HMM, I GUESS 50 WASN’T ENOUGH … THIS FOOL JUST HAS NO CLUE. WHO IS THE JV?
What a joke, Barack Obama announced Monday that he plans to send 250 more special forces to Syria to help build on his so-called successes against ISIS. Oh, what would that be Mr. President? Maybe you could tell us the plan and what you think Syria might look like in 2-5-10 years? I pray for the day we can have a Commander in Chief that actually has a clue and wants to truly defeat the enemy, not use our brave young men and women of out Armed Forced as pawns. Maybe it is just better that he go golf, attend baseball games and pick March Madness brackets.
President Barack Obama announced on Monday the biggest expansion of U.S. ground troops in Syria since the civil war there began, saying he would dispatch 250 special forces soldiers to help local militia to build on successes against Islamic State.
The new deployment increases U.S. forces in Syria six-fold to about 300. While the total U.S. ground force is still small by comparison to other American deployments, defense experts said it could help shift the momentum in Syria by giving more Syrian fighters on the ground access to U.S. close air support.
Announcing the decision in Germany at the end of a six-day foreign tour, Obama said the move followed on victories over Islamic State that clawed back territory from the hard-line Sunni Islamist group.
“Given the success, I’ve approved the deployment of up to 250 additional U.S. personnel in Syria, including special forces to keep up this momentum,” Obama said in a speech at a trade fair in the northern city of Hanover, the last stop on a trip that has taken him to Saudi Arabia and Britain.
“They’re not going to be leading the fight on the ground, but they will be essential in providing the training and assisting local forces as they continue to drive ISIL back,” he added, using an acronym for Islamic State, also known as ISIS.
“I literally from the time I met her 45 years ago ‘til we talked yesterday, she is the best change-maker I have ever known. She always finds a way to make something good happen, to make people feel empowered, to buy people into the process, to make democracy work the way the framers intended for it to work.
Now, if you don’t believe we can all grow together again, if you don’t believe we’re ever going to grow again, if you believe it’s more important to re-litigate the past, there may be many reasons that you don’t want to support her.
But if you believe we can all rise together, if you believe we’ve finally come to the point where we can put the awful legacy of the last eight years behind us and the seven years before that when we were practicing trickle-down economics and no regulation in Washington, which is what caused the crash, then you should vote for her because she’s the only person who basically had good ideas will tell you how she’s going to pay for them, can be commander in chief and is a proven change maker with republicans and democrats and independents alike.”
An update from TEAM Clinton reveals that Bill Clinton meant that the legacy he was referring to was Republicans’ obstructionism. Really? Sorry, but Obama and the Republicans were part of that awful 8 years. You cant have one without the other. Also, as the Washington Examiner reminds us, this is the second time this month that Bill Clinton has slammed President Obama’s economy, the latest a junking of his whole seven-plus years in office as an “awful legacy. Nice spin Slick Willie, but we know exactly what you meant.
The Comedian in Chief strikes again … WHAT A SICK, SICK, SOB.
What a small, small man you are. So Barack Hussein Obama can’t seem to find the time or the class to attend the late Justice Antonin Scalia’s funeral, but he can find the time to joke about the justice’s untimely death. Obama did so on February 22, 2016, as he delivered remarks to the National Governors Association at the White House. What’s worse, not only did this poor excuse for a president and human make the sick and pathetic joke, there were those in the room that laughed. REALLY? So this is what is funny to Obama. What a sick individual this man truly is. Never have we had such a divisive president hold the office. You will be judged one day Mr. President, and you will have a lot of explaining.
Is it any wonder why this country is as divided as it is with a president who would make such a joke? And you wonder Barack why you will never nominate a justice SCOTUS.
Just curious, what do you think the reaction would be if a Democrat president passed away in office whose name sounds like Barry Soetoro and a Republican leader made a joke about the succession of power? Yeah, that’s what I thought it would be.
The most classless president ever to hold the Office … Thanks America!
OK GOP, IF THERE WAS EVER A REASON TO NOW BLACK ANY OBAMA SCOTUS NOMINEE … YOU WERE JUST PROVIDED THE REASON.
Barack Obama, what a small, little man … The White House has announced that Barack Obama will not attend the funeral of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. Weasel Zippers could not have stated it any better. REALLY? what kind of a skeevy and divisive SOB must you be to be a president of the United States and not attend a SCOTUS’ funeral, especially when you plan on putting forth a judicial nominee to replaced the deceased Scalia? There is a reason why Obama is considered the most decisive president ever. He has more than earned the title. I guess Jon Lovitz was correct.
