11/16/2015: Obama: Paris terror rampage a 'setback'
Three days after teams of Islamic State terrorists brazenly carried out raids across Paris that left 129 people dead, President Obama labeled the slaughter a "setback" in responding to questions about his policies.

A setback? 129 people killed and President Obama calls it a setback?

I watched 7+ minutes of the President's scripted, monotone dialogue at the G20 Summit in which he addressed the Paris massacre. Without the sound he could have been giving a lecture on the mating habits of the fruit fly. No fire. No passion. Nothing that would lead one to believe his words were anything more than an obligatory statement.

I felt embarrassed. Not only by the President's demeanor, but by the fact he walked into the session after a one minute moment of silence for the Paris victims had begun. That he continues to insist his strategy to defeat ISIS is working when it clearly is not. That he makes my country look the fool on the stage of world affairs.

Consider the following statements:

French President Holland: "France will be merciless toward the barbarians of Islamic State group".

Russian President Putin: "To Forgive The Terrorists Is Up To God, But To Send Them To Him Is Up To Me".

President Obama: "What I'm not interested in doing is posing or pursuing some notion of American leadership or America winning ..."

While I respect the office Barack Obama holds, the man is worthy of neither respect nor honor. He is an arrogant, self absorbed man whose vanity prevents him from putting America above his idology.
