Barack Obama, Leading from Behind … Obama Changes Schedule to Visit Louisiana, Guilted into It By Romney’s Visit to Gulf Coast to Tour Hurricane Isaac Damage



Sorry, Barack Obama is not a President, he is not a Commander in Chief, he is an empty suit, elected on the false promise of “Hope & Change” and would rather campaign and fund raise as opposed to doing his job. It has been said over and over that Barack Obama does not lead, he follows. Obama, the President of the United States leads from behind.During this weeks RNC Convention, former Secretary of State Condi Rice said in a tremendous speech, “we cannot lead from behind”. Guess who she was referring to?

And I know too that there is weariness – a sense that we have carried these burdens long enough. But if we are not inspired to lead again, one of two things will happen – no one will lead and that will foster chaos — or others who do not share our values will fill the vacuum. My fellow Americans, we do not have a choice. We cannot be reluctant to lead – and one cannot lead from behind.

Yesterday, we reported that following the Republican National Convention, Mitt Romney, the GOP Presidential nominee, adjusted his campaign schedule and decided to tour Louisiana and the Hurricane Isaac storm damaged areas and meet with the affected people. Romney said, “I’m here to learn and obviously to draw some attention to what’s going on here”. Romney would do this along side Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal. So it begs the question, where is Obama? Many on the LEFT whined and complained that the GOP should cancel their convention in Tampa, FL because of Hurricane Isaac. Instead, the GOP delayed the convention by an day and managed to push 4 days of activities into 3. What did Obama do? Well he continued to campaign as usual. The GOP convention was three years in the planning, Obama’s campaigning and fundraising, not so much. Barack Obama was business as usual and went to his campaign stops, but  Obama Says He Discussed Hurricane Isaac by Phone—From Plane. That’s mighty big of you. This coming from the “Hypocrite in Chief who criticized GWB for not visiting fast enough the Gulf Coast after Hurricane Katrina hit.

Some one needs to explain to me, better yet explain to the affected Hurricane Isaac individuals of the Gulf Coast, how in the hell the President of the United States did not visit the devastated areas of Louisiana before the GOP nominee? Mitt Romney changes his schedule to show his concern and visit with those who were affected by Isaac before Obama? Exactly which one is the President? We all know who should and will be President, but this is disgraceful.Talk about your Obama, leading from behind.

President Barack Obama was today forced to announce he will fly to storm-hit Louisiana on Monday – hours after Mitt Romney beat him to the punch by deciding to head there this afternoon.

After it emerged that Obama was still taking time to fit in a campaign stop in Cleveland, Ohio, before checking out how clean-up operations are proceeding in the Bayou state, the Obama campaign abruptly cancelled that event, though he will still hold a rally in Toledo, Ohio before heading south.

But the Republican presidential candidate touched down in the Hurricane ravaged state this afternoon – a full three days before Obama – touring the flooded areas around Lafitte and showing his support for local residents.

So Obama had to be guilted by a Mitt Romney visit to Louisiana in order to schedule a visit himself? Because we all know what is most important to Barack Obama, campaigning and fundraising. But as reported at Hot Air, Obama’s mouth piece says they were visiting Louisiana all along on Monday. Sure he was, that’s why Obama had to adjust his schedule and cancel events in order to make the visit happen.

He was planning to visit on Monday all along, Jay Carney assured the press today, just, er, as soon as his campaign event in Ohio was over. Now the event is canceled and he’ll fly to Louisiana earlier. This is the same guy who spent the day that Isaac was pounding Louisiana out on the trail in Iowa, with a short break in the afternoon for a jaunty chat session on Reddit.

This is exactly what is meant by Obama’s leading from behind. This is an embarrassment and shows us the true character of both men. Romney, concerned and caring … Obama, forced to care because he was goaded into it. To the folks of News Orleans and the Gulf Coast, you can thank your lucky stars that Obama was not President when Katrina hit.

A question to American voters, which candidate cares about you? You have one, Romney, who purposely changed his schedule so to meet with those affected after a hurricane, you have another, Obama, who had to have his arm twisted to do so that he did not look like a complete uncaring, unsympathetic individual.

