Judge Jeanine rips apart ‘Obama-speak’ strategy: Mr. President, we’re not winning!

Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro ripped apart President Obama’s inconsistent strategy for dealing with the Islamic State on Saturday, breaking her final message down into words that should be devastating for any world figure – much less an American president:

“You’re not a serious leader.”

Pirro kicked off the “Opening Statement” on “Justice with Judge Jeanine” by outlining the situation of more than 300 Marines stationed at the al Asad air base in Iraq — Marines who repelled an attack Friday by Islamic State fighters clad in Iraqi army uniforms.

Those Marines deserve better than they’re getting from Obama’s Pentagon, she said.

“We’re setting ourselves up for a loss of American lives,” she said.

Pirro detailed the numerous recent failures of what passes for foreign policy in the Obama administration. Last week’s abandonment of the United States embassy in Yemen was symbolic of the shambles, she said – Obama once hailed Yemen as an example of the success of his anti-terrorism strategy.

And even Obama’s request for congressional authorization to use for against the Islamic State – a “request” that comes months after combat operations commenced – has been as feckless as the rest of his moves, Pirro said. What it said the United States is not willing to do – expand the war with American ground troops, for instance – shows it for the political theater it is.

“You’re not a serious leader,” Pirro said. “You keep telling the enemy what we’re going to do and not do.”

Serious is the one thing this president is not – at least when it comes to targeting foes that aren’t in the Republican Party, aren’t on Fox News, and aren’t named Rush Limbaugh.

The real enemy — radical Islamist terrorism — he can’t name at all.
