Underestimated Or Ignored

Barack Obama claims that his regime underestimated the rise of ISIS and overestimated the ability of the Iraqi military to fend off that group. Obama made these statements in a 60 Minutes interview.

George W Bush warned that leaving Iraq before the place was stabile and not having a small force in place would result in some group filling the void. He was pretty clear this would happen.

Mitt Romney reiterated this during the debates with Barack Obama. Obama laughed him off.

It is now obvious that Bush and Romney were correct and Obama was wrong. But did Obama underestimate?

Probably not. He is a narcissist and thinks he knows everything. He was aware of what Bush said and Romney told him point blank what would happen so he knew.

He just chose to either ignore or not believe the information. I believe he ignored it because he did not want to give any credit to Bush or Romney. He did not want to say that they were right because he was supposed to be so smart.

He ignored it and now we are using our military to clean up the mess he made. It is pretty telling that the man who said that we could not solve the issues there with our military is now saying we need to use our military to solve issues there.

He should have listened and with ears that big he certainly was able to hear.

Perhaps he was unable because of where he keeps his head…

State Run Media In The US

In a free country the media would publish stories that it produced and it would not take into account the feelings of the people affected (except to protect people like minors or to clear up errors in facts). This is particularly true with regard to politicians. The media are the fourth estate and a free press (now all media) ensures that public servants are held accountable.

This is only true and only works if the media are unbiased and unhampered.

Unfortunately we have a biased media and that media, at least those reporting on the president, are hampered as the White House receives the reports from the press pool and distributes them.

This is not ideal but the White House has the ability to shoot the press pool reports to a large media audience and this is a task the press pool can’t (or won’t) accomplish. All in all this would not be bad since the White House has the resources.

The rub though, is the White House reads the reports first and has, according to some reporters, demanded that the press change the reports.

This is not how a free press or free society works. The White House should not be reading these prior to release and if there are errors noted after release then the White House can release its own statement. Items found to be in error can be corrected by the media.

We have a state controlled media with regard to the White House press pool. What happens if the reporter refuses to change the report? Does the White House refuse to forward it? Does the White House hold it until it can devise a spin or until the information loses its impact?

Perhaps it is time for the press pool to devise its own distribution framework so that the White House is not involved.

This way the White House does not influence or control the media (any more than a Democrat controlled White House already does).

Shouldn’t Obama Return His Peace Prize?

During the last presidential campaign Mitt Romney was portrayed as a war monger stuck in the past while Obama was portrayed as the hip young guy in a new era where everyone loves us. No aggression necessary because Obama is well loved around the world. Elect Romney and you get more war and poor relations with the Russians and the rest of the world as well.

Romney was absolutely correct about Russia and Russian leader Putin keeps rubbing Obama’s nose in his excrement just to prove it.

Romney was correct about the consequences of removing troops from the Middle East (as was George W. Bush).

Romney was correct about Syria and now we are seeing just how correct.

Romney was the war monger but it is Obama who is conducting all the military operations. It was not that long ago (during the campaign) that Joe Biden (Idiot, DE) claimed that Romney wants to go to war with Syria. Elect that man and you will be at war in Syria.

He [Romney] said it was a mistake to end the war in Iraq and bring all of our warriors home,” Biden told an audience in York, Penn., on September 2, 2012. “He said it was a mistake to set an end date for our warriors in Afghanistan and bring them home. He implies by the speech that he’s ready to go to war in Syria and Iran. National Review

Well, a new play on an old joke, they told me if I voted for Romney we would be at war in Syria and they were right. It is the Nobel Peace Prize recipient Barack Hussein Obama who is waging war in Syria.

I do not disagree with attacking terrorists but then again I never thought we should have stopped. Barack Obama and his progressive toadies were the ones talking about holding hands and signing hippie love songs while Romney was painting a picture of reality. Romney was absolutely correct and there is no way to refute that fact.

Obama previously said the fighter jets now being used in Syria were outdated and unnecessary.

Romney was not the ideal candidate but he was leaps and bounds better than Obama. Romney had a grasp of what was going on in the world and has real world experience. If he had been elected it is highly likely that the economy would be much better and we would not have these conflicts and foreign policy nightmares.

The world knows that Republican administrations are strong on national security and will ensure America is safe no matter what it takes. The evil doers around the world know they can pick fights when liberals are in charge because liberals have no spine.

Obama accepted a Nobel Peace Prize that was nothing more than a participation trophy because he never did anything to warrant the thing. He was given the prize based on expectations. He said he was going to make peace in the world and they believed him so rather than wait and see they gave him the prize in advance.

Looks like they were wrong as Obama has waged war and has not given us peace.

Perhaps Obama should return that peace prize.

They can replace it with a dunce cap.

