Cheney re Obama: Rarely has a U.S. president been so wrong about so much at the expense of so many.
As the terrorists of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) threaten Baghdad, thousands of slaughtered Iraqis in their wake, it is worth recalling a few of President Obama's past statements about ISIS and al Qaeda. "If a J.V. team puts on Lakers' uniforms that doesn't make them Kobe Bryant" (January 2014). "[C]ore al Qaeda is on its heels, has been decimated" (August 2013). "So, let there be no doubt: The tide of war is receding" (September 2011).
Rarely has a U.S. president been so wrong about so much at the expense of so many. Too many times to count, Mr. Obama has told us he is "ending" the wars in Iraq and Afghanistanas though wishing made it so. His rhetoric has now come crashing into reality. Watching the black-clad ISIS jihadists take territory once secured by American blood is final proof, if any were needed, that America's enemies are not "decimated." They are emboldened and on the march.
Obama has a doctrine? Phhhttt
I know, lets all ask perky Katie what it is.
I understand he's not the most popular political figure in the country, but Bush isn't winning any style points or doing the country any favors by being a gentleman and keeping his mouth shut. Its crunch time.
The liberals that voted for the SOB will say it was all Bush’s fault and praise O’bammer for getting out.
Love that, so well said.
Nope. Americans are more concerned about their free abortions, free birth control, homosexual marriage, and other government freebies than they are about finishing off some terrorist network.
My exact thoughts, what doctrine?????????????????????
Skeeter, I agree with that to a certain extent. I will have to tell you it sounds somewhat like “It’s Bush’s fault!” when I read it though.
Should Bush be speaking up? I believe so. If he does it all the time, it really does open the door to past presidents simply neutering good presidents when they come along.
Look at what McCain did to Bush first term. It was just plain lunacy, and I’m not a big Bush fan by any means.
A president has to be given space. This one has had his space, and it is time for someone of stature to explain what they see as potential treason. Perhaps Bush is the guy to deliver that.
The problem once again, is that then the Democrats scream treason every time future good presidents go to the restroom.
Honestly, I don’t know what the answer to this is.
Obama is so far out of bounds these days, someone on the Left must have noticed. In the best case, leading Democrats would out this guy for what he is.
Evidently those days are gone. Goldwater refused to support Nixon and he was done. Now we can’t even get treason addressed by the Democrat counterpart to Goldwater.
Brit Hume last night said something to the effect that Obama is unbelievably incompetent.
Actually that seems like an understatement.
i didn’t know he had a doctrine either except weakening the military, weakening the economy, promoting homosexuality, bowing before any foreign power seeking our destruction, blaming bush and playing golf,
oh yeah, did i mention playing golf,
Obama’s Likes: Islam, Homosexualism, Smoking Dope, Playing Golf
Obama’s Dislikes: America, America’s Immigration Laws, Americans
Obama’s Doctrine: Promote Islam, Homosexualism, Anti-Americanism, Illegal Immigration
Will the media mock Obama’s premature gloating and incorrect evaluations the way they mocked Bush’s “Mission Accomplished” sign? Of course not.
Sitting on the doctrine of the Bey
watching the Islamic tide roll on in ...
Yep. And all the gloves should be off. Completely off. To hell with decorum anymore.
The future of the country and every individual American citizen's safety is at stake.
why assume this is not going the way obama wants it?
he wants a worldwide caliphate. he’s doing cartwheels. he’s jubilant. he’s helping bring forth the mahdi.
If it’s done, it essentially needs to read like an indictment. As many as possible counts need to be documented and nailed.
Individual actions and their ramifications need to be addressed.
One more problem with Bush doing something like this, is that if you do it, you have to go for the family jewels. No pussy-footing around will do.
I’m not sure the guy has that in him. And if he doesn’t, at some point he backs down and Obama looks immaculate for the duration of his life.
He would have had to have a doctrine to collapse. Unless we are talking about his golf game.
The Obama Doctrine?
