Obama Isn’t Facing Reality

October 6, 2014

The president’s speech regarding ISIS was nothing less than Orwellian. To resolve problems, one must first confront the reality. First, to site Somalia and Yemen as an ideal outcome in a new combat strategy is frankly ludicrous based on the conditions in both of these countries. ISIS occupies hundreds of miles in two middle eastern countries. Lastly, to say that America is better positioned than any country, one just needs to drive through any city in our surrounding area, and then visit a Canadian or Asian tiger city.The facts are crime, drugs, and poverty fill our American cities, infrastructure is crumbling, and our middle class is disappearing.

Until reality is acknowledged and committed solutions are agreed upon by leaders in a diverse ideological coalition, the problems facing our country will remain unresolved, and worsen.
