If Bush Had Said It: Part Gazillion

by editor on February 2, 2010

“The Middle East,” President Obama said, “is obviously an issue that has plagued the region for centuries.”

Heads will roll at the White House. Who forgot the Teleprompter?

Just imagine the howls of liberal laughter if George Bush had made that same statement.

JL,

Indeed it is true that the issues between Palestinians and Israelites has been for less than a hundred years, although the Middle East has seen a lot of issues for centuries overall (especially when it comes to Egypt), but for sure she was talking about most recent events and issues. He was just stalling. He really was not prepared and didn’t know what to say. Regardless of time frames of issues, he had no idea what he was talking about he had no point of reference and he was just rambling. Not Presidential at all. I still don’t know what he was trying to say.

KimmyQueen,
The point of his idiotic rambling is that this conflict between the Palestinians and the Israelis hasn’t been going on for “centuries”. The nation of Israel is only about 60 years old. He’s an imbecile. Did you know that he graduated Columbia University WITHOUT honors? Sounds like a big, dumb dummy to me.

Well in his defense people use the term Middle East not exactly as a way to name the region they are speaking of, but as a way to summarize the problems in the region. “Middle East” has become short for “the problems of the Middle East”. This is something I noticed on several debates growing up.

With that said considering how smart he is and so and so forth and how arrogant he is I do not give him a complete pass. He should have said “the problems of the Middle East have been constant for centuries” or something to that effect even though it would have still been a “really? duh” moment, because this is not news. Of course the problems have been ongoing for centuries. He was stalling. Was he trying to say that because of that it is not possible to change the problems overnight?

Now the big problem for me was the actual complete answer, it was all over the place I couldn’t make heads or tails of it I had to watch it again to try to decipher what the heck he was talking about. He was completely unprepared for that question and I felt he was trying not to put Israel under the bus.

You’re being too harsh. Just substitute some of the words and it begins to make a lot of sense. For example:

“Las Vegas is obviously an issue that has plagued our country for decades.”

See?

But he HAS to be smart. He says things like “Progressively implement state and country-wide outside the box thinking via citizen directed infrastructures.”

Of course, a lot of academia speaks like that and they’ve never met a payroll either.

This man is a moron at very best. He is a robot, who has no business being a state senator, let alone a US Senator or the POTUS. He is out of his feeble mind, and is a danger to himself and others. This is just more proof that the Dumbocrats brought forward a candidate who was not capable of dressing himself, or even walking the family dog for that matter.

In making himself perfectly clear, he made the comment that “the middle east has been plaguing the middle east for centuries”, he proved once and for all that Spinal Tap were far more intellectual than he! As David St. Hubbins would say…. “I envy us”.
