Conduct Unbecoming…

US President Barack Obama delivers remarks on the nuclear deal reached with Iran at American University in Washington, DC, August 5, 2015.  In 1963 US President John F. Kennedy traveled the short distance from the White House to American University to muster support for diplomatic engagement with nuclear foe the Soviet Union. On Wednesday, at the same spot, President Obama will echo Kennedy's entreaty, arguing for a nuclear deal with Iran -- a country described by his predecessor as part of an "axis of evil."

I tweeted that if the president’s comparison of Republicans to Iranian hardliners during a speech at American University yesterday was valid, then it could be said he and the Left were likely in collusion with ISIS. I’ve since pulled that tweet as I simply don’t want to be viewed as validating Mr. Obama’s petulance with any of my own.

Nevertheless, it got me thinking about how 44 has comported himself in antagonistic and “un-presidential” fashion pretty much from day-one, choosing political combat and the executive power play, over substantive debate and his Constitutional oath every time. Now I don’t say this lightly, as being president obviously makes one an object of criticism on a grand scale. And some do have thicker skins than others. However I also thought it ironic that many in the media were making comparisons to JFK, when he’d spoken about peace in the age of “cold war” in that very same venue. Well “let me be clear”, if Jack Kennedy was anything in politics it was an articulate and courteous statesman. And regardless of any of his personal trials, 35 would never have sunken to that level of partisan and unprofessional sniping.

No my little “Obamabots”, there is simply no comparison between President Kennedy and President Obama. Kennedy was a keen politician with a vision, who loved, fought and nearly died for his country. Obama is a self-absorbed ideologue, bent on exacting an ignorant revenge against a nation and culture he’s been taught to resent almost his entire life. Regrettably, his legacy will likely reflect that unfortunate political posture…

    Obama will be remembered for a number of things. Starting with the Bill of Rights, he has consistently disregarded them by his actions, his executive orders, his very glib speeches and also by his appointees. Rules and regulations drafted by his administration seem to have very specific goals in undermining common sense and years of positive growth in our country. Just thinking about his term as president has a tendency to make me very upset after thinking the damage he has done to out country internally as well as the diplomatic damages he is responsible for throughout the rest of the world.It’s been said many times: Our allies don’t trust us and our enemies don’t fear us. Just look around and listen, then draw your own conclusions,

Remember, "truth and reason" first...
