Now that Eric Cantor has been ejected from capitol Hill, it is time for a better approach. Kevin McCarthy, symbolically would not be a good fit for House Majority leader. The overzealous power hungry politician has had his face in the mix for way to long. When Americans look at him, they associate the Republican party with bad things, like amnesty for illegals, grid lock, and special interest. This is not the persona Republicans want to present going forward. His persona is simply a detriment at this juncture.
Hillary Clinton’s foreign policy ineptitude is systemic. let me count the ways:
Hillary Clinton simply allowed the George Bush’s U.S. Iraq Status of Forces Agreement to come to fruition in 2011. As part of SOFA, Iraq should have been introduced into NATO and America should have maintained a military presence there. Instead, Hillary Clinton switched her foreign policy objectives to Afghanistan?
Americans toppled the Taliban in 2001. With the aid of the Northern Alliance, the Taliban fell quickly. For all practical purposes, we had met our objective and responded to the 911 attacks. We could have ended our ground war in Afghanistan in 2002. Next, a simple $100 million a year foreign aid would have kept terrorists out of Afghanistan. Instead, we launch into a dozen year “hearts and minds” campaign that costs trillions and allowed the poopy fields to grow waste high. Another product of our dozen year occupation was more Taliban sympathizers and the rise of the world’s largest “Narco Trafficking State” with a poppy GDP of $61 billion.
Hillary Clinton took her eyes of the ball in Iraq. She and Barack Hussein Obama allowed our blood and treasure in Iraq to go to waste, while enabling corruption in Afghanistan? It seems that they wanted Iraq to fail and their war in worthless Afghanistan to be a success. Iraq has become a Pelosi, Harry Reid, Obama, Clinton political fulfilling prophecy.
By remaining utterly lackadaisical and incompetent concerning Iraq, Hillary and Barack created the “ISIS Crisis” in Iraq. It seem that both Hillary and Barack suffer from systemic incompetence when it relates to foreign policy, and taking care of the veterans. While many of us would like to believe that she did a good job, it is becoming more and more apparent that Hillary Clinton’s tenure as SOS was ridden with incompetence, lies and deceit. We only have to look at Iraq today to arrive at this conclusion.
But then again, we can never count out Republican incompetence and their ability to dilute Hillary’s failures with their own gibberish.
Obama has stated “No Stupid shit?” Barack Hussein Obama’s lack of leadership has basically erased a decade of our soldiers blood for Iraqi Freedom… Is this the stupid shit he is talking about.
All Kennedy had to do was provide air support in Cuba and Castro Cuba would have ended right, then and there.
Should Obama not deploy Air Power in Iraq, it will be Obama’s “Bay of Pigs,” and the greatest foreign policy failure since 1939 Poland.
Harry Reid said, “The War is Lost in Iraq!”
I was a C-141C flight engineer in the U.S. Air Force Reserves. Unlike groundpounders and jarheads, I flew to every corner of the world. The world was my class room. I am a student of history and a student of the world. I have friends that served in the Air Force Reserves with over 13,000 flying hours. I was only able to achieve 4200 flying hours because I retired when the C-141 aircraft fleet was replaced by the C-17.
4200 flying hours is 8 hours a day, Monday thru Friday, excluding Saturday, Sunday and holidays for 2 full years. Meaning 2 full working years flying around the world in support of our national interest. Southern watch, Northern watch, Somalia, Rwanda, Cuban refugee relocation, Al Qaida relocation, Iraq and Afghanistan support missions. From 1978 to 1982, I fought in the Cold war as a B-52 technician. from 1987 to 2006, I was very active flying world wide and hauling soldiers and patients from and to the far reaches of the earth.
I served 18 months in Iraq hauling wounded soldiers on Medevacs.
As a child I was a dependent. My father served 20 years in SAC. In fact, 4 of my uncles served in the Air Force. Combined, we have over 130 years service. Up until my retirement in 2006, a Brodhead had served continuously in the Air Force since the 1947 National Security Act. As a child, I could tell you about every single fighter or bomber aircraft the Air Force ever had.
As an adult, I have been to pretty much every military runway on the face of the earth.
Both my father and I served during the long Cold War. My uncle flew the B-52, and I worked on it.
In 2008, when I was dabbling for a run at Congress, I suggested that Iraq become part of NATO as part of the U.S. Iraq Status of Forces Agreement. I also suggested that Ukraine remain out of NATO. In addition, I was befuddled by John McCain’s fixation with Georgia in the former Soviet Union while Obama was attempting to deconstruct Iraq.
