Obama´s 2012 Debate Boast: I Didn´t
Want to Leave Any Troops in Iraq

Weekly Standard, by John McCormack

Original Article

Posted By:mitzi, 8/10/2014 10:10:23 PM

Before leaving for vacation on Saturday, President Obama spoke briefly about the genocidal Islamist terrorists who are taking over large swaths of Iraq. When one reporter asked the president if he regretted not leaving any U.S. troops in Iraq, Obama replied that that wasn´t even an option: (snip) When President Obama announced in October of 2011 that no U.S. troops would be left in Iraq, he said he was fulfilling a campaign promise. That´s certainly at odds with how he now portrays the decision to withdraw all U.S. forces from Iraq.

The truth is whatever Obama says it is. Today. Anyone mentioning earlier Obama statements is a racist.

There you have it. Campaign promises are more important than security. I guess that´s why Barry imports all these muslim hordes into the country giving us 27+ jihadist training camps.

If the media really want to provide cover for Obama´s stupidity they need to start by blocking out any comments he makes on any subject.

Barack Obama contradicts himself so often because there is no core to his being. He spouts words instead of articulating his goals or beliefs. We never know what the mission is because he doesn´t know and cannot tell us.

What war has the US ever won where an occupation force not left behind? Since when is it up for debate? we didn´t lose lives for nothing! Since Obama is such an amateur, he probably does not even know this and his closest military adviser, Val Jarrett sure would not know. As volatile as Mideast is, it still did not dawn on him. He was just too anxious to destroy/forget anything with Bush fingerprints on it-a debillitating mindset. Look what he did with the Bush terrorist alert, color-coded system-shredded it.

´ got to love Obama´s recent statement that he could not arm the Iraqis because they are just a bunch of former doctors, farmers, pharmacists. That sounds like something Jarrett would tell him to say, lol.

Obama´s mindset is to get America out of every conflict everywhere, every time. He´s a One World flower child and even said himself that there should be "no victors, no vanquished."

That is fantasy thinking. In a world so dangerous, those who won´t fight for what is right will become victims of those who fight for what is wrong.

Unfortunately for Obama, the IS is not going away. No matter how he tries to frame this i.e. it´s a Civil War that he doesn´t want to meddle in. It´s an invasion that a residual force would have prevented. IMO, the IS would have been stopped at the Syrian border.

Since the Democrats always withdraw the occupation force that Republicans leave behind, that leaves the situation where no long term plan can ever be implemented by Republicans. So the only choice is to inflict long term punishment that doesn´t require an occupation force. Next time we have to go into a country we must use complete utter devastation. Millions of citizens will be left homeless and starving but the Democrats don´t understand that that is what an occupation force avoids. Every member of their government has to be killed. The horror of war has to be so bad that no one else will threaten. Of course the Democrats will eventually regain power and be all apologetic and go in to rebuild their country. But Republicans must leave nothing for them to rebuild. Rebuilding will have to be something that takes decades or else the punishment won´t work. Otherwise we will have many instances of the mouse that roared.

One of Obama´s greatest talents is his ability to speak with an ´air of authority´ on things about which he has no clue! Such an arrogant dope when it comes to doing the right or prudent thing. However, he´s quite good at trampling on America´s heritage, values, history, optimism, security, economy and allies - and knows exactly what he´s doing. His goals and aspirations for America are right on target, unfortunately.

Stay tuned for the immediate close of Gitmo, the transformation of the most wicked, secretive administration ever into the most transparent, miraculously healed (not agitated) race relations, an end to angry partisanship, a chicken in every pot, affordable healthcare for all Americans, a booming economy based on new, clean energy, the demise of underperforming federal programs (ahem), a decline in the deficit, and peace at home and abroad. I can hardly wait for all these promises to materialize, since he is now a man of his word!

It´s only difficult to follow his thinking if you assume that he´s sincere but simply inept. If you realize that he never really meant anything he said and was only doing it for purposeful, situational deceit in order to fool people of his actual future intent, then it all makes perfect sense.

Nothing legal comes to mind, #13, but the imagination sure has lots of ideas.

I, I, I, I, it´s all about him. It doesn´t matter a bit that tens of thousands of Iraqis and Christians were slaughtered as long as obama made some points with his peacenik pals. Adolph Hitler would have been sitting on a throne for 50+ years if Harry Truman and Winston Churchill had that way of thinking.

Well Mr. President I think we are worlds apart on the necessity to do things we´d just as soon not do. You have gone through life being afforded the luxury of getting your way never having to own the real world consequences of getting what you want. You have a scary twisted view of others, the positions they take and decisions they make because you don´t get that they, unlike you, consider all aspects and consequences. I don´t want my son or daughters or my neighbor´s sons and daughters left in some earthly armpit. But I also don´t want to have to refight all of out past conflicts and wars either, and I can´t make myself feel good for not stepping up to the harsh realities by blaming and demonizing those to are wise enough to make difficult serious tradeoff decisions.

