Romney Criticizes Obama’s ‘Apology Tour’ In New Book

February 24, 2010 by  

Romney criticizes Obama's 'apology tour' in new book In Mitt Romney’s upcoming book, No Apology: The Case for American Greatness, the former Massachusetts governor blasts President Obama for continually apologizing for the United States on a global stage.

"Never before in American history has its president gone before so many foreign audiences to apologize for so many American misdeeds, both real and imagined," wrote Romney, quoted by Fox News.

The former GOP presidential candidate added that Obama’s remorseful tone often kindles anti-American fires that are burning overseas.

Romney also heavily criticizes the implementation of the Wall Street bailout, uncontrolled government spending and the "all-Democratic" stimulus package passed in early 2009.

"New expensive programs and entitlements must be off the table," he says, quoted by the news source. "If we do not bring government finances under control, our recovery will be long and slow, and we will risk another downturn precipitated by a severely weakened dollar," he added.

Many commentators believe that Romney’s book tour will set the stage for a second White House run in 2012. He plans to make a stop in 19 states, including several swing states also visited by former Alaska governor Sarah Palin on her recent book tour.

    I have heard a lot of President Obama’s statements to foreign bodies and have never ever heard him apologize for America. I have heard him state our history in factual terms, some of which we should apologize for, but he did not apologize. I also dought that it kindles anti-American feelings. I would think it has the desired effect of increasing respect for our country as few other presidents have done.

    • Robert

      Doc are you taking the coolaid intravenously??

      • Joe H.

        Robert,
        no he’s under a keg of it with a funnel!!!!

        • American Citizen

          He’s the first monkey, hear no evil.

    • Chuck1959

      Do not get on Doc’s case, he has to be a libral, there for he can not think for himself. You have to feel sorry for him. And please be thankful for Obama he has driven more people to the conservitive side than any one in histroy

    • Doc Sarvis

      From what I have heard, as an Independent, and being intellectually honest, President Obama has not appologized for the United States of America. He has presented historical facts owning up for our role in the good and the bad in the world. He is a champion for taking responsibility even if it is not what you want to hear. I admire him for that trait.

      • Jana

        Doc, No , he has not pointed out the good when he was busy apologizing. If he would have that would have at least softened the blow, but he did not.

      • http://jcompton80@windstream.net jeremy

        u dont remeber when he sent that apology to the middle east. For what we have done. Which is a sign of weakness to them. Why do we want to apologize for protecting ourself. Obama is a muslim and lied to us about it when he was campaigning. He first gave terrorists rights. Then let them go, “great idea!” Then thay came back to try to kill more americans. And he is a racist. I called last week to get a bid package on a job. The first thing they asked me was: i a women or the minority. Then after i said no thay said we dont have any landscaping in the bid. Which is because he is given tax cuts to companies that hire the minority. And if his obama care passes im going to have to pay a 40% tax on my healthcare. Now he is sending money to other countries so they can get wind-energy. But i dont blame him for our economy. It is Bill Clintons fault for starting the nafta trade agreement and fanny mae. Bush came in and warned us about it. Yet we did nothing about it. Now every body wants to blame Bush. This year I am voting for anybody that is for fair tax and less government.

        • Jana

          jeremy, very good points.

        • Joe H.

          jeremy,
          That tax is only if you don’t work with the auto workers or seiu!!!!

        • Dave

          I agree wholeheartedly!! One has only to look at his voting record, his up-bringing, and how he conducts himself to see that he is indeed Muslim. His avowed intent is to steer the ship of state into a major iceberg of debt, socialism, and global control ruled by the United Nations.

    • Harold Olsen

      All Obama’s “Apology tour” had done is make him a laughingstock around the world. I doubt that too many leaders of other countries have much respect for this moron. The President of the United States is said to be the most powerful person in the world. He presents himself in a subservient manner to the leaders of other countries as though they own him. It makes me wonder if he also addresses them as “Massah, suh.”

      • Doc Sarvis

        That sir, is a racist comment. I hope you realize that and I hope you are better than that.

        • Jana

          Obama has apologized, bowed down and embarrassed himself (and us) enough now. It is time for him to get up off of the floor, and start remembering that we still are the ones to whom the rest of the world looks to for help in times of need. Of course singlehandedly he is changing this.

    • http://www.chandostransport@eastlink.ca Graeme B

      Doc, I know that in Europe and Canada, there is a feeling of relief as GWB and Cheney really insulted the leaders of those nations. In Canada, we had the US ambassador telling Canada that they would pay dearly for not supporting the Iraq war. It is not every day that you have a country as friendly as Canada being insulted and belittled. Obama is such a welcome breath of fresh air compared to the poison that was loosed on those who disagreed with Bush and Cheney.
      Look at the venom that Cheney is spewing at Obama. He should just go and retire gracefully, he had 8 years to annoy and insult the allies of the US. He can’t help himself. This is what Europe and other allies had to endure. Obama has’nt appologized, he has just returned to what I would call normal diplomacy and it is extremely welcome.
      With Bush and Cheney as friends, who needed enemies?

      • American Citizen

        Other countries are laughing at Obama behind his back. His, “Let’s talk”, to Iran and North Korea, is just giving them more time to develop their nuclear weapons systems.

      • http://jcompton80@windstream.net jeremy

        do u remeber 9 11 it might be your family next time.after 9 11 we had no atacts untill obama came in and gave teriotos rights and set them free. We will see how u feel when they nuclear attack us. And yes it is coming.

