When Obama is at his fund raisers, which is often, he thinks he is doing community organizing and when community organizing rhetoric is the key ingredient with no concern for truth. This is why Obama has become fund raiser chief.
The American public is now aware how tenuous our security is and how much more dangerous the world is today than it was even five years ago. Yet this is what the community organizer says to his pigeons last week-end. Obama said in a message when he spoke to donors at a fundraiser in New York’s Westchester County. “Yes, the Middle East is challenging, but the truth is it’s been challenging for quite a while,” he said. “I promise you things are much less dangerous now than they were 20 years ago, 25 years ago or 30 years ago. This is not something that is comparable to the challenges we faced during the Cold War.”
If we go back in our memories to the time of the late 1980’s Saddam was in power in Iraq, Iran was not a nuclear power, Mubarak was in power in Egypt, and Assad was in power in Syria. Gorbachev was General Secretary in a declining Soviet Union and most importantly Ronald Reagan was President of the United States. I think Obama was correct that things were messy in the Middle East but he is dead wrong when he promises things are much less dangerous now.
The Soviet Union was a declining threat and today Russia is a rising threat. Iran was not a nuclear threat. Egypt was much more stabilizing than disruptive. There was not a radical jihadist power with the weapons, organization, and funding to attack us on our homeland. More importantly we had a man who understood the real world in the White House. We now have a person, who places his own political fortune above all else including the security of the United States. Obama again told a lie. We are in a far more dangerous position if for no other reason than Reagan was in the White House then and Obama is in the White House today.
