Picking your fights is important in war,life and politics. Fighting for the sake of fighting is stupid no matter the setting. If you’re going to fight-fight right. Don’t waste anything;time, effort, and credibility being the three that comes to my mind regards politics.
Over the past few days we saw how so many of the ultra Right rabble rants came to be shown as utter bullshit. Don’t kid yourself Obama and his supporters love this. The folks on the right have so much egg on their face with the added beauty of having been the ones to smash them there. meanwhile those struggling to make legitimate points are overshadowed by the inanity and if given the chance to be heard are instantly degraded and denounced as being aligned with the eggy nutters. What happens then? Well the O and his allies just keep stepping.
Let’s look at a few:
Obama accepts gift from Saudi King.
Yes yes that was some serious bling but he didn’t get it because he bowed. Much like Bush got a sword gift giving seems to be a thing with the Riyadh crowd. If you really wanted to say something on this perhaps you could’ve looked at the OPEC price increases or Saudi Arabia’s pro Western actions in the Lebanese elections.
I didn’t hear or see an apology. I saw a little humanism fluff. Dresdeners reportedly feel slighted by the actual O visit. You see he apparently stopped by,said “Hi” to Merkel without giving her a back rub and went to Buchenwald. In fact it looks like Dresden was really only chosen not due to it’s place in history of US/German relations but it’s proximity to the former concentration camp.
Keeping vets from Normandy
This was BS from the word “go”. No crow for me on this one.
GPA at Harvard
Although I get the idea that the “most transparent” is actually pretty opaque on a number of things I don’t get this one. What is the point of knowing any POTUS’s GPA,IQ, or other scholastic stat ? The energy expended on this one seemed misplaced and surely devolved into juvenile not far out of the gate. There are certain facts on the subject that nobody can credibly refute. He went,got “honors”,wrote “the least cited HLR entry”. Those are three things a vast majority of the Right and Left have failed to do.
about the image. it is from WWII which I hope is obvious. it holds true to today and the subject of this post though. waste does indeed help the enemy.
