Amateur hour

Last April, President Obama went to Prague, in the Czech Republic, and promised the people of that republic that the United States would help protect the Czechs - and the Poles - from possible nuclear attacks by Iran. Here's what he said:

So let me be clear: Iran's nuclear and ballistic missile activity poses a real threat, not just to the United States, but to Iran's neighbors and our allies. The Czech Republic and Poland have been courageous in agreeing to host a defense against these missiles. As long as the threat from Iran persists, we will go forward with a missile defense system that is cost-effective and proven."

Today, five months later, he notified the Czechs and Poles that he was pulling out of any agreement to provide a missile defense. To make it worse, today we learned, via the International Atomic Energy Agency, that:

"Tehran has the ability to make a nuclear bomb and is on the way to developing a missile system able to carry an atomic warhead, according to a secret report seen by The Associated Press."

Now every potential ally of the United States has learned that the President's word is no good, and every potential enemy of the United States has learned that the United States will cut and run if pressured.

Putting this group of amateurs in the White House is making the world much more dangerous.


  1. Amateurs is the perfect discription for that bunch in the White House. But then, what would you expect from a community organizer?

  2. The American people better wake up!! We can at least stop SOME of the hemhorraging by cleaning house and senate in 2010 - - - but we are in more danger by the day..... What a group of nimnulls, ruled by the Nimnull-in-Chief!(and make no mistake Obama is NOT interested in leading - he is interested in ruling!)
