My mother-in-law said it best, if somewhat sheepishly at using the phrase. Williard, she said, had no balls. No kidding.
That was back in August. I knew she had him pegged after his “me too” approach to Barry’s foreign policy assertions in the third debate. He was just another nice loser, as Thomas Sowell says.
Aided and abetted by obvious Democrat fraud in Philadelphia, Cleveland and Chicago—and possibly Florida’s Gold Coast, as well—which the Republican Party curiously is not protesting. Almost makes you think they like to lose, they do it so often.
But Sowell, a conservative black economics professor and disciple in his youth of free marketeer Milton Friedman, says their 2012 loss could be disastrous:
“Quite aside from the immediate effects of particular policies, Barack Obama has repeatedly circumvented the laws, including the Constitution of the United States, in ways and on a scale that pushes this nation in the direction of arbitrary one-man rule….
“Obama will now also have more ‘flexibility,’ as he told Russian president Dmitri Medvedev, to transform the international order, where he has long shown that he thinks America has too much power and influence. A nuclear Iran can change that. Forever.
“Have you noticed how many of our enemies in other countries have been rooting for Obama? You or your children may yet have reason to recall that as a bitter memory of a warning sign ignored on Election Day in 2012.”
Let’s hope Sowell is too cynical by half. Hope may be all we have left.
UPDATE: So much for hope. Barry said he had Israel’s back. He lied. His support for Israel’s self-defense lasted just 48 hours. His public support, that is.
By my reading of the journo tea leaves, he set private guidelines on the first day of U.S. Senate support: i.e. he wants no ground invasion of Gaza to clean out the Hamas rat’s nest and says, BTW, don’t bomb too long, Bibi, ’cause it might endanger the “two-state solution.”
Even W (a veteran who knows military campaigns are not won from the air) waited for a week or two of Gaza ground scouring by the IDF before asking for withdrawal.
UPDATE: Sure enough, Barry and the Hildabeast pushed Bibi into accepting a ceasefire in which the Brotherhood will decide who the violators are and when. I wonder how much of our tax money Egypt has been promised, not to mention Hamas. Hardly matters. It won’t last a week, if that long, and Bibi’s government may collapse before then.
