Barack Obama: The New George W. Bush

2001 Bush and 2014 Obama UN speeches

Barack Obama’s speech at the UN was a repeat of the one George W. Bush gave 13 years ago. Obama even wore the same colored suit, shirt and tie!

Sept 25, 2014 The Kelly Files – The War on Terror: Then and Now < THIS ONE IS REALLY GOOD!

In 2008, I was 100% convinced that when push came to shove, President Obama would put politics and his own backside ahead of national security. I have seen nothing he’s done during his administration to change my opinion.

Saluting and job training

When asked what he missed about being president, George W. Bush replied, “I do miss saluting men and women who volunteered to defend our nation during war. Many are coming home and are preparing for new missions as civilians, and I intend to salute these men and women for the rest of my life.”  Bush’s library is also spearheading a program to help unemployed veterans learn new skills.

Bias is just as much what isn’t reported as what is

2014_09 04 GALLUP BHO approval poll

Obama job approval is almost identical to what Bush’s was at this point in his presidency in September 2006. In 2006, this was news. Now? Not so much.

This bias extends to the media’s own polls.

From Junior Varsity to Evil Cancer in just SEVEN MONTHS?

Well, only according to President Unicorn, who told us over and over and over that the death of Osama bin Laden and removal of U.S. troops from Iraq meant that Bush’s “stupid” Global War on Terror was over, Over, OVER.

Those of us who have been PAYING ATTENTION have known disaster was inevitable … just like we know the economy is headed for a great big, possibly fatal crash because of the Obamacrats’ out-of-control spending. But that’s another story.

Today, I want to share the 2014 Junior Varsity to Evil Cancer timeline.

  • On January 27, 2014, President Obama dismissed al-Qaeda inspired groups (like ISIS) as nothing more than junior varsity wannabes.

The analogy we use around here sometimes, and I think is accurate, is if a jayvee team puts on Lakers uniforms that doesn’t make them Kobe Bryant. … I think there is a distinction between the capacity and reach of a bin Laden and a network that is actively planning major terrorist plots against the homeland versus jihadists who are engaged in various local power struggles and disputes, often sectarian,” Obama said in an interview with The New Yorker.

  • On January 28, 2014, Obama said we needed to get off a “permanent war footing.”

Four Months Later …

  • On May 28, 2014, Obama had to admit that, oopsie, these “jayvee” groups had indeed become Kobe Bryant.

As the Syrian civil war spills across borders, the capacity of battle-hardened extremist groups to come after us only increases,” Obama said at West Point. “And the need for a new strategy reflects the fact that today’s principal threat no longer comes from a centralized al Qaeda leadership. Instead it comes from decentralized al Qaeda affiliates and extremists, many with agendas focused in the countries where they operate.

  • On June 24, 2014, after ISIS captured Mosul, Iraq, SecState Kerry admitted this came as a big surprise to the Obama Administration.

We don’t have people embedded in those [Iraqi] units, and so obviously nobody knew that,” Kerry said on Fox News.

Yes, well, that’s what happens when President Ostrich insists we all play Let’s Pretend GWOT Is Over.

  • On July 23, 2014, an Obama State Department official said ISIS is a “full-blown army … worse than al Qaeda.”

It is al Qaeda in its doctrine, ambition and, increasingly, in its threat to U.S. interests. … In fact, it is worse than al Qaeda,” McGurk told the House Armed Services Committee. “[ISIS] is no longer simply a terrorist organization. It is now a full-blown army seeking to establish a self-governing state through the Tigris and Euphrates valley in what is now Syria and Iraq.”

  • On August 8, 2014, Obama said the U.S. has a “strategic interest” in stopping them.

We do have a strategic interest in pushing back ISIL. We’re not going to let them create some caliphate through Syria and Iraq, but we can only do that if we know that we’ve got partners on the ground who are capable of filling the void,” Obama told The New York Times. (IS, ISIS, and ISIL are all the same group.)

These “partners on the ground” would be the coalition Bush assembled for his “stupid” war …

Those former allies that Obama has systematically ignored and disrespected since Bush retired? Those partners that Obama left hanging when he pulled our troops out so he could do his “I killed Osama” end zone dance again and again?

  • On August 20, 2014, after ISIS beheaded U.S. journalist James Foley, Obama called the group a “cancer” and SecState Kerry called them “evil.”

Junior Varsity to Evil Cancer in just seven months?!

Isn’t this like a doctor who ignored your symptoms until they had grown into a Stage 4 malignancy?

  • August 21, 2014: Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel says ISIS is “beyond anything that we’ve seen”

“ISIL is as sophisticated and well-funded as any group that we have seen. They’re beyond just a terrorist group. They marry ideology, a sophistication of strategic and tactical military prowess. They are tremendously well funded. This is beyond anything that we’ve seen. So we must prepare for everything. And the only way you do that is that you take a cold, steely, hard look at it and … get ready.”

Oh, right. “Cold, steely, hard” and “prepare for everything” … you mean, like how BUSH did it?

Captain Zero strikes again

On August 31, 2010, President Obama announced the end of combat operations in Iraq, saying this had been his “pledge to the American people as a candidate for this office” and that it was “what we’ve done.” American troops remained in an advisory capacity to assist the Iraqis in assuming security of their own nation.

On October 21, 2011, President Obama announced that all remaining American troops would be shortly leaving Iraq. “As a candidate for President, I pledged to bring the war in Iraq to a responsible end. … After taking office, I announced a new strategy that would end our combat mission in Iraq and remove all of our troops by the end of 2011. … Iraqi Prime Minister Maliki and I are in full agreement about how to move forward.”

2012_11 05 Obama promise to end war, ended it

This morning, President Obama was asked if he regretted pulling the remaining U.S. troops from Iraq in 2011.  He said it wasn’t his decision to do so!  BUSH negotiated the SOFA draw down and MALIKI had not wanted any Americans to stay in Iraq!

2014_08 09 Obama blaming Bush Maliki

But on October 21, 2011, the New York Times had reported that American military officials were dismayed by the complete withdrawal of forces from Iraq, saying the Iraqi’s security was still too fragile to endure without an American military presence. They said that the Bush administration had negotiated the Status of Forces Agreement (SOFA) as a symbolic gesture to help Iraq establish itself as a sovereign nation but that had always been an understanding that a sizable American force would actually stay in Iraq beyond that date.

If Obama had wanted our forces to stay in Iraq, he could’ve made it happen. Now that the country’s gone to hell, he suddenly doesn’t remember that the military warned him this could happen or that he repeatedly boasted about and took full credit for the removal of every last one of our troops from a still fragile Iraq.

What a schmuck.
