Skip to comments.President Obama needs to focus on how the United States can meet global challenges
Posted on 08/30/2014 8:33:26 AM PDT by Mariner
RESIDENT OBAMAS acknowledgment that we dont have a strategy yet in Syria understandably attracted the most attention after his perplexing meeting with reporters Thursday. But his restatement of the obvious was not the most dismaying aspect of his remarks. The presidents goal, to the extent he had one, seemed to be to tamp down all the assessments of gathering dangers that his own team had been issuing over the previous days.
This argument with his own administration is alarming on three levels.
The first has to do with simple competence. One can only imagine the whiplash that foreign leaders must be suffering. They heard U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power denounce Russia as today they open a new front. Russias force along the border is the largest it has beenthe mask is coming off. An hour later, Mr. Obama implicitly contradicted her: I consider the actions that weve seen in the last week a continuation of whats been taking place for months now its not really a shift.

First word Freudian slip. Heh.
“President Obama needs to focus on how the United States can meet global challenges”
Gee, shouldn’t he have done that the day he took office?
President Obama needs to attempt to focus on how the United States can meet global climate change and discombobulation while enriching warmists and condemning evil “deniers”.
That won’t happen.
Obamas brain was fried by drugs, long ago.
In his “Dreams” book, Obama proudly admitted to his youthful enthusiastic use of drugs.
Simple words such as to and people are pronounced tuh and folks respectively.
Obama has spoken no ideas that will be retained in the history of great speeches.
Obamas public speaking is restricted to a carefully controlled audience where the act of BOOing is forcefully prohibited.
Obamas brain is useless without a teleprompter to keep him on a topic.
Without a teleprompter, Obama play-acts out a Devil made me do that, shuffle and jive Role in a fake Southern accent.
Without an advisor to tell him what to do, Obama is terrified to go it alone.
Obamas lack of a strong Foreign Policy advisor accounts for Obamas obvious mental confusion in Foreign Policy and Military matters.
Obama follows orders from his advisors domestically, and thus has no problem going it alone domestically because his top aides tell him what to do, and then defend Obama flawlessly.
Obama chose, at the request of his advisors to negotiate with terrorists with the deal he made to release the GITMO FIVE in order to beef up ISIS at an opportune time for them.
Without Valerie Jarrett to write Obamas speeches, and tell Obama what to do, the drugged stupor that Obama was in during his 2012 TV Denver Debate with Romney would be a monthly drug stupor spectacle.
As Obamas fragile administration continues to fail, Obama is sent out of the Oval Office more frequently to perform simple tasks, such as Shuffle and Jive Role speeches at controlled rallies or controlled Democrat Donation functions. or Golf games with a tightly controlled guest list.
Obamas recent admission that after 5.5 years of on-the-job-training to be the Commander in Chief, he still does not have a strategy for Americas number one enemy since 9-11-2001: Militant Muslims.
This was exactly what Obamas advisors have tried so hard to avoid: showing the American Public that Obama does not have the mental capacity to be the Commander in Chief of the United States Military.
Obama will resign ONLY if Harry Reid tells Valerie Jarrett that Obama must resign for the good of the Democrat Party.
What is good for the Country is of NO concern to Reid or Jarrett.
They endorsed the guy twice.
Its late in the day to say he’s not up to that 3:00 AM phone call.
Whatever the Russophobic crowd on FR says about Putin, there is no denying people know where the man stands.
People are still figuring out Obama.
Obama is a lawyer. He’s trained to argue and give presentations. Develop strategy? Be a leader? Be an effective and efficient executive? He’s not trained for that. Just a reminder.....Hillary Clinton is a lawyer, too.
Then why do the Russophiles try to convince us that the man stands elsewhere? Simple misdirection?
Øbama is an enemy islamist.
Disorder with more to follow.
Obama needs to start presidenting immediately!
Even a cursory examination and peeking behind political rhetoric and into the reality of the experiences and achievements of the candidate might have been important to assuring the nation's future role in a dangerous world.
"It behooves every man who values liberty of conscience for himself, to resist invasions of it in the case of others; or their case may, by change of circumstances, become his own. It behooves him, too, in his own case, to give no example of concession, betraying the common right of independent opinion . . . ." --Thomas Jefferson to Benjamin Rush, 1803.
"The basis of our governments being the opinion of the people, the very first object should be to keep that right; and were it left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers or newspapers without a government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter." --Thomas Jefferson to Edward Carrington, 1787.
Contrast the 200-year history of America with that of every totalitatian regime, and future generations may be able to mark this point in our history as a turning point for reclaiming freedom.
"Our liberty cannot be guarded but by the freedom of the press, nor that be limited without danger of losing it." --Thomas Jefferson to John Jay, 1786.
"No experiment can be more interesting than that we are now trying, and which we trust will end in establishing the fact, that man may be governed by reason and truth. Our first object should therefore be, to leave open to him all the avenues to truth. The most effectual hitherto found, is the freedom of the press. It is, therefore, the first shut up by those who fear the investigation of their actions."(Underlining added for emphasis) --Thomas Jefferson to John Tyler, 1804. ME 11:33
“Obama needs to start presidenting immediately!”
It’s way too late for that. Only a new president can articulate and prosecute a reasoned foreign policy. With Obama, the die is cast and even if he were to execute a 180 immediately, it would be of no consequence.
Hey, you stupid b*stards at the WaPo, you know damn good and well that if Obama was running for a third term, you’d endorse him again. Get lost you filthy mfer’s!
Thus now Obama must PROVE he's a real CinC and can really direct an army.
God help us.
Resident Obama does not have a plan. He does not even know who to ask for a plan. They could send him a grocery list and call it a plan, for all he’d know. Resident Obama does not have a clue.
America would be better off if Berry spent the remainder of his term on the golf course and in the bathhouse. Why would they want him to focus on events when everything he touches turns into a threat to America or a disaster?
He’s only good at directing people in the Chicago hood to chant and hold pre-printed signs.
