611.) I know I don’t have to post this, I mean it is not really news, but there is more evidence that President Obama does not like Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. During the G20 summit President Obama talking to French President Nicolas Sarkozy, Sarkozy complained to President Obama that,”I cannot stand him [Netanyahu]. He is a liar”. Now at this point President Obama had two options, the first would be to use his “grand speaking skills” and calm Mr. Sarkozy down, defuse the situation if you will. The second, would be to join in on the complaining about Netanyahu. See if you can figure out which one he chose? President Obama said, “You’re fed up with him, but I have to deal with him every day!” Now if Israel was not one of our major allies, I probably would write this off. If this was the first offense, possibly I would right this off. But this is just another in a long line of insults to the leader of one of our major allies, one of the few countries in the Middle East that doesn’t dream of the down fall of the United States. I do not understand why it is the President does not like the Prime Minister, but this is as imature of a response as I could have imagened to this situation.
612.) President Obama has again shown his poorly hidden contempt for this nation. At the economic summit in Hawaii President Obama had this to say about the United States of America, “But we’ve been a little bit lazy, I think, over the last couple of decades. We’ve kind of taken for granted — well, people will want to come here and we aren’t out there hungry, selling America and trying to attract new business into America” This comes as no suprise, we all know that he would never accept that it is his policies that have failed, that it was the ideals of the progressives that have failed the nation. Has America been lazy when it comes to bringing jobs to our shores, I don’t think so. The problem is, is that we haven’t been lazy when it comes to allowing progressives to implement their ideals. We have allowed them to create a Tax code, and labyrinth of regulations that consumes jobs at an unimaginable rate. We have been lazy in our job of keeping government in check, inside of the cage we built for it. Now of course there will be progressives who say do you want people to die in the streets, who is going to take care of the poor, who is going to take care of the elderly, who is going to take care of the sick. The answer is Us, the people of the United States. We should be taking care of our neighbors, our family, our friends, and we should not have to have the government do it for us. Can you really say you care for the poor, if you expect the government to take care of them, if you expect the rich to pay for the programs to take care of them? No, you can’t, you have to be willing to help them yourself. So in a sense yes Mr. President you are right we have been lazy, we have allowed the progressives to warp our minds and neglected our responsibilities. But it is not that we have been lazy trying to get jobs to come here, the lack of jobs rests souly on the shoulders of big government. No mater what you say, how you look at it, people will not open shopes if it is too expensive, and that is exactly what big government does. Progressivism is akin to laziness.
613.) As always on the 13th post, time for a little humor. This relates back to Halloween. Mrs. Obama insists on giving out healthy treats, such as apples and veggitables. If she doesn’t loosen up, and give out some candy bars, the White House is going to get egged.
