As if things weren’t bad enough for the White House regarding the new threat of war in the Middle East, the GOP continues to badger the President over what his plans are regarding the Islamic State militants.
The problems are that the GOP has been gnawing at the White House regarding the exact plans Obama has to handle the threat. The US, now tired of constant war and failing miserably at recovering from its own collapsing infrastructure is being worn down by no concrete data from the White House regarding the issue. Senate Democrats are worried that any decisions or actions will jeopardize their hold in the upcoming elections and a failure at this time by Obama could wipe out any chance of Democratic supremacy come Autumn.
Both sides are cautious regarding making so many definitive statements as any foul ups could jeopardize either side. The GOP is hoping the White House will foul up and give them easy victories and the Democrats are hoping the White House can fend off Republican attacks, growing public disapproval, and any military mistakes before election time or the Democratic hold on the Senate will be sunk.
Obama’s present strategies seem to be working with air strikes and arming Syrian rebels with major gains against ISIS in Iraq. Republicans are cautious not to be too critical but Obama’s reluctance to send in armed troops has so far proven effective. Americans want no more war and casualties and definitely don’t want to spend more money on the Middle East conflicts as poverty is running rampant with little or no hope for future recovery as long as they’re involved in Middle East conflicts.
That being said, as time grows short, more members of both political parties will have to make more stronger stances on their viewpoints and positions as the crisis continues. By the time of the November elections there will be a clear cut look ahead at victory and a stronger support of Democrats or a prolonged and drawn out series of conflicts that won’t do well for the Democrats.
