Watching the Wheels Come Off the Bus September 23, 2013

Posted by geoff in News.

Seems like every other story these days is talking about another foreign policy issue or international crisis. Of course, we all know that this confluence of badness doesn’t happen by accident – it’s the result of really crappy foreign policy executed by a truly incompetent administration.

But the media has gone into baby duck mode, where every (completely foreseeable) crisis has arisen out of nothing. Each one independent and a complete surprise, and forgotten as soon as a new story emerges.

Take North Korea, for example. We’re all hearing about Syria/Russia and Kenya and Iran and a little about Egypt, but North Korea’s just chugging along in the background while the administration’s attention is focused on how intervention in Syria is polling. Here are two of today’s stories from North Korea:

Photos show North Korea likely testing more rocket engines

North Korea Learning to Make Crucial Nuclear Parts, Study Finds

Lessee…Rocket Engine + Nuke equals…divide by two…carry the five… Oh yeah. Long range nuclear missiles.

Just an example. There’s always the rapidly increasing violence in Iraq because the President left without worrying about long-term stability. There’s the violence along our southern border which the President hasn’t even mentioned, let along taken action against. Did I mention China?


Keeping a lid on the world doesn’t happen by accident, and the lid coming off isn’t just nature taking its course. No, that takes naivete and incompetence on, literally, a global scale.

I supposed in the continuing tradition of “everything he says is a blatant, in-your-face lie,” this isn’t a surprise:

“As a result of this work and cooperation with allies and partners, the world is more stable than it was five years ago,” he added.

Really, Mr. President? Asia? The Middle East? Africa?

What a joke this guy is.

No matter where he is speaking, he is always talking to the low information voters. He has no intention of diplomacy or leadership or anything else.

There is only one audience.

Many people believe that the president would not get up behind a podium and blatantly lie in public, or that if he did, he would be immediately called on it by the press.

So if he says it, and no ‘objective’ observer contradicts him, then it must be true.

So if he says it, and no ‘objective’ observer contradicts him, then it must be true.

Yep… and don’t forget they can’t put anything on the Internet that isn’t true.

Mitt Romney wants to ban tampons.
