For a man who promised to break out of the Bush view of the world, it seems Obama has had a change of heart. Well not really. All he is talking about is battling the oil spill as it invades the US coastline. Our president will ascribe human motives and capabilities to an inanimate object - oil. But he will not use the same terms where they belong, out on the battlefield of Iraq and Afghanistan. Or even closer to home, in the United States itself. An Army deserter and female companion try to gain access to MacDill AFB, which is CENTCOM HQ, and we have a Ft. Gordon another person gained access to the post armed with things like flash bang grenades.
Luckily we have brave Horatius still guarding the bridge or in this case the guard shack at two bases on American soil. In both cases the people were stopped before they could do any harm, unlike the Ft. Hood massacre by Nidal Hassan. Or the harm of another type a Specialist named Manning has inflicted upon the United States and its efforts to stem global terrorism, which the Obama administration now calls man-caused disasters.
I truly wish the Obama administration would focus with laser like precision on each task like stopping the oil leak in the gulf of Mexico. Instead Okaloosa has voted to defend its beaches and ignore the Fedearl dictats. It was another verbal mistake for Obama to invoke Kennedy's man on the moon vision when Johnson Space Center in Houston, Michoud outside New Orleans, Stennis in Mississippi, and Kennedy Space Center are facing the loss of thousands of high tech jobs because Obama cut Orion and Constellation. Now these states are seeing even more job losses and environmental destruction because Emperor Obama has been too busy golfing and dancing. Though have no fear, Obama has nominated a new Czar to deal with the oil spill and tossed the whole fiasco onto the desk of Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus.
Instead we saw last night a true leadership failure as Obama ignored the current problem in order to push his cherished delusion of enacting climate control legislation disguised as green energy independence. So the only thing this laser 'precision' has seemingly punctured is Obama's credibility. Shooting onself in the foot, even in a political sense, is a painful thing. For the Left who put Obama on a pedestal and gave him a platinum halo, it must truly hurt to realize their cherished 'god' doth bleed.