That’s an easy one.....on the green in two
I crack myself up sometimes.
I really miss the days when our government and electorate were comprised of adults.
But I have to guess that Bush has really strong feelings about what he sees Obama doing with what he and the US military accomplished in Iraq and Afghanistan. Maybe not.
“American freedom will not be secured by empty threats, meaningless red lines, leading from behind, appeasing our enemies, abandoning our allies, or apologizing for our great nationall hallmarks to date of the Obama doctrine.”
Indeed, an epic and very dangerous failure.
Will the media mock Obamas premature gloating and incorrect evaluations the way they mocked Bushs Mission Accomplished sign? Of course not.
Despite Bush’s note being correct within context, and Obama’s being a crafted lie - even to the extent of trying to obscure an attack on a US mission resulting in the murder of an Ambassador.
To know Obama, one needs to know his puppet masters.
This "Administration" is a joke, but the joke, unfortunately, is on us.
The Rope A Dope Doctrine
Obama has been an absolute catastrophe for America.
For the Clown Prince: arrest, imprisoned, water-boarded and exiled. Justice. One can dream...
Long Live Cheney
I wish all of these big-government globalists would get the hell out of the public eye for good.
The Obama Doctrine is to facilitate the creation of the revived Islamic Caliphate, using the resources of the American government which he leads.
Everything he has done since 1/20/2009 has fit a pattern of enabling radical Islam to gain power, prestige and territory, all under the guise of fighting the War on Terror.
The only terrorists he sees is people like us, that love this country and that are wise to him and his ilk.
He has proven his traitorous intent toward this nation.The “trade” of the five Taliban prisoners was another prime example of his perfidy.
For ISIS to have this kind of success is only because he will refuse to fight them. Because he wants them to succeed.
At the very least we should be bombing the convoys of our former equipment that ISIS is spiriting away to Syria. But hey, why do that when he wanted to arm the rebels fighting Assad anyway. Now ISI has hundreds of billions of dollars in cash and gold, trucks, Humvees, ammo, weapons, and tanks that can used for Al Qaeda.
He folded on Syria, he folded on Iran, and he will do nothing about ISIS. All part of the plan.
When are people going to wake up?
I think Bush is smart enough to shut up....we would be hearing the Choir sing its rendition of “ Bush’s Fault” in B flat if he said anything
Excerpt-only copyright restrictions apply down thread as well. Thanks.
Thank you, thank you, thank you! God bless you, Dick Cheney, for calling an assclown an assclown. Glad somebody has the guts.
Dear libtards. We are conservatives. We don’t hate Obama because he is black. We don’t CARE what color he is. The only thing that matters is that he hates this country and is trying to destroy it in his image.
We hate him for that. And we hate you for giving him the power to do it. I can’t speak for every conservative, but that’s the way this one sees it. PERIOD
Obama Doctrine: Do Nothing. If pressed, go play golf. If all turns out well, claim credit. If the SHTF, blame Bush.
Because that's what happens when a radical Muslim is disguise is "elected" POTUS.
"Especially important is the warning to avoid conversations with the demon. We may ask what is relevant but anything beyond that is dangerous. He is a liar. The demon is a liar. He will lie to confuse us. But he will also mix lies with the truth to attack us. "
This is good:
“In one Arab capital, a senior official pulled out a map of Syria and Iraq. Drawing an arc with his finger from Raqqa province in northern Syria to Anbar province in western Iraq, he said, “They will control this territory. Al Qaeda is building safe havens and training camps here. Don’t the Americans care?”
“Our president doesn’t seem to. Iraq is at risk of falling to a radical Islamic terror group and Mr. Obama is talking climate change. Terrorists take control of more territory and resources than ever before in history, and he goes golfing.
Cheney is like a founding father.

Doctrine? He had a doctrine?
Once is happenstance, twice is coincidence, the third time it’s enemy action.
Obama is not stupid or incompetent.
he seems to be doing what is best for
the people of Indonesia,
the country where he grew up
