FOX, CNN And MSNBC All Mystified By Obama’s ISIS Flip-Flop

What does it mean when the lamestream media picks up on the discrepancies in Obama’s statements to the press? Do you think Obama did this, deliberately? -LW

The cable news universe converged into a single point at 4 p.m. EST on Wednesday, with hosts on Fox News, CNN and MSNBC all simultaneously expressing confusion over President Barack Obama’s most recent flip-flop on a strategy to defeat the brutal Islamic terror group ISIS.

On Wednesday morning Obama spoke in Estonia about the need to “degrade and destroy” ISIS — right before he went on to explain his goal of “shrinking” ISIS to a “manageable problem.” By Wednesday afternoon, that disconnect was noticed by all three of the major cable networks.

“Alright, I want you to listen to something, because I’m confused,” Fox News host Neil Cauvto said, playing both clips for his audience. “Destroy or debate? A manageable problem? Maybe that is the problem . . . The president might’ve been wise to stick to his opening remarks and focus on annihilating them.”

Meanwhile, on CNN, Jake Tapper expressed similar concerns. “President Obama vowed to destroy ISIS,” he began. “But then, a few minutes later, he said the goal was to make ISIS a ‘manageable problem.’ So, which is it? . . . President Obama’s seemingly-contradictory remarks might make it difficult to know exactly what he thinks — especially after ISIS beheaded a second American.”

Even MSNBC got in on the action, with guest host Luke Russert playing both clips side-by-side. “At first, the president offered an uncompromising goal,” he said. “[But] later, the president appeared to mitigate that declaration to destroy ISIS . . . With the president already facing criticism from some lawmakers over his ISIS strategy, that remark drew further anger.”

    Is it Obama saying/doing all we hear about? Or is it the Cabal controlling him? Being threatened by Bush, Sr on inauguration day?Congress intentionally blocking almost everything, and what little he was allowed is only a watered down version? I read somewhere Obama spends a lot of time golfing. Didn’t he resign as President of the United States CORPORATION, and Boehner and Paul were really running the country? What if all this time since then he was just “coasting” until the right moment, such as the Event? Just a theory, which may or may not be true. I was at the White House Museum website recently. Under the “What’s New” section, the latest entry (August 26) shows the Oval Office empty due to cleaning. Considering all that is going on, wonder if this means anything?
    Thanks for all you do. Stay safe.

    I’m glad this site welcomes opinions because in my opinion the Pres. needs to under take a complete drug Analysis. It won’t happen and would be a fix test anyways but watching alot of his tapes raises a issue of Drug Awareness!

    I’d say it’s pretty obvious what happened. First he gave the tough guy for media consumption spiel, .. and minutes later something closer to the truth slipped out. … What’s the big mystery? .. It’s a wonder these guys don’t screw that up more often.
