President Obama and Libya Part II

President Obama states he held off on any criticism of Libya until after American citizens were safely out of the country. The facts are simple.

  1. 2 weeks ago we moved our Naval Ships out of the Area.
  2. Britain and France used their Military to get their people out of well ahead of our people
  3. Our people had to wait while a private ferry our Government chartered could sail and get our people out of the country.  

I submit, he put politics ahead of our citizens safety. He did not react because he did not want a hostage situation like President Carter had in Iran.  Such an event could jeopardize his re-election as it did to President Carter. His concern was not our citizens but his re – election. If their welfare was his primary concern, Navy ships would have been on site sooner to evacuate our people. They would not have been left to a private charter.   

By comparison, President Carter lost because:

  1. Turmoil in the Middle East and hostages being taken
  2. US seen as weak and unable to handle hostage situation
  3. Economy in a mess – inflation reached double digits
  4. Unemployment high

Starting to sound familiar??? 

  1. 2012 is coming!!!!!
