Booing God, Saying 'Sorry' and Other Democratic Actions This Week

How does Obamas's view the death and violence waged against our fellow citizens this week?

Last night, I was at the American Legion Post 251 in Duluth, presenting them with a painting entitled, “Their Sacrifice, Our Gratitude.”  I was in the presence of greatness.  I was in quiet fear that I should even be in the same room with these heroes during their private meeting. These men fought for our American ideas. These were the men I often raise funds for and speak in support of.  I felt unworthy to be at their inner meeting. They were leaders when their country asked for their lives and youth.  Now years later, they still gather together as a band of brothers to still support their country now in a different way.  

They welcomed us.  After giving me the specifics of the meeting that we were involved in, they made serious mention that when I got up to speak and passed by the American flag, on the way to the microphone, I was to place my hand over my heart, in respect of our American flag. I was unaware of this protocol.  I will never forget their deep resolve of them wanting me to realize that our flag was worthy of respect, even at a meeting in little Duluth, Georgia, on a Tuesday night at 7:30 pm.  Respect the American flag when I pass by it, respect this Lady of Liberty, for she stands as a testimony to the lives and cost of our freedom that these very men fought for.    

I saw Miss Liberty being town apart and battered on foreign soil this morning.  Where was the respect from our president when that very same symbol of America was attacked this week? Nowhere. Where was Team 6 of the Seals?  Let’s face it, Obama took credit for Seal Team 6’s killing of Bin Laden.  So, will he also take credit for the deaths of four Americans and the destruction of two of our embassies and the desecration of our American flag? 

When the Egypt embassy was attacked, what did our leader say to our country and to the world?  Then, when the unnecessary death of the top US diplomat in Libya died, where was our leader?  Where is the president? What does the free nation leader have to say about this murder?  In the vein of a true leader, what does he do?  He sends out Hillary to say “Sorry!”  Her own words speak loudly about the lack of leadership in Washington when she said, “I ask myself how could this happen?" That one sentence said it all, for Hillary knows to what ends her own husband went through to keep us safe during his term. Obama has no foreign policy to speak of.  Our allies are demanding meetings about world events and he is "Unable to work it into his schedule.” For those who yelled, “Bin Laden is dead and GM is alive,” as a reason for voting or Obama in November, now what do you tell yourselves to quiet your fears? 

Obama has simply refused to engage in anything other than an apology tour and again he retreats to an apology when crimes are committed against our fellow citizens.  Last time we had a leader of one of our embassy killed was when Carter was in office.  Cater was another liberal that believed that “playing nice” would be our world foreign policy.  Do we really want to go back to hostage days?     

Back to Hillary. Let’s send out Hillary to calm the reporters and speak for America. Send out Hillary. The media was searching for the American answer to the last 48 hours of murder and destruction. Who would step up and fill the void? We were waiting to hear strong words against those who would attack our own,but all he said was we feel your pain for religious freedom, nothing about our flag or our embassy.  Next morning we wake up to another embassy being attacked but, this time four fellow citizens are now dead.  It was only after Romney’s press conference did our country hear words from the four-year long leadership vacuum that is Obama, our current president.  Obama still is hooked on this as a “religious event” and not an American security issue. He still does not get it. Please go see 2016 before you cast your vote. It is a movie that would have predicted the actions of Obama today.

Finally, a man of leadership qualities and fortitude did speak up. He stood firm in his words about the violence against America. It was not Obama, it was presidential candidate, Romney.  It was only after Romney spoke that Obama finally faced our nation, better late than never will be the rally cry of the democrats.  He miss spoke with out all the facts, nice try.  We were waiting. We wanted to be reassured that he was doing something, anything to stop the violence.  Bush directed all planes to be grounded, taken right out of the sky, to the nearest airport, immediately.  Obama, he finally ordered the beefing up the security around the world. DUH!  It is 9/11 week, why wasn’t that directive sent out last week? In light of the changes in the world over the last year, WHY would you not send out directives earlier or at the very least send in the Marines!  Oh yeah, Obama sent them in today, a day late and four lives short!   

Let me state that when American citizens, working at an American embassy are murdered, when our Ambassador is murdered, when our flag is torn apart, and our enemy’s flag is flying over our governmental compounds, I want more than a second day apology from the “president!”  Why did he even bring Hillary out to stand beside him? Why indeed? She had already given her speech but it did not quiet the press and so he had to speak and speak he did. Listen to him mumble over his words about our country.  He is firm about the religious freedom and less resolved about our America.   

