President Obama and the White House Gone Fishin’
You can always tell that it is summertime in Washington D.C. It’s not the hot and humid weather, or the thunderstorms, it’s the “Gone Fishin” sign hung on the White House door.
During the first summer of Barack Obama’s presidency, June of 2009, he said nothing in support of the thousands of Iranians marching in the streets of Tehran for fair elections. That was a pivotal moment in the President’s first term to take a stand and perhaps change the course of history in Iran, and the Middle East. Instead, there were photos of Barack and his family ordering ice cream in Martha’s Vineyard. [President Obama On Iran Just Like Jimmy Carter]
This is the fifth summer of Obama’s reign and once again a shit storm has developed in the Middle East, in this case, Egypt and no one is answering the phone in the White House.
While Obama, his family and a huge entourage traipsed around Africa, hundreds of thousands of Egyptians were once again camped out in Cairo’s Tahrir Square a year to the week of President Mohammed Morsi’s election.
Over a year and a half ago Egyptians were demanding the removal of President Hosni Mubarak. President Obama and then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton were pushing vigorously for that end. When the Muslim Brotherhood party won the election, Obama heralded it as a symbol of democracy. [Obama’s Calculus on Egypt a Big Fail]
Despite all the facts that the Muslim Brotherhood is a terrorist organization, wishes to destroy Israel and impose sharia law, President Obama has promised over a billion dollars in assistance.
As late as Tuesday, Secretary of State, John Kerry was in communication with Morsi, desperately trying to resolve the crisis, even threatening to cut military aid IF Morsi was overthrown!
The Obama administration put all it’s money on backing up this Islamist, who re-wrote the Egyptian constitution to create the beginnings of a Caliphate. Has Barack Obama ever put the interests of the United States first? No need to answer, his deplorable record, speaks for itself.
Luckily, the people held to their will and finally the military conducted a coup, removing Morsi from power.
President Obama’s reaction was to dance around the truth and once again avoid standing tall as our Commander-In-Chief. “We are deeply concerned by the decision of the Egyptian Armed Forces to remove President Morsi and suspend the Egyptian constitution.
I now call on the Egyptian military to move quickly and responsibly to return full authority back to a democratically elected civilian government as soon as possible through an inclusive and transparent process, and to avoid any arbitrary arrests of President Morsi and his supporters.”
As the coup began and Morsi was placed under house arrest, Secretary of State, John Kerry was on vacation in Nantucket, on board his wife’s yacht “Isabel”. Captain Kerry was “reporting for duty”, man the sails, hoist the anchor!
What irony, Kerry sailing and Obama in a faux Situation Room photo-op. Too bad there is no evidence of the same concern by our President, back when the United States mission in Benghazi was burning and four brave Americans were murdered by al Quada.
Over the last five years President Obama has been at the helm of the worst foreign policy in the history of the United States. The most striking example of his amateur approach, has been the Middle East and his policy towards Islam.
It was so important for Barack Obama to extend a hand to Muslims that he made a speech in Cairo, June 4, 2009. “So I have known Islam on three continents before coming to the region where it was first revealed. That experience guides my conviction that partnership between America and Islam must be based on what Islam is, not what it isn’t. And I consider it part of my responsibility as President of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear.“
So there you have it folks, our President genuflects towards Mecca, while the Secretary of State, John Kerry, mans the bow of his yacht and screams, “King of the world.”
Barack Obama will go down as THE worst U.S. president ever, but don’t sweat it, it’s summertime, November 2014 is only 16 months away.
In the mid terms of 2014 we can send a message to President Obama that we are taking back our government by throwing out all the statists and putting in candidates that follow the will of the people.
Adding insult to injury, President Obama tweeted this photo, Friday afternoon, with the caption, “Have a nice weekend everybody.”