      • Joe H.

        Graeme,
        Is that why France and Germany have come just short of calling him a fool?????

    • Jana

      Then you haven’t listened to what he said.

      • Jana

        This is for Doc.

      • Doc Sarvis

        Nobody is giving me any proof to the contrary of what I stated.

        • Jana

          jeremy just gave it to you!

          • Doc Sarvis

            No quotes were provided and if you are talking about apologies the specific words matter. There is a difference between an apology and an recitation of facts which is what, again, I state is what I hear President Obama saying to us and others.

          • Joe H.

            Doc,
            First is that short for spin Doc?? second when Obummer went to europe he apologised for the American people being “too arrogant” there dammit theres your quote!!!!

          • Doc Sarvis

            If that is a quote, I would love to know the context he said it in. Either way though, I stand by my statement that he is stating facts of history. If you don’t think we are arrogant then you have not read much of what is on this website.

          • Joe H.

            Doc S,
            you argue in circles. first you state that no quotes were given then when you are given one you compare it to the people here on this site. If Obummer had only made the statement here then you would be correct in your statement but, alas, it was made on the world stage!!!!

          • Doc Sarvis

            I was citing this site as an example. There are plenty more in the way this country has interacted on the world stage.

    • Dan

      ACTIONS SPEAK SO MUCH LOUDER THAN WORDS. HOW MANY NEW JOBS HAVE YOU SEEN? HEALTH CARE ?? GIVE ME A BREAK, CASH FOR CLUNKERS WORKED GREAT DIDN’T IT? EVER HEARD THE SAYING, BIRDS OF A FEATHER FLOCK TOGETHER.
      LIP SERVICE IS EASY, BREAK OUT THE TELLAPROMPTER, OH YA HE DOESNT LEAVE HOME WITHOUT IT.
      GOD BLESS THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

      • Doc Sarvis

        I have seen some new jobs in my company, I still have hopes for a better health care system, and yes, cash for clunkers worked out pretty well (getting gas guzzelers off the road). Leave it to President Obama to propose, successfully run, and close out when completed, a good government program.

        • Rod

          when god gave out the brains, you were absent!

          • Doc Sarvis

            Oh that was clever. Did you think of that yourself?

        • Claire

          My daughter was called back to work today–at Caterpillar.

          • jim

            Hi Claire, I’m happy for your daughter. I also hope she was part of a good sized callback. I pray everyday for the unemployed and wish your daughter good luck.

          • libertytrain

            Claire – good for her -

          • Claire

            jim & libertytrain–I know!! She was so excited!! God, she is a doll, black hair (just like her Dad used to have)and green eyes. A very pretty girl. Bubbly personality. She wears a hard hat. steel-toed boots and drives a forklift at times! She tickles me. Gosh, I am so happy!! Caterpillar has been calling back workers at kind of a slow pace but at least they are calling them back.

          • Claire

            I must remember my manners!! Thank you both for your good thoughts! I am so excited!!

          • libertytrain

            My very pretty and very petite daughter is with the 82nd Airborne currently serving in Afghanistan – I recall when she was a Captain she learned to change oil (and other truck things that I know nothing about) with the Transportation Unit she was leading at the time – during a stint in Iraq. The “girls” are not afraid to do what needs to be done when it needs to be done. Hard Hat OR Helmet.

          • Claire

            libertytrain–I am proud of your daughter too!!! We are so fortunate to have them. They are strong girls!! I think it is great your daughter knows how change oil and all those things! I appreciate your daughter’s service to America. Give her a big hug for me when you see her, and hopefully it will be soon.

          • Claire

            I am still doing the “Happy Dance.” God bless all of us and our families!!

          • libertytrain

            Claire – it will be soon, about two weeks. She’s coming here for her two week leave. We are taking care of her toddlers while she and her husband are in Afghanistan during this year. We’ve had them and their two dogs for the last 6 months and her husband will be done with his tour in June so for 4 more months. Talk about stress – two toddlers and two extra dogs are a lot of work for folks our age!And potty training skills have been put to use once again after 30 years. A good night’s sleep is something I look forward to enjoying again, come June.

          • Claire

            libertytrain–that is great she is coming home, and her husband too. You will be so happy to see her! Remember to give her a hug for me!! Toddlers–my gosh, I bet you are one busy lady. And two dogs! The dogs appreciate you too. It is good that you are taking care of the little ones. It is so important for the toddlers to have you! They need Grandma!! My grandkids are older, 21 and 24 years old. They are all grown and busy with their lives. It is just me and my husband and 8 dogs. Dang, it keeps us hopping. Bless you and your family. There is a place in Heaven for people like you.

          • Jana

            Libertytrain, it is wonderful that your daughter and son in law are serving our great country. But so are you by taking care of those grandchildren. You are a behind the scenes server LOL, but thank you for the sacrifices that you and your family are making for our great country. Hugs.

          • Joe H.

            Libertytrain,
            Give your daughter a message for me. God bless you and keep you safe. come back to your mother safe and sound!

          • libertytrain

            Claire, Jana, Joe — thanks for your kind words.

    • Rod

      (words removed for offensive content) has been soaking his head in Obama DOO DOO! I saw the video
      of him opologizing!

      • libertytrain

        good grief.

