Lincoln would be ashamed

By
From page A6 | November 23, 2012 |

A recent political cartoon appearing in The Enterprise shows a black person and a white person voting for Abraham Lincoln. The insinuation is voting to re-elect Barack Obama is reminiscent of votes for Abraham Lincoln.

If that is the implication, then Enterprise cartoonists are off the mark by galaxies. Abraham Lincoln was best known for not giving up on the field of battle when the going got tough against a deadly adversary. In contrast, Obama waved the white flag of surrender in both Iraq and Afghanistan, handing major psychological and military victories to our opponents.

I find it difficult to believe if Lincoln were here today, he would allow major swaths of resources to fall into the hands of America’s sworn enemies. Simply put, this was a strategically stupid move. We had promised the Iraqis military aid, then, thanks to Obama, just undid that promise. Who is going to trust us now?

Meanwhile, Obama drags us into some unknown conflict in Libya with no strategic assets for unknown reasons, then abandons that country to extremist rebel elements he himself put in power — getting our ambassador killed in the process, further destroying America’s credibility almost overnight.

Obama just created three power vacuums in only the first term of his presidency, while giving himself a pat on the back for doing so. Not to mention getting criticized by Democrat Sen. Dianne Feinstein (who sits on the intelligence committee) for classified intelligence leaks. Lincoln must be turning over in his grave right now.
