But he is not the worst. Now that Barack Obama has had to make some tough calls militarily, he has botched every single one of them. He has to be considered the dumbest CIC ever. He vowed to close Guantanamo Bay in Cuba, blustering on the campaign trail that this torture chamber was giving a black eye to the U.S. and was a recruiting tool for al Qaeda. Turns out, Obama had to eat every one of these stupid remarks. Gitmo will remain open for the foreseeable future. Duh. Where else are you going to detain unlawful combatants, picked up on the battlefield, with no uniforms, shooting at Americans while hiding behind women and children? If justice were served, each and every one of them would be lined up against a wall and shot at dawn, but that's a topic for a different time and place. For now, Gitmo is perfectly suited for detaining these animals. And it only took Obama three years to figure that one out, and you just can't get any dumber than this guy.
We're talking about the dumbest CIC ever. Barack Obama was told by his generals that an additional 80,000 boots on the ground were needed in Afghanistan or the U.S. would start to suffer casualties from lack of ground strength (and for dumb ol' Barry, that means 40,000 troops wearing a pair of boots each, as I am sure math was never his forte at Harvard). It took him months and months to do something, and he came up with a measly 25,000 troops. After 4 months of dithering.
And now Libya. This situation is simply delicious for all of those 'I told you so' types (like me) that foresaw this very situation. When Barack was faced with a military crisis, we all knew he would fold like a cheap deck chair: look at his performance to date with all of the turmoil in the Middle East. I would give him an F. He has not had one single action that anybody would call decisive, much less effective. He has voted 'present' on all of his calls as Commander in Chief. That may have worked in his South side Chicago district, but we can all see that this tactic of punting on hard decisions does not work at all in the Oval Office.
And Libya is great to point this out. It has virtually no impact on American security, and its oil production is a puny 2% of the world's total supply, and watching these tribal savages kill each other is irrelevant to American security. Let them destroy each other, it is no skin off of any U.S. nose. But watching Obama flounder around like a child playing 'army:' priceless.
He has set the bar very, VERY low for future Commander in Chief's, and I just can't see America voting in anyone with credentials approaching Obama's in the future. We see what we get when we elect a coward who votes 'present' when tough choices are called for.
The dumbest CIC ever. Barack Hussein Obama.
