Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

""The most recent example came this weekend with the rescue of the Iraqi town of Amerli, a town that had held off a besieging ISIS army for more than a month. That siege was finally broken with a combination of U.S. airstrikes, Iraqi and Kurdish army units, and a Shiite militia.

The U.S. bombing runs were helping a militia that had doggedly battled U.S. forces in the years after the overthrow of Saddam Hussein. The militia is also supported by Iran and, according to the Associated Press, was being advised by officers of Iran's elite Revolutionary Guard.

The U.S. has repeatedly said that is not coordinating its efforts with Iran.

President Obama has ordered surveillance flights over Syria to track ISIS, which has its capital, Raqqa, in Syria. Obama has not authorized airstrikes against ISIS in Syria, but they would inevitably benefit the Assad regime.

Iran hasn't been the only antagonist of the U.S. to come to the aid of America's ally, Iraq. Shortly after ISIS shocked the world by overrunning much of northern Iraq, Russia sent several warplanes and helicopters to Iraq, putting the U.S. and Russia on the same side in Iraq while having a political confrontation over Ukraine.

In addition, many Iraqi Shiites in recent years have gone to fight in Syria to defend the regime of President Bashar al-Assad, whose government U.S.-backed rebels have been trying to topple. Many of those Iraqis who opposed U.S. goals in Syria are now returning home to join Shiite militias to fight ISIS.

Within the Islamic world, Iran, America's enemy, and Saudi Arabia, a U.S. ally, have jockeyed for dominance, often through allied militias. Iran is a Shiite country while Saudi Arabia is run by a Sunni monarchy.

One of Iran's most powerful allies is the Lebanese militia Hezbollah, which has sent forces into Syria to support Assad. Saudi Arabia has been funneling money and weapons to Syrian rebels.

Now, Hezbollah is poised to battle ISIS in defense of Assad -- and all three are traditional enemies of the U.S.

Possibly more surprising is Saudi Arabia aligned with Iran in its fear that ISIS could destabilize the region and threaten the influence of both governments.""

This is too crazy.

We should keep out.

This has more political intrigue than a James Bond movie.

The neocons are trying to stampede Obama into another Middle East War.

The Bush boys invaded Iraq twice, creating a failed state upon which all unrest in the region is based.

The Arab Spring was a reaction to Bush's push for 'democracy'.

It failed everwhere, Egypt is now a military dictatorship, Libya in turmoil, Syria in Civil War, Iraq splintering into 3 States..........

Time to leave it alone.

We failed miserably.

Let them settle it.

100+ rounds in office in 6+ years??

15 or 20 rounds a year.

Are you serious??

You're the last person on the planet to be calling anyone else delusional nitwit.
You're just picking up on a headline but totally missing the whole gist of the article. You seem to have missed these parts;
"The U.S. economy added 209,000 jobs last month, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported Friday. The number was a bit disappointing after 298,000 jobs were added in June, but still the broader trend remains "respectable", economists said.
Over the past six months, the economy has added 1.5 million jobs, marking the strongest six months for hiring since 2006.
"We're not losing ground. We're still in a recovery," said Heidi Shierholz, economist for the Economic Policy Institute. "But we're not seeing a big acceleration in job growth, either. We're back to the solid, but not stellar growth." "
"This recovery has been a long, slow haul, but it now seems to be hitting its stride.
About 8.7 million American jobs were wiped out in just two years following the 2008 financial crisis. The economy finally gained them all back earlier this year.
Blue collar industries like manufacturing and construction were the hardest hit sectors in the recession, and those jobs have started to trickle back. Manufacturers have added 99,000 jobs over the past six months, while construction firms have added 114,000 jobs since January.
Meanwhile, government jobs are starting to come back slowly too.
Jobs in these sectors tend to offer middle-class wages. The recovery is no longer dominated by hiring for low-wage retail and restaurant jobs. "
The bottom line stupid is that we're gaining jobs and not losing them.
You're an idiot Carol: you always have been and always will be!
All of those statements sound too much like candy coating..."bit disappointing" but "respectable"... "not seeing a big acceleration in job growth"..."long, slow haul"...

But this was the most important part:

Many Americans still think the economy is not fully recovered. According to the results of a CNN/ORC International poll released Friday, 41% of people surveyed rate the economy as "good", while 58% rate the economy as "poor."

http://money.cnn.com/2014/08/01/investing/jul...

That's all that matters.

But it's always the GOP's fault despite the Senate not bringing up the house-passed jobs bill or keystone pipe bill...or any other bill for that matter...for an up or down vote.

Obama sent Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel. That's enough. Besides, according to "snopes", Nixon didn't attend the funeral for Maj. Gen. John A.B. Dillard and Bush didn't attend the funeral for Lieutenant General Timothy J. Maude...the only other two generals killed in hostile action.

I don't understand why these cons insist on holding Obama to a higher standard than those presidents who preceeded him.

As the Democratic-controlled Senate blocked House-passed job-creation bills including legislation that would build the Keystone Pipeline, House Speaker Boehner said, "We're doing our part, but we need the president and his party to do theirs."

That's the way it works. It's just easier to blame the GOP when Democrats obstruct the process.
