If these two can’t figure out that the muslim scumhood need to be destroyed, then they should just stfu. If there is anyone in our government that has a clue, then they are being very quiet and hiding.

Obama has instigated unrest on so many fronts in the Middle East. I’ve stated it many times that he can’t think more than two moves ahead, and the pushback that we’re seeing in the Middle East is evidence of that. Egypt, Syria. The backlash that’s resulting in militant Muslims falling out of favor in country out of country is music to my ears.
