Mugabe refuses to talk to US ‘idiot’
The Times ^ | 7/6/09 | staff

Posted on 07/06/2009 4:32:45 PM PDT by pissant

ZIMBABWE’S state media reported yester day that Robert Mugabe described the US assistant secretary of state for Africa as “an idiot” after their acrimonious meeting at the African Unit summit meeting in Libya.

# Mugabe calls US official an idiot

According to the Herald newspaper, Mugabe said nothing came of the talks.

“You wouldn’t speak to an idiot of that nature. Who is he?

“I hope he is not speaking for Barack Obama. I told him he was a shame, a great shame being an African-American,” Mugabe was quoted as saying about Johnnie Carson.

Good lord. Even Mugabe is making sense. The world truly is upside down.

Mugabe and Obama must be identical twins separated at birth. At least their brain.

Did Mugabe refer to a "Kenyan born" idiot?

Washington — President Obama on March 20 announced his intent to nominate career diplomat and three-time U.S. ambassador in Africa Johnnie Carson as the next U.S. assistant secretary of state for African affairs.

"Hi. You are are fool! Your president is weak. I kick your ass....."

Meanwhile. The "ambassador" tries to find his caviar while his staff translates.....

Seeing Mugabe call the Hillary State Department person an idiot did make me laugh. What a team ZERO put together to bring humor to the world because they are sure the most incompetent bunch of people ever and I thought Carter was bad.

I think “Dear Comrade” (yes on the American left you can find his defenders) overreacted. If only Dear Comrade had read the Bill Ayers penned “autobiography” “Dreams of My Father a Story of Race and Inheritance” by O’zero the two great leaders would have found common ground.

Well, at least we know that when we pay them to speak, they'll tell us the truth. I guess that's a start...

Well, we know what some Africans think of African-Americans. The ambassador probably tried to be nice and civil and “make progress”, and ran head-to-head finding out what it’s like dealing with a real world-class thug. Naive, like his boss.

"President Obama on March 20 announced his intent to nominate career diplomat and three-time U.S. ambassador in Africa Johnnie Carson as the next U.S. assistant secretary of state for African affairs"

Obama: "Johnnie Carson? I said I wanted Johnny Cochran for ambassador."
Aide: "Mr. President, Johnnie Cochran is dead."
Obama: "He's dead? How come I'm always the last person to hear these things. The next thing I bet you tell me is Michael Jackson is dead."

Yeah, it's almost funny except it's not. Obama's incompetent and economically illiterate (Bush wasn't much better, though), Mugabe on the other hand is a genocidal Fascist and the the closest thing possible to the actual Hitler.

That happened to me while watching the '04 Democrat primary debates. Only Al Sharpton made any sense whatsoever. It' was very disorienting, like vertigo.

I don’t know. Maybe M is more like a Lib who is angry as MSNBC for being a tool of the Right Wing Propaganda Machine.

Sure the enemy of my enemy’s enemy’s enemy’s enemy is Keven Bacon and all but I don’t think M and American Conservatives share the same perspective of that big eared DumBO.

When Mugabe wakes up some morning with a severed horse head in his bed (or the head of his favorite pet or obscure relative), and a note containing an “offer he can’t refuse”, he may learn to take “The Chicago Way” more seriously. Given his deep-seated criminality, probably nothing less will make an impression on him.

Seriously, Mugabe is a vicious thug, people. You have to be really desperate sufferers of ODS to give his statements anything but the contempt they deserve.

Mugabe is no friend of mine. He needs to be taken out, IMO, by the CIA. It’s just funny that Obama was planning on re-establishing America’s good name, and so far leaders are just slapping the crap out of him instead.

I’m not nearly as concerned about what Mugabe does or doesn’t do or say, as I am about having a marxist fraud in the oval office.

“I’m not nearly as concerned about what Mugabe does or doesn’t do or say, as I am about having a marxist fraud in the oval office.”

That’s clear enough. It might be more productive to be concerned about an electorate that has repeatedly demonstrated its willingness in recent years to relinquish its shrinking liberties for the sake of empty promises of peace, comfort, and security. A population of such voters will eventually get the kind of leadership we have been seeing for some time, willing to promise a lot, keep their closest friends and supporters well lubricated with Other People’s Money, and leave it to later politicians to deal with the consequences of their future unfunded promises.

Right on the money. The problem is much larger than Obama - its systemic. There will be a string of Obama's. There will be more voters getting benefits than getting shafted. This will be like a string of 50s horror movies - Revenge of the Obamanoids, Obama's wife, Return of the son of Obama, etc.
