This is your brain on heavy doses of the choom.
After the first truly epic implosion in the first debate, Obama has clawed his way back in the following two, in my view. He has marshalled his arguments as potently as possible; he brought the themes of his candidacy together compellingly. His advantage on foreign policy will not, I think, diminish; it may well strengthen. And that is only just. After eight years of the most disastrous, misguided, immoral and a catastrophic foreign policy, Obama has brought the US back from the brink, presided over the decimation of al Qaeda, the liberation of Egypt, Tunisia and Libya, and restored America’s moral standing in the world.
Obama presided over the liberation of Egypt? Really? Well, if having the Muslim Brotherhood now in control of one of our former allies is a victory, fire up that bong, Andy. North Africa is essentially under control of the Islamists, Libya is an unqualified disaster and last I saw our embassy was under siege in Tunisia in the days following the Benghazi attack.
Outside of that, everything is just peachy. As to the “decimation” of al Qaeda, we suppose the “catastrophic foreign policy” put in place by Bush has nothing to do with that.
With these leftists nothing positive was accomplished during the Bush term. They convinced themselves it was “disastrous” and “misguided,” yet what has Obama done that’s much different? Well, he’s increased drone strikes (expect a lot of those the next two weeks), but that is arguably because he’s so fearful of the media portraying any incursion as a quagmire.
Not that that would have occurred with his cheering squad.
More Sully delusions:
For Romney, he made no massive mistakes. No Gerald Ford moments. And since the momentum of this race is now his, if now faltering a little, a defeat on points on foreign policy will be an acceptable result. But this was Obama’s debate; and he reminded me again of how extraordinarily lucky this country has been to have had him at the helm in this new millennium.
It’s as if Stefanie Cutter has taken over his brain. We’re extraordinarily lucky to have Obama? Sheesh. Just imagine if our economy wasn’t in shambles, he’d be hailed as the greatest preezy evah!
He’s flawed; he’s made mistakes; but who hasn’t? If this man, in these times, with this record, against this opposition, does not deserve re-election, then I am simply at a loss for words. I have to believe the American people will see that in time.
Let’s hope after November 6 he remains at a loss for words. He may well need sedation.
Update: The sad, pathetic Sullivan now plays the Mormon card. Sigh.
