Well why would he? Since referring to ISIS as the “jay-vees” last winter, he’s spent the entire summer golfing with the rich and famous in the Hamptons or Martha’s Vineyard, attending endless fundraisers in Hollywood, drinking beer and playing pool with the Governor of Colorado, dreaming up new and unconstitutional methods to impose amnesty, and doing his best to destroy the U.S. economy by directing his EPA to wage war on reliable American energy for no other reason than to benefit his wealthy “green energy” cronies. With so much on his plate how can we expect him to have time to, you know, do his job and “defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic”? Priorities.
Governor Palin saw this coming six years ago in her RNC speech. Take it away, Tony Lee:
Six years to the day after he accepted the Democratic presidential nomination in 2008, President Barack Obama announced that he did not have a strategy to combat ISIS, which recently beheaded American photojournalist James Foley.
“I don’t want to put the cart before the horse,” Obama said of ISIS at a Thursday press conference. “We don’t have a strategy yet.”
After Obama accepted the nomination in front of Greek columns on August 28, 2008, Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin asked, “But when the cloud of rhetoric has passed, when the roar of the crowd fades away, when the stadium lights go out and those Styrofoam Greek columns are hauled back to some studio lot, when that happens, what exactly is our opponent’s plan?”
He has no plan, and today he not only announced it to ISIS, but to the Russians, the Chinese, Iran, North Korea, and every other rogue state or terrorist organization who’d like to take advantage of an America bereft of leadership. This almost makes Jimmy Carter’s foreign policy look competent in comparison. Almost.
