Patton: The Most Embarrassing President of My Lifetime

By Doug Patton

“Speak softly and carry a big stick.” — Teddy Roosevelt
“The buck stops here.” — Harry Truman
“I didn’t set a red line.” — Barack Obama

Barack Obama is, without question, the most embarrassing president of my lifetime — and that is saying something, since my life so far has encompassed 12 presidencies, some of which have brought a lot of embarrassment to the nation. Even Richard Nixon, with his Watergate scandal, Jimmy Carter, with his malaise, and Bill Clinton, with his lewd behavior in the Oval Office, could not top this president for pure, unadulterated disgrace.

Of course, in Obama’s case, it is not a matter of personal scandal like it was for Clinton. By telling the world a year ago that he was drawing a red line in the hot desert sands of Syria — that red line being the use of chemical weapons — he created the debacle that currently threatens to engulf the Middle East. He blustered at the time that if the regime of Bashar al-Assad crosses that red line, there will be a price to pay. No one yet knows what that price will be, but from the current discussion, it appears that it will involve the destruction of at least three camels, four sheep, a half-dozen goats and an abandoned aspirin factory. That oughta show ‘em!

What it will do, in all likelihood, is unify the Islamic crazies in the Middle East and turn Assad into a regional hero, emboldening him to attack Israel secure in the knowledge that the United States has no stomach for a wider war.

Congressional offices on Capitol Hill are reporting phone calls coming in at a rate of more than 200 to 1 against approving Obama’s plan to attack Syria. Republican and Democrats alike are being bombarded with negative responses from their constituents. Still, there are those among the insulated legislative class — John McCain, Lindsay Graham, John Boehner, etc. — who have not gotten the message that the American people are about as enthusiastic about Obama’s proposed war plans as they are about undergoing a quadruple root canal. In fact the Senate Foreign Relations Committee voted to approve a resolution to allow Obama to use force.

Meanwhile, Facebook postings from members of our military are appearing with sentiments like this: “I didn’t join the Marine Corps to fight for al-Qaeda in a Syrian civil war.”

Yet there was the ever-arrogant Barack Obama, standing at the podium in Stockholm on Wednesday, embarrassing himself yet again (and, by extension, the fools who elected him) by announcing in response to a reporter’s question about his crumbling credibility, “I didn’t set a red line. The world set a red line.”

Obama is a symbol of much of today’s generation, which accepts no responsibility for anything. Therefore, when something goes wrong among his cockamamie plans, it must be someone else’s fault. Usually, of course, it would be George Bush’s fault, but even Obama couldn’t bring himself to tell that one again, not in this case. No, this time it’s the whole world’s fault. And Congress. And America. It’s American credibility that will suffer, he told the world, not his. Unbelievable.

The questions that need to be asked are these: What is the national security interest of the United States of America in attacking Syria? Will our intervention accomplish anything more than assuaging the ego of an arrogant president who has no knowledge of military matters? Will the consequences for the wider region, and for the interests of the United States, be improved if we attack Syria? And the most frightening question: have we elected a president who so admires Islam and so hates Israel that he would deliberately aid al-Qaeda while provoking a brutal Arab tyrant to attack our tiny but crucial ally?

I fear the answers to these questions are as follows: none; no; no; and, unfortunately, yes.

    I’m finding myself posting more and more on your articles lately Doug, and this one is jsut a profound as the others. If you look at the Syrian situation and the full-court press being put on by the BHO administration for a strike, you see them talking out of both sides of their mouths, particluarly John “I was before it before I was against it” Kerry. He says that the extremists fighting the Assad regime will get stronger if we don’t strike, and later, that they’re not all bad guys. What? I am convinced that this is nothing more than Barry’s attempt at saving face after HE drew the red line. And oh by the way, he doesn’t speak for me or the others in the American majority who believe that intervention is not in the national security interest of the United States. Barry painted himself into this corner, not the American public. His “blame everybody else” mantra is disgusting. God Bless America.

      I am in total agreement as to the unfitness of this President to lead in times of peace, and definitely a danger in times of war. This President crossed the redline of self destruction years ago in College when he used and smoked chemicals which makes his ability to rationalize and think clearly a dangerous weapon in the hands of an irresponsible finger pointing child in a man’s body who cannot seem to put together any sort of program he can accept responsibility for like a real man, unless it is prduced in a golf handicapped shady venue of a golf course right after a beer conference. When the American people put this “over-educated beyond his ability to grasp reality” into power, they accomplished the equivalent of putting a loaded gun of our military into the hands of a child in a man’s body. My greatest fear is that we will go to war with a child finger on the trigger, who when things go bad, which happens at times in all wars,,,, will just play his blame game while American blood and treasure is spilled on the feckless reckless sands of Syria. This is no George Bush who had the wisdom to back off let the trained professional qualified generals lead the attack. This is an ego whose master does not dwell in its own house, but in the adulation of the crowd.

