Obama’s Misguided College Pledge, Eight Years Later

The American public along with the media are a hilarious bunch of hypocritical imbeciles to witness in action. Take these two examples: 

Old man gets illegally recorded and leaked to the media some un-politically correct statements. End result: Forced to sell business.

Now for the next scenario. Not as old man breaks the law he signed not even a year ago. Trades for a deserter who abandoned his fellow comrades in a war zone in exchange for 5 key opposition leaders. End result: Apologizes and says he won’t do it again. 

This is the America I love. The one who tries to out-outrage everyone and cares about the things that are trivial. While true that in the US Military we don’t leave someone behind, the circumstances of this deserter  make that line of reasoning fallacious. He wasn’t captured under heroic circumstances defending his fellow comrades in arms he left on his own accord. In more civilized times he would have been put to death for his actions.

For a Harvard educated man Obama showed in his USMA speech to be quite naive and defensive. I don’t hear anyone saying that they wish for war so putting foreign policy in the context of pro-war vs pro-alliance/diplomacy is redundant. The astute political observer should receive this news of a new Obama “foreign policy” in much the same manner he or she receives a weather forecast; if they don’t like it they should just wait a few minutes.
