Look who just crawled out of his island volcano. Karl Rove. And he brings us all tidings of good sneer.
President Obama jets to a Hawaiian holiday, while the world unravels.
…says the man who sold us a ten-ton ball of smoking yarn.
“It is also important for us to keep things in perspective,” Mr. Obama told NPR’s Steve Inskeep… he said, “the strength of the United States and its allies are not threatened.” He then compared Islamic State to al Qaeda, which he said “was able to carry out one spectacular attack,” but “at no point was there ever a sense that in fact it could do catastrophic damage to us.”
Now hold steady, irony fans, and ready the quote-cannon. You might begin by cramming this into the breech: ‘Have you no sense of decency sir, at long last?’
Mr. Obama should try telling the families of the nearly 3,000 people killed on 9/11, and the Americans who saw two great buildings topple, that al Qaeda’s attacks that day were not “catastrophic.”
Rove would do better to sell us his hairy balls, he’s got plenty to spare. For the chief political operative of the administration that in 2001 both defied the warnings and denied the intelligence about Al Qaeda to lecture this president on how awful it was for the “families of the nearly 3,000 people killed on 9/11, and the Americans who saw two great buildings topple”…my bloody god. It’s like Bill Cosby trying to describe what it’s like to be raped. It’s akin to Dick Cheney reminding us how painful it is to get shot in the face. Apparently a man needs no conscience to be featured in the Wall Street Journal.
ISIS has already destabilized the Middle East, drawing Iraq deeper into Iran’s orbit and giving Russia an opening to return to the region from which it was ejected in 1973.
ISIS you say? And who was it that “destabilized the Middle East” before them? Answer: Karl Rove’s minion, the United States. Pine away all you like, Americans, for a local son of a bitch with a well-fed army capable of ousting those bastards, but March of 2003 was a long time ago. You’re welcome, all you vapors of the Levant. George and Dick, as always, send you their worst.
For a man who thinks he’s always the smartest person in the room, Mr. Obama has shown himself remarkably astigmatic about our national interests, always behind the curve. Because of his lack of vision, the mop-up operation his successor will face is unlike any in living memory.
The mop-up operation, in Iraq…unlike any in living memory. And I suppose if the American economy completely collapses, China hosts a Summer Olympics, and an angry Iraqi hurls his shoes at the President’s head that too will be unprecedented evidence of Obama’s horrendous presidency. In the meantime Karl can begin to re-vamp the black and bloated career he hauled from a Baghdad sewer, without the sickly stench of regret or the faintest whiff of self-awareness.
