DEAR EDITOR: Re: Maria Acevedo letter to editor, “Price not living up to higher standards like pastor should,” Tuesday’s MDJ

I think a day is not wasted if you learn something, so congratulations to Ms. Acevedo for picking up a new word from Dr. Price.

I agree that Mr. Obama is weak and projects weakness. I think a lot of the media who helped him into office, like Barbara Walters expecting a new “Messiah” or the more grounded liberal media satisfied he was not related to Bush, are admitting that now. If only he was just weak.

I don’t know that you can say Russia took Crimea because we have a weak president, but they were certainly not deterred by him. It is interesting that Obama “showed” Putin by sending prominent homosexuals to represent America at the Olympics, and Putin “showed” Obama by scarfing up several thousand square miles of territory.

Way back in 2009, in Obama’s first big foreign policy exploit, we had the Obama/Clinton Russian “Reset.” Then in 2012, Obama was caught on a live mike groveling, in my opinion, before the outgoing Russian president, saying, “Give me space and I can be more flexible for Vladimir (Putin).”

How does that look to Ms. Acevedo (and any potential adversary or ally)?

There is no military option, and I don’t think Dr. Price suggested differently. Remember the red line Mr. Obama said he didn’t draw in Syria? We are supposed to be backing the opposition there, and Assad is wiping them out handily.

Remember Obama taking a selfie with the lady leader of Denmark at the Mandela funeral?

Such gravitas.

Steve I think you are a traitor to our country. Any real patriotic American would support our President and not try to undermine our leader in the face of this tyrant. Your mischaracterization of the Presidents actions and your warmongering rhetoric are what a traitor does when he acts against the best interests of the United States. I'm sure it makes you feel good as you proudly put down our leader but to most of the us you are a fool and a turncoat.

The fool is Obama and no amount of pandering will prop him up any longer.

"There is no military option,"

Then what else have you got? Without a military option, you cannot threaten one and maintain credibility.
why not

Do you think the Russian's were deterred by Bush's projected weakness when they invaded Georgia in 2008? We are supposed to be backing the opposition in Syria! Says who, nobody knows who they are! They probably hate America more than they hate Assad. Sure they will take our weapons, then use them against us, just like Bin Ladin. Obama's selfie was at Mandela's public memorial service, his funeral was in Qunu, South Africa which Obama did not attend, sorry.

Wrong, the Mandela funeral is what Oabam attened. The burial was in South Africa.

But whether Obama was "playing footisie" with the woman, in front of his wife, at a funeral or a memorial, is quite beside the point, isn't it.
