Wartime President

140925-wartime-presidentThe man elected to “end war” has become a wartime president.

In a UN speech on Wednesday President Obama called the civilized world to arms against the barbarians. He sounded positively Bushian.

There can be no reasoning, no negotiation, with this brand of evil. The only language understood by killers like this is the language of force. So the United States of America will work with a broad coalition to dismantle this network of death.

Axis of Evil anyone? Dana Milbank thinks so.

Wartime

The WSJ (The Latest Mideast Breakdown) said he sounded like a “Nobel Peace Prize winner mugged by reality”.

The White House Front Door

Last Friday a knife carrying nut climbed the White House fence and walked through the front door without knocking. Ron Fournier blamed the VA. Dana Milbank blamed budget cuts.

Mark Steyn has pointed out that the first family’s presidential perks run over a billion dollars a year. The entire British royal family only sets their subjects back $57 million.

The American royal family travels in aircraft outfitted with a gym, theatre, and heat seeking missile protection. The president’s limo “The Beast” also makes the trip along with 45 or so other vehicles and 200 secret service agents.

I blame the guy who forgot to lock the door.

Better than his Advisers

140921-better-than-advisorsIn 2008 President Obama offered this self evaluation.

“I think that I’m a better speechwriter than my speechwriters. I know more about policies on any particular issue than my policy directors. And I’ll tell you right now that I’m gonna think I’m a better political director than my political director.”

Anything You Can Do, I Can do Better

Last week The Washington Post said the president doesn’t work well with others in the military. Mark Theissen, also in the Post, said Obama ignored his top general when he pulled all troops out of Iraq – allowing ISIS to move in – and he’s still ignoring him.

 

 

Doctors, Farmers, and the JV Team

140919strategy-cThe Senate just approved a continuing resolution to fund the government and train Syrian rebels to fight against ISIS. President Obama previously dismissed the rebels as “doctors, pharmacists, and farmers”. That’s a positive endorsement considering he called ISIS the “JV team”.

Scotland Yes or NO

The clock is ticking down for a yes or no vote on Scotland’s break with Britain, and things are getting ugly. Hope the clock’s not attached to a bomb. English politicians are pulling out all the stops in Scotland to buy no votes.

Keeping the Scotch in Scotland

Even Bill Clinton got into the act to say a yes vote could be financially risky. Big banks and businesses have threatened to leave Scotland if the yes voters win. On the bright side, that’s not an option for Scotch makers.
