Congress and in particular the Republicans have been extremely vocal about President Obama's foreign policy and his handling of ISIS. ISIS is most likely the most overwhelming threat to world peace since the Nazi threat of WWII. It is a cancer that is growing and spreading faster than an incurable lung cancer. Their perverted atrocities exhibited openly should have served notice on the world that nothing short of annihilation of the sect will stop their spread. Country after country will feel their presence unless the world comes together to wipe them from the face of the earth.
The Republicans have said that President Obama has done little or nothing to stop them, but recently the President went to Congress to ask for the authority to send troops to fight ISIS and help protect our allies. The Republicans did nothing except to say that such action would give President Obama too much power. The Republicans chose not to fund Homeland Security unless the bill also took away funding for ObamaCare. Quite simply they are willing to endanger the security of the United States and the world because politics and their dislike of the President are more insanely important to them.
With all of this said, I have come to the conclusion that the Republican stance is not just about politics, but rather the prejudice that President Obama is black. He just doesn't fit into the "good ole boys" standard of being white. Not all of the President's ideas are good, but most have merit and should give Congress a foundation on which to get something done. Instead Congress chooses to attack and dismiss anything that the President does or says.
President Obama's plan for limiting Iran's capability for nuclear development is logical and gives us a means to enter the country and inspect all nuclear facilities to prevent the development of nuclear arms. Not only has congress belittled continuing negotiations with Iran, but has even bypassed the President by bringing the hawkish Israel Prime Minister to speak before Congress. Once again it is the Republican leadership that ignores a black President to demonstrate their bigotry. I am ashamed that our elected senators and representatives demonstrate to the world that discrimination is not dead in the United States of America.
