It’s inappropriate for the President to attack the FOX News Network so particularly because, until his rhetorical vehemence for the actual enemies of his administration and, presumably, this country matches that which he lays on his online and on-air political detractors, he will continue to make indulging his own personal umbrage apparently more important to him than correctly condemning the words and actions of anti-American psychotics like Ahmadinejad.
Besides, letting people know how much they annoy you is weak. Barry’s so thin-skinned he’s bound to be embarrassed.
I’m watching ABC’s This Week with Christiane Amanpour for the first time and I must say that she certainly knows how to take on the enemies of America: Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Christine O’Donnell.
If Ms. Amanpour’s understanding of what the Tea Party really is were any slighter, she’d have to nail it to her own head to keep it from floating away.
Incidentally, why is the chairman of the Delaware Republican Party allowing himself to be used like this? Are the Republicans playing the biggest good cop-bad cop routine ever? Why else is this clown on the panel to contribute to the ad hominem attacks on someone who is now, like it or not, his own nominee?
It’s no surprise that the Obamatons would be unable, after more than seven years of falsely claiming that George W. Bush was a new Hitler who was trampling the Constitution and running a police state, to recognize an actual police state killing protesters in Iran. These Democratic partisans are as ignorant and cowardly as the narcissistic liar they elected to the White House. None of them is capable of standing up against authoritarianism because they wish to have that same system implemented here in the new socialist paradise they seek for America.
History will condemn Barack Hussein Obama for backing the mullahs in the Iranian Revolution of 2009.
Earlier this evening, I tried to learn from his fanatic followers what good reason Obama has for his weak and insipid statements on the unrest in Iran —but no one could come up with anything. Well, actually, one guy brought up Mossadegh and 1953, but that chapter in Iranian history is vastly less relevant than anti-American goatee-strokers wish it to be. Iranians don’t care what the CIA did there in the 1950s, but they do care about what can be done now with 1979, which is where their country has been mouldering away for too long.
It’s quite clear that Obama’s fantasy of getting elected President (formerly also known as the Leader of the Free World) never included any thoughts of actually standing up for the universal rights of liberty and self-rule. There was a time, of course, when such ideals were as natural with Democrats as anything else identifiably American, but that’s all been traded in now. And for what? Miserable lives as totalitarian groupies, apparently. The idiots now calling themselves Democrats or “progressives” are as indifferent to the fate of free peoples elsewhere in the world as any isolationist here ever was. They are as much a disgrace as their lord and savior —content with voting present on one of the great potential movements of this decade.
Oh —and is there anything my racism can’t explain? Never! Any criticism of the growing Socialism in this country or anger at the systematic dismantling of our strategic strength in the world is simply rebutted by cries of racism. I don’t know how much longer these mindless drones can keep that particular charge going, but it’s sure to be a laugh to see them use it one time too many, but time and time again.
Among the many bizarre and inexplicable things Joe Biden said in last night’s debate, I nominate his brief history of modern Lebanon as the shiningest example:
When we kicked — along with France, we kicked Hezbollah out of Lebanon, I said and Barack said, “Move NATO forces in there. Fill the vacuum, because if you don’t know — if you don’t, Hezbollah will control it.”
Now what’s happened? Hezbollah is a legitimate part of the government in the country immediately to the north of Israel.
Has Biden gone mad? I ask this sincerely. Does he have some sort of organic brain disorder that would compel him to make such demonstrably untrue claims? Unbelievable. Read Michael J. Totten’s incredulous response:
What on Earth is he talking about? The United States and France may have kicked Hezbollah out of Lebanon in an alternate universe, but nothing even remotely like that ever happened in this one.
Nobody – nobody – has ever kicked Hezbollah out of Lebanon. Not the United States. Not France. Not Israel. And not the Lebanese. Nobody.
Joe Biden has literally no idea what he’s talking about.
Moreover, I have never once heard anything about Obama calling for NATO intervention in Lebanon. When did such a thing happen? When the Second Lebanon War broke out in the summer of 2006, was Obama really calling for NATO to keep the peace in Lebanon? Call me crazy, but I think that’s utter nonsense.
Needless to say, Big Media is far too busy fellating Obamachrist to question Biden’s hallucinatory account. Equally needless to add, although I must, is that such claims, had they been made by Hillary Clinton or Sarah Palin, would have drawn derisive howls from such miserable fluffers as David Gergen and Anderson Cooper and the other Leftist craphounds at CNN. Did the anti-American reporter Michael Ware manage to raise an eyebrow at the news that we evicted Hizballah from Lebanon? Doubt it.
In a just world, Biden’s remarks would be regarded as even weirder than Gerald Ford’s claim in his 1976 debate with Carter that there was no Soviet domination of Poland.
But this isn’t a just world.
