White House Passing the Buck to Biden to Deal with Iraq Crisis
PJ Media ^ | 6/12/14 | Bridget Johnson

Posted on 06/12/2014 8:16:31 PM PDT by Nachum

As Ukrainian protesters rallied against the Kremlin-backed government, were killed by government forces and weathered a subsequent Russian invasion, President Obama left it up to Vice President Joe Biden to directly communicate with the Ukrainian government. Obama even went so far as a skip a national security meeting on the Russian invasion at the beginning of March, which Biden joined via teleconference. Now, it appears that foreign policy methodology is playing out again in Iraq. Last night, the White House announced that Biden had jumped on the phone with Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan “regarding the security situation around Mosul, Iraq, where elements of

This is Obama’s method of “Leading from Behind.”

And what better “behind” could there be other than that of Joe Biden’s?

Øbama is simply trying to impeachment-proof his sorry arse by letting Slow Joe lose Iraq completely. “See? He’s a complete fool. Do you really want to impeach me and hand it all over to him?”

This ain't gonna work no how.

Biden has flat run out of children to give high level, high paying make work no show jobs to.

Sorry Iraq, the Ukraine just flat got there first. Not that it did them any good

It’s a complex, multifaceted problem with life-and-death consequences for tens of thousands, requiring the attention of ... Slow Joe Biden?
This might go right at the top of the writ of impeachment.

It’s 3:00 am.

Do you “really” want Obama answering the phone call? Biden might be stupid, but is he deliberately harmful?

...White House announced that Biden had jumped on the phone...

Of course. Even on the phone in his own bedroom, Obama can't have a coherent extemporaneous conversation during a crisis in real time with an ally.

Better let Biden do it. Even if Biden puts his foot in his mouth eventually, he won't do it with ums and uhs and ohs during every third word.

I don’t want any of the clowns associated with this administration touching anything with moving parts.
They couldn’t run a two-year car funeral, particularly Plugs.
And Barney is VJ’s puppet. All B. wants to do is golf.

“Let JOE BIDEN deal with the Iraq crisis…!”

If you say it out loud, it sounds REALLY funny, just by itself…!

Ask the South Vietnamese, Biden was one of the ringleaders stabbing them in the back in 1975.

” - - - So Obama is trying to ‘Stevens’ Biden? - - - “

Hard to say.

Rumor has it that “Nurse” Valerie Jarrett has administered something to help Obama get through the night.

As with other foreign crises that involve the flagrant, uncontrolled use of guns, Obama uses the darkness of night to refresh himself, so to speak.

Benghazi is a well known secret example of Obama’s reaction to active shooting that does not involve children in American Schools, the NRA or Mexican Drug Lords.

Obama, knowing he would fail the test, sends Biden to take the test for him. It’s not very smart to send the village idiot to take a critical test for you-—you’ll fail the course. But.....studying for the test was apparently beneath BO; or, more likely, this is just another stage in his life where others have taken his tests for him.

Once again, only Jimmy Carter is happy about all this.

Where has Biden been lately anyhow? I thought he died and maybe Obama just hadn’t noticed. Or that he’d gotten on the wrong train and ended up in Wichita instead of Wilmington, or something...

His foot has uncharacteristically been absent from his mouth for weeks...

Biden has foreign policy experience. Marv Throneberry had baseball experience as well.

WTH can we trust to run this country? Who can begin to un-do the foreign policy damage of eight years? Who has the strength, the gravitas, to lead nations through Marxist globalization, Marxist global “climate change”, the Marxist global World Bank?

Obama has shipped the domestic wealth and money out of this country with both hands, as fast as he could, and brought in a million socialist minimum wagers from South America as the exchange, and forced working Americans out of jobs by a million, leaving capitalism alive only on Wall Street.

Corporations will soon be seen lowering the 6 figure saleries of the their top working personnel because they can, further hurting that 80% US tax base and taking more profit (for the global market).

It is too much for any one man to fix, so pray for God’s man to preside over our decline.

Jim, it’s nearing time for another summary of the landscape from you. Any ear to the ground stuff, troop movements, or general predictions coming your way, yet? Maybe before or after Independence Day! We need a Free Republic keyboard picnic and one of your “old sage” columns this summer.

Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us.
