Yesterday, Obama said this:
If a finalized plan is presented to me … by the Pentagon … then I will share it with the American people. It’s not … uh … uh … I … eh … we don’t yet have … uh … a … uh … a complete strategy because it requires commitments on the part of the Iraqis as well … uh … about how recruitment takes place … how that training takes place … uh … and so details of that are … are not yet worked out.
Let’s hop in the Way-Back Machine and go back to late August, 2014. Back then, Barack Obama, dolled up in his spiffy tan suit, announced to the world that he doesn’t have a strategy for fighting ISIS.
At the time, I wrote the following column in response. This column now appears in the second volume of Dianny Rants RANT 2.0: Even More Politics & Snark in the Age of Obama, and it bears revisiting today.
Strategy – August 29, 2014
So, our Miracle-Man, our “I got bin Laden” Commander-in-Chief, our lower the seas and heal the planet Messiah went on record yesterday declaring that he does not have a strategy to deal with the ever-growing caliphate spreading across the Middle East like a bad case of the clap.
Harken back to last week after James Foley was beheaded by a Brit before a world audience. Obama’s hurried statement was chock-a-block with inane absurdities, but none so idiotic as this:
“One thing we can all agree on is that a group like ISIL has no place in the 21st century.”
It appears Obama’s strategy for ISIS is to shut his eyes really, really tightly and declare that they are just out of step with the modern world, and therefore, if we ignore them, why, they’ll just disappear like a unicorn fart.
Obama’s strategy is to continue to live in LaLa Land where windmills provide us with an endless supply of renewable energy, healthcare is free, the world is safe, and Nancy Pelosi is a real looker.
Everybody laughs and mocks this seemingly ignorant, incompetent President for making Jimmy Carter look like Ronald Reagan.
And, once again, they are mocking him for his “we don’t have a strategy” gaffe.
Twitter hashtags erupted mocking this feckless twit.
The brilliant Iowahawk landed on it with both feet:
It is pretty damn mock-worthy.
But is it really true?
Does Obama not have a strategy for ISIS?
I say he absolutely does.
You know, appeasement is a strategy.
Aid and comfort to the enemy is a strategy.
“Leading from Behind” is a strategy of surrender.
Barack Obama’s strategy has been all along to undermine the sovereignty and strength of the United States of America.
It isn’t that he doesn’t have a strategy.
It’s just that his strategy is so profoundly repugnant to the majority of citizens in this country that he can’t just come on out and say what it is.
While Americans are beginning to legitimately fear our open, unprotected borders that are so inviting to those who seek to do us harm, Obama has to try and hide his actual strategy from public eye.
I think Rush might be onto something when he says the Enslaved Press narrative that Obama has become detached is a lie. Obama wants to appear disconnected from his policies because his policies are destroying this country.
His announcing to the world that he doesn’t have a strategy is just another way of looking disconnected from what is going on.
That is the strategy.
Whether it is standing aside while Iran develops nuclear capabilities or quietly arming the Syrian Rebels (AKA ISIS), or aiding the Libyan rebels who went on to slaughter a US Ambassador and three other men in Benghazi, the Obama Administration’s strategy is pretty damn hard to miss.
It’s the exact same strategy that has flung open our borders and permitted an invasion of illegals from God knows where.
The strategy is the conquering of the Federal Republic known as the United States of America.
Obama and his ilk despise this country.
Don’t forget, this is the man who, in 2001 penned an article effectively blaming US “greed” and hegemony for the attack on 9/11.
We’re the bad guy in Obama’s eyes.
As far as he is concerned, America’s Superpower status has no place in the 21st Century.
America standing as a shining city on a hill is “arrogant, dismissive and derisive.”
Obama’s strategy is to neuter us.
Do you think it keeps him up at night that ISIS is recruiting Americans?
Do you think it bothers him one bit that terrorists have an all-access pass to our nation through our southern border?
Obama’s strategy isn’t non-existent.
It is very much apparent and, without question, treasonous.
