President Pantywaist is a Surrender Monkey

Barack Obama said he would make sure America was liked again around the world.

It's not working. Instead, Obama is being called a girly-man, and by the Europeans of all people:

Barack is not the first New World ingenue to discover that European leaders will load him with praise, struggle sycophantically to be photographed with him and outdo him in Utopian rhetoric. But when it comes to the critical moment of opening their wallets - suddenly it is flag-day in Aberdeen. Okay, put the G20 down to inexperience, beginner's nerves, what you will. ...

Then came the dramatic bit, the authentic West Wing script, with the President wakened in the middle of the night in Prague to be told that Kim Jong-il had just launched a Taepodong-2 missile. America had Aegis destroyers tracking the missile and could have shot it down. But Uncle Sam had a sterner reprisal in store for l'il ole Kim (as Dame Edna might call him): a multi-megaton strike of Obama hot air.

"Rules must be binding," declared Obama, referring to the fact that Kim had just breached UN Resolutions 1695 and 1718. "Violations must be punished." (Sounds ominous.) "Words must mean something." (Why, Barack? They never did before, for you - as a cursory glance at your many speeches will show.)

President Pantywaist is hopping mad and he has a strategy to cut Kim down to size: he is going to slice $1.4bn off America's missile defence programme, presumably on the calculation that Kim would feel it unsporting to hit a sitting duck, so that will spoil his fun.

Watch out, France and Co, there is a new surrender monkey on the block and, over the next four years, he will spectacularly sell out the interests of the West with every kind of liberal-delusionist initiative on nuclear disarmament and sitting down to negotiate with any power freak who wants to buy time to get a good ICBM fix on San Francisco, or wherever. If you thought the world was a tad unsafe with Dubya around, just wait until President Pantywaist gets into his stride.

Obama is starting to make me yearn for the days when Jimmy Carter was president.

Me too. At least the full extent of Carter's failure, both personally and presidentially, only became apparent well after he left office. And I confess to a small amount of sympathy for him, since he labored under a handicap that neither he nor anyone else knew of at the time.

A very small amount, mind you. Barely measurable. But more-than-zero.

Sure do. ONE of them that was part of the equipment contained in the lifeboat, do you honestly think that sat phone will have any traffic that contains any derogatory obama comments from this blog or other sources?

If so you're out of your friggin' skull.

BTW, I just checked the comment thread at the Telegraph article that's linked and calls barack hussein obama a pantywaist.

Funny thing I see no "SkyBlue" commenting and being critical of offensive remarks posted there.

hcddbz:

Skyblue,

Of course what you say makes no sense because you randomly take things out of context and try to apply it to dissimilar situations.
We have men and women in uniform fighting in Iraq and some on the left presets in calling it an Illegal war and that American troops are committing war crimes. Well that emboldens our enemies and some might see it as giving aid and comfort to our enemies. The constant refrain of if we loose more troops were gonna leave guess what that makes killing American troops a top priority because the enemy wants us to leave and if they know a high body count will do it guess what they will try to deliver on that.
When you have strong leader and will not back his play you undermined that person's authority. When you have week leader who spends all his time prostrate before world, you cannot undermine him, because he has already done it to himself.

The basic difference is an understanding of the world. We would prefer diplomacy to work in all situations, but at some point a line needs to be drawn and when someone cross that line talk ends and violence begins. Talk softly and carry a big stick does not work when everyone know you will never use the stick.
It is, one of the rules of parent dealing with a child. Never, ever make threats that you cannot carry out. This means you need to take a pause and think about your words. Never tell your child your going to ground them for life or kill them. Take a moment and think about what you really can do. If you do not clean your room you will be ground for this time frame and this privilege will be removed.
Same thing for nations, going to the UN does not work. N.K do not do this or we will go to the UN look it not going to happen with China and Russia on the security council unless you broker a deal before hand.
That is the issue with BHO it believes his words will change the world.
For years Clintons Administration talked about Regime change, The Bush Administration carried it out and they were vilified for it.

SkyBlue,

I just think that while pirates are holding an American Captain hostage, you should not go around calling the President a pantywaste while he is attempting to get the pirates to surrender. Calling the president a pantywaste emboldens our enemies.

You don't see a difference between 9/11 and four pirates holding a single civilian? You don't see a difference between having thousands of troops in harms way in Iraq and four pirates holding a single civilian? You don't see the difference between Islamic Jihadists fighting a holy war against the United States and four pirates holding a single civilian?

