Mack to Obama: "You Can't Call "Time-Out' on National Security"

Statement

President Obama put his national security weakness on full display for the world when he pleaded with the Russians to hold-off on missile defense treaty negotiations until after the November elections.

Responding to President Obama's outrageous choice to put politics ahead of America's security, Congressman Connie Mack, Member of the U.S. House Foreign Relations Committee, issued the following statement:

"How dare President Obama sell out our security behind our backs when he thought no one was listening. The invasion of Europe on June 6, 1944 didn't wait because President Roosevelt was worried about his re-election six months later; it happened because every President has known that foreign policy does not revolve around our election schedule and our ability to be "flexible' with our security. It is now time for President Obama to get out of the way, since he cannot lead or follow. Putting his own election, and the election of his liberal allies like Bill Nelson, above the interests of our nation and our allies is inexcusable. The Iranians aren't going to stop the nuclear threat to our ally Israel; Hugo Chavez hasn't stopped harboring terrorists in Venezuela, and terrorists themselves aren't putting their plans to attack us on hold because of President Obama's election hopes. The people of Florida have had enough, and today I call on Senator Bill Nelson to join me in demanding an apology from President Obama for this foreign policy failure to the people of Florida and the nation. The President owes all Americans an explanation for his inexcusable behavior today on the world stage."
