Obama's foriegn Policy EPIC FAIL on display, for all to see...

Unfortunately, this hides his even greater Economic EPIC FAILS, as this takes attention away from Yesterday's disastrous Initial Jobless Claims Report, and the announcement of QE-TO-INFINITY, and BEYOND!

Please stand by for a sincere, and heartfelt message from the apologist-in-chief.

CNN’s headline is “Protesters Breach Embassy in Tunisia.”

That chant confirms it has nothing to do with the movie and everything to do with perceived weakness.

I have been to the Embassy in Tunis. Back then it was a very European, cosmopolitan city. It was one of the better vacations we have taken.

My sister lives in France and regularly vacations in Tunisia; it is to the French what Florida is to Canadians. This will be VERY bad for business there.

Isn't Al Jezeera a Muslim propaganda site?

We are almost at the point of: Air raid Pearl Harbor, this is no drill

After that point of time in December, 1941, anything that would aid the Japanese/German propaganda effort was considered treason by Americans...

Waldo’s taking a well-deserved hiatus from his backbreaking campaign schedule. He’s playing golf.

He’s qualified to play in the U.S. “AMATEUR”, you know.

Hell, he may even be OVER-qualified ;)

I’m sure they’ll be releasing a “situation room” photo-op any time now showing him hard at work.

I have a good friend at The Agency who has told me that if I want to know what is actually going on overseas watch BBC and AlJezeera. Don’t believe any American source to be accurate or truthful. And lately, like in the last six months that seems to apply to sourcing American domestic news as well.

Maybe about the 15th hole? Almost done, ready to get to a big cheeseburger, fries, and a couple beers (psst, don’t tell Michelle!).

Go to this link for pictures, you will not see in our left wing media: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2202979/Benghazi-attack-U-S-consulate-pictured-Libyan-attack-revealed-officials-knew-attack-plans-48-HOURS-before.html

Thanks to dead for this reality:

Carter is Obama. Obama is Carter.

Both are Traitor Losers, who hate America!

Jimmy Carter's presidency was doomed by the Iranian hostage crisis after the US embassy in Tehran was stormed by Islamist extremists following the Iranian revolution.

A year after the 52 Americans were taken hostage, Carter lost the 1980 election. The hostages were released just as President Ronald Reagan, who defeated Carter, was sworn in.

1979

2012


As Clint noted, the Empty Chair improved by codetoad:

It is past time to fire Barack and have him hit the road back to Chicago!

Thanks to RushIsMyTeddyBear and Focault's Pendulum and for finding these morphing graphic art realities

It’s not US Media is covering this as well.

MSNBC cut away from the White Daily Briefing disaster mid-way through, and CNN is too busy trying to blame the film-maker, and not Obama’s foreign policy.

Al Jazeera is a legitimate news network with a pro-Islam bias. You could think of them as the CNN of the middle east.

When I was in Egypt earlier this year I got better news from them than I did from the CNN feed. They were a bit selective in what they chose to show, but the programming was much more interesting than I could get anywhere else.
