VICTORY? WHAT?

Posted by Andrew Roman on September 27, 2009

obama the cowardly lionThere is no need for in-depth analysis here.

There is nothing that necessitates a detailed breakdown by anyone in the punditocracy.

In this case, the President of the United States is as clear as the san-serif font on his teleprompters. In fact, unlike the text that scrolls across the face of his electronic cue-cards, his words, in this instance, are not empty or vapid. Dare I say it … there is not a stitch of ambiguity in what the Commander-In-Chief of the United States Armed Forces is saying.

With the recent revalation that the nation of Iran has kept a secret nuclear plant hidden from UN inspectors for many moons, Barack Obama has taken a page from the I’m-A-Lover-Not-A-Fighter songbook and made it clear that he is not looking for, nor does he want, victory against Iran.

I actually had to pause to allow that concept to sufficiently sink in.

Victory is not what the current Iranian crisis is about, according the President of the United States.

(Think about that for a moment).

The President did not imply it or indirectly suggest that victory wasn’t his aim – he actually came right out and said it, in those very words.

He is “not interested in victory.”

Just like that.

It can hardly be misinterpreted.

If there are words more gutless, more disgusting, that one can hear come out of the mouth of the President of the United States (other than “I Barack Obama, do solemnly swear ….), I’d like to know what they are.

Here was the brief exchange between The One and a reporter:

REPORTER: You just mentioned sanctions that have bite. What kind of sanctions –and I know you can’t get into detail – but what kind of sanctions at all would have bite with Iran? Do you really think any kind of sanction would have an effect on somebody like Ahmadinejad?

Secondly, some of your advisors today said that this announcement was a “victory.” Do you consider it a victory? And if so, why didn’t you announce it earlier since you’ve known since you’re President-elect?

OBAMA: Uh … This isn’t a football game. So, I’m not interested in victory. I’m interested in resolving the problem. The problem is that Iran repeatedly says that it is pursuing nuclear energy for peaceful purposes, and its actions contradict its words. 

Stunned.

Or maybe I shouldn’t be.

Take another moment to let it sink in … The President of the United States of America – the most powerful man in the most powerful nation on Earth – has publicly asserted, in no uncertain terms, that he does not seek victory against a rogue nation whose government not only slaughters its own citizens on the streets, but openly backs terrorism, has called for the destruction of Israel, has a thug madman as its President, poses a genuine threat to its neighbors and the world oil supply, and is on the brink of having the capability of producing nuclear weapons.

Rather, he’s interested in resolving the problem – whatever that means.

Without victory.

What the hell is he talking about?

I haven’t the inclination or patience to try and parse the messiah’s words. Sometimes, taking things at face value is more than enough.

Let us hope that Obama’s interest in victory carries over to the election of 2012.

    No idea where you found that picture, but that is hilarious. As far what obama is talking about, I stopped listening months ago.

      I’m sorry. is there something unusual about the picture? What am I missing?

      😉

      You’re a smart man, incidentally. I need to stop listening to Obama as well. My ulcers will thanks me for it.
