Why Obama’s ‘we don’t have
a strategy’ gaffe stings

Washington Post, by Aaron Blake

Original Article

Posted By:PageTurner, 8/29/2014 11:56:05 PM

By now, President Obama´s remark that "we don´t have a strategy yet" has made the rounds. Republicans were quick to pounce on it, as well they should have. But while the White House went into damage-control mode, emphasizing that it was a reference to the lack of decisions about increasing military action in Iraq and/or Syria and not a lack of a broader strategy there, the damage was already done. As with all gaffes, the worst ones are the ones that confirm people´s preexisting suspicions or fit into an easy narrative. That´s why "47 percent" stung Mitt Romney so much, and it´s

Comments:
It stings because it positively yodels the truth we all know about him.

There has indeed been a most purposeful and overarching strategy since Day 1 of Hope and Change: cut America down to size. Not a single day has passed since January 20, 2009 that this strategy has not been implemented with the full force of the Oval Office.

It´s what you voted for, Washington Post, and what you daily try to cover-up, so stop the stupid griping.

LUBBOCK, Texas -- Cops are on the hunt for a previously deported 14-year-old illegal alien suspected of trying to execute a teenaged human smuggler on the Texas border in an apparent cartel hit. The victim in the case had a lengthy criminal history that had already resulted in two deaths. While details remain unknown, investigators with the Hidalgo County Sheriff´s Office began looking into the case on Sunday when they found a 16-year-old with a gunshot wound to the head inside a crashed vehicle. The victim survived the hit but ended up dying on Monday morning; Justice of the Peace Luis

One quarter of the nation´s 11 million illegals are believed to now reside in the Golden State, with that lawlessness spreading in multiple areas. This month, the feds rounded up nearly $100 million in Mexican illegal cartel cash from 70 Los Angeles garment district collaborators, calling it "the epicenter" of money laundering in the Western Hemisphere. That´s some foreign investment you´ve attracted, governor. More to the point, when California´s voters passed Proposition 187 in 1994, illegal immigrants numbered just 1.3 million in California, with 308,000 of them children, costing taxpayers $3 billion, according to the Federation for American Immigration Reform. Today that figure

Construction has begun on a giant observation tower in the heart of the Amazon basin to monitor climate change. The Amazon Tall Tower Observatory is expected to rise 325m from the ground. Its instruments will gather data on greenhouse gases, aerosol particles and the weather in one of the largest continuous rain forests on the planet. Brazilian and German scientists hope to use the data to better understand sources of greenhouse gases and answer questions on climate change. The tower is being constructed out of steel that was brought thousands of kilometers from the south of Brazil to the site, about 160km

The team at “Our Bad Media” claims to have found more than two dozen episodes of “Fareed Zakaria GPS” that featured content that was “lifted without proper attribution.” The content was lifted from outlets such as The New York Times, The Economist and National Review, along with academic papers and documentaries (as seen below). “Zakaria will simply recite numbers and facts without any attribution. In others, he’ll cite a study or paper when he really only lifted someone else’s reporting on it,” according to the report. “In all of them, Zakaria fails to give credit where it’s due, either on the show

Around 1.5 million Venezuelans have decided to emigrate in search of a better future for their families. The figure accounts to between 4% and 6% of the overall population. Approximately 88% of these expatriates have made up their mind to emigrate over the last 15 years. The Bolivarian diaspora is a reversal of fortune on a massive scale. Through most of the 1960s and 1980s Venezuela was a haven for immigrants, first for refugees fleeing dire living conditions in Europe, mainly Spanish, Italian and Portuguese, then, in the 1980s, for Latin Americans seeking a land of economic prosperity and liberties.

What do Whoopi Goldberg and Rosie O’Donnell think of Charles Krauthammer? Whoopi, the show’s moderator, thinks Krauthammer is a “narcissist” and O’Donnell, well, has never even heard of him. Opening the show Tuesday, “The View” foursome discussed the syndicated columnist’s recent comments that President Obama is a “narcissist.” “He’s calling President Obama a ‘narcissist,’ saying he’s so self-involved,” said Goldberg. “He uses terms like ‘my military,’ ‘my intelligence community’ in speeches and calling him a narcissist is, I guess…that’s how narcissists refer to other narcissists, right?” “Who is that guy?

Gerald Cheek, now retired from his position as Falkland Islands Director of Civil Aviation, has addressed a letter to the Penguin News clarifying some details about the ´Unwelcome visits from aircraft´, clearly in reference to episodes of Argentine aircraft incursion and landing in the Islands. This was motivated by an article in the Penguin News about the flight of Argentine-Irish pilot Miguel Fitzgerald solo flight in a Cessna 185 aircraft to the Islands in 1964, where he landed at the Stanley racecourse. In effect, Mr. Cheek says that what did puzzle him was the distance stated by Fitzgerald, 550 miles from

U.N. calls for decriminalization

As part of a visit to Chile assessing the country’s treatment of women’s rights reform, a team of U.N. experts published a report on Wednesday expressing support for the legalization of abortion under special circumstances for girls younger than 18 years of age. U.N. human rights experts Frances Raday and Alda Facio arrived in Chile last week to urge the government to enact reform aimed at increasing women’s political participation, protecting them from domestic violence and decreasing teenage pregnancy, among other issues. “Chile finds itself at an opportune moment in which it has the economic capacity and the political will to make

The very public break-up between Rep. Mark Sanford and his fiancée came as a surprise to his fiancée, who told the New York Times on Saturday that she learned about it from the media. Maria Belen Chapur told the Times that she had spent time with Sanford in Paris last week. Chapur had such a wonderful time during their time in France that she felt it was like a “honeymoon,” she said. But then she learned Saturday that Sanford had written a 2,400-plus word post on Facebook announcing his intention to break up with her. “I learned it from the press today,”

