Remember back in 2010, after the Gulf Oil Spill, when Obama did that interview in which he said he needed to figure “whose ass to kick?” (Video here.) Well, it appears that he has no problem knowing whose ass to kiss. From the Washington Free Beacon, by the inimitable Bill Gertz:
President Barack Obama two years ago rejected a series of tough actions against China, including counter-cyber attacks and economic sanctions, for Beijing’s aggressive campaign of cyber espionage against the U.S. government and private businesses networks, according to administration officials.
The piece goes on to describe the One’s kid gloves approach toward to dealing with Chinese, and quotes John Bolton, who notes that treating these obviously state-sponsored cyber attacks sounds a lot like the way we treated the head chopping Islamic fanatic maniacs for decades before 9/11/01.
It also mentions Rep. Mike Rogers (R-M), Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, and his appearance on ABC’s “This Week” on 2/24/13. We played the audio on the 2/24/13 edition of “The Teri O’Brien Show.”
Barack Obama has demonstrated zero desire to stop spending. He has run $1 trillion deficits every year he has been in office, financed by money borrowed from the Chinese. Ben Bernancke is keeping this economic house of cards standing by printing beaucoups de loot, and if you think the economy is bad now, imagine what would happen if interest rates when up. We have a nearly $17 trillion debt, a lot of it owed to the Chinese. If you were our Sham WOW (Walks on Water) occupant of the Oval Office, and you were determined to throw billions down a gazillion social welfare and green energy ratholes, would you get tough with China? Of course you wouldn’t!
National security is one thing, but we need universal pre-kindergarten! And there’s also Bo’s Chief of Staff, who earns $100,000 plus.
