In November 2008, Senator Barack Obama made history by becoming the first African-American president to be elected to the White House. His historic victory was a remarkable symbol of hope for many Americans (both black and white). Many perceived his victory as a glimpse of hope for a new day in both the political and economic landscape in the United States. However, his presidency has not affected the kind of hope or change that many anticipated. Instead, his presidency has been a great disappointment for several reasons. First, the unemployment rate of African-Americans and minorities has increased during Obama’s presidency. Second, the healthcare system in this country is a disaster. Third, Obama’s fight against terror has been a colossal failure, and his strategy for fighting ISIS is nebulous.

President Obama shockingly refuses to admit that the current war on terror is against radical Islamic terrorists. The most recent example of this is the execution of 21 Coptic Christians in Libya. ISIS executed these Christians on a video for all to see. And they announced that the reason for the execution was the fact that these Coptic Egyptians were Christians. However, Obama’s liberal ideology, his lack of experience in dealing with international terrorism, and (pardon my directness) his incompetency have prevented him from boldly asserting that the current war on terror is a war against radical Islam. This is despite the fact that ISIS murdered 21 Coptic Christians simply because of their faith in Christ. I am angered, outraged, stunned, and ashamed that the United States’ first black president refuses to call radical Islamic terrorism what it is—radical Islamic terrorism, even when these radical Islamic terrorists murder, execute, and slaughter innocent Christians simply because they are Christians.

I am proud to say that I did not vote for President Obama. I was concerned about his liberal ideology and his lack of experience in national or international leadership. Many African-Americans, however, voted for him because he’s black—this is supported by the fact that the African-Americans voted in record number during his first election to the White House. Consequently, they ignored Dr. King’s words that we should judge a man based on the content of his character instead of the color of his skin. And they instead played the role of the hypocrite. President Obama’s failure to identify radical Islam as the enemy even when Islamic fascists, known as ISIS, murder innocent Christians because of their faith, is an absolute embarrassment to this country and to the dream for which Dr. King died. In my view, one of President Obama’s greatest failures as President of this great country is failure to identify and fiercely go after radical Islamic terrorists.
