Media Day in Heaven
by Stan Paregien Sr.
I have lived long enough to have found something embarrassing about almost every President of the U.S. since John F. Kennedy. After all, we know the person we elect to that high office is human and will make mistakes. We expect it and are rarely shocked.
Today, though, I am profoundly embarrassed by the apparent lack of leadership and courage by President Obama. His cowardice during the current onslaught of violence by Muslin/Islamic radicals in a dozen countries leaves our nation looking weak and indecisive. I once had high hopes for this president to bring our nation together, racially and economically, but he has not done so. And his avoidance of the recent unity parade in Paris–attended by some 40 heads of state–was the last straw for me.
I really do hope and pray he will somehow wake up and make courageous decisions, but I am already turning my attention to the election in 2016. Mr. Obama, it is way past time for a change.
