White House Aides Define Obama Doctrine: ĎDonít Do Stupid Sh-tí (Seriously, that's what it is)
The Daily Caller ^ | 6-2-2014 | Jamie Weinstein

Posted on 06/02/2014 4:47:36 AM PDT by servo1969

Still trying to figure out what President Barack Obama’s foreign policy doctrine is? Search no more. The White House has got you covered.

“For those pining for an Obama Doctrine victory for the president, here it is: ‘Don’t Do Stupid Sh-t,’” Politico’s Mike Allen wrote in his daily tip sheet, the Politico Playbook, Saturday. “Playbook rarely prints a four-letter word — our nephews are loyal readers. But we are, in this case, because that is the precise phrase President Obama and his aides are using in their off-the-record chats with journalists.”

Allen went on to point out all the places the phrase has popped up in recent days and weeks.

“If the aim was to get this phrase in circulation to define the Obama doctrine, mission accomplished!” he wrote. “It appeared in the L.A. Times at the end of Obama’s Asia trip this spring, was reprised in the lead story of Thursday’s New York Times, and is used TWICE in today’s NYT — once in the news columns, and once in a column by Tom Friedman, who was part of an off-the-record roundtable with Obama on Tuesday.”

“WHAT’S CLEAR is that the White House is pushing this line hard, and effectively,” he concluded. “What’s not clear is how a high school cliché will help successfully define a foreign policy that many on the right and left find soft and uninspired.”

For the smartest president in the history of humanity, this is hardly a sophisticated, much less ambitious, doctrine. As for whether President Obama has lived up to his own doctrine, well, that’s another question altogether.

I guess that type of stuff is supposed to appeal to the kids on Reddit and Tumblr?

Unfortunately slightly misstated; it should be, “ALWAYS do the stupidest imaginable sh*t.”

"Well, Dude, what did you think it was?"

Well I, for one, had always thought the Obama policy was, "Do Incredibly Stupid Sh-t”.

(Somebody, someday is going to win a Nobel Prize for demonstrating how the Obama regime proved, once and for all time, the validity of the "Law of Unintended Consequences".)

In the Obama Administration, ‘Don’t Do Stupid Sh-t’, is not a doctrine , it’s an aspiration or goal., and one that is not often met.

One can best define the Obama years as the, ‘stupid sh-t” Presidency” where “not f**king up too badly is the highest bar they work to” - and they are constantly falling short of that goal.

These losers are too incompetent to even run a proper conspiracy, which may be the saving grace of the country.

That is the dumbest foreign policy approach I’ve ever heard.

Now, I DO wish the GOP would take the “don’t do stupid ((((!” mantra to heart.

The race to “stupid”...that’s where we are ? Sad.

Only problem is that there are still enough odopey supporters out walking around freely for it to possibly succeed. A conspiracy that is. As far as their doctrine goes..........is there a date set for it to take effect? :>}

Sadly, though...that's the kind of stuff that resonates with the younger, low-information Obammunist voter these days. If we're going to reach and deprogram Generation.com, we've got to come up with similar, dumbed-down (though maybe not vulgar) means of communicating our positions to a generation that has never been taught how to use, understand and appreciate proper English.

‘Don’t Do Stupid Sh-t,’

They're succeeding about as well as Google is with their 'Don't Be Evil' motto.

“Don’t do stupid sh^t”....I think they got that wrong..........

I think it should read, “Do Stupid Sh^t”. I believe they are definitely following the second doctrine.

White House Aides Define Obama Doctrine: ‘Don’t Do Stupid Sh-t’

Not surprising----considering the play-schoolers Obama surrounds himself with, all (gag) looking after US ntl security. The vacuous air-heads include: Susan Rice, Jen Psaki, Jean Haft, Tommy-dude Vietor (now working for Hillary), .....not to mention Jay good-riddance Carney.

OBAMA ANNOUNCES NATIONAL SECURITY JOB OPENING :
"If You're a Dude and You Drive a Van,
You're My next National Security Advisor."

Tommy Vietor, Obamba's van driver, got national
security clearance, and attended WH Situation Room
meetings; Dude Tommy is now working for Hillary.

FEEL SAFER YET, AMERICA?

This imbecile was openly mocked by reporters for her
dumbness----couldn't name a single foreign policy success.

"Jeepers, it's hard to think up stuff when you're having a bad hair day."

Conservatives have routinely expressed suspicion about Valerie Jarrett's role in Obama’s inner circle. The former Chicago lawyer and businesswoman has been a top adviser to the president since his election in 2008.

Jarrett's official WH title is "Senior Deputy Advisor" (in Chicagon gangland politics that means "wire transfer artist") Michele Obama was hired by Jarrett---then an official in the corrupt Daley Admin.

===============================================

Laura Ingraham insightfully said that “all roads lead to Valerie Jarrett," noting Jarrett's involvement in secret dealings w/Iran (where Jarrett was born and raised). She has her tentacles into every issue and every topic..... at least part of her role is to serve as “chief liaison to the business community, state and local governments, and the professional left,” but her influence is undeniable.

Jarrett commands a staff of nearly three dozen, and has a hand in decisions ranging from invitation lists to state dinners and gifts to foreign leaders, to USSC nominees, ambassador appointees, President Medal of Freedom awardees.

When Warren Buffett visits to the White House for lunch, the table is set for three.

============================================

Here's Jarrett (in pink) at the BP extortion meeting. CNN reported 2010: Behind closed doors and after four hours of negotiations, BP executives agreed to put $20bn into an independently managed compensation fund.

BEHIND CLOSED DOORS---Obama was joined in the negotiations by VP Joe Biden, and five cabinet secretaries, including DHS Janet Napolitano, interior secretary, Ken Salazar, energy secretary, Steven Chu, Labor Secy Hilda Solis, Valerie Jarrett, and COS Rham Emanuel. / PICTURE/BP Holdings.

DOING THE DEAL---Valerie takes notes as Obama dreams about his cut and new diamonds for Michele. In foreground, then-COS Rahm Emanuel's hand holds the pencil jotting down his cut that will help make him Chicago Mayor.

At the top, in turquoise, then-Labor Secy Hilda Solis figures out her cut and how many BP executive jobs she needs for latinos. Left, Valerie Jarrett hopes Biden will remember his scripted lines.

MOB HIT VP Joe Biden Told BP: "You’ll Put $20 Billion In Escrow Or We’ll Do It For You."

=============================================

Jarrett is "The Enforcer"---making sure Obama is properly adored and worshipped. If you don't worship Oboba-- Valerie's gonna getchou.

The 0 bummer doctrine is:

If it isn’t broken, work on it until it is broken.

"Don’t Do Stupid Sh-t"

The problem is, what he means by that is: "Don't do anything to slow the advance of World Socialism."

If the thing is objectively stupid and destructive, yet useful to the collectivist agenda - then it's perfectly OK.

After 5 1/2 years of nuclear grade stupidity it’s too late for Obama to implement such a sensible policy.
