The Color of Barack Obama’s Character!

By: Richard H. Frank

Doctor Martin Luther King Jr. in his “I have a dream speech”, stated that we should judge a man not by the color of his skin but by his character. Each of us may define character differently. Although the dictionary defines “character” in vague adjectives that cover a wide assortment of situations and conditions, there is one definition upon which I feel we can all agree upon. Character among men is embodied within the action you take to carry out the “Values, Ethics and Morals” you believe in.

  • Consistency between what you say you will do and what you actually do.
  • Championing and putting ethics into action.
  • Moral strength. It takes moral courage to do what is right when it may cost you more than you are willing to pay.
  • Who you are and what you do when no one is looking.

William Penn put “character” in terms we can all understand when he said, “Wrong is wrong, even if everyone is doing it. Right is still right, even if no one else is doing it.” So what may we conclude from the above? Character is predicated upon the values and principles which a person’s beliefs are founded.

Politically, we use terms such as ideology, the rule of law and transparency to measure our leaders’ character against. Unfortunately, most politicians fail to live up to these measures and the values and principles embodied in the Declaration of Independence and our Constitution. The latest and most revealing look into Barack Obama’s character and that of his administration is evidenced in their explanation of what occurred in the Benghazi, Libya consulate the evening of 9/11/2012 leading to the murder of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.

It is amazing how quickly our President and his administration placed the blame for uprisings on September 11th in more than 20 middle east countries on a video trailer mocking the Islamic prophet Mohamed. Any evidence to the contrary was suppressed for over one month as it would prove to undermine the Presidents foreign policies in the region. One month following the attack as the truth continued to emerge we see that there was no uprising in Benghazi resulting from the video trailer and that the attack was indeed a planned coordinated terrorist assault upon the consulate. Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Susan Rice even in the face of undisputed evidence continued to insist the killings were the result of a mob gone out of control protesting the video.As the truth emerged the spin merchants in Washington began to construct their smoke screen to protect the President and his administration against voter retaliation with the general election just under 4 weeks away.

Following the explanation given by Obama and Clinton on September 12th the President boarded Air Force One to attend a fund raiser in Nevada leaving family members of the murdered Americans with a myriad of unanswered questions. So much for what the President says and what he does.

This week, a full month following the terrorist attack, the professionals within the State Department decided to come clean and admit they knew the attack was a planned terrorist assault from the outset and not the result of any video trailer. They apparently decided they would not become the fall guys for Obama, Clinton and the administration’s flawed foreign policies. Now that the can has been opened the administration is scrambling to keep the worms from escaping  before the election takes place on November 6, 2012. Unfortunately for Obama and his administration the lid has been removed from this scandal and the truth will be pursued beyond the election regardless of the outcome of the November vote.

Those of us that experienced the Watergate scandal and the eventual resignation of President Nixon for covering up a burglary know that the breech of the consulate in Libya and resulting murder of four Americans is much more serious than any break-in. No one was murdered as a result of Watergate but we have four dead patriots as a result of Obama’s policies in Libya. Congressman Issa’s oversight committee must diligently pursue the truth and hold those in government accountable for not providing protection to our men and women overseas in service to this nation.

If the color of Obama’s character and that of his administration were to be defined by the events on 9/11 in Libya, I believe it would be labeled as “YELLOW”.

J. Christopher Stevens’ Murder – “Just a Bump in the Road!”

By Richard H. Frank

Once again, Barack Obama has shown his true colors proclaiming on “60 Minutes” that the “criminal” assault on the Libyan Consulate that resulted in the assassination of Ambassador Stevens was just a “bump in the road” along the path to achieving democracy in the Middle East.  A President that ignores the obvious fact that the attack was a coordinated terrorist assault upon the United States on the anniversary of 9/11 is either living in some alternative universe or is just plain perpetrating a lie in order to shift responsibility for his lack of leadership and failed policies to some obscure video that allegedly insults the Prophet Mohammed.

Then on Tuesday September 25, the President addressed the UN General Assembly and used the biography of Ambassador Stevens as the introduction to his remarks leading to placing the blame for Mid-East violence against our interests on the video, asserting our Government had nothing to do with the production.

Barack Obama, the Narcissist-in-Chief, ignores his responsibility to meet with leaders of the world but takes time to appear on The View where he proclaimed his presence to be “eye candy” for the show.  Does this man have any respect for the dignity of the Office he holds?  I think it is time we judge Barack Obama not by his words alone, but by his actions, or lack of action.

Three and one-half years after assuming the Office, we are witnessing Obama’s “fundamental change” in America.  Chronic unemployment, record foreclosures, 8.2% drop in household income and a loss of 40% in the net worth of the average American.

Yet Obama continues to champion deficit spending and trillion-dollar increases in the National Debt in the name of “fairness” to correct a stagnant economy for which he assumes no responsibility.

As to his dismal record, he and  his supporters have only one response.  That response is to blame George W. Bush.  Somehow, I cannot find George W. Bush on the ballot anywhere in America and think it is time for the Democrats to run on their own record.

Given the reality of domestic and foreign policy today under Barack Obama, it is unbelievable that he would lead Mitt Romney in any poll concerning the 2012 Presidential election.

Should you believe the murders of J. Christopher Stevens and three other Americans are “just a bump in the road” resulting from Obama’s foreign policy, I hope we never hit a pothole along that road.  That “pothole” is coming into focus in the form of Iran’s pursuit of a nuclear weapon and having to take sides with Israel to prevent their ultimate achievement of that goal.  What will Obama do when Israel takes the initiative to protect their people from a country that has sworn to wipe them off the face of the earth.  I’m sure he will find a way to spin the situation and place the blame directly at the feet once again of George W. Bush.

The time has come to fire Obama and return this Country to the path of assuring respect for the principles and values that have made America the greatest Country in the history of the World.
