Get sick of hearing the latest 'We despise the President' Fox News, talk radio media keep parroting the following phrase over and over and over again, from one lame show to another and that is...
Augggh, the President has no strategy, augghh, the President has no strategy, auggghh, the President has no strategy when dealing with ISIS...augghh (repeat about 10,000 more times)
In the mean time, people in the real world see as they say that, U.S. is bombing the heck out of ISIS, has been, and is the only Nation doing so, is the only nation, thus far, doing anything about ISIS, and trying to gather other nations to join in the fight...but according to Fox News, and talk radio parrots, 'that's doing nothing'...duh
He's there trying to put together a Nato alliance of 4000 troops to detour Russia from invading Ukraine.
Now whether you agree or disagree with what he's doing, no one with a brain can sit there and say he's doing nothing or doesn't have a plan. That's just denial and being a Fox News stooge and or talk radio Parrot.
'Obama baaaad, he have no plan, Obama baaad he have no plan" (polly want a craker?)
You may not like his plan, but to say he has no plan is being dishonest to self for the sake of politics.
And, and the President just authorized 350 more troops, advisers, to enter Iraq.
So as Fox News parrots the same 'we hate Obama' GOP propaganda, the President and his administration are clearly involved and engineering action, when no other nations will.

No doubt this vaccine will help those with cancer, regardless of their hatred or like of President Obama, who has ended the embargo against Cuba, and taking other measures to normalize relations, which Fox News types scorned him for earlier.
But as stated above, I'm glad he ended embargo, it just never felt right to me.
America has, does, business with nations around the world who are far worse than Cuba.
Now maybe common non political people can benefit from Cuban scientist who have vaccine for lung cancer.
And when afflicted with cancer, ones political ideology doesn't matter, help and a cure is all that matters.
Only fear I have is once Cuba and America start doing business again, I just hope rich greedy billionaire corporations don't rush down there and jack the price of cheap medicines up out of the reach of common people.
Seems billionaire corporations don't like it when common people can afford medication without going bankrupt to pay for it.

Jordan doing what other Middle Eastern nations should be doing, will be doing in future if U.S. just butt's out for a change.
President not as dumb as talk radio hosts imply, actually he's smarter and way more measured than ratings driven talk show hosts, and has a lot more to consider.
Jordan's military is now attacking ISIS...Bingo!
This is what is needed!, for other Muslim nations to rise up and squash out ISIS on their own, without U.S. interference.
It would be like China sending jets over here to fight the Mexican Mafia in Los Angeles.
As long as U.S. always takes the lead in fighting other peoples regional conflicts, U.S. will always suffer casualties and will always be looked at as the aggressor, and when aggression over even those U.S. helped will turn on U.S. This happens time and time again.
But according to sophomoric talk radio hosts, U.S. should just jump in head first and create a whole new generation of enemies.
Nothing is certain, but at least it's nice for a change to actually see a regional Muslim nation taking care of business....now if only other nations in that area will follow suit, and join Jordan in the fight instead of always luring U.S. into their regional conflicts.
But at least this is a good first step, and by Jordan stepping up, not being afraid, maybe their action will encourage other responsible nations in area to fight back also.
Supposed Conservatives always lecture others about not changing historical facts
Yet when President Obama brings up historical facts of the past, like how the Conquistadors of Spain, acting on behalf of Catholicism, slaughtered, conquered, masaquered 10,000s of 1000's of Aztecs and Incas and other tribes and peoples in South America, they get upset and feel insulted...why?
Not just in South America, but's pretty much how the whole 'new world' was conquered is through violence, which was justified through either the Christian faith or Catholicism.
The President didn't say anything wrong or erroneous, and not sure why people would choose to be 'insulted'.
Why, cause President wasn't politically correct?
Funny how being politically correct only matters when Conservatives feel they're the ones stepping on peoples sensitivities.
The President was 100% correct in what he said, regardless of whether one is a Christian or not, what he said was 100% correct.
Presidents speech on the 50th Anniversary of the bloody Selma, Alabama march
To be honest with you, I don't think it was one of his best speeches ever, I liked it though, but such a speech made by any President tends to be policy orientated at times.
It's easier to deliver powerful speech if not President over others, but cause he's President over entire nation, the speech got a bit 'korney' at times with inclusionary mentions. (But he has to do that cause he's elected leader of all, not just some, whether we like it or not)
Talk radio hosts like Limbaugh and the demonic Savage and Hannity will surely rip him to shreds on Monday...but they can do that, cause they're paid to entertain, and are not elected officials responsible for anyone or anything..
But elected officials must be much more measured in their speeches...common sense people understand this, hacks do not or don't want to.
I did not agree with everything in this speech, I thought he got to broad with the whole 'Rio Grand' reference...refering to Mexicans crossing river to be in nation, and equating their cause with civil rights.
