It must be the first of the month because Mr. Paul Drake of Victoria has written another letter- to -our editor complaining how President Obama is failing our country. Here is latest installment he titles “President Obama is not upholding his oath.”
It doesn’t surprise me that Mr. Drake doesn’t believe that President Obama has upheld his oath of office and he thinks that he has attempted to destroy or circumvent parts of the constitution. I don’t know where Mr. Drake was prior to January 20, 2009, but then again, he doesn’t really provide any proof of his accusations. He writes as though his theories are accepted facts, and they may be in his parallel universe.
The writer states that it’s quite obvious that President Obama does not like Israel as if that country doesn’t have varying opinions. The people of that country and its military leaders are not as anxious to go to war as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu seems to be. The prime minister’s skepticism is helpful in our dealings with Iran. Think about it; if Netanyahu backed the plan 100%, the Iranians would think they were giving up the store. Looking over their shoulder and worried about what Israel will do, will keep the Iranians in check during the negotiation period.
That part about the president’s Muslim heritage is nothing more than questioning the president’s Christianity.
President Obama has more understanding about Israel’s relationships with its enemies than Mr. Drake will ever know. The president’s advisers meet and discuss the situations from both sides and how it affects our country’s interest.
I don’t know what will happen if Iran decides to build a nuclear weapon but I don’t think we’ll ever contemplate nuking them or engage them in a land war. Israel might try some targeted air strikes which will definitely create more chaos in the Middle East. I don’t think giving peace a chance is a bad strategy.
It’s funny how a sound bite “liar” can be accepted as Obama being the most prolific prevaricator in presidential history. Oh how quickly we forget, Iran- Contra, Watergate, WMD, and the other lies that comes from occupying the oval office. That honor will be bestowed on many future presidents because things aren’t always as they seem to be.
Is it just me or is it this time during the year when Christians seem to act less Christian? I hear conservatives wanting to cut off unemployment compensation, cut food stamps, and balk at raising the minimum-wage and lord forbid poor people getting affordable health care. What’s hating Muslims got to do with being a good Christian? It seems like the letter writer, and some posters think that you can’t be a Muslim and an American patriot at the same time. the president of the United States should always denigrate Muslims or he will be put in the camp of helping the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaida.
