On yesterday’s show, time constraints made it impossible for us to discuss the breakdown of talks with Iran about their nuclear program. I did mention that Iran’s new “moderate” leader was tweeting over the weekend about his nation’s “right” to have nuclear weapons, but that was it.
If you haven’t heard, the French were the ones who said the deal wasn’t tough enough on Iran. John “Lurch” Kerry is trying to downplay that, for obvious reasons.
Yesterday on one of the Sunday shows, Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) said that it seemed that the Iranians want the deal more than we do, which is a very bad sign. True dat.
As Barack Obama continues his project of cutting America down to size, the French go from cheese-eating surrender monkeys to world leaders. He is indeed historic.
Until a few days ago, the Obama Administration was insisting that France reimburse us for all airlift and tanker missions flown in support of air ops over Mali. At the time, the bill was somewhere between $17-19 million dollars. Relative chump change, but the French were incensed. Officials in Paris are quick to point out their folks are doing the fighting (and dying) over there. All they’re asking from the U.S. is more airlift to get soldiers, beans and bullets into the war zone, and tanker support to sustain the air bridge to Mali. We should also point out that other NATO allies (notably Great Britain, Canada and Denmark) are providing support to the French without charge.
I can see Obama leading from behind the Greeks, but the French? I mean, really. That’s half of one of Moochelle’s vacations.
Instead, this White House has chosen to lead from behind the French, for Goodness sake. All we get is silence. Silence on Benghazi, silence on Mali, silence on the use of chemical weapons in Syria.
It’s almost like we lost The War on Terror and nobody told us. I can’t think of a thing the enemy would have demanded upon our surrender that we haven’t already given them. And now we have a president that refuses to protect Americans. It’s unprecedented.
I am reminded of Bill Whittle’s speech some time ago:
That is what a president would sound like.
TOTUSis so busy bashing the NRA- there is no time to discuss protection of Americans.
From my friend Rick Moran, a parody of the terrific "God Made a Farmer" ad voiced by Paul Harvey. Voters of Iowa, do you really want this clown representing you? Take it from me, here in the belly of the beast that spawned the ACORN community organizer by way of the Chicago Machine that is destroying our country, you don't.
"We are Conservatives in the undying tradition of America’s Founding Fathers, deeply concerned about the sorry state of our country and the ruinous path our government, political, and cultural elites have taken." So are we, Guys. That's why you are "Blog of the Day."

Five minutes of truth and common sense exposing what our socialist/Marxist friends mean when they claim to be "fighting" for "social justice;" specifically, as Hayek so cogently observed, under the intellectual laziness and political opportunism of the term, the dirty little secret is that it means that freedom must be sacrificed to redistribute income.
