Recent Comments

A couple of recent columns prompt me to blog here some comments I've made at other blogs this year.

First, Barack Obama and the CIA: why does President Pantywaist hate America so badly? by Gerald Warner, Apr. 24:

If al-Qaeda, the Taliban and the rest of the Looney Tunes brigade want to kick America to death, they had better move in quickly and grab a piece of the action before Barack Obama finishes the job himself. Never in the history of the United States has a president worked so actively against the interests of his own people - not even Jimmy Carter.
Obama's problem is that he does not know who the enemy is. To him, the enemy does not squat in caves in Waziristan, clutching automatic weapons and reciting the more militant verses from the Koran: instead, it sits around at tea parties in Kentucky quoting from the US Constitution. Obama is not at war with terrorists, but with his Republican fellow citizens. He has never abandoned the campaign trail....
President Pantywaist's recent world tour, cosying up to all the bad guys, excited the ambitions of America's enemies. Here, they realised, is a sucker they can really take to the cleaners. His only enemies are fellow Americans. Which prompts the question: why does President Pantywaist hate America so badly?

That called to mind my recent comment:

Two things America's enemies around the world have learned over the past 35 years: Republicans will fight America's enemies around the world, and Democrats will fight Republicans.

It also called to mind my comment at American Digest, March 11:

I hate to say it, but I suspect that Obama in the White House says to our enemies around the world what blood in the water says to sharks. And our enemies around the world are paying a heck of a lot more attention to his (and his associates') goofs and gaffes than most Americans are (thanks to MSM's partisan bias), and they're learning a lot. America, I fear, is going to eventually learn what it means to have a completely unqualified and wholly unprepared man as President; after which, I fear, the world will learn just how much it owed to the Pax Americana. True, I may fear too much; then again, maybe not.

Now, Itís increasingly evident that Obama should resign, by the execrable Ted Rall (of all people), May 29:

We expected broken promises. But the gap between the soaring expectations that accompanied Barack Obamaís inauguration and his wretched performance is the broadest such chasm in recent historical memory. This guy makes Bill Clinton look like a paragon of integrity and follow-through....

Here's a similar comparison of mine at Dr. Sanity's, March 2:

Who would have thought that even the Democrats could come up so soon with another politician on the national stage who is a liar as smooth, easy, and natural as Bill Clinton? They not only did it within a decade, they actually came up with somebody who, by comparison, makes Bill Clinton look like an honest man.
