Our Greatest Threat?

By on 4.11.12 | 10:50AM

With all the problems in the world, including clear and present danger to our national security and our troubled economy, President Obama is spending a second day with the focus of his schedule (besides fundraising): protecting Debbie Bosanek, Warren Buffett's suffering secretary.

Our Greatest Threat?
By Asher Embry

Assad keeps killing innocent civilians in the street.
The mullahs' quest to kill with nukes is virtually complete.
We can't tell who's our enemy on Afghan's battlefront.
And Kim Jung Un's about to launch his latest macho stunt.
At home the price of gas is soaring, so's our healthcare cost.
We're nowhere near replacing all the jobs Obama's lost.

Yet O has taken most his waking hours for two days
To shield us from our greatest threat: that Warren Buffett pays
A lower rate of federal tax than does his secretary.
(Forgive us if we think Plouffe's plan's just: be diversionary.)

Our enemies are nuts with nukes, but no need for alarm;
Obama's raising taxes on the rich -- we're safe from harm.
