About the so-called “Deal,” the nuclear agreement with Iran that is supposed to prevent them from getting nuclear weapons — I had an exchange with foursquare in Part II of this mini-series (here).
In that very cordial exchange (foursquare and I are fans of each other) I posted a reply that I think falls squarely in the “It’s Worth Repeating” category.
Here is that reply:
I’m reminded of what, I think, President Coolidge said: “Don’t just do something, stand there!”
The point: it’s usually far better to do nothing than to do the wrong thing.
It’s certain that to negotiate with gibbering baboons, and to trust them to be reliable, or honorable, partners in any kind of “deal” sure seems like the height of folly.
Of course, it’s always possible that Obama just doesn’t care. Between you and me, I’m pretty sure that Obama does not have the best interests of this country in mind whenever he does anything. If he did, then how could absolutely everything he does always fail so miserably?
At some point, you begin to think that many on the American left consider Obama’s abject massive failures — on the economy, jobs, foreign policy, race relations — to be actual successes.
The only alternative to the “Obama is anti-American” hypothesis is the “Obama is really stupid” hypothesis.
Take your pick; neither is a very heartening thing.
