Skip to comments.Liberals get it: Obama is hopeless on national security
Posted on 01/14/2015 5:40:50 PM PST by SJackson
President Obamas non-appearance in Paris for a rally in the wake of the attacks there is a rare moment when liberal elites have no excuse for their icon. There is no way for them to defend his refusal to stand, literally shoulder to shoulder, with world leaders in defense of liberal satirists. When youve lost Jon Stewart (Je suis to be kidding me), you have gone beyond the pale.
U.S. President Barack Obama pauses while speaking about immigration reform during a visit to Del Sol High School in Las Vegas, Nevada November 21, 2014. Obama imposed the most sweeping immigration reform in a generation on Thursday, easing the threat of deportation for about 4.7 million undocumented immigrants and setting up a clash with Republicans.

In liberal foreign policy circles, this is just the latest embarrassing, infuriating instance in which they see the president giving fuel to conservatives who deplore him as clueless about the jihadist threat. The latest to register horror is Beltway veteran Leslie H. Gelb, who fumes: It wasnt just because President Obamas or Vice President Bidens absence was a horrendous gaffe. More than this, it demonstrated beyond argument that the Obama team lacks the basic instincts and judgment necessary to conduct U.S. national security policy in the next two years. Its simply too dangerous to let Mr. Obama continue as iswith his current team and his way of making decisions.
Well, yes, but of course, this ignores the real problem: It demonstrated beyond argument that Obama lacks the basic instincts and judgment necessary to conduct U.S. national security policy in the next two years. Its simply too dangerous to let Mr. Obama continue as is . . .

Good, then they won’t re-elect him in 20....oh, right.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
Hopeless or not, he'll be supported
There, fixed it.
Morally corrupt liberals are smart enough to know that they’re at the top of the Muzzie headchopper list.
What will they say If & When we’re attacked in NCY or DC or LA or anywhere else on a scale like Paris or larger? What excuses will they make for the Boy King then?
Has he EVER been interested in our national security?
Hey, BOR, Megyn and Sean, reload and give us your interpretation.
Two things the left is horrified to do, speak ill of Islam and speak ill of Obama. Oh wait, it’s same anyway.
The final paragraph is a zinger stinger.
It is going to leave a mark. History will not be kind to Obama.
“What excuses will they make for the Boy King then?”
They won’t make EXCUSES. The NEXT 9/11 will be squarely laid at the feet of President Bush or The Tea Party Radicals.
Consult your program, Man! ;)
Nah. They don’t get it. Read the comments at the link.
Obama has said repeatedly that he sides with the Muslims!
That march was not pro-Muslim.
Not to worry. In a week or two they will have forgotten all about this.
Is Journalista Rubin’s nascent self-protectionist mechanism finally kicking in?
Too bad, we don’t need neurotic marxists like her breeding.
The final paragraph is a zinger stinger.
“So the liberal elites, after six years, arrived at a painful truth: Obama is entirely unfit to lead at a critical juncture in history. If only they had recognized this before they voted for him a second time.”

The little Gerbels-like spokes-persons will simply blame it on Bush or radical Republicans or whatever BS they want, and NBC, SEEBS, ABC and NYT and WasPost will dutifully sing the party line.
Reality does not matter.
I would disagree - they know exactly what they are doing and don't give a flying fig what anyone thinks as they are sticking to the plan.
Its simply too dangerous to let Mr. Obama continue as iswith his current team and his way of making decisions.
This could have been said five years ago however, nothing was done about it then - nothing will be done about it now.
