President Obama appeared on Meet the Press this morning with new host Chuck Todd. The conversation focused primarily on ISIS, Iraq and Syria. Much could be said about Obama’s comments, but what struck me most was how disassociated from reality Obama appears to be–both when he defends his own record, and when he talks about foreign policy.


Obama repeated the spin, first floated by White House spokesman Josh Earnest, that when he talked dismissively of “jayvee” terrorist groups he wasn’t referring to ISIS:



CHUCK TODD: Long way, long way from when you described them as a JV team.




CHUCK TODD: Was that bad intelligence or your misjudgment?


PRESIDENT OBAMA: Keep– keep– keep in mind I wasn’t specifically referring to ISIL.



But he was, as Paul showed here. The only example of a “jayvee” terrorist group Obama gave was the one that took Fallujah. Who took Fallujah? ISIS. Obama knows this; he is simply lying to save his own skin.

President Obama on the poor optics of rushing off to make tee time immediately after his public statement about James Foley:


“I should’ve anticipated the optics,” Obama said in an appearance on NBC’s “Meet the Press” set to air Sunday.


“Part of this job is also the theater of it,” Obama said, adding that “it’s not something that always comes naturally to me. But it matters.”


The president has to mentally remind himself of the “theater” of his job Scissors-32x32.png
