I cannot help but wonder about the leadership of this country. I feel, personally, that this administration is leading us down the wrong path. Here we are trying to get backing to go into Syria when those major countries (who are far better off economically than us) are threatening retaliation if we should get involved in this civil war.
First of all, why would we send troops there in the first place? We are in debt so deep, in large part due to the last two wars in which we were engaged, that we can't possible afford to enter a new conflict. How can a man who closed the White House to tourists, put a wage freeze on White House staff (he should've put a wage freeze on Congress!!!), signed an order banning gifts from lobbyists and banning anyone from
working in an agency they had lobbied in previous years (he promptly made
the order toothless by immediately granting a waiver to a former defense
lobbyist), passed a stimulus package that is creating no jobs across the country, (this bill has given more to the rich than every previous President
combined!), did not support and protect our people in Benghazi who ended up being tortured to death!, took a very expensive vacation to Africa (spending millions of dollars) at a time when we are trying to cut back government spending, and more, possibly think that we should involve ourselves in another middle eastern war supporting the terrorists who bombed us on 9/11? It makes no sense to me!
I know it isn't just Obama's fault. We have a group of Americans that we voted into office that do not know the meaning of compromise and would rather see American's suffer than allow this President to succeed in anything. And these same leaders are agreeing to send troops to Syria? I believe they just want to put another major FAIL under the belt of Obama.
