Joe, why wouldn't he [newly installed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ] do it? Why shouldn't he do it? The Obama administration is in high grovel, and is beginning to make Jimmah Carter look like a tough guy. Maybe you should spend more time being rough on enemies, and less time pressuring allies….
Ya think? Meanwhile, in the grown-up world, Somali pirates have seized an American ship and crew, and the Iranians have charged an American journalist with espionage. Two more chances for our apologist-in-chief to speak loudly and wield his little stick….
Moving right along, our esteemed Congressional Black Caucus went to Cuba recently, where it sounds like they went lips to cheeks with the Castro brothers:
The CBC members conceded there were limited discussions about human rights abuses in Cuba.
"We didn't talk about it much," said Rep. Marcia Fudge, D-Ohio. "You don't go into someone's house and insult them."
I guess they would have sucked up to the terrorist on the left, too, if he were still with us [h/t Gateway Pundit]:
Also – in the immortal words of Casablanca’s Louis Renault -- we’re shocked, shocked to learn that “Detroit has more registered voters than it has residents.” Once again, the Gateway Pundit nails it:
Well, we started off with nukes, so let’s end it for today with our nuclear illusionist-in-chief:
"Rules must be binding. Violations must be punished. Words must mean something."
So declared President Obama Sunday in Prague regarding North Korea's missile launch, which America's U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice added was a direct violation of U.N. resolutions. At which point, the Security Council spent hours debating its nonresponse, thus proving to nuclear proliferators everywhere that rules aren't binding, violations won't be punished, and words of warning mean nothing.
Rarely has a Presidential speech been so immediately and transparently divorced from reality as Mr. Obama's in Prague. The President delivered a stirring call to banish nuclear weapons at the very moment that North Korea and Iran are bidding to trigger the greatest proliferation breakout in the nuclear age….
That’s from the WSJ. Read it all and weep.