      Obama is no military qualified Colin Powell, nor a war time FDR. He is the ghost of a “throw the American People under the Bus to cover your backside” embarassing Bill Clinton who also claimed to be our first Black President. When he leads from behind in safety, it will be you and your military sons and daughters he pushes forward into the breach of danger. The last thing we need is a race card gambler who raises his bets with the lives of productive Americans, who he has shown time and time again an abilty to sacrifice at will, to promote his socialist agenda.

      “Avoid having your ego so close to your position that when your position falls, your ego goes with it.”
      Colin Powell

      This man is willing to put our fighting men and women in harms way to save face so he does not have to take personal responsibility for his words about crossing the red line. Now he holds the world accountable for his actions and still will consciously make a decision to allow members of our military to die in a war that has nothing to do with us just because he cannot swallow his pride. I have never seen a more callous, self absorbed, narcissistic, lunatic in my life.

      Obama has already put Americans in harms way in Bengazi and he didn’t have the courage to protect them. To him American soldiers are nothing but pawns on a chess board to be sacrificed like cannon fodder so he can save face and try for a third term.

      The Norwegian Nobel Committee has decided that the Nobel Peace Prize for 2009 is to be awarded to President Barack Obama for his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples. The Committee has attached special importance to Obama’s vision of and work for a world without nuclear weapons.

      Obama has as President created a new climate in international politics. Multilateral diplomacy has regained a central position, with emphasis on the role that the United Nations and other international institutions can play.

      I must encourage ALL OF AMERICA to take a moment to sit down, pull themselves up to the table and answer the most important questions they have ever been asked:

      1. Is America’s security as a sovereign nation at risk from Syria and the Rebel forces’ engaging in war with each other?

      2. Would a unilateral move by OBAMA going to an illegal WAR with Syria without Congress’s backing be an act of treason, or perhaps one worthy of IMPEACHMENT?

      3. If Congress was to vote to support WAR without PROOF of GUILT…what would you do?

      4. Would you seek to oust members of either party who voted to GO TO WAR without proof, or even to go to WAR period?

      Obviously there are other questions, but these to me are good for starters!

    I feel that he is deliberately trying to involve us in something that we should not be involved in unless those questions that you pose are truthfully answered. I say truthfully because this president is nothing but a liar and a cheat. Thank you for your very interesting article.

    Doug:

    Were you this wary about going into Iraq? Did you ask those questions at the bottom of the column about our foray into Iraq? I bet not.

    At least our current threats against Syria are based on facts and not fiction.

    You should be embarrassed. Citing Facebook posts? Really? Are you that desperate for content? And when has Obama or Hagel said he was going to put troops on the ground in Syria?

    Embarrassed? At least now you know how half (or more of) the country felt from 2001 to 2009, when the Texan village idiot was in the White House.

    Your columns are getting shorter and shorter on facts and longer on meaningless right wing prattle.

      At least you now know that your hero is lower than even George Bush.
      Obama is a liar. There are no “facts” that exit his mouth. Don’t you find it odd that somehow Obama knew all the “facts” within minutes of the Syrian attack, when he still can’t seem to figure out what happened in Benghazi months later. Nor does he care! Beyond the blatant lie of a youtube video inciting a riot. Americans were killed in that incident, while Obama slept and then hit the campaign trail, to spew more lies about what happened. Obama has been funneling weapons to his al Qaeda buddies all this time and our citizens in Libya paid the price of his treachery.
      But yeah, keep believing that the liar-in-chief would spoon feed you any truthful facts.
      Bush never lied about anything, unlike Obama, and fools like you are willing to start a world war on the word of an idiot who is not only dishonest but traitorous. Not to mention, the rest of the world is waiting to hear the facts, and once they are known then action can be taken. Not before.

      At the time of the Iraq war I remember reading in many places that there was a very large suspicion that the Weapons of Mass Destruction that just about everyone in the entire world believed Iraq had were shipped to Syria. So my question is, anyone know where Syria got these chemicals from? COuld it have been from Iraq during the build up to war?

      Hmmm…it is a fact that Saddam Hussein gassed some 5,000 Kurds. Why are the same people who were against the Iraq war now supporting this action?

