Well, he can go ask John McCain who all these ‘rebels’ are so he can give them dollars and RPGs.

I have it on good authority John knows all about them. Don’t even pay attention to anyone that says John’s friends are Jihadis, or terrorists, or Muslim Brotherhoodies, or Al Qaeda....that’s just foolish - they’re good people like you an me on Sunday at the church eatin’ fried chicken outside under the cool of the shady trees..

He honestly thinks that all he needs in order to dig himself out of trouble is to give a snappy speech.

We are all in deep dung here.

This is INSANITY. Who but Assad can bring order and save the Christians in Syria? And where will any weapons we give to Syria’s friendlier rebels (huh?) end up?

I worry this man-child will do something really, really, stupid to ‘prove’ he’s not weak. Something we may never recover from.

I am more inclined to call Michelle a man child than the dweeb. Have you seen the video calling out Michelle on her masculine features, finger length, Adam’s apple, shoulder width, hip shoulder ratio, height, genitalia?

That's a man, baby!!

“’I believe in American exceptionalism with every fiber of my being”

He doesn’t even know what it means. He thinks its some kind of soccer chant, or a Nazi throwback about a destiny to rule the earth.

And why is this psychopath working so hard to support Syrian islamists?

I think you are exactly right. This narcissistic immature child is exactly the kind of person who will do something stupid to prove he isn’t weak, thereby the danger in this world and actually proving he is weak.

Read the reader comments at the source. It appears the President is not enjoying public confidence as a man of action.

In truth, this president has fulfilled more of his campaign promises and ideals than maybe the previous 10 put together. He has wildly succeeded in what he has wanted to do.

That’s not nice. There are a lot of big, tall women in America. She’s one of them. Her brother is a college basketball coach. This build probably runs in the family.

How does it feel to be a graduate just now being told by the president the next 4-8 years of your service will be spent fighting and dying for America’s partners... Such as Al Qaeda.

“I worry this man-child will do something really, really, stupid to ‘prove’ he’s not weak. Something we may never recover from.”

Bet on it... Notice this morning that westerners (Americans) are being advised to leave Libya. Want to guess why? Maybe we are finally going to carry out a “hit” on those who were responsible for killing our ambassador... Prove he is not weak. Problem is he is telegraphing his plan and the bad guys are getting ready themselves. If he goes in with SF direct action they will be ready and will try to pull off another “Blackhawk Down” scenario. It he goes it with an air-strike/TLAM strike they will produce lots of collateral damage with HD photos of mangled kids and women. Its a lose/lose/lose for Obama... like watching a train wreck (or self-outing a Chief of Mission).

"This is INSANITY. Who but Assad can bring order and save the Christians in Syria? And where will any weapons we give to Syria’s friendlier rebels (huh?) end up?"

This will cause more chaos, get more Christians killed and send weapons to transnational terrorists who will use them in other countries, as well. Sounds like a triple win for Obama, especially good because he will use US funding to kill Christians.

Then he needs to hike up his big girl panties and go fight side by side with the “rebels”.

“Just as in Iraq, the president had the opportunity to commit to a strategy and the resources required to stabilize Afghanistan during his policy review two years ago. Instead, he chose to side with his political advisers – a group of people many seasoned Washington policy hands describe as a bunch of petulant, inexperienced campaign staffers with big titles.

None of those advisers had any military planning experience, and they encouraged the president to barter over troop levels like they were buying rugs in an Arab bazaar. In the end, the administration came to a decision about what its Afghanistan goals were and then failed to adequately resource the plan for it to succeed. The president was so adamant about capping force levels after listening to these same advisers that he took the unprecedented step of typing out his order, which was subsequently published verbatim in Bob Woodward’s book, “Obama’s Wars.”

This is the same man that was said to have appointed Gen. Eric Shinseki as secretary of Veterans Affairs for telling the Bush administration more troops were needed for the occupation of Iraq.

Obama admires generals who tell their elected leaders what is required to get the job done — so long as that elected leader isn’t him.”

Bears repeating, because that was my first reaction when I saw his comment!

“I worry this man-child will do something really, really, stupid to ‘prove’ he’s not weak. Something we may never recover from.”

Interesting article Ernest.
"With CONECT, the B-52H could stay in active service until 2040, almost 90 years after it was first introduced, despite the (expected) long-overdue introduction of a new Long Range Strike Bomber in the 2020s."

It is a tribute to Boeing in being able to design and fabricate that airframe from it's early days, in such a way it has lasted so long with proper maintenance.

And why is this psychopath working so hard to support Syrian islamists?

Because he's talking in code. Once you finally see that the Administration has already made the decisions (and the GOPe is in on it) to neutralize American Christian Constitutional conservatives and anybody that looks like one, then what is happening now and in recent years in our Nation is easier to understand. Have they already capitulated?
