Weekly Wrap-Up

President Obama in his role of Commander-in-Chief is letting our brave Armed Forces down by allowing this to happen.   The ethical and moral responsibility of the Commander-in-Chief is to protect our Armed Forces and to make certain they have all of the necessary equipment for them to protect themselves.  How many dedicated young men and women making tremendous personal sacrifices will be harmed before President Obama responds to the urgent plea approved by the Joint Chiefs of Staff in January?  While this incident is publicized, we Americans, have to ask how many other problems are out there that we are not aware of?  

Defense Secretary Leon Panetta says Libya attack was pre-planned by terrorists, yet President Obama still cannot admit that it was a terrorist attack; he can hardly say the word terrorist, other than when he claims he made us safer by ordering Osama bin Laden’s death.  Osama is dead (thanks to the Navy Seals’ bravery), but  al- Qaida survives as evidenced by the murder of Ambassador Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods on September 11, 2012.  The US Senate Democrats and the President may list OBL’s death as a major accomplishment in ending al-Qaida’s strength, but the families of those who are still fighting al-Qaida may differ with that assessment. 

Obama’s foreign policy is in shambles and the economy continues to stumble, unable to create enough jobs for people to get back to work.  Even with those who have jobs, their actual paycheck has declined, incomes have fallen an average of $3,040 during the recovery.  Unfortunately, the purchasing power will fall even more when inflation begins and there is no doubt that inflation is just around the corner and the possibility of another recession is looming

Larry Kudlow has some good advice for Mitt Romney and if followed with give Americans a reason to believe all is not gloom and doom. 

Everything changes in moments in today’s lightning speed world, and some people are already voting for President.    With the way things change so rapidly and the fact that we are more aware of what happens so quickly, do you think it is a good idea to vote early.  Let us know in our weekly poll. 
The world is in turmoil and things are not much different in Albany as the Vito Lopez scandal is still in the news. 

Hydrofrackng will take another hit in the latest Matt Damon movie, Promised Land, which is financed in part by the oil-rich United Arab Emirates. 

The one very bright note this week was US Senate candidate Wendy Long addressing a crowded room last night at our 2012 Fall Reception.  We will have the video early next week, meanwhile you can watch a video from American Votes taped on September 20.