      It is a fact that Saddam gave bonuses to the families of suicide bombers who targeted Westerners in other countries. It is a fact that he tried to have the senior Bush assassinated. But liberals don’t REALLY care about facts, or about the innocents who were gassed, either by Saddam or by Assad. No, they just want their guy to look a little more muscular and less of an amateur by rattling their swords on his behalf. But it is nice to have Kerry NOT blasting US soldiers for war crimes….

      Oh, and though Obama and Hagel haven’t said anything about “boots on the ground”, Kerry left it as a possibility in certain circumstances, such as if a chemical weapons cache were to fall into extremist hands. Oh, but then he changed the position just moments later. This is what happens when we have incompetent partisan hacks and community organizers in the White House.

      Do you even pay attention to history or do you just regurgitate MSNBC talking points? Did Saddam Hussein NOT use chemical weapons on his own people in years past? So what happened to them? They mysteriously disappeared when the US forces invaded? Hmmmmm……I know this takes a WHOLE LOT of playing “connect the dots”, but could they have been possibly moved to Syria? Elementary dear Watson! Also, I don’t seem to remember GWB opening his big yap and drawing red lines in the sand. I also remember him getting Congressional approval for engaging Iraq. Liberal heroes like Hillary & Kerry voted for that “foray into Iraq” according to my memory. Now is that the truth or will you just re-write history like most liberals I know?

      Just because Kerry said no troops doesn’t make it so. If this resolution passes then O&K have a complete right to put troops in harms way and Congress can’t stop them without 2/3 vote in both chambers, after the 60 or 90 days. (Judge Napolitano). I don’t trust O or Kerry or Biden or McCain nor Boehner on any of these lies, such as no troops.

      Also the estimated cost is 10′s of millions of dollars. The fact is they’ve already spent 10′s of millions of dollars (25 million) in a week and the shootin’ ain’t even started yet! What are they aiming to shoot 7 or 8 tomahawks?

      I knew it. I have been reading on at least 4 other lists and not once did I see anyone dumb enough to bring up Bush by comparing Iraq to Syria. But of course you Arillrunner drank the Kool-Aid. How can you compare the two wars? By the way the Dems were in on going to war in Iraq because of WMD. Do you remember that not only our intelligence but that of other countries agreed there were WMD. They had a lot of time to move those weapons and I believe they did. But I digress. Syria is NOT our war. I don’t know about you but I don’t want to see anymore coffins with our brave men and women in the military. I don’t want to see anymore amputees coming home from war and then not being taken care of by our government. They have suffered enough. I don’t want to go to war because we have an idiot running our country that drew a red line in the sand. Your President is nothing more than a community organizer. He is way over his head in this. No President with a brain would draw a line in the sand. What kind of grammar school games is he playing? Admit it! This guy of yours is a failure.

      Of course — how can you trust what Kerry or Obama say? Gosh, I remember the latter telling us that if we liked our insurance, we could keep it. Well, yesterday I received a letter from my insurance company telling me that because of the changes mandated by Obamacare, my premiums will be going up. I’m a 51_year old female in excellent health, and so I have a policy with a large deductible. But now I am being forced to pay for maternity care even though I’m past my fertile years, not to mention birth control, mental health and chemical abuse treatment…..hey, Obama, I can’t keep the insurance plan I liked, you liar!

      It would do you good to remember that between his father and himself, the Husseins were not above using Sarin, mustard gas, and other nerve agents against Shi’ites and Kurds in which thousands would die overnight. Nothing else in the world is known to kill up to or more than 100,000 people in less than 24 hours. Unless some powerful religious leader used persuasion for mass suicide… But not even Jim Jones got more than 100,000 to do that at the same time. Whether rushed out of the country by Saddam, or sold off by his money grubbing sons, at one point in time you can count on Saddam having had nerve agents and/or gas in his military supply.Just because they weren’t there by the time the US arrived there, really means little. It’s highly probable Iran and Syria benefited greatly from Iraq’s ‘missing’ gas and nerve agents. Otherwise you’d be someone who believed the woman really was cut in half by the magician…

      Just so we don’t let the WMD issue in Iraq drop because I’m way over up to here on Bush getting slammed, made the butt of jokes and called a liar about it, Saddam had 450 metric tons of yellow cake uranium. I don’t know what route it took, but it eventually ended up in Canada. While it’s low grade and not fissionable in its present state, it could easily have been made into suitcase sized dirty bombs and set off in high population centers all over our country. There were, indisputably, materials to create WMD in Saddam’s Iraq.

