The president is courting us, to help with his reelection But what he’ll get this time, is a resounding rejection. Once again on nine eleven we became victims of terror Yet the president lied to us, blaming it on a … Continue reading
Members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, chaired by Senator John Kerry, have circulated a bipartisan letter asking for “an accounting of the attacks against U.S. missions in Egypt, Libya, and Yemen,” from President Obama. The Senators also want to know what advance warnings the administration had of the attacks and whether the administration shared that information with the personnel involved in the attacks.
The word issue, as it pertains to political campaigns, means a point in question or a matter that is in dispute, as between contending parties. Therefore when you say that we should take care of our elders, support our military, provide high quality education, give people access to healthcare, and insure equal rights for all, you are not talking about issues of contention, we all want to see these things addressed, the contention lies in how to best achieve them, and on that, history is on our side.
Much like the previous attacks on Romney for having had the audacity of visiting New Orleans after the storm, and several days before the campaigner-in-chief saw fit to do the same, Romney is once again under sieged by Obama’s campaign and by the media for stating the obvious, defending our sovereignty and standing up for one of our most sacred values, our freedom of speech.
With the focus of the coming election appropriately directed at the economy and the creation of jobs, some of the media is desperately attempting a redirection of attention toward foreign policy. More precisely, the MSM is fabricating a four year history of its protagonist’s foreign policy.
One of my favorite bloggers has a great writing technique. He has led an interesting life out in the American West which has given him some fascinating experiences involving the great outdoors and with wildlife, horses, and people from outside that environment trying to interact with it. He then takes these experiences and weaves them into some well written blog posts that relate to current events. Growing up in the suburbs of New Jersey and spending my 20′s as a straight laced workaholic by day and bar hopping idiot by night don’t give quite the same rich personal history to draw upon, but I’m going to try to emulate his technique anyway. So sit back and enjoy!
While I don’t disagree with the Administration over this policy, I find the whole situation ironic. It was just a few years ago liberals were crying and protesting all over the fact that the United States waterboarded a few high level terrorists.
Guess no one saw this coming eh?
Armed militias in Libya are committing human rights abuses with impunity, threatening to destabilize the country and hindering its efforts to rebuild, Amnesty International said Thursday.
While we’re waiting for Iowa to make up their minds as to a possible Obama opponent, it may behoove us to examine just what repercussions of Obama’s Pakistan foreign policy lie in store for the US and our national security. Yes yes… I’m well aware that foreign policy is triaged way down in the electorate’s mind in import. At least when it comes to specific day-to-day events. But there is no doubt that our national security does still remain an important campaign issue… even if not at the top of the voters’ radar. So this is a worthy debate, even if not as “sexy” a topic these days.
And Newt goes boom!
Newt Gingrich voiced enthusiasm for Mitt Romney’s Massachusetts health care law when it was passed five years ago, the same plan he has been denouncing over the past few months as he campaigned for the Republican presidential nomination.
