"Provocative" or Downright Aggression?

Do you mean to tell me the President didn't know Iran had the capability to launch short-range missiles when he announced we were scrapping our plans to build a missile defense system in Poland and the Czech Republic? Ironic or unfortunate we made the announcement on the 70th anniversary of the Soviet invasion of Poland?

"Provocative" as our State Department said or downright aggression when Iran tested their short-range missiles yesterday on Yom Kippur?

Embarrassing or deplorable that our President announced the same day the missiles were being launched that he would jaunt off to Copenhagen to make a personal plea to the Olympic committee for the 2016 Olympics to be held in Chicago?

Shameful or simply frightening that our commander in Afghanistan...the one hand-picked by the President for the job and confirmed by the Senate has spoken to him only once in 70 days while he waits for the 40,000 troops he requested? (Even the media is outraged by the way, http://www.newsweek.com/id/215991?tid=relatedcl)

Meanwhile in the very Chicago Obama claims as his home, rival gangs have been fighting for a month at Fenger High School killing an innocent 16 year old honor student last Thursday. Many Fenger High School students don't want to go school at all. They are afraid.

Coincidence or just really bad timing for the president's Olympic plans and his proposal that we move to a year round school curriculum?

Vice President, Joe Biden told us during the campaign that this President would be tested:

"Watch. We're going to have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy. And he's going to need help...to stand with him. Because it's not going to be apparent initially; it's not going to be apparent that we're right." (Biden, New York Post)

Well, Joe, I finally agree with you. He is being tested. Our troops are at risk. Young men and women who have sacrificed to serve their country, to serve us, are being ignored by an Administration that insists on ramming through a health care bill 56% of Americans don't want, giving speeches to anyone that will listen, appearing on the late night shows, every Sunday morning news show, presiding over the UN General Assembly and now--another first--flying to Copenhagen to make a personal plea for the Olympics...Meanwhile our commander in Afghanistan waits for the troops he requires, our unemployment rate (the one that wouldn't rise above 8% if the President's stimulus bill was passed in February) is now almost 10%, growth is stalled, the dollar continues in free fall and free speech is on the retreat.

Yep Joe your words are prophetic. It is most definitely not apparent Obama is right. Or even paying attention for that matter.
