Wag The Dog
Wag The Dog: To 'wag the dog' means to purposely divert attention from what would otherwise be of greater importance, to something else of lesser significance. By doing so, the lesser-significant event is catapulted into the limelight, drowning proper attention to what was originally the more important issue.
The expression comes from the saying that 'a dog is smarter than its tail', but if the tail were smarter, then the tail would 'wag the dog'. http://www.usingenglish.com/reference/idioms/wag+the+dog.html
President gives a pretty bad speech regarding Isis, the muslim terrorist organization, which, according to Obama, is not muslim. Umm, ok. Muslims have been committing all kinds of atrocities throughout the centuries and there are still muslims committing horrible crimes in the name of islam. The muslims who kidnapped the girls in Nigeria and whose cause Michelle Obama championed and now the girls are forgotten by Obama and the democrats.
Anyways, Obama is going through the motions on this war thing and is diverting attention away from many things that are going on in this country.
Like immigration. Obama is about sign executive orders after the elections to most likely grant amnesty to the illegals: past, present and future. Obama actions are highly unpopular with Americans, so this war thing will divert attention away from this unpopular action by Obama.
The border and the illegal children living here. Another Obama failure that will be hidden from view once the bombing starts.
Michelle Obama's failed school lunch program of giving kids sticks of wood to eat instead good hot lunches. More and more schools are doing away with the federal lunch program, thousands up thousands fewer kids are eating school lunch because of Obama. This failed liberal policy will be hidden once the bombs drop.
The poor economy also will be kicked to back burner. With the exception of the stock market, the rest of the economy is still bad, with massive unemployment, record numbers of people not working, massive amount of people on government welfare (and businesses as well) and a huge amount of people who live in poverty. While the liberal media says everything is going just great, the reality is that we are very close to another disaster in the economy.
ObamaCare: Need I say more? And thousands more will lose their insurance before the elections.
The elections are coming up and Obama will probably start a big bombing campaign just before the November elections to get support for the democrats.
So, like most other programs Obama has started and mostly failed at, the programs were done for political reasons.
And so will this war against the muslim terrorist group, isis.
So, Obama will be wagging his doggy big time in the next few weeks.
