What If Obama Gave A War And No One Showed Up?

Updated on September 3, 2013

Not Exactly John Wayne By Any Means

Cowboy Or Rodeo Clown?

There are black cowboys around but Barack Obama isn't one of them I can assure. I read an article that called him Barack "Honcho" Obama that gave me pause to think about this phony we have as a President. I'm not sure he can spell "cowboy" much less be one. That is coming from a Texan out here in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area. How ludicrous but what he's now up to isn't funny in the least bit. Now "The Duke" was an iconic cowboy and one thing he said always rings true with me. “Life is tough, but it’s tougher when you’re stupid.”

That describes a would be cowboy like Obama to a "T" and also describes what William Jefferson Clinton did to the military back in the early 1990's when according to him, "The world was then going to be a safe place to live." Why? Because he was elected and thought that highly of himself? Obama's an egomaniac too in case you haven't noticed. Clinton took our military strength down to bare bones and now Obama has cut umpteen billions of our dollars out of the defense budget and suddenly decides he wants to start another war? That's very Clintonesque of Obama. I know that some of you Democrats slobber all over Bill Clinton but I sure don't, didn't and never will. He also was an unfit Commander-in-Chief.

Has anyone bothered to inform Barack Obama that this nation is broke and about to go bare bones? Or is he just ignoring that detail?

He's Hard To Throw A Diaper On. Just Ask Moochelle.

What John Wayne said fits what Obama seems intent on doing - being stupid once again. The guy is about to pick a fight we can't afford nor do we need to. Leave Syria and the Middle East to their own devices. It's looking more and more like the world is also recognizing Obama for the rodeo clown he has come to personify. He sees himself as the smartest guy in any room but if he's really smart he'll avoid any more conflict which makes him a clown on the world stage. Just think, he actually won the Nobel Peace Prize for doing nothing. It must have gone straight to his head that he was an authority on the world stage.

Then there were those pesky military budget cuts he could throw his weight around with. Wise move wannabe cowboy Obama. The Marines became his umbrella holders without a thought about him ever needing the military for what we pay them for - the defense of this nation. So off he goes like the Lone Ranger wanting to go it alone and finding that more than likely. He may be the only one spoiling for that sort of idiotic fight he is intent on pickling. He's the one who drew a red line then kept moving it for over a year showing bravado but not much else except his backside to the world.

My sources tell me that since his budget slashing the military is running a little short on operating funds to bolster his inflated ego and image of himself. He is his own undoing continually and only the die hard "fainters" still faint at the mere mention of his name.

His Scape Goat Is A Repeat It Seems

As usual Stick Em Up Obama bit off more than he can chew. He tried to form a coalition an d embarrassed the British Prime Minister in the process who had the forethought not to follow the non-leader without Parliaments approval. They said not only no but hell no. It must have come as a bit of a shock to find out there was no money left in the military coffers to finance his latest fantasy. He's the one with the axe so it should have dawned on him that actual defense takes men, arms, munitions and above all money. Maybe he's been too busy blaming Lottie, Dottie and everybody for his own folly instead of paying attention and leading.

You don't invite everyone to dinner and then suddenly realize you forgot your wallet. Only in Obamaville I reckon. It isn't his money that he is wasting but ours chasing the many windmills I've watched him chasing.

So with egg on his mug anew he will have to go to Congress and ask for more money to pursue his next joust. Remember the "sequester?" Lest we forget, that was his idea. This whole move seems more about Obama once again trying to save face for another screw up. He talks tough but talk is cheap and he has cheapened the office of the Presidency in just 5 short years beyond comprehension. When, and if, Congress says no he'll have his scapegoat once again.

This was "The One" if I remember correctly. He who was going to make the ocean's recede and heal the planet bringing peace and harmony to all just by his mere presence. If you told his "fainters" that he is a fraud, they were quick to shout you down. But we see what we see, We see what amounts to no more than a Rhinestone Cowboy if he has any cowboy in him at all. All that glitters is not gold my fellow Americans.

On the sidelines sits John McBama, the Arizona loser, trying to convince the nation that we need to go to war once again. Arizona voters please retire this idiot RINO.

"Vote It," "Like" It, "Tweet" It, "Pin " It, "Share It" With Your Followers. Time to let em read it and keep reading it.

