Rising Gas Prices and Obama's Failure to Lead

Membership in the United Nations is Like Having Obama President for a Second Term - UNTHINKABLE

I can think of a lot of different ways for the United States to commit national suicide, but none faster than remaining as a member of the United Nations. 

On top of that, our leader in the White House is all for it; if he thought he could somehow get away with it, he would just signal his sub-rosa (they think) leaders, Soros and the Bilderberg Group of maniacally wealthy would-be despots who want to own the world and they would come marching in.


The first problem with that is that the U.N. doesn’t have the first clue as to how to “march in” on anybody.  Have you noticed how effective they are not in solving ANY of the world’s problems?  They know they’re an impotent force and even worse when they can’t use our power.

Any time there is a tragic event at some point on the planet, the first one in is unfailingly the United States.  Even with Obama as POTUS with all his reluctance to help anyone except in those places where there is a majority population of Islams.  In the wake of 9/11 he was quoted by the press as saying of them that “I will stand with them should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.” (From “Audacity of Hope.”)

Obama also instructed his Secretary of State, the devious and equally anti-American values Hillary Clinton, to seek secret deals with the U. N. to take our weapons away from us among other treaties as they come to her traitorous mind.

In a Human Events.com on March 16, 2011 in a Newt Gingrich letter titled, “Rising Gas Prices and Obama’s Failure to Lead” many examples of this failure to provide leadership for our country are found.

And, as this is being written, in the wake of St. Patrick’s Day while much turmoil is taking place in the world; unrest in numerous countries in the Middle East most dangerously in Libya just weeks after the tumult in Egypt where President Mubarak was driven out of the country while Obama played his Nero-like fiddle; and where the lives of one of the most populous countries in the world, Japan, are in danger of perishing from the after-effects of an earthquake/tsunami of major proportions which should have Obama’s attention on a 24/7 basis, he blithely slips out of town to visit some South American countries on other business matters.

As Gingrich says, “At times when our nation most needs presidential leadership, Barack Obama chooses to let others take the lead.”  I feel that he would be happy if the United Nations were more active in matters such as mentioned in the previous paragraph so he wouldn’t have to deal with the press over them.  He prefers other problems such as mapping out his next vacation where Michelle and the kids can do some shopping.

“We saw this pattern begin in the early stages of his administration. The country was beginning to slide into a deep recession, and bold action was needed quickly to turn the tide. However, rather than develop an aggressive plan on his own and fight for its passage in Congress, the new president opted instead to allow Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid to design the plan. The result was the $787 billion stimulus boondoggle” said Gingrich.

“Then same thing happened with the president’s health care plan. Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid were given power to design the plan, resulting in the president placing himself in the odd position where he had to defend the individual mandate despite the fact he campaigned against it in the 2008 Democratic primary.” 

Obama is never ready to accept responsibility or the duties of our country’s leader and as Gingrich pointed out in his letter, Obama promised in his State of the Union address to take the lead on returning the country to a balanced budget and then submitted a budget failing in that objective.  He left his responsibilities up to Congress to solve. 

I have reiterated often before in this column that I can not for the life of me understand how he can manage to so totally fool so many of our people concerning his abysmal job performance.  That the 20 to 25 percent of the welfare class and illegal aliens would support him there is no doubt; he is given credit for all of the entitlements, even those they receive as benefits from past administrations and congresses. 

But when his approval numbers reach into the mid 40s percent level, though they have been slipping over the past few weeks with his feeble handling of the Middle East eruptions, it is a bit mind boggling.  How can so many people be so blind to his actual performances as opposed to his glib speeches? 

It’s obviously true that there are places where the sun never shines.
