Obama: In Way Over His Head



over
If ever there was proof that Dear Leader Barack Hussein Obama is in over his head with regard to world politics, this current Syria situation illustrates it. First, he said “he” would go it alone, would have “his military” attack Syria for crossing the red line he drew in August 2012.

Obama then nominated, in December 2012, John Kerry, a colossal fool, as his Secretary of State, replacing another colossal fool, Hillary Clinton. Kerry, last Friday, said “America intends to act” in reference to Obama’s threat to attack Syria without congressional approval. Kerry also said that the president had the right to take action “no matter what Congress does”.

Now, it seems, that Obama is seeking Congressional approval for his actions. Perhaps someone reminded him of what he said in 2007: “The president does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation.”

Can anyone say “flip-flop?” So now where do we stand? As Charles Krauthammer said of Obama’s actions, “… this is sort of amateur hour.”

In Damascus, the state run newspaper, Al Thawra, said that Obama’s actions are “the start of the historic American retreat.” It continued, saying Obama had hesitated because of a “sense of implicit defeat and the disappearance of his allies,” and he fears that an intervention could become “an open war.” Faisal Mekdad, Syria’s deputy foreign minister, said “… it is clear there was a sense of hesitation and disappointment in what was said by President Barack Obama yesterday. And it is also clear there was a sense of confusion, as well.”

This from that world power, Syria! Mocking Obama. Mocking the USA.

And Vice President Joe Biden isn’t much better! He said, in 2007: “The president has no authority to unilaterally attack Iran, and if he does, as Foreign Relations Committee chairman, I will move to impeach.”

Jim Clayton’s excellent article also cites some examples of Obama’s actions.

But hey, that’s what a majority of US citizens voted for. Are they chagrined? Naaah, Democrats don’t care, and most Obama voters can’t even read, so they don’t know what a fool Obama is making of himself and the country. I only hope the USA survives him.

But that’s just my opinion

  1. This is why we need to stay out of this. I’ve heard comments on “why it is necessary to go in” and here is the rebuttal

    1)
    “We need to stabilize the Middle East.” Any argument of what we need to
    stabilize falls on deaf ears. The invasion of Iraq was supposed to
    stabilize the Middle East. That worked out well, didn’t it? The Middle
    East is completely falling apart. These are a tribal people living about
    two thousand years behind the times. We aren’t going to stabilize
    anything. This is not Eastern Europe. It’s Islam.

    2) “But they may have WMDs and terrorist havens that will be used against us including nuclear capability”

    Valid point. Here are the countries that fall in that catagory. Saudi
    Arabia, Iraq, Iran, North Africa, Libya and anywhere else the words Arab
    Muslim are used with population including places in the United States.
    Maybe we should invade all of them? While we let our own borders stay
    porous.

    How about removing all political correctness in the
    FBI/CIA/NSA and recreate the most vicious special ops guys on earth and
    go after specifics with no mercy–continuously. Maybe take a lesson or
    two from Israel instead of chastising them.

    3) “But
    innocent people were killed.” Since when do we really care. That is knee
    jerk propaganda to gain support. If we were concerned about that we
    would have invaded Darfur and Rwanda. And many other places. We don’t.

    We
    neither have the financial resources to continue to police the world
    and solve tribal mentality problems. Secure our border, quit outsourcing
    so we are independent in manufacturing, become energy independent and
    viciously target and strike at those who are actual threats to us now or
    who are planning to be in the future.
