U.S. is the world's leading terrorist and supporter of terrorism. Believing anything else is delusional.

We'll be back in Bush's War before long. At that point I'll support impeachment.

This is Obama's Iraq war. All the talk meant nothing. Obama must be on some mind altering substance or he's losing it. Withdrawing our military from Iraq 2 years was a huge blunder, and he can't fix it now

Friday at the press briefing, CNN senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta pressed White House press secretary Josh Earnest on the notion of President Barack Obama bombing ISIS in Iraq means the organization is no longer a "JV" team.

Acosta referenced an interview with New Yorker magazine's David Remnick Obama conducted in which he referred to non-al Qaeda groups in Iraq as the JV team.

“The analogy we use around here sometimes, and I think is accurate, is if a JV team puts on Lakers uniforms that doesn’t make them Kobe Bryant,” he said.“I think there is a distinction between the capacity and reach of a bin Laden and a network that is actively planning major terrorist plots against the homeland versus jihadists who are engaged in various local power struggles and disputes, often sectarian.” Obama's ass over loads his mouth again.

“Yeah, but...”

"Bush's War?" If you recall, Bush asked for and received the approval of Congress (and the UN!) before attacking Iraq. Here, we have Obama waging war entirely on his own.

The war in Iraq was a huge blunder, Saddam Hussein kept extremists in check with an iron fist.

ISIS has been able to take over with terror, due to Iraq being destabilized.

Targeted air strikes is not a war… and only Congress can declare war. Another home-schooled right-wing tea-bagger who doesn’t understand the government that he hates so much, LOL.

The laughter here is deafening, as we witness Democrats (Feinstein, etc.) going from the hawkish rhetoric much more strident than Republicans (they didn't have a 9/11 yet), to the subversive peacenik politic of post 9/11 costing thousands of our US troop's lives, now back to the convenience of more hawkish stances.

Marxists are intellectually crap without any redeeming character, or value.

Patty, you are the perfect representative of the Obama administration mentality. Only in the left wing, progressive world is bombing another country NOT an act of war.

You need to read the constitution again instead of wiping your ass with it.

When Presidents Acted Within the Constitution..........and Resigned..........oh Mr. Obama.

Washington (CNN)– Four decades after President Richard Nixon resigned, a slight majority of Americans still consider Watergate a very serious matter, a new national survey shows. But how serious depends on when you were born.
The CNN/ORC International poll's release comes one day before the 40th anniversary of Nixon's resignation on August 9, 1974. With the Watergate scandal escalating, the second-term Republican president had lost much of his political backing, and he faced almost certain impeachment and the prospects of being removed from office by a Democratic-dominated House and Senate.

I have seen you complain about Jews like Feinstein, Schumer,Lois Lerner and Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Yet, you support Jews anyways.

It seems that you don't make the connection that Jews are your enemy.

ISIS had good friends in the W H until even Democrats couldn't stomach their beheading Christian children. So Obama has his own Iraq war now. Except he isn't nearly as intelligent as President Bush. He will screw this up so badly. Come November the Democrats will lose seats in the House, and the Senate in veto proof numbers,

We need boots on the ground in Iraq. This is completely different from Bush W lying his way into a war we had no business being in.
