Ralph Peters is a John Bolton type of a foreign policy analyst for Fox News. A Peggy Noonan styled overwrought wingnut lyricist, who tries his best to sound intelligent, but always come off with an intellect that's maniacally stunted. Since it's the Summer of Hate 2.0, conservatives have been whipping up their hatred of Obama at an accelerated pace (which is hard to believe) due to the migrant children refugees, Israel's incursion into Gaza and the downing of Malaysian Flight M-17. Their criticisms have gone from Obama being an imperialistic president, a disengaged man, a law breaker not born in the U.S., to creating an alien invasion at our southern border. Now its morphed into "he's a frightened man, who's really a coward" that's afraid Vladimir Putin will beat him up and take his milk money. Peters was speaking to Megyn Kelly Monday night and was hyperventilating over his fictitious fears.

Peters: There are really many things he could do, but he's like a deer caught in the head lights. You know, even though he's president of the United State , to me it would be a hellish thing to live which such timidity, to be such a frightened man, I really feel that on a visceral level on a profound level. President Obama is scared of Vladimir Putin.

Kelly: Is he scared of him or is he scared of involving the U.S> militarily in more places?

Peters: He is certainly an anti-military president, there's no question about that

You can tell that Peters worked on his talking points all day before he joined Megyn.

Peters: the conviction that he military is never the answer to any of the world's problems therefore we saw him unwilling to try and rescue our people in Benghazi, unwilling to engage in Syria, unwilling to so much as send a single drone against the Islamic State...

Kelly:He used the military in Libya Ralph, but...

These displays of faux outrage must only appeal to the hard core Bill O'Reilly demographic because they are simply hair-brained. Peters says the military isn't the answer to all our problems and then lists all the ways Obama should have engaged the military.