  • thefedupamerican

    Amen to that….NO MORE APOLOGY TOURS! America is the most giving, most generous country in the world. We are there with helping hands after every tragedy….and not just the government either…private citizens as well. When Obama runs around bowing and apologizing, he adds to the perception that the world’s supposed grievances are valid. Would that he loved America as much as he loves himself! http://www.thefedupamerican.com

    • Joe H.

      gee I’m sorry we attacked you, Japan, after you bombed our ships at Pearl Harbor!!! We won’t do it again!!! Not a direct quote but close enough!!! Gosh Germany we should have never attacked you, you were only bombing our closest ally back to the stone age and murdering Jews in the millions ,but we should have let you alone!!! See, i can sound just like Obummer!!!!

      • Doc Sarvis

        Wow, if that does not define Hyperbole. He has never said anything remotely “close enough” to that.

        • Joe H.

          doc,
          No different than the crap you have been spreading here!!!

          • Doc Sarvis

            I have told you exactly what I have heard from President Obama including the fact that I know I have not heard everything of course. Apparently, my truth threatens you.

          • Joe H.

          • Joe H.

            Doc,
            I was speaking about you!!! ARE you a Muslim????

          • Doc Sarvis

  • susan

    I hope Mitt will make a run for the White House. He’s the only one I can trust with the running of America. He’s run a multi-million dollar business and knows how to cut waste and make money. America has to be run as a business, not as a world-wide charity that the tax payers pay for. He just may get rid of all these Govt. hand outs to the folks who live in our Country and know they don’t have to ever work. They are like parasites, consuming us alive. Some Americans are starting to give up looking for work because they know they have to support those that don’t. The illegals will never have to pay for health care or anything, the Govt. won’t ever enforce that. The illegals need to be rounded up and sent back where they came from. I believe Mitt will do that. My husband and I worked hard raising our six kids. I use to want Grandchildren, but it’s not fair now to them to even come into the world of Obama. Because we play by the rules and some will never have to. Obama was put into office by those seeking to destroy our Country and after four years of his (Rule) America may be lost forever…..I’m so depressed………..

    • Kathy

      Susan -
      I agree wholeheartedly with you. It’s disgraceful what BO has already done and continues to try to do to this country. Honest hard work needs to encouraged, rewarded and return to this country. No more handouts! I’m sick of working myself to the bone for those who refuse to help themselves. America is a great country. We need to save what we have left of it.

    Would any of you who seem to be afraid of President Barack Obama, and had the opportunity, would you tell him to this forum? Would you say the same thing to the faces of his wife and children, how horrible a man you think he is, and how you feel that he is totally destroying America? Would you? As of today, Pres. Obama has been in office for 400 days. Surely he can’t be blamed for, what took a number of years for the country to get in it’s present state. Fact: As of December 31, 2009 the national debt was at $10,699,804,864,612.13 (over 10 Trillion dollars) before Obama was even sworn in. The facts are there, that the previous administration helped largely to get America into this mess. Take a look at some of the financial statistics from 2001 through 2008: oil $20 to $143 a barrel, US Dollar Index $120 to $70, Iraq and Afghanistan wars as of today in excess $965 Billion Dollars. Not to mention the over consumption and government waste of that era.
    But most of all…remember to love yourself and be good to each other!
    Blessing to all!

    • Americanadian

      Oops…I need to proof read my posts more efficiently. REPOST! My Apologies!

        And what is that debt now?!?!? And don’t forget the last two years the libbies were in charge!!!!

      • Phil

        You are correct…. Most of the people in rightwing America only parrott what Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh and Fox news tell them to think….most of these people don’t even know what socialism is… They just hate goverment because that’s what they’re told… And you can’t get them to admitt that President Obamas done nothing that wasn’t also done before he took office… They won’t even admitt that the very Republican leaders they support are taking money from the RECOVERY ACT that republicans claim is socialism…and of course the republican leadership don’t want to pay taxes on their multi million dollar bank accounts… They would rather the middleclass pay… Same with the healthcare bill… The republican leadership doesn’t want Americans to have the same healthcare that all in congress and the senate have…and is it socialism when republicans except it.. ?

        • Joe H.

          Phil,
          Yeah, he did nothing different than was done before he was elected!! Like the last two years before he was elected with a majority in both houses. He voted just like he is passing now and I don’t mean gas, although I’m sure he passes a lot of that, too!

        • Doug

          Phil the thrill trying to convince you what a great comrade OBAMA is. Philly please tell us what you do for a living? Govt. employee? Welfare?

        • American Citizen

          Sorry, Phil, we can think for ourselves. Glenn, Sean and Rush are able to tell the world what we are thinking. All we have to do is listen, read and watch what Obama and this Congress is doing to know it’s not good for us. That’s unlike you Libs who believe everything the MSM tell you to believe.

      • Joe H.

        Forgot to add, don,t forget Obummer not only sent more troops to Afghanistan, he called it the “necessary” war!!!!

    • susan

      One also has to remember who had control of Congress during the last two years of the Bush Administration. The Democrats! Sure the Republicans were partly to blame, but nobody can spend money and get away with it like the Democrats.

