It’s a Joke! Kerry Gaffe Becomes US Policy
America has become a joke to the world. How sad.
Check it out:
It’s surreal. We are a worldwide joke and everybody knows it but us. You know, what’s happened on this Syria thing? Have you kept up with this? This is a Saturday Night Live skit! I will try to make this understandable. It’s what we do here, my friends: Make the complex understandable. This is not easy to say, but I’m telling you: In the eyes of the world, this country has to be a laughingstock. It has to be a joke, and most of the people of this country don’t even know it. They’re absorbed with Miley Cyrus or what have you.
So basically John Kerry, in typical John Kerry fashion, misspeaks. He commits a major gaffe. He attempted to walk the gaffe back. He attempted to take it back. He attempted to recall the gaffe. The Russians, Vladimir Putin, and Bashar Assad, leapt on the gaffe and took it — and the John Kerry gaffe has become the official policy of the United States in Syria with Obama and the media now claiming credit for a brilliant strategy! This is the Limbaugh Theorem on display.
We have an absolute joke of a secretary of state making an incompetent comment that is so bad for us that the Russians and Assad glom on to it and say they accept it. Kerry tries to walk it back. They say, “No, no, no! We’re going with this.” Obama then says, “We can take this,” and then he quotes Reagan. He says, “All we gotta do here is ‘trust and verify’ that the Syrians actually abide by their agreement with this gaffe.” The media, in the meanwhile, mobilized at full speed to make it look like this whole thing was a strategic initiative orchestrated by Obama, brilliantly and flawlessly executed after being brilliantly conceived.
What we have here essentially is Kerry saying something stupid and realizing it and trying to walk it back. Now, let me see if I can give you the details, and I’ve got stories here that are time-stamped. I time-stamp them, for me. If you think I’m the only one in the media thinking this, The Politico has a piece today: “The United States of Weakness,” but it’s not what you think. It’s not Obama’s problem. The reason we are weak is because the media is so fractured.
