As we get close to the time to vote in November, let us look at the record of the president to lead. Is he proactive? Does he act in a timely manner? Are his actions the best for the United States? Are they quick and make us look strong in the eyes of the world? Is the view of the world favorable to the U.S.? Do we garner respect?
Yesterday was 9/11. How did the Middle East react? Two countries we have assisted had mobs attack our embassy’s, sovereign U.S. soil. How did we react? By apologies and words saying we condemn them. Look at our stand with Iran and their nuclear program. We use words and meaningless sanctions that are broken every day. One of our supposedly closest allies is coming to the U.S., the president of Israel. He requested a meeting with our president, and was turned down, because of campaigning conflicts.
We need leadership in Washington. This president does not lead, he waits to see how the tide flows, he apologizes to our enemies, he bows to Saudi kings, he rebuffs our allies and kisses up to our enemies. I don’t know if Governor Romney is better, but he has always leads from the front. He gets the jobs done. As we near the election, let’s ask the big questions, don’t be fooled by charisma and charm. Find the person who will act for the United States, make us look strong, someone who will lead from the front.
