Skip to comments.These Words from Obama Are Frightening -- and Revealing

Its less than comforting to hear the President make light of terrorist threats.
In a recent interview with The New Yorker, President Obama referred to todays al-Qaeda fighters as the jayvee team.
The analogy we use around here sometimes, and I think is accurate, is if a jayvee team puts on Lakers uniforms that doesnt make them Kobe Bryant, he said.
This shows that the Administrations wishful thinking about al-Qaeda isnt over. Obama and his fellow officials seem to think if you say something enough times, it will become true.
Before Benghazi, they claimed al-Qaeda was defeated and on the run. Four dead Americans later, this was proven false.
Then the President said we cannot stay at war forever. Again, a nice sentiment, but in the real world, war doesnt end until both sides stop fighting.
Al-Qaeda is different today than it was on 9/11; that is true. But the new, decentralized version is not to be taken as lightly as Obama seems to. We are still at waronly now with an enemy that is harder to pin down. And the enemy has determination, numbers, resources, and capabilities that we have to worry about. In fact, CNN reported earlier this month that al Qaeda appears to control more territory in the Arab world than it has done at any time in its history.
President Obama needs to drop the cute (and misplaced) metaphors and recognize these serious threats for what they are.
There have been at least 60 Islamist-inspired terrorist plots against the U.S. homeland since 9/11. Fifty-three of these were thwarted long before the public was ever in danger, due in large part to the concerted efforts of U.S. law enforcement and intelligence.
We must stay serious about fighting terrorism and equip our dedicated military, intelligence, and law enforcement organizations to do their jobs. The safety of American lives and American interests depends on it.
His mind is as addled as his syntax and his actions muddled by years of sucking in cannabis, snorting cocaine and here he is in the White Hut. His mentality at this point is probably that of a teenager as he peddles his tricycle throughout the White Hut knocking into the furniture.
Face it, 'folks', America suffers greatly as an egotistical Marxist-Muslim moron plays president.
I don’t know how much more revealing our complicit Congress needs before they impeach and eject this nation killer from office!
The jayvees managed to inflict a great deal of mayhem upon spectators at the Boston Marathon.
AQ is dead therefore the successful raid on Bengazi must have been conducted by someone else.
Lawyerly argument made specifically to cover the defendants guilt will for sure solve the problem.
Obama knows nothing. He makes statements pulled from his butt. He must from time to time defend the indefensible. The current defense is to defend the indefensible statement attempting to defend the indefensible.
Hey Zero, JV or Pro when a terrorist kills you are dead, dead, dead.
You just stated the obvious...the reason Obunghole acts with impunity....congress IS complicit. They are every bit
as guilty as he is and need to share in the same fate.
What does the Current Occupant of the Oval Orifice mean, al-Qaeda is fielding the “jayvee team”?
Why do they have to be putting their best players out against the titular head of the governance of the territory of the nation once known as “the United States of America”? The Current Regime is composed of that former country’s scrub team and the grade-school “jayvees”, and the Islamists think it is just unfair to be too overpowering, when their aim is first to win over the populace of this tormented territory by guile, then get around to imposing Shari’a law.
At which time they will simply snuff out the liberals who made the transition easy for them. They have studied Saul Alinsky well, but the socialists of the old Marxist variety are only allies of temporary convenience.
More and more Washington, D.C. represents Madrid in 1936. The communists are in power and their goal is the total decimation of American ingenuity, patriotism and the influence of God.
May God help the USA!
“the jayvees” were and still are on the varsity court because the ptb (both political parties) support the invasion of the US. They have weapons because we give them to them, hopefully to use to overthrow dictators that don’t support globalist policies of the elite. The Boston Marathon blown up? Why that’s just collateral damage to the cheap labor crowd.
Oh look, A-Q tosses a few boneheaded ops out there for bammy and his cohorts to “find” and thwart. bammy is enough of a babe in the woods not to see it for what it is. That’s an experienced organization showing you what you want to see and collecting intel on your response, response time, decision loop, etc. When they’re ready, they will strike, and they will bring their A game. I guarantee you bammy and Co. is not ready for that.
The reason Bush kept Osama bin Laden alive was because it kept al Qaida centralized.
Anyone above the level of idiot knew killing OBL would make it more difficult to stop terrorist attacks because every terrorist in the world would be jockeying to take his place as the big dog in the terrorist world.
Zarkawi(sp?) out of Iraq found out in 2006 what happens when you tried to go around OBL and carry out an attack without his permission.
Yes but that jayvee team is retaking parts of Iraq that we paid for in American blood. Of course dipsh*t just threw that victory away.
The man does not deal in realities, only in the world-according-to-obama.
Obama invites catastrophe every time he opens his mouth, whether deliberate or not...
Yup - its all a big game to him.
Elect an affirmative-action President, and you reap the whirlwind.
Real, make believe? Where is that from and if it exists why hasn’t anyone else presented it?
I can’t wait for Obama’s idiotic comments when the Iranians test their nuke. I expect there will be some reference to the failed Bush policies being the cause.
This is the confused illogical statement of someone on the edges of mental illness.
It will be a dark day but obama will indeed blame George Bush, whom he would have fought tooth-and-nail from The Senate had he tried to take any military action against Iran. Same goes for Reid and Feinstein and Schumer and Murray and Durbin and Clinton et al.
“The analogy we use around here sometimes, and I think is accurate, is if a jayvee team puts on Lakers uniforms that doesnt make them Kobe Bryant, he said.”
Could there be a more perfect way to sum up Obama and his “supporting cast”? This is the most self-revealing comment ever made.
He can have peace when he’s inflicted so much damage on the other side that they stopped fighting.
This is especially true with Islam. Hit them hard enough and they’ll go away, all the way to the day they feel you’ve forgotten about them, and then they are back at your throat.
This is what happens when you send Churchill’s bust back to the UK - you forget the lessons he taught.
Anyway, bomb Mecca so that one stone doesn’t stand atop another and see what happens. The Saudis won’t like it, but then again they aren’t in a position to do very much.
As for Iran, 30 days of saturation bombing did wonders in GWI. People were surrendering to CNN crews.
Anyway, doomed to repeat it, and all of that.
This president is a MORON!
Sorry I had to insult morons.
And if the terrorist dons a U.S. military uniform and kills 13/wounds 30 unarmed soldiers, that's just "workplace violence."
“Obama knows nothing. He makes statements pulled from his butt. He must from time to time defend the indefensible. The current defense is to defend the indefensible statement attempting to defend the indefensible.’
He’s playing well for the other team.
