Opinion – GOP candidates to Obama: Too little, too late – The Washington Post

The Washington Post claims that the GOP candidates characterized Obama‘s response to the Islamic State as not only feckless but also overtly partisan.

The body of the article covered similar ground to the earlier article in the NYT.

Personally, in my mind I associated ‘partisan’ with being a passionate supporter of a party or cause, so I checked the definition, which courtesy of Google I’m sharing below:
  1. 1.
    a strong supporter of a party, cause, or person.
    “partisans of the exiled Stuarts
  2. 2.
    a member of an armed group formed to fight secretly against an occupying force, in particular one operating in German-occupied Yugoslavia, Italy, and parts of eastern Europe in the Second World War.
    “the partisans opened fire from the woods”
    synonyms: guerrilla, freedom fighter, resistance fighter, member of the resistance,underground fighter, irregular soldier, irregular;

    “the partisans opened fire from the woods”
  1. 1.
    prejudiced in favour of a particular cause.
    “newspapers have become increasingly partisan”
    synonyms: biased, prejudiced, one-sided, coloured, discriminatory, preferential,partial, interested, parti pris, bigoted, sectarian, factional, unjust,unfair, inequitable, unbalanced

    “the government had adopted a blatantly partisan attitude”

    Was this a pun by the Washington Post or a deliberate editorial escalation?

    Just how biased, prejudiced and one-sided are Obama’s views on radical Islamatic terrorism?


One response

  1. President Obama often behaves more like a Sunni Muslim than a Christian president. His given name at one point was Barry Sotero and he has made no secret of the fact that he wants Assad removed and Syria Balkanised into 3 powerless mini-states.

    He studiously ignores military advice from the Pentagon about how to deal with ISIS and on the basis that you can judge a man by his actions rather than mere words one can see that he favours the Saudi Arabia and the Gulf States who finance ISIS and are major buyers of America armanents rather than dealing with ISIS.
