“If we have to use force, it is because we are America. We are the indispensable nation. We stand tall. We see farther into the future.”
— Madeleine Albright, secretary of state (1997–2001), Clinton administration
It is a judgment on Barack Obama’s timorous, apologetic, and irresponsible conduct of foreign affairs that Madeleine Albright’s words, spoken little more than 15 years ago, now sound as antique as a pronouncement by Harry Truman at the onset of the Cold War, the great challenge America confronted bravely and without equivocation generations ago. Obama has set in motion policies meant to make America far from indispensable — a diminished nation that “leads from behind,” if at all; a nation with a downsized military, chronically uncertain about its meaning and its mission as it skulks in the wings of the world stage.
Albright made her statement about Iraq when Democrats were still supporting their country’s confrontation with the sadistic dictator Saddam Hussein, and before they defected from the war, shortly after its battles were under way. Obama opposed America’s war with Iraq and then opposed the military surge that finally brought victory. As president, Obama presided over the withdrawal of all American forces from Iraq, against the wishes of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, who wanted a continuing military presence — withdrawal paid for in the blood of thousands of American men and women in arms. Obama thus turned that benighted nation over to the malign influences of America’s chief enemy in the Middle East, Iran.
Far from shouldering his responsibility as the commander-in-chief of America’s global War on Terror and embracing it as this generation’s equivalent of the Cold War, Obama showed his distaste for the entire enterprise by dropping the term “War on Terror” and replacing it with an Orwellian phrase — “overseas contingency operations.” Minimizing the Islamist threat to the United States is not an oversight of the Obama administration; that is its policy.
There are only two times when Obama lies; when he's awake, and when he's asleep. All other times, he tells the truth.
He has not done one thing pro Constitution or pro USA that I have seen or heard about, since his birth.
he will betray us every which way he can
IMO: he is a muslim psychopath placed in that office to destroy America.
Is anyone really surprised. We put a radical anti american muslim in the White House. The only
qualification he had was the color of his skin, How dumb are we.
The question of the Century is, would you buy a used car (cash for clunkers) from Obama?
I read Kenya was a colony of Great Britian, and that the British Archives has sent proof to the United States that Obama was born in Kenya. The archives has his true birth information. So why hasn't congress taken action? The man is a fraud and a liar.
THIS P.O.S. DOES NOT REPRESENT ME! THE LIAR AND THIEF MUST GO!
Seeing as everyone already knows all this....then why is this imposter still sitting in the whitehouse. We need someone who has enough gonads and smarts to stand up to this enemy of our country. He needs to be impeached and put in jail for treason against our country. Time for someone to stand up and take charge....let Rand Paul do it....he has the intelligence and the backbone to take on this imposter and put him in jail.
Obama didn't betray this country he is doing exactly what he said he would, after all how can an imposter alien betray a country he has no legal ties to. The mentally deficient sicko liberals that voted for him betrayed our country helped by establishment GOP that will not mount a defense.
I have seen a list of 97 actions on behalf of Obama that SHOULD result in his Immediate Impeachment. Why in the hell are we having THIS discussion to begin with?
When will you Congressmen pull your heads out of the sand and DO YOUR JOBS?????
Do WE THE PEOPLE NEED TO DO YOUR JOBS FOR YOU?????
If so, we have no need for you!
800 MILLION, KNOWN GUNS in Americans hands, not counting those handed down from Father to Son and those that predate the 4473 forms. While I do NOT advocate violence, it appears the ONLY WAY to get the Communist out of OUR White House!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thanks to Obama/Naploitano, a Civil War is imminent!! A VERY large percentage of PATRIOTS started stockpiling ammo 2 years before Napolitano started playing the ammo game. So, don't think you have us over a barrel Mr. Obama!
