The only thing we have is fear to force you into giving up your liberties.
Replace FDR with Barack "ban the bomb" Obama and therewould not have been a Manhattan Project to build the atomic bomb which ended World War II; and following the the war the world would have plunged into a third devastating global war between the US led Free World and the Soviet led Communist World-which the Reds may have won ending in an oppressive, brutal, one world totalitarian Communist state run out of Moscow. Or following the Communist victory over the West there would likely have been a Sino-Soviet War between China and Russia for control of the Communist world order with millions more dying. Despite his failed New Deal and terrible domestic policies thank God we had an FDR and not a Barack Obama for our 32nd president (see).
The buck stops with thee not with me.
Replace Harry Truman with Barack Obama and Hiroshima and Nagasaki would not have been nuked; and America would have been forced to invade Japan adding one million bodies to the 60 million dead-including the slaughter of 300,000 POWs held in prison camps around the Japanese Empire*.
*The Japanese threatened to kill all POWS if their country was invaded. By itself that would have exceeded the death toll of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings.
Moreover, if Obama (who blames America and the West for the Cold War) was our 33rd president it's unlikely there'd be a Truman Doctrine to contain Communist aggression and expansionism; and a free, prosperous, democratic South Korea would not exist today because Obama would never have sent US troops to the Korean Peninsula to protect it from the Communist North.
Ask what your government can do for you...not what you can do for yourself and your country.
Replace John Kennedy with Barack Obama and the horrors of Communist rule would have swept over Indochina and South East Asia with Laos, Cambodia, Thailand, Burma, Malaysia and Indonesia falling like dominoes and going Red*-with millions more dying from starvation, disease and war than were killed in the aftermath of the Vietnam War when US forces left the region**.
*The Vietnam War began in 1961 with Kennedy's policy to contain North Vietnamese aggression.
**North Vietnam lost one million soldiers in its war with the US. A greatly weakened.North Vietnamese army saved Indochina from Ho Chi Minh's regional ambitions.
Moreover, if Obama was our 35th president US cities might still be under the threat of nuclear attack from Castro's Cuba as it is unlikely that Obama would have chanced having a war with the Soviets by confronting them over their installation of missiles. Those who said that Obama would be the "new (manly) JFK" were sorely mistaken.
It's mourning in America.
Replace Ronald Reagan with the radically left anti-anti-Communist Barack Obama and he would not have found the courage and good sense to do the Gipper's history-changing walk out on Gorbachev at Reykjavik*. Instead, this pathological appeaser would have made concession after concession after for peace making Gorbachev triumphant and guaranteeing the continued existence of the Soviet State. Indeed, it is not inconceivable that had Obama been our 40th president the Evil Empire might still be standing more menacing and threatening than ever. Better we have Putin's authoritarian nationalist state for an adversary than totalitarian Communist Russia striving for world domination.
*According to Gorbachev Reagan's "rude" act at Reykjavik opened his eyes and made him realize that "a new world was possible." And that spelled the end of a world with the Soviet Union in it.
I'm the one who'll create a kinder, gentler America. But thanks for the idea.
Replace George H. W. Bush with Barack Obama and there would not have been a Gulf War; and Saddam Hussein would have likely achieved his diabolical dream of becoming the Joseph Stalin** of the Middle East annexing Kuwait, developing nuclear weapons*, and most probably invading and annexing Saudi Arabia...threatening its oil fields with nuclear destruction if anyone dared to stop him.
*After the Gulf War US weapons inspector David Kay uncovered a clandestine nuclear weapons program in Iraq.
** Stalin was Saddam's socialist model for governing Iraq.
Republicans, Fox, Tea Party = the real Axis of Evil.
Replace George W. Bush with the dithering, indecisive Barack Obama and it would have taken several 9/11 mass murder attacks before he ordered the invasion of Afghanistan to topple the Taliban and destroy al Qaida's terror bases. Moreover, in Iraq Saddam Hussein and his Baath Party would still be in power slaughtering tens and thousands of Iraqi citizens like Assad and his Baathists are doing in Syria-the Arab Spring rebellion in Syria would have definitely spilled over into Iraq with Saddam using chemical weapons to put it down like he did in the past.
Futhermore , if Obama had been our 43rd president Putin would likely have achieved his overarching goal in Georgia of replacing its pro-Western government with leaders favoring Moscow.
We have overcome our inordinate fear of all our enemies.
As Obama's reckless policies of apology, appeasement, reset and retreat turn into the worst foreign policy catastrophe since the inept Jimmy Carter abandoned the shah and kissed Leonid Breshnev we can only guess at what fresh disasters he's unleashing upon the world beyond the horrors of Syria, Iraq, Libya, Egypt and Ukraine. With three more years left in his epically failed presidency all catastrophes are possible with this God awful fool of a leader.
Or could it be that Obama is so uniquely incompetent, feckless and bad that he can only be compared to himself?
