Skip to comments.Rehearsal's over: Time for Obama to be a president
Posted on 06/17/2014 7:38:12 AM PDT by Hoodat
As fresh word arrives of Islamic militants continuing their full-speed assault on Baghdad and executing thousands along the way, President Obama rushed back to Washington Monday to convene national security advisers on a path forward.
Well, actually, that's not true. The commander-in-chief did not rush back at all from his long weekend getaway in southern California.
He arrived in Palm Springs' sunshine Friday. Saturday he spoke at the University of California-Irvine graduation. He, of course, did a Democrat fundraiser, a feature of almost every trip nowadays.
And then the president played golf, lots of golf. On Sunday he also phoned Spain's king with congratulations on a long reign. He returned to the White House Monday night.
Today, Obama's off to Pennsylvania for another speech. And then tonight he'll do two fundraisers in New York City, including a Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Gala.
Obama's daily intelligence briefing can detail for him what Germany's Angela Merkel told her husband in a cellphone chat. But on the IRS intimidation of political opponents, the ObamaCare debacle, the VA scandal and Bowe Bergdahl's suspicious disappearance from guard duty, among other things, by golly, the Chicago Dem professes to be out of the loop.
Perhaps Obama's trying to be Chauncey Gardner, get people thinking he can't possibly be as clueless as he seems. So, he must possess some kind of hidden wisdom.
Obama does like to see himself as a cool guy, calm, observant, thoughtful.
But there's cool. And then there's blase. And Americans, watching in shock as the awful sacrifices of lives, limbs and American treasure flood down the drain of futility in Iraq, would much rather have a national leader who at least acts like he . .

Didn’t know IBD was a humor/satire site.
We have a long wait for that to happen. This fool had absolutely no executive experience whatsoever.
Everywhere you look these days, he has a fiasco of his own making. His fingerprints are on everything.
A day late and a dollar short ...
The biggest “Islamic Militant” on Earth gets to sit in on White House cabinet meetings. Why? Because it’s his cabinet!
morons hire the high school stoner that never showed up for class and complain that he doesn’t show up for work.
Yep! And most of his "advisers" don't have a clue either as 90% of them came from academia. Even common sense no longer exists in the WH.
I call him SADIM GNIK.....everything he touches he RUINS.
After the death [murder ordered by Ahab] of Naboth the LORD said to Elijah the Tishbite:
Start down to meet Ahab, king of Israel,
who rules in Samaria.
He will be in the vineyard of Naboth,
of which he has come to take possession.
This is what you shall tell him,
The LORD says: After murdering, do you also take possession?
For this, the LORD says:
In the place where the dogs licked up the blood of Naboth,
the dogs shall lick up your blood, too.
Ahab said to Elijah, Have you found me out, my enemy?
Yes, he answered.
Because you have given yourself up to doing evil in the LORDs sight,
I am bringing evil upon you: I will destroy you
and will cut off every male in Ahabs line,
whether slave or freeman, in Israel.
I will make your house like that of Jeroboam, son of Nebat,
and like that of Baasha, son of Ahijah,
because of how you have provoked me by leading Israel into sin.
(Against Jezebel, too, the LORD declared,
The dogs shall devour Jezebel in the district of Jezreel.)
When one of Ahabs line dies in the city,
dogs will devour him;
when one of them dies in the field,
the birds of the sky will devour him.
Indeed, no one gave himself up to the doing of evil
in the sight of the LORD as did Ahab,
urged on by his wife Jezebel.
He became completely abominable by following idols,
just as the Amorites had done,
whom the LORD drove out before the children of Israel.
When Ahab heard these words, he tore his garments
and put on sackcloth over his bare flesh.
He fasted, slept in the sackcloth, and went about subdued.
Then the LORD said to Elijah the Tishbite,
Have you seen that Ahab has humbled himself before me?
Since he has humbled himself before me,
I will not bring the evil in his time.
I will bring the evil upon his house during the reign of his son.
Now, that sounds better. Resignation.
How can a person indoctrinated in Communism, Marxism, Socialism and Islam .. have one cohesive thought about success for America ..?? We are known to these entities as “the Great Satan”.
All of these ideologies have one goal - destroy America.
Why are we expecting Obama to love America ..??
I agree...resignation is more relevant.
Time for Zero to be an inmate.
Time for Obama to be president... of some other country.
indeed, if he was not a child on welfare and a real president, he would resign.
The Obama Show is such a flop, it should have closed out of town.
