Miracle in Hanover proves that Obama doesn’t know the American people

28 Oct

“We have lost our ambition, our imagination, and our willingness to do the things that built the Golden Gate Bridge,” President Obama said at a fundraiser in San Francisco on Tuesday.

Last Sunday evening I received an amber alert message from the Hanover County, VA Sheriff’s office, about an 8 year old autistic child that had gone missing at a nearby Civil War battlefield. 

6.000 volunteers from all across the state rallied to form search parties in coordination with the Hanover Sheriff’s office.  There were so many volunteers that they had to turn some away only because they couldn’t support them.

I went out on Wednesday and this was some grueling territory, with lots of elevation changes, downed trees of all sizes, bulldozed piles of stumps, creeks to ford.  Frankly, it was brutal, but men and women, young and old of all races forged on through this treacherous terrain.

It was announced this afternoon that the youngster was found alive, 5 days later.

So, this president may think he knows about the ambition of the American people and considering the kinds of people he associates himself with, I understand why he has this impression.

But he couldn’t be more wrong and the thousands of volunteers that helped to produce this successful outcome are a testament to who the real American people are.

Congratulations to the Hanover Sheriff’s office and all of the other emergency personnel, the military and all of the volunteers.

    Great job making this heartbreaking trial simply a vehicle for your political agenda. I mean, SHAME ON YOU for making this heartbreaking trial simply a vehicle for your political agenda.

      I’m admittedly an emotional guy and maybe I overreached a bit, but the contrast between this president’s public defeatism this week and the derision of the American people lies in stark contrast with who the American people really are. That you don’t recognize that is of no surprise to me.

      How you feel about my emotional outburst is of no concern to me. How this president fails to recognize the goodness of the American people is merely a confirmation of his failed leadership and of your blind, sycophantic embrace of a president that probably hates you.

    The sad fact is that Barack Obama had an almost unprecedented opportunity to lead the people of this country, and instead he has taken every opportunity to attack and divide those who elected him to reaffirm our enduring spirit; to choose our better history; to carry forward that precious gift, that noble idea, passed on from generation to generation: the God-given promise that all are equal, all are free, and all deserve a chance to pursue their full measure of happiness.The efforts of thousands of volunteers in Hanover County, Virginia USA while exceptional is not unusual. Americans have a long tradition of ambitiously answering the call of their fellow Americans in need. Quite frankly, our president is telling us that we have lost our ambition, our imagination, and our willingness to do the things, is where the real shame lies!

    in what fantasy world do you live in that you believe there’s a connection between the two events you’re trying to connect? you’re insane.

      That this miserable excuse for a president lamented the lack of spirit of the American people during the very same week where the American spirit soared to a victory of such an inspirational proportion is how I connect the events. That you cannot make the connection tells us more about you than it does about me.

      That this weenie boy president is a failure and wishes for America to wallow in his failure is no excuse for us to accept it.
