Everybody remembers where they were and what they were doing. It’s one of a handful of significant events in one’s life that stand out.
November 22,1963…. I was in 8th grade science class when the principal made the announcement over the loudspeaker
July 20,1969… I was in summer class at Jr.college watching a small black and white TV the professor brought in to watch Neil Armstrong set foot on the moon.
Sept.11,2001… I was gathering dirt uniforms and listening to Don Wade on my portable radio when the newsman broke in to say a plane had hit one of the towers. At first, reports indicated it was accidental. The truth was brought home as we watched the second plane head into the second tower and burst into flame.
For a brief moment the nation came together as we suffered a horror heretofore unknown to us.I thank God we had a strong,moral leader to see us through this heart-wrenching trauma.
It took almost two weeks for the press to get back to their business of smearing the president in every possible way, starting with the video of him reading to a grade school class when an aide came in and whispered about what was happening. He was criticized for not jumping up and running out screaming, for flyimg on Air Force One to a safe location. Did he know about the attack beforehand? Was it an inside job? It must have pained them to hold their tongues for a few days while the nation mourned its lost.
Fast forward 7 years. An unknown mulatto who had no experience doing anything except getting high, doing some streetcorner hustling and having everything handed to him becomes the object of the media’s unbridled passion, who hoisted him on their shoulders and whisked him into the White House with the help of a Republican party who ran as poor a candidate as they could find, who expended more effort destroying his own VP nominee than fighting for the presidency.
Straightaway this America-hating Muslim announced to the world that the lives and treasure sacrificed to try to stabilize the Middle East meant nothing as he planned to turn tail and run as fast as he could.
Cue ISIS, commanded by Saddam’s former military leaders who spread blood and destruction, first to the Kurds and the Yazidis, then spread like a plague. They knew they had nothing to fear from their fellow Muslim who lied to the American people about how we were fighting the enemy.
I firmly believe he tipped off the Taliban to the transport helicopter that was carrying Seal Team Six after they killed bin Laden. You’ll never convince me otherwise.
Then came Sept.11, 2012. I can’t rightly recall where I was but I know where that sad excuse for a human was. He’d gotten word the attack in Benghazi was underway. He turned his back and walked away. He had a big fundraiser in Las Vegas the next day.
Now he’s telling us we have to take in at least 10,000 Syrian “refugees.”
