Obama Can’t Tell The Right War from the Wrong War

Obama is always trying to change the subject.  When he was jockeying (like the lost jockey in Magritte’s painting) for the President’s job  he said that Bush fought the wrong war in Iraq and that he would straighten this out by getting our men killed in Afghanistan instead. 
 
Gee, I don’t know how Obama could tell the right war from the wrong war.  He was never in the armed forces.  I doubt that he even had a street fight. And both Republicans and Democrats alike wanted to go to war because we thought that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction.  Not to mention that we were in panic mode because of 9-11.
 
Now Putin takes over Crimea and people remind the president that both Palin and Romney were concerned about Russia. Romney called it a geopolitical foe.
 
Oops, Obama missed it again.  He is embarrassed that he didn’t see the dangers of Russia.  So he makes fun of it.  He covers his tracks. He bobs and weaves, “I continue to be much more concerned…with the prospect of a nuclear weapon going off in Manhattan.”
 
This reminds me of when Obama tried to protect his failing Obamacare by digressing and saying that the Republicans want to throw granny off the cliff.
 
Gee, I’m more concerned with a president who weakens our defenses and ruins our economy. I cannot endorse a President who lies and tells us that we can keep our own doctors and our health plans.
 
What does that have to do with the price of tea in China or for that matter, our debt in China?   If Obama is so worried about a nuke in Manhattan why is he busy stripping the NSA?  There has to be a balance between
government information and its spying.
 
When will Obama quit changing the subject?  A nuclear weapon in New York is secondary and about as remote as polar cap melting in Antarctica.  Global warming is a smirk on a Halloween pumpkin.
 
Crimea being the start of World War III is an immediate concern.  It is reminiscent of the execution of Archduke Ferdinand and Sophie starting WWI.
