Skip to comments.WaPo’s Richard Cohen Rips Obama’s Failure of Leadership: ‘Waved a Droopy Flag’
Posted on 12/27/2016 6:07:10 AM PST by governsleastgovernsbest
Washington Post columnist Richard Cohen is no conservative, and certainly no fan of Donald Trump. The headline of a column he wrote during the campaign, after all, was Trumps Hitlerian disregard for the truth.
Which makes his column of today, Thanks to no-drama Obama, American leadership is gone, which absolutely rips the bark off Barack Obama, all the more remarkable. Observing that Obama has been all too happy to preside over the loss of American influence, he describes the current president as having waved a droopy flag. He did not want to make America great again. It was great enough for him already. On Syria, Obama threw in the towel. The banner he flew was one of American diminishment.

When does Obama realize he’s been a total failure? When a liberal Washington Post columnist writes that thanks to him, American leadership is “gone.”
Ping to Liberal Media Criticism list.
And, predictably, Cohen’s Leftist critics in the “Comments” section are calling him a racist and pointing out that he is Jewish and thus, must have some pro-Israel neo-con leanings.
The ‘loss of influence’ was totally intended....is this guy stupid or something? Why do people not see through Obama at this point???
“he is Jewish and thus, must have some pro-Israel neo-con leanings.”
And that’s why Cohen criticizes Obama for not coming to the defense of innocent Christians and Muslims in Syria?
Rips the bark off Barky. Lol!
It’s amusing to watch Leftist pols & pundits suddenly willing to scorn ObeyMe as he exits the stage. You know, as if they think they’re fooling anyone that they’re “deep thinkers.”
Obama hates American greatness and has done everything he possibly could to destroy it. Trump will spend most of his presidency restoring it. And it’s not a droopy flag he has waved but a white flag flying high and proud from Obama’s White House.
cohen is an uber-loser as is Clown Prince nobama. They experience the bond of mutual self-loathing.
Psychopaths do not self-actualize.
He’s been terribly successful in meeting his goals. He could not have done it without Republican assistance, particularly from Boehner and McConnell.
Speak softly (about himself) and carry a limp noodle.
The continued existence of the State of Israel is conditioned on implicit American military support for the foreseeable future.
American Jews who fail to recognize this are in denial.
There are two ways that American support can be lost:
Lack of will, when America no longer cares about Israel, or cares more for her enemies.
Lack of means, when America is too feeble to significantly influence events in Middle East.
Obama has been doing all he can to accomplish both ends.
He couldn’t have usurped the office without the cooperation of everyone in the District of Corruption.
Not ONE of our elected or appointed oath takers would honor their oath to protect and defend the Constitution.
He is not a natural born citizen and they ALL know it.
Yeah, as old as I am, my “flag” doesn’t get out much either.
It’s too late, Cohen. You are a “progressive Jew” who supported this Satan.
Uh...yeah, with a lot of narcissism
I think Trump submerged any plans he had on the birther issue until that time when the insiders were the most exposed.
Both Obama and ValJar are extremely dangerous for the next few weeks. They know their time is near. There is little to stop them now.
