In the aftermath of super storm Sandy, we keep those impacted in our prayers, especially those who have lost loved ones. I sincerely ask you to continue to pray for all affected. I didn’t intend to bring politics into an article that dealt with the hurricane, and I do seem to remember hearing Obama say something to that effect. However, I also heard him throw his ‘lean forward’ slogan into a couple of press conferences. So he made this political first.
Having family in path of the hurricane myself, in Maryland, I have been following the events as much as possible. At the same time, I think it’s important for Americans to not lose focus on the developments of Benghazi-gate. Don’t forget, according to Rahm Emanuel, we don’t want a good crisis to go to waste. Well, hurricane Sandy was just the crisis Obama needed to take everyone’s mind off the loss of American lives in Libya and focus them elsewhere.
It is very saddening to have to say something like that. Our fellow citizens are in desperate need of our help. Yet, individuals and conglomerates of left-based groups and foundations have been “capitalizing” on the deaths and struggles of Americans and spinning them into something they can use to push agendas and hide corruption.
Just look at how the left attempts to use every gun related tragedy to try to push gun control, or how they used news about celebrities to sneak through the passage of Obamacare. We all know what happened in Benghazi. Well, all of us except Chris Matthews. We know about the lies and deceit; we now know about the possibility that the White House denied support to the Marines in Benghazi, sentencing them to death for serving this great country. Now according to recent developments, the White House, including the president, may have been watching the attack as it happened.
Earlier this week, I heard something that just made my stomach churn. During a press conference, Obama said, “we leave nobody behind,” I found that statement a little unnerving. Why would he say something like that when he did leave Marines behind, who ultimately paid the price with their lives, as a result. When I realized he was actually talking about the victims of the hurricane, I nearly came unglued.
Again, I mourn with those on the east coast who are suffering. I am not diminishing the seriousness of the situation, and I’m not saying we should leave anyone behind. What I am saying is, in light of the happenings in Benghazi, this was a very poor choice of words. Very poor Mr. President. Then again, he seems to have a habit of using the poorest choices of words.
On a side note, I find it despicable to hear people criticize the Romney/Ryan campaign for using their bus to help ship needed supplies to areas impacted by the hurricane. If they want to help with relief, then by all means, let them use their resources to help. I mean it’s more than the talking heads at MSNBC would ever think about doing. If you feel compelled and want to help those affected by hurricane Sandy, here are a couple of links that you can use to donate monetarily:
