You have to give Obama credit, this is a man who knows how to deal with a crisis. Some nut like Mitt Romney would run around shooting Muslims from the hip, but Obama meets with his advisers and dutifully studies ways to make each and every crisis that much worse. Because thats what good government is.
Obamas Sequestration Plan Would Cut $1.084 Billion From The State Departments Diplomatic And Consular Program, Including $2 Million For The Protection Of Foreign Missions And Officials, And $129 Million For Embassy Security, Construction, And Maintenance. (OMB Report Pursuant To The Sequestration Transparency Act Of 2012, Office Of Management And Budget, pp. 135-136, 9/14/12)
Err what do embassies need security for anyway? What are the real odds of a bunch of Muslim Jihadists deciding to carry out a series of embassy attacks timed with September 11? Also who needs 20,000 Marines, lets cut that money and put it into Solyandra and free condoms for Catholic schools.
But thats okay. Stop looking at the negative and focus on the positive.
I know the images on our televisions are disturbing. But let us never forget that for every angry mob, there are millions who yearn for the freedom, and dignity, and hope that our flag represents. That is the cause of America the ideals that took root in our founding; the opportunity that drew so many to our shores; and the awesome progress that we have promoted all across the globe.
Theres a silver lining for every cloud. For every Muslim who is burning an American embassy, theres a Muslim yearning to move to America and bomb our bars, planes and Christmas tree lighting events.
Who needs security anyway?
To be transferred to another entitlement program...
Someone once said that “Timing is everything”. Boy, does Obama have good timing, and probably good rhythmn too, according to Joe Biden.
Please send this article to all your friends and enemies.
Security, bah! Overrated
I doubt Hillary’s secrity is getting cut.
Makes one wonder what the setup is.
Everybody loves and respects us now that we have 0bama to lead us. Who needs security?
Obama is sabotaging America. Is there any evidence to dispute that? NO. Assault on two fronts; Weaken our economy by bankrupting us and dispensing entitlements to an extent we’ll never recover from and secondly, lessen our standing in the world and make recovery impossible through ‘destructive’ defense cuts. He’s accomplished both.
Not insanity. Evil.
How about just getting the hell out of most of these countries ruled by people who believe in a cult of a religion? Good lord!
a vacationing Jarrett...
If he were a Republican the media would have spent 4 years trashing this guy
Is Zero still planning on giving the Egyptians a billion dollars for two German submarines?
Cutting embassy security and arming the Islamic Brotherhood.
If you didn’t know better, you might conclude from this that the American president’s a Muslim.
It’s time to hit the alarm bell...
Sad times, just sad times for the USA :(
People like obama would never even have a chance in politics or leadership if most of America wasn’t enthralled with the BS out of Hollywood or professional sports.
We can quote sports stats and who is shtupping who in reality tv but for Pete’s sake, the average American has no clue about the real life issues; like the ones that are going to ensure their childrens lives as slaves to the government or some damn UN agenda.
We MUST change how we educate our young so they don’t elect someone whose loyalties and identity are suspect.
The Obama Bucks gotta come from some place.
