The Collapsing Obama Doctrine
Wall Street Journal ^ | 6/17/14 | Dick and Liz Cheney

Cheney re Obama: Rarely has a U.S. president been so wrong about so much at the expense of so many.

As the terrorists of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) threaten Baghdad, thousands of slaughtered Iraqis in their wake, it is worth recalling a few of President Obama's past statements about ISIS and al Qaeda. "If a J.V. team puts on Lakers' uniforms that doesn't make them Kobe Bryant" (January 2014). "[C]ore al Qaeda is on its heels, has been decimated" (August 2013). "So, let there be no doubt: The tide of war is receding" (September 2011).

Rarely has a U.S. president been so wrong about so much at the expense of so many. Too many times to count, Mr. Obama has told us he is "ending" the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan—as though wishing made it so. His rhetoric has now come crashing into reality. Watching the black-clad ISIS jihadists take territory once secured by American blood is final proof, if any were needed, that America's enemies are not "decimated." They are emboldened and on the march.

Obama Doctrine: Do Nothing. If pressed, go play golf. If all turns out well, claim credit. If the SHTF, blame Bush.

"Can you please explain what your president is doing?" "Why is he walking away?" "Why is he so blithely sacrificing the hard fought gains you secured in Iraq?" "Why is he abandoning your friends?" "Why is he doing deals with your enemies?"

Because that's what happens when a radical Muslim is disguise is "elected" POTUS.

Like the Exorcist meeting the Devil.

"Especially important is the warning to avoid conversations with the demon. We may ask what is relevant but anything beyond that is dangerous. He is a liar. The demon is a liar. He will lie to confuse us. But he will also mix lies with the truth to attack us. "

This is good:

“In one Arab capital, a senior official pulled out a map of Syria and Iraq. Drawing an arc with his finger from Raqqa province in northern Syria to Anbar province in western Iraq, he said, “They will control this territory. Al Qaeda is building safe havens and training camps here. Don’t the Americans care?”

“Our president doesn’t seem to. Iraq is at risk of falling to a radical Islamic terror group and Mr. Obama is talking climate change. Terrorists take control of more territory and resources than ever before in history, and he goes golfing.

"Dick Cheney has no credibility on this issue. His own boss was so thoroughly discredited on these stupid military campaigns by a constant drumbeat of lies,
exaggerations, and downright libel by the mainly slime media
by 2008 that the people ballot-stuffing demonrats of this country elected a Kenyan exchange
student to replace him."

Fixed it for you.

Once is happenstance, twice is coincidence, the third time it’s enemy action.

I’d say it’s a safe bet we can change “rarely” to “never.”

"That’s an easy one.....on the green in two"

Does anyone actually know if he is any good at chasing a little white ball? I know Clintoon liked to cheat. Based on his demonstrated athletic skills, I'd be surprised if he can get on the green in 20...

It can’t collapse.

Obama never had a doctrine.

A president has to be given space. This one has had his space, and it is time for someone of stature to explain what they see as potential treason. Perhaps Bush is the guy to deliver that.<<

I wish it were so.

But I think there is a greater chance of Bush giving a good old boy “hyuck, hyuck” and going into his amiable hayseed doofus act.

His only doctrine is “destroy America”.

I don’t know where the money would come from to fix this. We are way beyond broke. I’m sure seizing retirement accounts is just around the corner. Russia and China are looking at this wounded country in a whole new way, what are we going to do when one of them makes the move?
We are not what we were even 5 years ago.
And who knows what is coming across the border

The Obama Doctrine can be summed up in two words:

“Allahu Akbar.”

And the sooner everyone recognizes that, the better.
