Barack Obama refuses to
decide and fails to act

Telegraph [UK], by Janet Daley

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 8/30/2014 8:11:04 PM

Just in case you thought that the Leader of the Free World was secretly harbouring a calculated, well-developed plan for bringing Isil under control and putting Russia’s imperial leader back in his box, Barack Obama banged that idea firmly on the head last week. [Snip] In the president’s exact words: “We don’t have a strategy yet.” When that bizarre statement hit the news outlets, the White House spin team flew into full-on operation (ie panic) mode and began tweeting to the effect that what the Commander-in-Chief had actually meant was that there was “a range of options” which were still

Comments:
Ms. Daley states firmly that the hallmark of Obama´s presidency is he "refuses to decide and fails to act". Nice motto to have affixed to your family coat of arms.

As always, Ms. Daley has collected together all the bits scattered about and made them into a stunning patchwork, this time of billowing danger and imminent threat. For instance, contrary to what many people might believe, Obama has yet to even suggest the UK help form a coalition.

I think you´ll like Ms. Daley´s description of Obama´s words as "pious obstruction." I hope this is considered a must read.

In the game of life Barry votes PRESENT and expects pixie dust to take care of the rest, just like it did during his Choom Gang days.

Janet Daley is not just another "pundit." She has been in the forefront of the detailed and factual criticism of the Obammunist from the first article she ever wrote. She is always very well informed and always crystallizes situations into clarity.

We ignore her at our peril.

Well done!

But...

This story doesn´t square with the Must Read "Latest Big Lie:‘We Have No Strategy’" from this morning.

Nor does it square with the CNN breaking L.Com story that American forces have bombed ISIS targets to retake Amerli, along with other allies.

What is really going on?

Either Obama is a cunning Manchurian Candidate who, along with Valerie Jarrett, is turning over America to Iran behind everyone´s back, or he is truly a dithering, blithering coward.

The only country with the military capability to deal with this crisis (as the president boasted) was the US but its intervention would be conditional on the participation of a “coalition of the willing”. For what? Moral cover? Shared political responsibility if it all went horribly wrong?

That is a no-brainer, given Obama´s utter refusal to make solo decisions, even with consultation with experts. Ultimately, decisions are his and he will not make them because they could fail. That is why he is still voting "present".

How Mr Putin, and the terrorists in the Middle East, must be enjoying all this.

You don´t have to go that far away to find people enjoying this. American liberals are rubbing their sweaty pacifist hands together even more enthusiastically than when Obamacare passed. They are very much enjoying how his pen and his phone became his surgical tools to disembowel America.

McCarthy was right.

There was a lot of pious obscurity but one thing was clear enough: America will do nothing alone. This would have to be a team effort in which the US would be just one player. So, instead of providing unequivocal leadership, the American presidency offered scarcely veiled threats.

Foley´s murder was an attack on the USA and Obama is asking others to help us deal with the murderers? This doesn´t make a lick of sense. We need to defend ourselves against the murderers(ISIS)and destroy them.

Mr. Potato Head and his marionette string puller Valerie Jarrett aren´t exactly doing anything that would help the civilized world, being manifestly uncivil people themselves devoted to bringing America down a few notches, down to the level of, say, Greek exceptionalism. And we all know how exceptional Greece is. If there were any justice in this world, Mr. Potato Head would die in prison for treason on a level never before seen, or even imagined. Whoever voted for him should quit voting in abject shame.

Bravely bold Osama bin Obama
Rode forth from a Camel lot.
He was not afraid to die,
Oh brave Osama bin Obama.
He was not at all afraid
To be killed in nasty ways.
Brave, brave, brave, brave Osama bin Obama.

He was not in the least bit scared
To be mashed into a pulp.
Or to have his eyes gouged out,
And his elbows broken.
To have his kneecaps split
And his body burned away,
And his limbs all hacked and mangled
Brave Osama bin Obama.

An actual Manchurian Candidate would have to put in some effort, give up a few vacations and golf outings, and maybe even come in to work before midmorning on the days he did work. Obama has been lazy and getting away with it for his entire life. No reason to stop now.

