Carnivals for paint chip eaters complete with Barkers green with envy. Masquerade balls hosted by merchants of resentment and ill will.

10 Sep

WC_Fields Ann Coulter panty sniffer in chief Sean Hannity allowed Miss Aryan USA to call the President a monkey. Rush “I am not a racist” wink wink called Syrian policy Shuck and Jive. Mark Noonan, the worlds most eminent revisionist historian, political scientist of breathtaking insight, worlds problems solver extraordinare and a graduate of The Culinary Institute of Tasty Bullshit claimed the President had already “botched” our response to the horror over the use of chemical weapons in Syria.

This President is a Military Hawk. And they can’t stand it. He is also a smart Hawk. And they can’t stand it. He’s had more terrorists and terrorist leaders killed than his predecessor. And they can’t stand it. Nor can they stand that both Gaddafi and Bin Laden are dead, as well as some Somalian Pirates. Mubarak and the Muslim Brotherhood leadership are no longer in power in Egypt. And they can’t stand it, not because these things were accomplished but because they can’t claim the credit. Instead of helping, they make the efforts more difficult thinking that by appealing to a dwindling and increasingly alarmist base that it will somehow get them re-elected. And if re-elected they can respond to any international crisis by bombing the shit out of country, or increasing their contempt for the poor or doing everything they can to provide more welfare to the rich and dismantling  the ACA.

These are the same people who unquestioningly supported the invasion of Iraq, based upon falsehoods, and anyone who questioned the policy was called a traitor and on the side of Al Qaeda. If there is any group who can claim responsibility for dividing Americans, it is those on the extreme right. Can you imagine the decisions a President Romney, or Cruz, or Bachman, or Paul or horror of all end of the world horrors $arah Payme would make? Ideology first, last and forever. Pragmatists to them are squishy. Reality is to be ignored. Facts aren’t really facts if they don’t support our ideology and thinking through complex problems is for the academics that they mock and despise. Yep! Being educated is for wussies.

The goal of the threat of missile strikes was to get Syria to admit to and stop using chemical weapons. They have. And have offered to get rid of them. And I don’t understand what all the hubbub is about in regards to Russia for in this, they seem to agree. And again, the extreme right can’t stand it. If the President turns out to be successful in his stance on Syria I predict that the most fanatical of those on the extreme right will spontaneously combust.

    What would be the horror of a President Paul in regards to foreign policy? Pretty much anti-imperialism and much less of a hawk than Obama.

      Gotta admit, there’s a lot to like about Paul’s foreign policy. Everything else…no so much.

        You don’t like his “don’t send the poor to prison for smoking marijuana” policy?

        How about his “don’t put ethanol in the gas tanks which makes them run worse and drive up the price of food” policy?

    Poetic license but he’s an extremist as well. I am a proponent of anti imperialism but now more than ever, it is a global community and to use my Kitty Genovese analogy, sometimes morally you can’t just be an uninterested observer.

    We’v already seen the trial balloon of the Republican response: Obama failed and Putin had to save his ass.

      Failed in what? To bypass congress? Yep. Says right here in the manual. Broke the law by not breaking it.
      The ass saving very well might be the other way around. Now the scheming nefarious President has tricked Putin into picking up his hot potato. No e in potato. And as if by magic, the right has become a huge fan of diplomacy. Imagine that!

    “This President is a Military Hawk. And they can’t stand it. He is also a smart Hawk.”

    Yawwwwnnnnn.

    So predictable. Had a repub not went to Congress to get permission to bomb a non threat like quackdaffy you libs would have went apeshit. You libs did your best to squack about drone strikes and make it impossible for Bush to do anything.

    Had Bush carried out a boots on the ground military strike in a sovereign nation you libs would have demanded impeachment.

    It is funny watching you guys get a hard one over the threat of some worthless missile strikes that would have achieved nothing.

    Not one single shred of evidence that Assad has used chem weapons has been presented. barky gets a pass of course.

    Not one thing has changed. This agreement is worth just a little less than a piece of paper.

    Anyone for an aspirin?

      A Republican did. His name was Bush. And surprise surprise surprise there were no wmd’s.And unlike Bush, 24 hrs ago there was no talk of boots on the ground nor was there 12 hrs ago. And please, please provide your evidence of a lack of evidence. Do you think the videos of people dying are faked? Do you think Assad is lying about giving them up? He’s admitted it! I certainly hope not other wise you’ll need more than an aspirin.
      On 2nd thought, maybe you’re having a detox flashback.

        “And please, please provide your evidence of a lack of evidence. Do you think the videos of people dying are faked?”

