Obama’s first year. [TERRORISM]

I’m going to start this post with some words of then candidate Obama in the campaign trail:

September 8, 2008.

“Don’t mock the Constitution. Don’t make fun of it. Don’t suggest that it’s not American to abide by what the founding fathers set up. It’s worked pretty well for over 200 years.”

I can’t believe he even got an applause for that one. The man is worried about reading the terrorists their rights. He doesn’t care about the intelligence information we need to save lives, he cares about the terrorists’ rights. I wish he treated conservatives just as nice as he treats terrorists.

Barack Obama is a father. He has two lovely daughters, and I think that his main concern should be: “Are they safe?” Well, when we had a man in the White House with the guts to do what was right, they were safe. We all were safe. But I don’t think we are safe now: Obama is making us more vulnerable: he’s apologizing to our biggest enemies, he ended the Enhanced Interrogation Techniques that saved millions of lives, he is more worried about getting out of Afghanistan than winning the war (and keep in mind: if the Taliban wins, Al Qaeda would be back in power).

But that, America, is what he meant when he talked about Hope and Change.

January 22, 2009.

President Obama vowed to close Gitmo by January 2010.

“Guantanamo will be closed no later than a year from now.[…] We won’t torture but we can still obtain […] the intelligence that we need”

Mr. President, the Enhanced Interrogation Techniques were not torture. Those techniques were legal and they saved lives.

February 2009.

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano referes to terror attacks as “man caused disasters.” Change we can believe in.

She stated “we want to move away from the politics of fear.”

November 5, 2009.

Terrorist Attack on Fort Hood. [I mean, man-caused disaster in Fort Hood, sorry.] 13 were killed and 38 wounded.[Personally, I think 14 were killed, 1 of the victims was pregnant…] Nidal Malik Hasan was the responsible. He has ties to Inam al-Awlaki, a rock star among Islamic extremists.

November 6, 2009.

Obama headed to Camp David.

George and Laura Bush visited the wounded.

November 13, 2009.

Eric Holder announces some terrorists, including 9/11 mastermind, will be tried in New York City. The cost of the trials could exceed $600 million. Holder is going to be giving the terrorists exactly what they want. The terrorists should be tried in a military court.

December 25, 2009.

Attempted terror attack. Crazy Jihadist [Umar Farouk AbdulMutallab] with Al Qaeda ties, boards a plane with a bomb in his pants.

December 27, 2009.

Janet Napolitano: the system “worked.”

December 28, 2009.

3 days after the attempted attack, Obama finally speaks. Says crazy Jihadist is “an isolated extremist.” Remember how liberals criticized President Bush because he stayed a couple of minutes in a school classroom, because he didn’t want to scare the little kids? Where were the liberals now? [Vacationing in Hawaii with Obama, maybe?]

January 2, 2009.

Detroit suspect also tied to Inam al-Awlaki and Al-Qaeda. But as Obama said, he was “an isolated extremist.”

This is the third of a series of blog posts about Obama’s first year. Read the other two here and here. Tomorrow, the post will be about Afghanistan. You can sign up to receive the post, the link is on the sidebar. Thanks.

I love to hear from you, leave comments! 😉

ANSWER THE POLL:

NOTE: I’m sorry about the bad quality of the post, but I’m not feeling fine. Yesterday’s speech killed me. Too many lies said in 70 minutes, my head almost exploded…

Obama’s first year in office. [IT’S THE ECONOMY, STUPID!]

During the campaign, candidate Obama, was perceived by some voters as a moderate, who would control spending, cut taxes and take back the economy.

During the campaign, candidate Obama, was perceived by me as a socialist nut-job. And I was right!

January 8, 2009; Virginia.

“Only government can brake the cycle that is crippling our economy. […] That’s why we need to act boldly and act now –to reverse these cycles.”

January 16, 2009.

Obama, who needed someone to tell him the “campaign is over, sir,” went back to the stump in search of support for his multi-billion plan.

February 10, 2009.

RINO Charlie Christ introduced President Obama in a Town hall metting held in Fort Myers, FL. Obama stated:

“If we son’t act immediately, then million more jobs will disappear, the national unemployment rates will approach double digits, more people will lose their homes and health care, and our nation will sink into a crisis that at some point is going to be much tougher to reverse.”

February 17, 2009.

Obama signs into law the stimulus bill. The Stimulus Bill is 1073 pages. You can read it here.

Obama said: “The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act is the most sweepingeconomic recovery package in our history.”

June 5, 2009.

Unemployment: 9%.

November 6, 2009.

Unemployment: 10.2%. Highest level in 26 years.

Obama: “Although we lost fewer jobs than we did last month, our unemployment rate climbed to over 10 percent — a sobering number that underscores the economic challenges that lie ahead.”

December 8, 2009.

“We can safely say that we are no longer facing the potential collapse of our financial system and we’ve avoided the depression many feared.”

The American people don’t like the stimulus.

Remember what Obama and Company said when they were lobbying for the stimulus?

