A billboard that first appeared in Indiana is now showing up in Texas. Featuring two camouflage-covered soldiers with guns, it reads:
“The SEALS removed one threat to America. Remove the other in November.”
The comparison being made to Osama bin Laden and President Obama might seem over the top to some, but it might really just be unfairly unflattering to the former, not the latter. After all, Osama bin Laden couldn’t keep the United States down for very long, not with the U.S.S. Cole bombing in 1999 and not with the 9/11 attacks in 2001.
But then there’s President Obama, who is dismantling our way of life piece by piece.
Our still somewhat free market is being ripped apart through crony capitalist deals cleverly (or not so cleverly) concealed in bailouts and federal grants.
Our economy is being continually repressed by rules, regulations and the threat of more to come.
Our superior health care system is being thrown out in favor of something that leads to shortages, harried and uncaring medical personnel, and prolonged wait lines that extend for months instead of yards.
All the while, our people are being told to fight amongst each other, demanding what we didn’t earn and reviling anybody who has a different opinion.
It’s a nonstop barrage from President Obama and his team, whereas Osama bin Laden was only able to strike once or twice a year at best. The foreign terrorist could only send the economy into a sinkhole for a short while after bringing down the Twin Towers, but our foolishly elected leader has kept us depressed for three and a half years now.
That’s why the billboard isn’t nearly as over the top as it might first appear.
Not even close.