      Special note for arillrunner:

      Apparently your iGPS needs calibration as, while you were happily motoring along on the rainbow information highway in your iPrius, you made Right turn instead of the extreme Left turn you should have taken to get you to OFA, moveon.org or the Daily Kos. The reason for that, which you’ll want to blame on G. W. Bush, was actually a result of one of the two true things the current occupant of the Oval Office uttered, “I was just kidding about those shovel ready jobs, and the road signs never got put up. The other being, “I want to fundamentally transform the United States of America [from a shining city on a hill to a third world Socialist cesspool].” Also, since I know that being a Leftist troll interested in truth, justice, fairness, diversity and tolerance, you’ll take comfort in knowing that it wasn’t Sarah Palin who said, “I can see Russia from my house,” but rather Tina Fey on Saturday Night Live. Can’t really tell the difference, can you? That’s okay and understandable as it’s a guy thing.

      You’re really showing your pitiful IQ standing up for a President involved in Fast and Furious resulting in dead border guards, who saved his equally foul buddy Eric Holder who stopped the arrest and trial of the Black Panther blocking the voting place in Philadelphia and from his contempt of Congress charge, who funneled billions of dollars into the pockets of his friends with “shovel ready” solar companies and infrastructure improvements, cash for clunkers, who has a dead man’s social security number from a state he’s never been in, who applied for an educational loan stating he was a foreign student, who was raised and educated in his early years by Muslims, his bail out for unions and blocking the XL pipeline and the Bakken fields production, who blocked Boeing from moving their business to South Carolina, for funding money losing wind farms, who refuses to realize that “global climate change” is all smoke and mirrors based on forced numbers and ignorance of the earth’s cycles and has threatened to bankrupt the coal industry, who refuses to protect our borders from entry of illegal aliens, who has sued our states for trying to protect their borders and for requiring photo voter I D’s and states that try to clean up their voter records, who publically insults Israel with his pitiful “I have a lunch date with my wife” excuse, who had to bribe Congressional men and women for their votes for Obamacare, who watched our embassy being overrun and our ambassador murdered then went out the next day on a fund raising trip and par for his course denies that he said anything about a red line in the sand and the costs of medical care going up not being the fault of Obamacare, who has caused thousands of people to lose workplace hours or their jobs and blaming anyone and anything for everything he’s done, who has hidden everything about his life including education (which he lied about), birthplace and records of his work in Illinois where he lost his attorney license (along with his wife’s ). You’d deny he slit someone’s throat if there were witnesses, news reports and film of it.

      But none of it is his fault and all someone else’s doing. It’s gotten so bad that even Kenya is saying he was born in the United States.

      I can’t understand either why people with half a brain object to him sticking his feet on national treasure furniture and being one of the most arrogant, lying fakes to do everything he can do to ruin this countries reputation world wide to ever occupy the oval office.

      I never understood why Dubya was so hated. It was found later that there had been WMD but it was artillery casings used for gas, not yellow cake. Try as hard as the demos could, they were never able to pin the AWOL on him. Aside from the WMD, which the entire world was talking about as a fact, I’m not aware of any big lies that he told if you can believe that he was mislead like the rest of the world. I’ll admit I didn’t understand Iraq, but I didn’t understand Nam either. The only thing I can come up with is our passion to be the world’s police and moral force and the wars we get in to prove that we’re the nice guys, but isn’t that what this whole Syria thing about? Samey same Afghanistan?

      I guess I’ll have to go find a dunce hat and join the Texas Village Idiot group. At least Bush is able to prove his degree and no one ever questioned where he was born.

      Wasn’t it our dear leader that once said something to the effect that a person must have a reason to hide something? And natch he’s never told a lie just like George Washington.

    This is “our Barry” Chicago loves him sleaze and all. He was a fool as a community organizer so we moved him along the democratic path threw a distict that never elected a white, we taught him to be black mentored by Jackson, Farrakhan, Jones, Wright, Pfleger and other race baiters and he is now prepared to join them after being President in the “race baiting” festival of who can keep their constituents down the longest and enrich themselves while doing it. Gore, Jackson, Sharpton, Farrakhan, Dyson, Robinson, Clinton and Carter all are in the running but no one ever spills the beans on the scam it goes on endlessly the only losers are the blacks they serve, or don’t serve.

      What’s this “we” $hit joe I’ve voted against that a$$hole both times and it still didn’t help. Guess you folks who thought he’d make a great “pres” could have been blinded by the fog of the $hit he was handing out. Food stamps for all, unemployment for all, free cell phones on the backs of the American tax payer and those stupid enough to continue work for this system. We’ll give you a little extra if you help out the cause. Now it’s blowing up in your face. I’m sick of that S.O.B.. But then what do I know I’m just a “typical old white person”.

