Obama: U.S. Has Fallen ´Short
of the Ideal´ in Afghanistan

Weekly Standard, by Daniel Halper

Original Article

Posted By:Evocatus, 1/11/2013 5:20:55 PM

In remarks with Afghan president Hamid Karzai at the White House this afternoon, President Barack Obama said the U.S. has fallen "short of the ideal" in Afghanistan: "So, you know, I think that, have we achieved everything that some might have imagined us achieving in the best of scenarios? Probably not. You know, there´s a human enterprise, and you know, you fall short of the ideal," said Obama. The president went on to say that America has achieved some measure of success in Afghanistan, however. "Did we achieve our central goal? And have we been able, I think,

Comments:
That tall, skinny, dark, slimy Communist in the White House had better damn sure NOT lay comments like that at the feet of the American Military or the American Public. It is a failure and a cowardice and an inability to complete a task that gets laid at HIS feet, if not jammed in his smug face. And, given the chance, a lot of people would jam it in his face.

Please split a headline in the middle. LCom Staff.

No more bragging! Has he stopped saying "Me, "I" or is that only when something turns out good and he wants to take "all" the credit, but if it doesn´t go well, let´s blame US, the "whole" country!

Obama has never learned to be a leader, one who accepts responsibility for his decisions.

Contrast Obama with Bush and you will find the differnce between "who" loves America and one who doesn´t - only himself.

I think maybe Obama should dispose of his mirror. He only sees himself as the center of any situation.

Retirement is not going to be easy for Obama, his wife or his childre, for he only thrives on constant attention!

America is finally witnessing what was promised - total control - a Dictator in the making!

If Afghanistan, by some miracle, had been a success story, we would be hearing I, I, I, all over the place. The only thing here falling short of the ideal is Obama, waaaaay short.

As for the other imbecile, he can´t even teach his soldiers who is the enemy and who is protecting his sorry muslim butt. Our young men and women deserve better in a CIC.

Jesus.... Does this narcissist realize trashing your own nation does not create admiration around the world but condemnation & pity?

Are there that many nations drooling at the opportunity to give up their sovreignty & join the NWO? I think not.

I envision a pot smoke filled room,with nasty, evil, bored billionaires trying to entertain themselves by playing gods. These are the ones Obama is dancing for.

I hate to say it but I feel safer under Putin than Obama... Having trashed all our old allies, Obama has forged our only current alliance with The Muslim Brotherhood. Super.

“Contemplate the mangled bodies of your countrymen, and then say ´what should be the reward of such sacrifices?´ Bid us and our posterity bow the knee, supplicate the friendship and plough, and sow, and reap, to glut the avarice of the men who have let loose on us the dogs of war to riot in our blood and hunt us from the face of the earth? If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!”

When Obama talked about America coming up short in Afghanistan he was really talking about himself. Since the Obama crew has failed to come up with a winning strategy in Afghanistan, the smart thing to do is bug out as quickly as possible, to stay there without any chance of winning is really only putting the lives of American service members on the line for a big nothing.

(my quote)

Our first PC war. A zillion dollars for our soldiers to be killed or wounded and equipment lost. They were nothing more than armed baby sitters for a group that hates US. All while their families waited to see if they would return home alive.

In a real war, somebody wins and somebody loses.

A court employee who retrieved photos and deleted text messages from Trayvon Martin´s cellphone has been placed on administrative leave after an attorney testified that prosecutors didn´t properly turn over the evidence to the defense, an attorney said Wednesday. Former prosecutor Wesley White said he was ethically obligated to reveal that Fourth Judicial Circuit Information Technology Director Ben Kruidbos retrieved the data that weren´t turned over.

