For a third time, the campaign promise made by Team Obama/Biden during the 2012 presidential race has been matter-of-factly relegated to the dustbin of politics as usual. While Joe Biden’s promise to the American people that all US troops would be out of Afghanistan, in Biden’s words, “We are leaving in 2014. Period,” the truth of the matter is that particular Democratic Party talking point has proven itself to be a blatant lie.
While breaking news travels literally at the speed of light, the hours-old announcement by Barack Obama that American combat troops are not only going to remain in Afghanistan, but staying in-country even after he leaves the White House, is arguably considered by many as old news. Despite the Commander-in-Chief’s announcement widely reported by the legacy media, what’s not being mentioned is that Team Obama promised on live television that American troops would be out of the Central Asian nation as of 2014.

The national media and the Washington insiders from both parties can’t seen to figure out why the likes of Donald Trump, Ben Carson, Carly Fiorina, even non-conformist the likes of Senators Bernie Sanders and Ted Cruz are resonating with so many voters. Yet the same voters from Portland, Maine to Portola Valley, California are making it known that same old, same old from inside the DC beltway simply isn’t going to fly anymore.

Even during the happiest of circumstances, sometimes the water-induced wrinkled head of the past rears its ugly self exactly at the wrong time. Accusations of a buck naked Joe Biden swimming laps au naturel on a number of occasions would be one of those prune-skinned moments. If the thought of naked 72-year-old man isn’t enough to make his Secret Service detail have the uncontrollable urge to iron everything in sight, the knowledge that the Veep has both male and female agents assigned to him kicks the eew-factor up a few notches.
While the list of Republican presidential candidates starts to look more and more like the New York City Yellow Pages, the situation in the Democratic Party could very possibly be described as an increasingly paranoid Hillary Clinton looking over her shoulder. As the Fox News Channel’s chief White House correspondent details, the Clinton campaign is “increasingly nervous” that socialist Bernie Sanders isn’t the only threat to what was previously seen as a party nomination that was her’s for the taking.
Speaking as the featured eulogist at the funeral of Delaware’s late Attorney General Joseph “Beau” Biden III, Barack Obama said to the assembled crowd that Biden was a selfless son and consummate public servant, as reported by the Associated Press (via the El Paso Times) on June 6, 2015. The 46-year-old son of Vice President Joe Biden was seen as a rising star in the Democratic Party with his eyes set on the Delaware governor’s mansion in his sights next year, as well as rumors circulating that the eldest son of the Veep would possibly make a run at the White House in 2024.
The standing joke in the world of politics is that campaign promises are often broken. But much like the old school Mafiosos unwritten law that women and kids are off limits, it’s widely understood within the Washington, DC belt line that our troops in uniform aren’t to have their collective fates carelessly bandied about in the form of balloon juice by any given politician.
In excerpts of former CIA Director and Secretary of Defense Bob Gates’ memoir “Duty: Memoirs of a Secretary at War,” the former Sec Def doesn’t quite hold back exactly he perceived the Obama White House’s treatment of military leaders, as reported by both The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) and The Washington Post (WaPo) on Jan. 7, 2014.
What should have come as the first overt sign, one of the few times Barack Obama spoke off the cuff, sans teleprompter, he quipped during a slight rain exactly how he feels of those who serve our nation in the Uniformed Services.
On the heels of the news of al-Qaeda terrorists capturing the same Iraqi cities American troops and their allies fought so hard to free, a British editor is predicting that after the NATO troop withdrawal from Afghanistan, the Taliban eventually will retake control of Helmand province, as reported by Britain’s Sky News Service on Jan. 7, 2014.
“To find them with their backs against the wall and abandoned …”
As reported by USA Today on Jan. 6, 2014, in the wake of Iraqi’s Anbar province recently falling to al-Qaeda terrorists, American veterans of the hard fought victories have referred to the area as “hallowed” ground, yet Joe Biden recently referred to the withdrawal as one of Barack Obama’s “great achievements” (click here for video).
Just Joe being Joe…
The Vice President of the United States hasn’t even been in Japan more than 12 hours and he’s already found a way not only to insult Japanese women, but women everywhere, as reported by the right-of-center news portal Breitbart.com on Dec. 3, 2013.
Biden is currently touring the Orient to quell rising tensions between China and its neighbors over the Chinese recently claiming certain international airspace as their own, as well as airspace over sovereign Japanese soil over the Senkaku Islands.
