Barack Hussein Obama had never so much as managed a fast food restaurant, let alone presided over the most powerful nation on earth, before assuming the highest office in America. Yet, low information voters propelled this inexperienced smooth (teleprompted) talking man into office, not once, but twice. Obama’s supporters refused to debate substance when people like Sarah Palin, and later Mitt Romney, warned that Obama’s total lack of experience, and weak approach to foreign affairs, would only embolden Liberty’s adversaries around the globe. Both Palin and Romney specifically cited the danger Vladimir Putin’s Russia posed to its neighbors.
Lamestream Media talking heads, hell bent to advance their own political agenda, ridiculed Palin and Romney, deflecting criticism of Obama’s total lack of experience, and rejecting claims that his weak approach to foreign affairs might invite tyrannical aggression in other parts of the world. Millions of low information voters joined this idiotic charade. More than any other presidential election campaign, Obama’s campaign for the presidency – aided and abetted by the Lamestream Media who told the American People what their itching ears wanted to hear – turned the presidential election process into a three ring circus. And Ukrainians are paying the price for it right now while low information voters go about their own merry way, American idoling themselves to death.
Palin and Romney were right. Obama, and the LSM, was wrong. Ukraine’s freedom is being seized by an emboldened Putin, just as Palin and Romney predicted.
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to understand that the American presidency affects a great deal of what goes on in the world, for better or for worse. Dictators around the world cringed when We, the American People, chose Ronald Reagan as our president. They knew that Reagan was the kind of leader who would not permit tyrannical aggression to go unnoticed. Conversely, tyrants around the world flexed their might when Obama was elected.
People around the world could tell you how Reagan would deal with just about any given international situation because Reagan clearly articulated his position.
Who in America – at this late date (i.e. five years into his presidency) – can articulate Obama’s foreign policy?
Because they chose poorly, the low information American voter has heaped misery on millions of people around the world, including Egyptians, Iranians, Syrians and now Ukrainians.
I wish low information voters would just come clean and admit that the snake oil salesman they propelled into office is in way over his head, and then learn from the mistake. They could do the world a favor by either 1) sitting out the next election. (Because votes are like guns, and you have no business wielding one if you don’t know how to handle it responsibly.) OR 2) research and vet any candidate before voting. Quit taking the “Saturday Night Live and MSNBC Will Help Me Decide How to Vote” approach, and actually take the time to do your own research, analyze, and critique the voting records and policies of any candidate before casting a vote for anyone.
Is that really too much to ask? Voting is too crucial a duty to do otherwise.
