You see what happens when you go bankrupt?
Greece is pressing its European Union partners to make last-minute concessions over a forthcoming EU embargo on Iranian oil, complicating the bloc’s efforts to unveil a sweeping package of sanctions against Tehran on Monday. <source>
That’s right, desperate and bankrupt Greek socialists are apparently so desperate that they now are asking the EU to go easier on Iran, all for access to Iranian oil supplies.
Most of the civilized world is urgently trying to curtail Iranian efforts towards building nuclear weapons, and yet Greece is so overextended and dependent on foreign oil that it would attempt to fracture the Western alliance.
Greece argues it is in a particularly vulnerable position. Iran supplies crude to Greece on highly favourable terms that would be difficult to match elsewhere.
“A particularly vulnerable position” that makes a Western nation — one that refers to itself as the country that lit the light for the world in ancient times — become the agent of the Hitler-like regime of Iran.
Is there any doubt that Barack Obama wishes to drive America into the same desperate ditch that Greece finds itself in? What’s that Liberals, you think I’m engaging in hyperbole? No, I am not, and as always will argue the case on the merits. All you need to do is look at the man’s actions.
Last week he rejected the Canada-Texas oil pipeline, an act that weakens the American energy industry and increases our dependence on foreign oil producers such as Venezuela and the Middle East.
In a politically explosive decision, President Barack Obama on Wednesday rejected plans for a massive oil pipeline through the heart of the United States <source>
Newt Gingrich had this to say about the decision, and you have to love the plain, tough talk:
“What Obama has done is kill jobs, weaken American security and drive Canada into the arms of China out of just sheer stupidity.” <source>
Quotes like this one go a long way in explaining why Newt is still in the race for the nomination.
And let’s not forget the central dagger in America’s heart, held firmly by mr. Obama: the national debt, now over $15 trillion in a $14 trillion economy.
The United States’ debt on Wednesday exceeded $15 trillion <source>
When the Manchurian took office, the national debt was just over $10 trillion, meaning that this man, this Impostor, this occupier, has increased it by nearly 50% in just three years.
So he runs up the national debt and makes repeated attempts to break the back of the American oil and gas industries, all while destroying American health care, rewarding Wall Street criminals with tax-payer funded bonuses, and failing to pass financial reform. A reasonable person reviewing this list of actions can only conclude that he has a master plan to destroy the United States. What other explanation could there be?
And the Democratic party doesn’t challenge him for the nomination?
