Having just published an article on Leadership took less than 48 hours to watch the fearless Commander-in Chief of the United States military use and hide behind political cowardice to prove to the world that he not a leader. Assad called it a victory for someone but for God’ sake who is our enemy in Syria? We have Republicans like John McCain and his usual RINO media hogs like Lindsey Graham, screaming we are letting Assad the Monster kill and maim Syrian citizens with poison gas while Assad’s enemy is the same Muslim group that killed our Ambassador and Navy Seals in Libya.
If the current leadership in Washington D.C. had been in power on December 7, 1941 the Japanese could have destroyed our entire navy while the President waited for Congress to finish their Christmas vacation.
Obama and many in Congress threatened Syria with a red line in the sand. We have warships positioned to attack somebody who they have determined to be the enemy of all civilized mankind. Then with real “Courage” the announced “KINGS X” and threw the Israeli people under the bus and then gave a signal for Iran and the other Muslim enemies it is open season again for the Jewish people. This unbelievable political cop out by Obama is the true picture of what he defines as “Courage”. Let me again share the Wikipedia definition of “Courage”.
“Courage is the ability and willingness to confront fear, pain, danger, uncertainty, or intimidation. Physical courage is courage in the face of physical pain, hardship, death, or threat of death, while moral courage is the ability to act rightly in the face of popular opposition, shame, scandal, or discouragement.”
“In some traditions, fortitude holds approximately the same meaning as courage. In the Western tradition, notable thoughts on courage have come from philosophers such as Aristotle, Aquinas and Kierkegaard; in the Eastern tradition, some thoughts on courage were offered by the Tao Te Ching. More recently, courage has been explored by the discipline of psychology.
John Wayne quoted; “Courage is being scared to death… and saddling up anyway.”
Another philosopher, unmentioned by Wikipedia was Socrates who said; “He is a man of courage who does not run away, but remains at his post and fights against the enemy.”
I doubt we have one politician with true Courage, outside of Sheriff Joe out in Arizona, in America today. Obama, Reid, Polosi, Boehner and McConnell have proven without a doubt they are career politicians and all forms of common sense is unlawful. The Supreme Court, including John Roberts, makes decisions regarding the law for political gain for others. They are aware they can’t be replaced but their political officials, friends and lobbyist need help.
It took real Courage for Polosi to tell Congress to pass Obamacare and you can read it later. Well it’s later and because we have no honest media to report dishonesty in Washington, she is frothing at the mouth to regain the Speaker-of-the House position of unlimited power to destroy the future for most Americans.
You Progressive-Liberals just keep electing these clowns and hope that Miracle-Genie appears with her brass lamp. She will then force Iran and the other Muslim and terrorist nations to surrender their weapons of war. She will next assure the tree-huggers that they will, hug and kiss the Christians and Jews and decide to give the world all of their oil, free.
Believing this will happen is about as big of a pipe dream as Obama and Congress scrapping Obamacare voluntarily. Just being an old native Texan who loves America, let me share the way I would define “Courage”.
“Any leader without Courage is more dangerous that the worst enemy you will ever face.”
America’s economic future is the best example of how a leaderless government designed train wreck is inevitable. It’s not a matter of if, it is certain and the only variable now is when.