I can honestly say most Mexicans who cross borders could care the less about 'black' people, and usually join gangs that oppose all things 'black'. (since 2000 anyways).
Bless his heart, but President still tends to paint a Norman Rockwell picture of America and peoples intentions when they arrive here.
I really can't fault him for that though.
President tends to be a bit generic in his idealism for America...but again that's not a evil trait, just a slightly naïve one or view.
I also think it was wonderful that former President Bush Jr and his wife was there.
And if I had been President would of asked Bush Jr to stand next to me while I delivered speech.
Bush Jr really does have class, and represents the last of the old guard of Republican politicians who had class, and respect for office...but other than Bush, no other Republican politician was there, or any running for office...and they wonder why the divide...wonder why 'blacks' hesitate to vote for them...there absence says a lot.
And is why it's absurd to compare modern day 2015 Republicans with ones back then.
Other than the Bush family, not a single modern day prominent Republican was there...that's very telling, and I hope voters remember that.
Being President is hard these days, nation is much more fragmented than it was 50 years ago.
Next Republican President will catch hell from all those who say GOP spit on their man.
Sad indeed how divided this nation is becoming, not over color but over politics...over Democracy, which was suppose to be perfect system, yet seems to breed hatred in many towards fellow citizens who exercise right to vote...how sad and pathetic.
I support all Presidents who are fairly elected...unlike Fox News hacks, racists and others...I do respect the system.

There's a terrorist attack in Brussel Belgium and right wing radio hacks instantly, even before blaming terrorist who did it, start crucifying President Obama
Terrorist struck in Belgium Europe today, around 30 dead so far, I'm sure most have heard so I don't need to go into gory details as it's all over the news.
What I'm writing this post for is in response to talk radio hosts constant need to 'blame' elected U.S. President for everything under the sun, as Bushes opponents did to him, and as they will do to Donald Trump should he be elected, but at least I try to be consistent by not allowing political preference effect my ability to reason properly.
As such in this incident I think talk radio hosts are being overly dramatic, vile, and going out of their way to attack the character and intent of U.S. President, and using latest terror attack in Europe, not the U.S. but Europe as an excuse to verbally denigrate President, the way they will not want others doing so to next GOP President.
My thoughts on the matter.
Attack occurred in Belgium Europe, not U.S., as such I have no need to be upset at President, none.
The citizens of Brussel Belgium should be upset at their own elected leaders over there, but I have no need to be upset at U.S. President.
Not sure why President Obama is responsible for vetting terrorists even in other sovereign nations, that's the job of their security detail, not ours.
That's not a 'Liberal view', that's a common sense view.
I, unlike hackish glam queen talk radio hosts, cannot sit here and feel anger towards Barrack Obama for something that occurred over in Belgium, it would not be logical.
U.S. President doesn't run the Belgium Government, so how can I blame P-Obama for their failings?
I can't, unless simply 'hate' President just to hate him simply do to xyz.
One thing about blind hate is logic doesn't have to apply. The right often blames the left of this, yet those in right wing media, themselves, do it all the time to current President.
The only people I blame for what occurred in Belgium today are.
1. Their Government for allowing so many immigrants and refugees into their nation.
2. The ungrateful immigrants or citizens of Belgium who carried out this act even though nation nice, kind, enough to allow them to enter.
Those are who I blame, but President Obama had, has, nothing to do with how Belgium runs it's society, or who Belgium decides to let in or not.
Nor do I blame Hillary or Bernie Sanders for what occurred today in Belgium, for they had nothing to do with it either, even if their solutions or comments to incident I may disagree with.
I will never surrender being a rational thinker to partisan politics.
And I even kind of wish President had finished his attendance at ball game in Cuba, instead of allowing terrorists to disrupt daily routine like they want to.
The U.S. President, whether Obama or Trump or Cruz or whomever, is not the worlds parent.
Belgium is plenty capable of handling this incident on their own, and hopefully now they'll wise up and get with the program and quit allowing so many unvetted middle eastern immigrants and refugees to flood into their nation.
Also, don't get this stupid obsession by media conservatives to insist that somehow calling criminals 'Islamist criminals' will somehow help in their defeat??
That's like saying if you don't properly call cancer, 'liver cancer', that you can't defeat it or recognize it's bad...I don't get that.
Just destroy it, regardless of what it's called and or named in whatever language, you judge it by it's behavior, not whatever name you decide to call it, that seems really trivial to me.
Not sure how any rational sane person can site President for creating division in U.S.
The above video is speech President gave in response to dual back to back police on civilian shootings that occurred last week prior to the Dallas shootings of 11-12 officers, 5 of which past away.
