OBAMA FIDDLES WHILE MIDDLE EAST BURNS

How do we even begin to describe the leadership style and behavior of President Obama? Just some of the many things that come to mind as he has responded to the building Middle East crises, especially Libya, are his unempathetic passivity and total lack of courage and leadership in protecting civil rights. He displays a total lack of competency and ability to lead the free world to stand for those begging for America’s help and intervention. He is a bold failure.
Up until this lame administration, it was a given that we would lead, confront and take out those who were evil and killing others. The world actually counted on us to be the ‘good guys’ and act. We used to stand no matter what the tilted, highly Muslim influenced UN would say. We pursued what was right.
Now we hear Obama and Hillary saying America won’t go first and lead in our response to Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi wiping out thousands of his people who dare to march in the streets, picket and stand for freedom. In Gadhafi’s world, either the people love and obey him to the letter or they will die.
Events and murders were happening all over Lybia for 10 days before we heard from Obama. Then Obama’s bold move was to send Hillary to Geneva for international talks. There was supposed to be a whole lot of reasoning with other countries that would fix the problem. Meanwhile, while Obama and Hillary are waxing philosophical and ever so wordy, murders are happening and America is NOT leading.
