President-elect Donald Trump has repeatedly promised to deliver a swift victory over the Islamic State, and has long ridiculed as weak and halfhearted the Obama administration’s effort against the terror group.

Of all of Trump’s extravagant and vague campaign rhetoric, from doubling economic growth to resuscitating the coal industry to making Mexico pay for a border wall, his promise to quickly crush the Islamic State could be the biggest stretch of all.

Current and former military officers say Trump could make good on his promises of “quickly” defeating the Islamic State only if he sent in an overwhelming force of U.S. ground troops, a politically risky option that could plunge the United States into another fraught, open-ended occupation in the Middle East.
So you agree Obama did basicly nothing!
Unless you want to send 100,000 troops into Syria or start dropping nuclear bombs I don't what else you can do. Do you?
Doing nothing like Obama did didn't work to well either did it! You use special forces, arm the rebels and keep bombing the hell out of them and quit trying to be politicly correct! Obama was to worried about what his legacy was going to look like! He already blew that with Obamacare!

It's also in keeping with the desires of many military leaders, who bristled at what they considered micromanagement under both the Bush and the Obama administrations. Under Presidents Bush and Obama, troop levels and intra-theater movements were managed by the White House. These movements, however, involved significantly higher numbers of troops. At the height of operations in Iraq, there were more than 170,000 Americans on the ground. Likewise, by 2010, after President Obama ordered the surge of an additional 30,000 troops to Afghanistan, more than 100,000 Americans were fighting there.

One could argue, then, that Trump's decision "normalizes" what should be the management of lower troop numbers for a mission that is not, and will not, become all-out war again. But it could also end up absolving him of responsibility.

First you say Obama did nothing. Now I show you Obama did a surge of 30,000 troops. You just ignore that and comment on Obamacare. You can change the subject as fast as Trump.

Two years ago, Trump supporters couldn’t look away. Now some are tuning out.

Donald Trump stepped onto a golden escalator at Trump Tower to launch his politics-as-reality-show in 2015. Now he is struggling to keep people engaged because governing is less entertaining than the spectacle of the 2016 campaign.

President Donald Trump is the nation's first billionaire president -- but he's not as rich as he used to be, according to the Forbes 2017 Billionaires List published Monday.

The magazine put his net worth at $3.5 billion, down $1 billion from the rankings it issued a year ago.

They should let it fail to show Obama wasn't as smart as he portrayed himself! Most of the people on Obamacare have nobody to blame but themselves for being on Obamacare! To lazy to get a education,to lazy to work and rely on foodstamps & section 8 to get by!

https://www.yahoo.com/news/donald-trump-apos-approval-rating-141136392.html

Another day, another low point for Donald Trump. The president's approval rating, which has proved historically bad since he took office, has sunk again.

The latest survey from CBS News out Tuesday found his approval rating had hit a new low of 36 percent, while 57 percent disapproved of the job he is doing. Trump's approval rating has declined over the last few months in the CBS News poll. Forty-three percent approved of him in early April, a number that dropped to 41 percent by late April and now has hit the new low of 36 percent in late June. The previous low for Trump was 39 percent in February.

Trump's support among Republicans might have been a factor in the drop. Seventy-two percent of GOP respondents approved of the president's job performance—which sounds like a lot but actually represents an 11-percentage-point fall compared with April.

The poll found that the investigation into Trump's potential ties with Russia, the country that interfered in the 2016 election as it aimed to help get the GOP candidate into office, has dragged down his popularity. His firing of FBI Director James Comey and comments suggesting the move was connected to the bureau's Russia probe, as well as his near-constant focus on the investigation, might not be helping him with the American people. Just 28 percent of respondents approved of the way he's handled the probe, according to CBS, while 63 percent disapprove. About one-third said Trump's approach on the process has left them thinking less of the president. Fifty-seven percent of GOP respondents approved of Trump's handling of the Russia investigation.

Robert Mueller has hired a dream team of 13+ experienced lawyers from the DOJ and other government bodies to handle the Russia probe. Lawrence O'Donnell argues that many of Trump's lawyers lack the experience and the abilities to properly defend him.

I’m starting to suspect that Donald Trump may not have been right when he said, “You know, I’m like a smart person.” The evidence continues to mount that he is far from smart — so far, in fact, that he may not be capable of carrying out his duties as president.

There is, for example, the story of how Trump met with the pastors of two major Presbyterian churches in New York. “I did very, very well with evangelicals in the polls,” he bragged. When the pastors told Trump they weren’t evangelicals, he demanded to know, “What are you then?” They told him they were mainline Presbyterians. “But you’re all Christians?” he asked. Yes, they had to assure him, Presbyterians are Christians. The kicker: Trump himself is Presbyterian.Or the story of how Trump asked the editors of the Economist whether they had ever heard of the phrase “priming the pump.” Yes, they assured him, they had. “I haven’t heard it,” Trump continued. “I mean, I just … I came up with it a couple of days ago, and I thought it was good.” The phrase has been in widespread use since at least the 1930s.

Or the story of how, after arriving in Israel from Saudi Arabia, Trump told his hosts, “We just got back from the Middle East.”

These aren’t examples of stupidity, you may object, but of ignorance. This has become a favorite talking point of Trump’s enablers. House Speaker Paul Ryan, for example, excused Trump’s attempts to pressure FBI Director James Comey into dropping a criminal investigation of former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn on the grounds that “the president’s new at this” and supposedly didn’t realize that he was doing anything wrong. But Trump has been president for nearly five months now, and he has shown no capacity to learn on the job.

Jun 29, 2016

The deadly attack in the Istanbul airport late Tuesday, suspected to be the work of the ISIS, comes as the terrorist group today marks the second anniversary of the declaration of its Islamic “caliphate,” or kingdom.

In that time, the group has gone from obscurity, mocked by President Barack Obama as a terrorist “JV team,” to the world’s most brutal terrorist network, not only responsible for thousands of deaths in the Middle East but also linked to hundreds more in dozens of terrorist plots in the West.

ISIS currently controls thousands of square miles in Iraq and Syria, though the U.S. military says the group been pushed out of swaths of land, especially in Iraq, since a territorial high point in late summer 2014.

In January of that year in a New Yorker profile, Obama made the “JV team” remark. Administration officials have since said it was not specifically about ISIS but about various extremist groups.

At the time, ISIS was not a household name. Even when the group declared its “caliphate” on June 29, 2014, in an audio message, relatively few in the West outside counterterrorism circles took notice — though the rare public appearance of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in Mosul, Iraq, a few days later raised some eyebrows.
