Obama prolonging conflict for his own gain

info@islandpacket.comOctober 10, 2013 

In my history, which is getting kind of extensive, we've never had a more divisive president than Barack Obama. And I voted for the guy (first time around).

Leaders in conflict know the road to resolution requires that adversaries have a way to save face. It's elementary. Obama's inflammatory rhetoric leaves no graceful out for conservatives. He obviously wants to prolong this conflict and make hay of it. Future elections seem more important than current solutions.

Our president provides us a living illustration of a demagogue -- one who "seeks to make capital of social discontent."