      • Phil

        Bush borrowed the money for his personal war in Iraq from China…. And as far as democrats taking power in 2006.. Why do you think the republicans were booted out?.. It wasn’t for doing a great job…same with President Obama, he was elected because the republicans were terrible….I know Fox news has you convinced that it was the democrats that drove this country into this economic ditch but most of of know how we got here… While Obamas polls aren’t what I wish they were their still a lot higher than any republican ( any)..and most Americans polled still say the recession was caused by Bush who had veto power over the democrats that took congress in 06… No Obama policys have taken effect yet.. Except the bailouts and the bailouts started while Bush was still in office… I agree Obama is spending a lot of money but he’s spending it on America… Did you oppose spending when it went to the bottomless pit in Iraq?..at least healthcare has an intended return for America… Most of the issues President Obama faces today are issues Bush just pushed down the road…I expected Presidents first year would be to try and right the ship and I knew the rightwing would use the excuse that President Obama just blames Bush.. It’s called , telling it like it is… And after Presidents Obamas term is over I’ll decide if he deserves another term…change takes time and it takes carefull thought…president Obamas polls are still much higher than any republican…. Maybe things will get better when Bushs tax cut for the top 2% are allowed to expire next year…. As much as the right hates to admit it we are still living under the lady administrations tax code and economy…. It’s not like switching on a light… Takes time to fix the mess republicans made…were still no even sure how much debt we in because the Bush administration hid so much debt and goverment waste… Like paying for strippers and hookers for Blackwater and Halliburton…. Wonder if we’ll ever find those missing billions in Iraq?…

        • Joe H.

          Phil Don’t forget phillybrand that the dems voted right along with Bush to go to war, I will state for the record Obummer didn’t but that can be explained by the fact that he is muslim also!!!

        • Joe H.

          Philly Brand,
          And how much has Obummer borrowed from China? About double what it took Bush 4 years to spend!!!

  • eddie47d

    How many of you DON’T teach your kids to apoligize and DON’T set an example of right and wrong. Our duty as parents is to watch our childrens behavior and correct past and present mistakes. Too many adults think they do no wrong and set a bad example. It’s no different with countries and patriotism. We need more Presidents when dealing with other governments who treat them with honesty and respect. Obama has brought that respect back to America and I applaud him for it. I think he knows where to draw the line when respect is not shown to our nation. He’s gotten the Pakistani Govt. to work closer with us and delt with the Somali pirates as much as we can. He knows we can’t always deal with every world problem with nuclear threats.

    • susan

      I believe obama is introducing serfdom to our country, when he has us all out of work we will all be working for him and accepting Govt. handouts.

      Last time I checked the president was NOT my father. Can you can wrap your mind around international relations? No two countries are alike. A president must be careful how he/she presents themselves and represents their country. Read some european papers, and then tell me they respect this prez.

      • Jana

        blackhat. Yes yes yes!!!

      • Joe H.

        blackhat,
        If you show any deference to the Japanese you show weakness! The same applies to the middle east! He has not accomplished a thing since he’s been in office except make our country the laughing stock of the world. The Germans have said it, the French hnave said it! what’s next, our closest allie England? Will it take that for them to see we have prostrated ourselves to the world!

        • Joe H.

          I did just LOVE it when he patted the queen mother on the back and wifey gave her a hug!!!! Deportment to the hilt!! It’s a wonder they weren’t kicked out of the country!!! You do NOT get touchy/feely with the Queen! Even I know that!!!

  • Marta

    Bush had two major catastrophes (9/11 and Katrina), as well as some minor issues to deal with while in office. Until the Dems got in the last two of the six years of the Bush administration, the economy was hanging in there considering the enormous amount of money in aid it took for us to pull through. The wars didn’t help with our financial distress – true; however, the cost is still less than the billions of dollars spent on the illegals’ healthcare, education, legal fees for criminal activities, etc. I’ll bet our economy will have a much greater chance of surviving Obama’s socialist agenda of tax, spend, and printing money policies if Mitt Romney were to become President in 2012. We are indebted to the Chinese more than we need to be. My parents fled communism and became U.S. citizens, but it took them 5 years before they could immigrate to this country. They had to know English and U.S. history, pass a test, as well as have a sponsor who guaranteed that they will not go on welfare. Blaming Bush is Obama’s cop-out. Closing the borders and deporting the illegals would cost the democrats a great amount of votes, so it is obvious why our economic issues are not resolved. It is the decent hard-working U.S. citizen that pays the price. How pathetic!

    • Doc Sarvis

      Bush had a majority in congress for half of his terms. If closing the borders and getting rid of illegals was a solution, I wonder why he didn’t get it done?

      • Jana

        Doc, I agree with you on this. I wrote and wrote to Bush about this. Deaf ears. Bush was not a Conservative, but he was better than what we have now, in my opinion.

        • Doc Sarvis

          Not in mine – by a long shot

        • Joe H.

          Jana,
          If you remember we called it scamnesty and we called, mailed, and E-mailed our reps and we stopped it!! the American way worked the way it was supposed to for once they listened! If we do this on the health care scam we can stop it also. We have to let them know their jobs are at risk!!!!

    Romney Criticizes Obama’s ‘Apology Tour’ In New Book, February 24, 2010 by Personal Liberty News Desk: Great stuff! Really, I want Fred Thompson to run for President to stop this progressive movement because of his Reagan-like demeanor, but I also like Romney because he is just what American business needs! My only fear now, is that we will not economically survive all the way until the middle of January, 2012! For more information to survive this coming collapse, please refer to internet site: icyahweh.org

    • Harold Olsen

      I voted for Thompson in the primary election of 2008 and would have voted for him if he were the Republican candidate. He’s more of a statesman than a politician. I’m not really sure how I feel about Romney, though.

