"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." -- Theodore Roosevelt

Biden Believes America Bashing and Apologies Will Keep us Safe

Check out this AP article. Just to remind everyone that political naivety goes well beyond Obama himself in this administration, Biden has said that Bush and Cheney made the US unsafe.

According to Biden, "the last administration left us in a weaker posture than we've been any time since World War II: less regarded in the world, stretched more thinly than we ever have been in the past, two wars under way, virtually no respect in entire parts of the world."

Hmmm. I'm not sure how much this sort of respect makes us safe. I mean, "oh no... the French are acting arrogant and blindly self-righteous again! How unsafe we all are!" While it's certainly nice for France and other fickle "allies" to respect us, what keeps the US safe is when Iran, North Korea, Venezuela and Islamic extremists, and the rest of our enemies respect us.

Biden continues, "And so we've been about the business of repairing and strengthening those. I guarantee you we are safer today, our interests are more secure today than they were any time during the eight years."

Yeah... releasing the Gitmo terrorists back into the general population makes me feel safe. Oh, and the hand-picked shills (h/t to Pat at So it goes in Shreveport) at Obama's "town hall" meetings in France and Turkey were all very happy and supportive. Again I feel safer. I know that if Iran gives an atomic bomb to Hamas that those French shills from that meeting will be behind us 100%. Right?

Well, let's not forget Biden's words. Put these in the files right beside Obama's attempt to throw US veterans under his bus for about $540 million.

The problem is Obama doesn't see our enemies as enemies, naively believes that a few arrogant, hollow, and friendly words (coupled with toadying America bashing/apologizing) are enough to sway them to "start liking us again," and that selling out Israel and pretty much anybody else who isn't popular enough with the American left will keep us safe. It's like immature high school popularity wars being played out as international policy. Is Obama taking his policy cues from Mean Girls?
