Obama on Fighting a War While Picking Up a Peace Prize: "Kitten, I think what I'm saying, is that sometimes, shit happens, someone has to deal with it, and who ya gonna call? "

That's a quote from Ghostbusters 2. It applies so perfectly to so many situations.

He should have said that, and accepted the prize on behalf of the real peacemakers, the men and women of the United States armed forces.


But of course he didn't. He did say "I face the world as it is," which is hardly Churchillian, or even Venkmanian, in resolve. Rather than setting his chin against the enemy, Obama gives them a resigned shrug. Sounds like a 16 year old girl: "Yeahhh.... see, I sort of surged troops into Afghanistan. (exaggerated cringey face) Do you hate me?"

In related news, Obama homogenized his two wars with a cute story about a labrador retriever that "adopted" three adorable bunny-babies.

I find it impossible to pretend that Obama's words mean anything but Tom Maguire and AllahPundit do a good job of playing along.

Here's some meaninglessness for you:

But we do not have to think that human nature is perfect for us to still believe that the human condition can be perfected. We do not have to live in an idealized world to still reach for those ideals that will make it a better place. The non-violence practiced by men like Gandhi and King may not have been practical or possible in every circumstance, but the love that they preached – their faith in human progress – must always be the North Star that guides us on our journey.


I would say something about this being an example of socialist utopianism but I really think it's about as meaningful as a baby's burp.
