Just recently President Obama was caught holding a radical anti-American book.  Apparently, the President was reading this book on one of his overseas trips. Why would our President be reading something that does not inspire American greatness, but instead speaks about the decline of our once great nation?

In this book “The Post-American World”, written by Fareed Zakaria America is in a state of decline. It states that some kind of world order is starting to rise up led by countries like Russia, China, and India, and that it is starting to surpass America as the leading nation economically and militarily. Basically, this book suggests that America must not pursue superpower superiority, but rather learn to get along with the rest of the world.

One would have to wonder why our President would want to read such liberal crap. Does he believe what Fareed Zakaria states not only in his book, but also in the interview he has given in recent times to the likes of the BBC? I for one hope not. I was, along with many other Americans, raised to believe that America is the greatest country that has ever been in existence since the beginning of civilization. We achieved that status not by conquering and taking over lands, nor by our diversity, but by simply being free. It is our freedom that makes us great. It is our freedom that makes people all around the world want to live here. It is our can do spirit that inspires when the going gets tough we the people get tougher.

I am afraid that our President does not share that same view point. Instead of speaking about our great country for what it is, we catch him going overseas apologizing for what our country has done wrong in the past. Sure I will admit that we have made some mistakes in the past, but that does not out weigh those things that we have done that were good. We fought two wars in Europe and one in the Pacific just in the last century alone.  Not for conquering, but instead we fought it for liberation of all people. We as a nation sacrificed many of our young men and women for the greater good of freedom. We as a nation freed many around the world. We even in the last eight years freed those in the Middle East from the likes of dictators like Saddam Hussein, and also from the Taliban in Afghanistan.

Not only has America defended the world from tyranny with our great military, but our nation has too often been very generous to other countries in need. Remember the tsunami that hit on December 26, 2004 in the Indian Ocean? Many nations like Indonesia, Sri Lanka, and Thailand were the hardest hit. Hundreds of thousands of people not only lost their homes, but also lost their lives. It was the U.S. that sent our naval fleet over there first to provide medical, food, shelter, and personnel to help those countries in their time of need. We did this without even being asked. That, my friends, is what America does. I don’t see that same honorable attitude from our current President. In fact, judging from his reading material it is quite the opposite, he does not represent the American spirit which many patriots have now come to miss.

News travels quickly whether good or bad. And that goes for even the news surrounding the 2016 Olympics which President Obama and the first lady spent a large amount of time and tax dollars lobbying for to be held in their adoptive home town of Chicago Illinois. Ignoring important national priorities such as Iran’s deception about their hidden nuclear facility, the unemployment rate in the US still rising, and the failing war in Afghanistan; President Obama thought it was imperative that he take nearly a week to fly to Denmark and plead his case as to why the Olympics should be in Chicago in 2016. The first lady Michelle Obama, felt it was so important that she even said it was a “sacrifice” for her, President Obama, and (can’t leave out our elite friends) Oprah.

Obama’s decision to spend so much time on the 2016 Olympics rather than other world issues is even frowned upon by world leaders such as those in France, Britain, and China. Obama’s disregard for the true national priorities were a testimony to them of the lack in leadership that the new President possesses. It goes to show, Obama can grovel and try to impress the world as much as he wants, but he will ultimately lose respect for not leading. Losing Chicago serves them right for allowing it to take precedence over the other matters of national importance.

After all, it is not advertising, bowing down, or a utopian ideology that has made America great. It is our freedom and our strength. It is the resolve in the past to not go down without a fight, and to take on anyone that threatens the freedom and liberty of our nation. It is the determination of our past leaders to see to the issues that effect us most as a nation and handle them in the strongest, and fastest way in the best interest of the people.

As the President of the United States of American, President Barack Obama had no business blind siding the important issues at home and abroad, wasting precious time and money, for a silly aspiration of the Olympics in his home town.

On a lighter note, check out this video footage which I find quite comical of the reaction to the loss of the 2016 Olympics in Chicago:

There will be more video to come, there is a certain one I am looking for right now.

There is a lot going on in the world today, and that is especially true for the United States of America. On top of an unsteady economy, there are nuclear threats to our allies from Iran, North Korea testing war heads, the world wanting to dump the American dollar, the losing war in Afghanistan, and countless other foreign and domestic issues that require the attention of the US Commander in Chief. But where is our President? Aside from a meeting here and there for what President Obama calls “foreign policy”, he can be found working out, playing 18 holes of golf, enjoying tax funded concerts, hosting tax funded dinners, and as of recently, pulling for the 2016 Olympics to be held in Chicago. I sure am glad he has his priorities straight.

President Obama felt it was necessary to fly to Denmark to lobby for the Olympics in 2016 to be held in the US city of Chicago, elevating this “issue” to a matter of national importance. It is the first time EVER in history that an American President has appeared before the Olympic Committee to bring the games to the country.

I suppose our other international matters are not as pressing. After all, nuclear threats, failing economy, debates in the White House over numerous bills, are not what America needs to focus on at this time. Right? And when you can spend your time and tax payers’ dollars on fun, who wouldn’t take advantage of the down time? You can simply ignore the warnings of a losing war, let other foreign leaders handle the terrorists, and tell the American people things are going great. Oh, and to make yourself look better be sure to get on TV a lot. You know, make advertisements for late night television, hang out with Jay Leno, and appear on every news station to voice your agenda (except for the conservative ones, you wouldn’t want any confrontation).

I think that President Obama is treating his presidency more like a multi-billion dollar company that needs only selective attention rather than a country with a variety of matters. He pays little attention to the issues that do need his immediate attention and blows off the ideas and recommendations of anyone that has conflicting ideas for Obama’s agenda. He has not met with House Republicans since April to review the over 800 amendments they have proposed. He has only spoken with General McChrystal, whom he put in charge of the war in Afghanistan, one time since appointing him even after the warning of losing the war and the request for more troops. Obama treated the G20 Summit like a tree huger convention with a touch of one world planning, and spends a lot of his time relaxing, touring over seas, sight seeing, and lobbying for the Olympics. The only thing I have seen a lot of effort on from the President is his health care reform agenda in which there has been much time spent covering up lies, keeping the people who are for it convinced, and making sure that no one knows that the “other side” has offered many alternatives. I am all for “family night” and a little weekend down time, but Obama seems to do it quite often and not just on the weekends. The election is over Mr. President, it is time to take charge and protect and serve your country as you have promised.