#13 asks "Boehner has already promised no impeachment. Is there no other mechanism to remove an unstable president?"

Yes, there is the 25th Amendment, Section 4:
"Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President."

obama´s words are awaited by his idealogues as in the David Wilcox Song

Artist: David Wilcox

By your (obama´s) words alone...

"You blaze this sacred trail I find"

"When I´m afraid of dying
Ashamed of never doing what I´m here for
I´m afraid of being afraid
And wasting precious time

I´m afraid of growing so cold
And closing off the love inside me
I´m afraid of just getting old
And never getting wise

Here tonight
A storm of another kind
Where´s the light I have known
I have known
The lightening strikes
Born of another time
Across these years You have shown
By Your words alone
By Your words alone
By Your words alone

I don´t even know how it starts
Too much fretting and forgetting
But something switches off in my heart
And leaves me to my mind

So I´m reaching for your words in the dark
To bring you here to shine your Wisdom
And all it takes is one sudden spark
To leave this fear behind me

Here tonight
A storm of another kind
Where´s the light I have known
I have known
The lightening strikes
Born of another time
Across these years You have shown
By Your words alone
By Your words alone
By Your words alone

You blaze this sacred trail I find

Here tonight
A storm of another kind
Where´s the light I have known
I have known
The lightening strikes
Born of another time
Across these years you have shown
By your words alone"

In October 2014, the first patient on American soil infected with the Ebola virus sits in isolation in a Texas hospital, prompting calls for travel restrictions between the United States and Ebola-stricken countries. Meanwhile, four years ago, the administration of President Barack Obama moved with virtually no fanfare to abandon a comprehensive set of regulations which the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) had called essential to preventing international travelers from spreading deadly diseases inside the United States. The CDC had proposed the regulations in 2005 under the administration of George W. Bush, reported USA Today in 2010. The

WHEAT RIDGE, Colo. - At least two Colorado adults have died from complications from what may be enterovirus-68, the same strain that has afflicted hundreds, mostly children, across the country. Dr. Phil Emrie, a critical care pulmonologist at Lutheran Medical Center in Wheat Ridge, says he treated adult patients who suffered from conditions similar to the virus. “We don’t know for sure that it’s the enterovirus-68, but we do know that it’s consistent with the illness that they’re seeing in children,” Emrie said. That specific virus has been diagnosed primarily in children. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has

AUSTIN -- A divided federal appeals court ruled Thursday evening to allow Texas´s tough new abortion regulations to take effect, a decision that is expected to force all but seven clinics in the state to close. The ruling from a three-judge panel of the 5th Circuit of the U.S. Court of Appeals at least temporarily reversed a decision by a local judge who struck down two provisions of the law as unconstitutional in August. The order signed by Judges Jennifer Walker Elrod and Jerry E. Smith found that Texas officials were likely to ultimately win their appeal in defense of

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false.

It’s the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” A New York appeals court next week will consider whether chimps should have the same rights as human beings. The extraordinary proceeding is the result of a lengthy battle by animal-rights activists who argue that animals with human qualities — including chimps — are entitled to human protections, including freedom from captivity. Steven Wise, part of the Nonhuman Rights Project, which is leading the effort, will have to convince a panel of Albany appellate judges that a chimp name Tommy is a “legal person” to get him moved from a cage

What on earth is an ohbee-guynee? Apparently it is a weird Obamaspeak pronunciation of OB/GYN (pronounced oh-bee-gee-why-en). For the president’s benefit, let me specify that means a doctor who delivers babies and takes care of the lady parts. When President Obama announced the departure of Eric Holder from his position as attorney general, he also mentioned his “good friend,” the AG’s wife, Dr. Sharon Malone, and he called her an “ohbee-guynee.” (snip) it almost seems as though someone raised in a fantasized USSR training camp for deep cover agents was inserted into the identity of Barack Obama and loosed upon

It is the stuff that nightmares are made of, and day by day it is getting worse. The Ebola epidemic, says Dr Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), is now “the greatest peacetime challenge” since the Second World War. Yet her own organisation’s tardiness, partly caused by cuts, together with reductions in--and misuse of--funds elsewhere, are largely responsible for Ebola spiralling out of control. [Snip] It’s just the beginning. At present the numbers of people infected are thought to be doubling in under 30 days--and the blue-chip US Center for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that, if Ebola

In her remarks, Obama pushed the President´s newest campaign line that he has saved the economy based on

ATLANTA — Texas, America’s second-most populous state behind California, saw 13 of its last abortion clinics turn away women on Friday, after a federal appeals court upheld a law that practically guarantees that only a handful of clinics will remain open in the state. The strictest-of-its-kind Texas law requires abortion providers to build hospital-grade facilities and obtain sometimes impossible-to-get hospital admitting privileges. After signed into law last year by Gov. Rick Perry (R), the law forced most of the 41 clinics operating to close.
