What are the consequences of electing a weak president? On this solemn anniversary of the September 11 attacks, one need only take a look at the Middle East to find the answer.
Iran is threatening to wipe Israel off the face of the earth. An American was killed and one injured today in Libya. Our embassy in Cairo was stormed by a mob and the American flag torn down.
Yet, in the midst of this Muslim fanaticism, where is our president? Shouldn't he be out front and center, at least commenting on all these occurrences? He is, for all intents and purposes, AWOL. He has yet to say anything to the American people and quite frankly, we deserve better from our president.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel requested a meeting with the president in an upcoming visit to the United States. Astonishingly, the president declined, saying his schedule is full. Yet, Obama has time to appear on the David Letterman show.
President Obama needs to draw a line in the sand and make it clear that if Iran, Egypt or any other Muslim country crosses it, there will be dire consequences for them.
Is this likely to happen? Not with this spineless president.
