As Paris burns, Obama teeters on the edge of reality. As Paris burns, Obama worries about sea levels in the Seychelles. As Paris burns, Obama calls Friday’s attacks, ‘a setback.’
A setback, Mr. President? One-hundred and twenty-nine people are dead, 350 plus are wounded and you call it a setback. What happened in Paris is a declaration of war on all of us.
Only hours before the Paris attacks began, Obama told the press that “ISIS was contained.” Contained like what, nitro-glycerin?
President Obama is AWOL (absent without leave) and has abandoned his duties as President, his post as Commander in Chief, his chair as the leader of the free world.
He is nothing more than a delusional weakling who is sleep-walking through the White House, while ISIS murders its way across the planet.
Today, in Turkey, Obama got testy with reporters. He can’t admit that his so-called strategy is no strategy.
“The equation has clearly changed. Isn’t it time for your strategy to change?” a French reporter asked.
“Well, keep in mind what we have been doing,” Obama said. “We have a military strategy that involves putting enormous pressure on ISIS through airstrikes, that has put assistance and training on the ground with Iraqi forces. We’re now working with Syrian forces as well to squeeze ISIS.”
Enormous pressure? Obama continued ticking off actions the US had taken.
“We’ve been coordinating internationally to reduce their financing capabilities, the oil that they’re trying to ship outside. We are taking strikes against high-value targets,” he said.
“As I said from the start, it’s going to take time. What’s been interesting in the aftermath of Paris, as I listen to those who suggest ‘something else needs to be done,’ typically the things they suggest need to be done are things we are already doing,” he said.
Jim Acosta, a CNN reporter, summed up what he termed the “frustration” of many Americans when he colorfully asked, “Why can’t we take out the bastards?”
Exactly… not only Americans, but millions of people across the world are thinking the same thing as Jim Acosta.
Obama should be saying one thing to ISIS, “Romeo Foxtrot, shall we dance…” Instead he’s calling for strategic patience. Good God.
Today, he said that ISIS doesn’t represent Islam. What do they represent, the Rotary Club? They’re not Baptists, Jews, Catholics, Episcopalians, Hindus or Buddhists. They’re radical Muslims and they’re murderers. More importantly, they’re our enemy. They’re the enemy of humanity.
The French have begun to conduct airstrikes against ISIS targets in Raqqa, which were provided by the US. The question is; why weren’t we hitting those targets? Answer: the daisies in the Obama White House are terrified of collateral damage. By trying to avoid any collateral damage to save a handful of lives, Obama has condemned millions of people to torture, rape, execution and refugee status.
Meanwhile, only 72 hours after the Paris attacks, the Great Community Organizer is pushing hard for the arrival of 100,000 Syrian refugees. These people cannot be vetted and there must certainly be members of ISIS posing as poor, downtrodden migrants waiting for Barry Obama to save them. I’m calling that plan Operation Imminent Cluster. Obama is endangering all of us by this reckless foolishness.
We are in a clash of civilizations where there is no substitute for victory. Europe is waiting for America to lead, to invoke the age old motto of the Infantry, “follow me.” The free world is facing its greatest threat to its existence since World War II and the leader of the free world is asleep at the wheel.
President Obama’s lack of leadership, President Obama’s naivete, President Obama’s unwillingness to fight evil is putting us all in jeopardy. President Obama is not only imperiling his own country, but everyone on the planet who believes in the cause of freedom.
Obama is Ike Clanton at the OK Corral. He’s in the fight, but refuses to draw and is scurrying for cover, as the world burns around him.
Obama is Neville Chamberlain, believing that if he closes his eyes the bad guys will go away. They won’t. They never do, unless you exterminate them.
Obama is Jimmy Carter without the humanity and Bill Clinton without the soul.
Obama is a disaster and it’s becoming more and more apparent every day.
How many more innocent people will die while Obama sleeps? How many more attacks will occur while Obama sleeps? How many more people will ISIS recruit and torture and rape while Obama sleeps?
The President of the United States is AWOL. ISIS knows it and will continue to exploit this weakness to the best of their advantage.
I believe firmly that President Obama should resign immediately. In May of 1940, as the Nazis overran Western Europe and the British suffered a series of military disasters, Leo Amery, a Member of Parliament, stood up and said to Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain, “You have sat too long here for any good you have been doing. Depart, I say, and let us have done with you. In the name of God, go!”
Enter Winston Churchill. Where is America’s Churchill in this dark hour?
