Over there: “U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron cut short his summer vacation to return to London and chair urgent meetings on the threat posed by ISIS in Iraq and Syria, calling the video ‘shocking and depraved.’”
President Obama went back to his vacation on Martha’s Vineyard Tuesday evening following less than 48 hours in Washington, leaving people puzzled over why he came back in the first place.
Obama’s two days in Washington were mostly quiet, and concluded with the president receiving his daily national security briefing in the morning, and joining Vice President Biden to huddle with members of his economic team in the afternoon.
Administration officials have insisted for weeks that the president just wanted to return to the White House for a series of meetings, but the explanation was met with a healthy dose of skepticism, since Obama rarely interrupts his vacations.

Below is the email I’ve sent to my congressmen. Please contact yours so that THIS time, the job can be done openly, completely, and Constitutionally.
“Having watched news of the escalating atrocities perpetrated by the self proclaimed “state” of ISIS, I’ve argued that we are not the world’s police force, and owe nothing to Iraq or anyone else in the middle east.
But, with the news today of the brutal torture and murder of of US citizen; James Foley and formal threats against this nation, I urge and implore you to draft a formal declaration of war against this “state”.
Having a son and two nephews, who, together, have served seven combat tours in the war on terror, I do not make this request lightly, or in jest. This movement of pure evil must be completely crushed, and now, we have the Constitutional authority to do it properly and completely.
We can not avoid a war we are already in. We must name our enemy openly and eradicate them to the last.”
JustAl#1: While I agree with what you say, we don’t have the right people in charge to carry it out. I hope in 2014 and 2016 we can sweep out the trash and get a fresh start.
Our current Generals are also acting more like politicians instead of warriors. I do not expect much action.
Anything Obama does, or will do, is too little and much too late. He may be outraged for the moment, but this afternoon he’ll probably be on the golf course with not much on his mind.
It isn’t about Obama. Obama isn’t “doing nothing.” Do you watch the news? Do you even listen to what Obama has been saying? Are you too dense to process this information?
Of course Obozo isn’t “doing nothing” he took the occasion of this murder to yet again defend islam. Although it’s hard to hear him over the deafening silence of the so called “moderate” muslimes.
At least he took time from his busy day of golfing and fanning racial fires here in the US. Maybe now he can back to the real important stuff like fund raising.
Maybe if one of HIS citizens was brutally beheaded, Obama would…. oh, wait. Never mind. At least he can rid himself of all that tension building up due to the world burning down.
Lunacy. You’re all totally nuts.
After expressing his visible outrage, he went for a four-hour golf round this afternoon. So much for being “deeply troubled”.
Obviously Cameron leads from the FRONT.
I heard Ofrauds very brief – brief today. Teleprompter Brief. Weak. Limp. No Passion. No Conviction and no Defiance against an Enemy in his ‘words, in his voice reflection’….not his comfort zone.
Obama has more conviction from the bully pulpit when he whines about U.S. Citizens – (his comfort zone) small town US citizens “…(also his comfort zone); “….So it’s not surprising then that they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them… as a way to explain their frustrations.”
Has Obama ever once, once in defiance and conviction, called out radical Muslims or Radical Islam for being, brutal savage terrorists clinging to their guns and religion…. ??? Of course not, it’s easier to call out people right here in the US (his comfort zone) who just want to make a decent living and lead peaceful lives in a ‘free country’…
Obama is a limp noodle when it comes to calling out Radical, murdering Mid-East religions – ISIS.
Right now, Obama is a little fish in a huge bowl and he does play the part.
Obama has more conviction, more passion and defiance reading that teleprompter when he is raging on and on to his base, “forward” – ‘Hope and Change’ and whining on and on about republicans, those ‘evil’ ‘obstructionist’ republicans in the congress, conservatives and the Tea Party….
Exactly what is Obama doing about this threat? He has to wait for ‘dispatch’ from Jarred. He is a effing Puppet!!
ISIS has declared War on the US – I don’t feel safe with him in our White House. He leads too much from behind. ISIS will be on the White House door steps before he even reacts!!
Pray for America. Pray for anyone in the path or clutches of these evil ISIS things.
We won’t bomb a known terrorist on the smallest chance a civilian might be sitting in the Mosque next door AT MIDNIGHT.
But we sent in our special ops men to rescue people who weren’t even there?
Seems a likely story.
The WH can safely say it ….whether it really happened or not.
All our special forces can think it was some other team, so they can’t deny it.
And it sort of makes Obama look good….which seems to be all he cares about.
I read on a site that this Foley reporter was very interested in the ” Freedom Fighters of Islam” and was very critical of Israel. It was to be a revival of the Middle East. Assad of Syria told him that these miscreants were cut throats( pun intended). Foley tweeted that the Christians of Syria were expendable. Now with his head resting on his back, I conclude- Don’t leave home without it. Did this idiot miscalculate?! Don’t get me wrong, Assad is a degenerate cut throat also.
“The future must not belong to those who would slander the prophet of Islam”
#12Oilguyfromalberta – Interesting. I am wondering if Foley said what he said to gain immunity or curry favor if you will, or if he really meant what he said?
All I can say is the tone deaf, dumb, stupid, blind, moronic liberals and progressives in this country truly believe the monster will eat them last….or that they will somehow be immune because of party affiliation…which may only work for a short period of time…when their usefulness wears out…
Mr Foley did not deserve to die, let alone with such brutal savagery – I could not watch it, Daniel Pearl was enough of a lasting, can’t get it out of my head memory for me – I feel so terrible for his family they must be suffering so…
Islamic State video shows conversion of Yazidis to Islam
Conversion or death is the new way of life in Iraq.
Drudge shows a couple headlines that are pretty scary for our potential of a future homeland terror attack:
ISIS has 12,000 foreign fighters, hundreds of Americans…
More British Muslims fight for Islamic State than Britain…
Former CIA Officer: ‘Lot of Communication’ Between ISIS and Mexican Cartels…
JOHN THE EXECUTIONER… (called the Beatle)
Mad Magazine’s mascot is Alfred E. Neuman.
His slogan is ”What, Me Worry?”
Obama fits that profile.
ATTORNEY GENERAL ERIC HOLDER’S Justice Department is opening a criminal investigation into the beheading by Islamic State militants of American journalist James Foley, the latest move by the Obama administration to use the criminal justice system to pursue terrorists.
Above all else, the Obama Administration wants to make sure that Islamic terrorists get their Miranda Rights and their taxpayer-provided ACLU attorneys.
And yet the Campaigner in Chief is reckless leaving our borders wide open and unguarded.
