Obama's Higher Powers (Kat-Mo)

There were so many things that I could pick apart about Obama on the debate. McCain, too, for that matter, had a few items I was thinking he should have picked up on and hammered Obama in the head with it.

However, my favorite line was when McCain hammered him about meeting certain people who are screaming anti-American tyrants without any pre-conditions. When Obama tried to claim everyone meets with foreign powers, McCain explained to him that there was a difference between some low level flunkies getting together in a room to exchange messages and sitting down to a tet-e-tet with the leader of a country that is a professed enemy of the United States and its allies.

You do not give that person or their crazy ideas any gravitas in public where the media can record you sitting there with your mouth open while the nut job lectures a sitting president about all the evils of your nation, your allies or the "rights" of a tyrannical regime to do evil things.

You. Just. Don't. Do. It. Period. End of story.

The entire damn world knows it. Even the French wouldn't be caught dead with a Chirac or Sarkozy having a photo op with Ahmedinejad.

McCain beat Obama with a two ton clue bat. The moment showed that Obama hasn't got a clue how foreign relations really works.

Obama showed both his arrogance and his naivety when he tried to cover why meeting Ahmedinejad would be exactly like meeting some low level Iranian state flunky. Besides, he seemed to be claiming, Ahmedinejad doesn't have any real power. There is a higher power that Obama would like to talk to.

Let's back that up a bit. Ahmedinejad does have plenty of power. Obama is a complete idiot for saying otherwise. Ahmedinejad has stacked the Iranian Assembly and key government departments with his old pals from the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (not Republican Guard, Sen. Obumble-mumble, and that's just another point). Men from this same group have been placed in charge of universities, unions (the few allowed), news agencies and are mayors of various cities including Tehran. He even replaced the leaders of the Basij (that would be an Iranian paramilitary group, Sen.) with his own.

Ahmedinejad has plenty of power. He has even helped to place ideological compatriots on the governing theocrat board of directors. Most importantly, though, no matter what, Ahmedinejad is the public face and recognized leader of Iran by the rest of the world. As much as it would be nice to just consider him another ayatollah ass kisser who's sole power is to get on his knees for his job, that is simply not reality.

He isn't just any flunky of the Iranian regime. He is THE flunky and meeting with him is the same as meeting with Gordon Brown or Medvedyev. Regardless of the real internal power structures, this man is "it". And, you simply do not give him the gravitas of the Leader of the Free World for nothing but a lecture on western sins.

The second issue is Obama's incredibly naive explanation that Ahmedinejad isn't the guy you need to sit down and talk with any way. You know, since he has no power.

Obama is suggesting that he's going to have a chat with Khamenei, Ayatollah Khomeini's ideological heir. First, I'm not convinced that Obama even knows the guy's name or how he got to be the head of the Guardians Council. Obama doesn't even have a clue that this guy Khamenei would find it highly amusing that an Obama administration might even ask.

He wouldn't meet with a foreign infidel in this lifetime or the next, regardless. He's the f*cking spiritual leader of the Islamic Revolution. He talks to Allah (no, not the guy over at Hotair). He doesn't give flying pile of horse shit that Oprah called Obama "The One". He's not going to "taint" himself with meeting a representative of Satan. Even the head Satan.

You know what would happen if an Obama administration asked to meet face to face with Khamenei? If Obumble-mumble was lucky, his request would simply go unanswered. That's hoping that Obumble-mumble didn't make the request public, but did it through back channels. If he was unlucky, no matter how quiet the request, the Iranians would make the request public and still not answer.

Khamenei would make Obama his bitch. In public. The Islamists like Hezbollah would be repeating it from one end of the ME to the other, showing their followers and wanna be's the power of the Ayatollah to dis the President of the United States. See, he comes on bended knee to the most powerful man in the Middle East. Whatever Syria was thinking about their US relationship, they'd hedge into the Iranian camp further.

Our other allies in the region would get real hinky. Fast. The Sauds' would start looking towards China for a strong protector even more and the Israelis would dust off their last ditch "how to blow Iran to smithereens before we are all blown to hell" plan. Far from promoting stability in the Middle East, such an event would give Iran instant prestige. And, they wouldn't even have to talk to Obama.

To finish that up, America's prestige on the world stage would not be enhanced. It would be in the shitter. NK would be the next to follow suit with the non-response and the rest of the idiots would be laughing their asses off figuring the US finally got what they had coming for decades of arrogance. No amount of speeches at the Brandenberg Gate will cure that.

Want to talk to China about our trade deficit? Sure, sure...they'll back to you when President Hu isn't so busy.

Would one of Obumble's 300 advisers explain to him that his election as the first black president in United States history does not, pardon the pun, white wash two hundred years of history? Not in the eyes of these folks who will just see Obumbles as a continuation of the same.

That's Obama's true arrogance and naivety. He thinks he will some how sooth the savage beasts with the deep, comforting resonance of his voice. Just his presence in the White House will have the trans-formative powers of Jesus casting demons out and calming the raging waters.

Somebody tell this jackass that this isn't some children's bedtime story where all the people just have to talk to each other and they turn in to best buds forever. This isn't even community organizing in Chicago. I know that can be tough, but ACORN ain't gonna help this time.

Obama must still be suffering from hypoxia related hallucinations from his little sojourn at Mile High Stadium. That, or all the chanting of his name must have given him an overblown sense of his own "higher powers".

By the way...is this one of those "tough decisions" he's going to have to make because he hasn't got a clue what he'd really do?