      Politician = Someone who is out to get whatever he can that is best for himself.

      Statesman = Someone who is out to get whatever he can that is best for his country.

      • blackhat

        Yeah, Harold, Romney just threw his support behind McCain…

      • Doc Sarvis

        Thank goodness for Statesman-President Obama.

  • Phil

    President Obamas polls are still running between 49 and 52%…. that’s pretty good concidering… Ohh, thanks new republican Scott Brown… He voted for jobs yesterday… Ya gotta like someone that puts America over political partys…

    • Joe H.

      Phil,
      you better check the one out today or yesterday in USA today. 32% and falling!!!

      • Jana

        Hoe H, that’s what I saw too.

        • Joe H.

          Jana, thanks for the support, but please don’t call me a Hoe!!! HeHe!!

          • Jana

            Sorry about that Joe. J and H are right next to each other. Fiddle. I should have proof read first.

          • Joe H.

            Jana
            no problem, just picking on you a little no harm!!!

      • American Citizen

        The last I saw it was 32%.

  • Roger

    Really folks, we should be using facts not emotional knee-jerk reactions. For instance the Cash for Clunkers program was initiated to reduce the comsumption of gasoline and pollutants. The FACTS are nearly half of the vehicles traded in under this program were pick-up trucks that had mileage nearly the same as the new pick-up that was bought. Most of the people that took advantage of this program were people that buy a new car every couple of years anyway. People who have older cars where the change in mileage would have been considerable were less like to be able to afford a new car even with the discount. This program was a side show that did little to resolve any of our national problems. It is indicative of the lack of business knowledge in the highest levels of our current administration.

    • Raggs

      Throwing money into a fire doesn’t help matter’s either.
      In other word’s all of this nonsence of health reform to insure the folk’s that have made a choice to leech off of the working class do not deserve anything for “free” or maybe an occasional bullet.

    • American Citizen

      It shows what you get when you have youngsters in charge.

  • Rod

    Ya know, I guess I expect to much from these far left liberal puke’s!
    Then when you think about it, they wouldn’t be puke’s if they were
    not far left liberal’s!

  • Rod

    Roger, every thing Obama does is a “side show” to attempt to convince
    the American people he knows what he is talking about. Appoints another group of RADICAL FAR LEFT BIG SPENDERS to show him how to
    stop spending (tax payers) money?????

  • Rod

    All I can say is, we need to get out there and VOTE! VOTE! VOTE! and
    be sure to tell all other “AMERICAN’S” to be sure and VOTE! We are
    going to have a GREAT YEAR!

  • Barb

    Boy! Where do I begin! First to Doc! Obama’s very 1st. tour outside the USA, this SOB not only apologized but bowed and kowtowed his way through every country he went into. It was a slap in the face to all Americans and it was insulting and appalling. I have no Idea where you were at, you must have still been nursing your hangover from celebrating his Historic win since he had only been in office a few weeks when he did this atrocity the 1st. time. He did it several times over several different trips! Now to Americanadian maybe you should jump back over the border, either you are an American or a Canadian. I’m sick and tired of people who want to be both. If you want to live in America then be an American! Also Obama has spent more money in one year than 6 presidents have in the last 50 years all pretty much wasted. He was going to end “Bush’s” War in Iraq it’s still going, He escalated HIS war in Afghanistan which is basically going nowhere fast, he has put us on the fast track to bankruptcy, and turning us into a 3rd world country all in just 400 days. He tells us we need to sacrifice and spread the “wealth” and all the while he and his “Queen” bring in special chefs to cook them lunch and they go to Paris or someplace for Friday Date nights all the time and he tells us to sacrifice! So to answer your question, YES!!! I would LOVE the opportunity to tell his kids to their face just what a self-serving, demented, un-American SOB they have for a father, not to mention their idiot mother. They will find out soon enough anyway!

    • Winnie

      Barb. If you could do to Obama’s children what you say you will then be prepared for your children to take some heat as well. I would prefer that we just deal with the adults, and that is what I would say to the Doc. Being an adult is truly very hard because we must watch what we do but also what we say. I hope my fellow Americans would grow up and fix what needs to be fixed without name calling or assuming. Anyone who answers my comments will probably tell me that I love the muslims or that I am in cahoots with “obummer” and of course I will be told that I hate America and the “real Americans”.

