Obama & Ebola, Obamacare News, Don't Know Much About History

Obama Puts Boots On The Ground -- In Western Africa 

President Obama announced a new plan today to put boots on the ground, up to 3,000 American troops. . . to fight the Ebola epidemic. Over the years, books and movies have speculated about Ebola escaping the jungles of Africa and spreading throughout the world. I couldn't help but have a visceral reaction to this news this morning, not to mention all the irony and contradictions that it represents. 

Terror On The Border, Benghazi's Back, Crosses and Mosques

Terror On The Border And Abroad 

Border Patrol agents reportedly found a banner posted on the Mexican side of the border fence in the Yuma sector. It condemned U.S. support for Israel, called for a free Palestinian state and threatened terrorism. The banner was placed on the border fence on 9/11.

Obama's Strategy 

President Obama delivered a prime-time address to the nation last night laying out his strategy for confronting ISIS (ISIL). Reaction to the president's address was mixed.

President Obama will address the nation tonight, perhaps offering his strategy for defeating ISIS. Some analysts believe the president has an opportunity to revive himself. Polls indicate that the public is primed for action. The question is whether Obama will deliver.

The Great Foreign Policy Debate 

President Obama is huddling with congressional leaders today, outlining his newly developed strategy for combating the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, which he once dismissed as a "JV" team. Tomorrownight Mr. Obama will share those plans with the rest of the country.

Victory -- For Now 

Facing intense political pressure, President Obama announced over the weekend that he won't issue a unilateral amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants . . . before the election. One commentator said that if Democrats lose the Senate this November, the White House doesn't want to see headlines blaming Obama's amnesty as the reason. 

During his interview with Obama, Meet The Press host Chuck Todd suggested this delay was all about politics. Obama insisted otherwise, saying:

Bush Was Right, Scandal Update, Join Me In D.C.

Bush Was Right 

George W. Bush deserves a tip of the hat. Here's what the "prophet" Bush said in 2007 about the dangers of a premature withdrawal from Iraq:

The Broken Trumpet 

President Obama has made a lot of gaffes lately, especially for someone who has come so far on the strength of his oratorical skills. Last week he said he had no strategy for dealing with the Islamic State -- a remark that left Pentagon officials "apoplectic."