      Any man with a name like his and who sat in Wright’s satanic church would never get my vote….talk about red flags everywhere. Obama is a communist and a muslim….he hates this country with a passion and so does his wife. They both got great deals from this country…far better than I ever got…and look how much they hate it and the people who worked to make it the great land it was. I hope the history books are truthful and our grandkids learn what we went through to make it like it is. I also hope that they learn you don’t raised a man up by keeping him down which is exactly what Obama is doing.

    I always have to wonder if BO is intentionally destroying our country. After all he was not only a disciple of Saul Alinsky but he taught the concepts and one of the concepts was to destroy and then rebuild whatever it is you want to achieve from the chaos that is left behind. David Horwitz published a phamplet called “Barack Obama’s Rules for Revolution: The Alinsky Model” dealing with this subject. Here is a particularly frightening and enlightening paragraph from the phamplet. “The guru of Sixties radicals, Alinsky urged his followers to be flexible and opportunistic and say anything to get power, which they can then use to destroy the existing society and its economic system. Alinsky died in 1972, but left behind an organization in Chicago dedicated to his malicious ideas. This team hired Barack Obama in 1986 when he was 23 and taught him how to organize for radical transformation.”
    Here is a link to the .pdf version you can read online or download: http://frontpagemag.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/11/Rules-for-Revolution.pdf

      linda, Rules for Revolution should be required reading for every freshman in high school. One of the things that really struck me is that “the issue is not the issue”….whether the *issue* is black rights, female equality, whatever….the REAL issue is RESOURCES AND POWER. And I believe dear Hillary in one of her writings said the ultimate goal is POWER.

      These madmen/women are right on track. Ultimately, I just don’t see the purpose of tearing everything down so you can rebuild it.

      Anyone or anything out of Chicago is to be feared and kept at arm’s length.

      We are in for trying times again as they are doing a damned good job of destroying us from within.

      To arillrunner: True Americans is a misnomer …. the point deals with what was one called “traditional Americans”. Win or lose dose not cut it when you are discussing a sea change in culture, which is exactly what Obama said he would do in his “FUNDAMENTALLY CHANGING AMERICA”. Given he did not say what he intended before being elected ( both times), what we have in the country are many low information voters who voted and are waiting to see what they get. Thats like the Pelosi quote ” we will find out what in the bill after we pass it” .
      Five years later they still do not know the full extent of Obamas fundamental changes. I am willing to bet those who think they “WON” (as you call it, and think you did win) will have a change of mind and heart as his coercive, social justice ( another word for absolute dictatorial control over the populace government) take effect.

      At best your numbers only indicate the number of people that place their future on his “hope and changy” thing which they have no idea of what that meant …. You want numbers???? Go look up the unemployment figures since the “0″ took office … that will tell who really “WON”

      These elections were rigged from the get go in this state. In the conservative areas there was a shortage of machines and “Democrats” were running the polling places, a couple of the voting machines were not working 3 out of 5 in most polling places.

      around 35% of the people didn’t get to vote. We still remain a conservative state at this point.

    This president stands alone as the first president who obviously doesn’t like America nor its people and he goes about trying to destroy the very country which selected him to be its president. Instead of being humbled and grateful for the honor, Obama busily goes about trying to bring America down in any way that he can. Americans who voted for Obama who first placed him in the office of president choose to ignore his past leftist history and his radical racism that he had revealed by his associates and even ignored what he wrote about himself in the books that he had authored.
    Obama’s presidency has now given ample evidence to all just who Obama is and only those who are sympathetic to his objectives continue to back him.
    The president of this country is supposed to represent and defend the country as Obama said he would do when he took the oath of office,Obama occupies the office but he has fell far short of fulfilling the obligations and duties of that office and America is Still without a leader.

    Can someone please explain why we are on one side in Syria and the complete opposite side in Egypt. We want Morsi to be in charge in Egypt and don’t support the military that ousted him or are even willing to call it a coup, yet in Syria we support the people who want Assad out.

    I’m sorry but chemical weapons use is not enough of a difference for me, were I in Congress, to send American soldiers to fight THEIR war. There is not enough objective evidence from my point of view to know who actually did this and act accordingly.

    I get the “Enemy Mine” thing but once the common enemy is gone then what happens…..they turn on us and bomb Americans in American cities all the while taking our “Humanitarian Aid”.

      It’s really quite easy…obama is going to support the muslim brotherhood. morsi is part of it and the Syrian rebels are part of it. The saudis also support the brotherhood…they do not like having secular governments in their neighborhood. The saudis pretend to be neutral as much as possible, but they are not…they are hard line muslims. I truly believe obama is muslim. His half-brother in AFrica is some sort of official with the brotherhood. hildebeast’s top adviser WAS…don’t know if she still is on of her advisers…you know the one…married to weiner…comes from a family who is high up in the brotherhood. I also think a majority of our appointed high up government officials are also members. Their purpose is not only to force their belief system, or their cult, on everyone, but to destroy anyone who resists them.

    So save the money that we dont have let the Syrians sort this out themselves. It has nothing to do with saving children, because if it did, the libs wont be forcing us tax payers to kill millions of babies via PPH. This is all about BO,nothing to do with children!

    I heard that the Saudi is going to fun this “war” Has BO reduced our mighty army to mercenaries? This is so embarrassing. The US does not lie inside the ME. If the Saudis are so scared let them send their own troops. They have the $$$, let them take care of themselves!

    The reaon both Carter and Clinton campaigned for Osama is that he has made them BOTH look good – something that even their staunchest supporters – their wives – didn’t think was possible. This idiot was an embarassment the first time around – the fact that we re-elected him, by fair means or foul, reflects on us as a nation and not favorably. Putin treats him with the disdain he deserves – too bad the MSM doesn’t have his level of intelligence (and I’m not a fan – Putin is nothing more than a thug). We need to get involved in Syria like we need Barney Frank to be the next Fed Chairman. I still say that Osama NEEDS some sort of military action so that he can declare a “national security threat” and then willfully disarm all U.S. citizens. If you think that is outside of the realm of possibility then you have been living under a rock for at least the past 5 years.

    Not only is Obama Bin-Lyin the most embarrassing guy of the 12 who have occupied the office in my life time, he is the most dangerous. His goal to diminish the stature of the US is succeeding which is very worrisome. He has degraded this country’s military, its credibility in the world, and its relationship with important allies. Obama Bin-Lyin supports are darkest enemies; radical islamists, has torn a huge rip in the fabric of our culture, and has seriously weakened the economy of the United States. He is all about setting up a white versus black culture. He totally disrespects and circumvents the legislative branch of government. He selectively enforces law. He would happily shred the Constitution of the United States. All the above while there is still a serious unanswered question about whether or not he is even eligible to occupy the office he occupies.

    I prefer not to refer to Obama Bin-Lyin as president. It is a significant insult to the integrity and importance of the office.

      Sumitch, don’t you imagine there is a very liberal think tank who comes up with all this ****. You can’t tell me Obama is coming up with all this idiocy on his own…the man is not smart enough. Someone is paying a bunch of brainless twits, probably fresh out of the ivory towers of higher education to come up with off-the-wall scenarios and once in a while, something sticks and works.

      I know the man wants nothing more than to take our guns, but I guarantee you, there will be a bloody revolution in Texas should this happen and this grandma will be right out there with her rifle.

      I wonder what he will do if he doesn’t get his way in Syria…will he do it anyway? Pompous little megalomaniac that he is, he probably will and hang the consequences.

      My only hope is that everyone will fight the good fight and not back down from this problem with Syria. We cannot, for one instance, allow him to take any action. Keep calling Congress and telling them we do not want this.

    I find it inconceivable that anyone currently serving in the military, would have confidence in their commander-in-chief. How could they given his personal political decision one year ago to leave our people behind to die in Benghazi at the hands of islamic terrorists. He didn’t even care enough about those people to request ongoing updates throughout the night. A 7 hour battle was being waged by these heroic americans while our president slept. Why? Because he had a Las Vegas fundraiser the next morning to attend and he wanted to be rested! To add insult to injury, he and his entire administration, including Hillary Clinton, immediately fabricated a lie about the cause of the Benghazi attack to shelter him during his re-election campaign. He even had his military leaders lie about why requests for support by these people were ignored… his infamous stand down order that he will never admit to giving. Obama’s despicable acts during the Benghazi attack should never be forgiven or forgotten. It was disgraceful.

    Obama is doing what he has done all his career being paid by the public. He has lied, attacked his opponents to ruin them, vowed to fundamentally change America, showed distain for our U.S. Constitution, one of the most enduring and dynamic set of written laws ever written by the hands of men, embarrassed and demeaned the American Heroes in the U.S. military, and is a “pure, unadulterated disgrace.”

    I am a member of the only voting group which did not vote as a majority for Obama. All ages of African Americans voted as an overwhelming majority for Obama. Male and female Hispanics voted in majority for Obama. All ages of Caucasian women voted in majority for Obama. The only group which voted against Obama were Caucasian males 45 and older and I am a member of that group. We were the only group not voting for skin color, not voting for a false change, not voting for personality, not voting for embarrassment, not voting for more government. We voted for a restoration of America to its foundations. Now we must expand that to all other groups for the upcoming local, regional and national elections when they come forth.

