I will confess I have a football education. I had difficulty reading after I graduated from college. My English grades were pretty poor. If I had not been a ‘stud’ on campus then I would have no doubt flunked. I learned to read after college, but I’m still not one who can zip through a book. I labor, but I read. My spelling sucks and many times I don’t use a word because I can’t get close enough for spell-check to figure out. I am blessed with common sense. I have enough brains not to stand out in the middle of a rain-storm when there is a barn near by. One reader once said, “You are under-educated and over opinionated.” Sounds ’bout right to me. Some days I sit down to write and I’m so tired my fingers won’t function…my brain has cramps and since I’m dyslexic I get things turned around. I put the last part of a sentence first. I do have faults, but giving up is not one of them. I see what’s happening to our country and want to do something. Blogging seems to be one way I can say what’s on my mind. I’m not perfect, but I do try and that is a lot more than most are doing.
I used the word inept to start this blog. I think back when the Somalian pirates held our ship captain and it took our president three days to give the Navy SEALS the okay to shoot. He kept the captain’s life in the balances while he was trying to make a decision. Finally he was forced to give them the okay. Bang, bang, bang! The pirates had holes in their heads. That could have happened the first day.
General McCrystal asked for 40,000 to 60,000 troops to fight in the Afghan war. Obama dithered around for months. He was frozen with fear. He knew if he sent more men/women his liberal base would be upset. If he didn’t then the American people were going to march on Washington by the millions. When he said he would send 30,000 he immediately explained that he would start bringing them home June 2011. Most of them won’t even get there for a year.
I have come to the conclusion Barry Obama is weaker than Jimmy Carter. Carter would have given orders to take the pirates out day one. Carter would have immediately sent troops. This near fatal bombing over Detroit would have been addressed immediately by Jimmy Carter. No matter if he was on vacation, Carter would have assured the American people we were going to take swift action. Carter would not have continued his golf game.
Mr. Obama waited three days before he addressed the Nation and then he said it was an isolated case of some loony loner. When in fact he knew that Umar Farouk Adulmutallab was trained by the Al Quada in Yemen. Umar’s father warned the CIA months earlier that his son was up to something drastic. Our National Intelligence knew that Al Quada was planning a Christmas Surprise. Why were we not ready? Did we think they would pull the Christmas Surprise December 26??? When will we start profiling?
Hillary was right. Who do you want to answer the phone when it rings at 3AM. I’d take Jimmy Carter over Obama and trust me, I never thought it was possible for us to have a weaker president than the peanut farmer. I promise this, Bill Clinton would not have waited three days. He would have found an aspirin factory and blew it up. We will be dealing with this ineptness for three more years. We cannot change what we have until 2012. Then let’s make it one and done for the man with the big ears. We will vote him out of office . Let’s start the change this November. email: email@example.com
