After President Barack Obama breathlessly addressed four different foreign-policy issues during a 10-minute statement, he summed up the state of a crisis-filled world in one sentence.

"We live in a complex world and at a challenging time," Obama said.

Obama touched on the laundry list of global flashpoints situations during a statement from the White House on Wednesday the disputed elections in Afghanistan, the negotiations on Iran's nuclear program, the Israeli-Palestinian crisis, and, finally, the conflict in Ukraine.

“We live in a complex world and at a challenging time,” Obama said.

“It’s all just a part of this rich tapestry we call life.” replied moi.

Perhaps, but the diplomatic touch of the Kenyan Klown has made it a whole lot more challenging than it needs to be.

Just so they can address two conflicting positions simultaneously.

While I agree that he’s a curse, Obama is neither ancient nor Chinese.

Ayup, we do live in such a time.

And, Barack, you have absolutely no clue why.

But don’t feel too bad about that, Barack... maybe 50% of “conservatives” have no clue why, either.

The remainder know it’s because greater America (I’m talking about general trends, not necessarily every single solitary person) needs to put God first again, and isn’t.

Global Tranquility to the kenyan is world Islamicization. He has, indeed, increased Global Tranquility in his view.

Well let me amend that to say... every single solitary person needs to do that from the viewpoint of personal salvation.

But even a lot less than that would still suffice to turn America into a second gospel witness in the world even though it has now muffed its first gospel witness.

Do you suppose he has noticed the Russian army tank battalion invasion and ground battle in Donetsk? As soon as I saw Putin talking to Merkel at the world cup, I knew, there goes eastern Ukraine.

This video is full-on tank to tank and artillery battle - impressive war footage, from a distance.

But but just two days ago Mr. Less Than Earnest said something to the effect about what a tranquil world we live in thanks to Obama.

Buuuwaaaahahahahaha

These morons can’t keep their stories straight more than 48 hours. Pray we don’t get vaporized in the next 2.5 years.

Obama says we live in a complex world?

I guess he has not looked at youtube lately.

For the first time in my life...

Somebody teaches me to play the lead guitar to rock songs

Somebody teaches me to rebuild a vintage carburetor

Somebody teaches me how to mortar cinder blocks

Somebody teaches me how to prune citrus trees, etc....

All for nothing but a gracious comment.

God bless the USA and to hell with Obama and his Communist minions!

It is time to run them out of town.

A good president would have finished with...”but I have faith that left to their own devices in a world with liberty and freedom under a constitutional republic can accomplish great things.”

Oh wait, that was American. Obama hates this country.

We live in a complex world and at a challenging time,”


To paraphrase John Wayne

“We live in a complex world and at a challenging time. The world is a more complex and the times more challenging when you are stupid, incompetent and duplicitous”

"We live in a complex world and at a challenging time,"

Yes We Do.
But we have a community organizer with ZERO CREDIBILITY at the helm.
We are doomed. . . .

“We live in a complex world and at a challenging time,” Obama said.


That’s especially true if your guiding principles and ideology is one you need to keep hidden from the majority of the citizens you are ‘supposed’ to represent and lead.

Before I had even read the other posts on this thread, I just knew that this photo was of Greg Brady’s bad luck ‘tiki’ thing.
