    “This is not the Iraq War of 2002, but make no mistake, we know we are at war with ISIL,” Pentagon press secretary Rear Adm. John Kirby said .

    “The United States is at war with ISIL in the same way we are at war with al Qaeda and its affiliates,” White House press secretary Josh Earnest

    David Brooks compliments Obama’s measured responses to the current upheavals of madness in the middle east—-
    Reluctant leaders think things out.

    John Boehner said ‘Well, _somebody’s_ boots have to be on the ground.’


    He neglected to say whose boots and what ground.


    Was that the Congressional debate?

    So long as it isn’t Boehner’s boots, I don’t think he cares.

    Have Boehner fill one pair, and Graham (a reservist I heard) fill another. But wearing full body armor as grunt, they might find it heavier than Boehner’s well-used golf bag.

    Hey, now! You’re only supposed to comment on Obama’s golfing, vacations, and fund raising. You’re not supposed to remember that congressional Republicans do all those things as well.

    I find it interesting that so far, everyone in the media is focused on “we are at war with ISIL” while completely ignoring the phrase immediately following it: “in the same way we are with al-Qaeda.” That’s a big qualifier, and it’s in all of the administration’s statements; that can’t be an accident. It’s part of the message.
    .
    Looking only at the first phrase, this looks like a major policy shift from the previous “counterterrorism actions” position – but if you look at the full statement, it’s no change at all. We’re practicing counterterrorism against AQ, and we’re doing the same to ISIL/ISIS. That’s as true this week as it was two weeks ago.
    .
    Am I the only one seeing this?

    That seat in the upper left is Goldman Sach’s.
