Obama’s ISIS Strategy: Smoke and Mirrors

Ever since talk radio blew his “I’m so checking out” cover, Obama has been forced to drum up a strategy for dealing with ISIS. That strategy can be summed up in three words: smoke and mirrors.

Here’s how this will work:

Handling Barack: Incompetence by Design

Is Obama frighteningly incompetent or is he just out to destroy America? This questions is growing some pretty stout legs these days.  And while I’d say he’s both, I’d like to throw another option into the ring. I believe, behind all the sinister incompetence, Obama is nothing more than a puppet president. A figurehead. A bobble head who has been raised, groomed, and maneuvered into the presidency by handlers.

Obama and Clinton: If You’re Guilty and You Know It, Raise Your Hands…

…and if you’re Obama, ponder your travel plans to Vegas.

Revealed: America Was Warned-Did Nothing

It’s going to be nothing short of fascinating to see how these two plan on getting away with this one. But, sadly, I have little doubt that they will.

Here are my predictions for how Obama and his apparatchiks will get out of world-wide hot water.

Obama Reigns As the World’s Most Competitive Puppet

My first thought when I read Jodi Kantor’s New York Times article, The Competitor in Chief: Obama Plays to Win, was that she intended to bolster up Obama and make him look less like the empty suit that he really is. She didn’t pull it off.  Rather than successfully painting her Dear Leader as some kind of iconic hero, she only confirmed what many of us already knew; that he’s a pathological, narcissistic one-upper.

Alec Baldwin Laments Obama’s Lack of Spending

Alec Baldwin: Financial Crisis Has ‘Crippled’ Obama, Preventing Him From ‘Doing Any New Spending’ | CNSnews.com

We have Alec Baldwin, the Left’s political go-to guy, to thank for summing up the Democrat Party’s take on the role of government.

When asked by reporters if he thought Obama has lived up to his expectations, this was Baldwin’s reply:

“Well, I mean, I think so because I think that when you come into office and you want to put your mark on things — this is just my opinion, when you want to put your mark on things, you want to be able to spend. And what’s crippled Obama’s administration, as far as I’m concerned, is the financial crisis and it’s prevented him from doing any new spending.

“He’s not able – if the country was as flush as it was under Bill Clinton and he had money — these things cost money — he could have made more of a mark,” said Baldwin. “I think right now he’s had to do a lot of counter-punching; a lot of back peddling. He inherited this crisis from Bush and Paulson. He had to extend the TARP. I think it’s been very difficult for him to spend his whole first term trying to, you know, correct our course financially. I think a second term of Obama, we’ll see a lot more of what we want to see from him.”

The mental giant and Kevin Spacey were in Washington pressing the government to continue spending the taxpayers’ money to fund the National Endowment for the Arts.

Obama Works on SNL Schtick for 2012 Campaign

Obama mocks Trump’s presidential ambitions – Yahoo! News


At the White House Correspondents’ Association annual dinner, Obama used his stand up 
act in front of his jack-booted press to hone his campaign skills and lambaste Donald Trump over the whole birther issue. Aside from the obvious display of petulance and the lack of anything even remotely resembling presidential behavior, Obama showed us all just how the 2012 campaign is going to look.

The upcoming presidential election won’t be about the economy, jobs, immigration, or foreign policy. It will be a campaign made to order for Comedy Central types, Hollywood leftists, and union thugs. In other words, it will be a campaign of character assassinations, bold-faced lies, and really lame attempts at humor.

Brokaw Fuzzy On Obama’s Problems

Brokaw: No President Has Faced So Many Problems

Really?

No president has faced so many problems or created so many problems? I’m pretty sure Brokaw meant to say created, because Obama’s presidency, from an hours-spent-actually-doing-presidential-stuff  perspective, has been a cake walk. And from where I’m sitting, it doesn’t look like he’s focusing, razor-like, on any problems.

What problems has Obama faced that he hasn’t created? Hmmm…well, there is that getting locked out of the White House problem.

"Um..guys..hello...I'm, uh, here. Could someone, uh, let me in?"

But, in truth, he actually created this little fiasco by a) not hiring competent people to house-sit, and b) not remembering the White House key Bill Clinton hid under the back door flower pot.

Google Runs Cover For Obama: No Pics of Rio Vacation?

Unless I missed them, I can’t find many pictures of the Obama clan in Rio. Either our Commander in Chief has informed his state-run press that he doesn’t want to be seen as the completely uninterested, narcissistic, free-loading leader of the free world that he is, or Google is running cover for him.

Both are equally plausible.

A Warning About Appeasing Our Enemies: Douglas MacArthur

I ran across this today as I was preparing my son’s history reading for the week.

It is painfully apparent that history, ignored, is a poor teacher. History, as rewritten by democrats and promulgated in the schools and media, is a dangerous teacher.

We need to be about the business of educating the people of this country.

From MacArthur’s farewell speech to Congress, April 19, 1951.

“I address you with neither rancor nor bitterness in the fading twilight of life, with but one purpose in mind: to serve my country. The issues are global and so interlocked that to consider the problems of one sector, oblivious to those of another, is but to court disaster for the whole. While Asia is commonly referred to as the Gateway to Europe, it is no less true that Europe is the Gateway to Asia, and the broad influence of the one cannot fail to have its impact upon the other. There are those who claim our strength is inadequate to protect on both fronts, that we cannot divide our effort. I can think of no greater expression of defeatism. If a potential enemy can divide his strength on two fronts, it is for us to counter his effort. [Al Queda is active on all fronts around the globe. The current administration in America not only won’t counter Al Queda’s efforts, they are knowingly making it easier for terrorists.] The Communist threat is a global one. Its successful advance in one sector threatens the destruction of every other sector. You cannot appease or otherwise surrender to communism [Islamic terrorism] in Asia [America] without simultaneously undermining our efforts to halt its advance in Europe [around the world].

I called for reinforcements but was informed that reinforcements were not available. [General McChrystal fared as well with the Obama regime.] I made clear that if not permitted to destroy the enemy build-up bases north of the Yalu, if not permitted to utilize the friendly Chinese force of some 600,000 men on Formosa, if not permitted to blockade the China coast to prevent the Chinese Reds from getting succor from without, and if there were to be no hope of major reinforcements, the position of the command from the military standpoint forbade victory.” [Obamreceived a similar report from McChrystal, and deliberately ignored it.]

“But once war is forced upon us, there is no other alternative than to apply every available means to bring it to a swift end.

War’s very object is victory, no prolonged indecision. [Obama despises victory and uses indecision to thwart it at every turn.]

In war there is no substitute for victory.”

“There are some who, for varying reasons, would appease Red China. [Or Islamic terrorists or Communists world-wide.] They are blind to history’s clear lesson, for history teaches with unmistakable emphasis that appeasement but begets new and bloodier war. It points to no single instance where this end has justified that means, where appeasement has led to more than a sham peace. Like blackmail, it lays the basis for new and successively greater demands until, as in blackmail, violence becomes the only other alternative.

“Why,” my soldiers ask of me, “surrender military advantages to an enemy in the field?” I could not answer.”