Democrats accused Bush and Republicans of taking their eyes of the ball in Afghanistan. Of course, then Barack Hussein Obama exits Iraq ASAP to support “The surge wont work 2008 idiocy!” Then he doubles down on Afghanistan and surges there? So, after a very costly regime change in Iraq, Barack Hussein Obama and Hillary Clinton simply leave a country sitting next to 1/2 the world’s oil supply unprepared to defend itself, and then surge in a useless and remote country like Afghanistan?
Iraq is worth saving. Afghanistan is worth forgetting about.
It is time to send troops back into Iraq and fix Barack Hussein Obama and Hillary Clinton’s offensively inept and historically epic foreign policy failures. I mean if Iraq soldiers run away from a few terrorist with AK47s, how will Iraq defend itself against Iran? When we chose to deconstruct Saddam Hussein, we chose to destabilize the entire region. We now have to fix it.
As part of this military aid to rid Iraq of Isis, Iraq must become part of NATO and allow the United States to maintain a military base and rapid reaction force there. I said this in 2008, and I am saying it again.
Anyways, it is time to send in U.S. Air Power
Harry Reid Surrenders in Iraq video
Well that depends on what the meaning of is is.
Time to send in 20 C-17s with Abrams tanks
,and Special Forces.
Lets soften ISIS up with a little B-52 hospitality.
Almost 40 years ago Saigon fell as Gerald Ford and America looked on. We were too busy watching ” Happy days” and” All in the family.”
Barack Hussein Obama ran as “Meathead” in 2008. Then he reverted to Archie Bunker on perpetual war. He attacks Libya just to impress the Clinton’s and then turns into Gerald Ford on Iraq.
I served in Iraq. At the time, I thought the war was appropriate. I thought Afghanistan was a useless endeavor given the Russian and British occupation debacles. Barack Hussein Obama doubled down on the stupidity of Afghanistan.
Bush put Afghanistan on the back burner for a reason. Iraq was and is the real prize.
Afghanistan was and is a logistical nightmare with a per capita income of $30 a month, no flushing toilettes, and $61 billion in poppy fields.
So, Barack Hussein Obama will use “Air Power” to depose Gadhafi, but allow Iraq cities to fall to terrorists? Barack, this is not Saigon. If you can bomb Libya with a week’s reflection, you can put air assets into Iraq and crush Isis.
Barack Hussein Obama is taking his eye off the ball in Iraq to prove the Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi inept positions.
Barack Hussein Obama will actually let Iraq cities fall just to support a ding bat and an idiot’s positions on Iraq?
He is letting 8 years of regime change and the blood of American soldiers go to waste. He is handing Mosul to terrorist. I thought we do not negotiate with terrorists?
We all remember when George Herbert Walker Bush turned his back on Southern Iraq after Desert Storm. We all remember what happened and the Shiite slaughter. Barack Hussein Obama is repeating history. His Foreign policy borders on stupidity. Scratch that: Barack Hussein Obama’s foreign policy is stupidity at it’s finest.
Saigon did not set next to 1/2 the world’s oil supply.
It is time to send in the fighters or at least a cell of (10 ) B52s and crush ISIS.
Air Power asshole
Brian Sandoval is a studied man. In fact as an attorney that worked adoption issues and a District court judge, Sandoval has studied massive legal case loads. He has developed a strong capacity for logic and critical thinking and assessing legal argument. In fact, his resume as an attorney, state representative, district court judge, gaming commissioner, and now Nevada governor is quite formidable. Unlike Barack Hussein Obama, Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval is actually prepared to be our next president.
The national Republican party is ready for a “makeover!” Pretty much all of the Republican candidates, save Rick Perry, are just a continuation of the status quo. Many seem to simply be a joke or a gimmick and nothing America looks forward to. The national Republican stage needs a complete overhaul if we are going to beat Hillary Clinton in 2016.
Brian Sandoval must address his positions on driver’s licenses for illegals, as well as, his stance on amnesty for illegals. His current positions would be an easy target in 2016 should he run for president. Republicans will reject a Hispanic that supports amnesty for illegals. While he would endear himself to 12 million illegals, he would be rejected by 60 million conservatives.
Brian Sandoval will have to assess the “Cantor message” if he wants to run for president or even dabble in it. Should Brian Sandoval work on his immigration positions, he would bring much to the Republican stage in 2016. Then again, Sandoval could do nothing and then become an awesome vice presidential running mate. At this juncture, Brian’s positions are undefined and will have to be addressed if he chooses to run in 2016. With a few adjustments, he becomes very formidable. Presently, he would be to the left of Rick Perry on immigration issues.
