MSM: The American People Are The Reason Why Obama Appears Inept

By 19 Comments 1,473 views

In a week when we are treated to one of the best, but more depressing headlines of the year, Daily Mail’s “Obama’s Monsters Ball,” we have media apologetically rationalizing Obama’s announcement that he was ordering military action in Iraq, “if necessary.”  The propagandists at the NYT used the remorseful headline, “Obama, With Reluctance, Returns to Action in Iraq.”

Barack Obama

Apparently the media is determined to convince us that Obama is unenthusiastic about U.S. military action in Iraq.  Other than a psychopathic narcissist, is there really anyone who wants to go to war?   This is a continuation of the tired meme we’ve been pumped with for six years, . . .  “Obama inherited a mess of such proportion, . . . it’s all just too much for anyone.”   Here’s news for the NYT and its ignorant ilk, . . . the current mess in Iraq is of Obama’s making.

Obama notified the enemy of his intent and his timing even before he was elected to the White House.  Once elected, he stood at the teleprompter and repeated his mantra of “I’m leaving Iraq” at every opportunity, and was particularly proud of his definitive timing.  Did he have a plan?  Did he ineptly enable the enemy to prepare and then launch its onslaught?  Did ISIS use the knowledge and overnight take a third of Iraq, almost unrestrained, gleefully slaughtering, murdering, and beheading women, men and children indiscriminately?

The MSM uses a very sly phrase in every article, or TV reference to this disaster, telling us about the “war-weary public.”
That means YOU dear reader, YOU don’t want to have anything to do with war.
YOU don’t want military action.
YOU are the reason he vacated Iraq so quickly and bafflingly.
YOU care about people being slaughtered, but YOU don’t want your Commander In Chief to take action, to be a leader.
YOU are the reason he is so indecisive.
YOU are the real reason he is so incompetent.
YOU are the reason the whole world has lost its confidence in America — that is, all except all the dictators in Africa enjoying a State Dinner at the White House.

YOU are the reason this President appears inept — because he’s not really a bungler, he’s just doing what YOU want.  He simply reflects your wishes and dreams, remember?  And YOU are War Weary.

The public actually fears that its President will make another mess of things.


A constituent of the vast baby boomer generation with a career which has been fortunate to know the ponderous corporate worlds, as well as the intimately pressurized, and invigorating entrepreneurial domains of high tech and venture capital, I have harvested my share of mistakes meandering through corridors of enterprise from Silicon Valley, to London and endless, colourful, sometimes praetorian points in between. The voyage has provided an abundance of fodder for a pen yielding to an inquisitive keyboard, a foraging mind, and a passionate spirit. Whether political or business or social or economic or personal, is it not all political? It is a privilege to write, and an even greater privilege to be read by anyone, and sometimes with the wind at my back the writing may occasionally be legible. I do not write to invite scorn, nor to invite respect, but if I get really lucky the writing can stimulate thinking. I also write for the very selfish purpose of animating my own processes, and engaging the best of what life offers. Above all, whether biting fire or swatting shadows, I am grateful to be gifted the freedom to write and publish whatever flows down to the keyboard. To all those who enabled this freedom, and to all those standing guard to preserve it, I am indebted.

    “When people see a strong horse and a weak horse, by nature, they will like the strong horse”, Osama bin Ladin (in 2001) comparing al-Qaeda to a strong, and therefore, likable, racehorse.
    Lee Smith wrote a whole book about this concept.*
    He explained what he termed the “strong horse” principle in Islam according to which “violence is central to the politics, society, and culture”.
    The strong horse is the person, tribe, country, or nation that can impose its will, the “strong horse”, wins.

    Obama is, according to this principle, an exceedingly weak horse.
    He always blames others for his own failures at every stage.
    In Iraq, with ISIS ascendent, Obama’s lap dogs in the media are helping him by blaming us.
    What must they do when Obama’s own liberal allies disagree so vehemently as, say, Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) ?
    “It takes an army to defeat an army, and I believe that we either confront ISIL now or we will be forced to deal with an even stronger enemy in the future. Inaction is no longer an option. I support actions to use our military strength and targeting expertise to the fullest extent possible.”

    In Obama’s case we have only half a weak horse, and it’s the tail end.

    “. . . . The strong horse is the person, tribe, country, or nation that can impose its will.”

