And not to toot my own horn - well, okay, I am tootin’ – butt I first covered this cheeky move way back in 2012: “Visas, Volts, and Cheeky Ads.”
And speaking of big butts,
I see that Hillary is trying to haul hers out of a deep crevice by distancing herself from Barry’s failed Peace Policies in the Middle East:
Clinton attributed the rise of jihadists affiliated with Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS or ISIL) in Syria to the White House's "failure" to do more to back other rebels who have been fighting the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad since 2011.
"The failure to help build up a credible fighting force of the people who were the originators of the protests against Assad—there were Islamists, there were secularists, there was everything in the middle—the failure to do that left a big vacuum, which the jihadists have now filled," Clinton said.
Well thanks for that insight; too bad you didn’t have it at the time. Oh wait…what?! You did!?
In the Atlantic interview, Clinton noted she "advocated" doing more to support a "core group" of Free Syrian Army fighters opposed to Assad. She argued this would have, potentially, helped oust the Syrian leader and would have given the U.S. better knowledge of the situation in the country.
Too bad she didn’t mention that at the time. Oh, and speaking of other things she failed to mention at the time, there’s this about Iran’s nuclear program – she didn’t agree with that either:
"I’ve always been in the camp that held that they did not have a right to enrichment. Contrary to their claim, there is no such thing as a right to enrich.
A right to the Big Portabella (h/t Dennis Miller)
Yeah, the right to enrich is reserved exclusively for our political class.
And finally, with a shot at Big Guy’s fundamental philosophy, Hillz said this:
"Great nations need organizing principles, and 'Don’t do stupid stuff' is not an organizing principle."
Although I would say that if we would stick with that principle we would be in much better shape.
Then Hillz added that her own “organizing principle” is: “Peace, progress, and prosperity.”
Not to be picky, butt that sounds a lot more like a campaign slogan than an organizing principle.
In fact, I think it was one of Barry’s. Butt hey – what difference at this point does it make?
