Obama is not a Hero…

I am finding it hard to fathom why we are calling Obama a hero in the death of a terrorist, Osama Bin Laden. From all the news reports, it seems that it was our great military that carried out the mission, and put their lives on the line to protect each and every one of us.

Don’t get me wrong, I am extremely glad that OBL is no longer walking the soil of this earth as the next person. I have to wonder, why now? Is this part of Obama’s re-election plan? That he needs to improve his record of leadership and running this country. And what better way to do that then to take out enemy number one.

As Congress returned to Washington, DC yesterday after their two week vacation, there was not one mention on the news about the economy, unemployment, debt-ceiling or the budget.

America’s problems still exist Mr. President, and you have probably added some more. We can all cheer that the mastermind of September 11, 2001 has been brought to justice, but this doesn’t come without a price. We entered another country without their knowledge and carried out a military operation. Does our Commander-in-Chief not think there will be serious repercussions from this action? So much for foreign policy. I just hope that the hype from the outcome from this military action outweighs the possible fallout.

Bringing one terrorist to justice is not the makings of a great President, nor does it make him a hero. I am sure our Campaigner-in-Chief will ride out the glory in his attempt to be re-elected. Nothing has really changed in his lack of leadership to turn our nation around and be on a road to prosperity, instead of the road that we are on that very soon ends at the edge of a cliff.

Our true heroes are our military, all the volunteers that are helping with the devastation in our southern states, all those that have made donations or sent supplies, every firefighter and emergency personnel, and each and every family that are doing whatever is necessary to get through these tough times and are preparing for tougher times ahead. These are the true heroes, that do what they do each and every day….Thank you!
