(From the very week it happened… 091612)
As I sat and watched a Fox News interview with Ambassador to the Untied Nations Dr. Susan Rice, I had a serious Obama 2008 campaign flashback. A serious flashback. I have to blame it on the brown acid.
Dr. Susan Rice stated, unequivocally, that the relationship between Israel and the United States “had never been stronger”… Never.
This is when everything got too colorful and the fern in the corner began to chant… “if not now, when?” It was the same collective chant of Obama voters from his inauguration.
Pulling myself together, I thought about what the fern was saying.
The follow-up question that was not asked by Chris Wallace was “When has it been weaker Dr. Rice?”
When has the relationship been in a situation that the Muslim Brotherhood is orchestrating a multinational consolidation of Islamo-Fascist Radicals with the ultimate goal of creating their own version of a Sharia based European Union known as a Caliphate? When has the collected enemies of Israel been so numerous, and cooperative, that the ability of her to defend herself was seriously in question? And when has the U.S. leadership been so overt about making a point to anybody listening that she will stand by and watch when the whole region goes south?
I also thought I heard Dr. Rice say when asked about the consulate security not being increased given the number of threats and actual attacks in Benghazi that “the four men protecting the Ambassador was significant security”. Significant… Four men… The Benghazi consulate had reportedly suffered five attacks in the recent months. A four-man security team, in Dr. Susan Rice’s assessment is significant.
The interview should have had a laugh track.
Just to add ignorance to idiocy, she reiterated that the Administration was sure that the extremely well executed attack on the Consulate in Benghazi was not premeditated. Yes… Clearly.
(In fact, if it was not premeditated… we have a lot more to worry about than we thought. Chew on this, if an unruly and disparate mob of protesters can throw together a coordinated, seemingly perfect, assault capable of forcing out our Ambassador and subsequently killing him and his “significant” four-man security team then think about what the trained militants can do. It could be a very long fall.)
The truth is…
The Obama Administration had no idea this was coming. They were pleased with themselves for introducing legalized mob rule… sorry… Democracy to the Middle East. They had moved on and were gearing up to “solve” the Chicago teachers strike and look “tough on Unions”. (Unfortunately, for the Obama Campaign, there is no oxygen left in the room for that charade.)
To sum it up, I’ll remind you that this is the same Administration that was going to “solve” all of our problems in the Middle East because they weren’t “cowboys” and were smarter than everybody else… no more burning of American flags, no more stamping on pictures of the President, no more chanting “Death to America”. Well… surprise. They hate us regardless of who’s in office. We told them that decades ago. (The same crap was spouted prior to Clinton’s election.)
So it seems they had their eye on the re-election ball combined with an extra dose of Fatal Conceit.
I’ll enjoy watching the tracers of these people leaving office. The fern says “It’s been a long strange trip…”
Why is my beer blue?
