I'm pretty sure people at Fox News have a Benghazi quota and she was behind, so she had to throw in a few extra Benghazis here and there.

And I'm sure if he came out and said he was personally going to hunt every ISIS farkwad down, skin them alive, dunk them in rubbing alcohol, skullfark them, and then set them on fire, Fox would biatch about how tyrannical and violent O was behaving.

Considering that at this point, the Obama Administration has gone after and killed how many folks, I think that maybe folks might have gotten the fact, that he follows the "speak softly but carry a big stick" motif. Remember the whole "pirate" thing? Folks were all up in arms about his LACK of response, up until pirates were suddenly and very dead? How many Al Qaida operatives have been erased by ordnance delivered without fanfare?

Our President doesn't posture, he doesn't indulge in braggadocio, he doesn't telegraph intentions. He HAS ordered a LOT of folks simply erased from existence, and turned into a red mist and stains on hardscrabble.

When you're bouncing, you notice the guys who aren't engaging in the usual banter and posturing. Most of those guys will back down soon enough, but for damn sure you watch the quiet ones who unlimber themselves from chairs and stand ready. This is a President with a track record of ending a lot of fairly nasty folks, and without a lot of fanfare. Analysts have sort of ignored that for some time, and in part, I think that is to the President's credit, in that he doesn't brag about actions, but he certainly gets things done.

Didn't hear/see Obama statement but I would remind the idiots that there is another reporter held captive by ISIS now.  If nothing else but for respect to the family and other journalists, Obama has to temper what he says.  When ISIS kills the other journalist (save a miracle) you will see a different type of response from Obama.

Buy some corn tortillas. Buy some queso fresco. Place queso on tortilla. Throw your leftovers on tortilla.

Marine Todd was standing by waiting to parachute in and save the American journalist when his phone rang. It was the White House... again. He was given an order to stand down.

Never had Marine Todd been so torn between his need to protect American lives and his duty to obey orders. Then he remembered it was only his duty to obey lawful orders...

Carne Asada is good, and tacos el pastor is even better, but far above both is
fish. It is true, of course, that a genius may, with certain limes, do more than a
brave and manly cook who is not a genius; and so, in tacos, vast tastes of
cheese may overcome weakness, even though the puny avocado may have in it the
heart of a lion. But, in the long run, in the great battle of food, no brilliancy of
intellect, no perfection of food development, will count when weighed in the
balance against that assemblage of meat, tomato and onion, of normal quantities,
which we group together under the name of 'taco'; and if between any two
tacos, even in a college bar or in taco stand, the difference in taste
on the right side is as great as the difference of taste or flavor the other
way, it is the taco's side that will win.

"Jim Foley's life stands in stark contrast to the killers," Obama said, adding that "no just god would stand for what they do every day."

"I would have liked to hear a bit more fire in that belly...


So it's not what he said but how he said it now?

Really?

I guess when it came time to decide whether today was an "Obama is doing too much, the lawless tyrant!" Day or an "Obama is doing too little, what an empty-suited goofball he is" Day the coin musta landed on it's edge and not fallen either way.

Full Disclosure: I actually have no idea how they officially pick which derp du jour narrative to go with over at FOX so that's just a guess, eh?

Someone on Fox News giving a bad name to both the female reproductive system and blubber? My lack of surprise could register on the Richter scale.

On the bright side, I know what I want for dinner: Tacos.

Beef tacos, mind you. Fox has been at the chicken, and I'm pretty sure that's not marinade running out of it now.

Oh, that's right. The President's a black guy now. I guess only republicans are beyond question.

Probably because he didn't train for the special forces. It's really best to leave such things to experts.

Obama's got the dry erase board up in his closet or something, and while he's putting on his socks each morning he draws a line through yesterday's "dead folks" names. He doesn't need a banner stretched across a flagship telling him he's awesome, he's got that list with all the lines through it.

It's not about him being black, but a Democrat. Hillary, it's not about her being a woman, but she's a Democrat. Well, that and a lot of folks are nursing some serious butthurt about hearings with the First Lady about health care, and not getting their favorite seat on a plane. Black is something that the folks who are using narrative as their watchword for reality can use, certainly. It gives them a wedge to use, and it's a current under a lot of discussion, because some folks are upset that they can't just call him certain names, but damned if they can put some watermelon on some pieces of paper and photoshop some bones through his nose, and think that they're the HEIGHT of hilarity. But Obama is the REAL racist, after all, because he won't stop those fist bumps or enjoying basketball, and INVITING those reactions, because this week he's the MOST STRATEGICALLY DIVISIVE PRESIDENT EVAR! as opposed to next week when he'll be AN EMPTY SUIT WHO WON'T GO AFTER THESE TERRORISTS and if and when he does find these asshats, his response will either be TOO FAR! or NOT ENOUGH depending if he kills them or gets them captured for trial. It doesn't matter. He's a Democrat, so EVERYTHING he does is AUTOMATICALLY WRONG, BECAUSE REASONS.

There are issues that I have with this President, but I voted for him, because the alternative was busted ass crazy or corrupt beyond belief. I'd rather have someone sane at the helm at least trying to dig out of the mess that we got ourselves into at the start of this century, as opposed to digging DOWN HARDER! I wish I could have voted for my former Party, but the leadership has doubled down on idiocy and narrative over substantive policy, and so long as Rove and his ilk are pulling the strings on the party, for its heart and soul, there is no way I can support that sort of crap, because the NeoCon vision for America is not a future I want for my daughter. The "Libertarian" paradise is naught but hoping to be INSIDE the walls when civilization comes crashing down. Doubling down on foreign policy that guarantees folks are going to be pissed off at us for generations to come isn't going to make things easier either, and strong arming our way through messes isn't what we need. We had a loud, brash, and overconfident man at the helm already, and we got a LOT of conflicts for his mishandling of foreign policy, and we're still reaping the effects today.

Might have to clean up a lot more before we're done, but at some point maybe we should stop pooping in our own dog dish...
