7th Grader

    As the 7th grader schoolyard punk stood there boasting and snarling out threats a 5th grader stepped forward to call his bluff.  Somewhat shocked but not wanting to show it, he turned to give his lackeys one of his famous “Do You Believe This Guy” Smirks… but as he turned he found he was standing all alone.  His throat tighten and sweat began to bead upon his brow.  He turned to face the upstart 5th graded only to find that another 5th grader joined him… and another… and another… and some 6th graders joined in to facedown the 7th grade schoolyard punk.  The once brazen and boastful child now weak and scared, slowly stepped back, then another step and another, his pace quickened until he was in a sprint… as he passed his class mates he yelled “Help me, help me, those kids are starting trouble”.  His class mates, who had been targets of the punk’s brow-beatings, ridicule and bullying stood silently, watching the spectacle unfold.

    This is the picture that came to mind as I watched Obama deal with his missteps in the Syrian civil war.  Once dependable allies have stepped away from the “Lead-From-Behind” leader not knowing if he’ll run off to Vegas or Martha’s Vineyard when the going gets tough.  Adversaries, Iran, Russia and China are stepping forward to defend their interest in the region… maybe their predictable position should have been considered prior to Obamas boastful “RED LINE’ was drawn, perhaps consulting the UN and letting them take charge (like 2+ years-ago and 120,000+ lives… what’s their purpose anyway, social engineering).  Obama laments that the “UN Security Council is ineffective and the timeline for action is excessive…”  Then why do we continue to fund the U.N., nothing better to spend taxpayer money on?  The Arab League (22 oil rich members) should be able to gather up a regional “Peace Keeping” force, after all part of their charter is to “Settle Arab disputes and limit conflicts”, Syria seems to fit the bill.

    For 4-1/2 years conservatives have been told by Obama “Do it MY way… or I’LL go around you and do it anyway”.  For 4-1/2 years conservatives have been ridiculed, lambasted, lied about and attacked by his minions in agencies like the IRS, EPA, NSA, DEA etc… “Tea Baggers” “Want to throw Grand-ma off the cliff” “Republicans WANT dirty air and water” “Flat-Earth Thinkers” etc…  Now the Republican leadership is coming out in favor of Obama’s unilateral decision to kill more Syrians as a reprisal for Syrians killing Syrians…  You’re about 119,000 dead Syrians late!  There is also talk of “Deal Making” for supporting Obamas actions, better ask Bill Clinton about “O” and how good his word is.  When Obama is looking to bring Republicans “onboard” for anything… Repeat ANYTHING, he’s looking for a rube or a patsy, someone to dump the blame on later when things go bad! “It’s Bushes Fault” “It’s the Tsunamis Fault” “It’s those Tea Baggers standing in the way” and the lap dog press will eat it up.  Gift from Obama, Vote Present! (If you even show up that day).  Don’t vote YES, don’t vote NO… He dug this hole, now he’s looking for someone to blame it on.  As far as America looking weak or loosing stature… that happened a few years back fellas’.  Where ya been?
    Do I like what’s happening in Syria or what has happened in the past 2+ years? HELL NO!  But it was allowed to fester for too long, we should have been leading the way at the start, negotiating, jumping up & down on the podium at the U.N., poking and prodding allies and adversaries to gain control over the situation… Now it’s too late.  It would have taken work and commitment and quite frankly Obama is just too lazy to manage either.  Obama, there is no good way out of this, I recommend you start pulling a Benghazi… blame it on a video, American Pop should do, it has America in it and some Jewish content, then you can head to VEGAS BABY, hit the links, 7 months of the press covering for you… who’s going to remember…
The family of Brian Terry?
The families of the 200+ men, women and children gunned down in Mexico? (and counting)
The families of 25 members of SEAL TEAM 6? (Extortion 17 helicopter shot down)

O’s missteps racked up quite a body count…
Guess it’s not all golf and vacations
