…this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal; this was the moment when we ended a war and secured our nation and restored our image as the last, best hope on Earth. – Democratic Presidential Candiate Barack Hussein Obama’s Nomination Speech at the 2008 Democratic Convention, St. Paul, Minnesota
That moment never came.
Obama overestimated himself.
Foxnews.com reports that
President Obama on Sunday acknowledged that his efforts to help resolve the Syria crisis have so far failed but defended his strategy and dismissed assertions that Russian President Vladimir Putin is now the dominant world leader.
“I didn’t say it was going to be done in a year,” Obama said in a CBS “60 Minutes” interview. “Syria has been a difficult problem for the entire world community. … What we have not been able to do so far — and I’m the first to acknowledge this — is to change the dynamic inside of Syria.”
The president was confronted about several unsuccessful effort in Syria, ravaged by a four-year-long civil war and now by the Islamic State terror group.
Obama also said he had no knowledge that Hillary Clinton, as his secretary of state, used a private server and email accounts to conduct official business.
He acknowledge that the arrangement resulted in security breaches but said he didn’t think she attempted to hide information and declined to address the question of whether she could be prosecuted under his administration.
Obama also acknowledged that Donald Trump has tapped into voters’ dissatisfaction to lead the Republican presidential field and that he has so far run a dynamic campaign but suggested that Trump wouldn’t win the party nomination.
Still, the biggest questions and answers focused on the Putin and the Middle East, specifically the failed, $500 million effort to train and equip a moderate opposition to fight the Islamic State, or ISIL.
The administration ended the program last week, following a report by the U.S. military that efforts to train as many as 5,000 rebels had only done so for about 50 and now only four or five remain.
“There’s no doubt that it did not work,” said Obama, while acknowledging the he was “skeptical” about the plan from the beginning and that he was willing to try several options.
He also said that training Syrians to defeat the Islamic State will be difficult as long as the regime of President Bashar Assad remains in power.
Obama also refused to accept the notion that Putin has challenged his leadership and assertion last year that America is an “indispensable nation.”
“If you think that running your economy into the ground and having to send troops in, in order to prop up your only ally is leadership, then we’ve got a different definition of leadership,” said Obama, referring to Putin’s efforts in Ukraine.
“My definition of leadership would be leading on climate change. … My definition of leadership is mobilizing the entire world community to make sure that Iran doesn’t get a nuclear weapon. And with respect to the Middle East, we’ve got a 60 country coalition that isn’t suddenly lining up around Russia’s strategy. To the contrary, they are arguing that, in fact, that strategy will not work.”
Oblivious… Thy name is Barack Hussein Obama.
With the world, as we know it, at the brink of a war which could destroy it, and with his Foreign Policy Efforts of the last 7 years having failed spectacularly, Barack Hussein Obama continues to have the lack of self-awareness to insist that he is not a failure and that Vladimir Putin is not showing him to be a spineless jellyfish, and not a world leader at all.
Who does he think that he is fooling?
Certainly not the innocent Christians whom ISIS has been beheading all of this time, nor even the innocent Muslims whose cities are being overrun, their priceless artifacts which they held, destroyed for the sake of barbarism.
He’s certainly not fooling the citizens of the United States of America, because his popularity numbers remain abysmal.
So therefore, the only one whom Barack Hussein Obama is fooling, as himself.
Now, when you are an average American, like you and me, fooling yourself usually only endangers you. However, in the case of United States of America President Barack Hussein Obama, his lack of self-awareness awareness and his self- delusion, endangers the stability of the whole wide world, beginning with the Mideast, and it leaves wide open the threat of nuclear annihilation for America and our allies, including Israel.
The arrogant stupidity of staking his legacy on being able to deliver something that is way above his pay grade, like attempting to control the Earth’s Climate, is so stupid, that I cannot find the words to accurately describe it.
While Obama is worrying about the effect of plastic water bottles on the earth, Iran continues to build a nuclear weapons which will lead to America’s annihilation.
While Obama is worrying about the Polar Bear, the Russian Bear is doing everything he can to make Obama look like the spineless weakling, which we already knew that he was, and in the meantime, possibly cut off America’s supply of oil from the Middle East.
If that 60 Minutes Interview last night did not scare the snot out of you, and make you realize what a self-absorbed Lightweight that Barack Hussein Obama truly is…you weren’t paying attention.
Until He Comes,
