Vladimir Putin: Leader of the Free World

"When you lead from behind, all you can see are asses, and you cannot see that you are the biggest ass of all"

Walter Russell Mead pins the blame for the Syrian crisis and its bloody, messy fallout directly where it belongs: On President Obama, Hillary Clinton and John Kerry:
Obama’s own policy decisions—allowing Assad to convert peaceful demonstrations into an increasingly ugly civil war, refusing to declare safe havens and no fly zones—were instrumental in creating the Syrian refugee crisis. This crisis is in large part the direct consequence of President Obama’s decision to stand aside and watch Syria burn.

For him to try and use a derisory and symbolic program to allow 10,000 refugees into the United States in order to posture as more caring than those evil Jacksonian rednecks out in the benighted sticks is one of the most cynical, cold-blooded, and nastily divisive moves an American President has made in a long time.
The game is up. President Obama has been "caught out" as the British would say, running a potemkin campaign against ISIS.  If he really wanted to defeat ISIS, he would have cratered major highways connecting Raqqa to the outside world, bombed every oil tanker that moved, and crippled Raqqa's utilities infrastructure.

Obama attacks his most hated enemies...  Americans who disagree with him

Standing there with his proverbial pants down in Turkey, smoke still in the air from the terrorist attacks in France, that petulant, brittle and peevish little man who is our president unleashed his sarcastic anger on...

... not America's enemies, but his American enemies that include all Republicans and at least half of the nation's citizens.

No wonder the west is mired chaos with flames licking at our feet. President Obama and his firebug partner Hillary lit the fuse.

Vladimir Putin Leader of the Free World

Lead from behind = Left behind...
"Russian President Vladimir Putin is now the leader of the Free World against Islamist terrorism, directing the efforts of France and Germany and setting terms for American involvement. Reeling from last week’s massacre in Paris, France lacks both the backbone and the brute force to avenge itself against ISIS, but in alliance with Russia it will make a more than symbolic contribution." (Asia Times)
Dems are Worried...  about themselves...

Stu Rothenberg at Roll Call worries all of these world events will hurt Democrats, while Hillary Clinton has been fingered as the Democrat's Dick Cheney.

President Obama and his band of merry mischief makers have now sown more chaos, spawned more humanitarian crises, and lit more fires than the Bushites,  and Democrats up for reelection next year are escaping the party plantation.
