NY-9 and What Was Obama Thinking?
Where to start today? So many things.
Well, as a Republican, one can’t help but be giddy over a Republican winning Anthony Weiner’s old seat in NY-9. A staunchly Democrat area, heavily populated by Orthodox Jews, sent a Republican Catholic to represent them in what is considered to be a referendum of Obama’s handling of Israel. It didn’t help that Orthodox Jews, like Catholics, believe in traditional marriage and weren’t too happy about the Democrat’s support of gay marriage.
What a strange time we live in.
Of course, Many may think a lot of it had to do with being so sickened by Weiner’s behavior they wanted to get as far away from that as possible.
Republicans also won in a another special election in Nevada. This does not bode well for Obama. Obama’s approval ratings remained low after his jobs speech, and his new internet site “AttackWatch” (along with a twitter feed) is being roundly mocked around the internet.
Like with so many things regarding Pres. Obama, I can’t help saying to myself, “What was he thinking?” Did he really think setting up a site where the President of the United States urges his supporters to report dissenters would fly?? It smacks of Big Brother.
In another “What was he thinking?” file, charitable groups are up in arms about his jobs bill that includes eliminating tax deductions for charity.
These things seem minor in comparison to what is going on in the Middle East though. I’ve been concerned about this for awhile. But Newt wrote a piece today that outlines why we should be concerned, and the scary fact that Pres. Obama doesn’t seem to be engaged or prepared for what may happen.
