Despicable Leadership vs. Sound Leadership
Not too often in the same week do we witness such contrasting leadership—excellent versus despicably horrible leadership. This week certainly holds true when one compares this sitting president to Greg Abbott, our courageous Attorney General.
If only everyone throughout Washington led as our Attorney General led this week! What an honorable man who sent the message to the UN election observers that if they dare to show up in Texas and found within 100 feet of any polling place, they will be subject to criminal prosecution. Our Texas hero!
As Conservatives predicted, it would only be a matter of time that the Benghazi cover-up would begin to unfold. Obama, Clinton, Rice, Axelrod, Carney and Panetta must be squirming that they couldn’t keep their fairy tale story under wraps, while the big O falsely claimed that he’s ahead in the polls, used profanity during the Rollingstone interview and acted childish during the last presidential debate this week.
One can only surmise how the media would be jumping down Romney’s throat if he had called the big O a bull******* or if he had let four innocent Americans die right before his eyes—still with NO apologies for the most inept leadership.
As this administration is hell bent on financially controlling every profession except the legal field and the left wing major media outlets, does one ponder why this president hasn’t required the left wing major media outlets do their job in getting to the bottom of a national scandal or severe financial penalties would be inflicted if such tasks were not completed?
It’s further not surprising that Congress’ likability ratings spiked this week to a whopping 21%—simply because Congress is taking a seven-week hiatus. At least we’re not enduring Congress’ binge spending.
Are we fed up with the double standard from this president, as we again hear about his selective choices with specific GM workers? If one fell under the Delphi pension (nonunion workers), their pensions were lost; whereas if one was a UAW worker (union), every single pension was saved in its entirety. When did the American people get the choice of which GM workers were bailed out?
So while Leon Panetta tells the American people that “You don’t deploy forces into harm’s way without knowing what’s going on without having some real-time information about what’s taking place,” when we did, in fact, have a drone circling overhead sending real-time live feed and the anguished pleas for a rescue, it is time that we admit that we have a seriously flawed leadership and the whole group needs to go.
We had Special Ops only 400 miles away—a short two-hour flight—and no one in Washington took charge to save four innocent lives from perishing? Conservatives have stated for a very long time that this administration does not have the backs of our military.
So with a drone over Benghazi, the administration must have been expecting something because it’s not standard practice to have drones circling our consulates worldwide. In carrying that thought a step further, then with speculation and then with observation in place, why wouldn’t this administration do the right thing and save as many lives as possible who were begging for help? “Too risky,” one ponders? Wasn’t the Bin Laden raid risky? No dangerous mission is 100% safe. Save the taxpayers money and shut the Senate Select Intelligence Committee down from beginning their closed hearings on 11/15, for we already can speculate what the Democratic Senate’s conclusion will be.
Michael Scheuer, former CIA operative, stated it so eloquently this week when he said that Obama “is a despicable man in terms of being commander in chief.” This leadership is beyond despicable. This president’s clothes are blood soaked. The House should have begun impeachment proceedings Year 1. Shame on you for not listening to the Conservative voices across the country.
Our household foreign debt now climbs to $47,495, what has nearly doubled from $27,000 since 2009. If you can’t lead economically, you certainly can’t lead diplomatically. When you can’t do both, it’s not necessary to apply for the highest position in the land.
We salute our military.
