USA President Barack Obama

The Propagandist's Allies continue to make mincemeat out of the enemy.

Not quite sure why they do that. I mean, they're not going to actually eat the mincemeat.

Wait a second... what the hell is mincemeat, anyway? Ever go into a restaurant and order up some mincemeat? Not me. Weird.

Anyway, here are the latest dispatches from the front:

Obama sure doesn't want to talk about it. And why should he have to? It's not like the USA is... at war.

When he was last running for president, Obama talked about Afghanistan as the necessary war. He talked like he was committed to winning it, not merely ending it. Now it seems clear that he does not think it is possible to achieve in Afghanistan anything like the definition of success that animated his war stance in 2008. The more he talks about Afghanistan, the more evident this contrast will be.

The West appear to be in a self-induced coma, notes Terry Glavin in the Ottawa Citizen:

Whatever happened to “the West,” anyway? The Russians, laughing at Hillary Clinton while they ship attack-helicopters to the crazed Baathist ophthalmologist Bashar al-Assad in Damascus, seem to have the answer to that question. You can date its disappearance to the Crash of 2008 or to the election of Barack Obama in 2009, as you please, but in any case it’s not there anymore. “The West no longer exists as a political community, as Russia has come to know it,” the astute Fyodor Lukyanov, editor of Russia in Global Affairs, pointed out the other day.

"This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility."

It's not a betrayal. It's certainly not criminal. But US President Barack Obama's remark to Russian President Dmitry Medvedev in a conversation about nuclear missile defense does show a gut-punching level of political cynicism about what a politician can do to move their agenda along by "working the system" -- even without a specific mandate from the people.

This doesn't make Obama worse than any other politician; it just reminds us that he is, in fact, just another politician.

A White House insider reports US President Barack Obama went off on his staff after Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu's remarks to a press conference concerning the Mideast peace process and the 1967 borders.

The essence of the president’s rage and embarrassment can best be summed up with him yelling out very loudly, “What the f-ck was that!?”  That phrase was apparently repeated a number of times in the span of about five minutes, a time period in which Obama’s voice became “louder and louder” and culminating in Obama exclaiming, “Never again!  Do you understand me? Never again!” Any response by Bill Daley back to the president, if given, was not overheard.

If true (and that's a big "if"), the President's apoplectic remarks were a particularly poor choice of words. Reports at the time seemed to indicate the President was caught off guard by Netanyahu's repudiation of a strategy Obama had outlined only moments before:

“While Israel is prepared to make generous compromises for peace, it cannot go back to 1967 lines because these lines are indefensible and they don’t take into account certain demographic changes that have

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to American President Barack Obama following the US leader's ambitious speech on the Middle East.

"This is something that we want to have accomplished. Israel wants peace, I want peace. We both agree that a peace based on illusions will crash eventually on the rocks of Middle Eastern reality."

There was agreement, but also significant disagreements. Watch the video and take our poll about what you thought of the Israeli PM's statement.

barack obama usa president 9/11 islam warOn the day before the anniversary of the September 11 attacks on America by Islamists from Al Queda, American President Barack Obama said some very necessary things. He talked about the need to continue the nation's tradition of tolerance. He spoke about staying focused on beating Al Queda. But the message seemed incomplete.

Those Americans who mocked George Bush Jr. for declaring a "war on terror" must now be wondering how it is possible that Obama has fallen into a similar trap, clarifying that America is actually in a "war on Al Queda". Bush's speech was about as useful as declaring a war on armoured personnel carriers. Obama's was like declaring war on the particular firm responsible for manufacturing said armoured personnel carriers. Better, but stll not quite good enough.

In fact, Obama's answer seemed scripted for a question that was never asked. He was replying to a question by a journalist that seemed almost to suggest that the American population's "increase in suspicion and outright resentment of Islam" was a mysterious phenomenon occurring in a vaccum. Obama should have...More >>
