I just assume everyone’s as tuned in as I am to the latest news but then I talk to some of my friends and realize, um, no.
Christians molested, murdered, tortured in Egypt? Nuns paraded through the streets of Cairo as prisoners of war?
Meh. Gotta go to lunch.
Obama bad mouthing Republicans with open faced lies again?
Bah. What’s new.
So let’s go there.
Let’s interrupt lunch and yoga for a little talk about what’s happening in the world today and how our government is responding.
Egypt is falling apart, on fire, undergoing a revolution in the midst of what the clever wags like Bill Krystal initially called their “Arab Spring.”
The world–minus our helmeted golfer POTUS & wakeboarding SofS– is shocked by the devastation of the Muslim Brotherhood on law enforcement, Christians and their historic priceless museums, and taking action rid their evil influence as the MB threaten to attack European rail lines.
We won’t even mention the horror our media evinced when the Baghdad museums was supposedly ransacked, yet little is said about this.
Instead, we hearing cooing about Obama’s vacation and all the skootchy things they’ve been doing.
Goochy goochy goo!!
But back to Egypt.
From my limited viewpoint, it appears that the Egyptian military is trying to clean up the MB, as horrific as it seems, wholesale shooting the rioters in the street or executing them as they are caught.
And as Mubarak is acquitted of corruption charges, our leaders–who were quick to desert Mubarak and support the MB–are nowhere to be found on the golf course, bicycle path and the ocean, apparently unconcerned, even unaware, of the extreme violence and anti-Obama sentiment developing in Egypt.
From The Blaze, we have exclusive photos of the concerned Kerry (who’s doing a bang up job, btw!), who also lied about where he was during the coup initial interruption in Egypt’s leadership. Well, at least no one’s been killed. Oh wait.
And again from The Blaze, who is doing great work with original reporting these days, we see the hugely involved and concerned POTUS:
Of course, this administration has deep ties with the Muslim Brotherhood, including the inclusion of Hillary Clinton’s closest confidante Huma Abedin, the “Muslim Brotherhood princess” in high level meetings and separate meetings in the White House with MB officials and other White House officials.
Admittedly Obama has never been concerned with optics. In fact, he seems to enjoy poking his opponents in the eye with his lavish vacations in contrast with closing of the White House tours.
So rather than have any kind of policy opposing the Brotherhood or supporting freedom, apparently Obama’s new foreign policy is to act shocked! shocked! that any country is undergoing such violence!
In fact, Obama, whose legendary snooping policies have turned even some Hollywooders against him, is fantastically claiming that he just found out Thursday through a phone call how bad the situation is in Egypt, according to Jake Tapper.
Hence, to Egypt’s dismay, Obama rushed to the cameras as soon as he heard about the violence to stamp his little feet and lisp that violence is not an option he will tolerate, in spite of his previous vicious claims that if the opposition brings a knife to a fight, he’ll bring a gun. Indeed Gateway Pundit has meticulously recorded Obama’s frequent calls for violence in America to win his argument.
But this claimed ignorance in Egypt is in keeping with Obama’s policy of leading from his behind, and letting nothing that happens during his administration reflect back on him in any way.
Unless, of course, he can claim to have killed bin Laden, even if he was really golfing and then playing cards with Reggie Love to avoid the stomach churning activities of the Navy Seals, whom he later betrayed by disclosing publicly who participated in the raid.
Now there’s a real leader!
Yet this Dear Leader is not above lying about his own people, excoriating Republicans in his weekly address Saturday, no doubt filmed a week earlier so he wouldn’t have to be bothered with the tiresome duties of the office during his vacay:
“But there’s also a group of Republicans in Congress working hard to confuse people, and making empty promises that they’ll either shut down the health care law, or, if they don’t get their way, they’ll shut down the government,” Obama said Saturday during his weekly address. “Think about that. They’re actually having a debate between hurting Americans who will no longer be denied affordable care just because they’ve been sick – and harming the economy and millions of Americans in the process and many Republicans are more concerned with how badly this debate will hurt them politically than they are with how badly it’ll hurt the country,” he said.
Setting aside the fact that Obama himself has eliminated many of the Obamacare provisions because they are simply unworkable, apparently conservative views that Obama is ruining the health care system and economy (borne out statistically but discarded by the Left if the facts originate from a rightwing source) are a form of “sticking it to” Dear Leader.
Yet one has to wonder what kind of mind conceives such speeches and then actually goes on television to record the phrase “sticking it to me,” using this rough code language as a way to anger Dear Leader’s acolytes to riot in the streets because our rodeo clown of a POTUS is being so badly treated by the riffraff.
Gird your loins. Grit your teeth.
The more difficult it gets for Dear Leader–and it’s going to get really difficult–the rougher the language and more vicious attacks on those of who’ve realized (now or much earlier) that the Emperor has no clothes whatsoever.
And that’s a darn skinny carcass we’re lookin’ at, partying all the way to Hawaii’s best golf courses in the sunset.