President Barack Obama is preparing for a fierce battle with the Senate over the Supreme Court vacancy, but he’s not planning to attend Justice Antonin Scalia’s funeral — a decision that puzzled even some of his allies and incensed conservative media.
“If we want to reduce partisanship, we can start by honoring great public servants who we disagree with,” Obama’s former “car czar” Steven Rattner tweeted with a link to a headline about Obama skipping the funeral.
Fox News host Sean Hannity blasted out his own site’s article that dismissed the decision as disappointingly expected: “Obama To SKIP Scalia Funeral, Here’s A List Of OTHER Funerals He Was Too Busy To Attend.”
White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest revealed the president’s plans during the daily briefing, saying Obama and first lady Michelle Obama will go to the Supreme Court on Friday “to pay their respects to Justice Scalia” while the justice lies in repose in the Great Hall. Vice President Joe Biden and his wife Jill Biden, who share Scalia’s Catholic faith, will be at the services instead.
What a sick little man who would let his political ideology get in the way of showing the respect that he should in one’s death. Is it any wonder why so many do not consider this man their president. Classless, simply classless.
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) Says Barack Obama has ‘Deliberately Weakened America’ … Calls Hillary Clinton a “Liar”
RUBIO BLAST OBAMA, SAYS HE DELIBERATELY WEAKENED AMERICA …
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and 2016 GOP presidential candidate stated at a speak on Monday on national security at the American Legion in Hooksett, N.H. that Barack Obama has intentionally and deliberately weakened America both home and abroad. No kidding, really? Just curious, what has the establishment GOP done to prevent or stand in the way of Obama’s actions? Obama stated he was going to fundamentally change America, and sadly he has while Republicans in the House and Senate have done nothing. Rubio also called Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton a “liar” on foreign policy. Tell us something we don’t know. She is pretty much a liar in general. Red State opines, Marco Rubio Is More Right Than Donald Trump On Obama’s Foreign Policy. That may be, but he scared the GOP base on immigration.
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) is accusing President Obama of intentionally weakening America at home and abroad.
“It’s now abundantly clear: Barack Obama has deliberately weakened America,” Rubio said early Monday during a speech on national security at the American Legion in Hooksett, N.H.
“He has made an intentional effort to humble us back to size,” the GOP presidential hopeful said. “As if to say: We no longer need to be so powerful because our power has done more harm than good.”
“Happiest of all have been America’s enemies,” he added. “Because when America steps back, it gives darker forces the space they need to rise. And rise they have.”
He also criticized Obama for ignoring international challenges and eroding safety at home.
“America is in far greater danger today than it was eight years ago,” Rubio said. “Our president thought he could make America like Luxembourg or Switzerland. But he can’t.
“We are the United States of America — the highest-profile, most important, most powerful country in the world. And while we may ignore problems that exist far away, those problems do not ignore us.”
Rubio cited China, Iran, Russia, Syria and North Korea as some of the global hotspots that have deteriorated on Obama’s watch.
He also argued that Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton is no better on foreign policy, again calling her a “liar.”
Barack Obama Goes Golfing in Hawaii Terrorist Attack In Afghanistan Kills Six American Soldiers … Because It’s All About Him
SORRY AMERICA, BUT THE MAN JUST DOES NOT CARE …
Once again we are witness to Barack Obama’s lack of character, empathy any anything remotely presidential as Obama goes golfing on vacation after informed of a terror attack in Afghanistan that killed six American service members. Is there anything that would prevent this individual from going golfing? One has to wonder if Obama had been president during the Japanese Pearl Harbor sneak attack or 9-11 terror attacks whether this so-called president would have canceled his plans to go golfing? One would have to doubt it. But its the Democrat mantra when it comes to Americans killed under their watch … what difference does it make. It’s bad enough that Obama has acted like Air Force One is like an “Uber” ride, as the travel expenses are thru the roof, but could this man at least pretend like he cares about some one else more than himself?
Of course Obama would never stop his golf game and have to admit that Afghanistan is a failure, of his doing. The deaths of the six US servicemen was the largest loss of life of American troops in Afghanistan this year. The Taliban claim responsibility, you remember the same Taliban of which Obama swapped 5 Taliban terrorists for traitor Beau
Shhh … don’t tell anyone I am the greatest failure of a president, EVER!!!
President Obama is on vacation in Hawaii, where he was informed of a terrorist attack in Afghanistan that killed six American service members.
The attack was carried out by a suicide bomber on a motorcycle outside a U.S. military base, the largest loss of life of American troops in Afghanistan this year. The Taliban claim responsibility.
But the sobering news didn’t stop Obama from heading to the golf course, a tradition for the president as he enjoys the Hawaii climate during the holidays.
The president and three of his friends hit the golf course shortly after noon at the Mid-Pacific Country Club.
