Obama: The Crisis-N-Chief

Leading from behind or Hiding in the rear

Leading from behind
Hiding in the rear

by Lenny Leatherman 

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 if it is successful.

Take credit for success.

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!

Blame someone else if it is not!

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.

    You Do Realize that the U.S. Funded and Trained ISIS, Right?

    Apparently the mainstream establishment media would more likely attempt to have people believe such a thing exists rather than expose the blatant reality that yes, the U.S. has trained and funded ISIS and without the U.S. government, ISIS would not be the threat it has become.

    It came out back in 2012 that the U.S., Turkey and Jordan were jointly running a US CIA and Special Forces command training base for Syrian rebels out of the Jordanian town of Safawi, but apparently according the Jordanian officials, that training ‘wasn’t meant to be used in Iraq’ (via WND):

    Syrian rebels who would later join the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, or ISIS, were trained in 2012 by U.S. instructors working at a secret base in Jordan, according to informed Jordanian officials.

    The officials said dozens of future ISIS members were trained at the time as part of covert aid to the insurgents targeting the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in Syria. The officials said the training was not meant to be used for any future campaign in Iraq.

    So future ISIS members were specially trained by the U.S. government, huh? Ya don’t say. But they weren’t supposed to be used for campaigns in Iraq?

    Just Like Al-Qaeda , or Al-CIA-da as many knowledgeable observers call them.

    Maybe even a few blowhard, chickenhawk flagwavers might actually wish for Ron Pauls’ non-interventionist foreign policy.

    “I am convinced that there are more threats to American liberty within the 10 mile
    radius of my office on Capitol Hill than there are on the rest of the globe. ”

    Here is another , with more history –

    ” Note that these are the same so-called “rebels” that our covert intelligence agencies so graciously supplied arms to, in order to depose the Assad government, but I digress.

    Let me drop some truth for those who don’t know.

    The CIA started ISIS as the Mujahideen during the Afgan/Soviet war under the Carter Administration. It was the most expensive and most highly classified covert intelligence operation in U.S. history, called Operation Cyclone. ”
