Barack Obama is many things. He is an arrogant elitist. He is an anti-American Marxist and holds many people who would probably be described as red-blooded Americans in contempt.
There is one group of Americans Obama has shown nothing but absolute contempt for.
Who are they and why is it so important?
The people that Obama holds in contempt are the patriotic Americans who make up our military.
From day one, Obama has done nothing but show his contempt and even hatred for the American military. Not only has he cut the budget for the military, but he is making them waste what money they have on useless and fraudulent programs like the biofuels program.
Obama’s contempt for the American military shows no limits. His campaign and the Democrat Party are now suing to block early voting for military personnel in the crucial swing state of Ohio.
Obama suspended hazard pay for the military going into combat zones and he has proposed cutting healthcare benefits for active duty and retired military personnel while keeping benefits for union workers intact.
Yet there is one thing Obama has done that shows the most contempt he has for Americas military.
In 2007, in Karbala Iraq, Islamist terrorists led by Ali Mussa Daqduq dressed up as American soldiers, attacked an American checkpoint, killed one soldier, kidnapped four others before torturing and killing them.
He was detained in 2007 and held in Iraq. In 2010, as Obama was trying to get out of Iraq as fast as he could, the issue of Daqduq came up. Obama refused to transfer the killer of five American soldiers to Gitmo. He did not want to defy Iraq’s so-called sovereignty.
So instead of prosecuting Daqduq, Obama lamely turned him over to Iraqi officials. Congressmen at the time warned this was the same as letting him go.
Now, Iraqi officials are going to do just that. They are going to release the terrorist who tortured and murdered four American soldiers.
To ad insult to injury, not only is Iraq going to free Daqduq, they are going to make it impossible for us to extradite him.
Of course, the Obama Regime is not serious about extraditing Daqduq.
Daqduq is a top Hezbollah commander. He is a threat to America and Americans around the world. Daqduq is a hero among Islamists. And now he will be a free hero.
Earlier this year when George Zimmerman killed Trayvon Martin in what may well be a case of self-defense, Barack Obama jumped into the media bandwagon demanding action.
In this case, Islamist terrorists killed Captain Brian Freeman, 1st Lieutenant Jacob Fritz, Specialist Jonathan Chism, PFC Shawn Falter and PFC Johnathon Milican. Four of the five were tortured before being executed.
If you are a member of a group that Obama needs politically, he will do anything to help. If you are a member of a group, like the military, who will not support Obama, then you are nothing to him.
This is nothing short of a travesty. In fact, travesty does not even begin to describe this.
The five American soldiers knew the risk when they put on the uniform. They also accepted an agreement with the American government that we never leave our soldiers behind. We may not have left them behind physically but given the Obama Regime’s willingness to ignore the killer of American soldiers, we might as well have.
These five soldiers deserve justice.
They will never have it while Obama is in the White House.
Pat, I'm sorry but I have to take issue with anyone who wants to cast a 'negative vote.' To me it does more harm than a 'No Vote.' I believe people should vote for the person they want in office for whatever reasons they have. If you have to, please go out and find someone you really trust and vote for them. Even if you have to write them in.
Personally, I really haven't made up my mind about whom I'm going to vote for as the Republican party kept dropping all the candidates I figured would be the best going one at a time. I will wait for the convention and become glued to a TV set somewhere. I will make my decisions at that time and can tell you that I have never cast a negative vote and I never will. I would only ask you to consider my words.
I am discounting the POWER OF CONGRESS. Just the last few days Our Congress change our Constitution again. Congress just passed S 469. It is one of those "other" bills that give Senate's their power away to the President. Congress changed Our U.S. Constitution Article II Section II. The vote was taken under a procedure called "suspension of rules" which is typically used to pass non-controversial bills. I do not call this a non-controversial bill as it is another one of those bills to destroy our Constitution. Everyone has a right to their opinion and must do what they feel is best, but I as an American believe that I must make decisions best for my Country and not just me. I can not trust Congress or Obama as President. I can not vote 3rd party because I believe it is a vote for Obama. When my Country fails and is in disarray and is worse than Greece, I hope all those people who voted for Obama and 3rd party stand up and scream at the top of their lungs I did this! I help destroy the United States of America! I would like to know what all your faces look like. But don't get angry at me, this is just my opinion and it doesn't mean much anyway.
