April 15, 2014 7:13 PM Will's Take: Obama's Foreign Policy Comes From 'Monty Python'
By NRO Staff
George Will thinks Vladimir Putin is aiming to do in the alliance that did in the Soviet Union NATO.
Will said Putin doesnt believe President Obamas will abide by Article 5 of the North Atlantic Treaty (NATO), which says that any attack on Europe or North America will be considered an attack on them all, and that all parties will provide military support to those attacked.
This crisis began with Secretary of State Kerry saying, Nothing we are saying should be a threat to Putin, Will said. If youre not threatening a bad guy whos doing bad things, what are you doing?
Recalling the different influences on foreign policy, Will noted that some listen to the idealism of Woodrow Wilson and the realism of Henry Kissinger, but that Obama takes his foreign policy cues from Monty Python.
“How can you tell he’s the President?”
“He’s the only one who hasn’t got s—t all over him.”
As I recall, Will hosted/attended a dinner with obama and other “journalists”. I like what he’s saying now but was AWOL for the last 6 years. He’s part of the GOPe.
Anyone but we Seniors who Know Who Monty Python is/was?
“I’m not old!”
Is this the part of Monty Python that Obama takes his cues from?
Now that’s just silly and an insult to the Monty Python troup who were genius compared to the Obama idiots.
Nah! Monty Python was funny, zeros foreign policy is just sad.
Im not a women!
Listen — strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony
Monty Python, the Three Stooges, and Gilligan’s Island formed the bases for my philosophy of life.
Help! Help! I’m being repressed!
Same for me, but I also patterned my life after the teachings of Jethro Bodine.
HaHaHaHacoughcough! Too funny!
this thread could go sideways any time waiting for the moose to show up
or could be locked by moderator for inappropriate silliness...
Oh but if I went ‘round sayin’ I was Emperor, just because some moistened bink lobbed a scimitar at me, they’d put me away!
Interviewer: Obama, I’ve been told Putin nailed your head to the floor.
Obama: No, no. Never, never. He was a smashing bloke. He used to give his mother flowers and that. He was like a brother to me.
Interviewer: But the UN have film of Putin actually nailing your head to the floor.
Obama Oh yeah, well - he did that, yeah.
Obama: Well he had to, didn’t he? I mean, be fair, there was nothing else he could do. I mean, I had transgressed the unwritten law.
Interviewer: What had you done?
Obama: Er... Well he never told me that. But he gave me his word that it was the case, and that’s good enough for me with old Putin. I mean, he didn’t want to nail my head to the floor. I had to insist. He wanted to let me off. There’s nothing Putin wouldn’t do for you.
Brave Sir Barry?
Bravely bold Sir Robin
Rode forth from Camelot.
He was not afraid to die,
Oh brave Sir Robin.
He was not at all afraid
To be killed in nasty ways.
Brave, brave, brave, brave Sir Robin.
He was not in the least bit scared
To be mashed into a pulp.
Or to have his eyes gouged out,
And his elbows broken.
To have his kneecaps split
And his body burned away,
And his limbs all hacked and mangled
Brave Sir Robin.
His head smashed in
And his heart cut out
And his liver removed
And his bowls unplugged
And his nostrils raped
And his bottom burnt off
And his pen—
“That’s... that’s enough music for now lads,
*** looks like there’s dirty work afoot*** ???.”
Brave Sir Robin ran away.
Bravely ran away away.
When danger reared it’s ugly head,
He bravely turned his tail and fled.
Yes, brave Sir Robin turned about
And gallantly he chickened out.
****Bravely**** taking (”I never did!”) to his feet,
He beat a very brave retreat.
Bravest of the braaaave, Sir Robin!
What about Monty Python?
Well, I’ve always wanted to be a lumberjack, leaping from tree to tree. . . .
