Obscuring his absence of answers to America’s vital national security questions, Barack Obama plebed through another pessimistic dissemination of partisan liberal moralizing and desolate political condemnation in what amounted to little more than a hatefilled lament of Bush era phantasms.
Unfortunately, for those hoping that Obama would suddenly become a seasoned veteran of leadership in matters of national security, the teleprompted speech presented him as a naive, corrosive antecedent to even more unresolved complexity and dissolution.
Poised in the National Archives, under the watchful portrait of America's founding fathers, Obama exhibited the distinct characteristics of an inexperienced amateur while conducting little more than another episode of his redundant, serial blaming of the ghosts of policies past. Throughout the duration of the speech, Obama struggled to make himself appear more of an authority on protecting America from terrorists than he actually is.
Contrasted against the poignant, dagger-laden rebuttal of former Vice President, Dick Cheney, one is forced into compassion for the rookie, Obama. He just doesn’t have a chance in a debate on this matter, yet. But, who can hold fault in Obama? Cheney has resounding home field advantage here.
With all of his wordsmithing mastery, Obama withers, out-gunned and out-manned, against the overbearing substance of reality conveyed by those who have already walked the hard line of implementing successful national security policy before him. It does no good to hate history for dictating this order of elected rule.
Not since his announcement to run as our first bi-racial president nearly 2 years ago has Barack Obama looked so green. And, his color has nothing to do with conveying the clean energy message of his public relations director at G.E. or promoting liberal environmental policy.
Following today’s exchange, one fact emerged. If the Obama administration, and his liberal minions, spent half as much time going after radical Islamic terrorists as they do caterwauling blame at Dick Cheney and George W. Bush for the sins of man, they might actually garner the skill and ability demonstrated by the former administration to make America more secure. And, more importantly, Obama might actually gain consensus from the advanced citizenry of vintage America.
Astonishingly, however, even in the shadow of an 8-year absence of terrorist attacks in America, he remains obstinate in his criticism of the previous administration’s anti-terrorism interrogation methods without providing the valuable content of the information resulting from them or a new approach at crisis intelligence gathering. While Obama is preoccupied with his factless opinions that our methods of self preservation create enemies, he is dangerously ignorant to the fact that they, more importantly, have killed, detained and extracted valuable information from even more of them.
Under the same circumstance faced by the Bush Administration in September of 2001, Obama has yet to offer any distinguishable, coherent alternative describing what he would have done, or, more frighteningly, what he will do in the event of another attack. Yet, to his credit, based on this week’s earlier oscillations about prison abuse photos, he may be slowly embracing the reality that vintage America utterly rejects the ACLU’s semblance of authority on militarized national security issues. Finally.....an indication of sanity.
Obama, and the liberal establishment, are possessed by a delusion that our first obligation is to protect the hallucinated rights of foreign hordes to not be offended by us. For a man with such renowned intelligence and education as Obama has been promoted, he presents himself as very inept at understanding this.
An apparent master of sowing solutions by imposing complicit omission, Obama is very willing at excoriating vintage America about what is not permitted in its struggle against the murderous masses. However, he has no rendition for what actions are permitted in protecting ourselves. Obama’s lack of commitment to merely caterwaul about and apologize for what he thinks are the mistakes of others, without having a proactive and aggressive alternative stratagem, abandons middle America in their need to trust his leadership.
Liberal letches, lost in their extremely narrow view of vintage America’s contention against closing Gitmo, love to ignorantly presume the concern with an in-country alternative to the Guantanamo facility is all about the conservative fear of escaped terrorists. The lack of intelligence in this is shameful and aligns respectively with the idea that muslims have the right to cut off the heads of innocent Americans as an expression of their religious freedom.
Americans reject the closing of Gitmo not because they fear a potential physical threat of terrorists running through their yard. They reject it because they refuse to allow the opportunity for the evil of this twisted culture to spread throughout the minds of indigenous criminals currently held in America’s prison systems.
Only vintage Americans have the pragmatic capacity to understand this.
The promotion of religionist murder, framed within the psychosis of radical Islam, is a disease most easily spread through the demographics and purposelessness suffered by criminal and indigent cultures. After all, the terrorists in Guantanamo Bay were not born terrorists. They had to learn that the murder and hate of others unlike them was justifiable from someone more evil than them. They had to be convinced by someone that suicidal martyrdom was a duty of their existence and generational obligation.
Vintage America is abandoning the debate about American values because they are beginning to realize they are the home team in that contest. And, more distinctly, they are beginning to realize that Obama is actually losing credibility by chosing to blame rather than provide substantive actions to their resounding, desperate national security requirements.
Obama's suggestion that opening America's borders to deranged Islamofascists and storing them among conventional criminals, in view of our citizens, is not instilling confidence. The whole point of Gitmo is that it is a distant refuse depot for human garbage. It was constructed with this very purpose in mind.
Obama must be forced to understand that America's essential citizens have a simple answer to the questions of torture.
“Of course waterboarding is torture. That’s why it worked. It made bad people confess their evil intentions to kill us.”
And, they are thankful someone had the fortitude to make a decision during a crisis and risk being wrong, doing the unpleasant, unpopular, necessary thing when it mattered, rather than surrendering to the possibility of unpopularity while watching the destruction of our wonderful nation.
