Former Vice President Dick Cheney recently said President Obama is the “weakest” president of his lifetime. Mr. Cheney was reacting to Obama’s decision to swap five hardened Taliban commanders from Guantanamo for U.S. Army deserter Bowe Bergdahl.
While on the surface Mr. Cheney’s remarks make sense, I disagree with the premise that Obama is “weak.”
On the contrary, I would say America is weak, not Obama.
Obama is committed to his socialist redistribution of wealth agenda, and he is fulfilling his promise to fundamentally transform America!
Obama has been successfully dividing Americans like no other president in history.
Through his outrageous deeds and lies, Obama has revealed our lack of character and courage.
Betraying the military
The military is our strongest and most patriotic link, and even its weakness is being exposed and exploited.
The Bergdahl swap is the most recent example of Obama’s disregard for the military and rule of law. This act was tantamount to spitting in the face of our soldiers.
Yet, Obama has refused to issue an apology. In fact, the administration told military and intelligence officials who opposed the release of these “high risk” detainees to “suck it up and salute.”
Obama is also weakening the military and hurting morale by allowing open homosexuality. And he is purging the military of some of their best generals to reduce effectiveness and quash dissent.
Most veterans rely on their military pensions and benefits. Some work as government contractors. As a result, many are not willing to speak out against this administration for fear of retribution.
The Founding Fathers pledged “Our Lives, Our Fortunes, Our Sacred Honor” for the cause of freedom. In today’s America, some element of our inner character has been lost, even within our military. We have to encourage more of our servicemen to be as brave in the public arena as they are on the battlefield.
Dividing the races and classes
Most blacks voted for Obama based on race, and white voters were eager to prove that they were not racists.
Obama is using the anger that most blacks harbor toward whites by exploiting every perceived racial incident to intimidate whites. This is not weakness; it’s evil. Race and class warfare have given him increasing authority over the people.
Obama is creating more and more dependent Americans via unemployment and disability. The U.S. now has 90.6 million people who are unemployed (10 million more than when Obama took office).
The more people depend on handouts, the less likely they are to criticize big government. Obama is tightening the screws on the American people.
Controlling young people
He alone, who owns the youth, gains the future. – Adolf Hitler
Obama and his minions well understand the importance of capturing the hearts and minds of the youth. Obama’s “hope and change” campaign was just the beginning. Since being elected, he’s created an environment welcoming of everything that corrupts and enslaves, and hostile to everything that frees.
Note the left’s furor caused by former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice’s proposed commencement speech at Rutgers University; while former leftist radical and Black Panthers defender Angela Davis was reportedly paid $43,000 to speak at UCLA where she was showered with honors.
Most white Republicans are terrified at the prospect of being labeled a “racist” if they oppose the first black president.
Sen. Lindsey Graham threatened to have Obama impeached if he releases any more high-risk terrorist detainees – even though what Obama has already done fits the definition of treason – giving aid and comfort to the enemy.
Deceiving Christian pastors
Obama is promoting unrestricted abortion and homosexual marriage, furthering the destruction of society, yet few pastors speak out against this. Many are afraid to lose their tax-exempt status.
Controlling the media
This president has used the DOJ, the IRS and the media to target and silence some of his conservative critics.
He has control over most of the media. The line between the press and political operatives in the Obama administration is being distorted. Obama’s press secretary, Jay Carney, was a White House correspondent for Time Magazine, and he’s married to ABC News correspondent Claire Shipman. Reporters who go along are rewarded, while others – like James Rosen of Fox News – are harassed.
What we can do
Obama’s egregious acts have exposed our national weakness, but it is also giving us an opportunity to repair it.
The soldiers exposing deserter Bowe Bergdahl and this administration’s cover-up are real heroes. There are millions more like them who love and want to fight for this country. We need to encourage them and join with them.
We have to change as individuals and repent of our weakness. We must rebuild the family and restore morality back to our government. God said, “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land” (2 Chronicles 7:14).
If we put what is right above all, we will be strong and overcome Obama. After all, good does conquer evil!
