Obama’s Fictional Son Might Get Injured Playing Football While Our Real Sons Die Fighting His WarsSubmitted by Doug Eberhardt on Tue, 01/29/2013 - 13:47
President Obama came out recently and said if he had a son, he probably wouldn't let that son play football most likely in reference to how violent he thinks the game of football is. Jim Harbaugh, coach of the Superbowl XLVII team the San Francisco 49ers, said that he was happy about Obama's stance since it would mean "less competition" in the future for his son Jack who is 4 months old. You can watch Harbaugh's reaction to Obama's comments in the video below. (see original article for video)
In listening to Obama's comments this week, just in time for Superbowl XLVII, one has to wonder where his priorities lie. Obama talks about having concern for a son he doesn't have on the one hand, but on the other he allows the sons of many mothers and fathers to go off and get injured or killed or die committing suicide in his undeclared wars. Yes, they are now Obama's wars, even if President George W. Bush started them, and Obama, the Nobel Peace prize winning President, is taking his war show on the road to Syria and Bali.
U.S. Going to War With Syria?
There are some who believe the U.S. will soon go to war with Syria. In fact, Ron Paul during a speech on the House floor June 19th, 2012, warned us what the U.S. was up to with Syria as seen in the following video. (see original article for video)
However like every war since the WWII, this war won't be declared by Congress. The same goes for U.S. military involvement in Mali and the French forces who are involved there.
Declaring war, which is required by the Constitution in Article 1, Section 8, is one area the American people don't hold Congress accountable for. Why? Why do we allow our Congress to abandon the Constitution and not declare war in favor of killing our sons and daughters?
Wouldn't we rather have our sons play football unlike Obama's fictional son? Would Obama allow his fictional son to be a soldier? I mean, war is violent. His fictional son might get injured or even die!
But who is calling for war with Syria?
