It's 3 am. The phone is ringing. Obama won't answer. He can't.

its 3 am -2

He's been called aloof. He's been called detached. He's been said to dither. They were all correct. Now you can add paralyzed to that list. His worst nightmare (and ours, BTW) has arrived. ISIS is marching across Iraq. Despite their inhuman atrocities, Obama cannot call them the enemy. He's not interested in defeating them and the Washington Post says Obama lacks a coherent strategy. ISIS needs to be pulverized, but Obama is nowhere to be found.

It's finally happened. Obama can't make a decision. He can't make a decision because he is not a leader. He is a community organizer. He is used to stoking the fire and sitting back, waiting for the dust to settle and then taking the noble position just as he did in Chicago when he voted "present" 129 times. The leader of the free world cannot afford that luxury. It's so bad that even Obama suck-up Dana Milbank noticed.

Obama is still good at bullying American citizens, "Chokepointing" their legal businesses.

Now the world is seeing what the Obama doctrine really is and what he meant by "Don't do stupid [stuff]." What he meant is "don't do anything that might make me look bad."

We've had warnings:

David Ignatius, 2012

It’s embarrassing when President Barack Obama’s risk-averse refusal to engage foreign-policy issues becomes so obvious that it’s a laugh line for the president of Iran.

The National Journal 2013:

Barack Obama is a “dithering” president whose controlling tendencies and extreme risk-averse attitude to foreign policy has damaged American interests in the Middle East, according to a new book by a senior former State Department adviser.

The insider account of the damaging divisions between the White House and the State Department comes as diplomats wait to see if John Kerry, the new US secretary of state, can persuade Mr Obama to show greater engagement on Syria, Egypt and the wider Middle East.

Vali Nasr, a university professor who was seconded in 2009 to work with Richard Holbrooke, Mr Obama’s special envoy to Afghanistan and Pakistan, records his profound disillusion at how a “Berlin Wall” of domestic-focused advisers was erected to protect Mr Obama.

“The president had a truly disturbing habit of funnelling major foreign policy decisions through a small cabal of relatively inexperienced White House advisers whose turf was strictly politics,” Mr Nasr writes in The Dispensable Nation: America Foreign policy in Retreat.

CNN 2013:

But he has grown increasingly risk-averse when it came to the truly complex challenges: Iran, Israel, and of course, Syria.

Here the sheer complexity and difficulty of the issues and his fear of failure has tempered the president's enthusiasm for serious engagement. The political risks of fighting with the Israelis on settlements or appeasing the Iranian regime on the nuclear issue took care of the rest.

He is also not interested in defeating ISIS, because he is not going to do anything to harm Muslims, IMHO. If these were Tea Party groups or pro-life groups, or climate change-denying groups, he would have figured out a strategy to defeat them.

“It’s finally happened. Obama can’t make a decision. He can’t make a decision because he is not a leader. “

Now that statement was a lot of B.S.Obama knows exactly what he’s doing and that’s been his plan all along to do as little as possible to destroy these ISIS Animals.

All people have to do is listen to his past statements and take them at face value.He’s intending on standing with ISLAM just like he said he would.

Obama is the product of many benefactors paying his way through life without learning anything of Merit.
His intentions appear to be to destroy the USA as we know it.
For this , we can thank the Leftist Press and leftist Media in general in concert with the low information crowed and the leeches who intend to live off the taxpayers.
He should have been left to straighten out the Ghettos of Chicago. God Help the USA.

I guess it is easier for the press to call him inept than to call him evil.

That tells you how STUPID the bureaucratic insiders are inside the behemoth US Government. I mean, did these people really think that John "Let's Surrender To Vietnam, Because I Have Been There - Did You Know That I Have Been To Vietnam" Kerry was going to do anything that even remotely resembled "engagement"?!?!?

Please! I mean really, please tell me that people didn't expect Obama (who can't make a decision) and Kerry (who always makes the WRONG decision) were going to some how magically correct all the BS policies and ignorance's which Obama was already spearheading?!?!

Sociopath Obama closes his ears to the dying screams of the Yazidi trapped on Mount Sinjar, as he schemes to play politics with Bagdad, and play Golf, of course.

The Muslim Barbarians are poised to slaughter all of America’s former Allies, as Betrayer-in-Chief Obama plays in his playpen Utopia called Obamanation.

Will Speaker Boehner now Convene the US House and write the Articles of Impeachment on Obama?

Will Senator Reid now convince Obama that it is time for Obama to resign?

The Yazidi Refugees on Mount Sinjar want to know - - - - .

The US low-information voter says “Party ON!”

The Muslim Barbarians say “FORWARD!”

Hey, the Yazidis can’t vote or give him money. He doesn’t give a rat’s ass about anyone.

For someone called “No Drama, Obama” he certainly does weird actions on the golf course with his leg straight up in the air like a ROCKETTE, and other moves I’ve seen.

Bing. He can't call them the enemy, and he is not interested in defeating them.

He didn't have any problem bringing down Mubarak or Khadafi, and he didn't have any problem funneling jihadis into Syria. But he dithers when those same jihadis slaughter Syrian Christians, or launch into Iraq and slaughter Iraqi Christians...

Catch a clue. Obama supports Muslim Brotherhood. His own government is riddled with them. He supports the jihadis when they can be turned against the right enemies. If they slaughter Christians along the way, he isn't going to stay up late worrying about it.

You take a black male with both Islamic and Marxist blood, educate him, place him in universities where he doesn’t have to show up for classes, buy him a law degree and walk him all the way to the White House.

That’s called a Manchurian candidate.

And, did the mainstream media report this fact? Rhetorical question.

Thanks for making my point, this time as a soon to be heard broadcast on the 6 O’Clock News:

“Long-time US Commander in Chief Obama refuses to come to the aid of tens of thousands former US Ally Iraq Citizens waiting to be butchered on Mount Sinjar by hordes of Muslim Barbarians.

This reads like it must have been in the days of Genghis Khan, doesn’t it Skippy?

Obama has set the US on a new course of tolerance for massacres, especially if there are Muslim Barbarians who are practicing their centuries old favorite blood sport.

If this is the way the US treats its former Allies, then why should ANY Country want to be an Ally of the United States of America in the future?

Obama’s CUT and RUN Foreign Policy sure is a long way from JFK’s speech about “- - -pay any price, fight any foe, - - - ,” wouldn’t you say Skippy?

US Congressional Leaders, Boehner and Reid have approved of The Cut and Run Foreign Policy, by refusing to Impeach Obama or force Obama to Resign.

Now Skippy, back to you for the Weather. - - - - “

I've heard these thoughts echoed in other quarters, usually accompanied by comments about radical Muslim infiltration of highest levels of this administration..................

If you look at it a certain way, inept, incompetent, and lazy, describe him incredibly well.
