War, Credibility and Trouble at Home

President Obama's credibility with his base has been slipping steadily and he's been increasingly relying on the skin tone that he inherited from his father to bridge the gap.

Michael Moore said this of Obama's legacy: "When the history is written of this era, this is how you’ll be remembered: 'He was the first black president.' Okay, not a bad accomplishment, but that's it. That's it, Mr. Obama."

Now, he's trying to dredge up some semblance of credibility as he moves to becoming a "wartime president" and sends troops off to fight the not-Islamic hoard in a not-war. I'm sure that President Obama, a closet Muslim, feels that striking fellow Muslims is somehow wrong. It's easier for him to declare that they are not really Muslims. And if they somehow convince people that they are, they're not as cool of a Muslim as Barack Hussein is - because he works very hard at being cool.

Obama the coward is trying to butch up and show people that he can be tough on radical islam, not just on fellow Americans who disagree with his politics (IRS Scandal). Thus he's characterizing ISIS as a regional threat in the Middle East. No need to look at the mosques in the USA for bad actors. Possibly because that would mean that the FBI and others would start scrutinizing his friends. Now THAT could be embarrassing.

And Jon Stewart has his fun with Barack as well.
