Democrats’ pathologies are handed down through their presidentcies.
In Clinton 1 it was just sexual relations that the president did not engage in. But Clinton lust is infectious and for our, pure, Obama, our Clinton 2, it blossomed into “foreign relations” that the president did not engage in.
Obama was asked: the American people repeatedly tell you that you did nothing to save the Syrian people from a tyrant and mass murderer – would that be a lie? Obama “Clintonesque”: “It’s certainly not the truth.”
Then, Obama channeled Jimmy Carter: And so when it came to Syria, Obama having “looked on lots of evil dictators with lust”, then “committed ‘red – line’ removal in his heart many times.”
Obama proudly testifies to America his control: “I did not engage in sexual , er, military relations with that Bully – that Assad.”
Obama lectures: “Our proper job is to stop Bullies, right here, in America’s playgrounds – not in foreign lands.” So, Obama proudly left those Bullies – alone: Putin to his bombing and the Hisbollah militia and Iranian Revolutionary Guards to their foreign sandlot!
Now, we’ve seen this movie before – the Three Stooges foreign policy strategy. Obama acts out Mo of the Three Stooges: “If Russia, Iran, Hisbollah and Assad dare to hit our moderate, anti-Assad, rebel forces – well then, we are going to slap Isis !”
So, the American people cry out: Is there a commitment to remove Assad that means anything? And the great Clinton infection, having spread to Obama, leaves us with great clarity: “That depends on what the meaning of ‘is’ is.”
But a Clinton 3 does that line one better:
QUESTION: “Have you always told the truth”?
CLINTON: “ I’ve always tried to” !
Clinton 3 now makes America an offer it can’t refuse. She 3 offers America Adlai’s bargain (sort of):
‘If you’ll stop telling the truth about me, I’ll stop telling lies to you.’
Clinton 3 and America strikes out.
