I've made no secret of my admiration for Florida Congressman Allen West, and his tough, no-nonsense way of speaking...
...and West has made no secret of his disapproval of President Obama's foreign policy strategies.
In a Facebook post this afternoon, West posted a blistering critique in response to Obama's visit to Fort Bliss earlier today:
There would be no Iranian revolutionary guard forces in Syria if the Campaigner-in-Chief had listened to General Austin and maintained a residual combat presence in Iraq for the purpose of external cordon and support to the Kurds.
Iran has now extended its regional hegemonic dominance in order to support a terrorist regime and the murder of innocents by a despot in Syria. Courage and competence and critical components of leadership, horribly missing from this chap named Obama.Read the original post here.
Calling Obama a "lamb standing before lions" is a bit nicer than the many internet images I've seen labeled "President Mom Jeans," but it does aptly describe what many of us believe: that "this chap named Obama" is in over his head as Commander-in-Chief.
