We all need recreation and relaxation…and yes each of us has many, many pressures to deal with every day. Including paying the rent, having food on the table, providing money for your kids clothes and education…and on and on. However, I submit that our Commander In Chief of the United States has far too much recreation and much too many campaigning trips all over the U.S….without enough attention to the key issues of the American people.
Is The Golf Game In Front Of Our Foreign Policy?
This country is facing many critical issues right now, and the least of which we need is to stop our business at home to take care of what should have been done a couple of years ago in Syria. The President’s choice to lead from behind…for God only knows what reason…has left us with a major crises for which this country has few good choices. We are between a rock and a hard place…if we ignore the situation that the President got us into with his “line in the sand” comment and with the then Secretary of State with no action to build a coalition with the friendly forces at least two years ago, the whole mess has gone “south” with virtually no good options at this time. In an effort to save Obama’s credibility.. (and a large number are seeing this as the Country’s credibility) and to keep the “evil forces” from thinking they can do anything, Obama has nowhere else to go except to the Congress, Senate and the American People. This is a horrible choice this President puts in the hands of our legislators and the American public. There is no absolutely no believable plan of how to use military forces at any level and foresee the outcome beforehand.
I personally believe that we are not the world’s policeman.
I thoroughly agreed with Rand Paul and Marco Rubio in the Senate Hearings today with John Kerry! To support my position here is what I consider to be an excellent post by Sarah Palin. Enjoy…

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) weighed in on the situation in Syria, attacking President Barack Obama and saying he should “let Allah sort it out.”
Palin said it’s “bull” to compare Obama to President George W. Bush.
“Our Nobel Peace prize winning President needs to seek Congressional approval before taking us to war. It’s nonsense to argue that, ‘Well, Bush did it.’ Bull,” Palin said in a Facebook post Friday night. “President Bush received support from both Congress and a coalition of our allies for ‘his wars,’ ironically the same wars Obama says he vehemently opposed because of lack of proof of America’s vital interests being at stake.”
Did you call Washington today? The lines were all busy. It was necessary to send emails to all involved. Your comments are welcomed.
