Skip to comments.When to Choose Sides

.......However, there comes a point when such deep strategic cretinism can lead to action or nonaction that can only be described in moral terms. If the Obama high command was as well-informed about Benghazi as a number of commentators claim, all considerations of policy continuity should have gone out the window. They could revert later to appeasement, stalling, retreat, call it what you will. Secretary of State Clinton, for instance, this very week is passing through North Africa in an effort to steady the ship of U.S. foreign policy by assuring regional leaders that we will support the eradication of the terrorist state entrenched in northern Mali at least in part due to the very policies Mrs. Clinton and her boss have been promoting for the past four years.
They could, they can: but on the ground in Benghazi on September 11, U.S. foreign policy was not the issue, American lives were. This indeed was "a moment to choose sides." In the battle between good and evil, the hymn says: in this moment, the administration was not being asked to choose between good and evil on the global scale. If they do not want to see evil where it is in the global picture, okay, that is why we have elections periodically. This was a case of evil in a small place, involving a desperate fight between good men and evil savages. They, the administration, did not choose or, God help us all, they chose the wrong side.

At one time I thought Obama was so bad that even Hillary would be better.
That thought no longer crosses my mind.
Hillary has become part and parcel with the idiot President.
As much a part of Obama as any of his body parts.
Which begs the question, who will the Democrats nominate as their presidential candidate in 2016?
There are no excuses.
Obama assured the spread of the Sharia law states into the soft underbelly of Africa from Libya. Now they will run rampant down the length of Africa, armed by Obama with Obama assuring the open gateway by the defeat and death of Mohammar Gadaffi who killed jihadists without remorse, and kept Africa safe from them. Obama purposefully destroyed all of that.
Hillery Clinton is either naive, disingenuous, or an outright liar in assuring that the USA will destroy the terrorist state in Northern Mali( guess which is true ....hmmmmm?) INSTEAD Obama and Clinton assured that jihadism will metastasize throughout Africa, and will soon focus on the destruction of Israel.Both Clinton and Obama are grossly treasonous to America and her allies, a lesson that all US allies around the world have learned from what happened to Mubarak and to Gadaffi.In short, with Obama in office, we have no allies, but the jihadists to whom Obama is dedicated.
All that matters to me is Obama is treating the Sandy devastation as an irritant to his agenda. Its as plain as day he despises having to redirect any sane thought about caring for the people, he will foot drag, sideline and hobble any speedy relief.
Romney OTOH hand is getting hands on and he is just a nominee with no executive powers yet, Romney is HELPING peoiple.
Sandy is a cold dash of water to the sleeping zombies that still think Obama is the messiah, now the whole nation will see openly just how much Obama despises America.
Sandy gave Obama his biggest tingle up his leg.
I wish I had an answer.
I cannot think of any Democrat with name recognition that could be run with any chance of success.
The Democrats in the Congress have shown they cannot think for themselves by all of them voting en masse without exception.The job of being a Congressional Democrat only requires you show up for the votes and vote the way you are told. No reading of the bills is required.
Perhaps there is a Governor somewhere they can call in, I know “Tax and Spend O’Mally” wants to run-— after he has gotten Maryland in debt, he thinks he can be President.
I just do not know who they will run in 2016, but I don’t think it will be Hillary.
Of course! He has been batting his eyelashes.... Hmmmmm. Pretty thin bench.
While Slick willie may have been the public face of their era, I have no doubt she was the one in control.
I think there's some strange nostalgia here for the Clinton 90's, as if people don't remember that it was just as full of non-stop outrages as Obama's reign.
Without Hillary and the Clintons debasing the office of president and politics generally, we would never have had Obama.
Become???? Hillary has ALWAYS only differed from Obama in sex and skin color. Otherwise, they are twins.
Politically speaking you are right.
However she had me fooled on the Muslim Bill of Goods she has bought into.
I expected it from Obama, and he actually stated in his book that he was on the side of the Muslims, but Hillary had me fooled there.
She has been shown to be a great Chameleon when she has to be.
Well, Biden’s got a lot of experience now. ;-)
Alinksy was their godfather.
