Well, well, well. Looks like someone isn’t getting the blind worship he has come to expect from the world.
It’s been a bad day for Barry. President Thin-Skin was mighty prickly today when he met with the press in Turkey and ended up fielding question after question about the United States’ lack of decisive action against ISIS..
Reporters simply would not accept Barack’s repeated claims that he is doing everything he can possibly do to
contain um … degrade … er … that is stop ISIS. Between that and the more forceful rhetoric coming from GOP Presidential candidates over the last few days things have not been going his way.
When the press hammered him about his lack of action against these Islamic extremists, Barack took a shot at the Republicans running to mercifully replace him:
“Some of them [Republican candidates] seem to think that if I were just more bellicose…
Bellicose. Don’t tell me choosing the word bellicose isn’t a slam at Trump.
…in expressing what we’re doing that that would make a difference because that seems to be the only thing that they’re doing, is talking as if they’re tough.”
And if anybody knows about talking as if he’s tough, it’s Barack Hussein Obama.
Oh, how he loves to put on his serious face and stare down the camera as he says things like “Let me be clear” and “Make no mistake.” Then, of course, he doesn’t do anything. You know. Like that “red line.”
Has there ever been a more tough-talking guy who never does a damn thing?
Let me tell you something, Barack. These guys aren’t just talking as if they’re tough. They are tough. I’d love to see you endure the kind of relentless attacks Ben Carson has. Hell, I’d like to see you try to separate conjoined twins.
And Ted Cruz? Honey please. I don’t recall you having the steel spine necessary to stand up, not only to the other party, but members of your own party back when you were a Senator.
And I’d love to see you run Trump’s company for a year. The company would probably go belly up, and you’d be stuck in the corner of the executive office suite curled in the fetal position sucking your thumb.
I mean, let’s be honest. Compared to you, even Lindsey Graham is tough.
No wonder Putin was laughing at Barry after their “meeting” yesterday.
I’m sure you heard about that.
Obama set up a one-on-one meeting with Putin Sunday during the G-20.
Mostly for the photo-op.
After the meeting, Putin was seen laughing at Obama and saying, “He’s a child. He’s a child.” [though, probably in Russian]
Any old how.
Apparently Barry is not particularly happy with the fact that the press actually grilled him today in that press conference. Boy, howdy did he get miffed.
I’m sure it didn’t help that back here in the States, one after another, Governors were announcing that they would not be permitting any refugee settlements to occur in their states. Last I heard, it was up to 25 (all but one a Republican state).
Pile on top of that the Republican candidates who, unlike the quisling little lightweights from Saturday’s Democrat debate, have been speaking very forcefully about the terror attack in Paris and defeating ISIS.
What’s a fella to do?!
All this lack of slobbering worship from the press, all the forceful talk from Republican candidates, plus states not dropping to their knees to do what Barack wants has clearly gotten to the guy.
Add to that the fact that the President of France, France for God’s sake, is acting decisively and doing a hell of a lot more than talking as if he’s tough, and it’s been a bad day for Barry.
If you watch any of the press conference, you can see Barry get more and more agitated as it progressed.
And then, Barack dropped this absolute boner of a comment.
“ We’ll do what’s required to keep the American people safe. And I think it’s entirely appropriate in a democracy to have a serious debate about these issues. If folks want to pop off and have opinions about what they think they would do, present a specific plan. If they think that somehow their advisors are better than the Chairman of my Joint Chiefs of Staff and the folks who are actually on the ground, I want to meet them. And we can have that debate. But what I’m not interested in doing is posing or pursuing some notion of American leadership or America winning, or whatever other slogans they come up with that has no relationship to what is actually going to work to protect the American people, and to protect people in the region who are getting killed, and to protect our allies and people like France. I’m too busy for that.” [Emphasis Dianny’s]
Ooooooh! Somebody is getting super testy!
Notice what he said there? “Whatever other slogans they come up with.”
Boy, that “Make America Great Again” of Trump’s is really getting under this child’s skin, ain’t it?
He isn’t interested in winning? Really?!
I know I’ve mentioned this before, but take a gander at what Sir Winston Churchill said about the fight against Germany in a speech before Parliament on May 30, 1940:
You ask, what is our policy? I say it is to wage war by land, sea, and air. War with all our might and with all the strength God has given us, and to wage war against a monstrous tyranny never surpassed in the dark and lamentable catalogue of human crime. That is our policy.
You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word. It is victory. Victory at all costs – Victory in spite of all terrors – Victory, however long and hard the road may be, for without victory there is no survival.
But not Barry.
Oh, no. Not at all. He isn’t interested in victory. He isn’t interested in American leadership.
Well, he’s too busy for that.
You can always tell when it’s a bad day for Barry. He gets as snippy as a thirteen year old girl who didn’t get invited to a popular girl’s birthday party. “But who cares?! Parties are stupid and I’m not interested in going anyway because I have better things to do!!!!”
Something tells me that the cloak of invisibility that kept Barack’s incompetence hidden from view — from the press, from the voters, from the world — has slipped away.
And today, in Turkey, the man who road into Europe on a donkey to claim his Peace Prize, ended up looking like an ass.