  • Art Phillips

    TO: All U.S. Congressmen
    All U.S. Senators
    The U.S. President

    From: Art Phillips and by proxy,
    Millions of American citizens

    The reality that I am moved to write a letter with the following content reveals a truth all Americans are beginning to recognize. We are in the midst of an unraveling of the fabric that has bound us together for the past two hundred thirty three years. A fabric which supports the weight of all, we as a people, hold dear. Our Freedoms, Liberty, and Justice, just to name a few are all supported by and dependent upon the strength of this Red, White, and Blue fabric called the United States Constitution. Creating such a fabric required many different threads, each carefully selected for its ability to withstand time and stress while maintaining its strength, integrity and values. The threads had to be bound together tightly so that they could not be divided thus compromising the integrity of the fabric. Each thread of this fabric has a name, to mention a few, Honor, Duty, Loyalty, Morality, Strength, Honesty, Trust, and many more. All the threads in this fabric represent the greatest attributes of the human race, one race, with different shades of one color.
    Prior to the 2008 election, the majority of citizens of the United States of America were well on their way to creating a new race, the American race. A new race of people with only one color, the American color, and only one name, American, not Asian American, or African American, simply American. A race bound together by their hopes and dreams and care for each other. The struggle for this dream took over two hundred years and millions of lives. It is disgraceful how the actions of those running for the honor of serving in public office have set this noble achievement back many years. I ask you men and women in the congress and the senate, as well as the men who ran for president, was it worth it? Was your ambition, your pride, your need to be famous or whatever self-serving goal you were seeking worth destroying what millions of Americans gave their lives for? Do not tell me you don’t know what I am talking about. Each of you knows very well that the despicable use of race in the 2008 election was obscene and you all share the responsibility for it. The 111th legislature, as well as the 2008 presidency, will be looked upon as the blackest days in American history thus far.
    Though I have served my Country, and my family has sacrificed much for our way of life, I have failed to do my duty. I took an oath to protect the Constitution of the United States of America against all enemies, both foreign and domestic. I was not diligent in the exercise of my duty to protect our Constitution from malignant growth known as government. Congressmen, Congresswomen, Senators and President, you represent that growth. It is your blind ambition and self interest you serve rather than the American people and the Constitution you swore to protect. The actions taken by this administration and legislature amount to a direct attack on the Constitution and the rights and freedoms it guarantees. You have forgotten that it is not your place or your right to tell the people what you are going to do. It is your duty and obligation to ask the people what they want! When I say, it is your duty to ask the people, I mean the majority, not the few that simply seek to be coddled, ask those who have made and make this nation successful. This government has made too many false assumptions with regard to the reason it was elected.
    For too long I have lived under the misguided assumption that individuals elected to the highest offices in the land, individuals that took the same oath to the Constitution I did, would honor that oath. I believed that they could be trusted and things like Honor, Duty, Loyalty, and Morality were as important to them as they are to me. I made a serious error in judgment with regard to many of them. Many in the Senate and Congress do not have the capacity to possess such ideals. Just think, people who are supposed to be the guardians of our Constitution are trying to limit free speech, restrict the free exercise of religion, remove the right to own arms, just to mention a few of their attacks on the Constitution and the American people.
    What person in their right mind has the audacity, the arrogance or the ignorance to expect people to apologize for the success of their nation? The only change we need now is to remove such ingrates from office. If our country is such a horrible place to live, why do so many around the world want to come here? Why does our government want to reward criminals and provide them free medical, subsistence and free education at the expense of those who can’t afford it for their own families? People who have entered this country illegally and laugh at our laws, many of whom commit crimes in our country, are given property and rights paid for by our citizens even when these same citizens cannot afford it for themselves. If these illegal aliens want to live in a country like the United States of America then they need only to go back to their own country and pay the price Americans here have paid and build another America, the world could certainly use more.
    Americans owe the world nothing, nothing at all. This nation has always provided for the rest of the world freely and willingly. Our nation has fought and sacrificed more than any nation on earth for those in need around the world. Now some of you in Washington have the nerve to think we should apologize for our success. You are very much mistaken if you think this American feels apologetic, and don’t even think of apologizing for me!
    Our nation’s success was purchased with the hard work, sweat, tears, suffering and blood of ordinary people who possessed extraordinary will, courage and values. I am proud of this nation because of citizens who were willing to share that success along with the blood of their sons and daughters with the world. I despise any individual calling for or making an apology for the sacrifice of my brothers and sisters in arms, be they living or dead, or any citizen of our great nation. Get it clearly embedded in your conscience that the United States has nothing to apologize for! Consider this, why don’t those of you in Washington that have degraded, insulted and slandered our country, its military and many of our citizens start correcting the disastrous course you have taken by making a long overdue apology to America and her allies. Speaking of apologies, the media, those in television mainly, have betrayed their profession, their country, and themselves. What is most discouraging about the media is the fact that they know very well they have lost all credibility and trust. Some journalists even admit that they don’t report news anymore, “we make the news” one of them stated. You won’t find any honor in this profession any more. And just think, I am just a simple person, a nobody to the new Washington and the media.
    I have a great deal more to say, however, I am sure most congressmen and senators are far too superior to even acknowledge an average citizen much less read all this. To those in our government still holding to your beliefs and values, those who still honor the Constitution and believe in freedom over tyranny, I salute you, respect you, and I have your back so long as we stand. To the rest, look carefully in a mirror, you are just a person. There is nothing special about you. There are many in this country that can do your job far better than you ever will. You are only insulting the rest of us and making fools of yourselves acting as though you are any better, any smarter, or any more qualified at what you are doing than a million others are. You were born, you will age, and you will die just like every other person on this earth, why not leave behind a good memory and an unselfish legacy. No one is unaware of the mistakes they have made, each of us knows when we are doing something for the wrong reasons. I hope I can get through to at least a few of you in government before the betrayal of the American people turns to outright treason. Where is your Courage, Commitment, Honor, all those things a leader must possess?

    God Bless our great nation!

    Respectfully,
    Art Phillips and millions of other Americans

    Afterthought: What could be so valuable to a person elected to serve a nation as great as the United States that they would betray such a trust? I can’t answer that, however, we are witnessing this very thing in our government. It seems that most of those we trusted to protect our beloved Constitution have betrayed every citizen in the United States. In the past six months we have seen our Constitution, our Military, and many average citizens slandered, threatened and subjected to viscious attacks which were totally unwarrented. Our present administration and legislature is by all means and definition guilty of treason. When will one of our many Law Enforcement, Judges, Dept of Justice or courts find a little courage our soldiers have and make these trators and criminals answer. It looks as though the only ones who are going to be punished for our governments dishonor and criminal activity is US.

