The charge that Barack Obama isn’t looking out for America’s interests has been around since his election.
But it reached new heights this week amid an impending nuclear deal with Iran, with critics contending the “framework agreement” allows the rogue Islamic regime that repeatedly has vowed to wipe Israel off the map to obtain a nuclear bomb.
Former Vice President Dick Cheney told Hugh Hewitt on his radio show that Obama’s actions are exactly what would be expected of a president who wants “to take America down.”
And talk-radio icon Rush Limbaugh was blunt, citing Obama’s acknowledgement that after the 10-year agreement ends, Iran would be in a position to build a nuclear weapon.
“This is unstated, but everybody ought to realize that Obama’s worldview on this is that we don’t have the right to tell them they don’t get a nuclear weapon. In fact, everybody ought to realize: He wants them to have a nuclear weapon,” Limbaugh said.
On Hewitt’s show, Cheney said: “For most of the last 70 years since World War II, we’ve had a bipartisan record in this country between Democrat and Republican. Harry Truman, Jack Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson, Ronald Reagan, Dwight Eisenhower, the Bushes believed America had to play a leading role in the world and needs to maintain first class military capability to do that and occasionally use it. That the world works best with U.S. leadership. The first president, really, who doesn’t – no longer believe that fundamental truth is Barack Obama.”
He continued: “If you had somebody who, as president – who wanted to take America down. Who wanted to fundamentally weaken our position in the world, reduce our capacity to influence events. Turn our back on our allies and encourage our enemies, it would look exactly like what Barack Obama is doing.
“I think his actions are constituted in my mind are those of the worst president we’ve ever had.”
Listen to Cheney:
And Limbaugh said: “Obama’s out there, and he let the cat out of the bag, that everything [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu has said about the Iran deal is true, that the Iranians are gonna get a nuke courtesy of Barack Obama and the United States. Obama went out there and admitted it himself. And that’s the story about in 10 to 13 years they’re gonna be able to nuke up. Essentially they have promised to stay one year away from weaponizing their uranium for ten years. So they’re one year away now, five years from now they’re supposed to stay one year away.”
Limbaugh continued: “He said what he said. He meant to say what he said. He said exactly what the deal is, and he wasn’t supposed to, apparently. … And then after 10 years, the original report was they have a green light; they can go ahead and weaponize. After 10 years of getting close but holding back. Part of the original report was that Obama was not worried about this, because, again … Now, this is unstated, but everybody ought to realize that Obama’s worldview on this is that we don’t have the right to tell them they don’t get a nuclear weapon. In fact, everybody ought to realize: He wants them to have a nuclear weapon!”
The charge that Obama is “the Anti-American president” isn’t new.
During Obama’s first term, Boyd Richard Boyd wrote at American Thinker that actions by the president that have harmed the country aren’t due to incompetence.
“There has been talk of his inexperience, incompetence, or just plain stupidity to explain his Bizarro administration. However, Obama is not incompetent; he is an intelligent, anti-American president. Obama is not a failure at this job – his job is the failure of our country,” Boyd wrote.
He said believing Obama is stupid is the easy way out.
“Every American must judge Obama and his ideas and understand he does mean what he says, and realize there is no excuse, save one – Barack Obama is an anti-American in thought and deed,” he wrote. “Obama gets dreams from his socialist father. His mother was a fellow traveler. Obama lived in anti-American Indonesia as a child. Later, granddad decided Obama need a Communist mentor. O got into Harvard on the recommendation of anti-Semitic Khalid al Mansour, an adviser to Saudi Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal. In college, O chose his friends carefully – ‘the more politically active black students, foreign students, Chicanos, Marxist professors and structural feminists.”
The essay noted Obama taught Marxist tactics and has stated there are fundamental flaws in the Constitution.
Such concerns have ratcheted up just recently.
In February, the Washington Examiner reported retired Adm. James “Ace” Lyons, who commanded the U.S. Pacific Fleet, called out Obama’s intent.
“The Obama administration has a strategy. It is very simple. Any thinking American should be able to grasp it. It’s anti-American, anti-Western. It’s pro-Islamic, pro-Iranian, and pro-Muslim Brotherhood,” he said.
Around then, former Virginia Gov. Jim Gilmore cited Obama’s downplaying of the horrific torture and abuse by ISIS by stating that bad things also had been done by Christians in the name of Jesus.
“I believe America can be a force for good in the world in the 21st century, just as we were in the 20th century. I believe that American must exercise that role, and stand up for America’s values and American security. This is a moment of new danger to America’s culture of freedom and human dignity. That challenge cannot be avoided. And that’s why the president’s Prayer Breakfast speech was the most offensive I’ve every heard a president make in my lifetime.”
At Front Page Magazine, author David Horowitz said, “Obama is an anti-American. He supports the terrorists, he’s supporting Hamas in this battle. He supports the Muslim Brotherhood, which is the fountainhead of al-Qaida and all the terrorist groups in the Middle East. He is leading a retreat of America from the world. He is taking us down as a nation. He’s an anti-American radical with communist views.”
At the Western Journalism Center, Obama’s philosophies were described as “antithetical to the survival of the Constitution and the American republic.”
And longtime political adviser Dick Morris pointed out the $900 million Obama’s administration sent to Hamas, his decision to “Free the Guantanamo terrorists” and his desire to prosecute criminally those who interrogated terrorists to uncover threats.
Keith Ablow wrote on FoxNews.com, “The president, even before taking office showed his underlying, perhaps partly unconscious, contempt for America and its historic place as an international force for freedom.”
Ron Eklund wrote in the Des Moines Register: “Obama has gone from being viewed as a political messiah, to repeatedly demonstrating incompetence, to being downright dangerous to American interests both domestically and internationally. If the mainstream press had made any attempt to vet him or even read his own words they could have predicted his desire to promote an extreme left wing ‘transformation’ of the United States. Giuliani is correct when he observes that Obama does not love America. I believe that future historians will refer to him as our first anti-American president.”
And at Freedom Outpost, Lawrence Selling described the “anti-American political philosophies underlying the policies of Barack Hussein Obama,” who was called the “juncture of three ideologies: socialism, Islam and opportunistic racism.”
