Enough of Obama


COVINGTON, Ind. — Editor:

Once I wrote that if one nation had the largest, most well-equipped and best trained military, few would likely challenge it — out of fear of reprisal more than any other reason. It is always better to negotiate from a position of strength than one of weakness.

What has President Obama done? Reduced our nuclear missiles while negotiating with the Russians. Heard on a open microphone telling the Russian president that after being re-elected he would be able to do more. Cut our military and has plans to reduce it further. This while Russia and China rush to build their military.

Russia has a long history of reneging on treaties. Afghans kill our soldiers for handling of the Qur’an and Obama apologizes. Our ambassador and three other Americans are killed. Muslims in Egypt start killing Christians two days after our embassy was attacked. Obama apologizes for the video and offers the Egyptians $450 million more in aid.
