Fox’s Ed Henry: Obama’s ‘No Strategy’
Remark a ‘Disaster’ for WH

Mediaite, by Josh Feldman

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 8/28/2014 9:49:00 PM

Megyn Kelly was incredibly bewildered Thursday night at President Obama‘s comment about having no concrete Syria strategy yet. Ed Henry was very blunt in telling Kelly that this is an unqualified “disaster” for the White House. Henry admitted he was “stunned” that none of his colleagues in the briefing room followed up on that remark of the president’s, especially considering how quickly after the presser the White House jumped right into “damage control mode.” And whereas last night Henry blew Kelly’s mind by telling her Obama would be attending one fundraiser on Friday, he told her tonight that actually, it’s going to

Comments:
I truly don´t even know why Obama went out there. The WH is in total damage control, once again cleaning up Obama´s disaster. For Ed Henry to be stunned none of his colleagues followed up on that question stuns me. Hasn´t he figured them out yet??

My son said that, when Obie said "we have no strategy", Ed Henry should have said "Why?"

It doesn´t matter one bit.

Obama doesn´t care and the imbeciles who voted for him will still worship him.

Liberalism is truly a sickness.

Oh please, it is only a disaster if the mainstream media decide the lo-fo´s need to think it is a disaster until then it is the most daring strategy since General MacArthur´s island hopping campaign in the Pacific.

Megyn, there is no reason to be bewildered! The Decline is on purpose - it has always been on purpose and will continue to be on purpose as long as Choom is in office. And if another Demo-idiot takes his place in 2016, the Decline will continue to be on purpose for another 4 years. All the evidence since 2008 says: no bewilderment. Just accept that these are bad people doing bad things on purpose, and all of it suddenly makes perfect sense.

Obama is a disgrace. If anyone was ever unfit for office it is Barack Hussein Obama. The biggest deficit in his long list of deficiencies is that he has no love for this country. What you do not love, you will not protect. He has no affinity for the American experience. He is as much of an odd duck here as Vladimir Putin would be if he was trying to make himself a believable American. Obama is not one of us and it has absolutely nothing to do with his race. It has everything to do with his political philosophy. No strategy is Obama´s strategy. He sees no urgency to protect and defend the country he hates. His passion as we have seen these past few weeks comes from racial unrest. He is happiest when he is stirring that pot. His big picture is a racially divided violent country and that is what captures his attention. Weakening our military at a time when the world is in chaos is all the proof you need that this country´s security is not even on Obama´s radar. He is definitely standing by, doing nothing and letting the unthinkable play out.

We need to develop a rating system for Obama disasters since they are an everyday occurrence - kind of like hurricane´s and tornados. I don´t have time to follow all of them so I would like to focus mainly on the cat 4´s and 5´s.

For a Republican President, especially one seeking re-election or even a Republican candidate it would not just be a disaster but a fatal one. But the reasons Zippy was elected and re-elected make this quite irrelevant.
This very irrelevance goes to the heart of other problems the nation is facing right now in all directions. Who have we elected, for what purpose and what is it doing to us as a country?
The MSM will do its best to prevent these questions from being asked and becoming a part of the public discourse.
We need another great communicator or the LoFos, parasites ans Kool Aiders will continue to snooze or pretend to sleep.

Why did he go out there?

Hasn´t anyone noticed that he is addicted to "going out there"? My husband and I have lunch together everyday and turn on the TV, and inevitably, there is Zippy!

He is a man in love with the sound of his own voice.

These daily performances (in lieu of really leading the country) are Narcissism in full bloom.

I think they call that ´The Peter Principle´ and it applies to this Administration from top to bottom.

Liberals elected Obama because he was a Black community organizer without portfolio (no past or recorded history).

He has never risen above that level.

I´m glad I straightened that out.

This double talk the administration does, to always allow them to back track and change the meaning of statements they have made is amazing. It is like a DC version of Simon Says. All they have to do is be vague and leave out nouns, say the sentence was transposed in translation/last part left off.
This is what happens when the nation is run by a bunch of attorneys.

Just look at the Rose Garden incident: Obama made a reference to terrorism w/out directly tying it to Benghazi. Then he asks Candy Crowley for a phone a friend assist in the debate and gets her to say he said Benghazi was terrorism, in the Rose Garden, which he did not. These ISIS statement corrections are much the same. They are dissecting semantics to their false perspective.

Our only hope is removing Obama before more damage is done, and once Democrats realize that they, too, will suffer an attack by Muslims on our soil, it will be up to them to remove or neutralize him, politically.

We conservatives know Obama is dangerous to the health and survival of a free America. Democrats need to learn that fast. Time is short.

The bottom line here is we are without a president, as he is further and further disconnected from all responsibility of his office. We are weakened in our defense and security as well. This seems like a good time to turn around and cry out to the God we left behind so many years ago and cry out for deliverance from this unholy mess we are in.