While Obama was on the course, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest released a statement in response to the attacks. “We express our deepest condolences to the families of the six U.S. service members killed and to all of those injured in today’s Taliban attack near Bagram Airfield in Afghanistan. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims, their families, and their loved ones,” the statement read, adding that the United States condemned the “cowardly attack.”
Unreal, the United States gets a statement from the White House press secretary of condolences to the family and that our thoughts and prayers are with the victims, their families, and their loved ones, as Obama is playing a sand wedge from the bunker? HUH? Oh yeah, he so cares, his actions are all we need to see to realize he just doesn’t give a $hit. Check out the pics at Breitbart.com where Obama can be seen making it all about him as he chips it in on the 18th hole. What a poor excuse for a president, a commander in Chief and a man.
Sorry, this president lost me when he showed his true lack of character and decided to make fun of developmentally challenged Special Olympic athletes and made a joke of them. What a dirt-bag.
Comparing his poor bowling score … “It was like Special Olympics or something”
Did we really need a U.S Intelligence Report on ISIS to tell us that Barack Obama’s efforts against ISIS have been a failure and that the terror group was not contained?
A new U.S. intelligence report on ISIS, commissioned by the White House, predicts that the self-proclaimed Islamic State will spread worldwide and grow in numbers, unless it suffers a significant loss of territory on the battlefield in Iraq and Syria, U.S. officials told The Daily Beast.
The report stands in stark contrast to earlier White House assurances that ISIS had been “contained” in Iraq and Syria. And it is already spurring changes in how the U.S. grapples with ISIS, these officials said.
It’s also a tacit admission that coalition efforts so far—dropping thousands of bombs and deploying 3,500 U.S. troops as well as other coalition trainers—have been outpaced by ISIS’s ability to expand and attract new followers, even as the yearlong coalition air campaign has helped local forces drive ISIS out of parts of Iraq and Syria.
Donald Trump Reacts to Barack Obama’s Prime Time Speech on Terrorism and Defeating ISIS … “We Need a New President Fast”
“We Need a New President Fast” …
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump was live tweeting Barack Obama’s prime time speech to America last night on terrorism and how we are going to defeat ISIS. It would appear that Trump was just tweeting what many Americans were thinking after watching the failed and tired same old, same old speech.
GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump said late Sunday that a new leader is needed to defeat the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).
“Is that all there is?” Trump asked after President Obama addressed the nation from the Oval Office on Sunday night. “We need a new president – fast!”
“Well, Obama refused to say (he just can’t say it) that we are at war with radical Islamic terrorists,” Trump continued.
“Wish Obama would say ISIS, like almost everyone else, rather than ISIL,” he added, citing Obama’s use of the administration’s preferred acronym for the terrorist group.
And there was more …
UPDATE I: GOP Candidates Bash Obama Speech.
- Carly Fiorina also posted on Twitter after Obama’s speech: “Vintage Obama: No strategy, no leadership. Politics as usual.” She also included a video discussing her plan to defeat ISIS.
- Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) joined Fox News following Obama’s address and told host Bret Baier, “This is a president that called [ISIS] the JV when they first emerged.”
He said Obama “called the attacks in Paris a ‘setback,’” adding that after the Paris attack, Obama only showed emotion toward attacking the GOP candidates pushing to stop the Syrian refugee resettlement program.
“We continue to conduct very limited air assaults,” Rubio added, saying ISIS won’t be defeated only with air assaults.
Rubio also said gun control wouldn’t have prevented the attack in San Bernardino, California
- Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) released a statement prior to Obama’s address this evening.
The reality is that what President Obama, Secretary Kerry and Hillary Clinton have done has not worked. Their policies have in fact made the world more dangerous. It is time for a dramatic shift in both foreign and national security policy. Tonight when President Obama addresses the nation, I hope that he will acknowledge and take responsibility for the failed policies of his administration and will take concrete steps to reverse the damage done.

Barack Obama’s Oval Office Address to the Nation on his Plan to Defeat ISIS and Terrorism … Just Bad Reheated Leftovers with a Dash of Gun Control
A FAILED PLAN FROM A FAILED PRESIDENT: Barack Obama’s 4 point plan can be summed up in four letters … J – O – K – E
Are you kidding me, that is why Barack Obama had a prime time address to the United States? Talk about 14 minutes that we will never get back. Last night Obama provided a four point plan that sounded an awful lot like the plain that he already had in place. This was nothing more than a defense of his failed policies on ISIS. Oh but wait, he made sure to use the San Bernardino terror attack to call for more gun control. It was nothing more than to reassure Americans of his previous four point plan that has done nothing to contain ISIS. In typical Obama leaderless fashion, Obama spent more time on what we shouldn’t do, rather than discussing what we should do. However, what Obama made sure to do was to make a connection between national security and the need for gun control following America’s latest mass shooting. Really Mr President, what about the pipe bombs and the fact that law enforcement stated that the terrorists garage in San Bernardino was a bomb factory?
