All the top generals and a retired Secretary of State say we cannot defeat ISIS without our troops.Obama continues to say no way. Instead we'll use the same Iraqi troops who ran from ISIS last month plus train people in Syria who Obama was mocking just last month. I still say after the election we'll have thousands of American troops in Iraq and possibly Syria. Worst president in history!!!
Gen. Dempsey fairly well confirmed my post from yesterday. We are going to war again.Obama will lie to us until after the election. When we go we need to stay until every known ISIS member is killed .No negotiations. We need to end this once and for all. But I doubt Obama will do that.
Obama says we will now train the " bankers, farmers,and doctors " in Syria to become a fighting force that will defeat ISIS. We spent billions and trained Iraqis for ten years to be a fighting force. They began running away as soon as ISIS crossed into Iraq. Why should we expect anything different in Syria?
Obama said the other day there is no way the U.S. will put troops on the ground in the Mid East .Yet today the joint chiefs of staff chairman testified that under certain conditions we would. A competent administration gets everybody on board with their talking points before they send them out to speak. And you dont tell the enemy there are certain things you will not do. Especially barbarians like the ISIS threat we now face.
Obama continues the charade of no boots on the ground, although we now have over 1500 in Iraq.Once the election is over Obama will increase that by thousands. Wouldn't be surprised to see Special Forces in Syria then too.
Jason Chaffetz now saying he and others were aware last year of the allegations of the State Dept . getting rid of Benghazi documents unfavorable to Hillary. The hearings starting Wednesday should be interesting.
Would have expected Obama to get a bump in the polls after his speech the other night. Instead about 70% say his strategy will fail. Two and a half years as a lame duck is a long time.LOL
The republicans have developed a knack for losing .Should have won the senate in 2010 and the presidency in 2012.But they expertly put forth candidates the public didn't want. In seven weeks we'll find out if they learned their lesson.
I have no patience with pure silliness .I never read anything from Junior, and perhaps you haven't noticed, but I seldom bother with you.
Just another example of the incompetency of this administration. They cant even get their talking points together. Kerry and the White House contradicting each other is inexcusable. They should be working closely on this major problem.Quite evident they are not.
In almost every category polled, Obama has historically bad numbers . Mid term elections are decided in large measure by a presidents popularity .Most dems running this year dont want to be seen anywhere near Obama. And also trying to distance themselves from his policies that they once supported. A large number of them will be unemployed when the new congress convenes in January.
We'll come back. Always do. Carter screwed things up pretty badly and Bush left the country in a mess. We'd have recovered even sooner this time if Obama had spent more time on the golf course. LOL
If he comes on tv talking about "managing " ISIS again, his numbers will be in the low 20's by next week. But his problem now is majority of Americans dont trust what he says about anything now.
More and more pollsters and talking heads are predicting a republican" wave" on Nov. 4th .Obama is causing one of the great political defeats in our country. Took America a while to figure this guy out but they did.
Bush received bad intel on wmd's and got us into a war we should have never been in. But he didn't lie. Obama told us we could keep our own insurance and doctor when he knew it was a lie .Being wrong and lying are not the same. Now pour yourself another big tumbler of koolade.
We are not a third world country ( yet ). I wish Obama no harm.He'll be gone in two years. He'll be regarded as one of our worst presidents ever. That's good enough for me.
Surviving trio says Chief CIA officer in Tripoli refused to give permission to attempt a rescue.Unclear if anybody above him was involved. After a 30 minute delay they tried a rescue without permission but were too late. They also knew nothing about a video until they later arrived in Germany.
