This President Has No Honor

We saw things coming down this road over the first several months of his presidency, but in the past few days, the obvious lack of anything resembling honor in this man has become plain as day.

While most of the country is mourning and in shock at the atrocities of Fort Hood, this president is more concerned about making shouts out to his supporters. While former president, George Bush is quietly and unobtrusively visiting the families of those who lost oves ones in Fort Hood, this president is busy setting up a photo op at Dover Air Base to give us the impression that he give a rip about the dying soldiers in Afghanistan.

While any other president would put the business of legislation on hold for a few days to LEAD the nation in a time of mourning over the deaths of 13 in Fort Hood, this president is busy strong arming fence sitting legislators over his health care reform bill.

While throngs of people are being touched by the symbolism of the launch of the USS New York with its 15 tons of Trade Center steel in its hull, this president is visiting Capital Hill to rally the troops so he can have utter control over our country's health care system.

While troops are dying nearly daily in Afghanistan this president makes sure he doesn't miss his weekly game of golf.

While this Muslim extremist is lying in a coma after killing 13 in the name of Allah this president is busy making sure he's not called a terrorist or misunderstood for this act of "human disaster".

While growing numbers of people on both sides of the political spectrum are calling for this president to unite the country, he is more concerned about spending millions on lawyers whose only job is to make sure NO ONE gets access to his personal records (birth, school, passports, etc.)...leading a growing number of people to ask the only obvious question, "Why don't you just give them the records and END the speculation and divisiveness?"

This man has no honor. He, by his own press secretary's words, is not interested in listening to complaints and angry rhetoric. He is just focused on his agenda. That's right, to hell with the country...to hell with our constitution...to hell with us all...so long as he achieves his agenda.

To hell with with you, Mr. President. We're taking our country back and I DARE you to try and stop us.

John, your are dead on accurate in your assessment of this man. On any given day, I just shake my head in what is no longer dis-belief, but in pure disgust at this man. I feel like Dorothy in OZ.....I don't think we are in American anymore!
