Obama's ISIS "No Strategy" Dust-Up

link

Complete nonsense.

1. People bitch about politicians bullshitting them, then they bitch about it when they're honest.

2. We didn't have a strategy. We shouldn't have had a strategy. A president with a prefabricated strategy is a crap president. George Bush had a strategy ready-made after 9/11, because he already knew what he wanted to do anyway, and used 9/11 as a pretext.

3. It was good to be honest about it. And ISIS gained nothing from that.

4. The lunatics in the fever swamps are going to whine and shriek no matter what Obama says. He could have announced that we'd selectively vaporized every member of ISIS with a new super-weapon of his own devising, and the GOP would still have bitched about it. If Obama walked on water, the GOP talking points would be "Berry can't swim"...  So the GOP should be ignored.

5. Obama's exactly the president I want: you know he's always going to do something reasonable. When Bush was president, I woke up every  morning afraid to open the Washington Post, afraid to see what knew outrage had been perpetrated against minimal rationality and common sense. We don't have to worry about that anymore.

Anyway: while Obama is trying to solve big problems, CNN and company whine about "optics" like a bunch of three-year-olds.

What utter nonsense.
