Who is really un-presidential?
FROM: ARLEY MEADOWS PORT DEPOSIT
The news media and the Democrats (I know, that is redundant) are beside themselves with the “unpresidential” comments and actions of the Republicans vying for the presidential nomination. Must they be reminded of the actions of the current president and of the Democratic frontrunner?
One of President Obama’s first actions in office was to go on an apology tour in the Middle East, criticizing the greatness of America, bowing to Arab kings in the process. After ISIS beheaded an American reporter Obama went golfing. After Americans were killed in Benghazi, he went to California on a fundraising trip. He issues “executive actions” like party invitations, ignoring the Constitution in the process. He fails to enforce our immigration laws and works to circumvent the First Amendment guarantee of freedom of religion. I could go on but hopefully you get the idea. Obama has been the most un-presidential president of my lifetime.
Meanwhile the frontrunner for the Democratic nomination is under investigation by the FBI for numerous felonies and a total disregard for national security. She sucks up millions in donations from the big banks while criticizing them and “big money in politics.” I expect her campaign slogan in the general election to be the Nixonian phrase, “I am not a crook.”
Yes, the silly shenanigans of the Republicans are embarrassing. But the actions of Obama and Clinton verge on the criminal. Which is more un-presidential?
