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.

This is an example of true crazy talk, talk of total denial and lies. Obama has been funding and arming the "rebels" in Syria and it it those weapons and personnel making up ISIS. This jerk thinks people have no memory. Additionally, the reason any Iraqi weapons have gone to use by ISIS is the cowardly withdrawal and scuttling of the War on Terror by Obama and his anti-American rhetoric and actions since voting against US actions against Islamic terrorists. Starting a week after 9/11, America is wrong adherents like MC Patsy and his failure of a President had undermined American efforts to stem terrorists at every turn.

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.
Horse manure. First, you can't read, or intentionally distort what was said because you can't handle the truth, which is you pansies are cowards and undermined US efforts for political reasons under Bush. Obama's policies have strengthened the hand of jihadists in every single country in which he's meddled. ISIS formed from his policies in Libya, Syria and Iraq. The doped cowards making up the Democrat leadership and influence indeed throw rock concerts instead of doing anything worthwhile to help the tens of thousands dead because of their policies. Hell, you freaks put billions of dollars into denying third world countries methods of advancement, thinking solar energy will allow them to get out of their mud huts. Everything you say and do is a lie, so why shouldn't you be insulted?

Bush had no reason to lie and gin up a War in Iraq. If Saddam was still in power ISIL wouldn't be in Iraq. Obama didn't give weapons to ISIL. If the Republicans had their way we would have. They got the weapons from a fleeing Iraqi under trained army. Why the Army under was trained? Because they were new. Because one of Bush's puppets Bremer thought it would be a good idea to disband the Iraqi army and start new.

You're an idiot... all the bitterness and hate you have towards this country and President - go choke on it, you pathetic loser, LOL!

Step back from the kool-aid. When W left office those weapons were in the hands of American soldiers and Marines. As Barry and all of his under-the-desk sheep like you are so fast to claim, Obama removed the troops from Iraq. All of them.

The Iraqi army is undertrained because Obama pulled the plug too soon. Obama withdrew our troops before the Iraqi's were ready and failed to leave a residual force there that could have dealt with ISIS months ago. I really can't blame Obama though, I'm sure trying to run two wars requires alot of time and energy that would be better spent out on the golf course.

Bush has been out of office 6.5 years now, time to find a scapegoat.

Saddam used WMD's on his own people. His son's ran a school on gang rapes and torture..........I'm sure, you being a liberal could care less since the same was going on with children coming up through Mexico.

You're a wordy liar. It is Saddam's Baathists making up ISIL. Obama's undermining of US troops in the field starting in 2002 was followed by Obama abandoning the War on Terror, as he always planned. His meddling in Libya, his funding and arming of "rebels" in Syria, his abandonment of US weaponry in Iraq... all these are the sources of weaponry for ISIL. Obama even tried to get everyone to believe the Iraqi WMD in Syria used by his "rebels" was used by Assad, but the UN proved Obama's "rebels" used them.

Obama followed Bush's withdrawal plans, no one WANTED U.S. troops in Iraq anymore, and Iraqi troops were well-trained and armed. They simply didn't want to fight for an incompetent tyrant in Bush-appointed al-Maliki.

Please, realize that Bush's incompetent actions have had consequences. Stop trying to absolve the war criminal and his henchmen.

Faux News, Florida, and the USSC. They all made a horrible mistake, as Bush was the worst President in modern history. Gore, while boring and staid, would've been a better choice, at least. Even though his choice of VPs wasn't very good.

Look out for Bill O'Lielly....he's KINKY

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.
What are you doing on this thread? You're making too much sense.
