We all remember when Obama said we had ISIS “contained” and then within hours the Paris attack occured. We also remember in 2007 when President George W. Bush warned us what would happen if we pulled out of Iraq too soon. President G.W. Bush said we would surrender the future of Iraq to Al Qaeda, mass killings would occur and terrorists would have a ‘safe haven’ in Iraq. BINGO! Too bad President Obama didn’t want to listen, or should we say didn’t care to listen? It all sounds too familiar doesn’t it?

Just likes kids in a candy shop at Christmas time! ISIS must be laughing their butts off. Thanks Obama for all that you do – or should I say all that you don’t do? Nice to know, that thanks to you – America is now one of the largest funders of Radical Islamic Terrorism. Who said you didn’t accomplish anything? Nice to see our American tax dollars at work too…just not for us.
