Obama in a Rush on Things Domestic but Military and Defense Issues Can Wait

September 25, 2009

Glenn Beck took a rare foray into foreign policy and international relations on his TV show Thursday. He complained that President Obama postures, acting as if his entire domestic agenda must be enacted without a moment’s delay. In the meantime, the President takes his sweet time acting on matters of national security.

“May I ask you respectfully, Mr. President, Why does it seem like everything else on your agenda has to be done immediately, but when it comes to our troops…ahhhh, I’ll think about that,” Beck said, using a comedic gesture.

One of the first things President Obama did upon assuming office was embark on a world apology tour, seeking the world’s forgiveness. Beck showed footage of the president addressing Europeans:

In America there’s a failure to appreciate Europe’s leading role in the world. Instead of celebrating your dynamic union and seeking to partner with you to meet common challenges there have been times when America’s shown arrogance and been dismissive even derisive.

Beck said we were told the Waxman-Markey climate bill had to be passed immediately or Des Moines, Iowa was going to be submerged in the Gulf of Mexico, and Bangor, Maine was going to burst into flames.

And if we didn’t get health care reform passed by yesterda,y billions would die and the few left alive would be bankrupt and homeless if they ever caught a cold.

Yet President Obama still hasn’t decided on Army General Stanley McChrystal’s recommendations about troop strength in Afghanistan, Beck noted. McChrystal says an extra 30,000 soldiers are needed to train local troops and beat the Taliban.

The report was submitted in late August but the president hasn’t bothered to make a decision yet, Beck said.

    Thanks, Matthew. This is the Left’s m.o.: Democrats always have energy and no-strings-attached funding for every program in the budget except the most vital responsibility they face (and one of the few with which they are specifically charged by the Constitution): national defense.

    I was thinking about this yesterday…

    President Obama is hell-bent on ramming through legislation that could and in my opinion should be left to the states/individuals while simultaneously hesitating on that which is clearly the role of the central Government, national security/foreign policy/Afghanistan

    Hmmmm

    One would think a President’s first and foremost concern is the safety of all American People. Yet Obama is so self-enthralled, he has no idea what American security is.

    His anti-American speeches he has given, his communist ties he keeps trying to distance himself from tells he doesn’t give a hoot about America.

    I pray we never get attacked again, but if were attacked today, I really wonder whether he would do anything. After all, it would be against his own Muslim roots!

    That statement Obama uttered a few months back was one of those rare moments when he wasn’t focusing on himself. Personally, the quote reads better and more accurately when restated in true Obama-fashion:

    Let me be clear … to meet common challenges there have been times when I have shown arrogance and been dismissive even derisive.

    It is unfortunate that Obama owes such much to a group of leftist fanatics. He must be torn inside knowing what he should do that would make his presidency honorable, but not having the savy to do so.

    Time is running out about as fast as our patience in him.

      Obama, torn inside? Carter you are kidding, right????

      This entire Presidency, and the persona inside-his-head, has been plotted and planned for years and years. The Obama Machine was geared up long before he was elected. But he was the one they chose. Haven’t you realized that Obama is the Soros inside plant?

      Obama brings no honor to the Presidential Office. He’s a Muslim, not a Christian. He’s a Marxist, not an American capitalist. He’s a community organizer, not public servant. And he is a liar. Worse, though, he continues to degrade America with his foreign platitudes. No President should be permitted to criticize the Nation he “serves” in the manner he has already done. Obama is merely a community organizer brought to the public light to promote Marxism and supporters of this radical ideology have promoted and elevated him to political office.

      Think of all of those aligning on the far-left who are now seated in the White House. Think of all of the controversial czars he hand-picked. Think of Obama’s Economic Recovery Advisory Board — who sits on that Board “advising” Obama? Who has aligned with GE and NBC and turned our newsless media into a farce? Who strong-arms non-partisan Federal employees to lie on Obama’s behalf? And what do you believe of Obama’s personal associations — those controversial ones that he denounces when asked? What about the ACORN alliance? Tides? Soros? And what about all of the socialist policies that he is pushing which will dramatically change our Nation?

      Obama IS a leftist fanatic. Just pay attention and do some basic research.

        The best chance we have to avoid further problems would be for him to realize as has Mr. Horowitz, that he is riding on the wrong train.

        Aren’t we glad that most of us have awoken.

        Well said,if you look through muslim socialist glasses, all his actions will start to make sense.

    All of you: more to the point – when do we begin to insist that this so-called “Commander In Chief” be court-martialled for dereliction of duty? Young men are dying while he sits on his ass trying to decide which television show to appear on NEXT weekend.

    Thank You Glen Beck,

    The U.S. has the political accountability tools of Impeachment, Recall, Referendum And Initiatives, in various states and nationally.

    Use them on the representatives that are no longer upholding your Constitution.

    As a Canadian, who has been dedicated to the Guardians of Democracy, I cannot activate them, otherwise I would.

    You are in our prayers for safety.

    Here is my concern, which is in this sent item to Our Prime Minister in Canada.

    “No Confirmation of reception.”

    The Right Honorable
    Prime Minister Stephen Harper,

    Sir,

    I realize you have access to the best of intel, but I am taking the liberty of contacting you out of concern.

    Due to my knowledge of Islam, I am connecting some points, that may have slipped your advisers awareness on Obama’s history.

    I’m sure you realize that he was born to a Muslim Kenyan father, Automatically this makes him a Muslim by that religions laws.

    In his mothers second marriage, she married an Indonesian Muslim.

    He was registerd in an Indonesian school as a Muslim, later in life he “supposedly” becomes a Christian, in a sect that hates the U.S.A. and with Communist ties.

    As a Christian he would automatically be considered an Apostate, subject to being Reviled and under a Death ruling, as per Mohammeds edicts.

    Through stealth he has reached one of the most powerful positions in the World, to assist Islam in its Goal of World Domination.

    Here is the most important clue.

    His acceptance into Harvard Law School was assisted by a Muslim Attorney, Khalid Abdullah Tariq al-Mansour and associates.

    This Attorney at some stage was an adviser to Saudi Billionaires.

    Khalid Abdullah Tariq al-Mandour also was involved with Hewy Newton and Bobby Seale, and helped establish the Black Panther Party. He is known to have an intense hatred of U.S.A and Western Democracies.

    The main point is as an adviser and Muslim tied to Saudi Billionaires, Khalid Abdullah Tariq al-Mansour would never of supported a possible Christian Apostate from Islam.

    This is a part of the master plan to undermine and conquer Western Societies for Islam, as per Mohammeds Edict.

    Obama also visited Pakistan in 1981, when Americans were not allowed in the country.

    My studies of his psychological reactions to events and speeches, strenghtens my awareness of Obama as a “Wolf in Sheeps Clothing”.

    Lynn, great summary. Tunnel vision and evidently not looking for re-election!

    As long as Obama can declare ‘Mission Accomplished’ as in passing socialist

    healthcare and Cap and Trade, he will settle for serving only one term with no

    regrets: Not even that he leaves the USA a third world country and in debt for the

    next ten generations. It is analogous to Iran developing a nuke, taking out Israel

    (wiping from the face of the earth), and not caring that the response will leave

    Iran a glass parking lot. Amadinejad and the mullahs will sit at Allah’s right

    hand. I’m not sure which god Obama worships…

    Military leaders do not owe the public interest anything. Their debt is to defense contractors who need a continuing war. That is why there now is a breach of purpose between the president and his generals. Let us hope sinister forces do not create a manufactured crisis in order to keep the defense contractors working. It is not fair that the American taxpayer has to pay for the profits of a greedy few.
