Leftists Don’t Think the United States Has the Moral Authority to Confront the World’s Bad Guys
Liberals seem to like that we have become a joke on the world stage as thugs tear everything apart.
Check it out:
Well, President Obama just — well, what did he do? He told Putin he better let in the investigators. He better let in these international investigators, or else. He said, let ’em in there. Same thing he said on Friday. He said this is unacceptable, it’s intolerable, what happened here, and called for other nations to ratchet up sanctions against Putin.
I don’t know, folks. It’s hard not to be cynical here, but I don’t know how else to react to this. I could not, in good conscience, open this program today by saying to you, “Well, I’ll tell you what, the president of the United States really told Putin the way it’s gonna be, really sent shock waves through Putin today, demanding that Putin come clean, fess up, let all of the people in to find out everything we need to know. Get those bodies back.” He didn’t do that.
I can’t tell you that that’s what the president did. He just continued what he said on Friday and there was nothing behind whatever anybody might want to consider a threat. And I think, for those people still having trouble understanding this, you know, there’s been a lot of people over the weekend that went back — and we have it here, too, we’ll have it for you coming up — examined the way Ronaldus Magnus reacted when the Russians shot down the Korean airliner, Flight 007, contrasting that to the way Obama has reacted to this.
I think the tough thing for people to understand or accept is that Obama does not think that this really is any of our business. It wasn’t American Airlines that was shot down. It happened over in Europe and, yeah, we’ll do whatever we can to help the surviving families, but I just don’t think that President Obama considers the United States to have sufficient moral superiority or leadership to be able to tell anybody else what they should and should not do. That’s my take on it, anyway. Let’s go to the audio sound bites just to sort of halfway illustrate this.
