Thick Book of Death Spoils the President’s Tea February 10, 2015

This is typical of the President’s attitude:

He discussed his current foreign policy strategy and his response to international terrorism in an extensive interview released today with reporter Matthew Yglesias for Vox.

‘I’m dealing with it every day,’ Obama said. ‘That’s what I wake up to each morning. I get a thick book full of death, destruction, strife and chaos.’

‘That’s what I take with my morning tea.’

Yes, I’m sure he reads the President’s Daily Brief every morning as he sips his tea. And then, having dutifully perused the entire thing, he sets it aside and turns on ESPN.

Mr. President, it’s not enough to be informed, or even to talk about these situations. You actually have to do something. And being the President of the USA, it’s not enough to just do something – you have to lead the world in whatever action is being taken.

But that attitude is clearly not part of Barack Obama’s world view:

…the president made sure to differentiate himself from what the reporter noted was the previous Bush administration’s policy of ‘preventative war’ and ‘democracy promotion’.

‘We don’t have the option of simply invading every country where disorder breaks out,’ Obama said. ‘To some degree, the people of these countries are going to have to, you know, find their own way.’

Think about that for just a second, Mr. President, and it will be clear to you why that book of death & destruction is so thick.

Yes he does do this, along with every other president that came before him. Poor Obama.

Geezer ran the lights for Thick Book of Death back in the 90s.

He wore ear plugs.

Yeah…no. Bad as it is, I am in the ‘prefers inaction’ column, when it comes to this president.

Releasing Gitmo inmates, refusing to even name terrorism, flinging open the borders, estranging Israel…when he acts, he acts positively to harm or endanger Americans and our interests.

I wore earplugs and a blindfold.

Braille lighting FTW.
