Obama's strategic foreign policy blunders could come home to roost

First comes the repeated mantra of our perpetual Campaigner-in-Chief while toying with our military personnel...
Rush: "Here’s the commander-in-chief, every day he has a chance, telling everybody it’s a total waste of time, it didn’t mean anything. And don’t worry, it was such a waste of time, I’m not gonna send any of you guys back there.

What are we doing, then, with ISIS? What is the whole point of this? Let me give you the hard numbers in the CBS/New York Times poll. You don’t have to read this story. I’m just gonna give you the hard numbers. Obama approval, disapproval on the issues. Immigration: 30% approve, 60% disapprove. Immigration — say amnesty, say after me, “amnesty” — 30% approval, 60% disapproval. Do you realize how dangerously close we came to the Republicans in Washington signing on to this?

What is Obama known for? When it comes to immigration, what is he known for? Opening the borders, saying come on in, granting amnesty to five or six, 11 million people. Thirty percent approval. I’ll say it again, this issue has never been one that a majority of Americans supported. It was more trickinology, folks. It was a giant trick trying to make everybody think that everybody in this country wanted the 11, 12 million illegals, whatever the number is, to have amnesty. That’s why there is no credit to accrue from doing this. Thirty percent approval, 60% disapproval on immigration.

On terrorism: it’s 41% approval, 50% disapproval. On foreign policy, 34% approval, 58% disapproval. And on the economy, 40% approval, 53% disapproval. These are all all-time lows for Barack Obama in the New York Times/CBS News poll. And then the other question, the other remaining question, is Obama tough enough in dealing with ISIS? Fifty-seven percent say “no.” Outrageous. He’s not a nice guy. That’s another thing. He’s not a nice guy, and he’s not cool, calm. This guy’s a bully in his own right, in his own way, and he’s certainly not cool; he’s cold."

Then what do our geniuses in D.C. do? Play right along with the joker in the White House, buying into the myth of the Syrian 'moderate'...
WaPo: The House on Wednesday approved President Obama’s plan to train and equip moderate Syrian rebels to counter the growing threat of the Islamic State terrorist organization even though lawmakers in both parties remain deeply skeptical about its chances for success.

The Senate is expected to give the plan final approval Thursday.

MARK LEVIN: “Obama has NO intention of defeating these Islamo-Nazi cockroaches! None!”
Oliver North: A General or Admiral needs to stand up and tell Obama this is mission impossible

Levin joined Hannity to lay out the entirety of Obama's foreign policy blunder...
Levin: "So the President doesn't think he needs congressional approval, a declaration of war, what have you, to bomb, but apparently he need congressional approval to arm 5000 whatevers. This is very odd. I just want to point this out, you actually have a revolt going on with the top generals and Obama. ...

Obama does not view this as a military action. He keeps telling us, 'it's not a war, it's not a war.' For him, the truth is it's about politics. It's about containing this issue politically for him, so he can focus on fundamentally transforming America. ...

So the generals and the military see this quite than our very political president, who really doesn't want to defeat this enemy, OR he'd go to Congress, get a declaration of war, unleash hell on these cockroaches, and then get out. Instead, he speaks to our military men and tells them, 'don't worry, no combat boots on the ground.' He has said it a thousand times, so everyone of our enemies in every single language can understand under this so-called Commander-in-Chief, he has no intention of defeating them, period."
Mark and Hannity similarly conclude Rush's sentiment: it's about getting past the polls and the midterms, then getting past the Obama regime and dumping on the next administration.

But another little interesting subject was briefly mentioned when Hannity asked about what all this means for the average American "when these guys get here?"
Levin: "I honestly don't think he gives a damn, as hard as that is to believe. How else do you explain him not securing the southern border? How else do you explain him being on vacation while this whole thing is breaking out? How else do you explain sending 3000 troops to Liberia and other places to fight Ebola, while we don't have 3000 troops at his direction on the border?"
Legitimate questions and concerns, particularly with utterance of the UN's attempt to push thousands of Islamic refugees on America, further exacerbating our illegal influx, along with the distinct possibility that the jihadis may already be here due in part to such lax rule of law these days.

Thus Obama's blunders over there coming home to roost. What a cluster...

ADDENDUM: Sen. Corker actually asked some genuinely reasonable questions to former senator-turned-Sec. of State Kerry, and what we understand better is that this Democratic administration of former senators has not a clue...

Breitbart: Wednesday at the Senate Foreign Relation Committee hearing on U.S. strategy for combating ISIS, Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) criticized President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and Secretary of State John Kerry as "three senators" exercising "terrible judgment" on the U.S. strategy against ISIS.

Kerry got into a heated exchange with Corker who said, "I want to say as I said personally, we have three senators, president, vice president, secretary of state, that are exercising terrible judgment right now. And to say that you're going to do this regardless of what we say, you're not going to ask for buy-in by the United States Senate or House of Representatives on behalf of the American people in a conflict that's going to be multiyear. Some people say a decade. Taking us into another country with a different enemy, is exercising the worst judgment possible."

"I've said this to you as strongly as I can personally, that in essence what you're saying to the chairman right now, saying if Congress wants to play a constructive role, we would welcome that, to me, this is a political game and I'm disappointed that you as secretary of state, being chairman of this committee, espousing the views you have espoused," he added.
I especially appreciate the follow-up questions, "What Arab/Sunni nation is gonna have a ground force in Syria? What Arab/Sunni country is gonna be flying in and bombing and doing missile raids with an Arab insignia on the side of the plane? Tell me that."

Cutting through Kerry's double speak, filibustering and refusal to lay out a plan before this committee or within a classified setting, I can answer that: None, because there is no strong coalition and there is no sound plan.
