Obama's Need To Be Loved - Dangerous

In 1505, Nicolo Machiavelli, wrote The Prince, a treatise on political power. In it, Machiavelli posed the age old question, "Is it better for the Prince to be loved or feared", which could be applied to anyone in a leadership position. This blogger believes the answer is that a leader needs to be respected first; but feared as a last result. A leader that needs to be loved, like Socialist President Obama, is not tough enough. Richard Nixon used to say that the world needed to believe that the President of the United States was just crazy enough to push the nuclear button so that it would never have to be pushed.

Once again, the world has seen that Islamic Terrorists, that wish us dead, working from Yemen, attempted to blow up cargo planes, or their real targets, which were churches and Jewish institutions, by mailing explosives to these entities. As such, we continue to see the need for a strong national defense, both to secure our border and to fight Islamic Fascist Terrorists that seek to destroy our freedoms and way of life. However, not only do we need a strong national defense, we need a strong President, who is both respected and feared around the world. That is not Barack Obama.

Unfortunately, Socialist President Obama needs to be loved, which is a clear and present danger to our nation. Obama does not realize that when he bows to foreign leaders presumably to show cultural deference, that this is viewed as weakness around the world, not strength. Obama has unilaterally limited our nuclear arsenal and closed down missile defense in Eastern Europe, that had been planned by the Bush Administration, without getting anything in return from the Russians, or those that would seek to use nuclear weapons against our country.

Obama wants to close Guantanamo, which is a perfectly suitable prison for Terrorists off our shores and try Terrorists in federal courts, where they would be given the rights of American citizens, rather than by military tribunal, in order to "reach out the to Muslim world". This is not only ridiculous, it signals Obama's weakness not strength. Finally, when the President appears on a comedy show, and the host calls the President "Dude" to his face as the audience is laughing at the President, rather than with the President, Obama diminishes the office of the Presidency and his power in the eyes of the world.

While I have little respect for Obama because he has accomplished nothing of significance in his life, if I ever met him, I would address him as Mr. President, not in deference to the man, but in reverence for the office of the Presidency and what it represents. The very notion that Jon Stewart, a silly comedian, would refer to the President as "Dude" to his face is not only an insult to the American people, it is downright dangerous because it diminishes the office of the Presidency in the eyes of the world.

President Bush called it right after 9/11, when he said of other countries that they are either "with us, or against us" in our fight against Terrorism. Those that are against us are effectively at war either directly, or by proxy with the United States. It should be pretty obvious that Iran, that supports Terrorism and is developing nuclear weapons, is our enemy. Yet the State Department just sent Iran's Fascist leader a tweet birthday wish. If she approved it, what the heck is Secretary of State Hillary Clinton thinking?

Islamic Terrorists, that want to murder Americans and those that support them around the world are our enemies; yet President Obama can't bring himself to say this. Instead, Obama sugar coats all of this and looks for other words to call these people because he fears offending the Muslim world. However, the reality is that Islamic Fascist Terrorists are also at war with Muslim governments attempting to be part of the modern world. As such, this is really a battle about living in the 21st century, or going back to the 8th century, which is what Islamic Fascists desire. To be clear, we are not at war with Islam. We are at war with Islamic Fascist Terrorists and the countries that support them.

Clearly, these Islamic Terrorists and any country that supports them, but certainly not all Muslims, are our enemy. In waging the war in Iraq and Afghanistan, we played the Terrorists' game, which is not the way to destroy them. If we are going to properly fight Terrorism, we must make it clear to any country that supports Terrorists that they are an enemy of the United States. In doing so, we should use our economic power, in coordination with other threatened countries, including Muslim countries under attack, to shut them down, which means no banking, no air travel, no shipping.

In other words, countries that support Terrorism and threaten the United States should have no commercial relations in the world economy. We can make that happen with some arm twisting by passing a law that says that any company that does business with a Terrorist nation, cannot do business in the United States. It really is that simple.

Next, when ever an attack on the United States is planned from any country in the world, if that country does not immediately act to stop such acts, or otherwise turn over the Terrorist leaders to us, the United States in concert with other countries, should use air power to destroy their military and if their aggressive acts continue, their entire infrastructure. If these people want to live in the 8th century, we can make that happen by playing our game, not their game.

In order to deal with the Terrorist threat, we must sweep these Socialists out of office in 2010 and 2012 that are weak on defense, including President Obama. Socialists are just not tough enough. Obama's need to be loved is dangerous to our nation. As such, we must make Obama a one term President and elect Conservatives in 2010 and 2012 willing to preserve and protect our nation by securing our border to prevent Terrorists from entering our country and making certain that our military is second to none. In a nuclear age, our very existence as a nation depends on a both a strong President and national defense.

We have to take back our country in 2010 and 2012 by electing Conservatives that support free market capitalism, limited government, lower taxes and less regulations, a balanced budget, term limits, real energy independence and health care reform, a strong national defense, including securing our border and fighting Terrorism, the right to bear arms, the sanctity of life and family values. This is the winning platform supported by the majority of the American people and the only way to restore our economy and job creation in America.

Most important, we must elect Conservatives who will adhere to the Constitution, as written by our Founding Fathers, not as contrived by the left wing media, Socialists Obama, Reid, Pelosi, former Presidents, Congresses, or the Courts. We must take back our country in 2010 and 2012. We can do it. We will do it to preserve our freedoms, our nation and way of life and for the sake of our children and grandchildren. In the mean time, President Obama needs to "man up" to defend our country rather than worry about being loved. Oh where, oh where is Ronald Reagan when we need him?
