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.
