    Please explain what the incumbent could have done that would have changed ANY outcome in foreign policy. Here's a hint, you can't. Your partisan hackery comments are quite funny though how you lay blame to everyone but the GOP.

    This garbage is equivalent to any Democratic politician who uses the Video clip of the girl accidentally shooting her instructor against the GOP.
    And I will call it out as vociferously as I can also .

    Except I do blame them when they are at fault. Do not confuse dislike of socialist with a liking for the GOP.

    He could of supported, or at least let it be know that he would support, impeachment or other censure of Obama.

    I watched the ad and don't see any exploitation of Foley. Yes, there is a frame of the hooded Jihadi John or whatever his media moniker is holding his knife. The image has been all over the Internet and TV. It's a powerful reminder of what is at state in our foreign policy and why a change is needed in Washington.

    The exploitation dog isn't going to hunt.

    I'm not absolutely certain about this, but what you saw may not have been the original ad.
    I fight against the ignorant, irresponsible, and/or closed-minded.

    What do you expect when Obama gives a speech denouncing the beheading and then heads straight for the golf course where he is seen happily smiling as if he had no care in the world?

    He's not trampling on anyone's grave, is he?

    president obama does not have unlimited powers to respond to everything, he needs the legeslative branch in order to implement policy. congress is currently on its august recess.

I know you are not in the one side good one side bad ideology so I'm not accusing you of this. The failure in Washington is the fact that neither side is taking responsibility for THEIR actions and instead just chooses to lay ALL blame to the other. These elementary school antics are only going to hurt the U.S. further.
    How about the GOP pushing granny off the cliff ads the democrats the demorats ran during Bush administration. Would you agree they were in bad taste?

    Why is that wrong? It is the lack of leadership in the White House that has led to what happened to Foley and spurred on the spread of ISIS. It's fair game.
