    President Obama reminds me of the fellow who keeps letting "fat pitches" go by and misses opportunity after opportunity to get back in the game. He won't swing at the fat pitches and takes a 3rd strike to kill the rally! He is not Mr October, as they used to call Reggie Jackson! What did he do? Did he address the nation, show outrage and dismiss everyone in the website team? Did he tell the country that he was responsible for hiring the wrong people? Did he tell us that we deserved better after spending a billion dollars on a website that wasn't constructed correctly? Next, he missed the ball with ISIS, even calling them a "JV team" at one point.

In order to definitively defeat the Islamic State, or IS, group, they need moderate Sunni Muslims in Iraq to support their fight against IS often because they are the ones living inside the cities controlled by the IS group.
