I have been doing my best to try to describe to the American people the things that were wrong in electing President Obama, but have more or less failed…..then, today, I got a comment from someone, who hit it right on the head with his comment. And the sad part of this? He doesn’t live in America! Here is his comment:
Hello, I am from Ireland and watched the campaign with interest! My take on President Obama is, how on earth a guy with no experience,no leadership history and a guy linked to terrorists get to be president? All because he sounds good and looks like he stepped off a film set playing the president? I think it will all end in tears although I hope not for America’s sake. If a guy here in Ireland had any links at all with an unrepentant IRA terrorist he would not get elected.I cannot get my head around that one!
No truer words could have been uttered. I cannot get my head around that one.
When I read that comment, I had to make it the subject of my next post. This person lives in Ireland, and gets it better than a lot of the American people do. Better than any of the media does, and better than anyone in Washington does. And if that isn’t a sad state of affairs, I do not know what is.
I said that I would praise Obama if he did something right, and so far, he hasn’t. But he has done things for politics only. He said that he was going to freeze his staff’s wages, which sounds good, but if you think on it, they just got their jobs. Why would their wages need freezing? They wouldn’t be up for a raise for some time to come! Say during the next election when he is running for President again?
He has said that he is going to close Guantanamo within the next year, and then what? Where are the terrorists going to go? People, Guantanamo is NOT a luxury hotel as the liberals seem to want people to think it is. It is a prisoner of war camp. Nothing more. These people held there are not anything but enemies of the United States and releasing them would be a mistake. You need to rethink this and keep Club Gitmo open for business.
Oh, now come on, President Obama. I am sure that somewhere in that Liberal frame of yours, there is at least one thing, you can do that would be good for this nation, and not done only for political expediency. Isn’t there? If not, then we really did make a mistake electing you president. Didn’t we?
