That Was The Summer That Was

Now that Labor Day is behind us and the kids are back in school, it's time to look back at barack obama's summer of 2014.
Terrorists announced a new caliphate in Syria and Iran, as Vlad the Shirtless warned of possible nuclear exchanges in Europe.

All-out war erupted between Israel and Hamas, and the entire Middle East seemed to fall apart faster than an Obamacare promise.

Rioting broke out in the Midwest. (For a while it was hard to tell if the video footage was from the Middle East or the Middle West.)

An Ebola outbreak killed thousands in Africa.

The U.S. economy continued to stumble...

... news outlets were concerned about Obama's admission that he didn't have a strategy to deal with ISIL. Obama didn't have a strategy? This is news?

Tens of thousands of illegal immigrants swarmed across the country's southern border. Republicans called it a crisis; Democrats called it voter registration.

During the height of the controversy, Obama went to Texas. Not to view the crisis first-hand as he had been urged to do, but to attend a fund-raiser...

In a brief return to Washington between swanky fund-raisers, Obama excoriated Congress for going off on vacation while there was work to be done. And, then, promptly … went off on vacation.
 obama's response to all these crises?
...Obama played more rounds of golf this summer than Tiger Woods.

We might barely be able to survive barry if the rest of the world would just leave us alone.
