Unbelievable. Did President Obama just say what I think he said? Did our Commander-in-Chief basically admit that we don’t have a clue about combating the terror threat posed by ISIS?
In a hastily called news conference late Thursday, Obama conceded that “we don’t have a strategy yet to fight ISIS.” That’s worth repeating: ‘WE DON’T HAVE A STRATEGY YET TO FIGHT ISIS,” says the President of the United States, apparently without realizing he has waved both a white flag of surrender and a red flag of challenge to the fire-breathing bull that is the Islamic State.
Dressed like he was on his way to an end-of-summer garden party at the Great Gatsby’s estate, Obama stood before the gathered news media and admitted his incompetence.
The twitter eruption was immediate and unforgiving. Here are a few samples:

Clint Eastwood’s empty chair would have a better strategy to deal with ISIS than Barack Obama.

Obama: “We don’t have a strategy yet” on ISIS. It’s okay, bud. It’s not like you’ve had this job for nearly 6 years now.

These butchers were called “junior varsity” by Obama in one of his rare visits to the US from the golf course… http://t.co/RLQ1dMKpR0

Knowing how Obama operates in times of crisis, he will no doubt hurry off to a fundraiser on some private golf course.
