Reeling from his idiotic “ISIS is contained” comment as the terror group killed 129 civilians in Paris, Obama is being perceived by the world as a leader with no coherent strategy and perhaps no particular interest in taking on Islamic murderers. After ISIS took credit for the terror attacks in Paris, Obama’s lack of a serious policy for fighting terrorism was exposed. And ISIS was no longer contained in the Middle East.
ISIS has demonstrated an ability to strike wherever they please, revealing Obama’s ISIS containment policy as nothing more than a pipe dream. The administration couldn’t spin the embarrassing disconnect between Obama’s claims and the spectacular set of coordinated attacks that shocked the world. The White House’s global fight against extremists is pathetically short on action and, as with all things “Obama,” long on talk and political posturing. Russia and France are leading the fight while America is sitting on the bench.
Obama has decided to blame his less than stellar performance as Commander in Chief on his administration’s faulty communication skills. That is, his strategy to contain the Islamic State didn’t work because it wasn’t clearly communicated to the American public or around the world. Only Obama would have the audacity to make such an idiotic claim.
Yet here he is, facing criticism at home and abroad for having no cogent plan to confront and defeat the world’s most dangerous terror organization. Only Barack Obama would find no shame in being considered feeble and incompetent when compared with the President of France who is taking the fight to the terrorists on their home turf. Russian forces are in Syria. But Obama is making his case for a steady and persistent campaign to shrink ISIS territory using air power, drones and indigenous ground forces.
And let’s not forget diplomacy. History has shown sub-human, Islamic terrorists to be very receptive to laying down their arms for fear of receiving a moderate rebuke from a weak American president.
In short, the Regime will pass the entire mess off to the next administration and then criticize their response-whatever it may be- on MSNBC. Regardless of their policy, Obama will claim that his Administration did a superior job. And it’s a safe bet that the media will give him a pass.
In the coming months, the White House will implement a full court Public Relations press to provide the American people with the appearance that the administration is actively conducting a winning campaign. And why not! It wasn’t long ago that the Regime hoped to convince Americans that the Benghazi attack was triggered by a YouTube video!
The Regime’s Public Relations scams are no longer working because the public knows that nothing which comes from the Obama White House can be depended upon as fact. But it hardly matters. Obama only needs to lie and cheat for one more year.
Thank God for that.