The bad part is that both Ed and Megyn softened the criticism by conceeding that "all presidents engage in fundraising" without following up with a comparison of the number of Obama´s fundraisers compared with his predecessor´s, and whether other presidents went off fundraising during such times of crisis.

A law must be passed and put into effect that prohibits politicians from using taxpayer property to engage in fundraising, including AF1. Any ´official´ trip using any form of taxpayer-funded conveyance should not be allowed to include attendance at any fundraiser gatherings. That should make them stay at work and do the job they are paid to do.

First time in 6 years ØDumbø said something correct and people are upset? It refreshing to hear him finally admit he has no strategy, clue, or the vaguest idea of how to solve any of the problems facing America and the world. Perhaps his caddy will give him some hints on how to deal with ISIS. Audit their IRS returns. Eavesdrop on their cell phones. It´s works this way you demented half wit: Find who the head ISIS is and kill him. Then kill the replacement. And then kill his replacement. When you are left with a camel with half a hump stop and go back to doing the only thing you know how to do. Golf.

This is a quote from one of Opie´s speeches at a fundraiser last night.
"If you watch the nightly news, it feels like the world is falling apart," Obama said, referring to crises from the Middle East to Europe. "The good news is that American leadership has never been more necessary." Ya, just ask the Pentagon!
What does this foolish President mean????? Opie you said we have "no strategy", why are you bragging to those foolish lapdogs about something that you have no clue how to fix. Opie the world is falling apart because of your foreign policies so don´t start blaming the media.

Just wait until the next mass-death attack by jihadist, barbarian savages on the USA.

Urinalists will fret about how the mass-death attack will adversely affect the prospects for democrats in November. And wring their little limp-wristed hands about how the thousands of deaths will affect our intrepid, tireless, brilliant president.

Bill Ayers, according to the right, is Barack Obama’s terrorist trainer and ghostwriter. Upon further inspection, Ayers is nothing quite as dramatic or fearsome. While more famous for his anti-war activities as a founder of the Weather Underground in the 1960s and ‘70s, he is now a committed educator. Retired from his education professorship at the University of Illinois in Chicago, Ayers continues to give lectures to teachers in training, speak at education conferences and agitate against America’s two-tiered educational system – one for rich, one for poor – on behalf of low-income parents, students and instructors.

The Obama administration is ramping up its response to West Africa´s Ebola crisis, preparing to assign 3,000 U.S. military personnel to the afflicted region to supply medical and logistical support to overwhelmed local health care systems and to boost the number of beds needed to isolate and treat victims of the epidemic. President Barack Obama planned to announce the stepped up effort Tuesday during a visit to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta amid alarm that the outbreak could spread and that the deadly virus could mutate into a more easily transmitted disease.

White House press secretary Josh Earnest Friday said Obama would travel to Atlanta Tuesday for a briefing from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on both Ebola and a respiratory virus in the Midwest. The president on Wednesday will conduct a meeting with U.S. Central Command in Tampa, Fla., to review the administration’s efforts to eliminate the Islamic State.

In early June 1964, a group of Republican governors sought to wrestle control of their party from Barry Goldwater, the Arizona conservative who was about to lead the GOP to one of the most crushing defeats in its history. The governors saw a disaster in the making, and sought a moderate candidate who could capture the imaginations of grassroots Republicans—but also beat President Lyndon Johnson in the general election. Led by Ohio’s James Rhodes—the Republican Governors Association was meeting in Cleveland, and Rhodes was a legendary vote counter—the group included Pennsylvania’s William Scranton and later New York’s Nelson Rockefeller.

Quoting two U.S. military officials, the Washington Post reported on Wednesday that Army Gen. Lloyd Austin, commander of U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM), said “that his best military advice was to send a modest contingent of American troops, principally Special Operations forces, to advise and assist Iraqi army units in fighting the militants.” Austin’s recommendation was taken to the White House by the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen.

MANCHESTER, New Hampshire — In front of a boisterous pub crowd of young voters here, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) ripped into President Obama over executive overreach and even vowed to repeal “all previous executive orders” in one of his first acts as president, should he run. Paul’s comments came to the New Hampshire chapter of Generation Opportunity, a national grassroots conservative group with a libertarian appeal with thousands of young liberty-minded activists nationwide engaged through it. Paul focused much of his remarks on executive overreach by President Barack Obama, saving some of his most interesting points for a question-and-answer session

First Lady Michelle Obama proudly defended her husband’s record at a Washington, D.C. fundraiser, reminding the attendants how far the country had come since the Obamas entered the White House. “Just think about how different our country looks to children growing up today,” she said. “Think about how our kids take for granted that a black person or a woman can be President of the United States.” She also praised President Obama for changing history on gay marriage and the Supreme Court. “They take it for granted that for the first time in history, there are three brilliant women serving