When will my fellow Americans open their eyes to the vast changes to the Democratic party.  When you look at some of actions from the Democratic convention delegates, as they booed God and couple that with the the 911 embassy attacks, one can only wonder what has become of the Democratic party.  The horse is out of the barn and now he "tries" to act like a president.  Leadership is born within times of trial. Obama did not use this trial well.  A community organizer does not make a president. 

His entire presidency has been about apologizing and saying, “Well it could have been worse!”  Really?  Worse?  So we wake up today and guess what - it is worse!  He dismisses Israel president’s request for a meeting, on the major issue of Iran’s nuclear program.  Treating our allies in a demeaning manner will only bring anger and fear to them.  They do not have a straight idea of our place in the world anymore.  Obama’s followers are lacking in the ability to judge America’s place of leadership in the world. Come to think of it, really we are no longer the leaders of the world, we are a scared little boy standing in fear of the bullies that are attacking us.  When Bush and Reagan were in office, they understood the saying, “Walk softly and carry a big stick.”  Obama manta is “Say your sorry and cower!”  Poor example of a leader and yet many sing his praises. 

The Obama apology tour has led us to this place in our history.  What is the next step?  Everyone knows you don’t deal with terrorist, you strengthen you resolve and move forward.  If you are a Christian, then you should be questioning your leader and your party actions this past week.  Booing God?  Really?  Booing God, I never thought I would live long enough to see that in our country.  Now if you call yourself a Democrat, I just shake my head in disbelief that you would continue to follow this party. I often wonder, HOW the citizens of Germany allowed Hitler to gain power and commit such crimes, but then again I never thought I would see an American boo God; not once, not twice, but three times and on national TV! Check yourself- do you fly a flag outside of your home and if so is it Old Glory? God Bless America and God help us all.

We need a President with a backbone and not one sucking up to the Muslims.
Kristin S. September 17, 2012 at 01:49 PM
Cynthia, your post is vitriolic, misinformed, and 10-cent journalism. I wish I hadn't read it; that's 10 minutes I won't get back. Perhaps a bit of research on what it's like to BE president instead of second-guessing the actions of not just the president himself but a whole team would benefit you. By the way, I'm an independent voter and can see good (and bad) on both sides. I'll bet you were one of the ones second-guessing President Bush when he sent troops to Afghanistan too. All you're doing here is making our country look bad. And CJ is right - our founding fathers insisted on freedom of religion in our country and the separation of church and state. Believe in God all you want (I do too) but don't make it an issue if we don't bring it up in government.
Kristin S. September 17, 2012 at 01:53 PM
You're way out of line, here. I bit of restraint and less emotion would give you more credibility. "This country was developed because of religious freedom and as One Nation Under God" - that's circular. I'll bet you have family and good friends who support Obama too, and you're insulting their intelligence with your comments. I suggest this for your daily reading: http://rambleramble.com/2012/08/30/to-everyone-i-know-during-this-election/ And stop spreading hate.
C.J. September 17, 2012 at 02:33 PM
RE: "And CJ isn't even aware of what the booing was about? Read the newspaper before responding." Umm, Tammy. Show me a newspaper that said that Democratic delegates "booed God." In fact, you got that from the likes of Fox (Republican) News, talk-radio, and right-wing websites. No objective viewer could have seen the vote and come to that conclusion. In fact, I watched the vote LIVE. I saw the boos that you're referring to, and I agreed with them. For more information, see my post from yesterday at 5:29. Again, to conclude that people were booing God is twisted. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l2sWTwbzAcw
Kristin S. September 17, 2012 at 04:26 PM
Tammy, perhaps you'd do a better job as president? I'd like to suggest that you have no idea what that job entails. And it's not just one man making these decisions - there is a House and Senate giving input, and they often cancel each other out. Remember how much grief Bush got for bringing us into war with false intelligence? Stop spreading false information yourself.
Kristin S. September 17, 2012 at 04:26 PM
Great information, CJ. Keep standing as the voice of reason. This article has no merit or basis in fact.
Kristin S. September 17, 2012 at 07:23 PM
Cynthia, once again I have to point out that your vitriol is only making it very difficult to take you seriously. Your argument is all over the place. Calling the president a "looser" is not only poor grammar, it's the language of the uneducated. Categorizing "all demos" (which I must assume to be all Democrats) as one particular mind is silly and unconvincing. I'm not sure why I'm wasting my breath, anyway.
Cynthia Montgomery September 17, 2012 at 08:30 PM
Kristin, You are correct in saying my comments are all over the place as I am replying to many comments that have been written in response to my first blog & to the continued comments that come to me via the computer mail. Of course it will look like I am "all over the place" as I am responding to many replies. That said, I have been at this blogging for quite some time & have noticed that when a liberal comments, they do the same thing. First things is they don't address the issue. Second, they will name call & call attention to spelling/grammar errors ( I always make sure there is SOMETHING for them to gripe about in my writing), I suggest all do the same because if you don't the demo will have NOTHING to comment on. Third, demos will always ask for facts & then will not accept them using comments like,"well that is from a right winged TV or newspaper of commentator as if the facts can come from their side! LOL Fourth, when two persons see the same thing both parties will take from a speech or movie an entirely different view as they are seeing it from their own perspective. I write for many reasons but one is to see just how off base the left is when they are seeing the same things as the rest of the country. They will say, "NO THEY WEREN'T BOOING GOD! In a country that was founded on the freedom of religion NOT FROM religion to leave God out our your platform and Boo when the chair tries to put it back in is "Twisted"
Kristin S. September 17, 2012 at 08:37 PM
Cynthia, are all of your friends and family "Repubs" as you might call them? Because you continue to criticize roughly half of the country in your insistence that "your side" is the only correct one. I know one thing for sure: neither side is perfect. In fact, both sides are inherently flawed in that they force us to accept some of the bad with the good. I disagree with you on your view about who was booing what. There are Christian Democrats just as there are atheist Republicans. I'd appreciate you much more if you appeared to have a fair and balanced view. You do not. You continue to spout disdain for the "liberals" and "demos" (which is an abbreviation I'd never heard before today). It's great to have an opinion and I welcome it, but your negativity is not constructive.
Cynthia Montgomery September 17, 2012 at 09:01 PM
Kristin, I am friends with many Demos and have some in my family, sadly. If you do not like my opinions I suggest you turn off your computer. THis is still America and I am still entitled to my opinions as are you. If you do not like my opinion try as you will to show me where I am wrong. I do not have to have a BALANCED opinion, that is for weak minds that can not take a stand. I agree with you that BOTH parties are flawed by I find that the demos are harming our country more at this time and feel a need to comment in an effort to change minds, open minds and cause minds to look for the facts themselves by becoming more involved in the governmental process. I am not here to be positive about the demos. I do not feel positive about the demos. To write or act like I am a demo would be a lie, so Kristin sorry but I am not lowering myself to that level, I will leave that to obama. Glad I educated you to the words demos is is much nicer than DUMBOS would you not agree! Educate yourself and vote. Obama has had 4 years and if he had to turn in his numbers to a boss he would have been fired years ago. You just keeping in his FORWARD motto and watch as we go backward faster and faster and faster. I have friends that believe in him, I keep my thoughts to myself is I can but if they open the conservation then they are saying I am ready to defend my choice. Even the black ministers are telling their followers to NOT vote due to Obama's record and words. I'll take that!
Kristin S. September 17, 2012 at 09:05 PM
Wow. That is the ugliest attitude I've ever seen from someone who claims to be a writer. You didn't educate me on anything except that I'll choose to avoid your poisonous, noxious vitriol going forward. I have a feeling I'm better educated than you are, based on your comments. Open your mind. The strong are willing to hear both sides; and rudeness is a weak person's imitation of strength.
