Skip to comments.Obamaís Shameful ISIS Strategy": He has one, but itís not what you think.

Those people who say that President Obama has no clear vision and no clear strategy for dealing with the Islamic State terrorists in the Middle East may be mistaken. It seems to me that he has a very clear and very consistent strategy. And a vision behind that strategy.
First, the strategy which is to get each crisis off the front pages and off television news programs as quickly as he can, in whatever way he can, at the lowest political cost. Calling the Islamic State junior varsity months ago accomplished that goal.
Saying before the 2012 elections that bin Laden is dead and that terrorism was defeated accomplished the goal of getting reelected.
Ineffective sanctions against Iran and Russia likewise serve a clear purpose. They serve to give the illusion that Obama is doing something that will stop Iran from getting nuclear bombs and stop Russia from invading Ukraine.
This forestalls the massive and enraged outcries there would be if the public were fully aware that he was doing nothing serious enough to prevent either of these things from happening. Generations of Americans yet unborn may curse us all for leaving them hostage to a nuclear terrorist Iran. But generations yet unborn do not vote, so they carry no weight with Barack Obama.
No one has a perfect batting average in any field, so Obama has been caught in some dicey situations, such as the sudden eruption of the Islamic State on the world stage, with their videotaped beheadings that make it hard to get them off the front pages and off the TV newscasts.

That’s the one I have believed from the beginning.
On page 261 of the paperback edition of Audacity of Hope Obama wrote: I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.
Yes, Obama has no plans to deal with ISIS, only plans to relieve the political pressure on himself.
Time to amend that quote with ... "and I will provide them with the weapons they need to reestablish the Caliphate". Once a Sunni, always a Sunni. Even if you are President of the United States.
0bama’s plan for ISIS is to let it fester and undermine Western Civilization forever.
0bama never calls for wiping them out.
Obama gives just enough “care speech” to give liberals excuses to keep supporting him as a Lincoln man of action, and for Rino idiots like McCain to keep saying the like of Hillary is great leader.
As for his strategy, it is the language of the pimp. He sees an opportunity through ISIS to convey sheeple sentiment that makes him revered.
Obama is not going to Congress ,because Congress might make him actually do something
A bunch of academics sitting around, puffing on cigars, and making jokes.
Notice that Hagel and Homeland Security are not on the list.
0bama looking to be able to tell the public tomorrow that he got input from all these “experts”.
When America elected Obama as POTUS they didn’t know that they were going to put the fox in charge of the henhouse.
They still don’t know or pretend to not know.
Obama’s strategy is like it was for other crisis ........
illegal immigration .... fades from the headlines
IRS scandal ..... fades from the headlines
The media is responsible for letting him get away with it. Without the media, we would have never had this evil bast@rd in office. The media is destroying this nation.
In Tehran, Moscow and Peking, where adults play the game for keeps, they are laughing at amateur hour in the United States.
In London, Berlin, Riyadh, and Tel Aviv, where adults also play this game for keeps, they are wondering what deals they can cut in a new order where we are no longer serious players.
I agree with you 110%. This is what you get with an ideologically “pure” democrat/communist media/entertainment/academia propaganda complex.
All Freepers should do a google search of “No-go zones” in Europe and the United States. These are Muslim zones where sharia controls. Coming to a community near you.
Does that telegraph his true intentions regarding his plans for ISIS or what.
In a way I'm glad - my heart goes out to any military person who goes into harms way with this louse as his commander and chief.
I think he's nailed it- in fact I think that is his strategy for EVERYTHING...
Right! As soon as this Ray Rice thing blows over we can concentrate on...wait...what?
