Hell breaks loose all over the world, the economy stinks, and we’re going broke. But the president parties, yuks it up with Letterman and skips intelligence briefings. All the while, the press sees no evil.
Rod Serling called the TV fantasyland he made famous a “middle ground between light and shadow,” a “wondrous land of imagination.” Like the “Twilight Zone,” in the alternate dimension of the “ObamaMedia,” the unearthly laws of physics never allow the buck to stop on the president’s desk.
American weakness, which in recent months has become obvious to enemy and friend alike, has invited aggression and sparked mayhem from the Mideast to Europe to Asia in recent days.
It only began with the killing of our ambassador to Libya and three other Americans, spreading to Egypt where Islamists invaded the embassy and ripped down the stars and stripes. (Until the Obama era, of course, Egypt was our ally and Libya had become dormant after being pressured into abandoning its nuclear program.)
Subsequently, anti-American violence has sprung up in Pakistan, where Islamists broke into the U.S. consulate in Karachi. Rioters shouting “death to America” have clashed with security forces outside a U.S. base in Afghanistan and near the U.S. embassy in Indonesia.
