It appears Obama has lost Richard Engel of NBC News. He gives Obama the "what for" in this recent report from Yahoo News:



“In Syria you have the U.S. fighting both with Iran and against Iran in the same country,” Engel began, referring to U.S. negotiations with Iran in Switzerland and simultaneous assistance in ongoing airstrikes against Iranian-backed targets in Yemen. “We’re fighting both with and against Iran in Syria, and fighting with Iran in Iraq.”

“There’s an incredibly convoluted dynamic underway right now where the U.S. is negotiating on one hand to come up with some sort of comprehensive deal with Iran, which would see Iran put some breaks on its nuclear program in exchange for lifting the sanctions.”

"Engel said many analysts have told him Obama’s policy is “incoherent” regarding not just Iran but the Middle East in general"

What say you now, NBC News, hmmm?

I recall an open mic "whoops" in 2011, I believe, with a flashy press conference showing Putin and Obama posing for the cameras, pretending to like each other. Mr. Obama leans over to Mr. Putin and says, "I can do a lot more in my second term."

We are now living in Obama's "a lot more".

"Most dangerous President in our nation's history " will be Obama's legacy.

A few of the kool aid drinkers are beginning to realize it's time to at least start wondering if the emperor is not wearing any clothes.

The MSM might be in a "pre-butter-up" mode.

Collateral for the next Obama mass failure that they can't cover up (there's a dozen in the oven).

And maybe long term butter up for the next administration.

He certainly has "done more".

I wonder if Engel will join Brian William every morning on the golf course instead of working at NBC News?

Obama has no overall strategic goals in his foreign policy.


It was easy, though complex, when he had just ISIS for an enemy where he could temporarily ally with Syria AND Iran to fight ISIS, something he’s de-facto doing in Iraq already very flimsily and slowly.


Then he could have eliminated ISIS quickly before all this other stuff occurred in Yemen but he is too inexperienced and ignorant in foreign policy nuances.

Obama’s got to realize that foreign policy is often a zero-sum game and you can’t please everyone.

Now he has long drawn out wars on his hands which he may loose both because of his indecisive actions.

With this Yemen thing he has virtually lost the Arab coalition against ISIS which wasn't much in the first place.

Obama is a foreign policy disaster

Obama needs to please the people who sign his paycheck. So far he has failed.

"History" is a little vague.

Let me fix that for you:
"Best president in our Nation's history between 2008 and 2016."

While you're at it, you can liquidate your stockpile of blinders too. Just make sure you keep the set you're currently wearing.

Yeah, Bush was not the best but not as bad as the "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. I PROMISE."
I don't think even Obama believes himself anymore.

He's gonna make a deal with Iran, not in writing... Perhaps a spit-shake will suffice under the low standards of Mr. Obama.
