Okie-dokie. Top to bottom. Jay Carney having to tell what appears to be the biggest and most farfetched lie to ever pass through his grinning lips. He claims the wide-spread unrest and hostility---this business of killing an American Ambassador, Navy SEALS, and burning American flags has nothing to do with America or the utter hatred of our nation these actions seem to suggest. He says it is, instead, because of an inflammatory movie trailer that ridicules the Muslim religion and their prophet, dare I say it, Muhammad. I don't believe it. Look at the image in the middle. Each of those markers represent a spot on Earth where American flags are being burned, embassies are being vandalized or taken over, and more American lives are in jeopardy. I don't know what's going on but for a president who received the Nobel Peace Prize and claims to have done everything he could to satisfy relations between Muslim nations and America, and apologized to everyone he could for America simply being American, I think he is doing a terrible job. And, lastly, amidst bomb threats at universities on American soil, and even a nuclear reactor site, today; amidst all the chaos surfacing from the markers on the map above; amidst the fact that the Fed just printed another installment (QE3) of nonexistent money to appease Wall Street, only to ultimately devalue the American dollar and put our nation even more at risk only so Barack Obama can give a short-term illusion of "forward" progress to get reelected; amidst cutting our national defense budget and cutting down our nuclear arsenal to nothing more than the same amount our greatest national threats have (that's leveling the playing field; that's giving everyone a fair shot)---amidst refusing to meet with Netanyahu because he is too busy campaigning; amidst all of this---our president is having a campaign event with Jay-Z and Beyonce.

Unbelievable. This man would not have to campaign so much if he would have simply been a half-decent president to begin with. If a president does a good job of leading and the important numbers reflect his work then campaigning is hardly even necessary. Our president, on the other hand, is fighting as hard as he can just to stay afloat. What does that say about him and his policies?
