Policies bring more problems than solutions

Dear Mr. President,

Please stop messing with Israel. Prime Minister Netanyahu made it clear in his recent trip to meet with you in the Oval Office that he is not about to appease the Palestinians by giving up critical territory in Gaza that would endanger Israeli security.

Why don’t you understand that Israel is our only loyal ally in the Middle East? Also, why don’t you get it about the Palestinian connection with the Hamas/Fatah terrorists?

Their stated mission is to destroy Israel and kill as many Jews and Americans as they can. Yet, Mr. President, you seem to  be intent on supporting Palestine, telling Netanyahu that Israel should revert back to the pre-six-day war borders. By the way, in your meeting with the Prime Minister he exposed you as the unqualified, inept leader that you have proven to be.

On other important issues, illegal aliens, many of them drug-dealing criminals, continue to pour across our southern borders while you continue to promote vote-getting amnesty. Your whole mission seems to be getting re-elected, not what is best for the American citizens.

The next big decision coming up is whether to increase the debt ceiling by more than $2 trillion, money we will have to borrow.

Why don’t you embrace the House plan to cut the same amount of money from your grotesque spending programs? Otherwise, we may face the embarrassment of defaulting on our debt payments.

And, what about the jobs you promised, Mr. President, per the $800 billion plus “stimulus bill” at the beginning of your administration? Where has this money gone? Unemployment is back over 9 percent, the housing market is deplorable, Obamacare looks like a loser, and other than talk, nothing is really being done to fix our energy problems.

Finally, with our unsustainable debt, why are we still spending billions for foreign aid? The United Nations with 192 members are made up of a majority of nations that stand against America. A few come to the U.N. and deliver hate speeches versus our country. Why do we put up with this?
