Just some random thoughts about stuff you gotta shake your head at.
Clinging to power, Gaddafi is murder citzens in the street. His henchmen are driving around in ambulances, firing weapons at protestors. This is the same Gaddafi and the same Libia that was awarded a seat on the UN Security Council, the premiere world body dedicated to preserving peace.
According to Bill Mahr and others of his ilk, it’s always the right, the “Teabaggers” who are the ones with the violent, hateful rhetoric, nasty posters and racist hate speech, THEREFORE, all of those protestors in Wisconsin must be Tea Party members….Makes sense, right?
Here is the President’s Oath of Office…
“I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”
Newt Gingrich is on record as saying the President’s recent decision to drop any defense of the DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act) is a dereliction of duty he swore to above. Some other conservative pundits are saying that he is, in fact, living up to his oath by dropping his defense of a law. No matter which way you think, the truth is Obama once again demonstrates his administrations spinelessness. On Gitmo, Egypt, DOMA, the budget crisis and countless other issues, Obama parses, then punts rather than stand on principle.
I don’t know if we deserve better leadership, but we sure need it.
