I have a good friend in New York City, who likes to listen to public radio up there. And he was astounded by what he heard on public radio this morning. Virtually every caller was criticizing Obama as though he were Bush. We are occupying Libya. We are establishing a base in Libya for US action. We are in there for oil. All of these criticisms from the audience of this far left public radio station in New York ripping into Obama and throughout the country. The American kook left and some of the mainstream left, it’s a thin line there between the kook left and the mainstream left, pretty much all have the same reaction. They drank the Kool-Aid. They’re the ones who thought that this was all messianic. They believed Obama when he said he was gonna close Gitmo; we’re gonna get out of Iraq; we’re gonna get out of the world; we’re gonna punish ourselves; we’re gonna apologize to the world for being the rotgut nation of the world. They are the ones who are surprised. They are the ones in a state of shock.
You and I — this is what troubles us — have known all along that we’re dealing with a man-child here who has literally no qualifications, no experience, no track record, and according to the Donald Trump now, no birth certificate. Trump was on The View yesterday. Trump is performing a valuable service here. He is attempting to help Obama out of a jam. You can’t say that Trump is a kook right wing birther. Trump realizes the problem that Obama faces here with credibility. He’s giving him a chance here to establish some credibility and to produce the birth certificate. Whoopi Goldberg and Barbara Walters were appalled and aghast at this yesterday with their mouths open, which is not unusual, that Trump would go down this road. But while we sit here, we laugh at the kinetic military action, regime change, no regime change, while we laugh at people in the media doing their best to prop up what they know is a mistake.
