Let’s assume that, instead of a Malaysian Airlines plane being shot down, that an American Airlines plane with 300 Americans on board was shot down in the Ukraine killing all on board.
What would President Obama do? Absolutely nothing – just like he is doing now! Putin knows that this administration will do nothing. American bodies would be rotting in the Ukraine while President Obama begs Putin and the Europeans for help.
President Kennedy in 1962 stood up to the Russians. If Obama had been President in 1962, Florida would now be part of Cuba.
If Obama had been President in the 1980’s, there would still be a Berlin wall and a divided Germany. President Reagan said in a speech in Berlin on June 12, 1987 addressing the Soviet Premier “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!” For Reagan’s speech, listen to it at http://www.historyplace.com/speeches/reagan-tear-down.htm
Obama would have quoted one of Robert Frost’s poems and said “Good fences make good neighbors.”
If Obama had been President at the time of 9/11, he would have lamented the fact that Muslim terrorists had to die to make their point that America was terrible.
The United States has had poor presidents before, but we have never had a president like Obama who apologizes for everything this country and its people have accomplished. He seems to despise everything this country stands for and that is a sad commentary on the state of this country – one without a real leader.
