Fox News 'All-Star' Panel on What Came Out of Obama's Nuclear Summit
Fox News ^ | April 14, 2010

Posted on 04/14/2010 2:24:21 PM PDT by Zakeet

CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: What was unprecedented this week was the unprecedented use of the word "unprecedented" by the president to describe a conference which was completely fatuous. What were the accomplishments?

[Snip]

Look, this was all a conference about changing the subject. The subject when it comes to proliferating nukes is Iran. If it requires nukes, it's the end of the NPT, it's the end of all effort to prevent a weapon from falling in the hands of terrorism. It's the biggest supporter of terrorism in the world. It will change the world. It will change the Middle East. Everybody is going to arm as a result.

To not talk about it, as what happened in the conference, it came up in the press, afterwards, because it was left out, is to show how useless this whole thing was. I'm sure half of the leaders of these countries are going home, shaking their heads, and saying what was this all about? Is this a president who believes he's actually achieved anything here?

[Snip]

BAIER (Changing the subject): The European Union has agreed to a bail-out of $41 billion to Greece. Greece is in a serious problem, financially, economic chaos, as Greece owes the world $300 billion. And protesters are taking to the street there.

We're back with our panel. Charles, what about this? What does it mean for the world?

KRAUTHAMMER: From an American perspective, that's the future. We now have GDP deficit this year of over 10 percent, which is wildly out of control, 10 percent of the gross domestic product. If we stay on course, ... we get complete instability, either hyperinflation, or interest rates out of control.

This was a conference on changing the subject from how incompetent the Wee Wee is when it comes to formulating a domestic agenda. And it worked. Now everybody is talking about what a boob the Wee Wee is in the area of foreign policy.

“What Came Out of Obama’s Nuclear Summit”

Nothing. Stop it with the summits already! They never, ever, ever make anybody agree to something they either weren’t going to do or weren’t predisposed to do already.

“Oh, loose nuclear weapons are a problem? I had no idea. i’ll be right on that, Mr. Obama, sir.”

According to the MSM, what came out of it was complete, total, unadulterated, 100.00% perfect, immaculate success.

“This was a conference on changing the subject from how incompetent the Wee Wee is”

Be fair now...they agreed to think about promising to keep a pledge they might make at some point after they think about it and then they will pledge to possibly talk about it again at some point later...

does America even have a card left to lay down on the table with China and Russia? So long as Obama refuses to play the military option card, I don’t think we do. I think these nations are politely humoring Obama.

He’s taking a break from screwing up the USA. Might as well have a go at screwing up Israel, the middle east and the rest of the world this week.

I don’t believe any American can be this dumb, so I’m convinced this is how oblablah wants it. He really wants to bury us.

Same old every night on the Fox “All-Star” panel: a neocon from the Weekly Standard, a liberal and Charles Krathammer.

I figure there were 47 invited delegates, 0bama, Plugs, and Hillary. Each of those 50 had a supporting staff of ten. Each pooped about two pounds a day for three days.

The answer is: a ton and a half of crap.

Oh he’s got a doosey summit coming up the 26th 27th. That’s the outreach to the Islamic world on entrepreneurship...40 countries coming to town to show them how to start their own business and share our expertise....while the jobs bill for our people is stalled over Barney Frank not wanting to use the Tarp money for it...therefore it goes unfunded while we fund the muslim world.

I thought it was going to be about nuclear arms control but then the ‘bama comes up with this momentous (according to the MSM) agreement where everybody agrees that terrorists shouldn’t have nukes!

Stop it with the summits already!

What this country really needs is a Summit Czar.

Charlie had his nose so far up obama’s butt election night he could... NOW he seems to have a problem with the racist marxist muslim usurper. If charlie is so smart... how was it I could see obama for exactly who and what he is, well before election night... and charlie and fred barnes could not?

We have at least one card left with Russia, as they are still paranoid about ballistic missle defense. Don’t know what the Chicoms think about it. Not that it matters, because Obama would trade the future of Star Wars for magic beans.

A Seinfeld-ian summit conference: it was about NOTHING!
