Take the fight to our enemy before that enemy brings the fight here!
President Bush was right to go after the Muslim threat after 911.
Our military warned Barack Obama about removing all military from Iraq.
Obama did it anyway!
ISIS was allowed to grow stronger and Barack Hussein Obama does not care...!
I believe the Muslim growth in our country and the chance of attack under this Obama administration is almost certain.

Instead of telling us what we already know, It's time to get the President to sit down, stop thinking about golf, or fundraising.
...It's time to solve a problem and act like a president. And the only way to stop this group is to kill every last one of them....and their goat.

If we get attacked on our soil this will be a direct result of our leaders in action.

They would not be a threat at all if we would do like we did years ago when this nation did not accept threats and that is to go in and wipe them out.
The trouble today is we have a weak wrist-ed leader that if anything is on there side.
We use to be fire and brimstone now we are pacifists and BS Artists.

Sadly, it seems our politicians are a little slow in seeing what is going on! When Obama keeps CUTTING our military back below a safe level, and keeps wanting to take of all of the muslims in the world, WE ARE GOING TO PAY A VERY BIG PRICE! Our military brave already KNOW about the threat, why does the idiots in Washington not see it, and why do they follow this fool?

Hagel said ISIS is a bigger threat than any we have ever seen before...

While Obama golfs in the Hampstons on taxpayer backs and attends one DNC Fundraiser after the other... non-stop for 6-years... and counting.

"I'm not pouring ice on my head to support ALS. I'll make a donation". Way to go Mr. President. Show just what kind of jerk you are and have been since your days as Barry Obama.
