    I just watched the FOX News special, "13 Hours" and it hit me that the same indecisiveness we are seeing in Obama to take action against Russia in Crimea and the Ukraine and against ISIL/ISIS in Syria and Iraq may have been the actual cause of the Benghazi fiasco; leaving a US Ambassador and three security personnel dead.

    Take a minute to think about how indecisive and deliberative Obama is when it comes to making any decision that would involve military and defending Americans; and maybe you will see what I saw, while watching this excellent FOX Special? His mannerisms, may in fact be a character flaw? Something the POTUS should not have! It may be his stiff neck approach to take any form of military actions, for whatever the reason, could have cost the life of four brave Americans?

    After all, Obama ran as the "No war" candidate, and it may be due to his campaign promise that got him elected in 2008; on the other hand, simply has the inability to pull the trigger when it needs to be pulled, that brought Benghazi home to roost at his doortstep; and forever on his legacy as the POTUS.

    After all, the POTUS is the one who makes those kind of life and death decisions, and like he so appropriately said during his debate at Saddleback Christian Church, "That is above my paygrade!" Well, Mr. President, when it comes to life's lost in a war declared on America by terrorists around the world, America duly elected you to the office of President, and that put you at the highest paygrade possible.

    Benghazi, Iraq, Ukraine, Iran, Russia, Syria, and even Libia is no longer beyond your pay grade. You are supposed to make those kinds of decisions, and delays are costing more lives of Americans, including the two journalist who were beheaded by ISIL!

    BTW - I know some of you don't like FOX News, but I suggest you either read the book, or save yourself the time (for reading a book) and money (to purchase the book), swallow your pride and disgust for FOX, and watch this special. It puts new light on that sad incident! :tear:

    That is one possibility. I hope he is found negligent and impeached for failing to execute his duly sworn oath to protect Americans. :tonofbricks:

    Yes. Presidential indecisiveness is always the cause. :rolleyes:

    Bush's indecisiveness caused 9/11 and the housing bubble collapse. And let's not forget all those folks who his indecisiveness messed up after hurricane Katrina. Somebody throw a shoe at him.

    Clinton's indecisiveness caused the bombings of our embassies in East Africa by Al Qaeda. And the ethnic cleansing and genocide that took place in Kosovo could have been avoided if he hadn't been so indecisive.

    If George HW Bush hadn't been so indecisive and asleep at the wheel, Kuwait never would have been invaded.

    And Reagan. Lord help us. Maybe Alzheimers impaired his ability to be decisive. But had he been more decisive, there wouldn't have been a Libya bombing and no Iran Contra Affair. His indecisiveness deserves all the blame for not getting us out of the Cold War during his first term.

    classic liberal response....

    Blame Bush for 9/11. Gee be more creative than that. That's old news, and far from true.

    If you want to debate the post, don't cop an Obama! Blaming W has grown old. Bush would never have sat on his hands with Benghazi. He would've moved heaven and hell to get those guys ALL out a alive. You know that, and that bothers you. Your man is wishy-washy.:laugh:

    Shoot. If we can blame Benghazi on Obama's indecisiveness, then certainly people can blame 9/11 on Bush's indecisiveness.

    You see that's how partisan politics works. If you can do it, so can everyone else and all you can say is ungh ungh, that's not true.

    DING, DING, DING. We have a winner. Physician heal thyself and take thine own advice.

    Yep partisan politics. So don't be surprised when them partisans on the other side see you doing the same thing about their guy that you're coming to the aid of Bush about.

    Class dismissed.

    Knew that would make too much sense for you . Just as I knew you would rush to George Bush's defense and not realize that the very thing you don't want people to do with Bush, you do with Obama. :laugh:

    But Bush is gone. Obeyme is the President. He needs to lead and he isn't. It is FAR PAST TIME HE STARTS ACTING LIKE THE LEADER OF THE FREE WORLD. Bush is not the issue. Mr. Obeyme's lack of leadership is at hand. I was NO FAN of W. I am no fan of Obeyme. Clinton and Reagan, IMO, were good leaders and had backbone. Obeyme DOESN'T have backbone. He has no business running the country..... which doesn't speak highly for the low-info voter, vor the Repugnicans who failed to put up somebody who could win. Obeyme's pal Eric Holder needs to be banished from this country.

