Enough already. “Knowledgeable people were calling for Obama to begin air strikes against the Islamic State barbarians months before Obama could rouse himself to admit that the brutes were something other than ‘jayvee’ terrorists. Because he didn’t, thousands of innocents died, villages were razed, churches were destroyed, thousands more were left homeless, and vast swaths of territory were lost to purveyors of pure, unadulterated evil. . . . But it’s not only the security of allies that Obama endangers. His deliberate creation of an ever-more-porous southern border is allowing criminals in by the score, or maybe by the hundreds, alongside, almost assuredly, terrorists as well. Obama, though, keeps whining and dining and vacationing and playing golf, with his weak-looking swing, either oblivious or indifferent to the dangers to which he is subjecting Americans.” And he is just getting warmed up. Read the whole thing.

Enough partisanship. Both Republicans and Democrats agree: ” President Barack Obama faced criticism over his foreign policy from both Democratic and Republican lawmakers on Sunday as he wrestled with crises in IraqSyriaLibya and Ukraine.”

Enough circling the wagons. “The Democratic revolt continues: Key senator calls for Obama to arm Ukraine.” Now they need to revolt on our Iran policy.

Enough shutdown talk. “Almost a year since the last partial government shutdown began, many House Republicans say they have little desire to start another. With one month before the government’s funding runs out on Sept. 30, Republicans said they expect to pass a short-term spending measure to prevent a high-stakes clash just before November’s midterm elections. ‘There is virtually no appetite for getting anywhere close to a shutdown this year,’ said Rep. John Campbell (R., Calif.), reflecting a view widely expressed in recent interviews with GOP aides and lawmakers across the ideological spectrum, including some who voted against the bill that ended last fall’s shutdown.”

Enough narcissism. please. “The ability to read other people comes more easily if you’re interested in others, curious to learn what makes them tick. It comes harder or not at all if you’re transfixed with your image of yourself. Which seems to be the case with Barack Obama. . . . He is also, as even his admirers concede, not much inclined to schmooze with other politicians, even his fellow Democrats. . . . Bill Clinton and Rudy Giuliani succeeded in large part because they were curious about other people different from themselves. Barack Obama prefers to look in the mirror.”

Enough UNRWA. “So now there are two compelling reasons to end UNRWA. Its cooperation with Hamas, and the way in which it has been permeated by Hamas, constitute one reason. The second is that UNRWA is engaged in the perpetuation and expansion of the ‘Palestinian refugee problem’ rather than its solution.” Read the rest.

Enough crackpottery. “Dr. Carson’s rhetoric is unhinged. If he really believes what he says–if he can’t distinguish between Germany under Hitler and America under Obama–he’s not to be taken seriously. It would mean his sense of reality is massively distorted, that he’s living in a world of make-believe. And if he doesn’t believe what he says but is simply saying it to win the hearts of some on the right, he’s unusually irresponsible and cynical. . . . Dr. Carson really needs to stop with America-is-like-Nazi-Germany comparisons.”