    Awaken America. I hope it is not too late. Even if it is, I will work with all that is within me, so help me God, to return America to what made us great.

      The question to be asked,” Are there enough citizens in this country who still feel that this country is still worth saving or have Americans just given up hope that America will ever again return to the America that was good and moral.
      Will America turn from today’s attitudes commonly expressed by America’s citizens,”its all about Me,Hooray for me and good luck to you attitudes.
      Its way past time that America strive to instill in every American’s heart a love for their country and once again show their pride in being an American citizen.
      America’s fate now hinges on whether there are enough citizens like yourself who still are proud to call themselves Americans,who are patriotic and love their country, we can only hope,for the countries sake that there are.

      mjz4043, I agree that it’s not just Obama coming up with the trash and the desire to destroy our country, but I think that even more it’s the many that he has selected for his sleazy administration that are working with him. I can’t speak for all Texans, but for me? Out of my cold dead hands Barry. Molon Labe if you have the stones. Sure I’ll lose but like my dad used to tell me “You may get a meal but I’ll get a sandwich”.

      If Congress votes no on Syria and he goes ahead (or tries) anyway it will trigger the largest constitutional crisis this country has ever seen and the damage will last for decades, not unlike the civil war at its time and the aftermath. It will split this country like racism has never been able to do try as hard as Sharpton, Jackson, the Obama(s) and their ilk have tried. So in my opinion he wins something in a way regardless of what happens.

      I know he’s the Commander in Chief but I also know that the military does not have to follow an illegal order. The knot in the rope is will he be able to convince them that his is a legal order. I wish I could feel secure that the military will not follow his order to attack Syria after Congress and the citizens of the country say no, but I can’t help but have a sick feeling in my belly. I’ve talked to several ranking officers and they all say the military will follow the constitution. If they give the orders, what they say will be followed by the forces regardless of what he says. If he does try to attack Syria and Congress does not immediately start impeachment proceedings we’ll have even more to worry about. Every state should then start recall proceedings of every congressperson that goes along with him. We’ve got a rocky road ahead of us whichever way it goes but I’m with you grandma.

      Where does it say “It was the time that tried men’s (and women’s) souls”?

    It’s good that some are realizing the truth about Obama. The worst part about this current foolishness is that it is sure to cost this nation and Israel being victims of World War III. Assad couldn’t just ignore an attack by our armed forces. And the closest ally is Israel, who will suffer the most from Obama’s errors in judgment. Or should we say, Obama’s decisions as to the best way to ruin the U.S.A.

      Agree .. like attacking Syria killing innocent Syrian civilians with bombs to prove a point that Syria shouldn’t kill innocent civilians.

      Israel would suffer greatly there’s no question. But you can bet that their enemies will pay greatly. I truly believe that if they feel that their country is falling, they’ll go to nukes.

    Here is some US history about chemical weapons that was just declassified by the CIA: During the Iraq/Iran war, the Iraqis used mustard gas and sarin, a lethal nerve agent, prior to four major offensives against Iran in early 1988 that relied on US satellite imagery, maps, and other intelligence. I remember that was the same president who sent US troops to Lebanon as peacekeepers after the 1982 Israeli invasion. Sadly those brave Marines were under strict presidential orders to not load their weapons. On October 23, 1983 220 of our finest Marines were killed by a suicide truck bomb, along with 18 sailors and 3 US civilians. The US embassy in Beirut had sent numerous cables warning Washington that the invasion would provoke terrorism and undermine America’s standing in the Mideast. But there was no response. On April 18, 1983, a delivery van exploded at the front door of the U.S. embassy in Beirut, killing 46 people, including 16 Americans, and wounding more than 100 others. We never learn from our history.

    I have always loved silent movies and the irony featured in those old comedies. I never imagined that they would be acted out in real life. I hope I don’t offend the memories of those long gone entertainers here.

    The Obama Administration is a Keystone Administration, a tragic comedy of errors that shows up like info-commercials show up when you least want to buy something that you have no use for or have determined was a pile of ****.

    This Keystone President rejects the Keystone Pipeline that would produce drop energy prices and he complains that Republicans say his wind power program, *****. His speaks of the many positive things he has done to put people in good paying jobs, but those are almost 90% part time to feed a family on, or are union or government jobs.

    He claims Obamacare that he called Congress’s plan until it passed would insure the 30 million that were uninsured before, cost those who pay taxes about $2500 less a year only to have real mathematicians proving at minimum of $2500 more and complains that they are not using his calculus. Duh!

