December 16,1998 WASHINGTON (CNN)-- From the Oval Office, President Clinton told the nation Wednesday evening why he ordered new military strikes against Iraq, and starts World War III with Muslims and Iraq when Clinton Lied and America Died you morons.

Just say No Clintons in the White House... Hillary a seriously flawed, bad candidate and dangerous to America caused by Bill Clinton's war mongering sickness... The Muslim people of the world do not like the Clintons... The Clinton's are dangerous....

Flack you get dumber every freakin day.
Obumbles just might go through with his amnesty for over 11 million lawbreakers.

Could an estimated 11 million illegal aliens tip our precarious national finances into insolvency? Possibly and does Obumbles care beyond the future entitlement Democrat voters? Doubt it. Meanwhilte, granting amnesty or legal status to illegals will generate costs in Medicare and Social Security alone of $2.5 trillion above any taxes paid in”(Daily Caller, January 31). Two and a half trillion dollars? Yep. That's Trillion with a T!”

And, "57 percent of all households that are led by an immigrant (legal or illegal) are enrolled in at least one welfare program." – Michael Snyder

And, according to the California Hospital Association, health care for illegal aliens is costing state taxpayers well over $1 billion a year. Eighty-four hospitals across California have already been forced to close because of unpaid bills by illegal aliens.

And, while it was harrying and stalling tea party groups seeking nonprofit status, the Internal Revenue Service mailed $4.2 billion in child-credit checks to undocumented immigrants. Critics say midlevel IRS bureaucrats continue to abuse the Additional Child Tax Credit program by dispensing $1,000 checks to families in this country illegally.

But Real Dave has no problem with that or Obumbles. He is on here 24/7 praising Obumbles and disputing his failures--a full time job.

Really, Obama knows exactly what he is doing. It's you un-American haters that put your ideology ahead of your own patriotism. You have no clue and your distaste for Obama clouds your judgement. I feel far safer with him than those two morons that created these messes, with the blood of American lives. You you aren't interested in helping then I suggest you at least shut the fk up and cry in silence like a man.

“A review of ISIS social media messaging during the week ending August 26 shows that militants are expressing an increased interest in the notion that they could clandestinely infiltrate the southwest border of US, for terror attack,” warns the Texas Department of Public Safety “situational awareness” bulletin, obtained by FoxNews.com ." "Showing interest" does not mean they have made any movement in that direction.
We are not the UK. They are the ones who should be worried and yet, they have made it very clear they have no intentions of going to war with ISIS. If they aren't worried about ISIS at their front door, I'm not worried about ISIS on another continent.

The “no strategy” comment from Barack Obama has turned into a nightmare from the White House. Unlike the “leading from behind” quip, which was given to Ryan Lizza by an anonymous staffer, this statement came straight from Obama himself. Despite the efforts of Josh Earnest to spin it afterward, the comment has reverberated, in part because it confirms what many people already think of Obama’s handling of foreign policy. It’s a Kinsleyan gaffe, as Aaron Blake writes today at the Washington Post:

As with all gaffes, the worst ones are the ones that confirm people’s pre-existing suspicions or fit into an easy narrative. That’s why “47 percent” stung Mitt Romney so much, and its why “don’t have a strategy” hurts Obama today.

Polls have increasingly shown that Americans view Obama as a weak commander in chief without much direction or heft t0 his foreign policy. The latest is a Pew Research Center survey, released shortly before Obama’s errant statement Thursday, that showed 54 percent of Americans say he’s “not tough enough” when it comes to foreign policy and national security.

Just 36 percent said Obama has shown about the right amount of toughness. Mind you, this is after he launched airstrikes in Iraq.

It was an odd press conference at the very best, but to have a press conference to say we don’t have a strategy was really shocking given the severity of the threat. That’s what’s so concerning to me,” Rogers (R-Mich.) told Wolf Blitzer on CNN.…

Blizter said White House aides have clarified Obama’s remarks to say the president meant a strategy specifically targeting ISIL in Syria, before asking Rogers if he was “happy with that.”

“Well, I’m not OK with it, and it just confirmed what we’ve been talking about really for almost two years: There has been no real strategy,” the congressman said.“I mean this just tells you how far we have to go and I’m just not sure the severity of the problem has really sunk in to the administration just yet. Clearly, that’s what that told me today.”

Rogers said Obama “absolutely” should confer with defense officials about options, but said that should’ve happened earlier.

“We are so far along into this, this is not like this happened last week or a few days ago,” Rogers said.“This is so frustrating that with all of this going on, with certainly all of the intelligence showing us the problems that are there, the president says,‘I want a strategy how to deal with this by the end of the week.’ It just tells you that, apparently, we’re not taking this seriously for some length of time. This should already be done.”

The president’s aim was clearly to defuse building expectations that U.S. military strikes in Syria were imminent as part of a broadening drive to defeat the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant. But his awkward choice of words to describe a policymaking process still in midstream seems likely to haunt him for some time.

The inartful phrase quickly went viral among right-leaning media outlets and Republican figures, pushing the White House into damage control mode. White House aides immediately went online and on TV to argue that he was simply pointing out that he had yet to settle on new military options for a broader assault on ISIL that has already led to more than 100 airstrikes on the group’s positions in Iraq.…

Thursday’s messy news conference capped off a month of difficult public statements from Obama on foreign policy issues. Back on Aug. 7, he made a brief prime-time appearance to announce bombing strikes against ISIL in Iraq, including some aimed at freeing religious minorities besieged on a mountain. It’s not clear in retrospect whether tens of thousands of Yazidi sect members were in fact trapped there or a much smaller number. U.S. official say some didn’t want to leave.

He made five more public statements on ISIL in the ensuing days, including a couple from Martha’s Vineyard, where he was vacationing. The last statement was a harsh condemnation of the Islamic group for its beheading of American journalist James Foley. Obama went directly from that statement to a round of golf, drawing criticism for insensitivity.

The impact and the danger of the no-strategy remark could be exacerbated by earlier Obama comments in which he seemed to dramatically underestimate the ISIL threat.

For weeks, White House aides have been fielding questions about the president’s comments to The New Yorker early this year suggesting that the group was a junior varsity team not as threatening as Al Qaeda.“If a jayvee team puts on Lakers uniforms that doesn’t make them Kobe Bryant,” he told the magazine.

ABC called this “a stark admission,” especially in the context of the year-long growth of ISIS. Martha Raddatz also points out the inconvenient contradiction between Obama and his Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, who called ISIS an imminent threat last week:

The reason why this gaffe does so much damage is because it’s ACCURATE. Josh Earnest may have tried arguing that “no strategy” really means “we totally have a strategy, but it’s obvious that the White House has nothing but tactical reactions on its collective mind. The President seems not to have heard Hagel’s assessment last week, as his remarks yesterday contradicted them. It’s become beyond clear that ISIS will continue its genocidal activities until stopped, and yet the message from Obama yesterday was basically to tell people to be patient while he catches up on the news. On top of that, we have the leader of the free world almost literally telling the press that he’s got no plan to deal with the situation, which can’t help but boost the morale of ISIS and encourage others to join them.

This is once again a press conference for which the White House failed to prepare, and had no message to deliver. Perhaps they’re worried about transparency, but when it comes to the unpreparedness of this administration to deal with a crisis, sometimes a little opacity can be … strategic.

Every one except you knows that Mark Rypien has been to the White House. Like Obama,in my opinion Mark Rypien is not eligible for the job of POTUS. I suppose that if he wanted to run on the Democrat ticket he could occupy The White House,and SCOTUS would approve. If he ran as a Republican it would likely be a different outcome.

They're rioting in Paris, they're starving in Iraq. There's hurricanes in Florida; ISIS is on the attack.

The President is vacationing, he has not a clue.

ISIS hates the Christians,

Hamas hates the Jew.

Turks hate the Kurds, Putin hates the Ukraine.

And Obama is on yet another political campaign!

But we can be tranquil, and thankful, and proud, For mans' been endowed with a mushroom-shaped cloud. And we know for certain that some lovely day someone will set the spark off, and we will all be blown away.

They're rioting in Paris, there are nuclear weapons in Iran. And the President plays golf each and every chance he can.

With apologies to the Kingston Trio.

The news last week that we have no plan with respect to ISIS should come as no surprise.

We have no plan to protect our borders; we are a country without plans and without leadership.

The President claims that he can do his job when he is vacationing or campaigning, but the results show that this claim does not rise to a half-truth.

The only person he seems to be able to communicate with one on one is the guy in his mirror.

Threatening to end run Congress on energy, climate and immigration is not the role of a President of the United States. It is not how government in a Republic is supposed to work.

Harry Reid has such a strangle hold on the U.S. Senate that Senators running for re-election have literally never had so much as an amendment to a bill passed in their Senate careers.

But Harry, he is worried about the name of the Washington Redskins and that "my Indians" in Nevada have been bought and paid for by the owner of the Washington Redskins. This author is unsure about the name Washington Redskins, but he is pretty sure that referring to "my Indians" is about as racist a comment as one could make.

Make no mistake, when Great Britain has their threat level from ISIS at its second highest level and our President is golfing, vacationing or campaigning 24/7, we should be afraid, very afraid.

But you Obumbles apologists, just keep on posting. It will be someone else's fault when there is another attack on US soil under Obumbles watch. Of course, it won't be his fault and he'll make a great speech, right before he tees off or hops on Air Force One for another campaign fundraiser.

To the tune of Bueller?, Bueller?...

Vegas?, Vegas?
