The Vietnamization of Iraq – The Narcissistic Legacy of Barack Obama
A president’s job is tough. And that goes for any president. Aside from being in charge of an organization that employs millions of people and is responsible for the expenditure of trillions of dollars, he is the Commander in Chief. And it is in that area that no doubt weighs most heavily on presidential shoulders. The decision to send young men into battle where you | Read More »

Some unsolicited advice to Barack Obama on Syria
What happens when a majority of voters elect an unqualified hack as the head of state? Lots of bad choices and lots of bad outcomes. After watching Barack Obama make mistakes on the world stage for five years you might have thought he was beginning to figure out what he was doing. Unfortunately, you’d be wrong. He’s as clueless as ever… First he suggests (correctly) | Read More »

Barack Obama and Benghazi: What is the body count that separates the president from the candidate?
There have been three different parts to the Benghazi story. Not surprisingly, Barack Obama has managed to fail spectacularly in all three. The first aspect of this failure has to do with the run-up to September 11th. Given terrorist’s general penchant for anniversaries and the fact that September 11th is such a trophy date for them, the Obama administration should have had every American embassy | Read More »
Rick Perry for Commander in Chief
As I have stated before, I am a full-spectrum conservative. I believe in common-sense, Constitutional conservatism based on the “three-legged stool” – fiscal, social, and national defense conservatism. All three of those legs are important, but my heart is especially with the national defense concerns. Many long time Redstate readers know me from the posts I started writing on my first deployment. Some of you | Read More »
Liberal News and Dems Bought a “Pig in a Poke”
We all know the grass is not greener on the other side – everyone knows that with the exceptions of the Liberal News Media and Democrats on the Hill. They jumped for the greener pastures because they thought they’d discovered their long lost treasure back in 2008. They were sure that this person some call Obama was the answer to their prayers. They took an | Read More »
Another Memorial Day.
There’s not much I can contribute to the many flowery tributes to our fallen heroes that we saw and heard yesterday. There are just not enough superlatives. On this day that we set aside in remembrance of our war dead, I’m really gratified to see the huge amount of tribute and attention being given to our living military men and women… and their families. We | Read More »
Obama Doesn’t Lead And Cannot Define Libya
Before anyone who reads this comes to the conclusion that I am criticizing the decision to go after Qaddafi and quell the attacks on innocent civilians he has undertaken to try and hold onto power, then draw another conclusion. Qaddafi is a thug who should be taken out and taken out quickly for the betterment of the Libyan people and the world. Since the late | Read More »

McChrystal resignation shows Obama weakness
Many pundits have been pounding the theme that Obama must fire General Stan McChrystal to avoid looking weak. They are dead wrong. The firing of McChrystal shows much greater weakness than keeping him would. It was an unjust action, and there is nothing weaker as a leader than taking unjust action to avoid being seen as weak.

Wanted; a Commander in Chief
Sorely missing our previous one about now As a military person, there’s a hole in my heart where a President used to be. I didn’t agree with George W. Bush politically all the time (enough to vote for him twice), but one thing I did agree with; he did his best for his troops. Make the argument, if you will, that troops in Iraq were | Read More »
