PRESIDENT OBOMA, WHERE ARE THE TEARS FOR THOSE YOU LEAD? by Alice Stewart

Post by Rohn on Sun Nov 11, 2012 4:37 am

The leader of the free world let his emotions flow this week, crying as he thanked staffers the day after his re-election. The tears of joy were humanizing, but it begs the question: where are the tears of heartache for those who are suffering?

Where are the tears for the 23 million Americans out of work who worry about putting food on the table, the Hurricane Sandy victims who are still without power or without a home, and where were the tears as the four flag-draped coffins returned from Benghazi?

Our leader is able to witness the country’s worst heartbreak without a tear, yet when he experiences personal victory, he weeps.

We have people crying out for jobs and a better life. The president’s answer is to redistribute the wealth and provide the poor a subsistence-level income.

We have storm victims wading through sewage on the East Coast to find the smallest possession, and our president dons his Barack O’Bomber jacket for a photo op and jets off to the campaign trail.

We have a terror attack on 9-11 in Benghazi, and our leader hops on a plane to Vegas to fill his campaign coffers.

President Obama appears stoic through America’s worst pain, yet can’t keep his composure when his own job is saved. That’s enough to make a grown man cry.

Don’t get me wrong, in this day and age of “politics ain’t beanbag,” I find it refreshing to see our elected officials show their softer side.

President George W. Bush cried during a Congressional Medal of Honor ceremony honoring Navy SEAL Petty Officer Michael Monsoor.

Now Secretary of State Hillary Clinton cried during a 2008 presidential campaign stop in New Hampshire. Secretary Clinton choked up while commenting that she didn’t want to see the country fall backwards.

And Speaker of the House John Boehner is known for crying at the drop of a hat. Yet the Speaker generally tears up when talking about the American dream.

These leaders mourn for others and the future of our country, not President Obama.

We have 23 million Americans looking for work, four deaths in a terror attack at the U.S. Consulate in Libya, and a death toll of more than one hundred as a result of Hurricane Sandy; all this and not a visible tear from our president. Yet, the Commander in Chief keeps his own job and he’s a wailing wall.

While our president gets misty-eyed over his personal milestone, I can assure you there is a trail of tears across this country. Along the campaign trail from South Carolina to California, I saw tears from selfless Americans who want our country to succeed.

There is the grandmother in North Dakota who choked up as she voiced concerns about the Obama administration’s growing debt and the burden it will place on her children.

I saw the tear-filled face of an influential conservative woman in Iowa concerned about how President Obama’s mandates will infringe on our religious liberties.

And there was the mega-church pastor in Florida, urging his congregation to vote their conservative values. You couldn’t find a dry eye in the place. The pastor illustrated his point with the story of NFL Coach Tony Dungy who ministered to a troubled teen while dealing with the loss of his own son.

Dungy talks about that “service above self” concept in his book Mentor Leader. He writes: “It’s not about me, it’s not about you, it’s about others.”

Mr. President – once you dry your eyes after celebrating your good fortune, open your eyes and take a serious look at the needs of those you lead. Because it’s not about you, it’s about others.

Alice Stewart is a Republican strategist and currently serves as a Romney and Republican National Committee surrogate. She worked as National Press Secretary for the presidential campaigns of Rick Santorum, Michele Bachmann, and Mike Huckabee. She is spokeswoman for Conservative Women for America.

WE have to lead the Charge!

Post by Cie J on Tue Nov 27, 2012 10:29 am


The days of sitting back and folding our hands in our laps and hoping our elected officials will do something on their own to fix this mess, are over.

Our civic and Christian duty it seems to me at this point in our history, must include daily vigilance, contacting our representatives, rallying our

Christian brothers and sisters to action and doing all the praying, researching, writing, speaking, blogging and teaching that we can to turn this

country around. Sounds exhausting I know. However, it is no more exhausting, I'm sure, than surviving Valley Forge or climbing up Mount Suribachi

after hours of battle or scaling the cliffs on D-Day or marching down the streets of Selma, Alabama to protest an injustice to fellow Americans or ...

etc. WE are the government and have abdicated our responsibility for far too long as a nation of free people. We are about to lose it!

Perhaps some of you on this site have been much more active and involved. I know I for one, have not done my part. But I am going to do all that I

can from here on out with the strengthening help and by the grace of God Almighty to fight this tyrannical system we have allowed to develop. It

seems very prevalent due to propaganda but we still outnumber them by a vast majority. The election results were fraudulent and very misleading.

Some people stayed home and pouted for some inexplicable reason while others must have believed the hype and thought we would win by a landslide

so neglected to cast their votes. We can not fall for the polling hype again. And we must be active in the primaries to get the candidate that best

reflects our Christian values. I'm sorry to state the obvious but I am still very disgusted with the election results and the obvious fraud and cheating

that we are not pursuing. It must be pursued and stopped! Blessings to you all and may God continue to bless this nation. Cie J.

I agree Cie J. Part of the problems we're seeing is in the past Christians pretty much stayed away from the political scene. I'm not sure when it happened, because I know when the country was first founded the Christians were very involved. I do know that many in my Grandparent's generation felt that they were not suppose to get involved, that some how the process was ungodly, at least that was my perception. By the time the Christians started waking up and realizing that our nation was falling away from God the damage had already been done.

I agree

I heard a statistic yesterday that I found quite disturbing...

When a majority of the so called "Likely Voters" go to the polls they tend to vote christian / conservative

When a majority of REGISTERED voters go to the polls they tend to vote for more government giveaways