During his speech to the CPAC crowd on Thursday, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) facetiously recalled “Presidents” Bob Dole, John McCain and Mitt Romney to make a point about how Republicans need to “stand for principle” in order to win big elections. Today, Sen. McCain fired back at Cruz during an appearance on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports. McCain said he spoke to Cruz about the comments and it was “cordial” but he took specific offense at the remarks concerning Dole. “He can say what he wants to about me and he can say anything he wants to about Mitt,” McCain said,

Via Matt Lewis, here’s Maverick once again demonstrating that “cordial relationship” in politico-speak means “two people who can’t publicly admit to hating each other but obviously do.” And it’s a cheap shot. Cruz’s point yesterday at CPAC was that Dole, McCain, and Romney lost because they weren’t conservative enough. That’s not because they’re gutless — he said specifically that they were “good” and “decent” men — but because they’re not committed, full-throated ideologues, even less so when they’re fighting for purple states in a national election. We can debate whether that’s true but there’s nothing offensive in raising the subject.

NATIONAL HARBOR, Md.—Rand Paul handily won the presidential straw poll at the Conservative Political Action Conference Saturday, one gauge of the Republican base’s mood less than two years before the 2016 primary season kicks off. The Kentucky senator received 31 percent, far ahead of second place Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who received 11 percent. Neurosurgeon Ben Carson finished third with 9 percent, ahead of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who received 8 percent. The announcement came at the end of the group’s annual three-day confab. Organizers said that 2,459 attendees voted on computer kiosks.

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) apologized Thursday to his committee´s ranking Democratic member for cutting off his microphone at the end of a hearing Wednesday, according to a local report. Issa told the San Diego Union-Tribune that he personally apologized to Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.). His apology comes after the House earlier Thursday voted down a motion to censure the chairman for his treatment of Cummings.

What’s been said of confession — that it is good for one’s soul but bad for one’s reputation — can also be true of testifying to Congress, so Lois Lerner has chosen to stay silent. Hers, however, is an eloquent silence. The most intrusive and potentially most punitive federal agency has been politicized; the IRS has become an appendage of Barack Obama’s party. Furthermore, congruent with exhortations from some congressional Democrats, it is intensifying its efforts to suffocate groups critical of progressives, by delaying what once was the swift, routine granting of tax-exempt status. So, the IRS, far from repenting

One of the most seismic changes in American politics over the last decade has been the emergence of a sharp generational split among the electorate. The Democratic Party owes its success in the last two presidential elections almost entirely to overwhelming support among the very young, which has overcome continued conservatism among older voters. The Pew Research Institute has dominated the field of exploring the ideological cleavages among different generations. And its latest survey shows again how the liberalism of the youngest voting cohort, millennials, remains firm, and likely to continue to recast the electorate. A few charts from the survey

Barack Obama´s parents were "married in name only," according to David Maraniss´s 2012 Barack Obama: The Story. But since definitions of an "in name only" marriage vary, such as "a marriage of convenience" or "a sexless marriage," and Maraniss failed to explain his claim, it is unclear what he was implying. Therefore, Obama´s oft-told nativity story must be searched for the full implications of Obama´s parents´ "in name only" marriage. (snip) So when did Ann´s and Obama Sr.´s "whatever happened happened fast" wedding happen? For no apparent reason, confusion abounds among Obama´s biographers over the wedding date:

New York City lefty Mayor Bill de Blasio was elected in a landslide with more than 73 percent of the vote last November.

KINGSTON - More than 150 years after European colonial powers abolished slavery, a coalition of Caribbean nations is considering legal action to seek a formal apology and monetary compensation. Caribbean leaders meeting next week in St. Vincent are expected to study a broad legal outline for the reparations claim prepared by a British law firm. The subject of reparations has simmered in the Caribbean for many years and opinions are divided. Some see reparations as delayed justice, while others see it as an empty claim and a distraction from modern social problems in Caribbean societies. Slavery ended throughout the Caribbean

Kuala Lumpur - A Malaysia Airlines flight carrying 227 passengers and 12 crew crashed in the South China Sea on Saturday, Vietnamese state media said, quoting a senior naval official. The Boeing 777-200ER flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing had been missing for hours when Vietnam´s Tuoi Tre news quoted Admiral Ngo Van Phat as saying he had asked boats from an island off south Vietnam to rush to the crash site. If the report is confirmed, it would mark the U.S.-built airliner´s deadliest crash since entering service 19 years ago. Malaysia Airlines had yet to confirm that the aircraft had crashed. It said earlier in the day that no distress signal
