The Incredible Shrinking President ... J. D. Longstreet

The Incredible Shrinking President
A Humiliating Debacle For America
A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet


Well, Obama just finished off what little was left of America's credibility around the world.

As we have said so often before, he is the least qualified President the US has ever had.  He just proved it.

No amount of excuses from the left will cover the fact that Obama blinked. Hell, he didn't just blink, he ran.  Putin and Assad must be bent double in laughter at Obama's high-stepping, backwards, away from a fight.

The national honor of the US has just suffered a tremendous blow.  We will pay for it for decades to come. 

I sincerely hope Bibi Netanyahu and the nation of Israel understand they are on their own with Iran.  Any influence Obama may have had in any kind of negotiations with Iran is totally gone. Now that Iran has seen just how serious a threat from this administration REALLY is, they have zero fear and, I suspect, perceive this all as a green light for the go ahead to compete their nuclear program so they can attack Israel and the US with nuclear weapons as soon s possible. (When a US coastal city goes up in a mushroom cloud Americans will know where to place the blame.)

I hope the Israelis will take the bit firmly in their teeth now and go ahead and do what must be done to save the world from Iran.  It is clear there is no longer a US with the character, the intestinal fortitude, the guts, the cahones, to lead the world as America has in the past.  

It is fairly certain the Congress will NOT give Obama the OK to attack Syria.  Why? Well, it might be because some 80% of Americans don't want to attack Syria.  Most of us cannot define a single American interest in Syria.  Most of us understand there would be no victory in Syria.  And, frankly, many of us are tired of having our military used as some sort of political bludgeon.

And how must Secretary of State John Kerry feel now?  I mean, his boss just made a complete blithering fool of Kerry before the entire world.  Does he resign?  Should he resign?  And he gave up a safe seat in the US Senate to become Obama's fool.  

In any event, Congress will not return to Washington for about another week.  Understand, nothing says thy must place a debate on military action against Syria at the top of their "to do" list.  You can bet the phone lines and the Capitol Hill switchboard  will be red hot as will their email inboxes.

In the meantime, a President the Mainstream Media is already trying to paint as the target of all sorts of humiliation, did not retire to the Oval Office to contemplate his next move to gain congressional approval for an attack on Syria. No.  He sped off to the golf course at Ft. Belvoir.  See, he is sure he WON'T get Congressional approval and with THIS move he can extract himself from the corner he painted himself into months ago with his over active mouth pronouncing "red line" markers.

It is extremely difficult for those of us on the right side of the political spectrum to believe that a president could deliberately make such wrong-headed decisions.  It is hard to wrap our minds around the possibility that a man could deliberately do what Obama has done to America.  And yet, there it is. He has taken America from the pinnacle to the gutter in four and a half years -- and played golf or was on vacation for a good portion of the time.

Can there be any doubt, any doubt at all, that under Obama's leadership America is headed down the same route as the city of Detroit?  When a nation's leader treats the nation as a banana republic, that nation will become a banana republic. 

I am shamed by the actions of my President over the "Syrian Adventure."  Shamed and humiliated.  I am also angry.  I'm angry that the electorate saw fit to give the man another four years to destroy the work it has taken some 238 years to build. 

Up to this past weekend, Americans had decades of work ahead of us repairing the damage Obama had already done.  After his cowardly actions of backing down from Assad and Putin, it will take at least a century to claw our way back. -- if we ever can.

I too am embarassed by our president. I can NOT think of a single good thing this man has done, and at one time, could point to obamacare as his biggest screw up in destroying this country...until now. This syrian mess can be devastating to this country.

America is NOT immune to the laws of reality and actions versus consequences. America can fail, and will, if changes are not made soon. I bet the Romans never thought Rome would fall, until it did. I bet they were in utter disbelief that Rome could fail. Well, the same for many Americans. Some 50% think America can just keep taking hit after hit, and spend money like no tomorrow and all will continue as normal, while the other half have been screaming that this needs to stop before all is lost.

Well, Those of us screaming will soon be proven right, but only after it's too late. Kinda like a person running around yelling that someone is trying to kill them, and being laughed at, until they actually end up dead.

I have come to the point that the only people who voted for obama, did so for one of three reasons. They truly hate this country and want it to fall so that socialism/communism can take over, those that are black, and those that are truly ignorant. If there is a 4th category, I would like to hear it...but I can not think of one.

I have had several family members vote for this POS and everytime I see what is being done, I start to hate these family members more and more. As for one of them, they will one day look to me for help retiring. They thought they might one day live with me and my family, but I can tell you, that will NOT happen now. I will asure them however that obama has their retirement all planned out for them and they can look to him for their care later in life.

I am not sure who I despise more sometimes. obama or these family members. I mean, obama is doing what we all knew he would, so that is to be expected. But these family members are either evil or sheer stupid, despite my keeping them informed as to what obama is constantly doing. Their excuse on not voting for Romeny...he seemed arrogant so they voted for obama. WHAT!!!??

They can go live in a box in an alley for all I care.

I am convinced that Obama is a Muslim. I don’t mean in a casual way, I mean a deeply devout Muslim that has lied his way to the top of the American political chain to become the most powerful man on earth.

I am also convinced that Obama is a narcissist with a massive ego, one that can be used against him, and I believe that the Muslims that Obama has embraced see that too and are now engaging in an attempt to psychologically manipulate Obama into playing their game, their way.

Obama is playing games my friend; he is trying to *game* the Syrians, the Muslim Brotherhood and the citizens of this United States of America. Obama is hoping that Congress approves his idea of striking Syria, even though there has been no solid proof that the Syrian regime gassed its own people, and failing that, with or without Congressional approval, he is going to hit Syria anyway.

It’s that EGO thing, Obama is going to try and prove that he is a MAN. Sadly, he can’t SPELL man.
