I just discovered news about the petition on the White House website asking Obama to demand the release of Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi. (See the Fox News article: WH Petition to Free Marine).
The problem is, Obama has no reason to care about Sgt. Tahmooressi. If you look at what Obama actually believes, I’m guessing he would jail him in the United States, if he could get away with it. Tahmooressi owns guns. He’s a Marine. Worse than that, he’s probably a conservative. May even be a climate change denier. The world would be better off without him, in Obama’s view.
He’s in the wrong constituency group all around here.
Look at how the Obama administration treats Tea Party groups – IRS harassment. Veterans – treatment delays. Active military – benefits cut. People who believe in gun rights – ridicule and marginalization. No, this guy is more likely to get sympathy from the Mexican government, as corrupt as that may be, than from the Obama administration.
