Right now, Golden Earing’s “Twilight Zone” is playing in my head. “Why?”, you ask? Because our pResident is illustrating his delusional nature yet again. Speaking on the stump in Africa, he uttered this gem:
This idea somehow that we want to get more involved militarily around the world is simply not true. First of all, it costs a lot of money, and the United States, just like every country around the world, has to think about its budget. And where we intervene oftentimes it’s not very effective because unless you’ve got a local population that is standing up against terrorism, we end up being viewed as interlopers and intruders.”
Which budget would that be? The last one George Bush signed, lo those many years ago? Harry Reid doesn’t allow budgets to come to the floor in the Senate.
As for the rest, tell it to Ghaddafi, or Assad. Wait, what?
But then came this clanger:
“But what we won’t do,” he said, “is just stand by if our embassy is being attacked or our people are in vulnerable situations.”
Thankfully, irony is a lot like iocaine powder. A little bit each day builds up the immunity, and in America under the Seal of the O is force-fed copious amounts of irony on a daily basis. I actually worry more about the effects of withdrawal if we manage to rid ourselves of these banana republic corrupticrats currently infesting government.
Besides, it shouldn’t be too surprising. I’m sure that he didn’t find out about the attack on the consulate in Benghazi until he read it in the paper while flying on Air Farce One to his fundraiser in Vegas with Beyonce and Jay-Z the next day.
