Barack Obama, who deluded by obstinacy and avarice, is callous to the refined feelings of humanity, he is deaf to wisdom, blind to justice.
“If ever time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin.” – Samuel Adams
“Extremism in defense of liberty is no vice. Tolerance in the face of tyranny is no virtue.”– Barry Goldwater
Let’s look back to the Iranian Hostage Crisis, (when we had another weak spineless appeasist President) where 52 Americans were held hostage for 444 days from November 4, 1979, to January 20, 1981, after a group of Muslim Student Followers of the Imam’s Line (a radical Muslim terrorist group) took over the American Embassy in Tehran in support of the Iranian Islamic Terrorist Revolution, led by Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini that allied with the Marxist Tudeh Party, that has led to the Iran we know today that is run by the radical Ayatollahs, who incite hatred for Western values and culture. Carter didn’t demand immediate release and would not retaliate with US forces. An Ambassador was also killed then, due to the wrong headed policies of then President Jimmy Carter.
The American public united in outrage at this rash action against the United States. Many Iranians living in the U.S. were deported when they were discovered to be supporters of the revolution. Americans called upon President Jimmy Carter to act. However, Carter only ceased oil imports from Iran. Seeing Carter’s failure to defend the Americans, Khomeini commented that the “action has many benefits. … This has united our people. Our opponents [Carter] do not dare act against us.” Khomeini added supported from the People’s Mujahedin of Iran (a terrorist group) to his support from the Islamists, when he adopted the slogan “America can’t do a damned thing.” Together, the Muslim radicals and their Communist allies purged the country of all opposition, citing pro-Americanism as an offense in many executions. The American public continued to urge the President to take justified military action to protect his people. Carter answered by simply arranging for a Canadian ambassador to be sent to interview the hostages.
Former Democratic Attorney General in the Johnson Administration, Ramsey Clark flew to Tehran and participated in a “Crimes of America” trial while the crisis was on.
His ill-considered (Operation Eagle Claw) an attempt at a rescue mission sealed his fate as the most hated U.S. president in the history of the U.S. armed forces.
The last President of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, according to many of the former hostages, is one of their captors. The Iranian government has denied that Ahmadinejad was one of the Muslim Student Followers of the Imam’s Line.
Barack Obama however, surpasses even Carter in a spineless foreign policy. Not only is Obama into appeasement, he goes far beyond that. He is an apologist, retreatist, and you get the idea that he actually subscribes, to the same radical beliefs that the Islamic Terrorists subscribe to. The Iranian Hostage Crisis also happened in an election year, there were Americans killed in that “crisis” also.
Both presidential leaders went into their re-election efforts with poor-performing economies, high gas prices and an inability to stave the rising violence and hate towards America by radical Islamic protesters. The adversities that Carter faced in his re-election bid, as it was with Obama, were largely due to the policies that he and his administration put in place.
In addition, Carter, like Obama now, thought a peaceful diplomatic solution to the violence abroad could be reached if one sought to find one hard enough. Carter unlike Barack Obama, I believe was just a misguided fool, whereby Obama, sympathizes and obviously agrees with our enemies.
At the time (of Benghazi)the Muslim Brotherhood, who essentially rose to power after helping to oust Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak by using the Arab Spring protests, threw their support behind the protest movement held in front of all major mosques in the country according to AbrahamOnline.
And this act may finally be the call to action that President Obama has to heed, especially if it involves one more attack directed at the U.S. or her interests and people.
Ahmed Hussein, the Muslim Brotherhood Secretary-General, said Egyptians must condemn the assault on Islamic religious sentiment, and staging the Friday protests is the way to do it.
Obama stands poised to repeat Carter’s failures, however, as he did not even address the brutal murder or body dragging of US Ambassador Chris Stevens until Wednesday, a day after his death.
Sadly, when the president did address the brutal murders, promising justice to those responsible, many believe that America’s enemies doubted what he said, since he said that America will work with the Libyan government in order to secure justice, according to CBS.
Obama like Carter criticized his opponent Romney’s remarks “Gov. Romney seems to have a tendency to shoot first and aim later,” President Obama said in a CBS interview. Romney had criticized the Obama administration’s ‘apology’ in response to the attacks on the embassy and subsequent failure to condemn the attacks right away.
Carter also criticized Reagan’s views on foreign policy during his speech at the Democratic National Convention in 1980, slamming Reagan for living in a “fantasy world” and noting his inability to understand the “complex global changes” in foreign policy.
“It’s a make believe world. A world of good guys and bad guys, where some politicians shoot first and ask questions later,” Carter said, “No hard choices. No sacrifice. No tough decisions. It sounds too good to be true – and it is. The path of fantasy leads to irresponsibility. The path of reality leads to hope and peace.”
After Reagan’s nomination in July 1980, Carter criticized Republicans calling it “a party with a narrow vision, a party that is afraid of the future, a party whose leaders are inclined to shoot from the hip, a party that has never been willing to put its investment in human beings who are below them in economic and social status.”
Barack Obama’s campaign slogan for 2012 was “Forward“, as anyone can see, he is clearly going “BACKWARD” Let’s stop letting him take the United States backward with him.
During the re-election campaign they got REALLY desperate for good news on the economy when they started looking at the unemployment numbers for cities, instead of per state or national unemployment numbers! Remember the Carter years when we had a “Misery Index”?
I think Obama’s numbers and,,,er,, achievements, far exceed Jimmy Carter’s, just think! Rosalynn can finally give a huge sigh of relief that her husband isn’t the biggest idiot, ever elected by the uninformed American voters!
Now Obamacare is showing the care the democrats actually have for America and her people. They refuse to live by the law they promoted, lied about and passed, while shutting down key parts of government to put the “maximum amount of pain” on the American people, i.e. National Parks, Open Air Memorials, scenic turnouts on America’s highways and even the ocean in Florida to fishing.
While the fiasco of Obamacare continues to reveal the cavernous depths of the deception democrats used to get the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) passed. Which they were able to do because of the super majority the democrats had in Congress as well as the presidency, despite the protests of the American people.
As Americans are seeing now, the PPACA Obamacare does nothing to protect the patient, nor is it affordable in any manner. It is designed to further weaken and destroy the middle class in America. Whether you want to believe it, acknowledge it or not, that is the simple truth and is evidenced by the effects of the law.
