Andy Sullivan Post-Debate: Obama Has ‘Restored America’s Moral Standing in the World’

Posted by on Oct 23, 2012 at 7:42 am

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.

    Sullivan has become an afterthought — he is most useful as the butt of jokes.

    What is sad is that this man used to be a significant thinker, whose ability to see both sides of issues made him a pleasure to read, even when one disagreed with him.

    Now? Hah.

    moral standing? Wait one; I was told by leftists, cultural diversity types and gay activists that imposing morality upon others in public policy was wrong. And now we’re hearing the ‘M’ word bandied about as a compliment. And just how, pray tell, are we calculating this “moral standing”? Whose version of morality is being unjustly imposed upon the Great Unwashed to accomplish this? And what contribution did drone strikes, rendition and supporting coups in Honduras make to this elevation in “moral standing”?

    Few things are sadder than witnessing the decline of intelligent people.

    Sullivan has had his proverbial fifteen minutes of cogent thought and is now irrelevant.

    Blind and biased buffoon.

    I can’t believe more people aren’t beating up Obama for calling us out… to look into Romney position on General Motors and his call for a structured bankruptcy.

    Not only did Obama look like a fool by wrongfully portraying Romney’s stance on how GM should handle their bankruptcy and how Romney ACTUALLY said he wanted a deal that would be beneficial to both the company AND the government/taxpayers fronting the money… he and the DNC have also looked like fools for months now because they’ve constantly ripped on Romney saying he wanted GM to go bankrupt, which simply isn’t true.

    It’s like Obama and the Democrat Party DO NOT KNOW the difference between “bankruptcy” and “going bankrupt”. “Bankruptcy” was what Romney offered… “Going bankrupt” is the path Obama put GM on by throwing more money at them without restructuring it from the top down. If anybody “wanted GM to go bankrupt”, it’s Obama, because he handled it in a way no businessman (i.e. Romney) would.

    Obama ended the Iraq war!! …. by carrying out the withdrawl agreement precisely as negotiated between the US and Iraq by the Bush adminstration.

    Even more spectacularly, he killed bin Laden!! …. plus a number of unconvicted US citizens abroad using his biggest innovation – a Presidential “hit list”, a little simplification reserved by the lapdog media for the exclusive use of Democrats.

    His other “foreign policy” achievements were …. give us a few more minutes on that one, okay?

    Maybe Sullivan should return to those wonderfully zany stories about Sarah Palin and who the actual Mother of her baby is. His obsession with her made for great reading in The Onion. That way he could return to being “relevant”. Right?…. Right?…. Right?

    Until then, I’ll take Krauthhammer.

    It’d be nice if this genius used even part of the energy expended upon vilifying Trig and Sarah Palin in examining just how many things went to Hell in Benghazi.

    I hear Sullivan is going to go back to England if Obama looses, I understand he already has his shit packed.

    Andi’s little panties are in a knot! I hope Mr. Woods pays him visit and punches him right in the nose. Moral standing my ASS!

    Comrades the economy is on fire, the welfare check is in the mail and a fair and equal golden hivemind collective utopia has commenced. Our enemies tremble in fear of the fierce warlord that is comrade dear leader. Happy days are here again!
