While our imperial leader attempts to gather as much power for himself here at home, he now looks as weak as Neville Chamberlain did in the 1930’s over seas. It is incredibly frustrating to watch history repeat itself.
This is what happens when you have a leader who does everything he can to consolidate power here at home, while ignoring the founding documents the country is based upon. President Obama has weakened the economy, he has weakened the dollar through horrendous debt, he has weakened the military with his budget cuts, and he has weakened our own people’s resolve by giving them free handouts, of money we don’t even have.
Instead of using the Budapest memorandum, and sending troops into northern Ukraine to balance out power in the region, and to serve as a stern warning to Russia’s Putin, instead President Obama talks to Russia’s president for 90 minutes, complaining that the ex KGB Colonel doesn’t have the right to invade the Ukraine, all the while wearing his ‘mom jeans’.
President Obama, instead of mobilizing our forces in the region and sending a strong signal to Russia to back down, instead dispatches John Kerry to Kiev, who claims ‘the US stands with the Ukraine’. But in what way? How do we ‘stand’ with the Ukraine? The only thing Russia recognizes is force. Instead we have just now given the Ukraine a billion dollars. A billion dollars we don’t have, for a country that doesn’t have anything to use it on, except to appease Vladimir Putin.
All of the Republican’s fears during the 2008 elections have now come into light. Barack Obama is a weak president, who doesn’t understand international affairs. He doesn’t understand the economy, he doesn’t understand how to cut taxes to allow businesses to create jobs, the only thing he understands is socialist community organizing. But then, what should we expect from a man raised by communists?
The only thing stopping Russia from invading the rest of the Ukraine is John Kerry being in Kiev. Russia, and Vladimir Putin, for all their faults, dare not kill an American, especially a high ranking official like Kerry. This is why we should send troops into the region. Even a couple of small companies would do. The Russians would not dare start a wider war with the US.
Instead, our inept president dithers, and offers money and promises, instead of physical force, which is much needed. All of this just goes to show how hollow this president is. He is truly the emperor with no clothes. A communist community organizer who knows nothing of how the world really works. His policies spell the death for the western way of life. We can only hope to hold on now until a real president is elected again.
