President Obama is Constantly Underestimating Everything


Obama said that America failed to recognize the threat posed by Islamic State terrorists.  He then included that we mistakenly relied on the hapless Iraqi army to combat them.

Both are lies.  We didn’t fail to recognize the threat, but Obama purposely denied the threat because he didn’t want to be considered a war president and he didn’t want to admit the terrorists were strengthening when he had announced that he had defeated al-Qaeda.  Also the hapless Iraqi army was a result of his pulling out of Iraq and not leaving anyone to support the army.

He then plainly tells his third lie and tries to blame all his failures on Clapper, “Jim Clapper has acknowledged that I think they underestimated…what had been taking place in Syria.”  Obama throws Clapper under the bus with the injured who no longer have their healthcare.

Obama misleads again, “These are barbarians.  They intend to kill us.  And if we don’t destroy them first, we’re gonna pay the price.”  Brave words.  But how are we going to destroy them when Obama still refuses to put boots on the ground?

Obama is some community organizer.  He is rounding us up for our deaths.
