Haunted by Syria?
Weekly Standard, by Elliott Abrams

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 1/6/2014 5:17:09 AM

When the history of the Obama administration is written, there will be a long and damaging chapter on its immense humanitarian and strategic failure in Syria. With three years of Obama yet to come, we have not even seen the full humanitarian disaster play out?—?nor have we yet confronted the dangers that are arising there from the vast jihadist presence. There are hard choices to be made when strategic and humanitarian interests diverge or even conflict. In Syria, they combined: The United States had an obvious interest in seeing the Assad regime replaced, and two and a half years ago

Professional victims, which obama is, are never troubled or haunted by their actions and the consequences of those actions. And our society has given the black community a free pass on their decades long intolerable behavior.

FTA: "...the administration should not now be allowed to escape condemnation for its feckless refusal to make choices."

The president, like many weak leaders, has trouble making choices. And the choices he does make are generally wrong.

He is pretty much a ditherer-in-chief.

You are witnessing a Preisdent who is at his core a communist. This is something entirely new to the American people. We have always had leaders who for the most part, loved this country and had a strong sense of right and wrong, that all changed with Obama. His agenda is clear and it is being played out on the world stage and there will be great suffering because of it. Any leader who can´t or won´t acknowledge the evil violence that is running rampant in Muslim nations, sentences us all to more of the same. The world will pay a high price for Obama´s feckless foreign policy.

Yes, Syria is a major humanitarian disaster. Obama has been on an apparent mission to destabilize the Middle East.

His string of failures (for us not him) include Libya, Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Sudan, Egypt, Lebanon and (most notably) Israel. As a matter of fact, I wouldn´t be surprised if he is tried in absentia in Egypt for his role in the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood.

We also have strained relationships with many of our historical allies and Russia and China are on the rise. Obama has been a one man wrecking crew.

The author is correct. Obama is completely detached from any empathy for people at home or abroad who are harmed by his actions. Three more years seems unthinkable.

What "obvious interest" do we have in seeing Assad replaced? We are not the world´s policeman, and it is not our job to insert ourselves in a civil war which would replace one dictator with a regime that would be even worse. Can´t we learn a lesson from Vietnam and Carter? Let them fight it out on their own. Either way, we don´t stand to gain whoever wins, although Obama with his red line has probably blown any chance of reconciling with Assad if he wins.

Sorry to say this but Obama will not be haunted by anything. Vacations and golfing is all that haunts his low IQ pea sized brain.
The Syrian situation and the entire Middle East explosion will haunt ´us´ and the United States if we survive the Obama communist cabal of misfits destroying us daily.
There are too many vacations in three years for Obama to be haunted about.

This humanitarian and strategic disaster is squarely on Obama’s shoulders, against the advice of (gasp!) Kerry and Clinton. The question is why, which Abrams prudently avoids speculating upon. Is it the amoralism of the committed socialist? Obama’s “I will always stand with my [radical] Muslim brothers” played out in the real world? Simple fecklessness and indecisiveness, a la“I vote ‘present?’” He certainly desires a weaker America on the world stage, for what reason, again, it’s hard to say – Dinesh D’Souza may have something to say about that.

Abrams end with an excerpt from a 2012 speech Obama made at the Holocaust Museum where Obama said, “…we are haunted by the atrocities that we did not stop and the lives we did not save.” Abrams then notes, “As the year ended Obama was golfing in Hawaii; evidence that he was haunted is difficult to come by.” Difficult? I´d say impossible.

I grew up learning never to criticize another´s religion. However, when it comes to modern day Islam I am hard pressed to find that it is a faith based upon love and peace. It seems to promulgate the worst elements within our nature. It does not appear to have undergone any metamorphosis in 1500 years. Thus it is hard for me to advocate the offering of even one American life to defend the rifts within that faith and its burning desire for Jihad against all comers. We have already squandered too many American lives in their defense. Our soldiers are not poorly dressed and poorly educated peasants. Rather they are the cream of the crop of American society, highly trained professionals skilled in battle using some of the most advanced technical battle tools. One of our soldier´s lives is worth 1,000 of theirs. So I say enough is enough. Not one more life will we sacrifice for these ungrateful extremists. Let them purge themselves and slaughter each other to their heart´s content.

Here’s another reason why government should never own a business. In February 2010, the Obama Administration’s Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood told America, without a shred of evidence, that Toyota automobiles were dangerous to drive. LaHood offered the remarks in front of the House Appropriations subcommittee that was investigating reports of unintended-acceleration crashes. “My advice is, if anybody owns one of these vehicles, stop driving it,” he said, sending the company’s stock into a nosedive. Even at the time, LaHood’s comments were reckless at best. Assailing the competition reeks of political opportunism and cronyism. It also illustrates one of the unavoidable

Bush the Elder´s Presidency Is Undervalued
Real Clear Politics, by Ned Lamont    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 4/3/2014 4:52:58 AM     Post Reply
“I’d rather be a really good one-term president than a mediocre two-term president,” Barack Obama said, well before his 2012 re-election. Most historians do not seem to believe that a really good president can be a one-termer. Two-thirds of presidents have not been re-elected (generally due to death or defeat), but in most academic rankings James Polk is the lone single-termer to crack the Top 10. Polk may be a stumper in a game of “Jeopardy!,” but he did double the size of the United States in four short years, and only ill health forced him to step aside after one

High deportation figures are misleading
Los Angeles Times, by Brian Bennett    Original Article

