As the Middle East Explodes, Someone Is Asleep at the Wheel

The world is in a state of crisis.

As Americans, we do not have to look very far. Our own border situation with the influx of nearly 300,000 people entering into our country since April of this year reveals a moral and human problem of epic proportions. Our “allies” south of the border are actively exploiting the lives of so many people coming  into the Southern part of our country.

While he was in Texas meeting with Gov. Perry, one would think that the President would have gone to some of these centers to see exactly what chaos is ensuing without any specific game plan for the near future. Symbolic gestures are psychologically and morally important for people working to protect our borders. It is even good for the President to show his solidarity with the children, assuming he wants to appear as someone who is “concerned” and “involved” in solving this crisis.

As if this crisis wasn’t enough, we have the conflict that is taking place in Israel. The Jihadist consortium of ISIS and HAMAS are trying to target the Israeli nuclear reactor in Dimona.

Consider the following scenario.  The Jihadist consortium succeeds in blowing up the reactor; nuclear radiation spreads throughout the Middle East. Ironically, the radiation not only affects the Jews living in Israel, but also the Muslims living in Israel and the Palestinians living in the West Bank and Gaza, not to mention every country within the entire Middle East, e.g., Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Iraq and so on. Let’s not forget the European countries of Greece, Turkey—in fact, the entire European continent.

Stupidity, like hatred, knows no bounds.

Where is our President while all of this is happening? You might be surprised to know that he is planning his next vacation in August at Martha’s Vineyard.

By now, any logical person ought to be scratching his/her head.  How can anyone go on yet another vacation while the world is going to hell in a hand basket?  Note this is not the first time the President has gone on vacation during an international crisis.So far this year, the Obamas have spent 44 million dollars on their vacations.

Just imagine how many soup kitchens and people 44 million dollars could feed. . .  I can almost hear the ghost of Mel Brooks say, “It’s good to be king, oops! I meant to say, ‘It’s good to be the President!’”

June 14th, 2014, the President goes golfing while the Russians invade the Ukraine and the Crimea; in the interim, Iraq is falling apart at the seams as ISIS begins its conquest of Syria and Iraq, with a goal of expanding the Caliphate.

What is wrong with this picture? When Hurricane Katrina brought great devastation to the Southern part of the country, the media blamed President Bush and his administration for not doing enough to help the victims of Katrina.

Are we witnessing President Obama’s “Katrina moment”?

If our country did not tolerate President Bush’s display of apathy, why should we tolerate it with President Obama?

Isn’t time for us as a nation to demand a more attentive reaction to the tragedies occurring in the world?

The last thing the civilized world needs is a President who is asleep at the Presidential wheel.

    People think Obama is too historic to fail. It’s a pity that the first black president had to be so mediocre.
