Why is President Obama wasting time on Fox News? Are there no other pressing matters making headlines?
What about Afghanistan? Obama is struggling over Afghanistan: No one can decide exactly just what our mission is or should be.
Here’s what we should do:
The President should call into the Oval Office the joint chiefs, the head of National Intelligence and the director of Central Intelligence, the secretary of defense and Gens. Petraeus and McChrystal.
He should tell them that we are going to devote every resource to killing Osama bin Laden. Period.
Nothing else matters. If we have to go into Pakistan to get him, then we do it!
This was why we went to Afghanistan originally, and the American people want to know why, after eight years, we have failed to do what we said we would do.
This single action will decapitate al-Qaida and render it a weakened, disorganized entity that will then no longer be a threat to us.
There is no other leader who can rally that disparate group of killers. And we are not going to stand for a man who murdered almost 3,000 people to taunt us in audio and video tapes — more than eight years after the 9/11 attacks.
And then we should pack up and leave.
We are not there to build schools or to stop their narcotics trade or to buck up an inherently corrupt society and a thoroughly crooked regime.
We are not the world’s policeman. And we can’t afford to try to build another country when our own is in such disarray.
We should seek justice for the murders of 9/11.
If the president stuck to this tactic, instead of paying lip service to it, we would succeed. That is the one mission Americans can unite behind.
Instead, the White House has declared war on Fox News — with more passion than their commitment to get bin Laden.
What’s the point?
Sure, the liberal base hates Fox, but Obama has those voters anyway.
Why not go on Fox as much as possible and try to woo and schmooze and seduce as much of that audience as possible?
Supposedly Obama believes he can win over anyone he talks to. That is why he wants to talk to Iran and Hugo Chavez and the North Koreans. But he won’t talk to the Americans who watch Fox? Something is wrong here.
Obama is taking the Fox jabs way too seriously. But one thing is for sure — Obama will regret declaring war on Fox. Conservatives will only unite in opposition.
