The descent of Iraq into open civil war in the past week has not, to judge from his remarks on Friday, fundamentally changed that view.

He said that he wasn’t entirely surprised—things hadn’t been looking good in Iraq for a while, and we’d been giving the government there more help.“Now Iraq needs additional support to break the momentum of extremist groups and bolster the capabilities of Iraqi security forces,” he said. After all, as he put it,“Nobody has an interest in seeing terrorists gain a foothold inside of Iraq.” But there were limits:“We will not be sending U.S. troops back into combat in Iraq.”
If you're still blaming Bush, Oblamo doesn't have the answer.

My fat ass foe makes several opinions. Let's look at the facts regarding Oblamo:

He came into trillions in debt and has doubled it! Despite increased taxes, fees and whatever else the govt can take.

He pulled out of Iraq with no security agreement. Nothing regarding a future from Hillary or Oblamo, just left. I am surprised it took al Qaeda this long.

America did not expect Oblamo to fix things in six months. However, in the sixth year they do expect a better economy, better foreign policy and hope for the future.

Any way you look at it, Oblamo is a failure. Worst POTUS in history.

Even his own kin think he is the worst POTUS ever.

http://www.wnd.com/2014/02/obamas-cousin-hes-...

But here are some things to consider,

In a recovery, on average it takes 25 months to recover lost jobs. It took Oblamo 66 months to do this. Now for those that want to say how bad things were, history proves the worst the recession the stronger the recovery, yet by all measures this has been the worst recovery in US history.

A by-product of Oblamo, Kerry and Hillary foreign policy. Lib foreign policy is like the circus, three rings of fun with clowns running around!

Oblamo will never commit ground troops. Never!
Really he could care less. By the time Oblamo gets around to doing something the entire country will be controlled by the same person he freed in 2009.
Makes you think this is part of the plan based on his pro radical Islamic terrorist policies.
Right now you can't say he won't send ground troops. The events taking place in Iraq right now could create a scenario in which our troops might be put on the ground in order to facilitate about 2000-4000 Americans getting out of there. The question is; will they let Maliki fall? The answer is; probably, and there will be a blood bath.

Benghazi Suspect Captured by US Special Forces

We have to give thanks to our Special Forces.

Mastermind Captured!

Great job. I wonder who else will be captured?

It will depend on how much Oblamo is backed in a corner as to who else will be captured. Abu Khattala was not hiding, conducting several interviews with media in the TWO years after the terror attack.

The next capture will depend on if the regime deems it necessary.

The Oblamo administration is in free fall. Problem is they don't have a parachute.

Skepticism is rampant as actions based on political agendas occur.

Lies exposed daily.

Campaign promises end with excuses and blame.

And America asks when will this end?

First of all, you forgot the years in which the Democrats held the majority in the House AND the Senate. The only reason the Republicans gained any foothold was because of the voters, who wanted them in after seeing what the Democratic Supermajority was doing. Second of all, he has already announced that we ARE sending troops in. I just can't recall if the announcement was made from the golf cart or the latest fundraiser where he was schmoozing folks.

Setbacks, home and abroad, hurt Obama's standing: NBC-WSJ poll

President Barack Obama's political standing has eroded anew amid setbacks at home and abroad, diminishing public confidence in his leadership, a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll has found.

From the public's point of view, "Events have controlled Obama rather than Obama controlling events," said Democratic pollster Peter Hart, who conducts the NBC/WSJ survey with Republican counterpart Bill McInturff.

"You've got a lower rating for the president on competence than (President George W.) Bush, post-Katrina," McInturff said. "It's going to be very difficult for him to change his numbers."
