Disastrous Obama-Clinton foreign policy one and the same
We’ve all heard the claim from the uninformed, “There’s not a dime’s worth of difference between the Democrats and Republicans.” Most conservative activists realize there’s no point in debating with those so abysmally ill-informed, outside of suggesting they read the very divergent platforms of the two parties — something we know they won’t bother doing.
While Republicans promote less government and advocate personal responsibility, Democrats support increasingly expansive government and win by promising to provide more while disincentivizing individual effort.
Saturday night’s Democrat debate at Drake University in Iowa, between Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton and Martin O’Malley, lowers the bar further. Just a single day after coordinated teams of ISIS Muslim jihadists wrought carnage in Paris, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton — taking a clue from her former boss Barack Obama — refused to use the words, “radical Islam.”
As these brazen killers were finalizing their deadly plans, Obama proved his ineptness in this interview with George Stephanopoulos the preceding day, by announcing he doesn’t think ISIS is gaining strength. “We have contained them,” he boasts. (Video under link)
Vermont Sen. Sanders, a self-described Democrat Socialist, whose main thrust is advocating class warfare by demonizing job creators, actually asserted climate change is a cause of terrorism, and indeed, poses a greater threat than terrorism. France, in shock after Friday night’s horrors, appears to agree, since it still plans to host the Nov. 30 – Dec. 11 global climate change summit with over a hundred world leaders “because it’s an essential meeting for humanity,” according to the French Prime Minister.
Essential for humanity is ridding the globe of ISIS based radical Islamic terrorism. That begins by calling it by its rightful name, something neither Clinton nor Obama are inclined to do. The other imperative is shutting down the admittance of mostly young male Muslims claiming refugee status in Europe and the U.S., at least a couple of whom participated in the savage slaughter of innocents at six different sites across Paris.
O’Malley, the former governor of Maryland, appears the most reasonable of the Democrat debate trio, which explains why he isn’t registering a blip on the polling radar.