And of course Barack Obama was sure to mention Islamophobia as is with all the acts of violence that have taken place in the United States and its citizens slaughtered both here and abroad that Americans have targeted Muslims. Unlike the Democrats hero FDR who rounded up the Japanese and put them in internment camps.
“I know that after so much war, many Americans are asking whether we are confronted by a cancer that has no immediate cure,” Obama said. But he expressed confidence that the country can “overcome” the threat. “The threat from terrorism is real, but we will overcome it,” Obama said. “Our defence won’t depend on tough talk,” he added. “Instead we will prevail by being stronger and smarter.”
Obama was particularly forceful on speaking up against Islamophobia. He noted that, yes, Muslim leaders have a responsibility to push back against hateful rhetoric and “speak out against not just acts of violence, but also those interpretations of Islam that are incompatible with the values of religious tolerance, mutual respect, and human dignity.” But Americans “of every faith” must also “reject discrimination.” As part of an impassioned plea against discrimination, Obama criticized those who have suggested those from certain religions should get priority to be accepted as refugees.
UPDATE I: If it is such common sense to have people on the “No Fly” list be able to buy guns … why was the late Massachusetts Senator and Democrat presidential candidate Ted Kennedy on the no fly list? So Obama are you saying that he should not have been able to but a gun, if he were still alive?
Bloomberg Poll: Most Americans Oppose Syrian Refugee Resettlement, NBC Poll Supports More Troops to Fight ISIS … Obama on the Wrong Side of the American People Once Again
Bloomberg released a poll on Wednesday that voices the opinion of the national attitudes on America’s commitment to take in 10,000 Syrian refugees following the terror attacks in France and ISIS’s statements that they will infiltrate the Syrian refugees to America. But once again, the ideologue, dense, obtuse and and incompetent Barack Obama says, the hell with the facts and the American people, we are going forward.
One would almost think that he is trying to put America at risk. Barack Obama states that he was going to fundamentally transform America if elected, guess what .. he is doing just that. Say goodbye to what you used to call America.
Most Americans want the U.S. to stop letting in Syrian refugees amid fears of terrorist infiltrations after the Paris attacks, siding with Republican presidential candidates, governors, and lawmakers who want to freeze the Obama administration’s resettlement program.
The findings are part of a Bloomberg Politics national poll released Wednesday that also shows the nation divided on whether to send U.S. troops to Iraq and Syria to fight the Islamic State, an idea President Barack Obama opposes, and whether the U.S. government is doing enough to protect the homeland from a comparable attack.
Fifty-three percent of U.S. adults in the survey, conducted in the days immediately following the attacks, say the nation should not continue a program to resettle up to 10,000 Syrian refugees. Just 28 percent would keep the program with the screening process as it now exists, while 11 percent said they would favor a limited program to accept only Syrian Christians while excluding Muslims, a proposal Obama has dismissed as “shameful” and un-American.
REALLY, ITS UN-AMERICAN TO WANT TO PROTECT AMERICA AND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE FROM OUTSIDE DANGERS? Barack Obama might want to check out his presidential oath of office and that he is beholden to the American people, not refugees. I must have missed the part of the US Constitution where it says we have to put ourselves at risk for refugees from a region of the world that chants, death to America. Did Obama have his fingers crossed when he took the oath?
“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.”
And even though The Bloomberg poll is mixed on sending ground troops, a new NBC poll shows that Americans are heavily in favor of sending more troops to fight ISIS. An amazing 70% believe that the US and its allies are losing the war against ISIS. Way to go Barack Obama. You are an inept and total failure. The NBC poll also has a majority of Americans against bring Syrian refugees to the United States.
Roughly two-thirds of the country (65 percent) want more troops on the ground in Iraq and Syria to combat IS, which took responsibility for the attacks in Paris, France, last week that killed more than 120 people. When broken down by political party, a majority of Republicans, Democrats, and two-thirds of independents agree on sending more troops to combat the terrorist group.
President Obama had previously said that putting troops on the ground would be a mistake and stood by his current strategy on fighting IS.
Since the spring a majority of Americans, 53 percent, feel the the United State government is not doing enough to eradicate the threat of terrorism, which is up from 37 percent in April. Meet the Press Daily’s Chuck Todd said that the number was not surprising given the amount of coverage of the recent Paris terrorist attacks.
