I want you to think about the Revolutionary War.
I want you to think about the Civil War.
I want you to think about World War II.
I want you to think about the Korean War.
I want you to think about the Vietnam War.
I want you to think about all the wars.
What if we had a Commander-in-Chief like this, who doesn't desire victory?
A President who is kneecapping our soldiers with confused dictates like granting Miranda rights to terrorists captured on the battlefield; who is kneecapping our soldiers while they try to defeat this enemy; who is kneecapping our soldiers who have a dangerous, complicated and difficult enough task as it is.
I want you to think about how this President has dumbed-down the War on Terror by calling it other things, giving it bureaucratic titles.
I want you to think about how this President has traveled to Europe, Latin America and the Middle East -- and condemned his own country, apologized for it, and laid blame for all sorts of calamities at its feet.
I want you to think about the massive spending spree this President has unleashed; the greatest amount of spending of any country, ever. A President who has incurred more debt in one year than all the prior 233 years combined.
And yet when it comes to defense -- including missile defense, he slashes it.
Yes, we have a force in the Oval Office. A force for danger.
The question is whether all the good works done by all the Presidents before him, all the Commanders-in-Chief, all the excellent Attorneys General, all the excellent CIA Directors, all the troops and intelligence and law enforcement personnel, all the people who have worked so long and so hard, over the many decades...
...the question is whether what they have built will last under this President. Consider the massive debt, the crushing despotism of Iran's insane leaders, or the rise of radical extremism through the world -- this president is AWOL, other than to lobby Congress for more debt, more taxes, more government regulation, more government oversight of the economy.
Despite an unblemished series of failures -- the Post Office, Social Security, the "War on Poverty", Fannie Mae, Medicare, Freddie Mac, the Federal Reserve, Medicaid... all bankrupt, all catastrophic failures -- the Democrats now want to nationalize one-sixth of the economy. To take over the entire health care system, when the country is headed for bankruptcy.
The liberals like to say they care about humanity. About the children. I have yet to see them prove it.