      There is nothing presidential about Barack Obama and there is nothing American about him! He cares nothing about this country and nothing about the American people. I don’t know if S.M. will print this but America has to wake up to the fact that Barack is a Communist. His grandparents were communists – his mentor from the age of 10, Frank Marshall Davis, was a communist – David Axelrod was raised by communist parents – Valerie Jarrett (senior advisor in the W.H.) was married to a communist – Van Jones the administrations “green” czar is a communist (and hasn’t really resigned, he’s still there behind the scenes). Why are we handing this country to him knowing he wants to destroy it???
      SM: paula, we have posted many times that Obama is a socialist. And yes I would say Communist because he does not believe in everyone sharing the wealth. In Communism there is an upper class who shares nothing, that is only for the peasants.

      (Toung in cheek) It is GWB’s fault O is just doing what he learnded from W, don’t you know. (toung out of cheek)

      Thank you for responding. I must tell you I am very scared. I never realized how thoroughly infiltrated our country has become – where was my head?? But now it can’t be denied or discredited any longer. We are in grave danger and I fear for my grandchildren. I want them to live in the America that I grew up in – not perfect but so much better than anywhere else. My grown children, who are all very fine, honorable people don’t see this as clearly as I do and that’s what scares me because our nation’s future is up to them. I pray to God that he will continue to bless America. With all of our faults Americans are still very good and generous people.

      W0W very good article,people are wakeing up, I hope its not to late. I have read that O has a company that is not in the USA, that will count the votes. They gave him money for his election and now will count our votes. Guess whats going to happen…We need to call our congress to get this stopped now before its to late.

      Imagine, a Behind leading from behind!

      Regarding the ‘foreign entity’ that is rumored to be
      counting the votes in an American contest, the reason
      the ‘polls’ are claimed to be so close (really?) could
      be to justify a so called ‘photo finish’ in an otherwise
      landslide victory easily skewed by that ‘foreign entity’.
      Voting needs verification by precincts if not individual
      voters. Without photo ID, impostors will have an easy
      time of it as well.

      I never knew that “FORWARD” is a communist expression! It’s the one word theme Obama is using for his campaign. Google it.

    8. rightknight on September 2nd, 2012 9:16 am

      Exactly where is Barry-Come-Lately on each occasion
      when his presence and/or ‘leadership’ is normally required
      by his sworn pledge?

      In 2008 John McCain would not touch the issue of Barack Obama’s past Marxist/ Communist/ Socialist associations and … neither will Mitt Romney in 2012.

      McCain in 2008 stated at a town hall meeting that Obama was a decent guy who should not be feared if he were elected. Akin to McCain in 2008 … Romney in 2012 refuses to expose Obama’s 20 year relationship with a church that furthers James Cone’s Marxist Black Theology from the pulpit.

      Then there is the silence from Mitt Romney encompassing those in high WH positions who embrace Barack like-minded ideologies.

      Something is so wrong with this picture. Americans who do not get it … must be informed prior to casting that precious ballot.

      Allen West says it how it is.

      Allen West Explains His Communist Comment

    12. Tamikosmom on September 2nd, 2012 11:36 am

      If the great deception that swept a Marxist who ran under the Democrat Party banner to victory in 2008 is not exposed from the Republican platform … could Ronald Reagan’s words again become a reality in 2012. The enemy needs to be CLEARLY identified so every American comprehends.


      Ronald Reagan – 40th President of the USA

      “Back in 1927, an American socialist, Norman Thomas, six times candidate for President on the Socialist Party ticket, said that the American people would never vote for socialism but he said under the name of liberalism the American people would adopt every fragment of the socialist program.”

      They sure are trying to destroy Allen West!

    14. A Texas Grandfather on September 2nd, 2012 8:32 pm

      This is just one step the Romney/Ryan campaign has taken in an effort to show the American people how a real leader behaves. There will be more and I predict that each time Obama will be caught not leading.

      The Romney/Ryan team appears to believe in service to the people while Obama/Biden stumble around behaving like teenagers rather than adults.

      Conservative Allen West is Marxist/Islamic appeasing Barack Obama’s worst nightmare … far greater than John McCain in 2008 and Mitt Romney in 2012.

      Unlike McCain and Romney … West CLEARLY addresses issues other than the economy … issues that threaten the very existence of a free America … issues encompassing the status of “illegal” immigrants … border security … the furthering of an Islamic agenda from within and without … foreign policies … the Marxist/Islamic appeasing ideologies embraced by the current President of the United States as well as his extreme abortion position.

      Sarah Palin refers to the Republican unchallenging strategy on issues other than the economy as “A One Sided Ceasefire”.
