How Obama Can Save His Shattered Presidency — Bomb Iran!!!

This brilliant advice comes from Daniel Pipes, described in this article as a “neoconservative scholar.” They don’t make scholars like they used to.

Our Racist Chickenhawk du jour says:

“Here is an idea for Barack Obama to salvage his tottering administration by taking a step that protects the United States and its allies. He needs a dramatic gesture to change the public perception of him as a light-weight, bumbling ideologue, preferably in an arena where the stakes are high, where he can take charge, and where he can trump expectations. Such an opportunity does exist. Obama can give orders for the U.S. military to destroy Iran’s nuclear-weapon capacity.”

Daniel Pipes’ previous claim to fame was to go after a New York City public school for the heinous crime of teaching Arab culture to students. The school principal finally resigned after Pipes’ longrunning slander campaign against the school.

In addition to being somewhere to the right of the Ku Klux Klan, Daniel Pipes is also a lying sack of shit. Even if Obama followed Pipes’ wacko advice, it wouldn’t improve his standing among the teabirthers.

If Barack Obama invaded Iran, Venezuela, Bolivia, Cuba and France;


Eliminated all federal funding for Social Security, Medicare, jobs training, the infrastructure, all medical research and all environmental protection;


Quadrupled the Pentagon budget:

Millions of rightwing inbreds would still say Obama is a Communist Muslim who was born in Kenya, hates free enterprise and wants the terrorists to win.

Probably got his scholarly title from Liberty University or some such establishment. You are right, no matter what Obama does, there about 30+ million people who want him to go away.

Yes. Obama should follow the advice of this talking clown head and instead of being a "light-weight, bumbling ideologue" he can be a heavyweight, bumbling idealogue like the last president.
Wonder if he was the one that whispered the bright idea of invading Iraq into GWB's ear...

Wait. So all I have to do to solve a lingering problem is to bomb another nation?

Screw you, gas company, I just carpet bombed Togo!

But if he rounded up all the Muslims and had them shot, that might make him popular with the wingnuts.

Who am I kidding, no it wouldn't.

Holte: Yup, I'd guess either Liberty University or Diplomas'R'Us.com. And there are at least 30 million knuckledraggers who will hate Obama no matter what he does.

Rockync: I think there are a lot of those "heavyweight bumbling ideologues" out there who ordered and dictated Dumbya's every move. And they're furious that Obama hasn't listened to them (not yet, anyway).

Randal: Maybe this is the way to solve everything. It certainly simplifies things.

Thomas: No, I'm afraid Obama would have to do a lot more than that to win their approval.

He's right. Violating international law is the hallmark of any great presidency.

This is not the general public perception of Obama. It is the "general public perception of Obama" that smart Republican propagandists such as Pipes wish to create, and this is just another instance in a very transparent campaign to poison the general public perception of the president.

What a bunch of turds people like Pipes are. They do an overall disservice to the country, and should be ashamed of themselves.

Tom, you're right. Obama hasn't raised anyone's taxes, he hasn't taken away anyone's guns, and last I heard, Christianity was still legal in America. So what's the big complaint against him? Seems to me like the guy has bent over backward to accommodate these assholes.

Seems to me the main problem is that Obama is a Democrat, and unless they destroy him, they can't achieve the permanent GOP majority Karl Rove and his servicers/worshippers so sorely want.

Snave: You're right, Obama has been doing too much bending over and too much accommodating. I heard part of a speech on NPR yesterday (I don't know who it was) saying that the public perceives Obama and Congress as being inept, weak. This speaker was imploring the Democrats to start doing whatever it takes, including reconciliation, to get bills passed; and this is why the Democrats are slipping in the polls. And I agree.

I assume Obama won't ever listen to any of these marginalized wackjobs like Daniel Pipes, but it's still irritating -- and amusing at the same time -- to see all the shit they keep spewing.

Did you say neoconservative scholar?? That should read Neoconservative LIAR.

Au contraire, my friend. You do recall Dick Cheney was once a neoconservative scholar, don't you?

That nit-pick aside, your conclusion in your final paragraph is exactly right.

Pipes' IQ is obviously less than his shoe size. A 10-second look at our military situation, with another five seconds to ponder our financial situation, would be enough to convince the average department store mannequin we have no business starting an unwarranted war of aggression against a country that would be, oh, maybe 25 times better able to defend itself and retaliate, big time, than Iraq. And then there are matters of international law and foreign relations.

Pipes and Cheney belong in the same asylum.

Teeluck: Those people use the term "scholar" much too loosely.

SW: Dick Cheney and Daniel Pipes in the same asylum, that would be just too perfect. A match made in Heaven.

I think it would be way easier if we could just get a list of the countries these chickenhawks don't want to bomb and go from there. It would be a way shorter list and easier to manage.

Jess: I think we should find out which few countries the rightfucks don't hate, and deport them there.

Oh if it were that easy Tom, I would start a paypal fund myself and match donations up to a certain amount, to have them gone sooner rather than later.

Jess: I'd contribute to that one too.
