Aug 30 2014 9:46am CDT | Source: Big Government

Transcript as follows: A broken clock is right twice a day. And even a president not given to truthfulness occasionally is candid. One such blue moon occurred yesterday when Barack Obama responded to questions about what his administration was going to do about the jihadist Islamic State in Iraq and Syria by saying, “We don’t have a strategy yet.” Regrettably, the same applies to other unraveling international crises. We don’t have a strategy yet for Russia’s invasion of Uk ...
