It's funny to watch Democrats as they scramble to cover up for Obama's reckless, incompetent and weak foreign policy and the disaster which is the consequence. They can't defend Obama so they demand we all rally around the flag, put our criticism aside and unite behind Obama.
By "unite" they mean don't ask questions or demand answers.
Yet, during the Bush years, the same people went out of their way to trash President Bush. Elected leaders like Harry Reid even declared that the Iraq War "is lost." This is the same Senate Majority Leader who called President Bush a "loser" and a "liar."
And when the Bush Administration dared to push back, even meekly so, they were met with torrents of abuse including this rather shrill gem from Hillary Clinton:
And now Mitt Romney dares to stand up and express his outrage at the attacks on our embassies overseas and point to the failed leadership of President Obama and all of a sudden Romney is the problem? Give me a break!
We do not find ourselves in this mess by accident. Obama made it very clear from the beginning of his term that he would take our foreign policy in a new direction. That direction was guided by a radical left wing ideology that insists America is part of the problem, not the solution. His world wide apology tours, the weakening of our alliances and his inability or unwillingness to do more than "lead from behind" when a crisis looms are all chickens coming home to roost.
Criticizing Romney while giving Obama a pass and demanding we all salute and shut up is a clear admission that there is no defense for Obama's failed leadership!
