An Untrustworthy White House
One person was killed and dozens more were injured when protesters attempted to storm a U.S. outpost in Pakistan. More flag covered coffins will arrive in the U.S. after four American soldiers died over the weekend as a result of ‘insider’ attacks in Afghanistan. There are claims a video shows U.S. Libyan Ambassador Chris Stevens being dragged through the streets to the delight of a jeering crowd. Sudan rejected an American request to send Marines in to guard the U.S embassy. Hardline Islamist television is openly inciting anti-American violence in Egypt and elsewhere. Reports are that many of those participating in the “spontaneous” demonstrations are getting paid to protest. While acknowledging it has elite troops stationed in Syria, Iran is calling for oil prices to reach $150 a barrel. Libyan officials maintain they warned the U.S. three days before the attack on America’s Benghazi consulate.
There are people who hate America. The Obama administration is now making excuses for them. They have apologized to them. Obama has bowed before their kings. In the form of foreign aid, they are still trying to bribe them with money borrowed from China. Despite Obama’s claims that his election would change Islamist attitudes towards the U.S., the people who have hated America for many long decades still hate America.
Still, U N Ambassador Susan Rice and the entire Obama administration continues to insist that it was all due to an almost entirely unknown video: “In Cairo, as you know, a few hours earlier, there was a violent protest that was undertaken in reaction to this very offensive video that was disseminated. We believe that folks in Benghazi, a small number of people came to the embassy to – or to the consulate, rather, to replicate the sort of challenge that was posed in Cairo.”
The Obama foreign policy of appeasement towards those who openly desire to destroy America has failed. In typical Obama fashion, they have chosen a scapegoat and, along with the obedient lapdogs in the “progressive” Party Pravda, carefully orchestrated a full bore propaganda campaign designed to brainwash Americans into believing their lie.
If the White House insisted that the earth is flat would Americans be expected to blindly accept that too? Just because Obama said so? Just because Chris Matthews, Brian Williams, George Stephanopoulos et al dutifully repeated that lie?
Is this who America wants to oversee foreign policy and initialize economic recovery?
In the past month the producer price index jumped 1.7 percent, the biggest gain in three years. Gasoline and food prices continue to soar. Gasoline alone rose by 13.6 percent. The median income of American households has continued to decline, dropping to its lowest level since 1995. 2011 median income fell to $50,054, which is 4.1 per cent below the median income level when Obama took office.
Despite economists’ predictions that initial unemployment benefit claims would rise to 370,000, they rose to a seasonally adjusted 382,000, the highest in two months. Consistent with a clear and consistent pattern of deception shown since the current administration began, figures from the prior week were once again revised upwards, showing there were 2,000 more applications than what had been originally reported. This subsequent upwards revision of unemployment claims has taken place with every report since Obama took office.
The jobless rate staying over 8 percent for more than three years is the longest since the Great Depression. Hiring in America is not even increasing fast enough to keep up with population growth, much less change the outlook for tens of millions of Americans. “Official” unemployment dropped from 8.3 percent to 8.1 percent only because so many Americans have dropped entirely out of the labor force. They have given up on the idea of finding work in an economy stifled and smothered by failed “progressive” economic policies.
America is not better off than it was four years ago. In fact, at home and abroad, America is far worse off. On all fronts, Obama’s policies have been met with abject failure.
With fifty days remaining before the November 6th election, Americans must make a choice.
The choice is between retaining the failure of an utterly disingenuous, irresponsible, ineffective, excuse making Obama administration, and supporting the promise of a new American revival in choosing strong, honest, reliable, responsible leadership by electing Mitt Romney.
