P.J. Does Obama

How About P. J. O'Rourke

Res Ipsa Loquitor

Given that hypocrisy is an important part of diplomacy, and diplomacy is necessary to foreign policy, allow me to congratulate you on your reelection.

I wish I could also congratulate you on your conduct of international affairs. I do thank you for killing Osama bin Laden. It was a creditable action for which you deserve some of the credit you’ve been given.

But the worst thing that you’ve done internationally is what you’ve done domestically. You sent a message to America in your reelection campaign. Therefore you sent a message to the world. The message is that we live in a zero-sum universe.
Of course the intelligence was gathered, and the mission was undertaken, by men and women who, although they answer to your command, answer to duty first. And it’s difficult to imagine any president of the United States who, under the circumstances, wouldn’t have ordered the strike against bin Laden. Although there is Jimmy Carter. Thank you for not being Jimmy Carter.

But even though it violates the insincere amity that creates a period of calm following national elections, no thank you for the following, and it is only a partial list: [P.J. Continued]

The other funniest thing I heard yesterday is that  New York Gov. Cuomo Jr. is positioning himself for the 2016 elections even further left than Obama and Hillary.  It seems he has found the portal into some nether world.

Picture the child of P.J. O'Rourke and Ann Coulter.

To show how old I am I remember reading about "Mercantilism" when I was in Junior High School. Basically it was explained to me as a country's policy of selling processed and manufactured stuff to other countries
in exchange for gold, silver, or commodities and never paying out money to other countries. So now it looks like all the countries in the world are in competition to devalue their currencies lower than the others so they have an edge for export sales. Apparently the winner gets Hyperinflation? Thank you Obama and Ben.

The only favor that asshole Cuomo did for anyone the other day when he signed that law into effective is:

He blew up ANY chance he had for President.


P.S. They retroactively made the ban of any magazine that holds more than 7 shots back a year. Just so any recently bought couldn't be grandfathered.

But, better yet that didn't make any allowance for Police Officers in the Bill. So now every Cop or Law Enforcement Officer in the State is violating the law.

Not only the police are in violation of the law, so is the US Olympic biathlon tem, which trains in Lake Placid. Hell of a lob, Cuomo !

I guess they'll have to think fast to come up with somebody to arrest the police. Maybe some accountants? Or, maybe some clerks from the DMV.

Dumbasses. If their brains were made of leather, there wouldn't be enough to make a saddle for a flea.
