Greek column offensive? White House to use more Obama ‘theater’ in counterterrorism effort

“It is an unfortunate fact that we can secure peace only by preparing for theatrics” – John F. Kennedy’s high school drama teacher


Whenever a poll comes out that shows a liberal initiative is unpopular, Democrats often attribute that to a failure to “effectively communicate the message.” This latest head-scratcher from the White House is similar. You see, the problem isn’t that the terrorism threat has not been contained, but that Obama hasn’t conveyed that message through words and photo ops effectively enough to make the terrorists believe it. Those days are over — your days are numbered, ISIS!

Acknowledging privately that he flubbed his initial response to the Paris attacks, Obama’s aides are hoping to add more theater to his counterterrorism response. The actual strategy isn’t changing much. But with White House aides saying they feel that Americans are more worried about the immediate threat of terrorism in the wake of Paris and San Bernadino than at any point since 9/11, there will be more events like Obama’s visits to the Pentagon and the National Counterterrorism Center this week — meetings that would likely be happening anyway, but that will be deliberately pushed into public view, with the president making sure to speak more passionately himself.

Fortunately for this administration, “theater” is their wheelhouse:


Maybe the new spending bill contains money for the weaponization of histrionics.
