Israel aside, I still agree with this meme...  The abstention from voting at the UN was obviously more than Kerry, and the Ambassador to the UN.  obama is behind that.  It has his mark all over it.  Does it matter, in a "real" sense, to Israel?  Probably not.  It does show the world that the US can no longer be trusted to stand with her allies...

Changing the subject just a little bit:  I read this on a friend's fb page this morning...  Sums it up pretty well.  (Thanks to Patrick Kelly.)

The Architect of Destruction
By Maureen Scott

Barack Obama appears to be a tormented man filled with resentment, anger, and disdain for anyone of an opinion or view other than his. He acts in the most hateful, spiteful, malevolent, vindictive ways in order to manipulate and maintain power and control over others. Perhaps, because, as a child, he grew up harboring an abiding bitterness toward the U.S. that was instilled in him by his family and mentors…it seems to have never left him.

It is not the color of his skin that is a problem in America .  Rather it is the blackness that fills his soul and the hollowness in his heart where there should be abiding pride and love for this country.

Think: Have we ever heard Obama speak lovingly of the U.S. or its people, with deep appreciation and genuine respect for our history, our customs, our sufferings and our blessings? Has he ever revealed that, like most patriotic Americans, he gets "goose bumps" when a band plays "The Star Spangled Banner," or sheds a tear when he hears a beautiful rendition of " America the Beautiful?" Does his heart burst with pride when millions of American flags wave on a National holiday - or someone plays "taps" on a trumpet? Has he ever shared the admiration of the military, as we as lovers of those who keep us free, feel when soldiers march by? It is doubtful because Obama did not grow up sharing our experiences or our values. He did not sit at the knee of a Grandfather or Uncle who showed us his medals and told us about the bravery of his fellow troops as they tramped through foreign lands to keep us free. He didn't have grandparents who told stories of suffering and then coming to America , penniless, and the opportunities they had for building a business and life for their children.

Away from this country as a young child, Obama didn't delight in being part of America and its greatness. He wasn't singing our patriotic songs in kindergarten, or standing on the roadside for a holiday parade and eating a hot dog, or lighting sparklers around a campfire on July 4th as fireworks exploded over head, or placing flags on the grave sites of fallen and beloved American heroes.

Rather he was separated from all of these experiences and doesn't really understand us and what it means to be an American. He is void of the basic emotions that most feel regarding this country and insensitive to the instinctive pride we have in our national heritage. His opinions were formed by those who either envied us or wanted him to devalue the United States and the traditions and patriotism that unites us.

He has never given a speech that is filled with calm, reassuring, complimentary, heartfelt statements about all the people in the U.S. Or one that inspires us to be better and grateful and proud that in a short time our country became a leader, and a protector of many. Quite the contrary, his speeches always degenerate into mocking, ridiculing tirades as he faults our achievements as well as any critics or opposition for the sake of a laugh, or to bolster his ego. He uses his Office to threaten and create fear while demeaning and degrading any American who opposes his policies and actions. A secure leader, who has noble self-esteem and not false confidence, refrains from showing such dread of critics and displaying a cocky, haughty attitude.

Mostly, his time seems to be spent causing dissension, unrest, and anxiety among the people of America , rather than uniting us (even though he was presented to us as the "Great Uniter"). He creates chaos for the sake of keeping people separated, envious, aggrieved and ready to argue. Under his leadership Americans have been kept on edge, rather than in a state of comfort and security. He incites people to be aggressive toward, and disrespectful of, those of differing opinions. And through such behavior, Obama has lowered the standards for self-control and mature restraint to the level of street-fighting gangs, when he should be raising the bar for people to strive toward becoming more considerate, tolerant, self-disciplined, self-sustaining, and self-assured.

Not a day goes by that he is not attempting to defy our laws, remove our rights, over-ride established procedures, install controversial appointees, enact divisive mandates, and assert a dictatorial form of power.
Never has there been a leader of this great land who used such tactics to harm and hurt the people and this country.

· Never have we had a President who spoke with a caustic, evil tongue against the citizenry rather than present himself as a soothing, calming and trustworthy force.

· Never, in this country, have we experienced how much stress one man can cause a nation of people - on a daily basis!

Obama has promoted the degeneration of peace, civility, and quality of cooperation between us. He thrives on tearing us down, rather than building us up. He is the Architect of the decline of America , and the epitome of a Demagogue.

Fuck obama.

All so very true, and I am darned sick of it. I just hope we can get to January 20 before he destroys what's left of our nation. He sure is trying.

I think he tried and failed. I see the election of 2016 as a repudiation of obama, the Democrat Party, and the Progressive philosophy. Sure, the Left and their puppets, er, pundits, will gnash their teeth for months talking about what happened in the election. They will proselytize for hours on why Hillary got beat. I think, deep down, they know that most Americans were tired of being told that they were racists every time they engaged with a Liberal. I think most of America finally realized that that the only thing tolerant about the Left is, well, nothing. Unless you think exactly every other Leftist. Then you will be accepted.

Anyway, I see the failure of the Progressives as a sign of hope for our future. It will be difficult, certainly. The Left will fight Trump every step of the way like they fought Bush II every step of the way. If the average American doesn't become distracted, again, I think we can prevail.

Beautifully written Maureen Scott. We were lulled into a deep slumber and awakened by a nightmare. We have survived a reality that most, still to this day, don't understand or acknowledge. We were narrowly missed by the speeding bullet of progressive head shot to this nation. Liberty does not defend itself. It is ours to cherish, and keep, if we can hold onto it. Defend or die!

Very well stated, Mr. Long. The Progressives suffer from a severe case of willful ignorance, though by definition, willful stupidity is probably more accurate.