Since Obama and his surrogates concede that he has no foreign policy experience to run on, they are obligated to say that he has the “right judgement” instead, which is a subjective dodge. But since the legend of this superior judgement is almost always invoked with regard to the War for Iraq, aren’t journalists obligated to ask Obama why he believes a non-decision about a war made almost six years ago constitutes a relevant and timely demonstration of his “right judgement”? He can’t keep going back to that well when his actual decisions about Iraq have subsequently been proven wrong.
Obama may think that he will lead us and the world into a new age of unicorns and rainbows, but he is a dumb bastard to not understand that Presidents inherit real circumstances and accomplished facts. We went into Iraq for more reasons than weapons of mass murder. It’s way past time for him and the godforsaken dolts who support him to acquaint themselves with some of those causes.
One thing I’m not worrying about is whether McCain’s people will hit back hard at Obama’s lies. Check out this dismantling of the Anointed One’s flip-floppery on designating the Iranian Revolutionary Guard as a terrorist organization. The vote went 76-22 in favor of so designating, but Obama was typically on the wrong side of the question (emphases mine):
In October 2007, Obama Described Kyl-Lieberman As A Justification For Attacking Iran. OBAMA: “[The] Bush administration could use the language in Lieberman-Kyl to justify an attack on Iran as a part of the ongoing war in Iraq.” (Sen. Barack Obama, “Five Years After Iraq War Vote, We’re Still Foolishly Rattling Our Sabers,” Manchester Union-Leader, 10/11/07)
Yet Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) Said The Kyl-Lieberman Amendment Provided No Justification For Attacking Iran. SEN. DURBIN: “If I thought there was any way [Kyl-Lieberman] could be used as a pretense to launch an invasion of Iran, I would have voted no.” (Julianna Goldman, “Durbin Says Obama Will Win Iowa Caucus; Disagrees On Iran,” Bloomberg, 10/12/07; S.3017, CQ Vote #349: Agreed To, 76-22: R 47-2; D 29-20, 9/26/07, Durbin Voted Yea.)
So why is Obama lying about the rationale for his vote? I don’t know. But he likes to hide behind the claim that he originally sponsored something else that would have achieved the same thing:
The Obama Campaign Points To Barack Obama’s Co-Sponsorship Of The Iran Counter-Proliferation Act (S.970) As Evidence That He Favors Designating The IRGC As A Terrorist Organization. “Obama Cosponsored The Iran Counter-Proliferation Act, Which Would Designate The Iranian Revolutionary Guard As A Terrorist Organization.” (”Obama Camp Response to McCain’s AIPAC Speech,” Time’s “The Page,” http://thepage.time.com, Accessed 6/2/08)
There Has Been No Floor Action On S.970 Since 3/22/07 And It Has Never Been The Subject Of A Floor Vote. (S.970, Introduced 3/22/07, Referred To The Committee On Finance, 3/22/07)
Why did Obama’s bill fail to catch on? Maybe he isn’t as post-partisan as he would like us to believe.
I thought it was a joke when I first read about it at Jim Hoft’s blog, but the Speaker of the House recently told a newspaper in her hometown:
Well, the purpose of the surge was to provide a secure space, a time for the political change to occur to accomplish the reconciliation. That didn’t happen. Whatever the military success, and progress that may have been made, the surge didn’t accomplish its goal.
And some of the success of the surge is that the goodwill of the Iranians-they decided in Basra when the fighting would end, they negotiated that cessation of hostilities-the Iranians.
Why is our Speaker of the House giving props to the Iranian government? WTF? How do these Leftist idiots live with themselves? She and Obama must be planning a surrender tour.
David Wright with ABC News was saying earlier that Obama’s policy is to not deal with Hamas because they’re not heads of state, but a terrorist group. Hmm. A very tough line to take, one would think.
But then it is also Obama’s position that, as President, he would meet with the leadership of Iran and Syria and presumably other terrorist-sponsoring states without preconditions?
Does the man who wishes to lead these 57 United States not understand that Hamas is a tool of Iran and that Iran is the actual problem?
With thanks to the Power Line boys, read this David Brooks’ column for the latest on Obama’s approach to our enemies:
“The debate we’re going to be having with John McCain is how do we understand the blend of military action to diplomatic action that we are going to undertake,” he said. “I constantly reject this notion that any hint of strategies involving diplomacy are somehow soft or indicate surrender or means that you are not going to crack down on terrorism. Those are the terms of debate that have led to blunder after blunder.”
Obama said he found that the military brass thinks the way he does: “The generals are light-years ahead of the civilians. They are trying to get the job done rather than look tough.”
What “job” have Obama and the general officers of America’s military settled on? Since the first job of our armed forces is to prosecute war against our enemies, I’d like to know what Obama means by this. Invading Pakistan? I think he’s suggested as much before, so why doesn’t he address it more fully now? Is he in favor of undermining the government of Iran since he sometimes appears to understand that they are one of those “root causes” we need to know so much more about? Let’s hear him say what he ought to be saying —now that he doesn’t need to fight for his own nomination anymore.