According to talk radio hosts, especially Savage, who's very viscous in his accusations and name calling towards President, but according to radio hosts President has some how cause citizens in U.S. to become more diviced
The above radio hosts, and more, like 100's more in local cities all across nation, rile against the President daily, 24 hours around the clock on A.M. radio and now FM, streaming radio, TV and more, all they have done for 7 1/2 years is blindly bash the President...to me, they're the ones who have, and are, constantly creating the 'hate and division'.
It's not the President.
The President is not responsible for 'white' and sometimes 'black or Hispanic' officers who tend to be trigger happy around black males, and shoot even when suspect or driver pulled over out of raw fear of 'black males'.
It's those incidents that trigger social unrest, not any 'black on white' hostility.
There would be no protests, ever, if these shootings did not keep occurring...a rational person understands that.
The President is not asking or ordering cops to shoot black suspects, or any suspect, so that's not his fault how people in local communities decide to react to such shootings.
Again rational, non partisan people totally get and understand that, but talk radio types, Fox news hosts, and audience love always framing protesters of the dead as being 'white people haters'.
But that's not true, they're mad at the police, or particular officer, or departments that initially don't see the injustice, and if not for phone cameras, all this would go un noticed.
These shootings, would, have, always occured under all Presidents, just in past people didn't have phone cameras to record them and cops word would simply be end of case, dead man buried and no investigation.
People hold this inside for years, decades, just like people remember public tragedies like 911 ect.
So when it keeps occurring, now in the age of phone cameras, suspicion is simply validated and people unite at rallies to protest Government abuse of citizens.
You'd think Conservatives would understand this, and maybe the ones on the streets do, but the media conservatives, hosts, certainly do not, and always demonize the protesters as being 'agitators'...
But if police were killing off their nephews, dads, brothers also, I doubt these radio hosts would sit by idly and do or say nothing.
Do black criminals shoot, hurt, kill other 'blacks' or people of color, of course...
So the next dumb question posed by talk radio hosts is always,
'Well gee, duh, why don't black people protest when criminals shoot blacks?
1. For one criminals aren't held to same standard as State sanctioned officers
2. Street criminals, when caught, are arrested, booked, and charged then sentenced, why do you think the prisons are so full...duh. So there's no need to protest cause justice is served to them when caught, but with State sanctioned officers, that doesn't always occur, it does more often now do to phone cameras, but in the past, before cameras, police could get away with shooting black males all the time and just write in report that 'suspect had a weapon'...
Then case close, no investigation, nothing, and this occurred for centuries, decades, and only in last 20 years or so, have cops started getting convicted for wrongfully shooting males of color.
10's of 1000's of black males have died at the hands of cops over the last century that of course most whites would never hear or no about since not biologically related, but if in black community forced to hear such stories weekly, just to have to hear Hannity the hack tell audience that 'Well gee, if you just comply, cops won't hurt you'...
Tell that to this guy...
Or this guy here...
Innocent black man didn't even know cop was up on him, didn't even know he did anything wrong, was in new car, getting I.D., had no weapon, but again hyper angry paranoid psycho cop shoots him did..
And by the way, mans hands were up, officer still shot, so that narrative is true.
This is what sparks outrage, not anything President says or responds to.
The idea that 'President has divided nation', that sour radio hosts put out to audience, is total BS
Funny how the only time nations feels 'divided' is when watching the news, and or listening to talk radio hosts who frame things to fit their view of life and to reflect their own hearts, not others.
Turn off radio, turn of CNN or Fox, ect, and don't see no division, just see common people going about daily routines.
Police shootings are what erupted street protests, not a sense of 'division'...any smart person with a brain, and honest, can make that distinction.
If no cell phone cameras to record questionable shootings of black males, no riots, no nothing.
President Obama has zero to do with that.
And stupid older pasty Ivy league media types who think street types watch the news, and hang on Presidents every word, as they do, are dense.
If Bush or Trump or Hillary or Hannity were President, exact same street protests would break out, they're reacting to videos and own circle of social media, not on what President says at Pres conference.
The people in the streets, the protesters, don't sit at home smoking pipe, reading news paper waiting to react to P-Obamas words...
The people on the streets are responsible for own actions, behaviors, just like protesters who show up at Trump rallies are.
Unlike most partisan hacks, I'm consistent.
P-Obama has not divided me from anyone I didn't already feel divided from under Bush, I'm still the same rational person under Obama as I was under Bush and Pres before him, so are most.
The only people who keep screaming that nation is more divided now are those who themselves have hatred and fear and hostility in their hearts, has always been there, just now they can conveniently blame it on current Pres.
I guess P-Obama has more power over their spirit than 'Jesus' does...wow.
People hate cause they want to hate, it's their own choice to, no Pres can effect that.
Sane rational people know this, irrational types caught up in ratings driven partisan politics, know it to, but have traded honesty for politics and ratings.
