On my drivers test it asked what do you do when you fart while driving and you have 3 passengers.

I selected:

B) Roll up windows and turn heat on high

I got an A +, so I farted.

WASHINGTON (Reuters)- President Barack Obama has ordered about 350 more troops toBaghdad to protect the U.S. Embassy in the Iraqi capital and is sending top officials to theMiddle East to "build a stronger regional partnership" against Islamic State militants, the White House said on Tuesday.
Pentagon Press Secretary Rear Admiral John Kirby added that the move would bring the total number of U.S. military personnel responsible for bolstering diplomatic security in Iraq up to about 820.
Obama left Washington on Tuesday to visit Estonia and then attend a NATO summit in Wales.
The White House said Obama would be consulting this week with NATO allies on additional actions to take against Islamic State forces and "to develop a broad-based international coalition to implement a comprehensive strategy to protect our people and to support our partners" against the group. The Sunni Muslim militants have captured parts of Iraq and Syria.
As part of that effort, the White House said, the United States would send Secretary of StateJohn Kerry, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and Obama’s counterterrorism adviser, Lisa Monaco, to the Middle East "in the near-term to build a stronger regional partnership."
The White House announcement came on the day Islamic State released a video purporting to show the beheading of a second American hostage, journalist Steven Sotloff, raising the stakes in its confrontation with Washington over U.S. airstrikes on its insurgents in Iraq.
"The President has made clear his commitment to doing whatever is required to provide the necessary security for U.S. personnel and facilities around the world," White Housespokesman Josh Earnest said in a statement.
"The request he approved today will allow some previously deployed military personnel to depart Iraq, while at the same time providing a more robust, sustainable security force for our personnel and facilities in Baghdad," Earnest added.
----------
Obama was warned about ISIS (ISIL) over a year ago. Military brass has been extremely concerned over this president's lax attitude for national security threats and these are the military brass Obama hand picked if you remember he got rid of so many of our top echelon generals, admirals because they didn't tell him what he wanted to hear. Well it's happening again when the golfer-in-chief said we had no strategy to handle ISIS the Pentagon publicly stated otherwise which is not the normal M.O. for the Pentagon. They quietly go about doing their jobs and keeping all contingency plans updated and operational and they never counter a sitting president's press statements....but they did this time!
Obama always a day late (over a year on this issue and 6 years on many other issues) and a dollar short (trillions). Funny thing about Obama he could probably tell you all the golfing scores of Tiger Woods, the song placement on billboard top 100 for JayZ and Beyoncé, the stats on NBA teams and their rosters, but hell don't ask him to do that boring national security stuff....yawn....."is it vacation time yet?"
In case you are unfamiliar , we left Iraq because their government didn't want us there. If we have a plan for ISIS maybe it is not for public dissemination because of security reasons. We should have never helped destabilize Syria and people are just realizing we are backing the wrong dog in that fight. It turns out that Iran may just end up being our most valuable ally in confronting ISIS. We have been on the wrong side of everything in the middleast since 2003. We can still turn things, around but we are going to have to start eating some crow first.

More crap from the crapmeister? Explain Obama ousting Hosni Mubarak and supporting Morsi a member of the Muslim Brotherhood a known terrorist organization and what happened to Egypt which was pro-western because of Obama support of Morsi? Christians murdered, Coptic Churches burned to the ground and widespread unrest and gross violence! This went on for months finally the Egyptian Military stepped in ousted the terrorists Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood. Obama supported giving voice to Hamas another terrorist organization who is using UN built schools to warehouse rockets they lob into Israel. Hamas who sneak into Israel and board buses or other transit and blow themselves up so they can kill Jews. We know the money in aid that is sent to help the Palestinian People is used in terrorism but Obama still pushes giving more aid. UN concrete that was supposed to build houses, roads and schools instead is used for tunnels to commit terrorist acts against Israel. Our taxpayer dollars are funding terrorism!

Obama is the one who said Assad most go! Obama is the one who drew a red line that turned out to be joke! Obama doesn't have any coherent foreign policy but his actions/ inactions are spreading mayhem, more violence, explosion of terrorism across whole countries the entire M.E. is unstable. Saudis, Israel, Jordan, Turkey, and even the Kurds have expressed Obama can not be trusted! Libya has terrorist having a pool party in our former Embassy grounds. Turkey used to be a strong ally of America, Egypt used to be a strong ally of America, Jordan used to be a strong ally of America, Saudis used to be a strong ally of America, Israel used to be our strongest ally in the M.E. the list goes on and on and the difference is Obama's Foreign Policies compared to decades of foreign policies proceeding him!

This didn't start in 2003 this started in January 2009 and will continue until America can vote into office a different president who makes American interest FIRST and the American People welfare FIRST.

Obama's inaction in Iraq has left Iraq in a terrible situation for the Iraqis and for us because ISIL is stronger than it's ever been, better financed, better equipped and we the American People are their #1 target...thanks to Obama's horrible foreign policy blunders!

While some might think that this confusion is due to the unwelcome proliferation of targets on American planners’ lists, and there is a strong political if not operational case to be made for scaling back the expanding number of fronts in the war on terror. Most Americans, however, don’t seem to agree with that notion. With the exception of Gaza and Ukraine, two places where America has no intention of bombing anything, a plurality for a majority of Americans approved of strikes in Pakistan, Somalia, Iraq, Afghanistan, and even Syria when the time comes.

Texans lose in a big way with cheerleader Aggie Rick Perry who has no education relevant to public office. Texas has to deal with $10,ooo public paid for mansion .
Rick Perry is bought and sold to the highest bidder. The ugly side of Texas got the votes for Perry. Totally ignorant voters who know nothing about what issues face Texans.

You're just not happy that nobody here shares your obsession which is Obamaphilia.
It's a strong, almost abnormal attraction to Barack Obama and/or the First Wookie.

So you are suffering from a fear of defiant. From the few posts of yours that I have read I think you are probably the victim of stolidusphobia and that is too bad. I know that you are not responsible for your own mental shortcomings. People probably just assume you are mentally retarded because of your fart fetish. God bless you.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) held a private meeting with dozens of donors, elites and friends last week, a confab ostensibly about the final 2014 midterms push that also seemed aimed at demonstrating his political pull if he runs for president in 2016.

The first-term senator’s moves in advance of the presidential race have run parallel with his efforts to dull establishment GOP memories of the 2013 government shutdown he played a role in. To that end, part of his efforts in the next year will be showing that he has expanded reach within his own party.
