Is Obama Worse Than Benedict Arnold, Or Just Compassionate?

Is it just me, or can others smell the rotting of America and it’s presidency coming from the White House, by way of lies and deceit that permeate the air? Does the American public understand they were just used and mocked again by the usurper-in-chief?

Was it my imagination, that just days ago our illustrious so-named President heralded the words “No man left behind” when he proudly and with conviction announced that he had just traded one AWOL (Absent Without Orders) deserter, who allowed 6 precious young men who did not turn their backs on their friends and fellow soldiers to die looking for him in his walk to freedom?

Let me think this through. Four war heroes in Benghazi were not only left behind, but their pleas went unanswered. However, that was perfectly acceptable with Obama, Mrs. Hillary Clinton, and Susan Rice and all the people on the left?

Let me regress: Obama becomes President in 2008 and took office on January 20, 2009. Bergdahl walked away of his own free will on June 30, 2009. Since February 27, 2009 we’ve been following Obama’s campaign promise to close the detention center at Guantanamo Bay. That was more than five years ago now. However, Congress has made closing the prison difficult through various pieces of legislation, including bans on sending prisoners to particular countries and tough requirements for the government to meet in order to transfer detainees from the prison (even though Eric Holder tried to move court trials to the USA.)

So? What did this president do to get his way? He used the words and tradition of “No man left behind” to dishonor other heroes, and especially those of Benghazi, in order to get his Islamic friends freed. He stepped on the Congress and overreached his position of President in order to work his debauchery against other nations and America.

If you feel that the so-named president has committed treason, you need to step up and cry out and find a place to sign a petition to have this criminal charged with treason as an enemy of the state, an enemy of a foreign land, and an enemy from within the borders of America. If you do not, America is forever abandoned and shamed.

The most well known traitor in U.S. History was Benedict Arnold. In 1780, he was given command of West Point, the American fort on the Hudson River in New York (and future home of the United States Military Academy, established in 1802). Arnold contacted Sir Henry Clinton, head of the British forces, and proposed handing over West Point and its men. On September 21 of that year, Arnold met with British Major John Andre and made his traitorous pact, in which the American was to receive a large sum of money and a high position in the British army. However, the conspiracy was uncovered; and Andre was captured and killed. Arnold fled to the enemy side and went on to lead British troops in Virginia and Connecticut. He later moved to England, though he never received all of what he’d been promised by the British. The former American hero and patriot died in London, in relative obscurity, on June 14, 1801.

Ask yourself this: what is the difference between what Arnold did and what Obama has done to the world (let alone the United States of America, from which he holds the most treasured of offices)? Obama believe he is above the law and steps on anyone and everyone to attain his plan. What is his plan? Did he not state it in his book (if push comes to shove, I will stand with the Muslims)? Has he not done what he promised? And by the way, this was the only promise he ever made to the USA that he has fulfilled.
