The World According to Mona Charen

Rightwing columnist Mona Charen can name everything that’s wrong with America and the world.  Needless to say, each and every one of these problems was single-handedly created by President Barack Obama.

“An estimated 93,000 people have died in Syria's metastasizing civil war. Hundreds of thousands of that conflict's refugees strain resources and stability in neighboring countries. Iran continues its steady march toward nuclear weapons development. North Korea menaces its neighbors and episodically threatens to launch nuclear missiles at Los Angeles. Turkey, long lauded by Obama as a model for the region, is violently cracking down on peaceful demonstrators. Slow growth and high unemployment hobble the world's most advanced economies as growing bureaucracy and crippling debt take their toll. Islamist movements are making gains in Mali, Indonesia, Pakistan and Iraq after gaining power in Egypt and Tunisia…”

It’s all pretty grim, isn’t it.

Damn You Barack Obama!

If I remember right, after the Oklahoma City bombing of 1995, Mona Charen was one of the loudest screamers of the “Let’s round up all them swarthy Ay-rabs ‘cause we know it was THEM!” chorus.  Then, not a peep out of her when the perp turned out to be a white American citizen with a decidedly non-Arabic name.

Mona Charen finishes her column with:

“World leadership is not for beginners. It requires something beyond tabloid celebrity and dorm room musings.”

She has a point.

Her "point" is well taken. We got attacked with Bush. Killed the attacker, that Bush couldn't be bother with, with Obama.

I haven't heard from Mona Charen in over 30 years, I remember when she WAS the star of the new right. Now the Revolution has passed her by and people are more interested in drooling over Ann Coulter and Michelle Mailken then looking at her, I figure she's making a comeback by saying ever more stupid things then she said in the 80's

Welcome back Mona

I've been amazed how the Right has criticized Obama for not propping up the Egyptian dictator. Were we supposed to send troops in and help squash the people's rebellion?

Jerry: Exactly. 9/11 happened on Dumbya's watch. Bin Laden got killed on Obama's watch.

Erik: I think you're right. She got old and now the wingtards are all drooling over Man Coulter and Michelle Malkin, and of course Sarah Palin.

Jim: The Right just wants to make everything Obama's fault. If a third world country is coming apart at the seams, it's Obama's fault for not helping the dictator. If a country cracks down on protesters, it's Obama's fault for propping up the dictator.
