    It doesn't matter now. The usual result of an incompetent CiC. Too little. Too late.

    It would have been right to never start funding and arming Islamic extremists to begin with.

    ISIS is what we get for listening to the neocons aka "the crazies".

    "this guy is bad news, he has to go!". So we took him out. The result? Death, destruction, chaos, blood and more terrorists. "that guy is bad news, he has to go!". So we took him out. The result? Death, destruction, chaos, blood and more terrorists. "this guy is bad news, he has to go!". We're still trying to take him out. The result so far? Death, destruction, chaos, blood and more terrorists, lots more terrorists.

    Washington just keeps repeating the same process over and over and getting the same results. Seems like they never learn, or these are the results they want.

    There is one item missing in the list...

    "Death, destruction, chaos, blood and more terrorists, lots more terrorists, and the president goes on vacation"

    SMH. The question was posed because there isn't enough he could have done to sate those of you who want to complain about everything he does.

    That man can't take a dump sideways without some of you complaining about it.:laugh: Have you sincerely prayed for him today?

    My heart is clear ....

    I always pray for this country and its leaders. You see; I have aright to complain because I vote, and I pray, and the first amendment says I can speak to whatever I want to speak about!

    For a brother, you complain a lot about the body you are a member of. And that is your right, just like it is the right of all of us to speak our heart about a leader or a situation!

    In fact, it is for the reasons I said - I vote, and I pray - therefore, I can complain so long as the complaints are fair. And when it comes to Obama and ALL of Congress and the folks, Obama has appointed to serve with him, if they are failing to do the job, they get paid for, I have an RIGHT and an RESPONSIBILTY to speak out!

    Have you prayed for the country and its leaders? And more importantly, do you pray for those in this body that you love to openly tear down?

    One more thing ......

    .... I voted "Yes." I felt he did the right thing for now. Maybe this should have been done months ago; I don't know? Nevertheless, at least he is doing the right thing! I do pray for him, as his speech and actions take me back to LBJ when he spoke about Anerica doing strategic bombing of North Viet Nam, and that there'd be no boots on the ground!

    I think we are headed down the same path! Yes, history does repeat itself! I will wait and see!
