Reuters – A third of Republicans believe President Barack Obama poses an imminent threat to the United States, outranking concerns about Russian President Vladimir Putin and Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

A Reuters/Ipsos online poll this month asked 2,809 Americans to rate how much of a threat a list of countries, organizations and individuals posed to the United States on a scale of 1 to 5, with one being no threat and 5 being an imminent threat.

    The poll reveals something more important than what it states. It demonstrates how ignorant the American public is.

    Americans rank Iran lower than Assad because they are unaware that Iran is the sponsor of Assad and that Iran is responsible for most of the existential terror they fear. They are not understanding the proxy wars that Iran is undertaking to undermine the US and its allies.

    Obama? What are people complaining about?

    Americans elected him to the highest office where he would play a leadership role on a global scale of which he was absolutely unprepared and unskilled for. He has zero comprehension of history. He is surrounded by Jimmy Carter, Brezinski, Reverend Wright, and an array of other inferior democrats. If Obama’s presidency wasn’t a disaster, it would be a miracle.

    Unfortunately, what are the choices for the future of America: Ted Cruz? Another Bush? Reactionary Republicans who won’t serve food to a gay person? Republicans are spouting the same beliefs as Iran.

    Republicans and their “Freedom to be a bigot law.” Does that mean Sharia law should also be allowed? So a person of Islamic faith can kill a woman in the US because it is part of their faith to do so? Where does this end? Going down this road challenges the secular legal system. It’s nothing short of madness. And who signed off initially, Bill Clinton!! So how brilliant is he?

    The sad news, is that the US is not producing leaders or statesmen and stateswomen. It is producing politicians who do not revere the Constitution, they revere power and money. And guess what? Obama is right where the money is and he is a bigot against whites, an anti-semite, and he is arrogant and pompous, and sits high on a pedestal built on meaningless words and calculated arguments designed not for the good humankind, rather to support his self-aggrandizement.

    The disappointment with Obama is not that he is a poor leader. There have been plenty of those; it’s that his campaign speeches were filled with such hope and change and anticipation that he was better than the rest. But there was no change. Now there is no hope. He betrayed the very dream he made people believe in.

    That’s the sad reality of Obama: he’s just another run of the mill politician who happens to be partially black. But he is dangerous because he is vacuous. He is making bad if not irrevocable decisions that are weakening the US and its allies.

    Obama seemingly has no love of country to guide him like Netanyahu. Netanyahu is the real deal. A fearless, committed leader, who loves his country heart and soul. There is no ambiguity with Netanyahu. Obama zig zags through policy as if he is playing basketball. No one knows what side he is on or who the US will or will not support. He has no foreign policy, other than destroying Israel. That’s the one thing he has committed himself to in 6 years. Eradicating Israel.

    And Obama’s Christian? Really?

    Doesn’t he know the Jews and Christians emerged from one people and one faith? Jesus would have wanted his own people destroyed? Jesus would have wanted his homeland destroyed? Obama, I think under the cover of your Christian prayer book, it might be labeled, Koran.