      Oh my gosh!!!! Art, that is absolutely beautiful! So eloquently spoken, so thoughtfully said, so insightful of how the vast majority of Americans truly feel right now! WOW, I have been praying for a hero and here you are!!! Thank you for saying how so many of us feel and saying it so well! As they say, sometimes the pen is mightier than the sword and you just proved it! Have you ever thought of running for public office? I’m serious! Thank you again, you made my whole month, I’m sobbing, but they are tears of joy!

        Barb,

        I am a simple Lawabiding Loyal American, just as you are. When I returned from the mid east, because of injuries, and found that freedoms we had been fighting for were being destroyed, well, you know the rest.

        • American Citizen

          Thank you for saying so eloquently what most of us who value our Constitution are thinking and feeling. I have had a feeling of a sense of doom ever since Obama was elected and it keeps getting stronger every day. I am praying and hoping that enough Americans are being awakened that come November those politicians in D.C. will be turned out and true Americans elected. I have never been so fearful for this country.

      thank you for sharing such a great article.

  • eddie47d

    Art Phillips reading was eloquant and well thought out and I did enjoy it. Then you come back and totally bash Obama.like that was icing on the cake. I believe Obama loves America and does show it in a different way. Unlike some presidents he does communicate alot to the American people and maybe that’s his problem. That gives us citizens too much information to gripe about. I do think his love for America is just as inspiring as your story. We can disagree on many points of his policies but his heart is all out for the American people.

    • American Citizen

      If you do research on him you would change your thinking.

    • Barb

      You have got to be kidding, right!????! How could anyone love something so much and try to destroy it all at the same time! He hates America and everything we stand for and he shows it daily.

      If you love Obummer so much, then why don’t you enlist to support HIS war effort in Afghanistan like philip did or does the thought turn your legs to gel?

        Excuse me Art Phillips, I messed up your name I meant no disrespect!!
        God bless you for your sacrifice to your country!!!

      • Winnie

        Joe H. “Obummer” and “his” war in Afcanistan? Now that I think about that, I guess it is his war because W. Bush never bothered too much with it although he started and for good reason. I enjoyed reading the letter to the congress and the present administration. Let’s not forget that it is usually the poor people who join the army to survive and they are the ones who die while the upper class people live to glorify their war and claim the United States as the greatest nation in the world. Many of our leaders are millionaires and have no idea what the average American goes through to obtain the American Dream. I would just like to ask that all Americans get their voices together as one and throw the members of congress out for they are the ones who have nice bulging pockets from the big insurance and pharmacutical companies. And cut their health care that you pay for. Let them go bankrupt trying to get a decent health care on their own.

  • Art Phillips

    Eddie47d,

    If you like Obama I do not fault you for it. I most likely like things others hate? However, if you pay close attention to Obama and what he says you can clearly him indicate how much he dislikes America and most American citizens, especially American soldiers. When he is here on TV he says one thing, when he is in other places or in a small group his true belief comes out. He is very anti American period.

    Respectfully
    Art

      Art Phillips,, SIR,,
      In honor of your comment,, I salute you with greater respect from my heart,, than I do in the presidents address to the NATION.. In every effort I have tried to hold my composer for equality to those that we elected that are running our Country.. To no avail to satisfy my mind,,I have not been able to do so..

      We as Americans have opened the door to a mindless,,and spineless group of supposedly leaders.. Our president,”and I am using the small letter p,” simply because he is definitely not representing our Country as the Oath that he took states that he should..

      He has lied to all the American people,, before he was elected,, and also now as he holds the office of the president of The United States.. I as an American,, cannot,, and will not address him as The Commander And Chief of this Great Country that we so Proudly served and Fought for as The United States Of America..

      Again,, Art Phillips,, SIR,, I Salute You On Your Service,, and as for as the Sacrifices that you say that you and your family have failed,, I to join you in the Sacrifices of the failure to our Country,,but SIR you have served your Country with great Respect,, and Honor.. Something the president of The United States cannot say or realize,, for he has not done.. I will also go so far to say that he is a disgrace to the Country that many have given their Lives for,, and shed Blood for that he would turn his back on the United States Flag in which he has done,,and proven to us so many times before.. May God Bless You,, and God Bless America!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I have noticed there are various opinions on who is to blame for this economic mess and believe the answer is both parties and us the average citizen. The initial point might have been during the Carter Administration when the rules were changed to allow affordable housing forcing banks to lower the standards on qualification. People purchased homes they could not afford and the credit card promotions followed. People bought on credit and bankruptcy followed as many lived beyond their means. Bankruptcy Court became too lenient; people knowingly abused the system and millions disappeared like magic.

    There are people whom the finger can be pointed at in both parties who had the power to stop the bleeding before it got out of hand but looked the other way. John McCain, (although I do not like his politics) did point out the problem in 2004 but was ignored by Congress. Barney Frank, Chris Dodd and Gethner, present members of Congress and the administration respectfully, have had a major responsibility in this with their financial minipulating of the banking and housing markets. Corruption exists in both parties.

