|President Obama's weakness|
leads to a heated 60 Minutes .
Who would have known that when you need a teleprompter on hand , you then realize that you don't have it with you when you are getting a TV interview . Such a case with President Obama. President Obama was grilled on TV by the liberal media . President Barack Obama exchanged testy words with "60 Minutes" correspondent Steve Kroft on Sunday over Russian President Vladmir Putin and the Syrian conflict.Steve Kroft's handling of his "60 Minutes" interview of President Obama has drawn high marks from his media peers — much higher than those awarded to the commander in chief. (1)>> I often wonder did the liberal media wake up all of a sudden ? He is defensive and has absolutely no answers to tough yet very legitimate questions. He is exposed for the empty suit that he always has been.But it was Kroft's insistence that Obama explain his administration's plans for dealing with the brutal and (2)>> deadly civil war in Syria, which has claimed the lives of more than 200,000 people, and displaced thousands more, that seemingly drew the most media commentary. Many said Obama appeared to be "irritated" and curt during that exchange. What struck me most in the interview
was when Obama blamed Putin for the failing economy of Russia, as if the US economy is exemplary under Obama. Everything Obama said on 60 Minutes was choppy and vary confusing . I had a hard time trying to make my self stay calm while listening to him. When asked about the effectiveness of his administration's strategy in the ongoing Syrian civil war, a defensive Obama admitted he was initially skeptical about training and arming moderate rebels against Syrian President Bashar al Assad -- a $580 million program the Pentagon pulled after generating only 60 trained fighters instead of the expected 5,400. Obama is
getting totally used and pwned in Syria. He has had the CIA there for the sole purpose of unseating Assad with no jurisdiction to do it.Now, the Syrian government invites Putin in to kill terrorists, and we complain???We are a complete laughing stock, and our Saudi friends are not happy. We know we have crazy leaders in our American system . You can't blame Mr. Obama being so flip flopped , Obama had long ago suggested Invading Syria to remove Assad and push back Isis. The GOP Congress threatened to impeach him if he did. So he backed off. Any perceived failure is strictly on the GOP's shoulders. They have obstructed everything he's tried to do for 7 years now. Obama's foreign policy has led to a direct face off with Russia in Syria and has put the United States in jeopardy of going to war with Russia. If war does ensue the devastation will be enormous.It's clear Putin has drawn the line on Obama and there's no possibility Putin will back down.Obama owns this perilous situation and should be condemned for.
|I am in shock . Obama made|
no "sense" ?
|And no straight answer ....|
NOTES AND COMMENTS:
(1)>>the liberal media wake up all of a sudden ? As far as the "political" wake up call that honor goes to Donald Trump. Here is what Mr. Trump said that I agree with : "Now they're supposedly hitting ISIS, which is a positive thing," Trump said Tuesday on CNN's "New Day," referring to Russian airstrikes against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (IS). “We just get bogged down in the Middle East and Russia will get bogged down in the Middle East," Trump added.Donald Trump wants to flip the U.S. strategy against ISIL on its head, drawing down the America's involvement in fighting the militant group in Syria in favor of a greater Russian presence.While most of his fellow Republican presidential hopefuls are calling for a bigger military effort to destroy the group, Trump said the U.S. should reduce its already small footprint in Syria. And in Iraq, Trump said he would be willing to send round forces to fight the radical militant group.Donald Trump wants to flip the U.S. strategy against ISIL on its head, drawing down the America's involvement in fighting the militant group in Syria in favor of a greater Russian presence.While most of his fellow Republican presidential hopefuls are calling for a bigger military effort to destroy the group, Trump said the U.S. should reduce its already small footprint in Syria. And in Iraq, Trump said he would be willing to send round forces to fight the radical militant group."Now let me just say this: ISIL in Syria, (Syrian President Bashar el) Assad in Syria, Assad and ISIS are mortal enemies. We go in to fight ISIL. Why aren't we letting ISIS go and fight Assad and then we pick up the remnants?" Trump said in a "60 Minutes" interview that aired Sunday on CBS.Alternatively, the GOP front-runner said the U.S. should let Russia take the lead in battling ISIL in Syria, where the Russian government is allied with the Assad regime."Russia wants to get rid of ISIL. We want to get rid of ISIL. Maybe let Russia do it. Let them get rid of ISIL. What the hell do we care?" Trump said. (2)>> deadly civil war in Syria. Netanyahu started all of this you realize? Wiki leaks showed that in 2006, the US was supposed to create turmoil in Syria for regime change and/or remove Assad so a puppet could be inserted. ISIS is "our" proxy army now as Assad could not be deposed as quickly as they envisioned. Now enter Russia, who is serious about removing ISIL and getting Assad back in shape to run his country, and notice Netanyahu is frantically running around meeting with Putin trying to put a strop to this. AIPAC is also busy here turning public opinion against Putin. It's amazing really.The United States is at war in Syria. An unauthorized war at the direction of Obama. There have been thousands of American fighter bomber attacks in Syria and hundreds of American missile attacks launched into Syria. Who the hell is Obama to decide that the duly elected president of a sovereign country has to be removed from office and makes an unauthorized war to bring about the removal.Obama doesn't have any lawful authority at all to make war in Syria.
