Time to stop apologizing and appeasing


Why are so many people eager to put Mitt Romney on the spot about his religion, but just don't care about Barack Obama's? If it's an important issue for Romney, who may be our next president, why isn't it important for Obama, who is our current president?

Obama describes himself as a Christian. Yet, he honors Islam, a religion that doesn't acknowledge Jehovah-Jireh (The Lord Who Provides), the God of the Bible. Nor does Islam accept the authority of Jesus Christ, God's son. It calls the crucifixion a lie. If Obama truly is a Christian, why does he quote the Koran far more than the Bible? Why doesn't he assert the Gospel of Jesus Christ? Doing so doesn't express hatred for Muslims. Jesus loves Muslims, whether peaceful or violent.

Apparently Obama considers America a Muslim country. He considers it his duty as president to wipe out negative stereotypes about Islam. There are negative stereotypes about Christianity, too. Does Obama's "duty" apply?

Obama's belief system affects his policies in the Middle East. We've seen the carnage in Benghazi, Libya, where our ambassador and three members of his staff were murdered. This happened on the anniversary of 9-11.

A coincidence? Not likely! Muslim extremists went on hateful rampages in other countries, tore down and burned the American flag. Supposedly, this was done to protest an insult against their religion. However, the message is clear to those paying attention. Radical Islam is intent on destroying America.

Obama makes excuses for the Muslim Brotherhood's violent behavior. Its members chant "Death to America" while Obama offers apologies and appeasement. Obviously he thinks those who hate America will respect him.

Has Obama seen his picture being burned alongside the American flag? Does he realize the significance of his being burned in effigy? It's not a compliment. It's not a show of respect. Reality check for Obama ... the Muslim extremists hate him. They consider him the enemy. Talking nice-nice doesn't work!

Attempting to soothe the feelings of those who intend to destroy us has weakened America's position and put us in harm's way. It's time President Obama stop acting like a Milquetoast wimp. If he's truly a Christian, he should get his priorities in place.

It's time to stop apologizing and appeasing. America needs a strong leader. It isn't Barack Obama.

For someone who tries to come off as being so worldly, it works until a person reads in about the first sentence, then it's discovered you have no real worldly view outside of your GOP/TP bubble.
Don't you have any care as to how your letters make you out to be quite uneducated to the world as a whole, our Country's leader, or anything else in the political process.
I have always been curious as to what compels people to write such foolishness, make a public fool of themselves, and continually document for all to see their lack of any true knowledge of those who lead our Country, and their resulting actions that you have so much trouble with.

tpeacock,, you spent a lot of time attacking the person who wrote this, but not one word on where she might be stating something that is not true. The fact is her comments are very accurate. The fact that you attack her and do not address one talking point that she has put out there shows that you are probabily the one that needs more education.

You can say what you want to about the writer but you cannot dispute the facts she has presented, even though I am sure you will try to put the Obama twist on it !!

It seems free speech only relates to Democrats because if a conservative posts a comment they are uneducated? Just typical I guess when you have that progressive taker attitude instead of being on the failing maker side of the issue.
