Tales of Obama Administration Competence and Honesty

Filed under: Politics — The Professor @ 10:06 pm

John Kerry actually said this:”[Kerry] insisted the Obama administration’s diplomatic record with Iran entitles the U.S. to ‘the benefit of the doubt.'” Seriously? The administration that is synonymous with foreign policy failure-the Reset, Libya (including but not limited to Benghazi), Syria, Iraq/Isis, Yemen, to name just the most egregious examples-deserves the benefit of the doubt? Why exactly? Do we look that stupid? It’s like Hoover asking Dean Woermer to give Delta House one last chance at the end of Animal House, while chaos is rampant on the streets of Faber. Or the Apprentice asking the Sorcerer for just one more try with the brooms. He’ll nail it this time! Promise!

I wrote several posts eviscerating Obama’s risible, not to say mendacious, claim that oil transported via Keystone would be exported. Apparently the odor emanating from Obama’s full-of-it-iveness was so obvious that even reliable lefty “fact checker” Glenn Kessler couldn’t ignore it. So he awarded Obama’s Keystone claim a cherished Four Pinnochios. This was pretty good:

When Obama first started making the claim that the crude oil in the Keystone pipeline would bypass the United States, we wavered between Three and Four Pinocchios — and strongly suggested he take the time to review the State Department report.

Clearly, the report remains unread.

Of course it does! It’s not like the truth could trump politics, or anything.

Tonight we learned that while Secretary of State, Hillary was using private email exclusively to conduct professional business. (What was her email? [email protected]?)  Hillary trying to avoid scrutiny of her dealings? How could you suggest such a thing? I’m sure that every message was read and stored for posterity-by the Russians, Chinese, North Koreans, Iranians, and assorted Islamist hackers.

I could go on. But you get the idea.

  1. How about [email protected] or [email protected].

    Egad-another eight years of down the rabbit hole.

  2. SWP:

    You are mocking the next POTUS.

    These reports will not reduce her fundraising. And the press still loves her.

  3. Throw in the accusations regarding use of private e-mail account by EPA Administrator to communicate with Environmental Organizations and the loss of IRS Administrator e-mails.

    These people put the Party in to ex-parte…

  4. @Vlad-I mock the current president, why not the presumptive one?

  5. @JavelinaTex-My fave, Gary Gensler, ex-CFTC chair, also used private email for professional correspondence.

  6. Obama, competence, honesty in the same sentence.

    Putin has pulled Snowdenov out of his … sleeve again with New Zealand “revelations”. Time to deflect attention from Nemtsov murder investigation?
