I suppose it’s laudable of Barack Obama to actually show up for work, much less offer a strategy. But as he wrapped up his meandering attempt to convince the world that he’s super serious this time, I couldn’t help but think two things: “Welcome to the varsity, ISIS” and “Man, I could have watched ‘World War Z’ on Netflix.”
President Barack Obama strode to the podium Aug. 28 to announce that “We don’t have a strategy yet” for responding to ISIS’s cancer-like spread across the Mideast. That’s the first time I can remember in which Obama was flat-out honest with the world. The poor fellow finally admitted that he’s not up to the task.
Oh, how I loathe the idea of suing President Obama. When dealing with a self-styled despot of such low character, a mere lawsuit just seems too small. I say it’s high time Congress goes old school on the White House: Drag Obama and his law-flouting minions onto the mat for a full-on, prison-yard beatdown.

Images of government agents assaulting nonviolent civilians are hardly new. Despite America’s history of serving as a beacon of liberty in a world darkened by liberty, we’ve had some trouble keeping the lights on. And it appears to be getting progressively worse.
In the fall of 1988, St. Andrew’s School headmaster Jon O’Brien announced that our campus had been cast in the role of “Welton Academy” in a film titled “Dead Poets Society,” and that the star of the movie would be none other than Robin Williams. That was the start of an extraordinary experience.
Say what you want about the Israelis, but they’re not officially dedicated to the elimination of an entire country. You can’t say that about Hamas. In fact, the elimination of Israel is considered a “state” priority.
Ben Crystal examines the latest Democratic attempt to “prove” that Republicans hate poor people, or create poor people, or are mean to poor people, or something to that effect.
Just imagine having to deal with multiple crises while simultaneously trying to fix your short game. No wonder President Barack Obama looks tired. Lucky for him, he’s got another vacation coming up soon. We need Obama to get his rest. Otherwise, he might do something stupid.
The ironically named Josh Earnest served as former White House press secretary Jay Carney’s top deputy prior to replacing Lil’ Jay, so the only way he could not have known what awaited him would involve a lot more “choom” than Obama pocketed during his recent stop-flop-and-photo-op in Colorado.
During a sit down with ABC News in London, Attorney General Eric Holder claimed: “There’s a certain level of vehemence, it seems to me, that is directed at me, directed at the President… There’s a certain racial component to this… I don’t think this is a main driver, but for some there is a racial animus.”
Over the course of the weekend, the Windy City jumped back into the headlines with another round of manslaughter amid the merriment. Eighty-two people ended up on the business end of the proverbial bullet; 14 of them didn’t survive the encounter.
Despite our professed desire to “stick it to the man,” Americans are, by and large, a fairly placid lot. Yet our government has developed an ugly tendency to treat us like we’re criminals. John Q. Public is the one who gets the second look from Uncle Sam.
