Brzezinski: Obama ‘Understands the World Better Than Any Other Politician’
PJ Tatler ^ | February 27, 2012 | Staff

Posted on 02/27/2012 3:59:03 PM PST by lbryce

President Obama got high praise from Jimmy Carter former national security adviser on his comprehension of foreign policy.

Still, Zbigniew Brzezinski had some words of caution for the current commander in chief about his meeting next week with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, saying Obama let himself be “humiliated” last time Bibi visited.

“Prior to the elections, they’ll be tempted to strike,” Brzezinski said of Israeli action toward Iran’s nuclear program on CNN’s “Fareed Zakaria GPS” Sunday. “And this is why I think the president, when he talks on to Netanyahu on March 5th, might take into account the fact that, first of all, he was humiliated the last time Netanyahu was around, and the president of the United States shouldn’t be so humiliated, and that he represents the American national interests.”

Zakaria noted that Brzezinski has given Obama sort of a “mixed grade” through his tenure.

“My view, however, is the following: one, he really understands the world better than any other politician,” Brzezinski said. “And I wouldn’t even waste time comparing him to what we hear from the Republican candidates for presidency, because that’s so unrealistic and so primitive that it’s embarrassing.”

He questioned whether Obama has the self-confidence to use that grand understanding well, saying of the Mideast peace process, “When push came to shove, he didn’t try.”

But Brzezinski said he would support Obama’s re-election “without question” this year.

“I mean, look at those Republican debates. I must say I am literally — I literally feel embarrassed as an American when I see those people orate,” he said. “One of them sounds like a medieval Savonarola. Another one is trying to explain why he has some of his wealth located in the Cayman Islands. And someone else would go back to 1780. And then there is someone who is using his credentials as a repudiated speaker of the Congress to be president. I mean, this is just embarrassing.”

FTA:President Obama got high praise from Jimmy Carter former national security adviser on his comprehension of foreign policy.

When your claim to fame is as National Security Advisor to Jimmy Carter how can you expect anything you say to be taken seriously?

Taking into consideration the impugned political relationship shared by these three stooges, the two worst US presidents in history, one Zbigniew Brzezinski, noted by Wikipedia as a Polish American political scientist, geostrategist, and statesman who served as United States National Security Advisor to President Jimmy Carter from 1977 to 1981, the quote about Obama's unique depth of understand of world affairs has to resonate with abject pejorative ridicule.

Jimmy Carter’s advisor is not in a strong position to hold such arrogance. I lived through the Carter years and the embarassment was our government’s position in the world. The Soviets were in Afghanistan, Cubans in Angola, Nicaragua fell and Israel was our major enemy per Carter and Brzhinski.

He does understand the world from a hard core socialist muslim point of view.
Our president is a hard core socialist and a muslim so I do not know why his point of view can surprise anyone.

I was an adult living in Europe when this dunce was working for Carter and things were really just peachy then..they did a great job giving Iran to the Mullah’s and killing a lot of American’s in the process.
If we wanted to send Brezinlick back to Poland they wouldn’t take him.

At this point, with the overwhelming evidence we have to the contrary, anyone who makes reference to Obama being intelligent must be assumed to be ignorant as is Obama.

Right - this about a guy whose sophistication in foreign policy takes the level of giving the Russkies a “reset button”, insulting Sarkozy at the birth of a child, and embarrassing the Brits with a stupid CD (figuratively) taped to the bottom of their bust of Churchill.

Sorry, but his knowledge of world affairs is right there with his tire-pressure gauge / gasoline from algae knowledge of energy policy.

But if being bowed to by a poser who thinks he’s God’s gift to humanity is your cup of tea, Obama is tough to beat.

That comment is as pathetic as it is insulting. What a total jerk. The middle east is as big a mess as it is today because of the failed policies of the Carter administration, which this jerk advised. How can a nation that gave us Lech Walesa also give us this jerk?

No doubt this man’s career was a failure but his remarks about Israel give us a good idea on Obama’s evolving policy. The Democrats have concluded that a war with Iran is the most significant threat to Obama’s reelection chances. If it goes badly, (significant causalities, loss of ships or failure to achieve strategic goals), Obama will lose. Therefore Obama has been leaking information that Iran really has not decided to build nuclear weapons and behind the scenes is doing all they can to restrain Israel. Obama wants no part of a shooting war. The big question is will Bibi accept restraint?

Brzezinski: Under whose guidance the US lost five allies to communism or worse, gave away the Panama Canal, who tried to arm the Mujahadeen of Afghanistan hoping that it would convince the Russians to send more forces there, and finally advised Carter to order a hastily prepared hostage rescue mission to Iran, then to go inert after it blew up.

And now, in lecture circuit retirement, he tries to join every SPECTRE-like organization of internationalist conspiricists, supervillains, Illuminati, etc., which are populated by the same small group of egotistical failures, like Henry Kissinger.

I hope this doesn’t sound like a Polish joke or a put down of all things Polish, but the older he gets, it seems Zbig’s native Polish anti-Semitism becomes apparent.

Only in Brezinski’s twisted world view was the one humiliated by Netanyahu. I think Netanyahu and most of Israel felt humiliated after the childish crap obama served up.

She looks utterly pained whenever someone criticizes Obama. Her brother was also recently appointed as the ambassador to Sweden, so any criticizing is NOT going to happen.

Brzezinski has been an enemy within the U.S. close to half a century, cockily undermining the safety of the U.S. and Israel. Some spies were sent to the U.S. as ordinary folks or middle level spies. For example, the crowed of Soviet spies that were whisked out of the U.S., after being here for many decades. This Brzezinsky was given a bully pulpit of an academic post and even an presidential executive post under Jimmy Carter and got useful idiot Democrats and Leftwing intelligentsia to follow him like a pied piper. His exotic accent and selfassuredness they took as a sign of intelligence.

The same kind of academic infiltration by enemies is happening today with those Islamic terrorist operatives for whom endowed chairs have been bought at so many universities. The two generations of brainwashed students of Brzezinski and the students of the Islamicists are today’s supporters of the Manchurian candidate, Barack Hussein Obama.
