Obama Caves to Fanatical Left

Obama Intelligence Pick Torpedoed By Bloggers - FOXNews.com Transition Tracker

John Brennan, Obama's chief intelligence adviser and anticipated CIA chief, was recently forced to withdraw his name. There was no drumbeat of opposition to Brennan from the front pages or on cable. Rather, the pick was torpedoed by the blogosphere.

"Apparently there is a lot of pressure on the Obama team from a blog saying that Brennan couldn't be made the director of the CIA because he was involved in torture and renditions, which he wasn't," said Mark Lowenthal, former assistant CIA director.

Very bad sign.  One of the first challenges a new president faces is dealing with the extremists in his own party--or on the fringes of his own party.  Ronald Reagan had the John Birchers whom he deftly defied and ignored.  Clinton, before his election, shouted down Sister Soljah.  George W. Bush went a step further, pissing off his core supporters by spending like a drunken sailor for 8 years. 

While Obama seems determined to go forward with the Rick Warren invitation, he has folded to left-wing bloggers over his choice for Director of Central Intelligence.  Not good.

America is at war with Islamofascist murders.  This war requires a strong, skilled, and experienced CIA director.  So far, Obama has failed to make any major intelligence appointments, indicating that foreign policy was not a strategic objective of his campaign.  (Clinton as SECSTATE was purely political and likely offered in August.)

Other than this retreat, Obama's pre-Inaugural work has been uniformly outstanding, all things considered.  He has assembled a centrist cabinet, for the most part, and allowed W to twist in the wind over the economy--which his cronies destroyed.   But now the left is on his case.  How he deals with the radicals whom he encouraged for 2 years will determine to a large degree the success of his administration. 

For America's sake, let's hope he tells them to bugger off.

Disgraceful, Selfish Cowards *UPDATE*

Flag_Distress Liberal America is a sub-species of selfish cowards. 

India suffered its own 9-11 over the past 3 days.  It continues at this hour.  Yet America's government, its media, its pundits retreated under the cover of Thanksgiving and the excuse of saving their corrupt and incompetent friends on Wall Street and in Detroit.   George Bush and Barack Obama are invisible.  CNN and MSNBC refused to call the terrorists who murdered over 160 in cold blood anything stronger than "militants." 

In New Jersey, a throng of selfish, money-grubbing Main Streeters killed an old man in Wal-Mart in order to get an HDTV at 30 percent off.  The cowardly President and his cowardly relief are silent.

You, Liberal-American, you are a disgrace to your heritage, to your history, to your parents and grandparents.  You are weak and cowardly.  You would hide behind a child to save your own worthless hide.  Indians die in the streets, and you stuff your pie hole with overcooked turkey.

The Muslim murderers are marching across England, France, and Germany, and you drink bottled water and fret over global temperatures.  A sweet, meek Rabbi and his wife are bound, gagged, and shot in the head while you rushed into a Best Buy for a camcorder.  Will you use it film the Rabbi's baby, Moses?   And to whom would you show the footage.   Do you think your fellow American gives a rat's ass about a Jewish orphan?

So, Merry Christmas to the disarmed, green, selfish wimps.   They are the face of America.  They are the next victim in the Muslim wave that threatens 5,000 years of civilization's advance.  They are obsequious, spineless scum who pass you every day in the mall. 

Look in the mirror, watch a John Wayne movie or Brave Heart or The Patriot this long weekend.  Lock yourself in your bathroom for a couple of hours and weep bitterly.   You have betrayed your birthright, your heritage, and your brother.  Your children should be ashamed to have sprung from your loins. 

But it's not too late.  There is time.  Little, but some.  What happened in Mumbai was practice for New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, St. Louis.  They are coming, and it's us or them.  There will be only one victor.

*UPDATE*  I've thought enough about this.  It's time to nuke the Western provinces of Pakistan.  It's time to let one of our fine Trident submarine crews to release the fury of 24 MIRVed SLBMs on an enemy that will not relent until it's vaporized.

Let the vaporization begin.
