On October 3-4, 1993 US troops, primarily Special Operations Detachment Delta, 3d Battalion 75th Infantry (Ranger), and elements of 10th Mountain Division fought an epic battle in the streets of Mogadishu. A military defeat that was transformed into a political defeat and a root cause of 9/11/2001. As the feckless Obama regime continues its maladministration, we may see history replay itself.
Three weeks after the US consulate in Benghazi was sacked, classified documents are still scattered about and no effort made to collect them. This follows reports that Libyans who have information about the attack have not been interviewed and Clinton has said no report will be made until after the elections. The regime clearly wants the Benghazi event swept down the memory hole.
When Barack Obama became president, President George Bush handed him a victory in Iraq on the proverbial silver platter. Since that time our gains in Iraq have been frittered away through epic incompetence and an unreasoning hostility by Obama towards the idea of an American victory. As a result we stand on the edge of a strategic defeat which makes the lives lost their not only cut short but wasted.
The Obama campaign working through the quisling Catholyc group “Catholics for Obama” is conducting an Ohio push poll based on Mitt Romney’s religion. It underscores the growing desperation of a regime that knows no law or restraint.
This Obama campaign ecard is extraordinary on a lot of levels. First, is the idea that a mother should continue to pay for her daughter’s birth control after reaching adulthood. Secondly, how could you possibly find the time to use $18,000 in birth control products.
In their haste to kowtow to a bevy of Third World thugs, the Obama regime has decided to toss the First Amendment under the bus. Surprisingly, major voices on the American left have also decided that free speech is way overrated.
Last week the Bureau of Labor Statistics released a disingenuous report claiming that and additionsl 386,000 jobs had been created this year which boosted the Obama regime’s job creation record into positive territory. This report ignores increases population increases and other factors which indicate a fairer judgment is that about 10 million jobs have vanished under the regime.
In Florida, America’s Rain Man, Joe Biden, promised seniors that Obamacare would provide for free a colonoscopy based on a “feeling they had” and not on medical need. In doing this, and sanctioning the overuse of a procedure that is considered to be one of the most overused Medicare procedures, Biden demonstrated what is wrong with Medicare.
Glenn Kessler, notorious Obama fellatisto, awards Marc Thiessen “three Pinocchios” for reporting that Obama has attended his daily intelligence briefing less than half the time despite the claim being true. For this reprise of his infamous “true but false” finding on the Romney campaign, Kessler wins yet another Quad-Headie Award for denseness and duplicity in fact checking.
Yet another Recovery Summer ends under the pathetic Obama regime and we find employment down, labor force participation down, incomes down, production down, and GDP down. The only up is food stamp recipients and college loan defaults. And the regime and its media enablers can only tout cargo cult economics.
Yesterday Barack Obama unveiled his NewSpeak “economic patriotism” campaign. Far from developing a healthy middle class Obama’s economic plan has developed the largest dependency class this country has ever seen and what he proposes is more of the cargo cult economics that has gotten us into this predicament.
In two short weeks the Obama administration’s permuations of what happened in Benghazi on September 11, 2012 have been numerous. Now it appears the administration knew all along that the Benghazi consulate was targeted by a terrorist group and not a mob response to a movie that probably hasn’t been made. Now Republicans in the Senate and House are demanding answers. Fat chance they’ll get any.
