Michele ‘bat-shit insane’ Bachmann (R-MN) – ‘GOP Moron of the Day’

Via: The Raw Story

1

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) refused to concede on the idea that ex-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton could be the prohibitive favorite in the 2016 presidential race, citing the biblical story of David and Goliath in a radio interview.

“All David needed was one smooth stone to fell the giant,” Bachmann told Christian radio host Jan Markell. “It wasn’t the stone, it wasn’t David, it was the strong right arm of a holy God. And, again, I believe that it’s, in some ways, up to us — if we repent, if we cry out to God, we have no idea what the Lord God will do for us in 2016.”

President Obama’s Brilliant Strategy No One Seems To Recognize

As the media interprets recent events as Obama’s march to war, America and the world falls for it hook, line and sinker.

Say what you want about Obama but he is a very smart man. He would never ask permission he did not need from Congress to launch a strike on Syria unless he knew beyond a doubt he could get it. That is if his real intentions were to actually carry out military operations.

But why on earth does it appear he wants this war?

After agonizing over this question over and over I began to realize there is only one logical explanation. HE DOESE NOT!

Only a month ago the GOP was accusing Obama of being weak for not acting when the “red line” was crossed. There was pressure for him not only from the US but from the world as well. The reputation of the great American defender was on the line. Still it was obvious at the time Obama did not want to rush into another quagmire, bogging down the rest of his tenure as our nation’s leader. But the evidence kept rolling in. He had to do something not only for his reputation as a world leader but for the United States as well.

Cue the British Parliament to provide Obama with the perfect out.

Just days after Britain’s governing body eliminated any joint action with the US to participate in a coalition to strike the Assad regime, Obama made a surprising and decisive move.

Against the advice of all his advisors, he put any US participation in the hands of our do-nothing Congress with no chance they would give him the approval he needed. Not because it isn’t the right thing to do but because Obama was asking for it. The outcome is a given if you just take a step back and look at the situation rationally. And there is no way Obama is going to launch this attack once Congress says no. It would be political suicide. Bush may have gotten away with it but America is not going to let it happen again. The fallout would signal the end of any and all effectiveness the Obama administration for the remaining years of his presidency. And history would place him with the likes of war criminals like George W. Bush and Dick Cheney. Let me repeat this. Obama is not that stupid!

Tell me this isn’t the best outcome ever. And I honestly think this was Obama’s intention from the beginning. You know damn well if he didn’t do anything, Republicans would be calling him weak because of the corner he had painted himself in when he talked about the red line.

Granted, Obama made a mistake with his “red line” comment, but by acting in a calm savvy manner, he can come out looking the part of the tough guy without even taking a swing. And he smiles as Congress (suckas!) does for him what he wanted in the first place.

If America could just set down their pitchforks and torches for a moment, they would be able to see what brilliant strategy this is.

personal thought:

The Republican/Teabagger/Libertarian Party has been wanting to impeach the President for being a Communist/Muslim/Kenyan, Bengazi, and Obamacare – well, SOL!

Q: But impeachment for bombing Syria?

A: Yeah,I think it would’ve passed in the House. The Senate of course wouldn’t of gone along; but the damage would of been done.

Brilliant, Mr. President, Brilliant!

Ole Ahlberg (born 1949) is a Danish painter with a growing international audience. His painting has undergone a distinct development during the last few years. And his road to fame has involved using Hergé’s famous comic book characters such as Tintin and Haddock in a new artistic context. Tintin meets Ole Ahlberg’s femmes fatales! Erotic? You bet!

The Danish artist, Ole Ahlberg, was sued by Moulinsart (Tintin’s copyright holders), for using images of Tintin and the Thompson Twins in his art. They lost. This dates back to 2001, when the artist was opening a show of his art in Brussels with the wife of the Danish prime minister when Moulinsart’s lawyers demanded the offending images be removed. Ahlberg refused and the case went to court where the Judge found in the artists favour on the grounds that parody is allowable under Belgian and international copyright law.