I think Paul Laxalt supported Ronald Reagan’s positions on immigration. I don’t think that only cleaning sheep pens will cut it. It is an either or equation.
Many political analysts see Sandoval’s platform shortcomings and that is why they want him to take out Harry Reid. So, will Sandoval do what he is told or do what destiny has presented?
Americans have almost forgotten the start of Barack Hussein Obama’s heinously inept 2nd term.
We almost forgot the IRS. We almost forgot wiretapping the Associated Press.
We almost forgot about the NSA surveillance agenda.
Many of us will not remember Barack Hussein Obama’s relentless attacks on traditional family or his “KulturKampf!”
We may not remember the constant attacks on our 1st Amendment rights, our 2nd Amendment rights or the absconding of the 4th Amendment, but we will remember amnesty for illegals.
While Fox News and the Palin airhead fixate on Bowe Bergdahl, Benghazi and all the lies are fresh and vivid. We remember how a president lied about Benghazi and keeping our doctors. Now we will remember how Obama timed the Bowe Bergdahl
exchange for Taliban to coincide Hillary Clinton’s book debut. Hmm was that a hard choice? As we recall, Obama timed the attack on Libya with the execution of Osama Bin Laden. How cute. He blames Bush for 5 years and then his own inept foreign policy on a video.
Americans have forgotten that Barack Hussein Obama was an anti war candidate that apologized for America in Berlin.. Then, when he becomes president, he becomes a Bush protégé on steroids and starts attacking other countries. Instead of pulling out of Afghanistan, Barack Hussein Obama joined forces with Boehnerville and opted to stay another 8 years. He then slips the bill to our children.
I find it odd that Barack Hussein Obama will spend $20 billion a month protecting another country’s border 10,000 miles away while offering amnesty to 12 million illegals here in America. Obama put more effort into securing Afghanistan’s sovereignty while attempting to give America’s away.
On second thought, Americans will remember Barack Hussein Obama adding $10 trillion to the national debt in 8 years. Every year from here on out, we will remember the “$10 trillion dollar man” when we pay the interest on his debt. We will remember how Obama elevated sodomy to that of traditional marriage. We will remember how Obama believes that illegals have more right to life in this country than the beating hearts of the innocent unborn.
Except for the inept introduction of the Affordable Care Act, Obama’s entire presidency will go down in history as a fiscal failure. While many of us are starting to like Obama after 6 years of contempt, we still think he is a big government yes-man. In fact, the only thing different between Bush and Obama is prochoice, alternative energy, same sex soldiers French kissing in military chapels, and attacking the traditional family. I mean, we could not have asked for a more obedient military industrial complex ass kisser Bush clone than Barack Hussein Obama.
Should he choose to ram amnesty down America’s throat, there will be war. It wont be an “Act of Love”….. Obama should accept the “Cantor message” and simply be the lame duck that his presidency has become.
America is basically sick of Boehner, Cantor and McCarthy. We are sick of looking at McCarthy’s face and listening to his scripted BS diatribe. Should McCarthy become House majority leader, it will be bad for America.
Americans want to move on from Iraq and Afghanistan. Kevin McCarthy is a constant reminder that Republicans have added over $12 trillion to the national debt since Bill Clinton. Under Boehner, Cantor and McCarthy, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan will end up costing our children $6 trillion. The VA budget has ballooned from $20 billion to $170 billion with no end in sight. Boehner, Cantor and McCarthy proactively deployed our patriot troops into combat zones up to 10 times in a dozen years. Then they have the inept audacity to blame Barack Hussein Obama solely for the epidemic of PTSD cases and the VA’s massive patient load. This Republican is calling foul. We can no longer respect the current status quo in Washington DC. By placing blame for the abuse of our soldiers on others, they have lost all credibility.
Kevin McCarthy is not good for the Republican brand. In fact, he symbolizes the NSA, perpetual war and the rise of a bloated police state. It is time for America’s renewal and Kevin McCarthy is not part of that vision. McCarthy has paraded over trillions in unnecessary spending. If he was a CEO of a company, he would have been fired long ago. It is time to censure this egomaniac and vote him out of office. McCarthy is all about McCarthy. He thinks of himself before America. He needs to be removed from office.
McCarthy’s season of war mongering is over. It is time to turn.
McCarthy the war mongering egomaniac
