Obama returns to ‘more jobs to keep people from wanting to join ISIS’ insanity

When you’re completely devoid of real-world ideas, you return to stuff like this:

President Obama called upon a conclave of world leaders on Tuesday to fight violent extremism not just with weapons but with ideas, jobs and good governance, a strategy he has long advocated. There are few signs that it is succeeding.

Military pressure, Mr. Obama said at a United Nations summit meeting, will be insufficient to vanquish groups like the Islamic State, also known as ISIS and ISIL.

“This means defeating their ideology,” he said. “Ideologies are not defeated with guns. They are defeated by better ideas — a more attractive and compelling vision.”

I’m officially at a loss for words and he’s still got over a year to make things worse.
