Media outlets in the United States have begun publishing lists of reasons why President Obama should not be re-elected in next weeks presidential election.
The reasons given are many and varied but generally include the countries dismal economic performance during his time in office…the massive financial deficit and debt he has run up which is crippling the country as we speak…his amateurish, doctrinaire foreign policy and his utterly failed performance on the world stage…his socialist, big government agenda…his constant lying to the American people…the dogs breakfast that is Obamacare…his politics of division, racism and class…an administration which is filled with hacks and incompetents…the erosion of civil liberties which has occurred under his presidency…his disrespect for the rule of law and the boundaries of his office and his ignoring of both on many occasions…terrorist attacks at home and abroad and the rising tide of anti-Americanism around the world, particularly in the Middle East…his failure to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons…his lack of a plan for a second term except more of the same…his degradation of the country and its values…Benghazi and so on. Those aren’t the only reasons by any means but they are generally the ones that have been popping up in most lists.
This past September 11 American Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens and three other Americans were murdered in a well-coordinated Islamic terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi. Stevens was raped and his body was mutilated. The attack lasted seven hours or thereabouts and there were several urgent requests for assistance while it was going on. Obama had real time awareness of the events as they unfolded and refused to authorize military intervention which would have resulted in the American’s rescue even though military intervention was readily available, thus abandoning Stevens and the others to their fate. We don’t know why Obama failed to rescue them even though he could have done so…we just know that he did and that it was most likely for partisan political reasons in this election season…it certainly wasn’t for military reasons. His failure to rescue Ambassador Stevens and the others was a clear dereliction of duty and amounted to murder because it meant that he was complicit in their deaths, that he in effect approved their deaths and allowed them to happen. It was callous and treasonous and one more indication that he is a totally unfit for office and needs to be removed as soon as possible.
Like in next weeks election.
Americans lives and the life of the country depend on it.
