To the editor:
Dear President Obama: Do not give up your day job. Please pay attention to Sen. McCain’s request that we provide arms for defense of the innocents being slaughtered in their fight to free themselves from the tyranny of Assad in Syria. You know, I know, Sen. McCain knows that United Nations resolutions are seldom, if ever, effective in these matters. Every day you delay letting the world know which side we are on condemns more to the meat grinder operating in Syria.
Surely we are on the right side there just as we were in Libya? Step up and help these people help themselves by shipping them more and better arms to defend themselves. After all they are doing much not to just rid themselves of a butcher, but his fall will truly isolate Iran from the rest of the Arab Muslim world and make your sanctions stronger.
Take this opportunity to make those Americans who voted for you proud and able to say “he is a real leader.” Do what Teddy Roosevelt would do and show what America still stands for. It would also quiet much of the criticism that you cannot be presidential. Show your John Wayne side. People would love it.
