Sometimes don’t you just ask yourself, how did we get here, so quickly? …Oh, that’s right! Our wonderful, dictator Barack Hussein Obama. Mr. “I’ve got a pen and a phone”. Wake me when it’s over, please!
President Barack Obama may visit Hiroshima during his final visit to Japan next month, the White House indicated today.
The president would like to see the world rid of nuclear weapons, his spokesman said today, and ‘symbolically’ there’s probably ‘no more powerful illustration of that commitment than the city that contained the victims of the first use of that weapon.
If he doesn’t make the side trip it won’t be because of pressure from within the United States not to apologize for the war-ending bomb that killed 140,000 people in 1945, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said.
‘It’s not’ a factor, Earnest told reporters this afternoon as he defended the president from the type of criticism that Republicans are sure to eschew if he goes and offers some sort of apology for America’s actions during World War II.
Obama has spoken about the ‘debt of gratitude that all Americans owe to the greatest generation of Americans,’ Earnest said.
‘The president will be focused on the policy considerations, and whatever decision he makes and whatever policy decision the administration makes will be consistent with the president’s strong view about the bravery, courage and heroism of those Americans who fought and won WWII thereby securing the liberty and freedom not just of the United States but of human beings around the world.’
Earnest declined to discuss the president’s thinking on the issue while noting that the topic comes up publicly and privately every time Obama goes to Japan.
‘The president and his team will obviously consider our options here,’ he said and pledged to shed more light on those conversations once a decision has been made.
No president has visited Hiroshima, but that won’t stop Obama. Afterall, earlier this year we were honored with his visit to the Communist country, Cuba….
Aren’t you tired of the destruction of America yet? By the time this man gets out of office, we will have millions more of illegals, an historical amount of people on welfare and an economy that is ready to collapse thanks to Obamacare.
I don’t know about you, but I’m looking forward to a real leader! A leader who will abide by the laws and the Constitution, restore our economy and repeal Obamacare.
Apologize!? If ANYONE should apologize for ANYTHING….Barack Obama should apologize to “We The People” for the destruction of America during his term.
