President Barack “Hope” Obama

One thing I like about President Barack Obama is, he never stops defending the indefensible. No matter how ridiculous his action or how big the lie. Like the great success Obamacare has been and how many millions of people have signed up (at the threat of government force and penalty) forgetting how many millions of Americans signed up because they had their policy cancelled because of the ACA.

Sooner or later, you have to conclude that when you continually have to justify what you are doing or what you have done to the American people, that maybe you’re not doing the people’s business? Maybe you’re not doing what they want? Maybe you are overstepping your Constitution boundary?

Latest example is his release of 5 of the world’s worse terrorists, declared so by the military. In exchange for one American soldier who, according to his letters, doesn’t like America as much as he.

According to a Reuters report . . .

Obama acknowledged that the Taliban fighters who were freed from the U.S. prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, in exchange for Bergdahl could engage in efforts that were detrimental to U.S. security again. He said he was confident the United States could go after those individuals if that were the case.

Right! Just like they went after the Islamic goons that killed Ambassador Stevens and three other Americans three years ago. NOT! The President is, yet again, placing Americans at risk by letting them go in the hope (hope is not a strategy) that they will like us and stop trying to kill us.

So where is the President’s concern for Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi, being abused in a Mexican jail on trumped-up weapons charges? Well, Tahmooressi loves his country and there would be no benefit to Islamist goons.

President Obama, our elected Commander-in-Chief, has demonstrated over and over his naiveté in foreign policy. If you can point to one successful, tactical foreign policy decision, then you’re a magician because there isn’t one. North Korea, China, Iran, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Russia, Ukraine, Egypt, Eastern Europe’s missile defense shield, Israel, Lebanon, Arab Spring, Red Lines.

Likewise, his military acumen as a warrior is totally laughable. Except for the fact that he is responsible for our sons and daughters in harm’s way. He fights wars based on timetables instead of results. And he announces them, not just to his political hacks but, to the enemy. He creates a false narrative about the Benghazi attack, and broadcasts apologies to the Islamist goons in Pakistan about a movie that they likely never saw. As if they will do anything other than laugh at his amateur hour.

Withholding judgment whether Bowe Bergdahl is a deserter (an investigation will tell), this latest prisoner swap (he does negotiate with terrorists) is yet another example of how far Barack Obama will go to 1) stick it to the military, 2) appease terrorists in hoping (“hope” is not a strategy) that they’ll like us, 3) let these 5 terrorist kingpins go free after one year (who were supposed to be detained until the cessation of hostilities, ie. indefinitely). That is, if Qatar doesn’t release them or allow them to escape beforehand, and 4) he finally has a chance to give preference or weight to an Islamist goon, over an American. When the era of slavery was coming to an end, there was a time when slaves counted as 3/5 of a person. But today, President Obama (who claims to be Black) has a chance to exercise a little payback. Bergdahl weighs in at 1/5. One American, in exchange for the 5 most dangerous terrorists on the planet.

And that makes sense to who? Makes one think that President Obama is on the wrong side in this war. Problem is, he thinks he’s on the right side.
