Amateur hour at the White House

I’ve got a new article up at PJ: Obama’s foreign policy: amateur hour at the White House.

Comment here, comment there, comment comment everywhere.

    Very good. So simple. You must missed one adjective “…. the TRAGIC triumph of leftist ideology…” and one “t” in the word but in the final sentence.

    great analysis. So simple. So tragic.

  2. T Says:


    Once again a good read.

    You wrote:

    “What happened in Benghazi is an example of the triumph of leftist ideology over common sense.”

    This was summed up here in an earlier comment by Occam’s Beard which bears repeating:

    “In theory there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice there is.”

    Should be writ in stone.

  3. M of Hollywood Says:

    Wow the comments over at PJ are hard hitting. they make us look like a bunch of optomists – or at least they make me realize I am one, or hiding in the trying to be one.
    Oh, dear – this is seriousness on all fronts. This is not only the disaster of a Katrina or a Sandy; this is like five days after the disaster. Oh dear oh dear, please God is about all that remains.
    The comment “in theory there is no difference between theory in parctice. In practice there is” is from Yogi Berra, a man with both.

  4. T Says:


    Did not know that was originally from Yogi, but it sure does sound like him.

  5. NeoConScum Says:

    Simple, to-the-point, Bottom Line, outstanding piece, N-Neocon. Bravo!

    M of Hollywood…Read Mike Barone’s,”Going out on a Limb” for the WashExaminer yesterday and sleep soundly. (NCS formerly of Hollywood)

  6. M of Hollywood Says:

    Yes, NeoConScum: Barone and Romney give some hope.
    Soon: BiBi and Mitt. Let them go at this situation with intelligence and courage and human brotherhood. Let all humans cheer for decency and straight talk!

    “Comment here, comment there, comment comment everywhere.”

    Is she at PJ or even Salon? That damned elusive neocon.

  8. George Pal Says:

    “What happened in Benghazi is an example of the triumph of leftist ideology over common sense”

    It is both informative and instructive that the triumph of Leftist ideology should also advance Islamic ideology and aspirations – the humiliation, and targeting of Americans and the weakening of American interests. Win-win.

  9. Geoffrey Britain Says:

    What happened in Benghazi is an example of the willingness of the first fully leftist American President to sacrifice American lives upon the altar of leftist ideology.

  10. NeoConScum Says:

    George Freaking Will, for Gawdsakes, is saying that Mitt will take 312-Electoral Votes. YIKES..! Georgie doesn’t have a sentimental bone in his tough-guy body…Except for Baseball, of course, aka. the Great Conservative American Sport. (-:

About Me

Previously a lifelong Democrat, born in New York and living in New England, surrounded by liberals on all sides, I've found myself slowly but surely leaving the fold and becoming that dread thing: a neocon.
