For Obama, a testing, trying and emotional week
WASHINGTON (AP) – For President Barack Obama, one of his most wrenching White House weeks saw the fresh specter of terrorism and the first crushing political defeat of his new term, and the more emotional side of a leader often criticized for appearing clinical or detached.
The events presented sharp tests for a president committed to an ambitious agenda in the limited window offered by a second term.
There was the challenge to reassure a nervous nation about threats at home and to keep the rest of his legislative goals on track after the Senate rejected gun control measures that had become his top priority.
“This was a tough week,” Obama said late Friday, shortly after authorities captured the second suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings. SOURCE
This was a tough week? Really? If Obama would go to work more often, stay OFF the golf course, stop the constant vacations and campaign trips and all of that BS, he would find out that being the leaders of the FREE WORLD is a tough job EVERY WEEK.
This time the TERROR attacks occurred on Obama’s watch, under his FBI, Homeland Security and many other Intelligence gathering groups and it took Obama the longest time to even utter the word TERRORISM.
Yet Obama and his minions have no problem with declaring U.S. military Veterans and American Patriots to be the most dangerous group of *potential terrorists* that the USA faces and threatens to deploy *drones* over America to *keep an eye* on people like me and my readers.
Obama had his head handed to him over new gun laws, and what does he do? He threatens the American gun owner with Executive Orders that will restrict our rights and freedoms!
It’s incredible, 42% of Americans think that this unqualified, incompetent, dishonorable, ego-driven fraud is doing a good job.
Take a moment, admit it to yourself; you know who his supporters are, they are largely the people that YOU support — financially.
Did you notice who Obama threatened when he wasn’t getting his way on raising the debt ceiling? He threatened to not pay:
- Social Security Retirees
– Military Retirees
– Social Security
– Disability and Federal Retirees.
Now let this sink in:
- He did not threaten to stop payments to illegal aliens.
– He did not threatened to take frivolous benefits such as Internet access away from violent inmates.
– He did not offer to fire some of the thousands of unnecessary federal employees that he hired.
– He did not offer to cut down on his or his wife’s frivolous gallivanting around. $20 Million already spent on family vacations. (One Million on a FL golf outing). All our money…why not?
- He did not threaten to not pay the senators and representatives or any of their staff.
– He did not threaten to take benefits away from welfare recipients or to stop the free cell phones they get.
– He did not threaten the food stamp programs.
– He did not threaten to reduce payments in foreign aid.
– He did not threaten to cut back on anything that involves his base voters.
– The list could go on and on. He is in full political mode!
Why are we allowing this person to destroy this wonderful country with his selfishness and his lies? Have WE lost our blooming minds!
His type of change is killing our country. He needs to be reined in.
Do not forget about his tactics when it’s election time 2014.
Get out and Vote in the mid-term election – 2014. Support the people in the House and Senate that are willing to cut taxes and spending.
Let’s make 2014 the beginning of a turn around.
Forget change, we want our $$$$$ back and we want to take our country back!
According to Obama: “We can absorb a terrorist attack. We’ll do everything we can to prevent it, but even a 9/11, even the biggest attack ever … we absorbed it and we are stronger.”
Well, then he should be able to get over a school shooting in no time if that’s how he thinks. It’s just that the school shooting fits so well into his anti-gun agenda.
We the people are coming. And we are PISSED OFF!
