I, for one, welcome our Muslim overlords and President Hussein. I wish them success. Allah has promised us 72 virgins and a fruit basket.

Obama's first of his 72 Virgins must have been Vera Baker.

America must chose between the lesser of two evils: Assad vs ISIS. America must support Assad in his efforts against ISIS!

President Obama has dealt with this crisis brilliantly... imagine had McCain been in Office he would have given ISIS weapons... adding to the weapons that George W Bush left in Iraq that ISIS got their hands on. Thank God we finally have leadership in the White House.

Congress authorized another war? I musta missed that. Did the Pope order Obama to protect Christians throughout the world? Or just the ones who live near oil? STOP SPENDING MY TAX MONEY ON ILLEGAL WARS.

And that reporter from New Hampshire was killed by one of the dudes Hussein freed from GITMO illegally to get Private Muslim back.

Shhhh! Don't say the VB words out loud. The last fool to say that was an eight year old kid in TN during a visit from the First Lady. Evita...I mean Michelle, then literally took the kid's lunch away. Now she got all the kids eating gluten free bread and gruel. Very Dickensian. Very sad.

US Attorney General Eric Holder, who is black, has announced that the Foley "incident" will be investigated, and the perpetrators brought to justice.

In fact....

wait for it

Holder announce that Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson has volunteered to lead the investigation in Iraq and will be arriving in Mosul today, alone,

unarmed,

carrying a cross,

with a rainbow bumper sticker in place of INRI.

Who needs Robin Williams? Frigging quitter!!!!!!

It was Obama's foreign policy failure that has allowed ISIS to grow in Syria and Iraq. Obama is already in retirement and does not care about the safety of Americans anywhere in the world, including here in America.

Does Holder or anyone really think "John" the executioner is frightened by Holder's long memory and long reach? These guys want to die and America should help them out.

President Obama had a very good day yesterday. From ISIS, to the Ebola patients being cured to the relative calm in Ferguson, the President is managing his duties well.
Bad things happen. It's how you face life's problems that makes a difference in the long run.
Obama is clearly a strategic thinker who understands political change and the nature of government. He must have had some good classes in those subjects while an undergrad majoring in poli sci. He thinks like a political scientist. Most pundits don't and don't really understand social science and social science analysis. They are playing checkers when you need to be playing chess. Major issues aren't decided or solved in one week. You need to have both vision and understanding and a flexible policy to meet changing conditions. Personally, I suspect that when historians are able to look at the records in the future they will find that Obama has the best understanding of foreign policy of any president since FDR.

Obama has set the world on flame. Ferguson to ISIS are products of Obama's lack of leadership and dislike for America.

The Marxist Democrat Party is a majority of dopers, slackers, weaklings, playboys and sexual morons now. Mass killings of their next door neighbors could be happening and the cowards would do nothing. Obama's allowance of Islam's most radical terrorists to infiltrate the US may indeed by the only way to get Democrats back to work.

There is little outrage and calls for justice from the Marxist Democrats concerning the decapitation of Foley because he was White. However, if he had been Black, they'd put on a rock concert with lots of dope, while tens of thousands of Blacks died in Africa. Democrats always find a way to feel good about themselves.

That statement right there is just warped. I have yet to hear anyone say anything disparaging about Foley and his family. Nothing but compassion and sadness has been displayed.

Your idea of someone who considers themselves "liberal" is just as divisive and vitriolic as the crap that comes out of any religious fanatic's mouth, Christian, Islamic, whatever. They all have the same goal, mind control.

The way you express yourself resembles the very thing you say you hate.

Take a look in the mirror, that is what a fanatic looks like.

All that fool has is delusional crazy talk... you have to remember that you're dealing with tea-bagging right-wingers who are mentally unstable, and that instability has been exacerbated by the reality of there being a Black President. Just sit back and enjoy their insanity... because all they have is a bunch of angry and mean words to spew, LOL.

Faux News will twist any situation beyond all recognition, then brainlessly blame Obama for it.

Had he gone into Syria with airstrikes and/or boots on the ground, they'd have attacked him for that. They're attacking him now for NOT doing it. You can't please people dedicated to your destruction.

Faux News is NOT American. It's run by a paranoid, extremist, Australian crazy man. Shut it off.