WASHINGTON — Immigration activists have sharply criticized President Obama for a rising volume of deportations, labeling him the "deporter in chief" and staging large protests that have harmed his standing with some Latinos, a key group of voters for Democrats. But the portrait of a steadily increasing number of deportations rests on statistics that conceal almost as much as they disclose. A closer examination shows that immigrants living illegally in most of the continental U.S. are less likely to be deported today than before Obama came to office, according to immigration data. Expulsions of people who are settled and working in the

Republicans are now favored to control both chambers of Congress after the 2014 election. And thanks to favorable maps in both the House and the Senate, they could hold both for plenty of years to come. While much has been written in recent weeks about the GOP´s improving chances to win the Senate in 2014 -- and, to a lesser extent, the Democrats´ chances of winning it back in 2016 -- a look at the Senate map as a whole tells us this: Regardless of what happens in the next few years, Republicans have a distinct advantage in the battle

They’re practically the first words out of one’s mouth the second a Washington reporter hears about a new health reform proposal: "How many people does your plan cover?" The basic premise of the America Next health plan I’m endorsing today is simple: “I believe the problem is not that folks are trying to avoid getting health care. The problem is they can’t afford it.” In short, I agree with Barack Obama. Of course, Barack Obama circa January 2008—when he uttered those words in opposition to a health insurance mandate -- represents a far cry from the Barack Obama who signed ObamaCare into

Darrington, Washington-- The signs touting logger pride are everywhere in this small town tucked away in Washington´s rugged North Cascade Mountains. It´s at the high school, where the school mascot -- the Loggers -- recalls burly men with chainsaws. It´s in the community center´s giant hand-painted wall mural that depicts the mountain peaks and thick swaths of Douglas fir that surround this town of roughly 1,300.

US Secretly Built ´Cuban

WASHINGTON -- The U.S. government masterminded the creation of a "Cuban Twitter" - a communications network designed to undermine the communist government in Cuba, built with secret shell companies and financed through foreign banks, The Associated Press has learned. The project, which lasted more than two years and drew tens of thousands of subscribers, sought to evade Cuba´s stranglehold on the Internet with a primitive social media platform. First, the network would build a Cuban audience, mostly young people; then, the plan was to push them toward dissent. Yet its users were neither aware it was created by a U.S. agency with

President Barack Obama is in a funk. Americans are coming to see the president as ineffectual. That is a dangerous perception. Obama’s job approval rating is at risk of dropping below 40 percent. Democrats may lose their majority in the Senate this fall. It may be difficult for the president to accomplish anything during his last two years. In the March NBC News-Wall Street Journal poll, 42 of registered voters say they would be less likely to vote for a candidate endorsed by Obama. Only 22 percent say they would be more likely to vote for Obama’s candidate. Why is this happening? Republicans

Captain Obama and the

Barack Obama’s legacy legislation, the Affordable Healthcare Act (ACA) – commonly known as “Obamacare” – has clearly become the political equivalent of the wreck of the Hesperus. If there was any doubt remaining about that, it was all but removed by the administration’s recent decision to provide “hardship exemptions” to just about anyone who can work up the energy to apply for one – and its admitted inability to control the security of its own web portal. In case anyone forgets, Longfellow’s “The Wreck of the Hesperus” is the tragic story of a ship that floundered and sunk as the result

The story of the first-generation Ghanian-American student accepted by all eight Ivy league schools is wonderful, but it also stirs up the tension between black Americans and recent African immigrants — especially when you describe him as "not a typical African-American kid."

At one point the piece reads: Being a first-generation American from Ghana also helps him stand out, Cohen says. "He´s

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – President Obama compared the Republican budget plan to a "stinkburger" or "meanwich" during a speech here Wednesday, using a series of zingers in an attempt to strike a contrast with the GOP on economic issues in an election year. In a speech to an enthusiastic crowd of 1,400 at the University of Michigan, Obama repeatedly mocked Republican ideas about how to improve the economy, as he touted his own proposal to raise the minimum wage. Obama, who visited the local Zingerman´s deli before the speech, said that Republican proposals to cut taxes for wealthier Americans and

Big changes could be just down the road for North Carolina drivers. A proposal is in the works that would change the state tax system to charge drivers by the mile, instead of at the gas pump.The proposal would be to charge a half cent per mile for cars, which would generate almost $500 million in annual state revenue. A driver who travelled 15,000 miles in a year would pay about $75. "Basically you pay per the mile.

Sources on the ground in Benghazi during the 2012 terror attack are pushing back hard on former CIA acting director Mike Morell´s testimony on Capitol Hill, where he defended his role in shaping the administration´s narrative and claimed politics were not involved. As part of Morell´s testimony on Wednesday, the former acting and deputy CIA director acknowledged that he overruled the guidance of the top CIA officer in Libya at the time. That official told Morell the attack was not an "escalation of protests," but Morell said he had to weigh that against analysts who concluded the opposite. He ultimately went

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000. Moran believes that this is the wrong way to go, not necessarily talking about himself in particular, but saying there

5 Reasons Why Republicans

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.

The human kindling that makes up the flammable Republican base may soon burst into flames, again. Portions of that excitable cohort are looking — some with fawn-like eyes filled with hurt, others with sparks shooting from eyes narrowed like gun slits — askance at other Republicans urging Jeb Bush to seek the 2016 presidential nomination. A candidacy by Florida’s former governor would be desirable. But if Republicans want to avoid intra-party carnage, they should be very careful about doing what The Post recently reported: “Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft
