Obama has proved himself a novice on foreign policy and shown once again his total lack of leadership.
His bumbling and over confidence portrays America as indecisive and weak.

Personally I think we shouldn't involve ourselves in a civil war that poses no threat to national security.

Obama took an oath,I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.

How many times has to failed to uphold that oath, while he chose certain laws to circumvent? He thinks he is above our laws...period. The change he talked about during his campaigns is change that will dump this country into the commode.

He says we can't afford inaction because that would undermine the credibility of our laws, positions etc. He says we must enforce our laws even though in every other aspect of his presidency, especially immigration, he picks and chooses which laws he feels deserve to be enforced. Can you spell hypocrite?

Lord, it gets so frustrating to see this guy in action or inaction. This country is going up in flames, and he wants to divert our minds from the mulititude of messes he and his his puppetmasters wrought upon this country.

You're right. Unfortunately, it's going to be hard to get our government back when all the big money along with the media is controlling it for their own benefit.

He definitely wants no part of drawing a line in the sand on the Arizona border. Our president is wrong a lot.

As did every single member of CONgress. It seems they too have forgotten their oaths and their responsibility to work for their constituents.

Every single member? Really? I don't think so.
My representative has voted exactly how I would have on the issues that concern me.
And they are voting NO on Obama's war, can't ask for more than that.

The context of my post was that every CONgress member took an oath of office. If they didn't they shouldn't be in their positions.

Obama wants to attack Syria cause Assad is white or at least looks white.
Obama is a white hating racist.

Obama was better off as a conniving community organizer. He's the type of person who feels at home making his own laws, regardless of the constitution. He is one and the same as ACORN. He's no national leader but he's one hell of a con man. And I'd still bet he wasn't born in this country.

Obama's crowning achievement: ObamaCare, is turning out to be a fiasco because the most important thing was to get something passed as quick as possible so we ended up with a disaster in the making.
Now our foreign policy is in disarray and some are saying Americas influence in the world had diminished more under this president than any other.
Obama should have never been president, he wasn't qualified and did not have experience at anything.

It would appear that he has no skill at organizing either.
