Beclowning is unbecoming for an American President. But for Barack Obama the clown suit fits fine. Our enemies are laughing; we are not.
A clear majority of the American people say that the Obama administration is not competent to manage the affairs of the U.S. government, according to a Quinnipiac poll released Wednesday.
When Obama took office, he had a dazzling 67 percent approval to only 13 percent disapproval. Only one in five disapproved of the president and most of that can be chalked up to natural ideological differences and the fact that he belongs to a different political party. Now, after he won his second election, he has a dismal 40% approval and 52% disapproval. Results matter.
This cannot be emphasized strongly enough: the American people are not “racists.” They are good and decent people who have lost their patience with the Obama administration’s blame games, lack of accountability, You can only smear your opponents with baseless charges for so long before people wise up and realize they’re being played.
Brooklyn GOP Radio welcomed a friend of the show who will be discussing the latest on the crises in the Middle East - Van Hipp, Former Deputy Asst. Secretary of the Army under President George H.W. Bush.
In 1990, Van Hipp was sworn in as Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Army (Reserve Forces and Mobilization). In this capacity, he served as the Army Secretariat’s “point man” for the successful mobilization, and then demobilization, of the Army’s reserve forces for Operation Desert Shield/Storm. Van is currently the Chairman of American Defense International, Inc. (ADI), a Washington, DC based consulting firm specializing in government affairs, business development and public relations who is an expert commentator on the War on Terror and has been a guest on virtually every major cable news network’s major news programming.
