At least he was honest… this time.
President Barack Obama has become infamous for his ability to lie to the American people about everything under the sun, but even he tells the truth every now and again.
Politico reported that Obama finally, in a moment of weakness, admitted at a news conference that he doesn’t really care about America winning or doing well.
“What I’m not interested in doing is posing or pursuing some notion of American leadership or America winning or whatever other slogans they come up with that has no relationship to what is actually going to work to protect the American people and to protect the people in the region who are getting killed and to protect our allies and people like France,” Obama said.
“I’m too busy for that,” he added.
Call me crazy, but American leadership and America winning are exactly what is needed to protect Americans and people overseas. That’s Foreign Policy 101. In fact, it might be Foreign Policy 100 — you know, the prerequisite the football team has to take.
Obama also showed his true colors by calling the slaughter of over 130 people in Paris a “setback.”
Most humane people would call it terrorism, barbarism, or perhaps — as France’s president did — and act of war. Apparently to Obama the loss of human life is merely a setback.
When questioned about his “strategy,” if it even deserves such a designation, in Syria, Obama insisted that his strategy of doing next to nothing is actually working, and that despite terrorism being on the rise, terrorism is somehow actually contained.
“If there’s a good idea out there, then we’re going to do it,” he said. “I don’t think I’ve shown a hesitation to act.”
There are plenty of good ideas out there, like Donald Trump’s “bomb the s*** out of them,” or Ben Carson’s idea to release the Pentagon to do what needs to be done.
