I suggest that it is far too early to start finding fault with our new President’s personal efforts and his administration. That is not to say that we should sit passively when we see disturbing issues or actions.
Our new leader has spoken for many months that he wants a bi-partisan administration, but every time he has spoken since taking office he has gone out of his way to kick his predecessor in the groin. “The disastrous economy that I inherited…..” There cannot be anyone in the entire world that doesn’t know that Obama inherited a difficult economy, but I suspect it makes his entitlement base giggle every time he gives Bush a shot.
I still predict that the media will turn on President Obama in the near future, but in these early days he is still being protected by the liberal main-stream media outlets.
Headlines from January 26th:
“Historic Obama Inauguration will cost only $120 million”
“Obama Spends $120 million on inauguration; America Needs a Big Party”
“Everyman Obama shows America how to celebrate”
“Citibank executives contribute $8 million to Obama Inauguration”
Headlines from 4 Years Ago:
‘Republicans spending $42 million on inauguration while troops die in unarmored Humvees”
“Bush extravagance exceeds any reason during tough economic times”
“Fat cats get their $42 million inauguration party. Ordinary Americans get the shaft”
Isn’t this comparison fascinating?
Here’s a suggestion from your Commander that would have made Obama’s recent announcement more palatable on his closing of Gitmo within one year.
What if he had said, “We have a detailed plan for the dispersion of the current inhabitants of Gitmo, and if we can execute the plan we will close Gitmo within one-year.”?
Also, with drugs and illegal immigration costing the American economy so many millions of dollars and destroying the economies of border states, I propose Obama withdraw thirty thousands troops from Iraq, with the approval of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, sending ten thousand immediately to Afghanistan, and twenty thousand back to the United States to be assigned to the Mexican border. As additional troops can be withdrawn from Iraq we would add to our troop deployment in Afghanistan and send additional troops to the southern Border States. Additionally, the Joint Chiefs of Staff should immediately be assigned to commence a detailed investigation into where we can withdraw American troops currently serving overseas, such as in Germany, Japan, Korea etc. Hopefully, many of them can be returned to the USA for service along both the southern and northern borders. This action plan would save the U.S. taxpayers millions of dollars and provide an improvement in reducing the flow of drugs and illegal immigration.
Think of the economic impact this action would immediately have on our faltering economy. This would be a strong bi-partisan act, but I can’t see it coming from Obama, because he does not dare arouse his entitlement/ illegal immigrant base that depends upon open borders and illegal drugs. His voting base would go crazy, and the ACLU would have massive heart attacks, but American citizens would win if he followed my suggestion.
This is just a bi-partisan suggestion for our new President.
