Obama Thinks That Ideas Are More Powerful Than Guns

“Ideologies are not defeated with guns; they’re defeated by better ideas.” Can you believe that Obama paid a speech writer to come up with this simple-minded, erroneous, counterproductive idea?

Rub the top of an amputated head in the sand in Iraq and tell the dead that if he came up with a “better idea” he would not be decapitated.

What does Obama think are better ideas for Isis?  Does he expect them to go to school and study irrigation or to go against their religion and not honor-kill their daughters, no longer execute apostates and stop throwing fags off buildings?

Does he expect an American soldier to walk up to an Isis warrior who is shooting a woman in the face and whip out his college diploma while telling him that education is mightier than the gun?  Is he the wizard in the Wizard of Oz?

Obama conquered the American electorate with his clichéd rhetoric.  He should not expect that he will conquer ISIS with the same fraudulent use of weak words and trite ideas.
