Boy! That last quote by Mr. Scheuer nailed it when he said that we have to stop depending on "surrogates," i.e. Pakistan, Yemen, etc., and use "our own strong right arm." Not only that. He also said that there is no clause in the Constitution that allows for the President to delegate the country's defense. The exact quote was:"There is no clause in the Constitution that says that President Obama can delegate the defense of America to a Yemeni dictator."And yet, Obama does that because he'd rather reign, not lead. He reacts quickly to criticism because he is thinned-skinned. That's why he can't be a leader. Being a leader exposes him to criticism and sometimes opposition. A king, on the other hand, expects to be obeyed no matter what. Regardless of criticism or opposition. And boy does Obama know it. The only thing that stands in the way of Obama and the imposition of his will on the American people is the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The protection of the American people is a bothersome detail to godling Obama.
Scheuer is great, he has been critical of Clinton, Bush 43 and now Obama...he is consistent.Some individuals do not like him because they say he harbors some emnity vis a vis Israel, which I staunchly support.But it seems to me he is exactly correct, as you denote, the surrogates line is clarion.As for "Baby Jesus", as Charles Krauthammer calls him, Comrade Zero is notoriously "thinned-skinned" and his goose stepping hounds of Axelrod and Emanuel are trying to cover up his failure in this matter with the typical blame Bush rhetoric.Moreover, Obama's background leaves much to be desired in that he does not view our Republic in an exceptional fashion and constantly connotes his multi national heritage, down playing allegiance to our nation in the most egregious ways.
BTW, sorry for the delay in responding....best regards
