    In the meantime, Obama is distracting the liberal base from his foreign policy failures by releasing felons from prison.

    ^ Well, he would have pardoned some imprisoned bankers, but there weren’t any.

    I only have one question: When was the U.S. designated by the U.N., NATO, or even the Vatican as the world’s policeman, or Dictator?

    In 1972 there were 300,000 Americans behind bars. The population has grown by 50% since then, so, all other things being equal, we should now have 450,000 behind bars. We actually, in 2014, have 2,300,000 behind bars, or 5 times as many. That’s means about one out of every 150 Americans is incarcerated. How many out of the other 149 are employed paying for, or being paid for, keeping those folks in jail.

    Perhaps it would be a good idea to release some more.

    We hear about Obama’s, Clinton’s, and Carter’s foreign policy failures. Question: How did Reagan, Bush, and Bush distract voters from their foreign policy failures?? Let’s be honest. The US’s overall foreign policy has been failing us for a very, very long time.

    “Hillary’s mess.” No, it’s not her mess.

    “Try something simple for a change”?
    #
    I guess passing yet another bill (what is the number of times now, 1000?) in the House to defund, dismantle, and essentially kill the Affordable Care Act will be simple enough. Let’s keep that going and ignore all those “jobs, jobs, jobs “the Republicans promised some time ago: and keep going and going and going…

    You want more amiable/solvable problems….

    LOOK IN YOUR OWN BACKYARD!!!!!!

    There are enough domestic issues to keep Washington D.C. busy for decades, and hey domestic issues do not throw bombs.

    Nice summary.
    Multi-tasking presidents address more than one issue concurrently. Apparently this is a problem for single-issue commenters. In which case, every second issue is a distraction from their primary focus – Benghazi!

    You must read Rise to Globalism. Pearl Harbor showed that the seas no longer protect the US from attack. The Reds, the Russkies, the Chinese, the Muslims, the Latins, the entire world wants to invade and conquer the US, and the US must remain vigilant. Preferably by turning the rest of the world into a US neo-colony. It’s the ONLY way the US can be safe.

    Glad to see he now has a reason to. He has been very stingy before, more so than previous Republicans.

    But then all presidents in recent memory do this. Sad but true.

    Also since the US is partisan to Israel they are not the ones to negotiate. You have to be non partisan or biased in favor of either.

    Assuming that is Uncle Sam, not the Secretary of State, Lurch Kerry, my advice is to check out the source of all the violence in the Mideast, in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, shown in the cartoon. In fact, the source is creating violence all around this earth…and it is not America and it is not Israel that is the armed aggressor.
    -
    Lurch and our president are trying to force Israel to give more land away (free, no strings attached), to their dedicated exterminators, who falsely call themselves “Palestinians”….but who really are Arab/Muslims who came to God’s Promised Land (promised to Jews) very late in history. US policy is wrong to side with Arab “occupiers” (Jordan kept Israel’s lands from 1948 to 1967). God will punish all who try to divide His land to benefit enemies of God’s Chosen Nation….especially whoever tries to divide Jerusalem, God’s earthly Capitol, and give it to Haters of Jews. No wonder violence grows, it feeds on Hate of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

    The US has been invading or threatening most of the countries on earth ever since it came into being. But been very busy in the 20th & 21st centuries.
