But I’ll bet the Appeaser-in-Chief keeps this “you-can-keep-your-policy” promise unlike the one made to Americans under the domestic equivalent of the bomb, known as Obamacare.
President Barack Obama is a serial liar but, like a stopped clock, occasionally also tells the truth. For instance, he promised skyrocketing energy prices. They set a record high in October. He promised to bankrupt the coal industry with new carbon emissions-standards. The war on coal is clearly on the offensive and in the direction of bankruptcy courts in West Virginia, Kentucky and Pennsylvania.
In Iraq and Afghanistan, he promised surrender. American troops have abandoned the former terrorist playground of Saddam Hussein with nary a footprint left behind; while President B. Hussein Obama has set a 2014 date-certain deadline for withdrawal in the former safe haven of al Qaeda and their Taliban hosts in Afghanistan.
Which brings us to the number one state-sponsor of terror on Earth since 1979, Continue reading
The President still emphasizes the “credible threat of military action”, but does anyone think Obama won’t seize upon the Russia-Syria WMD proposal as the preferable way out of his red-line corner than congressional vote gambits?
Probably not, and given the character of the man Americans inexplicably re-hired to wield our nukes (and continue to wreck the economy), the Putin proposal that Assad turn over control of its chemical weapons to international monitors is likely the least-worse scenario to “resolve” President Obama’s Syrian debacle, given other likely options.

On September 10, 1813, after winning the Battle of Lake Erie at Put-In-Bay, Ohio, thus vanquishing the British Royal Navy from the Great Lakes in the War of 1812, U.S. Commander Oliver Hazard Perry declared: “We have met the enemy and they are ours.”
200 years later, Vladamir Putin’s Russian Navy guards Syria’s bays for Iran. Secretary of State John Kerry previously met Bashar al-Assad and declared him a “reformer”. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton met Putin and declared a “re-set” before Commander-in-Chief Barack Hussein Obama met Putin-puppet Dmitry Medvedev and declared post-election strategic and nuclear arsenal-surrender “flexibility”; even as he begged to meet with Iran’s mullahs as they mowed down liberty-seeking youth in the streets.

Christians, Jews, women, and freedom-loving Muslims await compassion from liberal Democrats who have showered their love on the former Soviet Union, Viet Cong, Sandinistas, Fidel Castro, Yassir Arafat, ‘Reformer’ Assad, Iranian Mullahs, and Sharia-imposing Muslim Brotherhoods.
Poor Americans desiring full-time work for middle class wages would also appreciate some consideration from the food stamp, green energy, gay marriage, amnesty for illegals, Obamacare, contraceptive and race-obsessed re-elected president and his Democratic Party, but I digress.
This admittedly former neo-con, but still U.S. national security hawk, could be receptive to action by our armed forces in Syria to deter and secure weapons of mass destruction given a variety of circumstances and scenarios. After the non-WMD attacks on our American homeland nearly 12 years ago, we considered the removal of serial-WMD-user Saddam Hussein in Iraq, the degrading of Iran’s nuclear program, as well as the elimination of the safe haven-for-al-Qaeda-and-Taliban nation-state in Afghanistan to be post-9/11-imperatives for the U.S. and the Free World generally.
Thanks to the pre-surge ‘stay the course’ persistence of President George W. Bush, congressional Republicans and Democrat-turned-Independent-Senator Joe Lieberman, Iraq was liberated toward a purple-fingered Third Way and Core al Qaeda and the Taliban were decimated. Continue reading
Did over four months of begging the United Nations to authorize the invasion of Iraq aid in the discovery of the stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons of mass destruction that the U.N. had determined Saddam Hussein had in 1998 and which he had used many times? We didn’t think so.
President Barack Hussein Obama now wants Congress to pre-approve U.S. military action designed to punish the Bashar al-Assad regime for crossing the use-of-WMD “red line” he first drew in Syrian sand on August 20, 2012:
“While I believe I have the authority to carry out this military action without specific congressional authorization, I know that thecountry will be stronger … and our actions will be even more effective” if the strike is authorized by Congress, Obama said Saturday in a televised address from the Rose Garden.
