As Obama’s FINAL YEAR Begins…

Posted January 20th, 2016 by Iron Mike

I woke up from a bad dream this morning – the ‘Veteran’s Curse’, – and remembered back to my youth, – back when Americans didn’t wake up wondering what our government had done to us overnight,  – or was planning to do to us today…
Ike and JFK
It was back when Dwight Eisenhower was running the country,  – quietly – without a lot of flair, – and no teleprompters.

Ike with Truman

I was a high school senior when Jack Kennedy was elected and sworn in.  I didn’t like him much,  – I thought he was way too young,  – but nobody thought he was foreign-born,  a Muslim,  – or an anti-capitalist, – or even a Socialist.

And he did start us toward the Moon, – and he stood strong over Soviet missiles in Cuba; – so unlike Obama today who seems not to worry about Iranian missiles or Iranian intentions….even as he bankrolls them.

Then came a series of disasters, – LBJ, Nixon, Ford, Carter….each more inept, each more unwilling to stand up to evil and lead allies….

1980 Election Results

 

I remember the feeling of relief that swept the Nation as Reagan won, – and as he formed his cabinet.

Very quietly he sent Jim Baker to meet with the Iranians – and tell them he intended to nuke them…

20 Jan 81

I remember the national euphoria as he was being sworn in – and the split TV screen showing our hostages headed for the airport in Tehran….

Our hostages return

…I remember the outpouring of national joy the next day, Wednesday Jan 21st – when Reagan came to West Point to greet the hostages – quietly, in private, – no public chest-thumping….no victory lap…

That was 35 years ago…nearly half my lifetime.

We need a day like that again!   We need a president who by instinct, character, and conviction will always do the right thing, – and do it quietly without chest-thumping.

Reagan and Thatcher vs Obama and Clinton

We need a patriotnot another lifelong liar or another lifelong commie!

Obama & Clinton strictly for themselves

    3-6-5 What do these numbers mean? Perhaps I should say 365… Is this a combination to a security lock? Is this the winning numbers on a lottery ticket? No! These numbers 365 mean, simply, 365 days left in this ‘presidency’. Yes, one year left to go.

    Maybe our next president will be proud of this country.

    It will be the longest 365 days of my lifetime. On one hand there is the countdown for Obama to leave office. On the other hand there is Obama’s race to do as much harm as possible before he goes, and I don’t have any confidence in Congress to hold him back. All I can hope for is that the next President won’t be Bernie or Hillary.

    …or Biden or the Squaw….

    Yes, Mike, Vavra and Hawk 1776,
    yes 24/7/365, seems like an eternity and in my rather old mind I fear for our progeny. I fear for our great Republic, I fear for those you are not informed enough to be fearful, I fear what these administration incompetents are plotting and planning to unravel the Constitution who so many have fought and died for since 1775, I fear that the press will never wake up and perform as they were intended to perform in the Bill of Rights. I fear no man, but I fear because anyone who does not has not been paying attention. May God Bless the United States of America.
