At U.S.-Africa summit, Joe Biden refers to ‘nation of Africa’

Joe-Biden-200x130Two relevant flashbacks, both related to the choice of vice presidential picks in 2008, both from the New York Times. First, the paper of record from Aug. 23 of that year:

Senator Barack Obama introduced Senator Joseph R. Biden Jr. as his running mate on Saturday at a boisterous rally in Springfield, Ill., a choice that strengthens the Democratic ticket’s credentials on foreign policy…. [Emphasis added]

ISIS…a creation of Obama’s doing


“But I want to see a strategy.”

- New House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy speaking about Obama’s Iraq strategy

Saying that nobody in Washington wants to send U.S. troops into Iraq right now, new House Majority leader Kevin McCarthy stressed that a military option does need to be kept on the table, but as I see it the main problem with Iraq right now is that Obama and his administration lack NOT only a clear plan on exactly what to do but any plan at all.

Sending in 300 military advisers who like before will have their hands tied behind their back in regards to anything but trying to win the ‘hearts and minds’ of the enemy is absolutely NO response…is absolutely NO plan…to help stop the forward moving incursion of ISIS…especially in light of the fact that over the past 48 hours the ISIS flag now flies over yet another four Iraqi towns as they move southeast towards Baghdad itself.

How Obama lost Iraq

Iraq’s slide back into chaos has its roots in 2011 when the last U.S. soldiers left the country.  The Obama Administration and the government of Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki had been engaged in months of negotiations in an attempt to reach a new status of forces agreement that would allow American soldiers to remain in Iraq to help support government forces.  (The Bush Administration had signed a status of forces agreement that required U.S. combat troops to leave Iraq by Dec. 31, 2011.)  When these talks failed, the stage was set for President Obama to fulfill his campaign promise to remove U.S. forces and end the war in Iraq.

Unfortunately, as pointed out by the Atlanta Conservative Examiner, it was much easier to remove U.S. troops than to end the war.  President Obama’s assumption was that American forces were the cause of the fighting in Iraq and that if American forces were removed, the war would end.  That turned out not to be the case, partly because of Iran.

Homeowner arrested after taking Biden’s advice, firing warning shotgun blast

Joe-BidenWhen asked about Joe Biden’s obvious mental impairments, former New York City mayor and GOP presidential hopeful Rudolph Giuliani said he doubted the problem was dementia. Instead, Giuliani offered this rough-and-ready diagnosis while a guest on CNBC’s “The Kudlow Report”:

I mean, this guy just isn’t bright. He’s never been bright. He isn’t bright. People think well, he just talks a little too much. Actually, he’s just not very smart.

Libs believe satire of Palin saying ‘Flight 370 ‘got stuck in heaven’

sarah palinI have to keep reminding myself that liberals are the deep thinkers in the room. Once again, they have been taken in by a satire involving their favorite target, 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, and once again they have played the “stupid” card — unwittingly on themselves. This time, the subject is Malaysia Flight 370.

Last week, The Daily Currant, which advertises itself as “the Global Satirical Newspaper of Record,” ran an item titled “Palin Wonders If Flight 370 ‘Flew Directly to Heaven.’” Here’s an excerpt:

The ‘Russian Bear’ vs. the man in ‘mom’ jeans


russia map“The referendum in Crimea was a clear violation of Ukrainian constitution and international law”

- Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s statement after Sunday’s Crimean vote

Well…well…the man who could care less about the U.S. Constitution suddenly cares about the Ukrainian constitution and international law…all while his very inaction’s helped fuel this current situation on. And now comes useless sanctions that Putin will just laugh at while calling Obama’s bluff as he sends Russian forces further into the Ukraine.

And those in Poland, Hungary, and the Czech Republic, and even those in Kazakhstan, are all now fearful they could be next.

obama-dumb1It seems Barack Obama has been spending too much time around Joe Biden, the walking, talking gaffe machine now serving his second term as vice president.

While appearing at Coral Reef High School in Florida, Obama told children to “sit down, take a load off.”  He later realized his blunder when he realized the children didn’t have any chairs to sit on.

What can we learn from the Wendy Davis story?

Wendy DavisTexas state senator and rising Democratic star Wendy Davis has admitted to having embellished the facts in her personal history. Yesterday, less than a week after poking holes in her inspiring, up-from-nowhere narrative, the Dallas Morning News reasserted its liberal mala fides by publishing an editorial titled “The Wendy Davis story.” In it the editors wrote:

The bare-bones Wendy Davis story — the one without embellishment — is sufficiently inspiring as a matrix for defying expectations. The daughter of a teenage mother and a teenage mother herself, Davis managed to beat the odds by getting a college education and Ivy League law degree, then launching a political career that’s brought her national adulation.
