Posted on 07/19/2014 7:30:08 AM PDT by markomalley
President Barack Obama is "sitting on the sidelines" in the Ukraine and Gaza crises, making him little more than "President Nero" fiddling "while the world burns," Sen. Ron Johnson charged Friday.
The Wisconsin Republican and member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee blasted the president for attending fundraisers in New York on Thursday night, the same day of a "barbaric" attack on Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 and Israel's push into Gaza.
Johnson told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV that Obama's priorities are "outrageous."
"I'm hoping Americans are watching as President Nero fiddles while the world burns," Johnson said. "It is outrageous that we have the ground operations conducted in Gaza, we have an airliner knocked out of the sky blown out of the sky over Ukraine, and President Obama takes off for fundraisers in New York."

Obamao is one scum President
Americans ARE watching because they elected this fool and they have no other choice. They will however get a nasty surprise when this asses failure catches up and manifests itself in more concrete ways. 2 1/2 years might as well be eternity.
Having Obama eating hamburgers and sno cones while he plays pocket pool all day is probably better than the alternative - kind of like a self imposed impeachment with removal. He's sick of it - let him go -
As a general rule, the arsonist only helps put out the fire if it was set accidentally.
If the Republicans were willing to balance the budget, stop increasing the national debt as they have agreed to over and over again, reverse Obamacare instead of “replacing” it as they have repeatedly stated, I might think about voting for Republicans.
The GOP needs to back away from amnesty that is overt and amnesty that is covert through ‘border security’ legislation followed by guest worker-amnesty programs for the illegals.
The GOP wants to amend the Obama presidency, call me back when they decide to reverse it.....
"When it's time to relax...
Miller stands clear...beer after beer...
Miller tastes too good to hurry through...
When it's time to relax..
Time to PAAARTAAAY!!! Woo woooo!"
Bier her, Bier her, oder ich fall um, juchhe! Bier her, Bier her, oder ich fall um! Soll das Bier im Keller liegen Und ich hier die Ohnmacht kriegen? Bier her, Bier her, oder ich fall um!
....and a thief finds stuff before it is lost.
From Obama’s point of view his plans are working to perfection. Why should he interfere? In next to no time the USA will be defunct and the world will slide into a repeat of the dark ages for 1000 years.
barry was never qualified, nor fit for such a job.
At best, he MAY make an ‘okay’ elementary school principal. But that’s probably the limit to his ability as a ‘leader’.
I know, I know... even THAT is stretching things...
Ever notice there are never any blacks in his photo ops....
When some GOP politician complains about Obama and doesn’t include the words, “treason” “traitor,” or “impeach,” then the politician is simply discounted as a gutless coward RINO gelding.
“Ptui” on that politician!
You bet they are, but they are mainly watching these NeoCon republicans, like Sen Johnson
Everytime anything happens around the world, a NeoCon like John McCain steps up and says we have to invade, bomb or escalate.
Or, a couple a weeks, many NeoCons like Cheney, Wolfowitz, Kristol, Bremmer, and numerous others were out saying we have to re-invade Iraq.
My advice to Sen Johnson is he needs to stop worrying about Obama and start worrying Rand Paul because Rand Paul is kicking the NeoCons' ass on foreign policy.
If Sen Johnson is not careful, Rand Paul will get the GOP nomination in 2016 and Sen Johnson will then be forced to vote for Hillary.
"President Zero" fund raises "while the world burns,"
Never happen as Americans have chosen to be anesthetized by "American Idol," "Dancing With the Stars" and a raft of stupid reality TV shows.
I don't own a TV but I suspect a "Jay Walking" episode asking folks about the illegals on the border or the Israel-Hamas conflict would be very depressing.
I totally misread that headline at first. Whew!
soebarkah doing what islamists do.
“...elementary school principal.”????? I’m not to sure I’d want a “guy” like him around me kids. Also, being a principal would require some sense of management. More likely, Clown Prince nobama might be a hobo standing around at the edges of the playground, asking the kids if they want some candy.
The kenyan President is sitting on the sidelines because things are going just swimmingly in his Islamist world.
