Obama is Playing Refugee Priest when he Should be Acting as Commander-in-Chief

David Lawrence
Written by David Lawrence



Stephen Dinan in The Washington Times  writes about the GOP failing to block Obama’s refugee plans.  Obama, playing priest instead of Commander-in-Chief,  is accepting 10,000 Syrian refugees because he feels it’s our obligation to help the needy.


I have a feeling Obama is a narcissistic, selfish kind of guy but he always swirls his monastic robes and tries to seem holier than thou.


If Obama  were referring to our needy I would agree with him that we have an obligation.  But the global needy are not our responsibility when we have so much underemployment  and need the needy jobs for ourselves.


Miniature-minded, diminutive and fake-generous Harry Reid, looking like a Vegas gangster,  says “Women, children and families fleeing persecution are not the enemy.”


Tell that to the San Bernardino shooters, Tashfeen Malik and Syed Rizwan Farook, who shot and killed 14 people and injured 21 others at the Inland Regional Center.


If radical refugees are not our enemies then Obama’s allowing them into our country is our enemy.  If they do not kill us, they take our jobs.


Why are we kind to those who might be cruel?  Are we stupid or masochistic?  Or are our politicians trying to seem kind rather than rats who are scurrying around eating political crumbs to achieve offices.


If our law enforcement official think that there are gaps in our refugee program, why do we open our arms to our destruction the way Germany opens its legs to Muslim rape?