The one thread that runs through the ill-documented life of Barack Obama is laziness. So that is my thought as well, he´s too lazy to make a decision and act on it. That takes work, gathering information, talking to people, sorting through conflicting opinions. That´s too much like work for Obama. He´d rather go golf or take a vaction.

Syrian nuclear activities divide global

Western states defeated a Russian proposal on Friday to remove Syria´s alleged past nuclear activities from the agenda of meetings of the UN atomic agency, diplomats said. But in a vote that highlighted how polarizing the global political debate has become, China supported Russia´s initiative while only about half of the nations on the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) board - 17 out of 35 - voted against. Western diplomats argued that Damascus should be kept under pressure to cooperate with the IAEA´s long-stalled inquiry, even though this has hardly advanced in the last three years as the country descended into bloodshed.

A Mexican ecologist has blown the whistle on the corruption, lies and incompetence of the wind industry - and on the massive environmental damage it causes in the name of saving the planet. Patricia Mora, a research professor in coastal ecology and fisheries science at the National Institute of Technology in Mexico, has been studying the impact of wind turbines in the Tehuantepec Isthmus in southern Mexico, an environmentally sensitive region which has the highest concentration of wind farms in Latin America. The turbines, she says in an interview with Truthout, have had a disastrous effect on local flora and

Eric Frein, one of the FBI´s most wanted and the man authorities say killed a Pennsylvania state trooper last week, may soon be apprehended. For a second night, authorities on Friday closed roads near a home where a suspect in the ambush killing of a Pennsylvania State Police trooper recently lived with his parents, and this time gunfire was reported in the area. The shots were fired in the area around 6:40 p.m. Friday, a Monroe County 911 dispatcher said.

Some 23.9 percent of Americans polled from August 23 through September 16 said they strongly supported or tended to support the idea of their state breaking away, while 53.3 percent of the 8,952 respondents strongly opposed or tended to oppose the notion.

The U.S. Senate unanimously adopted the United States-Israel Strategic Partnership Act on Thursday evening, reports JNS. The bipartisan bill, which declares Israel to be a “major strategic partner,” was authored by Senators Barbara Boxer (D-CA) and Roy Blunt (R-MO) and had 81 co-sponsors. [Snip] Besides generally elevating the status of the U.S.-Israel relationship, the bill expands the Jewish state’s trade status to expedite export licensing, increases cooperation on energy and other technologies, maintains Israel’s qualitative military edge in the Middle East, and increases U.S. weapons stockpiles in Israel as well as Israeli access to them.

[Snip] Mr Miliband ducked the issue in his first response to the ´No´ referendum victory this morning--only declaring that he supported ´devolution´ in England. But Labour MPs are split on the issue, in a stand-off which threatens to derail the Government´s timetable for devolving further powers

GLASGOW, United Kingdom--As Scotland votes on independence, in a campaign led by Scottish First Minister Alex Salmond and a coterie of advisors, few can claim more influence than Member of the Scottish Parliament Humza Yousaf.

Alex Salmond’s dream of independence has been shattered after Scotland voted to stay part of the United Kingdom. Scotland today rejected independence and voted to remain part of the United Kingdom at the end of the most intense political campaign the country has ever seen. The silent majority finally raised its voice on a tense yet utterly compelling night of political history. During a referendum that attracted record numbers of voters and was hailed as a triumph of democracy, the people voted to maintain the 307-year Union. A decisive No vote was the culmination of two and a half-years of

Scotland has voted against independence. Here’s a quick look at what happens--and doesn’t happen--now: The Union stands. That is all. A political union that has lasted for 307 years continues. Scotland remains part of the United Kingdom. Border posts are not thrown up in the Cheviots. Britain’s nuclear-armed submarines remain based in Scotland. The pound, though it may wobble, does not tumble on currency markets. Billions of pounds invested in Scottish banks mostly stays put. As do the banks. The biggest constitutional crisis in British history does not happen. Alex Salmond has some tricky questions to answer.

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.

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

These children are facing an uncommon enterovirus strain. While enteroviruses in general are quite common, this particular strain — enterovirus 68 — has not cropped up terribly often since it was first identified in 1962. It can cause severe breathing problems, a particular danger for children who may suffer from asthma or other