    He almost quips in 2012 that Trayvon Martin looks like a son, if he had one and vaults race into today’s conversations. Most of the nation was over the deep racism decades ago until, in 2007, when Obama’s supporters in legions of black racist like Sharpton trashed America and the way America has bent over backwards to amend much what it can as a result of abuses inflicted on their ancestors in the last century and the centuries before. While racism still exists in a few corners of America, but I dare say it is mostly from black racists stirring up impressionable young people of color who can’t seem to catch a break because those whites AND blacks wasted the resources promoting themselves for political office or other prestige rather than solving the problems on neighborhood blight, poor education opportunities leading to good jobs. Life goes on and it only take 18 years to ready every child born to ready them for college, the business world or the crafts that American needs to reach higher achievements. Yet, those left behind since the 1960s by poor service to the black communities have their own grandchildren and great grandchildren growing up in the same conditions and this “Post-Racial” president is still increasing the entitlements for votes to retain the culture that traps their and the next generations that few will escape.

    This Keystone President wants to stop coal today and put those people out of a (dangerous) job, but offers wind and solar that can’t possibly keep up with America’s energy needs. Jacked up oil prices to pay for the alternative energies that makes it expensive to get to and from work and to buy food, housing, education and other perhaps less important things like mandated healthcare, which now ranks among the essentials in like as breathing, eating and producing heirs who will have nothing to split with siblings.

    This “4th Best President” as he quoted it, favors Islam, the religion of his birth, over Christianity, yet Christians MUST yield to Islam and Atheists in all manner of life. “In God We Trust” is in danger from those who have completely remove their need to pray and don’t like it when others take time to give thanks for what we have. He has proven NOT to be the lawyer he says he is in the way he clumsily inject his opinion into public discussion on matters like the Cambridge, MA police and others. His “Calculus” is no match for simple math on the national deficit. He claims under his term of office has the “greatest decreases in spending…” when he really means “the greatest decrease from what he wanted to borrow from China and …. to pay for his program and balance our budget. He announces troop buildup to handle the hostilities in a combat zone while announcing the withdrawal date in the same speech. He accepts a Nobel Peace prize for doing nothing (which greatly devalued the award) and after standing by while Syrian forces kill over 100,000 or their own in battle and after a “Red Line” comment that he denies, fails to act until the second, third or perhaps fourth use of Sarin gas on Syrians that he says he is going to act on, then stops to ask Congress for backup even though he has the authority (so he says) to do so. He just wants to “shoot across the bow” of President Assad and says it is not war. Let Assad fire across our bow and se if he has anything that floats afterwards. Obama stepped too close to the Arab nations with this threat to Assad and has backed off to the “permission of Congress”.

    Two things are evident about this Keystone President in that 1. he is less effective than a General George Spanky McFarland (look it up if you are clueless) of Little Rascals fame and 2. he is less dangerous if he would just stay on the golf course and dig his holes in the sand traps. Either way he just digs holes and I didn’t even mention his Laurel and Hardy, Three Stooges and Abbott and Costello cabinet members!

    Can someone please tell me what the hell all this “red line” stuff is? I always thought it was known as “drawing a line in the sand” like what was done at the Alamo. Is it just me that thinks this “red line” nonsense sounds really juvenile and coming from the leader of this country, makes it totally ridiculous.
    This has nothing to do with the “red line” ****, but obama has told a family in Sweden that he will ask Putin what happened to the remains of their relative supposedly who died while imprisoned in Russia after WWII( I think). Well good luck with that after he publically embarrasses the man obama has the audacity to ask him for a favor? This guy obama is a narcissist of the highest order.

      I think the term “red line” started last year when Ben Netanyahoo (sp?), prime minister of Israel, asked where should the red line be drawn with respect to how far the world should let Iran go in the development of nuclear power. Then it sort crept into the talks about Syria and chemical weapons.

      Benjamin Netanyahu did refer to a “red line” in his talk about Iran, as you say. Obama, being an immature narcissist, tries to be a kick-butt warrior like Netanyahu truly is, so he tossed out a “red line” of his own. Trouble is, with his Mom jeans, his limp-wristed trot up and down any steps he encounters whether it’s 2 steps or 32 steps such as Air Force One, his knock-kneed basketball throws, his girlie baseball pitch, his girlie sidewalk bike rides wearing a girlie helmet and his one-legged “flamingo” golf stance, he cannot successfully project a kick-butt warrior image.

    BHO is an embarrassment for America. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools, such as those who made him their president.

      You are so right when you stated,”BHO is an embarrassment for America. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools, such as those who made him their president.” I agree, America has made a serious, maybe even a fatal mistake in electing Obama…. Good rely
