Obama on ISIS: "We don't have a strategy yet." Press secretary lies to cover
I don't want to put the cart before the horse. We don't have a strategy yet.Interesting, but not a bit surprising.
More interesting was the "tweet" sent by his press secretary said barely an hour later:
In his remarks today [Obama] was explicit--as he has been in the past--about the comprehensive strategy we'll use to confront ISIL threat.Wait...didn't Obama just say an hour earlier that "We don't have a strategy yet"? And yet his press sec brazenly says Obama "was explicit...about the comprehensive strategy we'll use to confront" ISIL.
I don't think stuff like this is just incompetence. Rather, I think Obama's advisors had this statement crafted and ready to go, regardless of its total falsity.
Reality? Who cares?
Transparency? That's just a catchy sound-bite for the networks to use to win votes from the rubes. You didn't seriously believe we meant that, did you?
The Constitution? Irrelevant words penned by white men, so not binding on the Emperor.
Border security? We'll let in whoever we want, and you can't stop us.
Your kids' future? We couldn't care less.
