Republican Joni Ernst SLAMS OBAMA Over Delayed Release of Sgt. Tahmooressi

Republican Ernst Slams Obama–
Republican senate candidate Joni Ernst slammed Barack Obama over his response to the imprisonment of Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi.

The US Marine sergeant was released from a Mexican jail this weekend after eight months of confinement. Tahmooressi was reportedly stripped naked, chained to a bed and beaten with a bat during his detention.

Joni Ernst, an Iraq War veteran, blasted President Obama over his hands off approach to Tahmooressi’s detention.

“I am so disappointed that we did not pursue this aggressively. He should have been released a number of months ago. This is just another case of our administration not being pro-active, being very reactive. We’ve seen that with every instance out there. Whether it comes to Ebola, whether it comes to ISIS. Whether it comes to this situation. We have an administration that’s just so hands off, disengaged. We can do better. We have to do better.”

“I am very proud of my military service and we need to take care of those folks who have served honorably. And, in this case we didn’t stand up and pursue this aggressively enough. I fault the president with that.

For many of you who have been following my political blogs, you just may have become aware of my absolute and redundant disparagement for Barack Obama; a repudiation which once led me to writing my article, later turned into a book ‘The Beginning of the End’, wherein I go to great lengths in sharing with the American public my worst fears for what this man [Barack Obama] and his cronies are doing to this great nation of ours, to how this charlatan impostor has transformed America, sinking our country to unfathomable levels never before seen of disarray, chaos and bedlam both here and abroad.

Never before has America been closer to hitting rock-bottom as we are under the presidency of this Obama person; including but not limited to some of the worst presidential specimens in recent history such as was the pitiable Jimmy Carter. Not even this mournful version of a president [Carter], could come close to our present adaption – a decried and deprecated fraud, who calls himself Barack Hussein Obama.

At times, the Obama presidency seems like a Greek tragedy; one riddled with tragic plots based upon unending myths from the oral traditions of archaic epics written by this theater’s greatest authors Aeschylus, Sophocles and Euripides, notwithstanding that epoch’s plausible lack of such a portentous liar as is our esteemed president. I thought I had seen it all in this presidency. I have seen the unending scandals; the unparalleled controversies, from Obamacare to Benghazi; to the IRS; to a tempestuous expansion of the terrorist ISIL army; to our weakened position as leader of the free world; to our acquiescent world of economic prowess and our deferential writs of passage given to countries such as China and resurgent Russian expansionism under the auspices of Vladimir Putin; I have seen it all. Notwithstanding this epitome of decadency in the greater scope of things, I must, however, turn your attention to those seemingly more insignificant if yet, irretrievably more repugnant happenings in Obama’s disgraceful reign of un-American postures and outright reprehensible legacies.

My dissertation today deals with none other than the saga of Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi, spinelessly arrested in Mexico on March 31st, 2014, charged with the unlawful entry into that country while in possession of unauthorized loaded weaponry – a serious violation of Mexican law, for which he is now on trial, albeit the fact that Sgt. Tahmooressi’s crossing of the Mexican border was as innocuous as taking a taking a wrong turn in a poorly marked border-entry road.
