IBD Editorail: He said what?~!

At this Investor's Business Daily editorial we find a cache of Obama nonsense words:

"Obama, whose foreign policy consists of talking to our enemies while bombing our allies, told the assembled veterans at the VFW Convention in Kansas City last year, 'All our top military commanders recognize that there is no military solution in Iraq'."

Reflect on the monstrous nonsense of those words. He agrees with the unknown, unnamed "military commanders" because they confirm what he already thinks. Confirmation bias. In sixteen year old boys it sounds like this, "Hey, Mom, Bob Dylan writes song just like mine." (Either my twin or I once said something just like that. Neither of us were right.)

Next this.

"Obama was asked by ABC's Terry Moran recently: 'If you had to do it over again, knowing what you know now, would you support the surge?' Obama replied: 'No, because keep in mind that . . . .' An incredulous Moran asked, "You wouldn't?"

Obama continued: 'Keep in mind . . . these kinds of hypotheticals are very difficult. Hindsight is 20/20. But I think that, what I'm absolutely convinced of, is that at that time we had to change the political debate because the view of the Bush administration at that time was one that I just disagreed with.'

IBD: "Huh? Knowing we would win, he'd still oppose the surge and suffer defeat in Iraq just because he just didn't like George Bush?"

A couple more things. "These kinds of hypotheticals..." Name some other kinds of hypotheticals Barry! "At that time..." When and what exactly was "that time"? Vague, squishy, slippery, slimey and venomous, like a dangerous jelly-fish!

"I think that...At that time we...I disagreed". Is that "we" lurking there the "Royal We"? This is self centered, narcissistic, messianic megaglomaniacal, pompous, bloated self-regard. Gilderoy Lockhart on top and Iago cunning beneath. Of course he'd screw anyone, anytime, anywhere... just because.
