Tonight, our nation will once again be gifted with a speech made by the greatest orator since the dawn of time. Barack Hussein Obama has deigned to give Americans a hint of insight into why he went to war with Libya and, since he declared that the operation would take only "days, not weeks" over a week ago...how he won the war.
Publishers of history books have surely stopped the presses, waiting for Mr. Obama's inspirational words. Because in times of great crisis, this man...this great thinker...has shown over and over again that he can magically and poetically capture the very essence of any issue, armed with nothing but a team of speech writers and a bank of teleprompters.
Who among us can forget his famous "Speech on race," in which Mr. Obama balmed our nation's racial wounds by declaring that his own grandmother, a "typical white person," was uncomfortable around black men...making her a racist. And in that same speech, Mr. Obama declared that he could no more disown the racist Reverend Jeremiah Wright than he would his racist grandmother, which brought healing tears to the eyes of every racist in the country, secure in the knowledge that Obama loved them unconditionally, whether they changed their ways or not.
Similarly, words did not fail Barack Hussein Obama when he first toured the world as alleged president and repeatedly declared that America, until his takeover, had "shown arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive" to her allies. And we're pretty sure he's subsequently changed that dismissive, derisive arrogant attitude toward our allies, but we can't check it out with the UK or Israel because they're not talking to us anymore.
One thing for sure, though, the parts of his speech crediting Islam for all good things in modern civilization certainly struck a responsive chord...and it's safe to say that the Muslim world (not to mention the Muslim Brotherhood) has never glowed with greater ambition and self-esteem!
And so we look forward to Mr. Obama's uplifting victory speech tonight, in which he'll explain exactly how he was able to wrap up America's "kinetic military involvement" in Libya so quickly and efficiently.
It will surely be a "teachable moment" for all of us.