    Eddie: I am not trying to disrespect your opinion but if what the people he knew in college said has any truth and the number of people he associates with have any bearing, it does make one wonder. You do know that a number of the people he has appointed to his cabinet are Socialist and one a Communist. The communist was forced to resign after the people found this out. I suspect the President knew his background. It begs the question; if he loves this country so much, why is he bringing in all these people who would rather we have a European Socialist type of government. Is this what you want?

    Art: Well said. The problems can be corrected beginning in November and continue into 2012. The majority clearly see that Congress is corrupt and broken and the administration incompetent. The voter has to take a hard look at who goes and who stays. I personally will not vote for anyone who has served more than 2 terms. They forget who they represent after that and have become beholden to lobbyists.

  • buckwheat

    whats up with you people stop playing this left right game. the us government has the worst foreign policy compared to any third world dictator. dont back any politcian unless they openly plege to return the government to folling the constitution and ending the fed. or we will be become a third world country and all your sons and daughters will be fighting to expand the us governmemts empire building.

  • Joe

    Mitt Romney, what a patriotic family he has. all of his eight? children of service age, but not one volunteer from the rich family to go and fight. Is this what my friends and their family members are overseas fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan for? So the rich can sit back and make patriotic speeches and while their family members are safe and sound? Mitt Romney never served, because why should he if he has all that money he may lose.

I will resist any and all attempts to limit those freedoms and rights by any person, association, organization, government, agency or any other entity regardless of whether they are appointed, employed, or elected. Those Freedoms and Rights include, but are not limited to, the right of religion, the right of free speech, the right of assembly, the right to own and bear arms and all rights afforded by the Constitution. These, along with all rights and freedoms, guaranteed by the Constitution are not subject to conditions or considerations of any government which seeks to dole them out as it sees fit, they belong to the American people, as does the government. I will, also, resist any attempt made to manipulate, alter, or amend these Rights and Freedoms in such a way as to lessen their degree or restrict their accessibility, in any way, by legal, law abiding American citizens regardless of how or who is attempting to do so. It is my duty as a legal, loyal, law abiding citizen of the United States of America to insist on and demand the preservation, protection and adherence to the United States Constitution by all my fellow citizens, elected officials, and courts regardless of their position, rank, or authority.
    This must be so if we are to survive as a nation.

    I AM YOUR LIBERTY
    I desperately need your help!

    I am not a Democrat or a Republican. I belong to no political party. I belong to you, the American people all. I belong to all people who are willing to pay the price life demands for freedom. No government has ever made men free; government by its very nature seeks to destroy me and my brother, freedom.
    I am LIBERTY and in America I am under attack. I am wounded and fear that I will soon perish at the hands of your United States government. You, the American people have always loved me and protected me throughout the world. Why do you abandon me now, have you lost your love of Freedom and Liberty? You have placed your trust in government; you depend on government to take care of you. Do you not understand the price your government will demand of you will be my death and the death of my brother, freedom? American, stand on your own two feet, regain your pride and self worth, tell those who are now trying to rule you rather than lead they have no rights but those you grant them.
    America if you do not rise up for me NOW I will be nothing more than a burning memory and your children will pay the price of your apathy. Most of you have never read your own Constitution, you know, that document that allowed me to exist, the document your government is in the process of abandoning.
    It is up to you, will I perish on your watch, and will your children be punished for your inaction? NO it is not easy to be free. I will be gone sooner than you think, act NOW or live the rest of your life in regret.

    I AM LIBERTY

  • Art Phillips

    Men and women of the Congress and Senate of the United States of America. Upon being elected to the position you now hold you took an oath. You each swore that you would protect and adhere to the Constitution of the United States of America. Hopefully you are all aware that the United States Constitution is the highest law of our country. No individual, regardless of position or rank or authority, is above these laws. You may have been elected to Congress or the Senate, you may even have been elected President or serve on the Supreme Court. You are not above the laws in the Constitution. Our Constitution was not created to protect the United States government. On the contrary, the United States Constitution was created to protect the citizens of the United States from their government. As much as the President elect 2008 and many in the 111th congress find this fact offensive it remains true.
    It has become apparent, vividly apparent, that many of you understood your election to mean that there was something special about you. Some of you have become so delusional that you believe you are above the laws of our Republic and superior to the citizens who elected you. You have betrayed the trust the American people placed in you as well as the Constitution you swore to protect. This attitude, now displayed by the President and more than half of those in 111th legislature, along with a perilous lust for power has generated numerous illegal and criminal acts. This administration and legislature are clearly, and without any doubt whatsoever, in violation of the Constitution of the United States of America. Not only have they violated the Constitution, they have violated the civil rights of every American citizen, and in doing so have committed treason against the United States.
    It is for this reason I call upon every Court, Law enforcement agency, the US joint Chiefs of Staff and any other authority which remains loyal to our Constitution and the American people. I call upon you to do what you and I know is the duty of every American who took the oath to protect the Constitution. America is in the grips of government which, by its own actions, has made itself illegitimate and unconstitutional. In the event that those agencies and organizations whose duty it is to carry out actions necessary to preserve and protect the Constitution fail to act. The people of this country should identify the criminal acts committed and by whom. When those individuals return to the districts where their constituents reside they should place them under citizen’s arrest. They should then be tried in a court of law under the Constitution to determine their fate. WE THE PEOPLE of the United States of America must not let this overthrow of our country continue.
