    I would not expect all to agree. After all there are those who cannot stand for someone to point out the fallacy of false accusations as is the case in your OP and cannot see whom they defend did the same and worse.

    While dancing he was awaiting conformation that his orders to DoD had resulted in the death of the #2 leader at ISIS. If that is what happens when he dances, let him dance even more!


    (CNN) The Pentagon said Friday that it had killed ISIS' finance minister, Abd al-Rahman Mustafa al-Qaduli, whom many analysts consider the group's No. 2 leader.

    Those analysts believe al-Qaduli would have been expected to take control of the day-to-day running of ISIS, also called ISIL, if its leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, was killed or incapacitated.

    The U.S. operation was intended to capture him alive, a U.S. official told CNN. Helicopters loaded with special operations forces swooped in on a vehicle carrying al-Qaduli, but at the last moment something happened that caused them to decide to fire on the vehicle instead. The official would not say what it was that caused them to modify the plan.

    Defense Secretary Ash Carter announced the death at a news conference Friday morning.
    "We are systematically eliminating ISIL's cabinet," Carter said, adding it was "the second senior ISIL leader we've successfully targeted this month."

    I don't see how Obama (or any President) could win in this situation. If he packs up and leaves and flies back to Washington in the middle of a diplomatic trip, then he's letting the terrorists run his life. If he stays in Argentina and attends this state dinner then he's weak on terrorism.

    What would you have Obama do, RD2?

    Now you know this has nothing to do with what Obama does or doesn't do. RD2 just has a problem.

    Here is an idea defeat the terrorists instead of making excuses for them and this would not be an issue. However, his real intentions behind dacning instead of worrying about real threats around the world at such a time as this is discovered when he said that Isis is not an existential threat. It was revealed when he said Isis is the JV team.

    The truth is he does not want to deal with them. He wants to protect Muslims at all costs. Even when that costs is American lives.

    However, he has no problem seeing Americans as threats and enemies does he.

    The guy who is apparently "making excuses for them" has done more to defeat ISIS in an afternoon than you have in a lifetime. Does he want to protect Muslims? Yes. Does he want to protect ISIS? Apparently not. I'm fine with that.

    Zaac, what was embarrassing to me was Obama's lack of skill dancing with the flamenco dancer.
    If you would ask me what his problem was - well, I would say the he looked a little "tipsy" to me.

    While I respect you brother ... that comment is nothing more than pure speculation! His job is to lead this nation, not a hotly attired Latina across the ball room dance floor!

    The only problem I have is with your ridiculous views and foolish comments. Comments that are borderline retaliatory in nature, whenever your man is challenged along with your ideas!

    That's your opinion acerbated by your already established dislike of the man on January 20th, 2009.
    Again, nothing but opinion not based in fact. It's the untrue Fox News narrative that folks who simply dislike this President have taken to repeating. Like Fox, they don't care that the statements aren't true. They are mad that he is in office and will do everything they can to convince folks that he hasn't accomplished anything, or that he isn't doing anything.

    Another reason why Christians shouldn't be so gung ho about party politics.
    He seems to be doing a decent job seeing all the threats. Folks like you just claim he's being divisive when he does.

    No! What is funny is your statement. The president has "killed" no one (personally). It was our brave men, women and drones that have eliminated terrorists. This POTUS would not be willing to dirty his hands with the blood of our enemies. It should be noted, that if you want to do an official body count or a damage assessment, Obama would be near the bottom of that list, as he has done more to.avoid killing the enemy at any cost. He only does, shall I say, cosmetic warfare.

    History will prove this to be true, so believe what you wish, just don't confuse Obama with a president that is out to do anything more then "contain and confine" the enemy, holding them in check until he can walk away and leave the war in the hands of his successor. That way he can sit back in his new world and criticize what must be done to keep the world safe, let alone, Americans!
