Orlando devastated Obama

The last four years of Obama are growing worse because he refuses to see the Islamic State as a threat.

You wonder how many have to die before he sees this. Instead of rallying Americans to defeat the enemy, he lectures America not to be unkind.

From President Obama:
“We’ve gone through moments in our history before when we acted out of fear and we came to regret it. We’ve seen our government mistreat our fellow citizens, and it has been a shameful part of our history. This is a country founded on basic freedoms, including freedom of religion. We don’t have religious tests here. Our founders, our Constitution, our Bill of Rights are clear about that. And if we ever abandon those values, we would not only make it easier to radicalize people here and around the world, but we would have betrayed the very things we are trying to protect: the pluralism, and the openness, our rule of law, our civil liberties, the very things that make this country great. The very things that make us exceptional.”
That is a weird call for civil liberties from the man who wants to ban gun ownership to people on the secret no-fly list without a conviction or any judicial oversight or right to appeal.

Obama seems to be losing his grip in the final months of his presidency. His legacy is a stagnant economy propped up by $10 trillion in new national debt and about $2 trillion in Quantitative Easements, which artificially inflated stock prices.

His health care plan is crap. He knows it. Won't admit it.

Politically, Democrats paid dearly for this figurehead. While it is true that people are afraid to speak out against Obama's incompetence and policies for fear of being branded racist, people vote. Republicans have not owned as many statehouses, and have not done as well in Congress, since Hoover was president as Obama took a filibuster-proof Senate and turned it into Republicanville.

The JV squad is kicking his ass in the Middle East, San Bernardino, and now Orlando.

Orlando may give Republicans the gay vote. Obama's tepid support of gay marriage after the Supreme Court cleared it and the revocation of Don't Ask, Don't Tell do not shield him for blame for the murder of 49 gay people and the wounding of 50 more. His refusal to take Islamic terrorism serious is costing him in his final year any hope of being known as more than the first black president.

Eight years as president and his only positive accomplishment will be that he was black?

Orlando devastated Obama.

Bernie Goldberg observed:
President Barack Obama, still can’t bring himself to utter the words, “radical Islamic terrorism.”
In his statement Sunday afternoon, the president, who couldn’t get those words out, managed yet again to convey his unhappiness with our current gun laws. “To actively do nothing is a decision as well,” he said.
This prompted an op-ed that stuck it to Mr. Obama’s seeming inability to find fault — in himself.  “Yes, to have actively done nothing in Syria over more than five years of war — so allowing part of the country to become an ISIS stronghold, contributing to a massive refugee crisis in Europe, acquiescing to slaughter and displacement on a devastating scale, undermining America’s word in the world, and granting open season for President Vladimir Putin to strut his stuff — amounts to the greatest foreign policy failure of the Obama administration.  It has made the world far more dangerous.”
If a conservative at the Wall Street Journal had written this, we’d be saying, “What else is new?” But it came not from the Right, but from the reliably liberal Roger Cohen, the New York Times columnist.

When FDR said the only thing we have to fear is fear itself, he referred to the economy, not the rise of Hitler. That, FDR took serious.


  1. Billy Connolly has a gag where he talks about the culinary delights of "Brown Gravy, which has no qualities other than that it's brown".

  2. The undeniable theme-song for Obama, Clinton, and all the rest of the anti-Trump denialists :

  3. Soetero is the worst president in American history. Even my liberal brothers and friends have gone silent after Orlando. They know now what I've known from jump...the guy sucks. Clint Eastwood has been proven right again. And more and more people are waking up to the hopeful reality of a Trump presidency. We got this. We SO got this.

  4. Does freedom of religion allow a religion that is against everything America stands for? Islam is incompatible with America. It is a political ideology masquerading as a religion.

    1. That is a the key. Islam is not just a religion, it is the full package. Islam regulates religion, domestic life, government, the marketplace, civic life, education, criminal justice, civil justice - everything. In this Islam is like ancient Judaism and Marxism where everything that one would do is covered by some precept of the ideology.

      How you separate the worship from the rest of Islam is going to be the difficult part, and I hope there is someone clever enough to do so.

    2. Islam is a totalitarian political party disguised as a religion.

  5. When Joe Wilson yelled, "You lie", Barry was undone.

    when, after just a few weeks in office, Barry showed up at a DC school with the excuse, "They let us out early", he was undone.

    Now we're just talking how many more nails will go into the coffin of his legacy.

  6. "This is a country founded on basic freedoms, including freedom of religion."

    Unless you are a baker or an order of Catholic nuns. Then again, you need to parse his statement carefully. He is careful to refer to the founding principles, not the ones that mark his "transformative" presidency. The two sets of principles don't line up very well if you ask me.

  7. --Hillary Clinton’s State Dept. shut down an investigation into the mosque Orlando killer Omar Mir Siddique Mateen attended because it “unfairly singled out Muslims.”
    The Fort Pierce Islamic Center, where Mateen worshipped several times a week, was under investigation by both the FBI and DHS as early as 2011 for ties to a worldwide Islamic movement known as Tablighi Jamaal which was linked to several terrorist organizations.
    But the investigation was shut down under pressure from the Clinton-ran State Dept. and DHS’s Civil Rights and Civil Liberties Office out of fear of offending Muslims, according to recently retired DHS agent Philip Haney.--