    The progressive statist apologists have always ignorantly accused America of aggressively abusing its might around the world to plunder and steal the wealth of other nations. This clueless, self-hating Ignorance understands little of what the “strong horse” has meant to peace of mind to hundreds of millions around the world. America cannot maintain peace everywhere, but it has, for a half century, been a good friend to its allies. To them, America has provided peace of mind, plus to populations of many more countries, it has provided some stability. There will always be strife where humans are being human, nevertheless, no other nation in history has done this. None. Ever.

    I can attest to the veracity of this unwritten appreciation from people all over the globe, having spent much time in many corners of this planet, from the Middle East to Asia.

    Meanwhile, America’s self-haters denigrate it, and applaud their self-hater-in-chief.

    Sadly, it will be too late, but we can rest assured that once this Presidential term is over, many sycophanting rats will tell some truths about this fraud and many red faces will surface. Meanwhile, another one of his brothers has surfaced telling a very different story about the father of his brothers “dreams.”

    @James Raider: Good point my friend. But then again, I for one have always believed he doesn’t give a damn whether Christians are eradicated any more than he does about the Jews. So riddle me this.

    As the MSM and of course this administration only want to report the civilian deaths CAUSED BY HAMAS and in turn use it to vilify Israel and the so called Muslim haters, can one assume we will be seeing the video of the innocent civilians that will be killed by our bombing of ISIS? Short answer. NOT! I can’t imagine any scenario in which his loyal lackeys would allow their esteemed leader to be portrayed in any manner that would tarnish his Nobel Prize and his march to sainthood. and one wonders why he and his minions make me sick?

    . . . . he doesn’t give a damn . . . .

    Joetote, that about says it all.

    America has a President who doesn’t care, did not care, and will not care. He’s being handled by individuals hellbent on changing the Nation, but he doesn’t even care about that, — “$100,000,000+ in expensive holidays, Air Force One, and a weekly fundraiser to make sure a monument is built to commemorate me into eternity, and life is good.”

    I mention above this clown doesn’t give one damn about Jews or Christians. Also, over on my blog, I mentioned the fact that any actions this guy is taking to “prevent a possible genocide” as was the B.S, line yesterday is purely a political move to save his sorry ass and hopefully his party”s.

    Well, here it is!

    “The situation near Erbil was becoming more dire than anyone expected,” said a senior administration official, speaking on the condition of anonymity to describe the White House’s internal deliberations. “We didn’t want another Benghazi.”

    From “this is a Javee team” in January to the above. And nothing but bullshit excuses and a charge by President Bozo that this was in fact an “intelligence” failure! Intelligence failure my ass! Complete incompetence by the Clown in Chief and for that matter, maybe it is a lack of intelligence. I guess the so called smartest man ever to grace the office is nothing more than a brainwashed ideological lemming, blindly clinging to his hard core leftist, ideals.

    And as I say above. He sure as hell doesn’t care! If he did, he would have actually listened to the people who were in a position to know. but then again, that is probably hard to do since he is firing every competent soldier or leader i all of our armed services and clamping a vise on our intelligence community!

    “We didn’t want another Benghazi!” my ass!

    He ordered airstrikes for one reason. To look Presidential and hopefully once again bullshit a lazy, uninformed electorate into once again thinking Mr.Wonderful will once again come to the rescue!

    Well kids, sorry to inform you, but there is no Mr. Wonderful! Unfortunately at this time all we have is Mr. Bring The U.S. To It’s Knees! And we , We The People, are solely the blame for this! Sleep on that!

    What these people don’t realize is that LEADERS do what they think is right, regardless of public opinion; they have to have enough confidence that their convictions are correct to go against the flow. That’s what Bush did with the surge and, though Obama cannot bring himself to admit Bush was right and he (and Hillary) were wrong, it proved to be the winning bet.

    Compare that to Gen. McChrystal begging Obama for 30,000 troops for a spring offensive in Afghanistan to close the books on the Taliban and Obama weighing every possible political nuance and chance until it was simply too late and the opportunity had passed.

    Obama is no leader. He is, always has been and always will be just a community organizer; a rabble-rouser. Nothing.

    ISIS can bury hundreds of children while still alive, they can rape thousands of women, they can crucify and slit throats, that’s ok, but don’t try to insult a gay athlete or impugn a wealthy Georgestown Law student who wants or needs free condoms. This type of behavior will piss off Obama and you will be considered an enemy.

    How many people supposedly are signed up for ObamaCare?
    Because 331,000 of them have provided NO proof of their affidavit that they are here LEGALLY.
    IF they cannot provide this proof soon, Obama is going to look like an idiot again!
    ObamaCare will be forced to drop them.
    It’s all our fault.