UPDATE: Maybe he won’t have a choice in the matter…

When Bush Did It The Left Went Nuts

Let me start off by saying I agree with bombing ISIS and any other terror group and I think the US should keep it up. I would say to bomb them back to the Stone Age but since they already live in that era I say bomb them back to before they existed. I have no problem with attacking them where they live rather than waiting for them to come here. I have no problem with preemptive strikes.

But I am not the problem here because I never held the view that we should not attack them.

Barack Obama and ALL the Democrats who opposed George Bush did though. They derided Bush for waging war in Iraq when they claimed Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11 and never attacked us. Afghanistan was the good war, they said.

So during Bush’s terms we had Code Pink and the rest of the anti war crowd along with the Democrats screaming about Bush’s War and George Bush attacking a nation that never attacked us, blah, blah.

Barack Obama arrived on the scene fresh from his community organizing state and US Senate gigs to claim the mantle of anti war hero and to stop George Bush’s illegal wars.

The US, along with coalition partners, has begun bombing ISIS and other terror groups in Syria. Syria has never attacked us and ISIS has never attacked out country. Yes, they murdered some Americans but they did not come to our home nation and attack us. Do I think we should avenge their deaths? Certainly but then again, I am not the problem.

The problem lies with those who were so vocal in their opposition to George Bush who now remain silent as their messiah attacks an enemy in a sovereign nation, one that did not attack us. The problem lies with those very groups who said we should not be at war and who told us to try and understand the other guy’s side of things.

Where are these groups now? Where is Nancy Pelosi? Where is Harry Reid? Where are the protest groups that were so up in arms about the Iraq war? Where are these people when Barack Obama is basically doing the same thing they attacked Bush for?

They are curiously silent on the matter.

George Bush got Congressional approval before he waged war and Barack Obama did not. George Bush told us exactly what would happen if we announced the date we were leaving and pulled completely out of the region and what he said would happen, did.

Barack Obama was against the war in Iraq and he campaigned on ending it. Barack Obama campaigned on what he perceived to be the lawless and unconstitutional acts of Bush and now he is doing the very things he campaigned against.

These people are hypocrites and it would do the nation well for them to lose their jobs in November (for those up for reelection). Barack Obama is a disgrace to this nation. Is he doing the right thing now? I think it is right to attack the enemy but I always did.

He did not. This is what happens when you have a progressive Alinskyite with no work experience, no military experience (and who actually loathes the military) and no real life experience running things.

Community organizers are rabble rousers, not leaders.

The left remains silent because it is their messiah who is doing the things they previously opposed.

We need to rally as a nation while we are at war but that does not mean we can’t question the integrity of the leader who took us to war.

If the nation had questioned that integrity during the campaign we might not have a hypocrite and first class amateur running things now.

And in all likeliness there would be no need for more war because the enemies would fear us.

No one fears Obama because he lacks anything resembling manhood and he is certainly not a warrior.

Hillary Clinton Has Always Been A Radical

Saul Alinsky was an ends justifies the means person and his Rules for Radicals basically spelled that out. Hillary Clinton was a disciple of Alinsky and wrote her college thesis about him.

She had a close relationship with him, sought him out, communicated with him and he had strong feelings about Hillary so much so his secretary opened a letter from Hillary so she would not have to wait two weeks (Alinsky was away) for a response if there was an urgent matter.

Hillary downplayed her adoration of Alinsky and claims she did not agree with some of his tactics and ideas. In her book she claimed that those differences led to a parting of ways in 1969 just before she went to law school.

Letters that have been recently released show that Clinton did not part ways in 1969 (over differences or any other reason) and that she remained in touch with him up until his death in 1972.

The aforementioned letter was written by Hillary in 1971 and she expressed that she survived law school and was in California and hoped that she could meet up with Alinsky should he happen to visit the state. Her letter stated that she “would love to see [Alinsky]” and for him to let her know if there was any chance of the two getting together.

The words in the letter hardly paint a picture of a person who parted ways over differences. Instead they paint a picture of a person who was an admirer. Keeping in touch with glowing words is hardly evidence of a parting of ways.

Hillary Clinton is a radical and she will say or do whatever she has to in order to obtain and keep power. Hillary lives by Alinsky’s 12 rules and the only reason she did not win the Democratic nomination (and likely the presidency) is because Barack Obama was better at using the rules than Hillary was. Well, he was at least as good and he had darker pigmentation and spoke more eloquently than she did.

Make no mistake, all these left wing radicals follow these rules and they do so in order to take control of your life. While Alinsky might have discussed the haves and the have nots and the imbalance between them the one thing that is overlooked is the elitists. They are the ones who lord over the haves and the have nots and bring some kind of calm to the storm the radicals stir up.

Clinton and Obama are two of those elitist radicals and their goal is to pit us against each other and to lord over us.

Hillary was and still is a radical and while she whitewashed her radical past and adoration of Alinsky the recently released letters paint a much different picture, one that all the whitewash in the world cannot cover.
