Joel Rosenberg: The President of the United States has absolutely no idea what he is doing in the Middle East. Mr. Obama apparently has plenty of time to play golf. Yet he refuses to invest the time and energy necessary to come up with a plan to stop — much less defeat — ISIS, despite the genocidal attacks their forces are engaged in and the grave threat they pose to Israel and our Arab allies.
“We don’t have a strategy yet,” President Obama admitted during a White House press conference on Thursday.
Why in the world not?
Others have developed sound strategies. Here are a few:

Opinion: Unfortunately, the president has a strategy on Russia’s incursion into Ukraine – Nothing, Nada, Zip-p-p
Putin must be hysterical…
