The world needs America to be a superpower
August 14, 2014
President Obama's Secretary of Defense provided some campaign fodder for Republicans earlier this week. While our "Campaigner-in-Chief" may not have appreciated Chuck Hagel's stark assessment of the current global chaos, it was 100-percent true!
Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel told a group of Marines in San Diego, California, on Tuesday, "The world is exploding all over." The Weekly Standard reports, “(Hagel) may have delivered a line that will show up in Republican campaign ads this election cycle. ... The remark came in response to a question about the Obama administration's realignment of the military towards the Asia-Pacific theater."
The former Senator from Nebraska assured the assembled Marines that while the focus of the armed forces may be on the Pacific Rim, the U.S. will not "retreat" from threats in other parts of the world, “Great powers can't pick and choose which challenges and threats they're going to deal with. There is no power on Earth like the United States of America."
But just as Hagel was starting to sound like a Republican again, he reverted back to Obama-speak, “No country is great enough, powerful enough to deal with all these threats and challenges alone in the world today. They're too big, too complex. The world is too complicated."
But the truth is that it's NOT complicated. The world needs America to be a superpower and to use our influence to keep the likes of ISIS, Hamas, Syria, and Russia in check. The Obama administration has failed to do that. While the President shrinks in crises, our enemies grow larger and their evil goes unchecked and unchallenged.
That's why the upcoming 2014 midterm election is so crucial to the future of our nation. The only way to stop our “Campaigner-in-Chief" from accomplishing his stated goal of “fundamentally transforming the United States of America" is to make sure grassroots conservatives show up at the polls on November 4. But not only do they need to show up, your fellow Americans must vote for candidates that share our conservative values!
