Not worthy of consideration by the “liberal” media
Yesterday, Vice President Joe Biden made a lot of sense. But you wouldn’t know that from The Daily Show and The Last Wordon MSNBC. (I’m sure Faux Nooz and its satellite in egregious stupidity, CNN had pithy comments, too, but who wants to risk their sentience in THAT intellectual cesspool?) Here’s the only part of the speech that inspired the juvenalia of the fake news and supposedly NOT fake news:
President Obama has said, and I quote, “now is the time to let our increased pressure sink in, and to sustain the broad international coalition we have built. Now is the time to heed the timeless advice from Teddy Roosevelt: ‘speak softly and carry a big stick.’” I promise you the President has a big stick. (Laughter.) I promise you.
Haw haw! We’s deep in teh intelecktshul now, am we?
Over at the Maddow Blog, Steve Benen has released part Fifteen of his series on Mitt Romney’s mendacity, lies and dissimulations.
But, you know, what’s important is sniggering like Beavis and Butthead: “He said ‘big stick’ heh heh heh. Big stick. He means DICK. heh heh heh.”
But this part? Not important. No dick jokes in it:
Three and a half years ago, when President Obama and I took office, and stepped into that Oval Office, our nation had been engaged in two wars for the better part of a decade. Al Qaeda was resurgent and Osama bin Laden was at large. Our alliances were dangerously frayed. And our economy -– the foundation of our national security -– was on the precipice of a new Depression.
President Obama began to act immediately. He set in motion a policy to end the war in Iraq responsibly. He set a clear strategy and an end date for the war in Afghanistan, which has been going on for close to a decade. He cut in half the number of Americans who are literally serving in harm’s way. He decimated al Qaeda’s senior leadership. He repaired our alliances and restored America’s standing in the world and he saved our economy. He saved our economy from collapse with some very unpopular but bold decisions that have turned out to be right, including the rescue of the automobile industry, all of which has made us much stronger not only at home but abroad.
If you’re looking for a bumper sticker to sum up how President Obama has handled what we inherited, it’s pretty simple: Osama bin Laden is dead and General Motors is alive. (Applause.)
Governor Romney’s national security policies, in our view, would return us to a past we’ve worked so hard to move beyond. And, in this regard, there is no difference in what Governor Romney says and what he has proposed for our economy than he has done in foreign policy. In every instance, in our view, he takes us back to the failed policies that got us into the mess that President Obama has dug us out of, and the mess that got us into this in the first place.
Dang! No dick jokes!
The Daily Show was the MOST adult of the juveniles in the room, playing the clip without comment.
All right. To be fair O’Donnell’s The Last Word segment did get to this part. And they had the typically “serious” discussion that we’ve come to expect from the castrati media studs.
Faux Nooz was predictable, and here’s a short montage of a snort montage:
But, really, if dick jokes are all that it’s come to, then who am I to fight against a tide of madness? Might as well surf:
But it’s not like it hasn’t been out there all along, with a logo that looks like a limp blue dick:
Not so big stick
Note that I’ve been more generous to Willard than his campaign was.