  • That if it was passed, unemployment would be under 9%. If it wasn’t passed, our economy would collapse. It was an emergency!
  • 3,650,000 would be created

But back then, people with common sense knew that it wouldn’t work: because government, Mr. President, doesn’t create jobs.

This is part two of a series of blog posts. You can read the first one here.

Obama’s first year in office [WORLD APOLOGY TOUR.]

Candidate Obama promised to change America’s image. [He wanted terrorists to like us. I want terrorists to fear us….]

April 2, 2009.

“I would like to think that with my election and the early decisions that we’ve made, that you’re starting to see some restoration of America’s standing in the world. And although, as you know, I always mistrust polls, international polls seem to indicate that you’re seeing people more hopeful about America’s leadership.”

[NOTE: He’s arrogant. Normal Americans aren’t arrogant. Period.]

April 3, 2009; Strasbourg, France

“In America, there’s a failure to appreciate Europe’s leading role in the world. Instead of celebrating your dynamic union and seeking to partner with you to meet common challenges, there’s been times when America has shown arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive.”

April 4, 2009; NATO News Conference

“I believe in American exceptionalism, just as I suspect that the Brits believe in British exceptionalism and the Greeks believe in Greek exceptionalism.”

April 4, 2009.

President Obama meets Saudi King Abdullah in London. He bows.

April 6, 2009.

Gibbs denies it was a bow. Says he only shook the King’s hand. [90000 jobs saved or created, and the bow controversy was Bush’s fault!]

April 17, 2009; Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago.

“All of us must now renew the common stake that we have in one another. I know that promises of partnership have gone unfulfilled in the past, and that trust has to be earned over time. While the United States has done much to promote peace and prosperity in the hemisphere, we have at times been disengaged, and at times we sought to dictate our terms. But I pledge to you that we seek an equal partnership. There is no senior partner and junior partner in our relations; there is simply engagement based on mutual respect and common interests and shared values. So I’m here to launch a new chapter of engagement that will be sustained throughout my administration.”

Obama met Chavez in the Summit of the Americas. They greeted warmly. [Obama probably apologized to the dictator in the name of America: “Hugo, I’m sorry. America is the land of the free… But, you know, I’m here to change it!]

Chavez also gave Obama a book tittled “The Open Veins of Latin America,” written by an Uruguayan, Eduardo Galeano. [That’s the day where I wanted to hide my birth certificate. (I was born in Uruguay)]

April 19, 2009; News Conference, Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago.

“I think it was a nice gesture to give me a book; I’m a reader. And you’re right, we had this debate throughout the campaign, and the whole notion was, is that somehow if we showed courtesy or opened up dialogue with governments that had previously been hostile to us, that that somehow would be a sign of weakness. The American people didn’t buy it. And there’s a good reason the American people didn’t buy it — because it doesn’t make sense.”

Well, what doesn’t make sense is what he said. Chávez is an anti-American nut-job. He’s a dictator. He called President Bush the devil, a drunk, and dumb. [And bird.] Do you think it makes sense that the American President sits down with him for tea?! And yes, it makes us weaker. I don’t want Osama bin Laden to like us. I want him to fear us. I want Chávez to fear us. I want Ahmadinejad to fear us. I want Kim Jom Il to fear us. I want Qaddaffi to fear us. [And to take a shower. Maybe buy some new clothes would be good too… Anyway.]

June 4, 2009; Cairo, Egypt.

“9/11 was an enormous trauma to our country. The fear and anger that it provoked was understandable, but in some cases, it led us to act contrary to our ideals. We are taking concrete actions to change course. I have unequivocally prohibited the use of torture by the United States, and I have ordered the prison at Guantanamo Bay closed by early next year.”

First, no attacks since 9/11 in American soil. [Bush’s fault!] Second, THE TECHNIQUES THAT WERE USED TO INTERROGATE TERRORISTS WERE NOT TORTURE. [Click here to read a description of each technique used, courtesy of the Justice Department, that released the info. By doing so they weakened us.] There were no broken bones, no bloodshed, and no one was killed. Those techniques led to key intelligence information that SAVED LIVES.

November 14, 2009; Tokyo, Japan.

Obama bows again. This time to the Emperor of Japan.

Robbert Gibbs, didn’t deny it this time.

November, 16, 2009.

Great day, I turned 15 [I was celebrating the fact that I could drive if I lived in Tennessee.] Obama bowed to Hu Jintao. It was like “Happy birthday, Flo!”

While I was eating cake I was saying to myself: “There he goes again.”

December 9, 2009; Oslo, Norway.

And all these apologies led to something: a Nobel Peace Prize. I was watching from DisneyWorld. That’s great, Jimmy Carter also has a Nobel Peace Prize, and Yasser Arafat.

It would be fabulous if we had a President who cares more about our national interests and security, and not what could make him win a Nobel Peace Prize.

All of Obama’s apologies only make us weaker.

Please, leave comments, I love to hear from you ☺
