ANALYSIS/OPINION

“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States…”

President Obama is a Constitutional scholar so I am sure he is aware of the duties of the chief executive of the United States in “providing for the common defense.”  Here are the articles of the document that delineate the president’s responsibilities in that area.

Article 2 requires the “United States shall guarantee to every State a republican form of government and shall protect each of them against invasion.”

Article 4 appoints the president as “Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the Militia of the several States, when called into the actual Service of the United States.”

The security of the homeland and its people is the No. 1 responsibility of the federal government. It is the duty that is talked about the most in the Constitution and outlined the clearest. The Constitution doesn’t talk about providing health care, paying mortgages, buying cellphones, or developing renewable energy. You could lump these things into ‘providing for the general welfare’ but they are not mentioned specifically over and over again like national security. Protecting citizens from Islamic terror could be lumped under ‘securing the blessings of liberty’ as well.

My point is the Constitution is very clear that protecting Americans from outside threats is the number one duty of the President of the United States of America.

Mr. Obama has failed in this duty.

I am not saying this because of one isolated, although horrible, shooting in San Bernardino. I am saying this because this is not the first terrorist attack we have had inside the United States since Obama became president. We have had many.

Everyone is aware of the difficulty of finding lone wolf radical terrorists. That is not the point. The point is how you react to a threat. President Obama has minimized the threat from Islamic terror since he came into office. He campaigned on minimizing it. He doesn’t think it is real. He can’t even say it.

For God’s sake, he just got back from Paris where 130 people were murdered by the ISLAMIC STATE and all he could talk about was global warming. I bet the cold bodies of the 14 killed in California wish they were a little warmer right now.

He’s said the Islamic State is contained. He hasn’t been serious about destroying their capability to attack this country and our allies. The White House waited almost two years before attempting to choke off the oil funds that fund their empire. The Iraqi people and many in the region think the U.S. is supporting ISIS!

Mr. Obama doesn’t think the threat is real, therefore he cannot protect the American people. Therefore he should resign, immediately.

I don’t know a lot about Joe Biden but it seems he believes in America more than our president does. His son was a military officer and served in Iraq. Maybe he gets it more than Mr. Obama. I’m willing to take my chances.

To those who say it would make the 2016 election harder for Republicans. I say, nuts! I want my children safe now! Yesterday! Another year under this man will kill many more of us I am afraid. This will not be the last time. Republicans will have to prove to America they are a better choice and get elected, so what. It shouldn’t be that hard of a challenge if they elect a leader in the primary.

The Obama administration is incompetent or willfully in denial. Neither one is good.

It’s time for President Obama to step down. Your and my life, and our children’s lives, depends on it.

What happened in California will happen again unfortunately, most likely very soon. We need a leader who understands the threat and can deal with it effectively.

That leader is not Barack Hussein Obama.
