Obama’s Foreign Policy..

According to Webster: pol·i·cy, A plan or course of action.

I recently composed a blog entitled; “simple,” meant to enlighten my readers to the fact that more often than not, a job, chore, or endeavor is not as difficult as it is made to be via ignorance.

According to Webster: ig·no·rance, The condition of being uneducated, unaware, or uninformed.

We, “we the people” of the United States of America are presently “negotiating,”…

(Sidebar)

According to Webster: ne·go·ti·at·ing, To confer with another or others in order to come to terms or reach an agreement.

Continuing…

..via “our” Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Hillary Clinton is our Secretary of State, due to the fact that America is a democratic republic, we, “we the people,” (elect) i.e., (hire,) via ballot, those that work for us. After which, ..those that we elect, ..i.e., ..hire, ..appoint others to work for us, ..”we the people.” Hillary Clinton is the person that Barack obama appointed to be “our” Secretary of State. Is she qualified? Or was she appointed because of politics? You decide.

From an article updated January 21, 2012 posted onndtv.com 

 Secretary of State Hillary Clinton 

Washington: U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has said that Iran can make a choice to either come back to the negotiating table or face further isolation and sanctions from the international community.

(Sidebar) Remove your (dummy) cap for a moment, ..and slip on your (thinking) cap to ponder my next questiion; “Is America the richest, most technologically advanced nation on the planet Earth. If you answered anything except “Yes” ..put your (dummy) cap back on and go get a cup of coffee. If you replied “Yes” ..then your probably smart emough to go about your day without reading any further, ..however, ..as a personal favor, ..I would appreciate it if you would read on, ..at least until November 6, ..because America and I have never needed you more than “we” need “you” now. America is not the (on our knees) Nation that Barack Obama would have you believe. America is not only at the top of the (food chain) ..”we” are the (eight hundred pound gorilla) in the room. We, “America” ( should not ) be giving arrogant pipsqueak nation’s like Iran a choice as to whether or not, “they,” want to negotiate with us.  Think about it for just one more  moment, “America” (800 pound gorilla), Iran, (pipsqueak).

 Continuing…

“Iran does have a choice to make. It can come back to the (negotiating) table, as we have consistently made clear to them, and address the “nuclear program concerns” that the “international community” rightly has, or face increasing pressure and isolation,”Clinton said yesterday.

Strong words? Not from my perspective. Especially since the latest media releases that I am aware of report that we, America, has just agreed to allow Iran another “five weeks,” to decide whatever they want to decide, ..if indeed, “they” actually have an intention to make a decision?

(Sidebar) Please commit the following images to your “Hippocampus.”

(800 Pound Gorilla)

(Pipsqueak ) 

According to Webster: pip-squeak, One that is small or insignificant.

The hippocampus is a major component of the brains of humans and other vertebrates. It belongs to the limbic system and plays important roles in the consolidation of information from short-term memory to long-term memory and spatial navigation. Humans and other mammals have two hippocampi, one in each side of the brain. The hippocampus is closely associated with the cerebral cortex, and in primates is located in the medial temporal lobe, underneath the cortical surface. It contains two main interlocking parts: Ammon’s horn and the dentate gyrus. (Source Wikipedia)

Alluding to History: Teddy Roosevelt and his “Big Stick.”

In 1904, (then) President “Teddy” Roosevelt sent the South Atlantic Squadron to Morocco after “Ion Perdicaris and his stepson” were kidnapped by the “Raisuli.” (Source, suite101.com)

Of course as it is with history, (sadly) more often than not, when being written for political profit, it is distorted.

Nevertheless, before an event finds its way into the archives of history, we, “we that believe we have a grasp on reality,” referred to it as the present.

According to Webster: pres·ent, (in context) A moment or period in time perceptible as intermediate between past and future; now.

 

 Theodore “Teddy” Roosevelt

Theodore “Teddy” Roosevelt, America’s 26th President, a man of both “public and private renowned,” ..chose to spend his “fifteen minutes” in granite. Although Teddy’s threat of; “Perdicaris alive or Raisuli dead!” Was politically motivated and likely as hollow as the Grand Canyon, his adversary was not aware of that…

(Sidebar) Likely because in 1904, the “News Media” was not a self aggrandized, selfish, (anti-everything) entity.

