Texas governor Rick Perry announced on Saturday that he was running for president. In his teleprompter free speech he drew more distinctions between himself and Barack Obama.

His foreign policy seems to be based on alienating our traditional allies, while basing our domestic agenda on importing those failed Western European social values. We don’t need a president who apologizes for America. We need a president who protects and projects those values.

We all witnessed President Obama’s world apology tour shortly after taking office. The tour made those on the left feel all warm and fuzzy, while making those on the right hot under the collar. No longer would we have cowboy presidents throwing America’s weight around and causing the rest of the world to dislike and even attack us. He traveled to Cairo to bash the United States of America. Once you do that, you can’t walk it back. His replacement can, but he cannot. So what has his pro-world, anti-American view gotten him?

In a recent poll by Zogby, President Obama’s approval ratings in various countries around the Arab world are:

  • Morocco 12%, down from 16%
  • Egypt 5%, down from 9%
  • Jordan 10%, down from 16%
  • UAE 12%,down from 22%

But the real kicker is that President Obama’s approval ratings in the Arab world are now lower than President Bush’s ratings when he left office in 2008. In my book Liberty’s Lifeline, I write about the concept of “the strong horse,” President Obama is not a strong horse, President Bush was.


That’s my opinion; I’d like to know yours. Please comment below.
