OBAMA: Affirmative action in action

Barack Obama was elected because of “white guilt.”

Although I agree with that, Geraldine Ferraro, the Democratic vice-presidential candidate in 1984, is the one who said it not too long before she passed away.

As of today, Obama’s approval rating stands at an embarrassingly low 43 percent and is only that high because of the extreme loyalty of the great majority of black and Hispanic voters, hard-core white Democrats who automatically vote the party line, and political correctness run amok that brands those who opposes his agenda as racists.

When it comes to foreign affairs – like bringing the terrorists who murdered American citizens in Benghazi to justice or taking decisive action in Syria – his position amounts to the fetal position. He is afraid to do something and he is afraid to do nothing, so he curls up and hopes for the best.

He promised that his administration would be the most transparent in history, and to some extent he has kept that vow as evidenced by his willingness to stand on the floor of the United Nations and tell the world that the slaughter of our ambassador and three other Americans was simply the result of an anti-Islamic movie: After all, who couldn’t see through that statement?

Now he is chatting it up with the president of the country that supplies most of the weaponry used by Islamic jihadists who are hell-bent on ridding the world of infidels.

Who thought that America doesn’t negotiate with terrorists?