As Always,

Arm Them And Disarm Us? I Don't Think So!

      Frog - I'm not sure throwing the bums out will fix anything. All you get is more bums. The much more probitive question is how do you influence a body of people (Congress) that will always be made up mainly of bums. I think the answer is continued growth in the number of good advocacy groups, and alot more coordination between them. When these groups cooperate, five 200,000 person petitions on a specific topic becomes one 1,000,000 person petition. Same thing for class action suits to vacate federal laws that violate the Constitution or extant non-nullifiable federal code. Congressmen act like bums because they are addicted to special interest money. The only thing that scares them more than not getting this money is not getting votes at reelection time. Were citizen petitions to have alot more signers, and alot more citizens were to write to Congress at the behest of advocacy groups, the power of plutocracy could be materially blunted. Stu

      It was Clinton who brought us to the brink of a bloody civil war in the U.S. in 1994, though few outside of the hardcore right and the feds who watch them fully recognized that truth. The turning point that let us get past what could have been the flash point came in 1996, two years after the horrors of Waco, TX, and Ruby Ridge, ID. The setting was yet another standoff, this time at a ranch near Jordan, Montana. The Feds were camped out in force when militia members began drifting in from various points around the country, camping out to watch the FBI agents who were watching (and demanding the surrender of) the Montana Freemen.

      Simply put, the militia members put their lives on the line for weeks, not impeding the FBI in any way, but simply letting the Feds know a repeat of the previous slaughters (Branch Davidians at Waco, Randy Weaver's wife, son, and dog at Ruby Ridge) would not be tolerated.

      Impressively, the FBI (and presumably Janet Reno, along with Clinton himself) got the message. It took a while, but the Freemen did eventually surrender without bloodshed.

      The militia's impact was, of course, never reported by the mainstream media, except in area-local Montana newspapers and a couple of articles in South Dakota (but never nationally). Nor will you find it mentioned in the Wikipedia account of the Montana Freemen, but that time at least, the militia did influence our civil servants (FBI) to actually act civil in the pursuance of their duties.

      Is Obama pushing the nation even closer to a new flash point with his unbelievably enormous expansion of Clinton style messes? I do not know. Since late 2006, I've been too busy trying to keep my wife alive to keep close track of these things. But at least one group who doesn't like militias at all, the Southern Poverty Law Center, reported in March of 2010 that the number of militias out there were "exploding" once again.

      The SPLC presumes this to be an indication of "rage on the right". As most of us posting on this page know, rage has little to do with it. Recognition of the Demise of America, on the other hand, has everything to do with it.

      What continues to amaze me is that, at least according to the Rasmussen tracking poll, Obama's numbers are NOT slipping. They're up & down, back & forth, but not beyond certain limited paramaters.

      The Kool Aid drinkers, it seems, have all had their brains turned to red high corn fructose crystals.

      Stu - The fact is that Obama dithered too long and now the pooch is screwed and he wants to blame someone else. He has cheapened the office of the Presidency repeatedly over the course of the past 5 years. If Congress goes along with this we need to fire for effect on them in November of 2014. I think Boehner needs to be one of the first on the list. What a waffle.

      Hi Frog,

      Apart from the illegality of going to war with Assad without Senate approval, it makes no sense to attack a nation that poses no imminent major threat to our own. In fact, any action by the US could make the already extremely tenuous situation in Syria far worse. If Assad comes out on top, the US interference will just make him more repressive. If the Shiite rebels come out on top, Syria will remain an Iranian ally, and have a Sharia government even more brutal than Assad's secular one. If the Sunni rebels come out on top (the most likely scenario due to their fighting skills, assuming the US creates a no-fly zone so the Damascus region Assad still controls can be conquered), there is likely to be a genocide of the Shiite rebels (because their presence will terrify the Sunni leadership because the Shiite rebels have such vast numbers). We have nothing to gain by attacking, we might make things alot worse in Syria if we do attack, and we have no justifiable moral reason to wage war in Syria.

      John Wayne, Obama is not. Even being a cowboy takes being a

      man, and Obama is not. The best description of Obama could possibly muster is assistant cowboy, or as I would describe him C0-TEX.
