It has more to do with Obama surrendering to Al Qaeda and being an ignorant buffoon.
The world also knows Obama is a pathological lying fraud.
Next question?
Okay, here's the next question:
Watch this and tell us if your hero, Andrew Napolitano, is still your pick for the next President of the United States of America.(Notice the kiss he gives to Jon Stewart on the Daily Show.)

Follow up question:
Explain why Napolitano is NOT an "ignorant buffoon" and Obama is.

Dry spells are not caused by man....

in the NYTs....

"The answer is this: At present, the scientific evidence does not support an argument that the drought there is appreciably linked to human-induced climate change.

The drought has many attributes of historical droughts over that region — in particular, a lack of storms and rainfall that would normally arrive from the Pacific Ocean with considerable frequency. It resembles the droughts that afflicted the state in 1976 and 1977. Those years were at least as dry as the last two years have been for the state as a whole."

Telecom Giants Drag Their Feet on Broadband for the Whole Country

"Can you stream me now?"

If the answer is no, you're probably going to be looking at the spinning wheel of death on your laptop for a very long time. After making a big, bold promise to wire every corner of America, the telecom giants are running away from their vow to provide nationwide broadband service by 2020. For almost 20 years, AT&T, Verizon and the other big players have collected hundreds of billions of dollars through rate increases and surcharges to finance that ambitious plan, but after wiring the high-density big cities, they now say it's too expensive to connect the rest of the country. But they'd like to keep all that money they banked for the project.

In 2010, the Federal Communications Commission announced the National Broadband Plan, which promised to provide 100 million American households with high-speed cable by 2020. Verizon has been expanding FiOS in major markets, and AT&T has been expanding its U-verse service. And now, instead of spending that war chest digging up streets and laying fiber cable, the cable and telephone companies have invested in a massive and very successful lobbying push. They are persuading state legislatures and regulatory boards to quietly adopt new rules—rules written by the telecoms—to eliminate their legal obligations to provide broadband service nationwide and replace landlines with wireless. This abrupt change in plans will leave vast areas of the country with poor service, slow telecommunications and higher bills.

This is good news if you own stock in Verizon, but very bad news if you have a small business that's not in a city already wired up.

Saddam would have become Obama's problem. He can't handle the ones he's already got.
But at least since Obama surrendered in Iraq, he can pretend like it doesn't exist. Like he does with the rest of the Middle East.
Why do we never hear any news about Afghanistan? Is he pretending like it doesn't exist? Why doesn't the liberal media keep Afghanistan in the news like they did 24/7 in Iraq?
Talk about an invisible war....
Obama didn't surrender in Iraq you goddamned liar! He withdrew our troops on a timeline agreed to and signed off on by George W Bush. Every morning I go through the national news and just about every day there's a story that relates to Afghanistan nitwit.
You're an idiot Carol!