The front page of today’s New York Times features an article titled Paths to War, Then and Now, Haunt Obama. It is an exercise in journalism as a hall of mirrors. The article, by Peter Baker, is “based on interviews with 10 people who spoke with [Obama] in the days leading up to his speech Wednesday night.” These conversations occurred on two occasions: a dinner at the White House for “a group of foreign policy experts and former government officials,” and a separate discussion with a “group of columnists and magazine writers.” Baker’s article includes extensive quotes by President Obama,

Immigration: When California Gov. Jerry Brown hung out the "all welcome" sign for illegals, Mexico´s drug cartels heard him loud and clear. Raids on Thursday left lawmen declaring Los Angeles a cash-laundering mecca. Roping off 100 blocks of downtown Los Angeles this week, federal agents from the U.S. attorney´s office raided roughly 70 garment district businesses along with a few houses in tony Westwood and Beverly Hills. The suspected crime was laundering money for Mexico´s Sinaloa cartel. Agents hauled out $65 million in cash stuffed in duffel bags, suitcases and boxes, some of it blood-spattered.

As temperatures soared Friday, a brush fire burning in the mountains of Cleveland National Forest south of Corona grew to 1,600 acres, sending a plume of smoke towering above Silverado Canyon that was visible from miles away. Mandatory evacuations started at 6 p.m. for the area from 30331 Silverado Canyon Road east to the end of the canyon, authorities. That order was issued in part because of expected nighttime downslope winds that could push the flames into populated areas in the canyon bottom, Battalion Chief Mike Petro said. Brush left very dry by the state’s historic drought had created heavy fuels that were burning

President Barack Obama has declined to attend a dedication ceremony in October for a new memorial honoring American veterans who have been disabled fighting for their country in wars, according to sources close to the event. The American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial (AVDLM), the first such memorial of its kind, is set to be dedicated during a ceremony on Oct. 5 near the National Mall in downtown Washington, D.C. However, Obama, who was first invited to attend the event in January, will not be among those in attendance, according to a source who is familiar with the situation. This

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said comparing Republican treatment of President Obama to how Democrats handled President George W. Bush is a false equivalence and that Democrats don’t bear culpability for the comparatively fewer number of bills being passed by Congress and signed into law. “Let me just say that any of this equivalence, both sides, this or that, no — we never treated President Bush the way they treat President Obama,” she said Monday on MSNBC. “It’s no use whining about it; we just have to get people out to vote” and make people aware there’s an election this

First Lady Michelle Obama has made healthy eating and exercise her signature issue. But, a recent study published by the Sage Journal found that her “elitist” advice actually “shames poor and middle class mothers.” The College Fix added that the study found that Michelle Obama’s healthy eating program is also sexist. It’s also sexist, the study’s authors suggest, noting that “intentionally or not, it places the burden of a healthy home-cooked meal on women.” Sage Journals published the study by North Carolina researchers Sarah Bowen, Sinikka Elliott and Joslyn Brenton. Here are a few of the findings: Magazines such as Good Housekeeping and

President Barack Obama unveiled his plan to tackle the Ebola crisis in West Africa on Tuesday, promising to do far more to tackle the deadly virus he said could result in "hundreds of thousands of people infected" without US intervention. "More than 2,400 men, women, and children are known to have died and we strongly suspect that the actual death toll is higher than that," Obama said in a speech at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Georgia. "Hospitals, clinics, and the few treatment centers that do exist have been completely overwhelmed." The president was particularly dire

Democrats are now (very slightly) favored to hold the Senate majority on Nov. 4, according to Election Lab, the Post´s statistical model of the 2014 midterm elections. Election Lab puts Democrats´ chances of retaining their majority at 51 percent -- a huge change from even a few months ago when the model predicted that Republicans had a better than 80 percent chance of winning the six seats they need to take control. (Worth noting: When the model showed Republicans as overwhelming favorites, our model builders -- led by George Washington University´s John Sides -- warned that the model could and

The Obama administration is preparing to introduce major steps to phase out production of a popular chemical coolant used in refrigerators and air conditioners, citing growing evidence that the substance is contributing to the warming of the planet. The White House will announce on Tuesday a series of voluntary commitments by some of the country’s largest chemical firms and retailers to move rapidly away from R-134a and similar compounds used in nearly every office, home and automobile in the country, according to current and former U.S. officials familiar with the effort.

Washington - The current threat posed by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, will test not only the resolve and strategic judgment of America and its allies, but also our nation’s fidelity to a basic constitutional principle. Our Constitution reserves to Congress the power to declare war and designates our president as the commander in chief, but our recent history has been characterized by executive overreach and legislative abdication in the initiation of military action. The current crisis gives us an opportunity to restore the proper balance between the branches. America’s history since 2001 should compel us to fix the way

Bill Clinton never inhaled. Rush Limbaugh says he never smoked it. Marco Rubio won´t answer whether he ever did smoke pot but Sarah Palin admitted she smoked it in her youth and didn´t like it. Those pushing to have more states legalize marijuana consider this drug rather harmless, medically beneficial and liberal politicians consider this issue one that will attract voters. I don´t blame Rubio for not discussing whether he indulged n his youth or not. He is a public official with young children and carries a different responsibility than the rest of us.

The New York Democrat said she was enraged when the politician had the gall to tell her she was too fat to win election after giving birth to her second child. “I had to just sit there and talk to him,” Gillibrand said in the interview, posted on the Huffington Post. “I switched the subject and I didn’t hear another word he said, but I wasn’t in a place where I could tell him to go f–k himself.”
