Obama dropped 100,000 bombs. Mocks Trump for 59 bombs

Barack Obama patted himself on the back again, and Politico posted the selfie in a story:
Obama: Not bombing Syria 'required the most political courage'
I double checked. It was Politico, not The Onion.

First, some background. Norway awarded Obama the Nobel Peace Prize for not being George Bush in 2009.

From the lefty Consortium News site:
As Obama’s murderous proxy wars in Iraq and Syria have spun further out of control, U.S. special operations forces and U.S.-trained death squads on the ground have increasingly been backed up by U.S. and allied air forces. Four years ago, as Obama was inaugurated for a second term, I wrote that the U.S. and its allies dropped 20,000 bombs and missiles in his first term. In his second term, they have dropped four times that number, bringing the total for Obama’s presidency to over 100,000 bombs and missiles striking seven countries, surpassing the 70,000 unleashed on five countries by George W. Bush.
So the lefties admit their guy was a trigger-happy chicken hawk who unlike Bush never spent a day in the military.

Which brings us to Obama's onanism as reported by Politico:
Barack Obama defended his decision not to bomb Syria as president in an interview published Monday, casting his controversial decision as an act that “required the most political courage.”
Obama spoke with Jack Schlossberg last week before accepting a John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage award. Schlossberg, Kennedy’s grandson and a member of the award committee, released a transcript of their conversation in a Medium post on Monday.
Sending troops into harm’s way was “the hardest issue that I dealt with,” Obama said, adding that seeing and knowing people younger than Schlossberg, 24, “would be in a really dangerous situation, that was tough.”
“But I actually think that the issue that required the most political courage was the decision not to bomb Syria after the chemical weapons use had been publicized and rather to negotiate them removing chemical weapons from Syria,” Obama said.
The Obama administration drew a so-called “red line” with respect to Syrian dictator Bashar Assad’s regime using chemical weapons on its people, arguing in August 2012 that the use of chemical weapons would provoke a military response from the U.S.
But Obama’s military never intervened after Assad used chemical weapons on his people. The administration instead continued pursuing a diplomatic resolution.
That diplomatic resolution failed. Miserably. Assad attacked again. President Trump took care of it by ordering the attack on the Syrian air base used to wage that chemical attack.

Obama's legacy is melting in the reign -- the reign of President Trump. May Obama live long and watch his place in history drop to the bottom five presidents, a terrible mistake who was elected as an affirmative action president to assuage white guilt.




On November 8, 2016, the American people said, "Trump the Establishment!"

Now read the book that explains how and why the press missed this historic the election.

It is available on Kindle, and in paperback.


And then read the original, "Trump the Press," which chronicled and mocked how the media missed Trump's nomination.

It is available on Kindle, and in paperback

    2. Assad was not the intended audience of that attack. He just provided a convenient venue.

  2. Obama is a putz. I can't recall anything he ever said or did that was consequential, unless you count NOT enforcing our immigration laws. - Elric

  3. When you have no resolve to do what you say, just be silent in the first place. Using a word like courage to describe moral paralysis is not effective rhetoric.

  4. Liberal Hypocrisy (#LiberalHypocrisy) means giving Obama a pass for everything he did...

  5. That "Profile In Courage" award is reminiscent of the scene in "Animal Farm" when the pigs slap bravery medals on themselves after hiding while the other animals attack the humans. I'm surprised ☪ظ☭ma didn't award himself the Courageous Restraint medal before leaving office. It won't be long before he starts appearing in public wearing miniatures of all his "awards" like some Soviet apparatchik.

  9. So not following through on an ultimatum placed on the world stage takes courage? I'd say that when you challenge someone to a fight and they take you up on it, suddenly realizing that your bluff has been called and that the guy is capable of really effing you up and backing down takes an amount of courage to live down the humiliation of the moment. In Obama's case what did he have to lose personally? Nothing. He wasn't going to be beaten up, and his military was up to just about anything he would have asked of it. He was standing down from a fight our boys would have won for him, a fight he threatened to bring on if his line in the sand was crossed. They crossed it and he backed out of a fight he basically had no dog in.
    In other words the event meant nothing to him. He was just doing what he's been doing his whole life. He took the longest drag on the joint labeled "verbal pissing contest" and then handed the butt of a used up joint to the next guy looking at him with a look that says, "What's wrong? Something bothering you?"
