It must be exhausting for Barrack Obama. I sometimes feel worn down just reading about all the events going on in the world – I can’t even imagine how tiresome it must be, trying to avoid leadership on all those issues. Lucky for our Vacationer in Chief, he’s found a way… Apparently a healthy mix of golf and swimming is exactly what is needed to distract yourself from the chaos in the Middle East. And, to be fair, this genocidal chaos in Iraq is not completely the fault of a Nobel Laureate who plays the American President on TV.

The terrorist group ISIL doesn’t exist merely because a “lead from behind” US President has traded political expediency for international stability. They can also thank the appeasement mentality of Neville-Chamberlin-invertebrates throughout the world for their recent blitzkrieg of success. In fact, it is the West’s pervasive dedication to avoiding conviction that seems to embolden the murderously convicted terrorists in the Middle East.

The UN is stepping up their actions to stem the budding holocaust in Iraq: they’re writing a nasty-gram. (I hope they type the really harsh portions in all caps.) Seriously. The “greatest world power” in human history has become so weighted down with cowardice, ambivalence, and bureaucracy that – in the face of outright slaughter – the most they can muster is a few eloquent phrases and a sanction or two.

The unofficial spin doctors for Team Obama (AKA: MSNBC) have also joined the blissful bandwagon of intellectual bankruptcy. Michael Eric Dyson referred to ISIL as “so-called” terrorists… Right. The guys that thought Al Qaeda was a little too “warm and fuzzy” are only alleged terrorists. The fact that they behead, torture, crucify, rape, enslave, amputate, stone, and murder men, women, and children (in an effort to instill fear among their enemies) doesn’t actually mean anything, right?
