Romney Shreds Obama’s Failed Leadership, White House Butthurt Ensues

Posted by on Mar 18, 2014 at 7:41 am

Well, it is easy to be on the sidelines and laugh at the pathetic Obama, whose biggest dilemma these days is filling out his NCAA brackets for ESPN. Yet seeing the ridiculous sniveling from Obama’s minions makes this even more amusing.

Why are there no good choices? From Crimea to North Korea, from Syria to Egypt, and from Iraq to Afghanistan, America apparently has no good options. If possession is nine-tenths of the law, Russia owns Crimea and all we can do is sanction and disinvite—and wring our hands.

Iran is following North Korea’s nuclear path, but it seems that we can only entreat Iran to sign the same kind of agreement North Korea once signed, undoubtedly with the same result.

Our tough talk about a red line in Syria prompted Vladimir Putin‘s sleight of hand, leaving the chemicals and killings much as they were. We say Bashar Assad must go, but aligning with his al Qaeda-backed opposition is an unacceptable option.

And how can it be that Iraq and Afghanistan each refused to sign the status-of-forces agreement with us—with the very nation that shed the blood of thousands of our bravest for them?

Why, across the world, are America’s hands so tied?

Because we have an inept twit in the White House?

A large part of the answer is our leader’s terrible timing. In virtually every foreign-affairs crisis we have faced these past five years, there was a point when America had good choices and good options. There was a juncture when America had the potential to influence events. But we failed to act at the propitious point; that moment having passed, we were left without acceptable options. In foreign affairs as in life, there is, as Shakespeare had it, “a tide in the affairs of men which, taken at the flood leads on to fortune. Omitted, all the voyage of their life is bound in shallows and in miseries.”

When protests in Ukraine grew and violence ensued, it was surely evident to people in the intelligence community—and to the White House—that President Putin might try to take advantage of the situation to capture Crimea, or more. That was the time to talk with our global allies about punishments and sanctions, to secure their solidarity, and to communicate these to the Russian president. These steps, plus assurances that we would not exclude Russia from its base in Sevastopol or threaten its influence in Kiev, might have dissuaded him from invasion.

Well, we know none of that happened and today Crimea is officially back in the Russian fold. Queue the outrageous outrage from Team Obama:

Wait, did he just say “blaming America”? A major dose of projection there, Tommy.

Aww, someone’s licking their wounds. This is the same crew that brings us genius such as this, so it’s a bit hard to take them seriously. Especially when one of these morons tells Putin to eat it:

Vlad must be quaking in his boots.

    All of the above rhetoric could have been boiled down to: “He who hesitates is lost.”

    I read somthing that Churcill quoted on Chamberlain that fits Zero to a tee, no wonder he got rid of the bust..anyways to paraphrase:

    “In a choice between dishonor and war, you (Chamberlain) chose dishonor, and now we have war.”

    Maybe we should call Putin “Vlad the Impaler” for that hole he put in zero’s ‘mom jeans’ when he bent over.

    Obama and his Smart Diplomacy, indeed. A man who suggests his own countrymen are racists bitterly clinging to bibles and guns can’t actually be expected to deftly manipulate world affairs much less gain the cooperation of adversaries. And here we are.

    Obama is a cult of personality; America’s naive leftist hopes and desires foolishly projected onto a man. As the world laughs at us, Obama softens us up for 8 years of Hillary.

    I am afraid that no candidate will come close to satisfying me after I finally got around to studying Romney… and found him to be the prefect one to be President.

    Now everyone of the other options looks puny and shallow, and simply not up to the job. Especially after another 4 years of Obama destruction.

    I wish Romney would run again. But only if the far right wackos will get behind him. If not I am so disgusted with what they have done to the GOP, I don’t know if I will even bother to vote anymore. The far right has destroyed this country as much as Obama.

    Lots of blaming America for the world’s problems. Zero ideas for how to solve them. Typical.

    I thought this Tommy Vietor was rather brutal in his assessment of Obama.

    Quite simply, Obama is an inexperienced and naive man that is in way over his head. The fact he has surrounded himself with low intelligence but sycophantic enablers only enhances the the problem.

    We hired a man no sane person would hire to run their household or company much less our country. The Bard had it wrong, first we kill the journalists.

    “I wish Romney would run again. But only if the far right wackos will get behind him.”

    Dismissing us as far-right wackos is a great way to earn our support, genius.

    Obama is to blame for all the foreign (and domestic) policy disasters. America is only to blame for electing him.
