Obama Blathers About Foreign Policy Some

I need to get up a post, and Noah C. Rothman has a good one, so read that.

George Stephanopolous asks one decent question here, and then, of course, fails to ask it properly. He reads Obama a quote from his own book, the one he actually wrote, or, rather, the one he had a ghostwriter other than Bill Ayers to write, in which Obama says of the Bush Administration foreign policy:

Without a well-articulated strategy that the public supports and the world understands, America will lack legitimacy and ultimately the power it needs to make the world safer than it is today.

Stephanopolous focuses on the stupidest part of this quote -- the bit about public support. This gives Obama the easiest possible way out, as he just handwaves away the polls.

Which frankly isn't terribly objectionable.

Why didn't George Stephanopolous ask about the first part of that bromide -- that America's policy needs to be well-articulated so that the world understands?

Has George Stephanopolous not heard the criticism that Obama has no foreign policy strategy whatsoever, but instead responds almost randomly to crises according to what Twitter's thinking that day?

Did he not hear that when Obama aides were confronted on precisely what Obama's policy was, all they could muster as a coherent foreign policy was "Don't do stupid shit"?

I guess not.

Incidentally, last week Megyn Kelly crucified barely-qualified State Department mouthpiece Marie Larf over Obama's assertion that ISIS/ISIL was merely the "J.V.," the junior varsity, and therefore not worthy of America's concern.

Obama made this statement just this past January. In five months, according to Larf and Obama, ISIS went from the junior varsity to the L.A. Lakers of terrorism.

The exact quote, when asked about the threat posed by ISIS, was this:

The analogy we use around here sometimes, and I think is accurate, is if a jayvee team puts on Lakers uniforms that doesn't make them Kobe Bryant.

That's your President. Smaaahhht.

George could have asked about that, too.

I guess he forgot.

Watch below as Megyn Kelly makes Larf look just silly.

Cops in Mississippi just got a warrant to arrest Megyn Kelly for Exploitation of a Vulnerable Adult.

Which Renn Fair and/or Poetry Slam did they find this absurd woman at?