I can't seem to find anything on the bill (S 469) that you mentioned. Any more details that may help me?
If it is the opposite of a power grab (a power give?) then I agree with you that it is wrong but would also point out that any congressman or senator who votes to diminish the Separation of Powers as outlined in the Constitution does not believe in the Constitution.
Congressional elections do matter as do local and state elections. Elect 3rd parties to city, county and state positions and they will eventually be viable candidates for Congress or even President.
Sorry about getting numbers wrong. I am so afraid for my Country and my fellow man that I get angry sometimes and it happens. No, not sometimes, but all the time. I am afraid that we haven't been watching what has been going on in our Country and trusted elected officials too long and we may not recover. I am not as young and disabled and cannot fight like I used too. But my mind works, I learn as much as I can and I support my Constitution, Country and all those who are fighting for it and I will help in anyway I can. I would give my life for my Country and it;s people if they could live free. It may end up a lot of us will.......
Romney is not my first pick, and he is not a favorite, but he is not Obama...and he is not as bad as Obama. I wonder if you aren't a demo troll as well. You talk about the Romney attack ads, statistics show Obama has aired a greater percentage of negative attack ads on Romney than Obama. So you if you only see the Romney attack ads, and not Obama's I might have to conclude you are in fact an Obama supporter.
You are totally wrong... the president b.o. IS A Dictator. No Constitutional Conservative can ignore how this traitor is destroying American Liberty!
How is it that you can mention how Mitt Romney is making negative ads but Obabama is out there pushing absolute lies and it is ok. A third party vote serves absolutely nothing. I agree that Mitt Romney wasn't my first choice but to say he is anything even close to how bad Obama is for our country is silly and self destructing. Everyone has the right to vote as they wish. If Obama wins it may be the last time. Everyone was warned how socialist Obama was but no one cared enough to check it out. Hope and change was a farse but he did do the change part. I just hope and pray that a majority of American voters isn't as short sighted as you seem to be.
As far as the importance of voting in a fiscal conservative Congress , I agree it is important but if Obama wins he will continue to ignore them and sign bills into law without going through Congress. So all you " 3rd party " voters, I hope you are willing to accept part of the responsibility if Obama wins because the conservative vote was split or even took a quarter of the conservative vote. Obama will attempt to dismantle our government and cause more violence than ever seen in the USA.
Whoah Nelly. I never said it was okay that Obama is pushing lies.
I must ask though, what bills are he signing that don't go through Congress? Sure, he makes executive orders and that is wrong, but what President hasn't done that?
How did we get stuck with having to choose between Obama and Romney anyway? I think I'd rather see Vicente Fox in the White House than either of those two clowns.
Joseph Butman, The polls are fixed. Even if they think they are getting a good sample of Americans in all parties they aren't. I very seldom take a poll. Most Conservatives I talk to say the same thing. I bet there is at least 80% Democrats as an average in all the polls. Liberals have been reporting false polls for decades now. That is why I never follow them. What I have been following is the chatter from liberals. When they get all vulgar and loud you know they are in trouble. Anytime they believe they are in the lead they sit back and act smug. With the volume of false reporting and vulgar posts they must be in real bad shape. Just keep watching because the more they are losing by the more they put on what I call " the liberal tantrum ".
Just listen to Bob Beckel on The Five. His tone and his body language tells me that librals are in real trouble.
He is not the only liberal who is running scared; just watch MSNBC!
I just can't watch the TV news. I would be so wound up and angry that no one would want to even be around me. What the liberals say on TV makes me sick. I would like to know if the liberals really think this guy has helped the country. Are they willing to give the country up just to support their party?
