Obama's Team Of Conformists

Opinion - December 8th, 2008 - Wall Street Journal

"A political dialogue with Iran should not be deferred until such a time as the deep differences over Iranian nuclear ambitions and its invidious involvement with regional conflicts has been resolved."

Was this candidate Obama, urging talks with Tehran without preconditions? Not at all: It is the recommendation of a 2004 Council on Foreign Relations-sponsored task force on Iran, led by Zbigniew Brzezinski and his erstwhile protege, Robert Gates.

This would be the same Robert Gates who spent months as a member of the bipartisan Iraq Study Group, which warned against deploying more troops. In a not-so-small irony of history, Mr. Gates was pulled from the ISG to lead the Defense Department -- and enjoy credit for the surge -- just weeks before the ISG's report became public.

The American people have truly become total buffoons. We are so happy to be winning in Iraq that we will even give credit to someone who opposed the strategy that worked. Robert Gates has proved with his participation in the Council on Foreign Relations attempt to subvert the very war he is now claiming credit for winning, that he is two things. One, not fit to lead our nation's Defense Department at a time of war. And two, as duplicitous and two faced as the Magic Marxist Messiah who is keeping him on.

Barack Obama admires "two faced" and "duplicitous". What I cannot understand is how Michael Steele and Bill Bennett and Rush Limabugh and various other Republicans can be so "happy" at Obama's cabinet appointments. Have they not read his Alinsky strategy? Do they not understand how they are being conned? Has Republican leadership truly sunk to such an incomeptent level of gullible buffoons?
