It’s difficult to overstate the petulance of our president. In his latest press conference, Obama took credit for every perceived good and blamed Republicans for every perceived bad. He blasted Congress for going on vacation as he was leaving for his in
Currently, ISIS is on the march in
The cumulative effect of Obama’s feckless foreign policy is weakness.
So what diversion does Obama dangle as bait before his media in his last press conference before they vacation together? With his CIA caught snooping on Senators, he changes the topic to his favorite “Blame Bush” theme by leaking a CIA document on torture.
Now the discussions go from CIA spying on Senators,
The “torture” issue was well behind us. But Obama has effectively accused Bush of war crimes, thus again deeming his political foes enemies of the state.
In my view, we need to find out who leaked this and hire a friendly but tough foreigner to strap them to a board and pour water in their faces until they say they are sorry. It sounds like a job for Liam Neeson.
We mostly water-boarded Khalid Sheik-Mohammed, the 9/11 mastermind and evil-genius bomb builder. He’s been in the
Constantly second-guessing and blaming the previous administration have been taken to un-Presidential depths. Those were tough post-9/11 decisions. I am not sure how Obama makes decisions, but he appears to use the “rock, paper, scissors” method.
Never have unrepentant incompetence and epic narcissism melded so seamlessly in one President.
After 9/11, Bush felt we had two choices. The first was to grab the guys who did it and interrogate them to get to the leaders. That was the right choice. The other was to invade and bomb
Obama’s unnecessary and blunt statement that we engaged in “torture” will just further inflame the Arab world and give its extremists more reason to fight. To Obama, blame and politics come before what is best for
Waterboarding is not torture. Yes, it’s a really unpleasant experience I’d prefer not to endure, but so were the first five years of Obama's presidency.
Obama wants to shut down Gitmo, but his naiveté has been exposed. What is he going to do with all those ruthless terrorists? He has run out of
It is no wonder Obama was recently rated the worst president in modern history and his approval numbers are at an all-time low. Ebola and Malaysia Air get better reviews on Yelp.
We can go with the instincts of Obama and his dolt sidekick Biden, who prefer second guessing their predecessors to making any tough decisions. Or we can go with Dick Cheney. When it comes to tough choices for our safety, I’m with the guy who shot the lawyer in the face. Unlike Obama, when Cheney leaks water on your leg, he doesn’t tell you it's raining and blame it on climate change.
Terrorists in 2001 who hated us for our prosperity and liberty will, after President Obola is through with our country, have to find other reasons to hate us.
He said he was going to “fundamentally transform" the country. We gave Obama the
