Piers Morgan? Is That Really You? October 1, 2014

I can’t think of a single thing that Piers Morgan said while he was in this country that I agreed with. But the return to his native land seems to have done him some good. Here’s some quotes from his latest column:

President Obama this week committed professional suicide.

Let me explain.

There is a theory in politics that once a leader has fired 50 or more people from his or her administration, he or she is finished.

Obama went a lot further than firing 50 people.

He managed to single-handedly alienate 200,000 employees in the American intelligence agencies by going on 60 Minutes and ruthlessly chucking them all under a bus over the rise of terror group ISIS.

The truth is that Obama is the one who underestimated ISIS, plunging his head ostrich-like into the sand and hoping they would go away without having to do anything to actually make them go away.

There were clear, unambiguous public warnings made nearly a year ago in front of the Foreign Affairs Committee that ISIS was on the march in Syria and Iraq.

But perhaps Obama missed them.

Hardly surprising when we discover yesterday that he has only attended 42.1 percent of his Presidential Daily intelligence briefings.

Wow.

Piers’ politics is situational. He has some fences to mend at home. It just so happens that it’s popular in the UK to criticize the American president.

This is all Piers gives a damn about. If he were back here, he’d be licking Obama administration arse as usual.

Sad that you have to pat this putz on the head just for acknowledging the blindingly obvious.

Has anyone figured out if the big O has spent more time on the golf course that what he has spent in intelligent briefings? You know, 4 hours per round of golf vs. 45 minute briefing.

One of you smart people should be able to make that determination. I’ll wait to hear…..
