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

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.

Obama is an Islamist. By birth, by word and by deed! He is a puppet with a putter. He is a fool, a fraud, feckless and a fop. He dances at the end of strings pulled by Islamists and anti-Americans.

If Obama´s allegiance to Islam and allowing himself to be used to reduce our Republic to Third World status isn´t obvious to you, then you are one of them!

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.

The House made a bipartisan demand Friday that Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson conduct a comprehensive review of the Secret Service and not just a probe of how they reacted to last month’s fence jumper. House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., and the panel’s top Democrat, Elijah Cummings, D-Md., said in the letter to Johnson that a September hearing on the agency exposed “a series of dangerous security breaches,” that point to serious flaws. Issa and Cummings also called on Johnson to make public a currently classified internal report on the incident as well as

Bret Baier asked Johnson: Did you ask Secret Service Director Julia Pierson to resign? “Director Pierson offered her resignation, and I accepted it,” he told Baier.

How to assess Eric Holder’s record and legacy as attorney general?

Lest Republicans forget, Obama was elected and reelected to the presidency by large margins in 2008 and 2012. First, congressional accusations against Holder on the controversial “Fast and Furious” “gun walking” program have been proven factually wrong.

Former Housing and Urban Development loan specialist Brian Thompson pleaded guilty Thursday to stealing $843,000 of taxpayer money in a wire fraud scheme. Thompson was responsible for selling properties acquired by the government after borrowers defaulted on their HUD-guaranteed mortgages. Specialists like Thompson were tasked with ensuring the sale of these properties at the best possible price to reimburse the government for taxpayer funds made to mortgage lenders for insured loans. Instead, he funneled portions of the proceeds into bank accounts he controlled, netting himself $843,000 in the process.

The Department of Homeland Security flew drones equipped with video cameras over the United States--away from border and coastal areas--for 1,726 hours from fiscal 2011 through this April, according to the Government Accountability Office. At times, the drones--or Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS)--were being used for purposes other than border or immigration enforcement. But the GAO does not have a full accounting of when and where the drones were flown, or what they were used for during the flight hours spent in “other airspace.” In a series of briefing slides provided in August to the staffs of the House and

In her just-released memoir, 27 year-old "Girls" star Lena Dunham claims that as a 19 year-old Oberlin College student in Ohio, she was raped by a college Republican. In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow. The most sensational moment comes from the fact that "Barry" wasn´t wearing a condom. In the next chapter, Dunham backtracks with the claim that she´s an "unreliable narrator" and accuses "Barry" of rape: [I]n another essay in this book I describe a sexual encounter with a mustachioed campus Republican as the upsetting but

A recently retired Secret Service agent told MailOnline on Thursday that former director Julia Pierson´s resignation will be welcomed by the agency´s rank-and-file because ´people in the service thought she was a joke from Day One.´ He attributed her swift fall from grace to a cadre of ´p***ed off agents who had had enough´ of feeling disrespected by the service´s first female director. ´Putting her in charge was part of the [Obama] administration´s push to feminize the service after the "hookergate" nightmare,´ the agent said, referring to agents who were fired after patronizing prostitutes during a security-check trip to Colombia

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. We discover that lapses in

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

A recent fight between Rosie O´Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg has producers at The View looking to add a cool-down room for the ladies. After being cut off by Goldberg during an episode last week so the show could go to commercial, O´Donnell began to express how upset she was and, after being told repeatedly by Goldberg it was not the right time to have that discussion, eventually got cursed out by the Oscar winner. Goldberg told O´Donnell, ´F*** it, I told you to leave it alone and you just don´t want to listen. If you want to go there Rosie,

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

Meghan McCain joined the dog pile on the Secret Service this week, saying she’s had “nothing but horrible experiences" with the agency and likening the agents to “glorified mall cops.” The 29-year-old author and television personality, who is also the daughter of former GOP presidential candidate Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), opened up on Pivot’s “TakePart Live” about some of her interactions with the Secret Service. "I have nothing but horrible experiences with the Secret Service,” McCain said. “One of my friends called them glorified mall cops and I don´t think that´s terribly far off. I found them cliquey. I hated

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in

Go to a grocery store in California and buy all the milk, eggs and vegetables you want. But there’s one thing you won’t find at the checkout line, beginning July 1, 2015: Plastic bags to carry your stuff home. Gov. Jerry Brown (D) on Tuesday signed into law a ban on single-use plastic bags, making California the first state to prohibit stores from using the ubiquitous carry-alls. Shoppers will be charged 10 cents for every paper bag and heavy-duty plastic bag they use. “This bill is a step in the right direction,” Brown said in a press release announcing his approval. “It

The hawkish Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina says he is thinking about running for president in 2016. In an interview with Stephen Hayes of the Weekly Standard, the senator, running for re-election to the Senate this year, said: “If I get through my general election, if nobody steps up in the presidential mix, if nobody’s out there talking — me and McCain have been talking — I may just jump in to get to make these arguments,” Graham said. Graham, 59, also dismissed Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, 43, as a presidential candidate, saying he is too young. “He’s a good

Speaking at a Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors event last night, Hillary Clinton decided to talk about Alexis de Tocqueville. The problem? She got it wrong -- by about a hundred years. "There´s a wonderful phrase that was first used by Alexis de Tocqueville, who came to the United States in the very early 1930s and traveled around our country," said Hillary Clinton, a probable 2016 presidential candidate. "And he was so amazed at how Americans organized themselves -- you know, coming from aristocratic Europe, which was totally top-down and hierarchical -- he couldn´t believe how many of us were joiners.
