It has been many months since I last posted on this blog and I have no idea who is going to read it, but I wanted to start posting on it again. So much has happened since my last post before the election. Of course, we all know how that turned out. While I was certainly not pleased with the results of the Presidential Election, I was willing to give Barack Obama a chance to prove himself. But, all he has proven, to me, anyway, is that he does not know how to govern our Nation and wants to create an America where we all feel guilty for being Americans. He was inaugurated and immediately began apologizing for all of our actions during the Bush administration and then went on his European "apology tour" to make sure that the rest of the world knew how sincere he was. Since that time, he has done absolutely nothing to make us any safer, any stronger economically, militarily or domestically and has only divided this country more and more. His campaign was all about bringing us all together as one, but he has done nothing but encourage us to remain divided. His healthcare proposal is merely the latest occurrence of his divisive ways. Since the beginning of his administration, he has personally reminded the Republicans, more than once, that HE won and that although he will listen to their ideas and opinions, they really don't matter. That is awesome, since 50 million Americans chose NOT to vote for him. How much more divisive can he get than to tell half the country that our opinions and ideas are not important to him because our party is not in power? We do have democratic rule in this country and that is why we have a balance of power and elected officials in both the House and the Senate as well as a President. This system was created by our Founders to ensure that all people have a voice and that it is not always just about majority rule. Perhaps, they did not teach that to Obama when he was going to a Muslim school in Indonesia as a child. In fact, I am quite sure that they did not. But you would think that he would have picked it up somewhere along the way in his Harvard education. Then again, maybe not.
There is so much that I want to say about the current situation in our country's political system that I could write for hours, but no one would want to read all of that in one sitting, so I will break it up into small bites. Suffice it to say that Barack Obama is not the President that we need right now and that I hope that his time spent at the U.N. General Assembly these past couple days with real leaders like Benjamin Netanyahu and Stephen Harper and Nicolas Sarkozy and the like will teach him how to "man up" and stand firm for his country. Maybe Netanyahu will loan him a "pair", (I am quite sure the Israelis have extra sets), and he can get tough with rogue nations and their despot dictators like Iran and North Korea and Venezuela. Maybe he will walk away from Ahmadinejad and Chavez and refuse to embrace Qaddafi like the "son" that Qaddafi thinks Obama to be. By the way, what an awesome compliment! Reagan must be turning over in his grave right now to think that the President of the United States is so loved by Muammar Qaddafi that he thinks of him as his "son". Way to go, Barack!!! You should be SO proud!!! Maybe Chavez and Ahmadinejad will call you "brother" next time. Then you will have truly arrived. And America will be forever embarrassed. Your goal will be accomplished. I guess we will have to wait until Obama's next "World Tour" to find out. In the meantime, my prayers will be with Israel and her strong leaders. And with ours as well, no matter how weak our leaders appear to be.