        Videos of people dying do not prove who released those chemicals. Assad had nothing to gain by doing it. The FSA and al queda had everything to gain by it. Do you have any proof of which side released the weapons?

        Assads own words not an opinion piece from somewhere.

        “Do you think Assad is lying about giving them up?”
        Most definitely. They may come in handy when survival of whats left of his regime is in doubt.

        This agreement, if that is what you want to call it is worthless.

        Somewhere in hell, maybe Sarah can ask him about it, neville chambelain is still waving his little piece of paper.

        I would recommend doing a little research on where the FSA is getting their money and who will profit the most by Assad being removed from power and replaced by a sunni dictatorship.

        Hint. It involves oil and natural gas.

        To be honest, I hope mr sotero depletes our stock of Tomahawks. It’ll take a lot of opm to replace them.

    Allow me to offer an opposing opinion – what a shock right? First of all, the military is responsible for taking out the AQ leadership, and that process was put into place well before Obama was even a Senator. Other Presidents give the military credit for such tasks, Obama likes to take that credit himself, so I understand your confusion.

    Secondly, if you truly believe Syria and Russia are sincere about ridding themselves of chemical weapons, then I have some carbon credits to sale you. This is just a ploy on Syria’s part to stave off a missile attack and keep Assad in power, which works well for Obama and saves him from the embarrassment of losing badly in a congressional vote.

    My gosh, you guys seem to assume the worst. I suppose what you say is plausible but unlikely. The President understood going in that he could lose congressional support, that’s why it was the right thing to do. I’ll stick my head in the sand and not believe that you never give Obama credit for anything, but it sure seems that way, which is a shame. Surely you’re not that fanatical, are you?

      I will give Obama credit when he deserves it. But his foreign policy is all over the map in my opinion. I think he makes it up as he goes along. I will give him credit for allowing the military to continue the pursuit which resulted in UBL’s death and other AQ leaders.

    And a couple of other things – Obama was a Muslim Brotherhood and Morsi supporter before he wasn’t. Egypt and Libya are complete messes now under his watch, and there were never any shortages of chimpanzee references with Bush at the helm, so I am not sure why Coulter’s monkey reference is note worthy.

    He was a supporter of a democratically elected governing body, not the body’s ideology. Additionally, he is not the leader of any country other than ours.
    There is a difference between a monkey and a Chimpanzee. She might as well have said that Obama was Putin’s bitch, because that’s what she meant but being so sensitive to his race, she intentionally used the word “monkey”. I’m surprised she didn’t say watermelon eating monkey.
    Regardless of your opinion about Obama and his foreign policy, his pragmatism has been a refreshing change from his predecessor the cowboy. Bang! Halt or I’ll shoot.
    Finally, I think it is disingenuous to criticize someone who changes their mind. Being unmoved by new information is not a sign of a leader, it’s indicative of an ideologue and compromise is not a sign of weakness. Overall, I think Obama is 5 steps ahead of everyone else.

    Courtesy of John Stewart.

    “Who cares how we avoided a war and got a dictator to give up his chemical weapons if we avoided a war and got a dictator to give up his chemical weapons.”

    Such was Jon Stewart’s assessment of the news that Syria might relent and work with Russia to hand its chemical weapons over, avoiding U.S. military intervention.

    On Tuesday, Stewart praised John Kerry for bumbling, Magoo-like, into the potential solution by proposing it off-the-cuff as a ridiculous scenario that could never happen.

    But when Syria seemed to take the “dickish offer” seriously, there was no celebrating at Fox News. Instead, the network quickly went into shame-spin cycle, characterizing the development as embarrassing and giving Russia the upper hand in our never-ending global pissing contest.

    This was apparently, quite enough for Jon Stewart, who launched into a breathless rant:

    I get that Fox opposes the Syria peace plan because its modus operandi is to foment dissent in the form of a relentless, irrational contrarianism to Barack Obama and all things Democratic to advance its ultimate objective of creating a deliberately misinformed body politic whose fear, anger, mistrust and discontent is the manna upon which it sustains its parasitic, succubus like existence, BUT… sorry, I blacked out for a second I was saying something?”

    Peace in our time!!!!!

    All hail the great peace maker and his piece of paper and the promises written on it!!!

    So, how many Tomahawks do you all think mr sotero will launch? On average they cost about 1.2 mil each. According to the last data I saw, The United States possess around 4,500 of the things.

    Could be a nice chunk of change there.

    The Israel government supports a strike in Syria. And if AIPAC supports it as well, how does the American right climb out of the box they have been put it? For yrs now we have heard conservatives use Israel as a prop, sincere or not. But it’s pretty tough to be against something that you’ve been in support of for so long just because it’s Obama who’s the President.
