But I’ll bet the Appeaser-in-Chief keeps this “you-can-keep-your-policy” promise unlike the one made to Americans under the domestic equivalent of the bomb, known as Obamacare.
President Barack Obama is a serial liar but, like a stopped clock, occasionally also tells the truth. For instance, he promised skyrocketing energy prices. They set a record high in October. He promised to bankrupt the coal industry with new carbon emissions-standards. The war on coal is clearly on the offensive and in the direction of bankruptcy courts in West Virginia, Kentucky and Pennsylvania.
In Iraq and Afghanistan, he promised surrender. American troops have abandoned the former terrorist playground of Saddam Hussein with nary a footprint left behind; while President B. Hussein Obama has set a 2014 date-certain deadline for withdrawal in the former safe haven of al Qaeda and their Taliban hosts in Afghanistan.
Which brings us to the number one state-sponsor of terror on Earth since 1979, Continue reading

Let the Big Dog eat!
The motto of Wofford Terriers’ (pictured) sports teams is “Let the Big Dog eat!”, and former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich looked like the Big Dog eating away at GOP presidential nomination opponents’ leads last Saturday night.
The Speaker’s mastery of foreign policy was equaled only by Former Massachusett’s Governor Mitt Romney, both of whom made clear that they would be willing to take unilateral military action to prevent the Islamist mullahs ruling the terrorist state of Iran from developing nuclear weapons.
Unfortunately for those, like me, that consider it imperative that any President of the United States maintain a credible deterrent and that we have a nominee with a bold jobs plan (like 9-9-9) fit for the depths of the present economic crisis, Herman Cain turns out to be with Ron Paul in publicly and dovishly taking the military option off the table over the issue that could drastically change life on Planet Earth one minute after Iran demonstrates its enty into the world’s Nuclear Club.
Appeasement of Iran, including abandonment of Iraq, leaves U.S. less safe under Obama despite killings of Osama bin Laden, al-Awlaki and Gadaffy.
We can’t kill all the bad guys, deterrence is paramount
America is obviously safer when terrorists are killed and President Barack Obama deserves credit for the high profile killings of terrorist leaders. Moreover, his statements in the aftermath of Navy Seals’ killing of bin Laden make clear that the answer to former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld’s most famous “snowflake” is that no, we did not create more terrorists than we killed under President George W. Bush. President Obama also deserves credit for breaking many campaign promises to undo many of the Bush Administration’s War on Terror polices that kept us safe after September 11, 2001.
But that we are safer the day after terrorists are killed than the day before is but a small part of the determination of relative safety under Obama since his inauguration. The relevant questions in that determination must address how safe we were under his predecessor and why; and an evaluation of all of President Obama’s policies and actions have altered the position of the United States and how those changes affect likely actions of our friends and enemies abroad.
