Commander in Chief Zero

WASHINGTON, August 29, 2013 — Some conservatives like to mock Barack Obama.  Well, that really isn’t too hard.  Some call him, “Zero” as a take off on his “O” logo.

Zero in math stands for a nullity.  In math, zero means nothing occupies that particular spot. Those definitions fit Barack Obama very well. But now we can say that as a Commander in Chief, he is less than zero.

What has he done now?

Several days ago, chemical weapons were used in Syria. Obama wasted no time jumping on the bandwagon to help the Islamists in Syria, even though there is a lot of finger pointing and a startling lack of conclusive evidence as to who used the chemical weapons.

This, Obama said, crossed a red line and there must be action.

Unless you have been watching non-stop reruns of Miley Cyrus’ twerking buttocks, you already know what that military response is going to be. Obama is going to order the American military to fire missiles into Syria for two or three days.  As one media outlet reported, they want the attack to be just muscular enough so that no one mocks Obama.

Earth to President O: The world is already mocking you.

Bashar al-Assad and the Syrian leadership are not stupid people.  What they are is motivated people because they have a pretty good idea what would happen to them and their families if the Islamists win.

Obama has been rattling his saber for almost a week.

Everyone who knows anything in the administration has been leaking to the media everything but the start time for the attacks. The proposed targets are known, including aircraft and Russian made helicopters.

Do President O and his merry band of nitwits think that Assad and the Syrians have simply been watching the Star Trek rerun marathon for the last week?


For the last week, the Syrians have been reaching out to the Russians, Chinese, Iranians, anyone who does not like America, anyone who could help them. 

Syria has been preparing their defenses and protecting everything they can.

Does anyone remember the last “warrior” Democrat in the White House? That would be Bill Clinton. When he was not having Monica Lewinsky twerk on him, he was shooting millions of dollars worth of cruise missiles into the Sudan, blowing up an aspirin factory and empty tents in Afghanistan. 

He did order a major air assault against Serbia that resulted in two American planes being shot down. One of them was at the time, the very secret F-117 stealth jet. The Serbians wasted no time in making sure our adversaries were allowed to inspect the wreckage.  

The only real accomplishment that came out of the Serbian air campaign was that we managed to bomb the Chinese Embassy, causing a major diplomatic incident. 

One of the fundamental elements of any military action is surprise.  

Thanks to President O, we have no surprise going into Syria. Even the British are now wisely rethinking military action against Syria.

The best-case scenario is that Obama fires cruise missiles into Syria at targets that have been protected or relocated. The best-case scenario will only cost millions of dollars the military can ill afford as Obama guts the defense budget.

A worst-case scenario is Obama puts American aircraft over Syria, in which case it is an almost certainty that at least one of them will be shot down. The American people will be given the spectacle of dead American pilots or even worse, captured Americans.

The capture of American pilots in Syria would be even worse because that would be the excuse Obama needs to put boots on the ground in Syria and start yet another war.

Syria is a fight where America has no interest and where thanks to Obama, we have blown any chance for military advantage.

But the best quote of all about this came from of all people Dennis Kucinich, who warned that if we attack, we will become Al-Qaeda’s Air Force.

Perhaps that is President O’s end game.

Judson Phillips is the founder of Tea Party Nation, one of the largest Tea Party Groups in the country and the number one national tea party site on the Internet.

A lawyer by profession, Judson has been involved in politics since his teens. “Ronald Reagan inspired me,” he says.

Judson became involved in the Tea Party movement in February 2009 after hearing Rick Santelli’s rant on CNBC.   “I heard there was going to be a Tea Party in Chicago inspired by Santelli, but didn’t know if anyone was doing a rally in Nashville where I was based.  Finally I emailed Michelle Malkin and asked her if there was a Tea Party in Nashville.  Malkin sent an email back saying, ‘No, why don’t you organize one?’  I did.”

The first Tea Party in Nashville was held late February 2009 which drew a crowd of about 600. Judson then organized the Tax Day Tea Party in Nashville, which drew over 10,000 people into downtown.   It was at this time that Tea Party Nation was formed.  Later that year, Judson decided to bring activists from across the country together, so he organized the first National Tea Party Convention in February 2010, which featured Alaska’s former Governor and Republican Vice Presidential Nominee, Sarah Palin as it’s keynote speaker.

He currently manages the Tea Party Nation website, writes several daily columns and is working on more projects than any one person should.  He is a frequent guest on cable and broadcast news shows, including on Fox, MSNBC, CNN and others.
