Skip to comments.The Charge of the Lightweight Brigade ... Mark Steyn
Posted on 03/22/2014 9:59:39 AM PDT by Rummyfan
I heard the "leader of the free world" on the radio this morning speaking from the White House on Russia's annexation of the Crimea. President Obama's big thought was about the "choices that the Russian government has made". It was delivered in the condescending tone of a grade-school guidance counselor lecturing Little Vladdy on the "bad choices" he kept making, and what's more "choices that have been rejected by..." Stand well back! "...the international community".
Other than that, the President announced he was imposing "sanctions" for more individuals in the Russian government thinking of visiting Disneyland or opening a savings account with the First National Bank of Dead Cactus Junction. If you're one of those so named and your wife's hassling you for a weekend of shopping on Madison Avenue or Rodeo Drive, tough: Obama's put you on the No-Shop list. For anybody in the Kremlin who still bothers watching US government press conferences, the only real danger from American "pressure" is that you may die laughing.

Miss Crabtree - Obama - tries to rap her ruler on the knuckles of a twelve-hundred-pound gorilla in the classroom.
It’d be funny if it weren’t so pathetic.
Thus, American foreign policy of the higher consciousness: no gunboat diplomacy, just gayboat diplomacy.
So, while Putin, the mullahs, and the Chinese Politburo enjoy the run of the planet, US foreign policy is, as those kids who make "bad choices" like to say, "totally gay".
That’s where Obama got his campaign theme:
“Forward, the Light Brigade!”
Was there a man dismay’d?
Not tho’ the soldier knew
Someone had blunder’d:
Theirs not to make reply,
Theirs not to reason why,
Theirs but to do and die:
Into the valley of Death
Rode the six hundred.
The problem, as others have pointed out many times, is not the homosexual sitting in the White House. Its the 51% of Americans who thought he was the cat’s meow.
Politics always must rest upon a moral foundation. In the absence of that foundation you get what you get which is evil limited only by its sheer incompetence. And a populace that can’t figure out what is wrong if they can ever be roused to think about it at all.
Putin’s advance is “flawed logic,” unlike 99% of the DNC platform, which advocates all-abortion-all-the-time and welfare as good for minorities, and advocates adding millions of unskilled laborers to a supply-heavy market as a way to give people a path to the middle class.
And Joe “flawed logic” Biden, good old Original Joe, himself advocates the logical tactic of shooting all of your shotgun’s rounds into the air, effectively disarming yourself, as a way to defend against intruders.
The next step for Obama will be to send Elton John and Billie Jean King to punish the Russians.
The purpose of NASA -- promote Islam.
The purpose of the Defense Department -- promote homosexuality.
The purpose the the State Department -- promote homosexuality.
What kind of president so we have, exactly? I think the answer is entirely too obvious.
Cue mental image of Churchill wagging his finger at Hitler and scolding him about the choices that he has made.
Yes, and we still have a problem when a large minority in those polls we see still support this evil azzhole. That’s right, they’d vote for him again.
I knew that Putin’s tough guy posturing was going to bring out the weakest in Obama as the latter tries to ‘man up’ and hurts himself trying.
If that is the case the fix is in. Bet heavy on his picks.
Just as Obama has displaced Jimmy Carter as America’s worst president, he’s also threatening to dislodge Neville Chamberlain from his 80-year-old perch as the universal metaphor for weakness in the face of aggression. How will we survive the next three years?
The American People get the politicians they deserve. We got this clown and his aides. Predictably they blundered and will continue to blunder as it is their nature, their essence their very being. The clown in the White House is a symptom of an underlying malaise in our body politic. The issue has become; will we survive as a Republic the next three years?
I like the way Biden in one foolish episode said, “Just put that double barrelled shotgun and fire two blasts.” Put the shotgun where, Joe? I know exactly where I would like for Joe to put HIS shotgun.
The obvious answer is that he is the sort who is not allowed to exist openly in Islamic countries.
While tying up five of his precious CVN's nose-to-stern at three adjacent quays at Norfolk, as if he were inviting a repeat of Pearl Harbor.
If Russia or China did pull the trigger, it would be "Holder's People" who'd pay the biggest butcher's bill. Think Barky cares about his "dawgs", tho'? ..... Not a chance in hell.
Guy's the worst kind of slime in the universe, an upper-middle-class guy with a grudge and an itch to show off on the world stage and make everybody else pay for his childhood discontents.
You think all this evil is unintentional? Try again.
It is hard to discriminate between bad bungling and intentional harm. In either case America is being badly damaged.
We should be having some really big trials somewhere, revolving around the phrase "manifest injury to the People and Government of the United States."
Obama motto...... Make AIDS, not war!
The issue has become; will we survive as a Republic the next three years?
Are you still killing your unborn?
America is a LAUGHING STOCK!!
BINGO!!! We have a GAY MUSLIM for Prez.
Mark Steyn ping.
Freepmail me, if you want on or off the Mark Steyn ping list.
Thanks for the ping Slings and Arrows.
Putin, Putin, Putin . . .
Let’s face it, our “President” is a pansy!
Imagine ANY other previous recent U.S. President in the same seat as President Obama...include Pres. Carter...what do you see? Not helpful, just amusing to contemplate, IMHO!
NOTE: This is a color-blind post. I am just saying "previous Presidents", all of whom happen to be white and male...body language is body language, it's a neutral concept.
Your picture is backwards. The giveaway is the dogs on the tie who are facing the wrong way.