Continuing…

..plus “Teddy” didn’t give “Raisuli” five weeks to think about what he wanted to do?

Which in my book, says that Roosevelt had something going for him. Roosevelt understood America to be a “Great Nation” and appreciated being an American, both by his words and his deeds, ..his lifelong deeds.

 Theodore “Teddy” Roosevelt  

Theodore “Teddy” Roosevelt, October 27, 1858, January 6, 1919, was the 26th President of the United States of America (1901–1909).

He is noted for his exuberant personality, range of interests and achievements, and his leadership of the Progressive Movement, as well as his “cowboy” persona and robust masculinity.He was a leader of the Republican Party and founder of the short-lived Progressive (“Bull Moose”) Party of 1912. Before becoming President, he held offices at the city, state, and federal levels.

Roosevelt’s achievements as a naturalist, explorer, hunter, author, and soldier are as much a part of his fame as any office he held as a politician.

Born into a wealthy family in New York City, Roosevelt was a sickly child who suffered from asthma and stayed at home studying natural history. To compensate for his physical weakness, he embraced a strenuous life. Home-schooled, he became an eager student of nature. He attended Harvard College, where he studied biology, boxed and developed an interest in naval affairs. In 1881, one year out of Harvard, he was elected to the New York State Assembly, where he became a leader of the reform faction of his Republican party (the “GOP”).

His “The Naval War of 1812” (1882) established his professional reputation as a serious historian; he wrote numerous books on hunting, the outdoors, and current political issues, as well as frontier history. In 1884, his wife and his mother died on the same day.

He left politics and went to the frontier, becoming a rancher in the “Badlands” in the Dakotas. Returning home, he ran for mayor in 1886, finishing third with 60,000 votes.

He later gained fame by taking vigorous charge of the city police. At the national level, he was a leader in civil service reform.

The Spanish–American War broke out in 1898 while Roosevelt was, effectively, running the Department of the Navy.

He promptly resigned and formed the Rough Riders – a volunteer cavalry regiment that fought in Cuba.

Question: What battle did Barack Obama fight in?

Response: Barack Obama chose to join a community organization that signed (idle) people up for entitlements and food stamps. 

Of course I am not going to forget George W. Bush, albeit George did serve in the “Texas Air National Guard,” when Vietnam became a threat to “his” person, he ran to Tennessee like a gerbil being chased by a red tail hawk.

Editorial: As a Vietnam veteran and the recipient of a Purple Heart, I have no respect for either Barack Obama or George W. Bush.

Roosevelt was elected governor in 1898 and in 1900 was nominated for vice president. He successfully energized the GOP base as a highly visible campaigner to reelect President William McKinley on a platform of high tariffs, the gold standard, imperialism, prosperity at home and victory abroad.

In 1901, President William McKinley was assassinated and Roosevelt became President at the age of 42; he remains the youngest president. Roosevelt attempted to move the Republican Party (GOP) toward Progressivism, including trust busting and increased regulation of businesses.

Roosevelt coined the phrase “Square Deal” to describe his domestic agenda, emphasizing that the average citizen would get a fair share under his policies. As an outdoorsman and naturalist, he promoted the conservation movement.

On the world stage, Roosevelt’s policies were characterized by his slogan, “Speak softly and carry a big stick”. Roosevelt was the force behind the completion of the Panama Canal; sent the Great White Fleet on a world tour to demonstrate American power; and negotiated an end to the Russo-Japanese War, for which he won the Nobel Peace Prize.

Roosevelt has consistently been ranked by scholars as one of the greatest U.S.Presidents. (Source Wikipedia)

Editorial: “In “my personal opinion,” under Presidents like Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama America has turned into a glass of nonfat milk.”

(Sidebar)

There are still a lot of “Pioneers and Cowboys” left in this Great Nation. America needs an individual, (now more than ever) that has walked up the mountain, touched a Pine tree without a pair of gloves, and caught a 3 pound trout on a 4 ounce line.

America is still a refuge for honest men and women seeking opportunity, (our founding fathers vision).

We, “we the people” are responsible for allowing America to become a resort and a cornucopia for the selfish and greedy.

America needs to get serious about looking for another cowboy.

Question: Who would vote with me right now for a “Happy Trail?

Think about it, I’ll be back tomorrow
