Obama focused on Romney, not radical Islam

The Arab world in flames, our embassies burning, our ambassador to Libya, Chris Stevens, dead and some evidence that Libyan security forces pointed out the location to which the ambassador had been secreted.

With all of this going on, President Barack Obama chose to criticize statements by Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney instead of recognizing that the attacks were an Islamic celebration of 9/11.

After the aforementioned events, Romney criticized an official who defended the actions of the enraged Muslim community. Rather than agreeing with Romney, Obama decided, in turn, to criticize Romney and not condemn the attacks on American embassies.

The president and a subservient press are trying to make the disasters in the Arab world about Mitt Romney, rather than pointing a finger at this president's own foreign policy blunders.

CNN, interviewing John McCain, kept attempting to force the senator to disparage the Romney comments. McCain, to his credit refused to take the bait and instead condemned the Middle East policies of this administration. CNN continues to interview those who want this president reelected and will find fault with anything that Romney says.

Obama has done nothing to discourage radical Islam. Obama has no problem with $1.5 billion per year of our money pouring into the Muslim Brotherhood, even as our embassy burns and the streets of Cairo are filled with American Flag-burning rabble. Israel news reports that this president refuses to meet with Benjamin Netanyahu, even though Netanyahu has requested a meeting to clarify American intentions regarding the nuclear capabilities of Iran.

If I sound biased, I am.

I see my country headed down a path of appeasement. Radical Islam is rising in Iraq, the administration releases information about the Osama Bin Laden raid and a doctor who assisted America is imprisoned in Pakistan. Afghanistan, after years of occupation, is no closer to the "democracy" we planned than it was when we entered. We helped free Libya from a dictatorship and they repay us with the death of our ambassador. Thousands in Syria are dead and we sit on our hands and watch TV battles.

We are in trouble, Israel is in trouble and the sound of a fiddle coming from the White House echoes across the flames.

Lawrence enjoys all sports and has played most, but has been a baseball fan above all and enjoys the Diamondbacks particularly when they win, tolerates the team when they lose. Favorite memories are opening day for Major League Baseball in the Valley and sitting in row three along third-base line when the D- backs won the World Series. One other memory he'll always carry with him, the time he spent with the Beatles and stood outside a nightclub finding dates for the Fab Four in Cleveland. Lawrence's musical tastes are eclectic, from classical to rap with country thrown in. He'd be just as likely to attend a Phoenix Symphony concert or ballet as he would a George Strait concert.
