Barack Obama – The Audacity of BS

John Howard, the Australian Prime Minister has repeatedly shown that he “gets it” when it comes to the war on terror; of course the Aussies have had there own issues with the world’s Jihadist thugs. Yesterday Howard reacted to the Obama candidacy by stating that Al Qaeda in Iraq would be thrilled with an Obama Presidency and that they should “put a circle around March 2008 and be praying as many times as possible for a victory not only for Obama but also for the Democrats." Al Qaeda’s use of asymetrical warfare makes me inclined to think that Al Qaeda in Iraq is actively praying for a political victory for the Democrats. The foes of liberty do not need to be victorious in any real fashion but the simple exhibition of mayhem is enough to make many here in America feel that all is lost and that we should run away. The desire for a world that always gives in to religious sadists is truly alarming and Barack Obama is a leading proponent of that vision in an increasingly masochistic Democratic Party. Flying Debris commented on Senator Obama’s refusal to support freedom and liberty for others in Obama on Mid-East: Let Them Eat Falafels!

What Mr. Howard may not realize is that Senator Obama would have the US bugging out of Iraq already; during a November 2005 speech to the Chicago Council on Foreign Relations the Senator stated “(f)irst and foremost, after the December 15 elections and during the course of next year, we need to focus our attention on how reduce the U.S. military footprint in Iraq.” At a repeat appearance at the freshly renamed Chicago Council on Global Affairs the Senator called for the US to commence withdrawing from Iraq this year. Then during the announcement of his Presidential candidacy Senator Obama said “(t)hat's why I have a plan that will bring our combat troops home by March of 2008.”

Yesterday Senator Obama told Al Qaeda in Iraq that if they can just hold out for another thirteen months while continuing to light off a few bombs every day or so that they are largely home free. He also told the people in Iraq who have been fighting against the forces of tyranny that their efforts will be for naught thirteen months from now if he gets his way. He has told the Iraqis who are fighting for their liberty that he will support those who want to kill them. Senator Obama is smart enough to not phrase his ideas in that way but I would bet Dinars to Dollars that the Iraqi people are smart enough to know what the Senator actually said.

I owe a big hat tip to the Gateway Pundit, who wrote a typically great piece on PM Howard’s comments and posted it at some ungodly hour this morning.

Update: While doing some research for this post I ran across some more Obama bs that that should not be left uncommented on. It seems that Mr. Obama has taken to passing on at least one moonbat conspiracy theory; but he sounds so wonderful while telling fables that it just makes one want to swoon.
