Obama mentally unfit

Is Obama mentally unfit to be our commander in chief? You be the judge:

First he comes for the banks and health care, uses the IRS to go after critics, politicizes the Justice Department, spies on journalists, tries to curb religious freedom, slashes the military, throws open the borders, doubles the debt and nationalizes the Internet.

He lies to the public, ignores the Constitution, inflames race relations and urges Latinos to punish Republican “enemies.” He abandons our ­allies, appeases tyrants, coddles ­adversaries and uses the Crusades as an excuse for inaction as Islamist terrorists slaughter their way across the Mideast.

Now he’s coming for Israel.

The above passage is from Michael Goodwin’s NY Post article “Israel: Beware of Obama

Up until the re-election of Benjamin Netanyahu, Barack Obama had adequately kept his hatred of Israel hidden from the public’s view.

There were many signs pointing to that hatred; one was his velvet treatment of Iran, a regime intent on annihilating Israel, and another was providing access in Washington to the Muslim Brotherhood, a staunch enemy of everything Jewish. However, Obama has, in most part, been able to convince the world that his Middle East policies, which incidentally boosted terror to new heights, were implemented to help Israel, not harm her.

After all, he could argue anytime, how could he have any bad intentions towards Israel if he did not veto Congress earmarking funds for the Iron Dome missiles to protect its citizens from the Hamas onslaught? In making such argument, Obama forgets to mention that his veto would have backfired. He could not but permit Congress to assist Israel.

Today, Netanyahu’s decisive election win is unmasking Obama’s hatred of Israel and its people. No other politician around the world irks Obama like Netanyahu does and in doing so, the prime minister is peeling away Obama’s bias towards Israel like a chef peels an onion. It is as if Netanyahu is a psychiatrist tearing his patient apart in the hope he can fix his bigotry.

The result of this “I am Caesar and you are just a Gladiator” attitude of Obama towards Netanyahu is planting immense weight on the shoulders of Democrats in Congress. His latest irresponsible behavior towards Netanyahu’s re-thinking his campaign promises is giving the Democratic leadership a reason to pause.

Why, many are reasoning, is Obama becoming so personally vested in destroying our U.S. relations with the Arab countries and Israel while he seduces our worst enemies? Unmasking Obama’s hatred of U.S. allies and anything pro-western is unfolding right before our eyes.

Obama knows what the rumor mill inside the beltway is spewing. He knows that many are beginning to question his mental faculties as our commander-in-chief as he kowtows to our enemies while at the same time is intentionally harming our friends and allies. Yet, he is resisting any calls to explain what his intentions are in letting Iran run amok in the region.

Anyone who believes his aim is only to sign a non-binding agreement with Iran is a fool. In my opinion, this president has a hidden agenda the likes of which will shock a Quaker from his peace slumber.

Why does not Obama address the concerns many are voicing about the ultimate goals of his policies? Why does he not address the real reasons why he has refused to arm the Syrian opposition in 2011 to depose Assad? Why is he avoiding to answer tough questions with regard to refusing to help the Green Movement in Iran? I do not know about you, but it just makes me wonder and when one does not have the logical answers, any reasonable man would question what is Obama really up to.

Obama is allowing Iran, a nation that sponsors terror, to eventually acquire a nuclear bomb. Does that look to you like the action of a mentally fit person?

It is up to Obama to explain his policies to us, and not up to us to decipher them and along the way begin to judge his mental faculties. Is Obama mentally unfit to be our commander in chief is a question we must begin to ask. I have always believed Obama mentally unfit to be our commander-in-chief having the experience of a community organizer and mostly a silent Senator with little to show for.

In letting Iran control the White House and in exposing his bias and hatred towards Israel and its leadership, Obama is proving just how mentally unfit he is to be our president.
