Obama Years: Carter on Speed

It feels more and more like the 1970’s in America, but with a 1984 chaser.

Sen. Diane Feinstein spills classified information and tells the world that yes, we have drones based in Pakistan.

Today A few days ago, in an apparently a clearly unrelated incident, and American UN worker was kidnapped in Pakistan!

The kidnappers of an American U.N. workers seized in Pakistan have threatened to kill him within 72 hours unless more than 100 prisoners are released.

The threat was contained in a letter delivered with a grainy video of the hostage, John Solecki, to a Pakistani news agency on Friday. Solecki appears blindfolded in the short clip and appeals to the world body to act quickly to secure his release.

This kidnapping may be unrelated to Feinstein’s idiocy, but the truth is her thoughtless slip will give cover and “justification” to people who will take any excuse they can to wreck havoc and mayhem.

Echoes of Carter are getting louder and they’re not reassuring. Obama has shown the weak horse, and all of the terrorists have seen it.

The “weak horse” you may remember, was what Osama bin Laden saw in America, when she did not respond to repeated provocations from Al Qaeda, from 1993 to 2000. The “weak horse” inspired 9/11.

The weak horse says we won’t try terrorists militarily and we will remain dependent on Middle Eastern Oil, too. The weak horse says, we’ll distort history if you will only love us.

As of last weekend, Obama had already covered Jimmy Carter’s Malaise.

Now, on a much more serious note, we’re moving into American Hostages being taken by Muslim extremists.

Up next, I suppose – on warp speed – double-digit unemployment, double-digit inflation, gas lines, and then what – killer rabbits on the loose?

Snark aside, pray. I’m really serious. Pray for this nation. Pray for the diplomatic corp that will now be at more intense risk. Pray for our military. Pray that this president and these people in charge come to their damn senses. No negative prayers – there are no negatives in Christ – but pray.

Even Carter did not try to take control of the census.

Little Round Up:
They used to call Carter peeved and churlish, too…or the equivalent.
Crittenden: those who don’t study history forget when Howard Dean used to yell, “remember the enemy is George W. Bush!”
Just words…just…just…words
Congress: Voting on a complete mystery

Questioning Patriotism: Don’t even
Unimpressive: But covered on all sides and guarantted “success”. Up is down. Transparency is Opaque.
