As usual the president is thoughtful and measured and comes to the correct decision to bring about total success even as all the critics scream for him to do anything... he waits and does the right thing. It makes me so happy everytime I think about the fact that we the people elected this great president twice.

The 12:50 PM Obama statement about the horrific Foley murder/decapitation was well inspired and addressed the philosophical issues Bush before him addressed. Obama ended his statement with "we will do everything necessary to protect... etc." We can assume this means we will do everything necessary EXCEPT ridding the world of ISIS in a concerted effort Obama has undermined and halted in his Presidency and starting only weeks after 9/11.

You've got it back asswards... Obama's funding and arming of the so-called "rebels" in Syria was funding and arming ISIS. Those were the barbarians committing the same cruelty you see now, and Obama supported them. Stop lying to yourself.

Had the U.S. forced regime change in Syria through military action, there would be a HUGE power vacuum that would have been immediately grabbed by ISIS.

Remember, Obama was against Assad and on the side of the Syrian rebels, which included al Qaida and militant Islamists.

Repigs demanded congressional approval on military force. When Obama complied the House dittered on a vote. Same delay strategy

You're a dishonest troll. Checking the actual Executive actions funding and arming the Syrian "rebels", eating human hearts and establishing the new caliphate with the Libyan "rebels" Obama also armed, should give you a clue.
