President Obama has been judged to be ´chronically incapable´ of conducting a coherent military strategy and ´has no sense of what he wants to do in the world´, according to Oxford University professor, Sir Hew Strachan - one of the UK´s most respected and senior military advisers. The damning verdict from a governmental insider of the United States´ closest military ally comes days after the president was heavily criticized by his own former Defense Secretary Robert Gates who said that Obama was indecisive and lacked any passion for his nation´s armed forces. Claiming that America and Britain had committed total

How many reliable sources will it take to finally convince the American electorate that we made a serious mistake in electing such a man to the presidency? Or is it simply that many are too ashamed to admit it? Wake up America, and man up. Only we can fix this. And it will not be easy.

In one of the photo captions in the article, there is the perfect word when it comes to describing Obama´s foreign policy: dithering.

What worse characterization could a president want associated to their administration by history than that?

Why the surprise? Certainly Sir Hew was not expecting another Alexander The Great, Julius Caesar or Napoleon Bonaparte from a young man who previously had never held a regular job, managed anything, to include a corner candy store, or served a day in military uniform.

Did anyone notice how dark Obama´s skin tone is in this article? Is the American press lightening him in photos???

The man did not come into office to create a consistent, strong, effective security and foreign policy which will enhance and preserve American interests as well as the safety and security of the American people. Having said that we should be thankful that his innate incompetence, average intelligence and pedestrian abilities make him a failure even at destruction. Just imagine what havoc he would have wreaked with an ounce of competence.

BO believes that American power and influence in the world are a BAD thing. He has deliberately withdrawn from action and undermined our standing and credibility to minimize our impact. When bad things happen that he simply cannot ignore, he talks about it but does nothing. This is his policy being carried out.

On the other hand, BO is the embodiment of incompetence and inaction. He is "present" in his presidency. He has probably found out through experience that when he stands up and takes action it exposes him to criticism. So he has learned to artfully talk but do nothing. Of course the reason he is criticized is that he is incompetent but he has been affirmative actioned through his life and considers himself brilliant.

He is a dangerous, delusional, narcissistic fool driven by a failed Statist ideology to the exclusion of all else.

Not to beat a dead horse but Obama´s focus is on this country. He is determined to destroy us by fundamentally changing who we are. Anything outside these shores is secondary because he knows destroying us will then diminish any influence we have abroad which is a big part of his philosophy. He is focused on his goal...fundamental transformation of this country.

Unbelievably he was promoted again by communist rats and elected again because he´s a black who doesn´t always speak ebonics.

He doesn´t seem to be incapable at all. From looking at his past and what he believes and what those he surrounds himself with believe he is exactly on target.

* Weaken the US to the point of completely incapable of protecting it´s allies or itself seems to be the target.
* Destroy all small businesses so there will only be big businesses that answer to government. Definitely moving in that direction.
* Destroy Israel. Exterminate all the Jews. He´s working with Iran to accomplish that. Plus all his efforts to turn all of the middle east over to radical Moslem organizations.

He´s pretty much set the stage for all of that.

This is a devastating interview by the esteemed
military historian.
Obama is basically described as a blithering and dithering idiot who has
destabilized the MidEast and lost Iraq and soon, Afghanistan.
Iraq is now an Al Queda haven and Syria is about to become a little Iran.
The fact that Barry didn´t meet with his military advisors for months at a time , during war time ,
should be impeachable.
Every American regardless of political affiliation should be alarmed and outraged that such
an incompetent resides in the White House.
Obama sends Jay- Z and Beyonce to the Situation Room , Jarrett and Michelle to the Oval Office

Obama is a liberal Democrat, in the modern era since the Second World War can you name one war that has been won by an liberal Democrat administration?

Clearly the liberal Democrat mantra when it comes to war is to be tolerant of the enemy and not to do what is necessary to defeat them.

Deep in the flat and featureless landscape of eastern Ukraine, it is all too ­possible that the outline of World War III is taking shape. Whipped up by the Kremlin ­propaganda machine and led by Russian ­military intelligence, armed men are erecting road blocks, storming police stations and ripping down the country’s flag. They are demolishing not just their own country — bankrupt, ill-run and beleaguered — but also the post-war order that has kept most of Europe and us, here in Britain, safe and free for decades. Vladimir Putin is striking at the heart of the West.

According to figures compiled by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, Moscow spent 4.1 percent of its GDP on defence in 2013, an increase of 0.6 percent over the past 10 years. By contrast, the United States spent 3.8 percent of GDP on defence and Britain spent just 2.3 percent. The only neighbouring country that spends more is Azerbaijan, with 4.7 percent.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Friday stood by his statement regarding embattled Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, saying on KSNV’s What’s Your Point?, “If anyone thinks by any figment of their imagination that what happened up there last week was just people rallying to somebody that was oppressed, 600 people came in armed. They had practiced. They had maneuvered.” Reid continued, “They knew what they were doing. They set up snipers in strategic locations with sniper rifles. They had assault weapons. They had automatic weapons. And they boasted about the fact that they put women and children, in fact one