C.J. September 17, 2012 at 09:18 PM
RE: " ...country that was founded on the freedom of religion NOT FROM religion..." If any political party wants to prepare a platform without reference to religion or God, then it is free to do so (I doubt that the Libertarian Party, for example, mentions God in its platform). By the same token, if individuals choose atheism or agnosticism, they are also free to do so. So yes, in that sense, we do have freedom FROM religion. If Cynthia's assertion to the contrary is meant to imply that all Americans are constitutionally and legally obligated to a) choose a religion and b) declare that religion through their political affiliations, then, well, that's twisted too. As Thomas Jefferson wrote, "religion is a matter which lies solely between Man & his God, that he owes account to none other for his faith or his worship." I would suggest that Cynthia re-read all references to religion in our Constitution--pasted in my comment at Thursday at 5:47 PM. With regard to the reason that people were booing, I would also suggest that people watch the video and decide for themselves. Truth be told, people would have booed an errant decision on an amendment declaring Twix as the official candy of the Democratic Party if the Chair declared that it had passed despite the fact that it didn't get the requisite 2/3rds vote (surprisingly, not everybody likes Twix).
Cynthia Montgomery September 18, 2012 at 04:50 AM
Kristin, Once again you make my point quite nicely about liberals. Don't like another's opinion, no problem, simply name call!! EXAMPLE @ Kristin "l choose to avoid your poisonous, noxious vitriol going forward. I have a feeling I'm better educated than you are, based on your comments." Kristin, poor, poor, Kristin, you are falling into my very stated example of a liberal. I thought you would have something better, but alas you are a demo. While I have never had a liberal challenge my education there is always a first for everything. Since I refuse to go quietly into the night, you may spend your time guessing my educational background. May I give you a head start and say that my education came from the fine school that also carries the name of one of Georgia's finest journalist. While I enjoy all the rights of my degree, the best part of my education is to be able to engage in an exchange of ideas with others that bring ideas to the table, However, I do tire of those who mire themselves in name calling, and you my dear Kristin fall into that category. My mind is open to new thoughts, yet, I tire of liberal thoughts that are killing our economy and country. I write with the purpose of hearing from both sides of the topic. I comment to both demos & republicans so, in your own very description, I must be "Strong" & since you can only be rude with your name calling, well...that means...you must be...dare I print it.......... w e a k. Turn off your computer & relax :)
Cynthia Montgomery September 18, 2012 at 05:32 AM
CJ, Please check out another view of the Booing of God. See how it looks like to 50% of Americans. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6eYF7j10dzY&feature=related You have your side, please be open to what others saw that night. I was watching the demos convention all week, (keep your friends close and your enemy closer) and I saw the event unfold. I saw the audience of demos yelling and screaming NO NO NO! to leaving GOD in the demo platform. I wrote about this issue to open the minds of both demo & republicans. The path the demo party is going down is a scary path. To say it did not happen or that we took it the wrong way may plicate some but not this God fearing American. To challenge the capitol and delete God speaks volumes to the direction of the democratic party. It is not the democratic party of your parents. It has been high jacked by over 50% of demos that want to take it to a place it has never been before. Many blacks and Jews are leaving the party due to the party turning away from God in a very open way. Blacks have historically been strong Bible voters and they are leaving the party. Their pastors are telling them to stay away from the polls due to the change in the platform language. Open you eyes to the reality of your party. If you have not been at one of your parties conventions lately, it is time to go and learn where the party is heading. God Bless you & your party. Please be open to the site I have posted for you to view.
Tammy Osier September 18, 2012 at 10:23 AM
Bobby, precisely where the problem lies. We need a president who understands the nature of our enemy. Muslim extremists see bowing and acquiescing and apoligizing to their leaders as WEAKNESS and act accordingly. We actually enbolden them when we do that. They are insane either way and will attack over nothing, so we might as well stand up to them and show our strength. Reagan did. He made it clear inthe Iran hostage crisis that that kind of behavior would not be tolerated. What did they do? They let our people go. The last man like that was named Moses. LOL
Tammy Osier September 18, 2012 at 10:26 AM
Cynthia, for all those who don't unnderstand why deleting reference to God is important, basically, if you don't say "God given rights" then it implies that your rights are vto you by government. Which means, that government wants to own you. They can give or take whatever they want - in essense- you become the slave to the state. Now, democrats, I ask you, is that what you want?
Tammy Osier September 18, 2012 at 10:27 AM
I would also ask if they can now understand why we fight so much for this? Sounds like we are for America, not against it.
Kristin S. September 18, 2012 at 02:59 PM
Cynthia, you're right. Name-calling and questioning your education is beneath me. My apologies. I hope you will also refrain from name-calling going forward, such as suggesting that Democrats are "dumbos" and the president is a "looser" (aka "loser"). The office of the president deserves respect, just as our flag does. I have never, ever called a president a derogatory name - especially remembering there is a whole host of Cabinet members, Senate and Congress, and a national behind it.
C.J. September 18, 2012 at 03:00 PM
RE: " I was watching the demos convention all week, (keep your friends close and your enemy closer)..." To be sure, Cynthia, Democrats are your political opponents, but they're not your enemies. They're your fellow Americans.
Chris September 18, 2012 at 03:11 PM
" The office of the president deserves respect, just as our flag does." As Does The Resolute Desk! http://www.snopes.com/politics/graphics/desk1.jpg
Kristin S. September 18, 2012 at 03:19 PM
Interesting, Chris. So did Bush and Ford also disrespect the desk with their feet up too? Scroll to the bottom of the Snopes articles for photos. Please. http://www.snopes.com/politics/obama/photos/desk.asp
Chris September 18, 2012 at 03:24 PM
Interesting Kristin S.? You mentioned office and the flag. I mentioned the desk.

Chris September 18, 2012 at 03:39 PM
Of course it’s disrespectful regardless of who is president. You make it sound as if Obama is the first president to ever be disrespected. Screw him! Our own elected Senators and Congressmen spoke ill of Bush AND our Military calling them terrorists and murderers. Then Hilary Clinton disrespected General Petraeus to his face after congress called him in to testify regarding the Iraq war progress. She and others basically called A Decorated General a frickin liar. Disrespect is nothing new. Ruler Obama and you can suck it up! These people work for the US Citizen regardless of their title. Get over it!
Chris September 18, 2012 at 03:58 PM
You democrats call Bush a liar when congress signed off on the Iraq war. Wepons were in fact found. America knew Saddam Hussein had and used weapons of mass destruction. The weapons found were old and possibly unusable which would explain why they were left in place. Bush never lied. Lying is only an implied assumption as our military never found a cache of weapons that were suspected. The same applies for Obama when he speaks of America's overreach to our enemies. That is considered an apology by anyone with a functional brain. You people will split hairs all day to justify a fight. No Leader Of The Free World should bow to our enemy. You people have diarrhea of mouth when criticizing the Right as if the Right loves seeing our Men and Women die in war but you don't say JACK about Obama when he sends the same Men and Women into harm's way. Mr. Nobel Peace Prize deserves the same respect you people gave George W. Bush.
Chris September 18, 2012 at 04:59 PM
@Brian Crawford, How about informing the unwashed why you guys accuse G.W. Bush of lying while you defend Obama on the apology accusations. Please be very clear how it is that Bush lied. Facts!
Racer X September 18, 2012 at 05:09 PM
In those Snopes pictures did anyone else notice Obama's chair has chrome wheels?
Racer X September 18, 2012 at 05:17 PM
Brian- If the purpose of posting that video link was to illustrate how poorly and unprofessionally the far left handles debate then you have succeeded. She asked the man several questions then interrupted him in the middle of his answers. Very poor journalism in my opinion.
Cynthia Montgomery September 18, 2012 at 06:26 PM
Cj, I am at odds when a person/demo continues to support a mindset that has friends of mine loose their homes, jobs, ability to feed their children, maintain healthcare & in some cases their families fracture due to the stress. I have watched college graduations knowing that these graduates have very little chance to become independent adults. I see needy friends that can not get the care they need because too many, whom should NOT be on the government rolls, continue to cheat the system & now want this way of life to be their way of life. Many things are wrong with our country. I know it can be changed. I've seen a president make it happen before. I thank obama for his years in the White House yet, I know we can do better. Today if you have a job, you are rich in obama's mind. Those that think living off the labor of others is a lifestyle, are wrong. I have issues with obama growing the government with his healthcare program. We can't fund SS now so why add another entitlement program? It is time for all good men to come to the aid of their country & vote for a new direction. I thank him for his efforts but we can't make this same mistake again. Every party is flawed. Each man & woman is flawed. Everyone who post here is flawed yet, it is time to change directions for the good of our country. The world now sees us as weak. We are being attacked & murdered at will, due to our leader's weakness. You have to understand your enemy to overcome him & our enemy get's obama. Sad!
Tammy Osier September 18, 2012 at 11:12 PM
Chris, my son was there. They did find the underground missiles. They did find yellow cake - a lot of it. Sadaam had already killed thousands of Kurds, scudded missiles into Israeli territory, and slaughtered his own people. Nuclear weapons, like any other weapons, are only dangerous in the hands of outlaws of which Sadaam was. Iraq's government is no longer hostile to America. It is grateful to us for freeing them from Saddam, who would rather spend money on palaces and yellowcake than on feeding the Iraqi people. Ask my son he was there. Oh, and he also was a part of a mission uncovering propaganda. Guess which newspapers they found? Liberal ones -lolol (This is where George will come on here once again to tell me my son doesn't know what he's talking about- even though George has never been there).
