Selfish Selfies


President Obama has checked out. Instead of acting like a true leader, he takes selfies, plays golf, campaigns, and goes to fundraisers. Our country deserves better.

Today the world is on fire, especially the Middle East. This is what happens when America has a weak, disengaged, unrealistic president.

Radical Islam is spreading worldwide. Incredibly, Obama won’t name it, (radical Islam), won’t define it (driven by ideology), and won’t develop a plan to defeat it.

It is only a matter of time before America is attacked again. When it happens, will our president take a selfie, call it workforce violence, or blame America?

Is Barack Obama looking out for America? If not, we must demand a change.
