New Regime Spin: It’s About Iran
They seem to spin everywhere but toward the truth.
Check it out:
And then there’s Samantha Power. This is our UN ambassador now, and she gave a speech Friday night at The Center for American Progress, which is a bunch of libs. I mean, it’s John Podesta’s group. This is as far left as you can get this bunch, and she said, “We thought perhaps a shared evidentiary base could convince Russia or Iran … to cast loose a regime that was gassing its people.” Yeah, “We thought perhaps a shared evidentiary base could convince Russia or Iran — itself a victim of Saddam Hussein’s monstrous chemical weapons attacks in 1987-1988 — to cast loose a regime that was gassing it’s people.”
What she’s saying here is she’s being totally honest. She’s talking to a bunch of like-minded leftists and she’s saying, “We thought that we could actually convince Iran to cut Assad loose, because he was using chemical weapons, and that’s so bad.” She’s telling this to the mullahs of Iran! She actually thinks the mullahs of Iran sponsor Syria, and she’s telling these liberals, “Well, we thought once we presented the evidence that he’s using chemical weapons, that they would have cast him aside.”
This is the arrogance and conceit of these people and the cluelessness, too, the absolute cluelessness. This is just… This is dumb. This is the way they think the world works. Be nice to bad guys, and they’ll turn around and be nice — and if you’re really a good liberal, really a good social liberal, very concerned and compassionate for people, you’ll turn the bad guys into good guys. That’s what Obama was gonna do.
The power of Obama’s existence was gonna turn these enemies into friends, remember? He had the messianic complex. They really believed it! Every damn time a bad guy does bad stuff, they are shocked. After they’ve tried to engage the bad guy, after they have tried to talk to him. Obama says, “I’ll sit down and I’ll talk to the mullahs with no preconceived conditions because I’m the guy that can persuade them to give up their ill-ward ways,” and after they do this they’re always shocked.
