I've been reading the Liberal message boards on the latest treasonous Leon Panetta bullshit, and the Libs are claiming that the Obama Administration has "public support" for this Socialist undermining of our Constitution.
U.S. Defense Secretary Panetta Wants "International Permission," NOT Congressional Permission, for American Military Action
An astonishing exchange between Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Senator Jeff Sessions:
Here's the relevant transcript, though the whole thing is worth watching:SESSIONS: “Do you think you can act without Congress and initiate a no-fly zone in Syria without congressional approval?”PANETTA: “Our goal would be to seek international permission… Whether or not we would want to get permission from the Congress — I think those are issues we would have to discuss as we decide what to do here.”SESSIONS: “Well I am almost breathless about that because what I heard you say is, ‘we’re going to seek international approval and we’ll come and tell the Congress what we might do, and we might seek congressional approval’… Wouldn’t you agree that would be pretty breathtaking to the average American?”
Obama entered office as America was engaged in TWO major military operations (Iraq and Afghanistan), of which the American public DID NOT approve in 2008 (if we are to believe the Liberal-controlled mainstream media).
No, I haven't forgotten the little Cindy Sheehan movement nor the Liberal-orchestrated anti-war protests late in the Bush administration. Apparently the Libs HAVE forgotten.
Obama was elected in large part because he LIED to America, promising to END our operations in Afghanistan and Iraq; AFTER he was elected, he sent 30,000 MORE American troops into Afghanistan, as well as ESCALATED our involvement to FIVE military operations in the Middle East and North Africa, and WITHOUT "public support."
Obama initiated NEW military operations in Libya and elsewhere within a matter of WEEKS; whereas, George W. Bush waited 18 MONTHS — pending Congressional debate and growing public support — BEFORE sending American troops into Iraq in March 2003.
George W. Bush had REAL American support for his actions, while Barack Hussein Obama acted WITHOUT consulting the American people. Or, more accurately, Obama acted in THE ABSENCE of public dissent as it is usually reported in the Liberal mainstream media.
See, when a LIBERAL president decides to play War, the mainstream media MUZZLES public dissent. Bill Clinton deployed more American troops on more FUTILE missions than ANY president in history, for example — that's just a documented fact, go check the National Archives.
Remember all the foaming, nationwide anti-war protests during the Clinton administration? No? That's because there WERE NO protests, in spite of Clinton's criminal militarism. Or, at least, no protests were reported, just as American military death tolls were suppressed during the Clinton administration.
Hmm. Come to think of it, I haven't SEEN the Liberal media frantically publishing American troop deaths under the Obama administration, as they did under the Bush administration. All we hear these days are occasional reports about military "accidents" — helicopter crashes, etc.
And when American soldiers were recently MURDERED in Afghanistan (over the ridiculous Koran-burning incident), Barack Hussein Obama APOLOGIZED to Afghanistan. "Oh, one of YOUR troops MURDERED a couple of MY guys? Oh, I'm so sorry!"
How does that work, I wonder? Did Obama have "public support" for apologizing to Afghanistan, too?
No, virtually EVERYTHING about the Obama Administration — every piece of legislation, every act of militarism, every Socialist attack on our Constitution — has transpired WITHOUT the support of the American people.
