And he is not a 'True' Democrat by any historical definition
And it really is amazing how much this liar gets credit for things he spent most of his political life fighting against,
For instance Out magazine whose readership is primarily gays and lesbians put him on the latest cover and did a complete puff piece giving him credit for getting gay marriage passed in the Supreme Court as if he was always a champion of equality for people of all sexual lifestyles..
"What I believe is that marriage is between a man and a woman … What I believe, in my faith, is that a man and a woman, when they get married, are performing something before God, and it's not simply the two persons who are meeting... I don't think marriage is a civil right," then-U.S. Senate candidate Obama said in an interview with WTTW Chicago public television.
Obama in October, 2010: " I have been to this point unwilling to sign on to same-sex marriage primarily because of my understandings of the traditional definitions of marriage," President Obama said during an interview with liberal bloggers.
Of course the Obama ass-kissing sycophants call his ultimate move to support gay marriage an 'evolution' of ideas but we all know what it was.. VP Biden took the lead on the issue in 2012 and Obama was trapped politically to support and go along with it..
Same thing going on in his continual refusal to treat ISIS with the seriousness or gravity to which the problem deserves being dealt with..
The following was written by Paul McHale who is a former member of Congress from Pennsylvania, a former Assistant Secretary of Defense for Homeland Defense, and a retired Marine colonel with 33 years active and reserve service..
He is also a lifelong Democrat:
"The lineup was impressive. During the past week Bob Gates, Leon Panetta, Chuck Hagel, Diane Feinstein, Mike Vickers, Mike Flynn — even Hillary Clinton — all took shots at Barack Obama’s strategy to defeat ISIS.
Or to be more precise, they correctly noted the absence of such a strategy.
In the face of this bipartisan criticism from defense and intelligence heavyweights, President Obama has relentlessly continued his smug, morally superior, emotionally contained, intellectually detached impersonation of Neville Chamberlain.
Our president really, really doesn’t want us to be drawn into an avoidable conflict. Let someone else do the fighting. And above all, we must not “overreact” to the tragic loss of life in Paris.
But rest assured, ISIS has been “contained.” Because he says so.
The true danger to global security, the president has concluded, lies within the very core of our national character — We the People are prone to racism, religious bigotry, “right wing” extremism, and gun-toting violence. Every war is a potential Vietnam.
Every administration critic is a Joe McCarthy.. Barack Obama’s mission in life is to courageously confront his own country’s arrogance. All will be good in the world (he thinks) so long as our inner John Wayne stays locked up.
How could we have elected (twice) a president with so little faith in America?
That question will be keeping historians occupied for the next 100 years. But right now, there’s a wolf closer to the sled..."
McHale then goes on in an op-ed piece printed in many newspapers yesterday to explain the genuine mortal threat ISIS is to this nation's safety and that of its citizenry..
"In the remaining year of his presidency, Barack Obama can do much for our country (and much to repair his tattered foreign policy legacy), by letting go of his sympathetic identification with the antiwar movement of the 1960s... Overt cowardice in the face of ISIS isn’t the lesson to be learned.
The intense criticism of the president ISIS “strategy” from former defense officials has been blunt in content and public in delivery. Their message has a consistent theme. Outdated and misguided presidential rhetoric won’t stop the ISIS beheadings, the mass migration of innocent Syrians, or the barbaric intolerance of religious fanatics.
It’s time for the United States to lead from the front"
