Barack Obama's disdain for America's Military-might is taken straight from the mouth of Bill Ayers. Obama's horribly harsh words about our Military in Afghanistan, and the Bush administration's actions there mimicked a recent interview of Bill Ayers. Have to wonder how recently they cozied-up and planned their strategy.
Barack Obama, speaking with Steve Kroft on 60 Minutes, bashed the Bush administration for entering into Afghanistan with an attitude of the war being "some glorious exercise," as our soldiers searched for al-Qaeda and some sense of justice for those who died on September 11, 2001. He mocked the winning attitude taken by the military, as the tendency to believe "We can go in; we can kick some tail."
Well, yes we certainly can kick some tail, even when the Commander-in-Chief is no Commander at all, and even if when that Commander-in-Chief has abdicated all reason for respect of leadership or his love of this country. His children are freerer only because the U.S. can kick some tail, no credit to him.
Disdaining victory, when soldiers are risking their lives, loved ones are sacrificing, and their Commander-in-Chief boils it down to "some glorious exercise," - right out of the mouth of radical Weatherman, William "Bill" Ayers.
Ayers criticized the United States as a "warrior nation" and said he believes the War in Afghanistan is "an invasion and an occupation." Ayers said Obama's decision to send 30,000 additional troops to Afghanistan is a "catastrophe."
He really summed up his view of his own nation by saying that "the idea (America) has been a force for good in the world for the last six decades is utter nonsense."As you watch the video below, you'll hear Ayers call for the closing of all American military bases around the world. Be reminded as Ayers talks, that Obama funneled millions of dollars to Ayers, and don't forget this part of the Ayers-Obama relationship. Ayers indicates that he will be a very active participant in turning America into a weak, ineffectual Nation.
Ayers is a man who can't stand his own country. Despite the hundreds of millions of people who have been liberated by the United States, despite the defeat of the Soviet Union, despite America's work to feed the hungry and provide medicine and aid across the world, Ayers sees nothing good about the greatest nation on the face of the earth.
These are the people our President has listened to for years. Ayers displays for us the attitude that many on the Left have about America. That's why they are so dead set on "change." They don't like our history, our values, and the principles that have made America the defender of freedom in the world. Essentially, they want America to stop being America, and become a socialist European-style state. I don't believe this is what Americans were bargaining for when they voted for Obama out of emotion, fear and frustration. We'll find out in the 2010 mid-term elections.
