    For a while now I have been wondering what sort of president historians will label Barack Obama in regards to the nightmare mish-mash of conflicting results his foreign policy has become under first Hillary Clinton and then John Kerry; bearing in mind that Barack is notorious as a paranoid-inclined micro-manager of the worst sort among bosses; and that the screw-ups of his two different Secretaries of State are therefore really Barack Obama's screw-ups.

    I rather thought that the bold conflict between Barack's stated intentions and the generally awful results of his foreign policy projects would leave historians scratching their heads even years from now, with some concluding that he was simply just that much of a well-meaning but clueless and utterly incompetent bonehead while others would decide that for some unknown and unknowable reason he secretly wanted to promote conflicts in general in the middle-east and make Al-Qaeda a much stronger international-in-scope organization when all was said and done.

    So then this morning I find this article that sort of confirms my assessment of this president, his foreign policy bad habits, and that -- yes indeed -- it IS likely to puzzle the crud out of historians tackling the problem of assessing the foreign policy train wreck of his two terms in office as president.

    The part I selected begins just after pointing out that as of yesterday the result of Barack Obama's involvement in the Syrian war -- and he is neck-deep involved and sinking fast -- has resulted in promoting such rebel-created horrible nightmare scenarios inside Syria as to actually disgust an Al-Qaeda faction to the extent that they have pulled out of Syria in moral outrage over what the Obama-backed AND supplied rebels have been doing.

    You can read the entire article here: http://finance.townhall.com/columni...ma-for-peace-brings-us-war-n1789144/page/full But here's enough to get you started:

    He isn't much of a real leader, and I don't think he does much of anything but handle PR crises for himself, and not much else, just running out and reading canned speeches whenever something blows up, but in any case, if his policies have the Islamo-vermin at each others throats and killing each other by the thousands for a change instead of 'everybody else', that's a success, not a failure. Whether or not he did this on purpose, which I doubt, is another topic, but if he did indeed deliberately work for this then he gets well deserved kudos for it; one of the few bright spots in his entire Presidency.

    I never thought I'd see a worse president than Jummy Carter.

    Hussein Obama proved me wrong.

    But the free stuff crowd likes him.

    But the article points out that Obama's policies have actually made Al-Qaeda both significantly larger and stronger and just might ultimately lead to the next World War . . . which will inevitably such the U.S. into it. If that happens then the draft will be reinstated and at that point all those FORMER pro-Obama fanatical fans will be hightailing it to the Canadian border in droves. Interesting, eh?

    Here's another bit of irony. Back in 2008 I was pointing out to fanatical Obama supporters that considering the nature of his political background in regards to having been mentored by outright Socialists and Marxists and his dearth of meaningful experience at the national level that far from turning out to be their hoped for leftwing Political Messiah (which is what most of them REALLY thought they were getting by voting for Barack regardless of their loud claims to the contrary) he would most likely turn out to be nothing more when all was said and done than the sad sack spiritual political equivalent of Jimmy Carter's ideological son.

    So, ahem! Say now all you formerly foam at the brain pan Obama supporters . . . can you hear me now? Inquiring minds want to know.

    Look we get it. You hate Obama for reasons that are your own and I respect your thoughts and opinions. However, he will be president for 2 more years.

    He was painfully slow reacting to Libya, and costed lots of lives as a result there of not putting in a no-fly zone much earlier. He is looking weak on this so far, but its early days. Perhaps he is busy making funny videos in the white house to be kew1.
