It was never a brilliant strategery, and now the Politics of Appeasement have led to the sad and predictable result that the Politics of Appeasement leads to.
These are the people who showed “What Democracy Looks Like”. These are the wunderkinds of the “Arab Spring”. THESE are the people our leader magnanimously kowtowed to in his famous Cairo speech during his apology tour. Marvel at their “respect” for us, which we have been told for 3 years that our leader was restoring. Marvel at their respect for other cultures and their respect for diverse opinions.
And marvel at the fact that these animals are still drawing breath and feeling even bolder at our contrition over their asshattery.
At least our next President shows more interest in being the President of the United States of America than President of the World. We can’t put the adults back in charge soon enough.
