The beauty of Twitter is that it often gives people just enough rope to hang themselves. Especially if you’re an operative for a “say anything to win” campaign.

With all the turmoil around the globe, people are revisiting the foreign policy debates of the 2012 presidential campaign. Shocker: the Obama flacks who mocked Mitt Romney’s warnings about our enemies look pretty silly now. There is no shortage of people rubbing it in either.

Al Qaida, Russia, and Iraq. Oh my. A hat-trick of fail with one tweet.

But there’s more.

Ouch.

It wasn’t just the OFA hacks. Remember this creepy dude?

And then there’s Piers Morgan.

Oof.

      Mmm, mmm, mmm!
      Barack Hussein Obama
      He said we must be fair today
      Equal work means equal pay

      Mmm, mmm, mmm!
      Barack Hussein Obama
      He said that we must take a stand
      To make sure everyone gets a chance

      Mmm, mmm, mmm!
      Barack Hussein Obama
      He said red, yellow, black or white
      All are equal in his sight

      Mmm, mmm, mmm!

      Yes!
      Mmm, mmm, mmm!

            What you don’t know and I should not reveal this, in this forum… but in that stimulus bill, the one with the shovel-ready-jobs, there was/is a little known provision where somebody who tells a lie that benefits Obama in some way, gets $1000.00….
            I got this liberal co-worker, who I lie to daily… I told him whenever I lie, Obama pays me $10,000… it’s really only 1000, but I really want to retire, so I lied to get more $$… given all of the crap that has happened in the last 6 years, to realize how much $$ I have made lying to my co-worker? Do you realize how much Susan Rice made doing those 5 Sunday morning talk shows?
            I know you don’t believe me… but let’s all remember what Nancy said about Obamacare… ‘we have to pass it to find out what’s in it.’.. Same is true for that stimulus bill… and with all of the lies coming out of the White House, Jay Carney made a fortune.. PROVE ME WRONG… go ahead, I promise not to take it personally… lol

            BTW, 5 more lies and I can retire…

And they were right.

    This is what happens when you are all about ending the war and not about winning the war. Obama has dishonored every man and woman in uniform. His foreign policy goes beyond rank incompetence to malicious malfeasance.

  • RSnyder

    Imagine a Hollywood sword and sandal blockbuster — Gladiator times ten- starring an unknown jug-eared bean-pole who can’t realistically be pictured hurling a spear, let alone facing down a snarling foe with a blade held in one trembling hand. It would never happen because despite all the hype, people would recognize the bs for what it was on opening weekend; Hollywood is not in the business of losing money. And yet it happened; enough people bought into the hype and we’re suffering though the unlikely sequel to a film that never should have been made in the first place. The losses are huge, career ending, and yet, the same people are now talking about another film, another blockbuster, with a female lead. It’s a can’t miss proposition! Really.

  • Paul C.

    What did you expect from liberal lemmings, they can’t think for themselves especially when you live in a bubble.

  • James Perley

    It takes two to tango, and it takes two sides to end a war. Obama couldn’t change the sea level, and he couldn’t make a war end because he said it was so. Reality Bites. That man should be impeached for sheer incompatence whether or not he committed any crimes.

    Before Romney said it Rick Perry said it, and the liberal media accused Governor Rick Perry of wanting to re invade Iraq. He never said invade Iraq. Gov Perry said we are going to end up back in Iraq. Three Governor’s Palin, Perry and Romney had it right – two senators Biden and Obama were blowing smoke up everyone’s skirt’s.

    Here’s Politico smearing Perry’s prophetic geopolitical reality.

    The Obamabots either didn’t know jack about foreign policy in 2012 or didn’t give a rat’s a$$. Their knowledge and/or attitude haven’t changed and they must share a lot of the responsibility for the current state of affairs. They are truly evil, stupid, selfish, uninformed idiots. They insult the memory and sacrifice of all the troops lost in that war.

  • pompis1

    Obama the terrible!!!!!!

  • NonPCconservative

    Obama did not “end the war” in Iraq, just as he will not end the war in Afghanistan, he is simply pulling out the troops who are supporting the side who want to be more like us. The wars will continue and the end result will most likely be terrorist safe havens and we all know how secure we were when Al Qaeda had a safe haven in Iraq.

    This is probably one of the most attractive points for Obama with his twenty years of listening to sermons from the man who crowed that America’s chickens had come home to roost when referring to 3000 American deaths on 9/11.

    • http://youhavetobethistalltogoonthisride.blogspot.com/ keyboard jockey

      This is an old war raging in Iraq, Sunni vs Shiite. Iraq has predictably destabilized into civil war. The same thing will happen in Afghanistan when we withdraw our troops. Prior to our involvement in Afghanistan they were involved in a civil war before we were attacked Afghanistan for 9-11. The new civil war is in Syria.