    I'm sickened by the lack of leadership! I'm sickened by a President who can tell everyone that an American was beheaded and can be back on the golf course laughing and chatting it up with his rich buddies four minutes later. I'm sickened by ALL of our former Presidents that refused to protect our border for political expediency. I'm sickened by a President whose lack of resolve contributed to the deaths of our troops and our AMBASSADOR and whose underlings ran around saying it was all because of a Youtube video. I'm sickened by a government that spies on its own people. I'm sickened that Obeyme put a thief and a liar named Timothy Geitner as the Secretary of the Treasury.

    I'm not satisfied with the current President nor with the former President. So I keep asking myself WHEN WILL WE HAVE REAL LEADERSHIP IN THIS COUNTRY??

    It doesn't matter if he's gone just as it didn't matter with Republicans that Clinton was gone once Bush took office.

    This is the silliness of partisan politics. Both sides do the exact same things. And then both sides declare up and down, left and right that they are not doing what the other did when "their party" was in the White House.



    But this is what they do. The Body of Christ needs to recognize that no politician is ever going to do everything the way that we want. We should be expecting them to do those things that lead to chaos and disorder in accordance with where we are in the timeline of Jesus Christ returning.

    We've put expectations on our Presidents and our politicians that , in lieu of where we are in history, we really shouldn't expect.

    I literally expect every President and our political leaders at this point to keep enacting policies that lead to the implosion of the United States as a world power. It's inevitable of anyone who is in the White House.

    The only thing that could slow the tide is the power of the Holy Spirit working through Christians.

    Unfortunately that's not gonna happen because politics has infected the church and folks in the church care more about politics than they do bringing glory to Christ. And thus wickedness grows.

    I don't think you will ever get the type of leadership that I believe you're thinking about. That type of leader would probably lose his life because he would have to go so against where the power brokers behind the scene are taking the country.

    And make no mistake about it, for the folks really pulling the strings, they don't give a horse's patooty about a President's party.

    The cause of Benghazi was pissed off Muslims.

    The inaction and the cover-up makes a true true scandal, but Obama did not cause the incident.

    He certainly has a record of being indecisive in critical times, but...

    Last I heard, Nobody knows where Obama was or what he was doing when the assault was happening.

    Sounds more like he may have been awol instead of indecisive.

    BREAKING: Silent-No-More Survivors Just Dropped This Benghazi Bombshell That Could Scorch Obama

    “I strongly believe if we’d left immediately, they’d still be alive today.” With those chilling words, one of the survivors of the deadly attack on the American compound in Benghazi once again raises the ugly specter of a “stand down” order having been given that fateful night two years ago. Multiple officials of the Obama administration have insisted no such delay was ordered.

    Fox News is reporting that three men who were in Benghazi as the assault took place — a security team at a secret CIA base near the compound under attack — were held back from immediately responding. Who gave the “stand down” order that delayed the effort to help the trapped Americans, including the four who would be killed? The three survivors — telling their story publicly for the first time — insist the order came from the top CIA officer in Benghazi.

    Obama was not indecisive on Benghazi. He made a clear decision to ignore it as much as possible because it was election time and that did not fit in with his claim that he had single handedly brought and end to terrorism and it was no longer a major threat in the word only because he was President.

    So because of his political ambitions American died.

    Hail King OBEYME - The Kenya Wonder?

    :thumbs: :thumbs: :thumbs:

    I wish I had a good answer to your question. BUSH was good when it came to showing toughness in face of foreign threats.

    BUT, his last two years were lived so recklessly, that he all but assured the DNC would regain power. Something like King Obeyme of Kenya is doing now! :BangHead:
