Unbelievable is all I can say. I’m talking about missteps or missed opportunities over the last 2 years by President Obama. Check it out.
- He dissed the Boy Scouts of America with a no-show at their 100th Anniversary Jamboree disappointing 45,000 scouts. But he didn’t miss the taping of The View.
- He blew off the traditional Memorial Day services at Arlington National Cemetery – sorta cheesy with so many Americans having been killed or injured preserving our freedom recently.
- He skipped the National Day of Prayer but recently spoke at a dinner celebrating the Islamic holy month of Ramadan in the midst of the national outcry against building a 13-story Mosque near ground zero. He has been roundly criticized for skirting the issue of whether or not building the mosque in that location is the respectful thing to do despite our cherished freedom of religion guaranteed by the Constitution. And BTW, why the sudden interest in the Constitution?
- He missed even mentioning the Gulf oil rig explosion for 8 days which killed 11 people and caused the massive 4-month oil spill, and didn’t even go to the Gulf for 13 days. But he didn’t miss out on a 4-day weekend (MIA for Memorial Day ceremonies) taking the family to Chicago, nor did he miss another vacation with the family at Acadia National Park in Maine, or numerous golf outings.
- He missed the mark on financial reform by still not curbing the massive abuses of Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac which has already cost us $145 Billion in bailout money. But they succeeded in creating huge new bureaucracies to tie down and beat up small businesses.
- He never misses a chance to smack down FOX News or conservative hosts like Glenn Beck or Sean Hannity. BTW Beck’s ratings as of May were up 22% over last year. CNN between 2006-2008 had a 200% growth in viewership –when Beck’s show was the headliner! Hannity’s show has grown 36% since going solo after Alan Colmes’ departure, has the #2 rated show in both prime time cable news and talk radio.
- Missed numerous opportunities to clamp down on Iran’s ability to go nuclear, forcing Israel to go it alone.
- Totally missed all the clues leading to the Fort Hood massacre but a day later warned Americans against “jumping to conclusions” over the motives of the shooter, which everyone else already knew was Islamic Jihad.
- Clearly misses the point of Arizona’s immigration law while trolling for the illegal immigrant/Hispanic vote.
It seems he’s all about apologies, concessions and soft talk when it comes to celebrating America’s greatness. And he’s surrounded by people who think the same way or he’d never get away with it. So it’ll be our job to make sure as many of those people as possible go in November!
What a Resume’
Pity that no one couldn’t see this coming, before 2008.
