After Obama’s disgusting “not optimal” comment about the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi, we have this little gem via Noel Sheppard at NewsBusters from Helene Cooper of the New York Times on this morning’s Meet The Press:
I think as an American, you have to look at the, the question of embassy security is one that is definitely, you know, should be looked at. The administration has to study that. But the larger issue is the issue of the Arab spring and what’s happening in this key area, a key region for American foreign policy. And that’s where you’re seeing in Libya, in Egypt, in Yemen and all over this region, you have new governments in place, you have democracy for the first time and the mess that comes with it.
And I think Americans need to be, I think Tom’s point is excellent about the response of the Libyan people. I think in the Egypt case, you didn’t see quite the same response, and I think that’s very worrying for the United States and for the administration. But I think the far larger point is that we’re right now in the middle of, the region is in the middle of such turmoil. And we’re not, we don’t seem to be addressing it in any meaningful way. Instead, we’re like, we’re talking about, you know, the death of four Americans, which is why while incredibly tragic, is something that I think is peripheral to what’s going on right now.
Probably not viewed as “not optimal” and “peripheral” to the families of these men and even to most sane Americans.
This statement by Cooper combined with this one of Alex Wagner at the Democratic Propaganda Network of MSNBC are chilling when you think what a small and immature mind it took to come up with something like this:
“I think Obama is in it because he feels a higher calling, not that he likes doing it but that he really thinks he can do something better for the country,” the host of the noontime “Now with Alex Wagner” said Wednesday.
She said Romney “to some degree” is the same way but said they’re each like bosses: “Obama’s the guy you’d have a drink at the water cooler with, Romney’s the guy who would come to the water cooler and say, ‘shouldn’t you be at your desk?’”
“I am not quite sure why [Romney] wants to be president other than the fact that it seems like the next thing he should be doing with his life and of course his father’s failed bid at the presidency I think is an animating factor.“
This Obama thing truly is a cult of personality just like it was with Ole Adolph in Hitler’s Germany…these people are no different than the Wermacht in their single minded devotion to the One. Nothing else matters except Dear Leader’s hold on power, all else is just cannon fodder for the “greater truth“. Illegal foreign contributions to his campaign – nothing to see here…did that in 2008 and got away with it, representatives of our government being killed while a drone flew overhead and we did nothing – “not optimal” and “peripheral”.
Contrast the different takes on Romney from the conservative spectrum to the total subservience of these Obamabots.
When I see this today, I cannot help but think of Magda Goebbels, the wife of Hitler’s propaganda minister, Joseph Goebbels, who was so devoted to Hitler that on the last day of the war that she poisoned six of her children and then she and her husband committed suicide. In her last written communication, she wrote to her older son who was in a prison camp after having been captured in North Africa:
My beloved son! By now we have been in the Führerbunker for six days already — daddy, your six little siblings and I, for the sake of giving our national socialistic lives the only possible honorable end … You shall know that I stayed here against daddy’s will, and that even on last Sunday the Führer wanted to help me to get out. You know your mother — we have the same blood, for me there was no wavering. Our glorious idea is ruined and with it everything beautiful and marvelous that I have known in my life. The world that comes after the Führer and national socialism is not any longer worth living in and therefore I took the children with me, for they are too good for the life that would follow, and a merciful God will understand me when I will give them the salvation … The children are wonderful … there never is a word of complaint nor crying. The impacts are shaking the bunker. The elder kids cover the younger ones, their presence is a blessing and they are making the Führer smile once in a while. May God help that I have the strength to perform the last and hardest. We only have one goal left: loyalty to the Führer even in death. Harald, my dear son — I want to give you what I learned in life: be loyal! Loyal to yourself, loyal to the people and loyal to your country … Be proud of us and try to keep us in dear memory …
The American left loves to toss the Nazi potato masher at conservatives but I would suggest that they really need to take a long look in the mirror. There are far too many of these Magda Goebbels types on the left, seemingly ready and willing to kill their own children in support of their dear fuehrer.
