Obama, Graham and Trump all thought the world was in a shit storm


 

What a few years will do to Senator Graham.Donald Trump used tough language and Graham blasts him. Here is Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) calling Mexico a hellhole. Followed in the clip by Sessions feeling the “love.”

Powerline:

Snip…If he (Trump) did, and if doing so hurt America, then Sen. Durbin and others in the room should have kept Trump’s statement to themselves. No patriotic American would hurt this country’s international standing just to embarrass the president or in the hope of gaining a little leverage in negotiations (which, I’m pretty sure, Durbin has failed to do).

But patriotism has never been Dick Durbin’s long suit. During the Bush administration, he compared American soldiers to Nazis, Soviets, and Pol Pot. (See video below).

Now that the alleged “s***hole” comment is out there, we’re starting to hear, inevitably, about comparable remarks made by others. The Daily Caller reminds us that President Obama referred to Libya as a “s***show,” which it surely was. In 2016, Atlantic, quoting Obama, reported:

“So we actually executed this plan as well as I could have expected: We got a UN mandate, we built a coalition, it cost us $1 billion — which, when it comes to military operations, is very cheap. We averted large-scale civilian casualties, we prevented what almost surely would have been a prolonged and bloody civil conflict. And despite all that, Libya is a mess.

Mess is the president’s diplomatic term; privately, he calls Libya a “shit show,” in part because it’s subsequently become an ISIS haven — one that he has already targeted with air strikes. It became a shit show, Obama believes, for reasons that had less to do with American incompetence than with the passivity of America’s allies and with the obdurate power of tribalism.

:Snip…..And if I’m wrong about this — if Trump’s comments have materially harmed the U.S. in its foreign relations — then Dick Durbin should not have let word of the comment leave the room.

    Loose lips sink ships. All of us “of an age” understand this saying, where it came from and how important it is to the safety of our country and citizens. AND…the double standard stinks.

    When we were kids we were taught (by the olde Sicilian rule in life)

    Never be a RAT not even to your enemies

    Keep Your Mouth Shut

    Being a RAT is the lowest form of life

    And in the end…

    No one not even your own people will ever TRUST you again 😉