So what are the pirates going to do if they are emboldened? If they kill the hostage they will in turn be killed or captured. If they are emboldened then maybe the world will finally take action to put an end the threat. If calling the president pantywaste gets the world to act decisively against the pirates then, yes the president is pantywaste.

Skyblue,

It was the Brits that called him that based on his last tour.

Really, I wish he did act like women who wear panties. A Pantywaist in the proud traditions of Margaret Thatcher, Golda Meir and Indira Ghandi. Women who let be know cross a line and we will respond with force.

See BHO has shown weakness and the world is responding. He emboldens our enemies by not being decisive.

No US ship has been taken by Pirates in 200 years. Yet, after he apologizes for American Arrogance, tells the world were are not at war with Islam and starts to talk about nuclear disarmament our ships gets taken, NK launches missiles and Iran tells the world how far along they are with their nuclear program.

He has emboldened our enemies through his own actions. Now for once, instead of the MSM making the news they are reporting on what is occurred.

A leader must make it clear that they are for their own people.

We have fought three wars to keep American free on the High Seas, the two Barbary War's of piracy and enslavement of American sailors, and the war of 1812 because of British Impressments . For many years before each of this wars we tried negations and even paid ransoms but in the end the only thing that stopped it was gun powder and the flash of steal.

Peace through Strength
Peace through Superior Firepower.
All great sayings but one has to have the WILL.
It must soon be made clear to our Pirate friends that the cost of taking an American ship is far too high.
It is time to bring steal rain.

Paul_In_Houston:

I said this just after the election. Don't see anything that needs revising...

On Election Day, the Ace of Spades website posted a picture of two Iraqi women, with purple-stained fingers showing they had voted in an election.

It was a "Get Out The Vote" message, noting that whatever inconveniences YOU may experience by voting, "These women literally risked their lives to vote".

My first reaction was, "And THE ONE can hardly wait to sell them out".

Obama's rhetoric on Iraq, and comments about Israel, showed a casual willingness to sell out allies when convenient.

A commenter asked, "Who appointed us to be their guardians? Why is it America's job to make sure they are safe?"

Perhaps we'd rather not have the entire world as a nuclear-armed camp, figuring that the more countries with these things, the more risk that some will eventually be used.

Our alliances with these countries ain't out of the goodness of our heart, but for our own best interests. Sell one out, and I'll bet you the others will sure take notice.

The commenter seemed to be saying, "To hell with them; let them take care of themselves!"

Ok! But, they might do exactly that, and we might be less than thrilled with the results.

If countries under threat (Taiwan, South Korea, Japan) think that our word is no longer any good, they'll almost certainly feel the need for nuclear arms as the only real deterrent to someone like China. And note, those countries ALL have the necessary economic, industrial and technical wherewithal to go nuclear. All they need do is make the decision.

Others, in the Middle East will want them to deter Iran. How about Saudi Arabia and Egypt? Maybe Libya decides that abandoning their efforts was a mistake. THOSE countries may lack the technology, but they can certainly afford to finance it.

It could just go on and on.

THAT could be a very likely consequence of us deciding to just disengage ourselves from these countries.

We've tried, for a long time, to convince others that they didn't need them, because WE would provide the nuclear umbrella.

When they figure they can't count on us, the whole thing unravels.

If the commenter gets his wish, and they DO take care of themselves, it could get real interesting for us as well.

As we also reside on the same planet, I think it almost impossible we would remain unaffected.

So, standing up for our allies is not just a nice thing to do; it makes the hardest kind of common sense.

Simply put, we protect others in order to protect ourselves.

Abandoning them, selling them out, would be an unbelievably short-sighted (as in STUPID) thing to do, and would hurt us more in the long run. No one would trust an agreement with us; and why should they, given such a record?

Instead of being worth a damn, our word would only be noise.

And that would be tragic, because WE set its' value, by our actions.

If you can't see shades of gray that means you're blind, and that explains your posts. You can't tell who's for you or who's against you, and you can't see that the answer is to criticize the president until he acts like a president. He should just call up Bush and ask him what to do.

Mac Lorry:

Bruce Henry,

Yes I know what SkyBlue is up to. They want to turn the right's criticism of the left back on the right. The flaw in their game is that to do so they have to equate four pirates holding a single civilian to 9/11, the war in Iraq, and Islamic Jihadists fighting a holy war against the United States. Attempting to make such a claim demonstrates the stupidity of their argument. And pointing that out is my game.
