Here Comes Obama's 3 AM Phone Call

Here Comes Obama's 3 AM Phone Call

By James Lewis
Febuary 27,2012

In the next 60 days Obama's presidential career will finally meet that concrete wall of reality. He will either fail or survive. Trouble is, he might take many innocent people with him if he fails.

So far, the most hyped-up and unqualified president in US history has shown no capacity at all to act, in the face of a do-or-die challenge. This is the ultimate test of character, the one that John F. Kennedy met well enough in the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis. This is the test that Jimmy Carter failed so miserably that Ronald Reagan beat him handily in the following election. This is the same test of reality that every single Democratic Administration has tried to avoid; it's the reason why Bill Clinton refused to do anything about Osama Bin Laden when he had four separate chances to take him out.

This time, abject apologies to ranting Pakistani mobs will not make a smidgen of difference. Even Axelrod's disinformation campaigns can't save Obama now, because that 3 am phone call is almost sure to come by April Fool's Day of 2012, when the real fool will stand revealed to the world.

On or about April 1 of 2012, that 3 AM phone call will reach the White House. We know what it will be -- which is itself a sign of stunning incompetence in this White House. None of this information should ever be public. But this administration has chosen its Secretary of Defense to publicly leak the most closely guarded secret of Israel's back-against-the-wall defense against Iranian nuclear weapons.

Such public leaks amount to near treason in time of war. Imagine if someone leaked General Eisenhower's plans for the D-Day invasion in June of 1944.

He is utterly worthless on foreign and domestic policy. Hillary the wife of the imnpeached assclown will extract a great price from him for her “expertise” which is suspect as well.

America needs God’s mercy at all times, and especially during these dangerous times with a know-nothing in great power with an agenda that includes ruining our economy and reputation.

That pathetic turd will do absolutely zero, and will fall back on his usual habit of blaming Bush.



Nos genuflectitur ad non princeps sed Princeps Pacem!

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)

Seems like the article believes Obama is grossly incompetent. I believe his actions are deliberate.

From the article:
“the one that John F. Kennedy met well enough in the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis.”

Does this guy know anything about the Cuban missile crisis?

That thousands of Cuban patriots died because Kennedy failed to provide air cover after promising to do so?

The only reason that it went ‘well enough’ is because Kennedy kept crying and apologizing all over the place.

Except for his bedroom antics, Kennedy was an extremely weak president. He didn’t face down Khruschev. They just traded missile take-downs - Cuba and Turkey.

Kennedy was even afraid to pass any civil rights laws.

Israel will do what Israel needs to do. I don’t for a minute think that Israel has ever thought a sustained US bombing campaign is their salvation. She will nuke the sh!t out of Iran, eventually. It is destiny.

As far as Obama’s 3 AM call, it happens every damned day with the dozens and dozens of millions of leech Americans that swipe their EBT cards, that go to H&R Block to get their refund anticipation loans to get that EITC cash that they did not earn, to get that AFDC, that SCHIP, that WICs, that SNAP, that live rent-free in their Section 8 housing, et al that they have earned in no honest way conceivable.

I thought the NYT story on February 24th that US spies had concluded that Iran had ended its nuclear weapons program in 2007 is typical of the naivety that has permeated the Obama administration. Iran is building an enriched uranium bomb and the technology to make a uranium nuke like that dropped on Hiroshima in 1945 is relatively simple. Note that the designers of the “Little Boy” bomb were so confident it would work the device wasn't tested until it was dropped over Japan. The Iranians are also foolish enough to believe that testing the device by putting it on a missile aimed at Israel would not bring nuclear retaliation by Israel because the Obama administration would pressure Israel not to react. They are also assured that Obama will not involve US forces to defend Israel.

As it always has been, the people pay the price in blood for poor leadership. Unfortunately, most of the blood will be spilled by our young men and women.

I believe he is both evil and incompetent. However, as a practical matter, his incompetence mitigates his evil. Consider what a fix we might be in if he were truly competent, like, say Hitler or Lenin.

I think you are referring to the Bay of Pigs. (not that I don't agree)

“Seems like the article believes Obama is grossly incompetent. I believe his actions are deliberate.”

You are correct!! Too many of us judge Obummer by an inappropriate, irrelevant performance standard. He is a Socialist Autocrat Ideologue, determined to transform the U.S.A. at the most fundamental basis of our nation’s proclamation of identity, the Declaration of Independence, and progressing through our Constitution, which defines the manner in and by which we are to be governed,not ruled but governed. These are barriers to the realization of his dream of a unitary socialist polity, our states reduced to member provinces ruled by edicts from a dictator, with the administrative/management functions lodged in personally appointed czars accountable solely to the appointing authority. Obummer’s degree of success in achieving that goal is the proper measure of his performance in office.

Gee, and I always thought Obama’s 3am call would come from Larry Sinclair.

No American president has ever allowed an international crisis to come so close to the brink. Obama has now allowed the Middle East to deteriorate so far that he has lost control.

This was NOT inadvertent.

The Won was raised from his mother's knee to hate Western Civilization in general and the US and its allies in particular.

Anything he can do to weaken us and/or strengthen our enemies, he will do.

I agree 100% Me thinks that it is all part of the plan. He is a calculated risk. This man is dangerous. Period. Wonder what he has up his sleeve. I pray the mayans were not right about the 2012 thing cause then we are stuck with Dictator Obama if any of us survive. LOL

That's one call he'd be sure to blow.

This is (one of many reasons) why Mitt Romney is the wrong candidate.

Romney believes that Obama is simply ‘over his head’. How in the world is Romney going to be able to successfully take on the Obama election machine if his premise is wrong??

How can Romney attack Panetta’s treasonous action if Romney considers it to be a “whoops-I talk too much” issue?

How can Romney go after Obama’s support of the Muslim Brotherhood when Romney believes that Obama just mistakenly thought that they were a swell bunch of guys?

How can Romney excuse Obama’s lack of action on Iran as “gosh, I thought we did all we could”?

(I’m not yelling at you, I’m venting)

Whoops, yeah thanks - Bay of Pigs.

Just had to get my anti-JFK rant in.

Although if he had provided air cover at the Bay of Pigs there might never have been a Cuban missile crisis.

If Israel acts as it must, there is a fair chance that the US will enter the fight by ordering the Israeli planes back to base and/or shooting them down.
