Pres. Obama insults and words

Reader comment on item: ISIS Is Not Islamic?

Submitted by sid goldfarb md (United States), Sep 13, 2014 at 08:36

The President likes to use words , such as "JV" and says that ISIL is not "Islamic", and I think that he uses insults to insult people or organizations that he dislikes. This is of course schoolyard or basketball court taunting or trash talk. "Sticks and stones will hurt my bones but words will never hurt me", is the old saying, and therefore insulting and simple words ,not backed by concrete action, will be futile, and opponents now see that the President uses word insteads of sticks.

At AIPAC in 2008, Obama had just sewn up the dem nomination, and he said that he would do "everything" to prevent Iran from getting a bomb. He said "everything" 3 times , and at that point I realized that he would say everything and do nothing.
