a hostile nation.
During all of this, our president has suggested that dictatorial-like powers would fix this government and that the normal process of check and balances is an antiquated process. Meanwhile, bureaucratic departments like Social Security, the IRS and the BLM are stockpiling weapons and ammunition.
I have only one question.
What is wrong with our leadership that they have allowed this man to remain in office? I fail to see the reason why the Democrats in the Senate are standing by him and refusing to move forward on the obvious and logical course of action to deal with a president that is clearly incompetent, if only to protect their precious jobs.
I had predicted that the GOP might not win the Senate in the fall. This may be the first prediction I made that was so far off base.
Or sadly, was right on target.
