Is this our President?

I received what follows from a friend of mine, and thought you might find it interesting.

I remember watching an interview a few years ago of a former FBI agent who had infiltrated the Weather Underground back in the early 70s.  He described a meeting where the group had been discussing their plans to overthrow the U.S. government by creating uncontrollable chaos.  At the time, the agent asked what the group’s plans should be following said overthrow.  He recounted that, to his shock, the group didn’t have any plans at all.  The group wanted only to destroy the U.S. government, but had absolutely no plans to replace that government with anything.

Fast forward 40 years and I am beginning to understand the Obama administration’s policy in the Middle East.  Recall the 2008 presidential campaign when John McCain indicated that the U.S. should remain in Iraq for as long as it takes for that country to build a stabile government.  Then candidate Obama proposed the opposite, that we had accomplished our goal of eliminating Sadam Hussain and the Iraqis should be left to their own devices.

Again in Afganistan while it was the Republican stance that we should work to establish a legitimate pro-western government, Obama’s policy was that we had accomplished our goal of destroying Bin Laden and should now withdraw.

In Egypt, the Obama Administration proclaimed that it was time for Mubarik to go, and supported his overthrow, but apparently had not even considered what the future would hold for a post Mubarik Egypt.

Again, in Libya, we see the same result.  Assist in the removal of  Khadaffi, but offer little  in the way of follow through. 

Now, less than 5 years following President Obama’s infamous Apology Tour we are faced with a Middle East that is vastly different than it had been during the prior 50 years.  Iraq, Afganistan, Egypt, Libya, and now Syria, are all being infiltrated by Islamofacists.  Iran is marching full speed ahead toward nuclear weaponry, Christians are being slaughtered throughout the region, and there is no end in sight to the spread of instability.

President Obama’s policy seemingly has been derived from the leanings of the former Weather Underground…everything the U.S. does is bad.  Everything the U.S. stands for is bad.  Everything that the U.S. has supported in the past is bad.  Unfortunately, like the Weather Underground, this Administration seems to have no plans for follow through.  In the mean time Russia and Iran step up to the plate in Syria, while China is happily building the capability to fill the vacuum elsewhere in the world.

What I see in the President is not that he stands for the wrong things, but that he doesn’t stand for anything.

Interesting thoughts.

    Whoever wrote that couldn’t have said it more clearly. Thanks so much SOS for sharing that. That along with that video of then dem. Senator turning Rep. Should ice any next election for any position. Elbert Guillory could in no way have stated the conservative position better. The entire country needs to hear that video.

    I agree with your friend: this president is the biggest empty Teflon suit ever elected.? Clearly, the Dems picked him over their presumptive front runner, Hillary, because of the high value of the race card used in attacking any criticism of said suit.? His incompetence is protected by his skin color.? We’ve seen how well he performs off script, or worse, off teleprompter.? If programmed, he performs well, but when the hand is pulled out of his back, he is as lifeless as a marionette.
    Sadly, the White House has become a Potemkin village, complete with its own village idiot.? He is in the process of making this country the paper tiger Osama bin Laden accused it of being.
    Somewhere in hell, Frank Marshall Davis is smiling….

    the rise of islamist puppet governments is purposeful, how else will they keep people believing we need more government security from attacks?? (the vast majority of which appear to be FBI-CIA enticement operations as opposed to anything resembling a coherent terrorist force.)
    ya hate to insinuate this stuff is being done on purpose, who wants to think that of their “fellow man”…but cripes…this stuff is being done on purpose.

    I think President Obama stands for himself first, anything he desires should be given to him. ?In second place are his two children who also must have nothing but the best, lastly Michelle. However, he does not have to demand anything for her, she demands and gets everything she wants, all by herself. As for sustance, he has none.

    Oh sure …….let’s get involved? in Syria …that would be brilliant ..another stupid waste of resources.Let’s take care of our own back yard first.let’s stop hunger in the USA .Let’s reduce our deficit first.Stay the hell away from untenable, unwinnable…involvement.I don’t think Obama is an empty suit …….at least he has one..I just saw his interview on the Charlie Rose show and thought him to be thoughtful somewhat pensive but very intelligent…and gee no teleprompter!

      I hope you realize that President has already gotten us involved in Syria. we have troops just outside the border, we have given rebels arms and our troops have trained the rebels. Now how thoughtful and intelligent do you think he is? Is it still another stupid waste of resources or is it brilliant, because it was done under the President’ts order?