President Barack Obama insisted on Wednesday that he would not send ground troops into Iraqi combat zones to fight the ISIS terrorist army, directly contradicting his top general who said a day earlier that the president asked him for boots-on-the-ground recommendations ´on a case-by-case basis.´ (Snip)´As your commander-in-chief,´ Obama insisted, ´I will not commit you and the rest of our armed forces to fighting another ground war in Iraq.´ On Tuesday, however, Joint Chiefs chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey told lawmakers that circumstances on the ground could drive him to push for American combat troops to be embedded with Iraqi army

First Lady Michelle Obama visited sick children at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee, where she complained about living at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and being married to the president of the United States. She made the comments in response to being asked about her "favorite part about being in the White House." "About being in the -- about being First Lady is being able to do stuff like this, really. And it is so special for me to get to meet kids like you guys," Michelle Obama started. "Because sometimes living in the White House and being married to the

Flashes of disagreement over how to fight the Islamic State are mounting between President Obama and U.S. military leaders, the latest sign of strain in what often has been an awkward and uneasy relationship. Even as the administration has received congressional backing for its strategy, with the Senate voting Thursday to approve a plan to arm and train Syrian rebels, a series of military leaders have criticized the president’s approach against the Islamic State militant group. Retired Marine Gen. James Mattis, who served under Obama until last year, became the latest high-profile skeptic on Thursday, telling the House Intelligence Committee

Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, one of the masterminds behind Obamacare, has now explained that he wishes to die at age 75. In an article in The Atlantic, Emanuel writes, “Seventy-five. That’s how long I want to live: 75 years.” He explains that his daughters disagree; so do his brothers and his friends. But, he says, “I am sure of my position…here is a simple truth that many of us seem to resist: living too long is also a loss. It renders many of us, if not disabled, then faltering and declining, a state that may not be worse than death but

Devastating. That´s really the only way to describe Politico´s piece on DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. (I hereby nominate her for Worst Week in Washington.) (Editor´s note: Three words -- Joseph. Robinette. Biden.) Based on interviews with DNC staffers -- both former and current -- the piece described Wasserman Schultz as something of a modern-day Tracy Flick: over-eager, disloyal and not shy about promoting her ambitions. It would be fair to say that she sounds like, well, a lot like other politicians. And this would be accurate. But the wholesale bashing of Wasserman Schultz at every level of the party -- White House,

Congress is living in an "evidence-free zone" as it debates issues of equal pay and family-friendly work policies, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Thursday. "Unfortunately, reality is not always the context in which these decisions are made. The Congress increasingly -- despite the best efforts of my friends and others -- is living in an evidence-free zone," she said during a roundtable discussion at the Center for American Progress focused on women´s issues. "What the reality is, in the lives of Americans is so far from the minds of too many who don´t place the highest priority" on

The anti-war president has finally found a way to wag the dog without upsetting his liberal base and war-weary electorate. Despite the beheading of two Americans, establishment of an Islamic caliphate, direct threats to the U.S. homeland, and the destabilization of the entire Middle East, Obama refuses to acknowledge that we are at war with barbaric Islamic jihadists. And he refuses to authorize the requisite boots on the ground. However, Obama just discovered his pre-midterm election method of wagging the dog -- distracting from his incompetent and dangerous response (or lack thereof) to the real threats to America’s national security

The U.S Senate passed a bill Thursday evening that will give President Barack Obama the authority to arm moderate Syrian rebels, which is a key part of his plan to fight the jihadist group Islamic State (also known as ISIS and ISIL). Shortly after the Senate passed the bill, which was passed by the House on Wednesday, Obama spoke from the White House. "I´m pleased that Congress, a majority of Democrats and a majority of Republicans in both the House and Senate, have now voted to support a key element of our strategy," Obama said.

On Thursday In a session with the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, Secretary of State John Kerry was asked by Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) whether America was at war in Iraq and Syria. (Video) Kerry responded: “If you’re more comfortable calling it a war against this enemy of Islam then please do so. We’re happy to call it that.” So its official: America is at war with the enemy of Islam. However, strange bedfellows arise if the Obama administration so chooses to uphold Kerry’s claim that we are at war with the enemy(s) of Islam. The following displays that Secretary

For crying out loud, will someone “pleeeeease” take a stand for Conservatism? Someone forwarded this article to me, “Why Are Republicans Suddenly Leaning Left?” The article cites numerous examples of the GOP obviously believing it must embrace at least lukewarm Liberalism while backing away from Conservatism to win elections.The article mentioned that Mitt Romney avoided saying “Republican” in an ad supporting Scott Brown’s Senate run. Romney said in the ad referring to Brown, “will buck his own party to do what’s right for New Hampshire.” Romney’s statement implies that Conservatism can be mean, but rest assured that Brown will push

A man who’s a better speechwriter than his speechwriters, a better political director than his political directors, and who knows more about policy than his policy advisors must surely also be a better general than his generals, no? The U.S. military campaign against Islamist militants in Syria is being designed to allow President Barack Obama to exert a high degree of personal control, going so far as to require that the military obtain presidential signoff for strikes in Syrian territory, officials said. The requirements for strikes in Syria against the extremist group Islamic State will be far more stringent than those targeting
