PREPARE FOR GLORY!



Continuing a decades-old tradition of the Commander-In-Chief's circumventing Congress for approval on declaration of war, President Obama announced last week that he was sending 300 military advisers to Iraq.

Apparently, the President does not remember his recent history, or he'd have a clear picture of how our "military adviser" actions generally turn out...


Instead, it appears that Obama is not satisifed with his emporer status, and wants to be known as a conqueror, so he's thinking of the last time in recorded history that 300 soldiers made a difference...


...and perhaps, thinking of himself in more lofty terms...


And it really doesn't matter how this turns out, since the media will continue to kiss his ass, allowing him to continue to fall back on his stock explanation for his screw-ups...



Sadly, this screw up will cost more of our young men their lives.

And that's a helluva price to pay just so Obama can build up his legacy.

  1. There is one reason and one reason ONLY that I refuse to embrace Obama as my king and god:

    I'm a racist.

    1. He's half white/half black, so on the plus side, you're only half racist?

  2. I have been out of the news loop for a little while now so I didn't know about this one. I think I just hit my Threshold for BS and needed to take a break. Does anyone other than me remember his PROMISE during the 2008 campaign to bring our soldiers home? No one seemed to care that he didn't keep it because the Majority, or so they say, voted for this joker again. Maybe we have just hit that place where we EXPECT our politicians to lie to us and shrug it off after they do.

    As for the 300 to Iraq... I can't see anything good coming from that.

    1. I just wish the discussion would be grounded in truth...if we're there to protect our oil interests, say so.

      At least have the decency to let the families of the pawns know why their sons and husbands (and daughters and mothers) are being sacrificed.

  3. Like Robin, I hadn't heard of this. And yet it doesn't surprise me. First he makes a big deal out of bringing everyone home, now more people are being sent out there. Speaking of legacy, I do wonder how everyone will see Obama 50 years from now. His approval rating is pretty low and most everyone I talk to is sick of him, but who knows just how history will cement him in the books, eh?

    1. Bryan-

      I'd heard the same things about approval/sick of him back in '12 and he got re-elected.

      Maybe that was because Romney was not a strong enough alternative, but I still think most Americans (certainly most minority groups) like him.

      Maybe not enough for him to sneak through an executive order giving himself four more years, but I think the enchantment of the "first black president" will polish his legacy.

      While I disagree with the concept of Obamacare, I believe that will be remembered positively.

      But so many other things have been failures, and yet they do not stick to him. They called Reagan the Teflon president, but Obama makes Ronnie look like flypaper.

  4. In reading your comments, I agree his legacy will be that he was the first black president. What a shame for blacks everywhere!
