Rahm Emanuel, the President’s former Chief of Staff is known for, “You never let a serious crisis go to waste”.
With all the outside agitators showing up in Ferguson, one must naturally assume Obama is using this “crisis” to divert attention from his failed foreign policy. I believe ISIS is what it has become as a direct result of Obama’s ‘lead from behind” doctrine.
My explanation of the Crisis-N-Chief’s “lead from behind” doctrine:
Hide and wait until it is over, then –
Take credit for success.
Trot off to the next fund-raising event and surround yourself with mainstream media types and supporters who never have an opportunity to ask difficult to answer questions, even if they had the capacity to formulate a coherent question.
Make sure all leadership positions in your administration are populated with Socialist ideologues who promote your anti-American agenda.
– or –
Blame others for failure!
Show up after the dust settles and claim you just found out about it on TV.
Make your well rehearsed statement about bringing those responsible to justice, then leave town for another fund-raiser.
The American people can’t hold you responsible for things that happen in places like Syria. They were told not to cross your red line. That should have been enough.
Did the President’s lead from behind foreign policy fail miserably in Libya, Iraq and Syria?
Was it not Obama’s lead from behind incompetence and inattention that led to the ISIS crisis?
Once again…the Obama machine finds (or manufacture) a crisis, this time in Ferguson to hide behind.
It seems to have worked again…
Who in the media is talking about the mass influx of illegal aliens across our southern border? Who in the media is talking about Israel’s fight for survival? Who in the media is talking about anything but the media-hyped crisis in Ferguson?
Benjamin Franklin said,“If everyone is thinking alike, then no one is thinking.” I think he was right.
So who do we hold responsible if our President is responding to evil in a manner that threatens the future of America? I believe two groups of Americans are responsible; the group that elected him and the group who didn’t prevent his election. To which group do you belong?
Apathy can be just as deadly as a bullet; it just takes longer.
