Reporters To Obama: War War War War War War Now War?

News

Reporters at today's White House press conference opened their dialogue with the president on a familiar topic: War: When are we having it, and can we have it now. WAR. Also, why don't you ever visit Israel you horrible anti-Semite? And what about war? Meanwhile, Fox News' Ed Henry, who one time wrote the worst article in American history, wanted to know about war war war war war... perhaps you understand how the opening of this press conference went, yes? Well Obama simply "pivoted" to calling Mitt Romney a loser in response, so everything worked out.


The war talk already has been quite prominent this week, even more so than usual -- usual being "100% chest-thumping war talk all the time." Bibi Netanyahu essentially fired hundreds rockets out of his ass at Iran during his speech to AIPAC last night; Mitt Romney "wrote" some scary right-wing focus-grouped Iran hawk talk in the Washington Post today; John McCain already wants to bomb Syria, and will of course take an Iran war (and Russian war and Spanish war and really anything involving explosions) on the side.

And so Obama delivered these words to Romney and his fellow members of the 101st Chairborne (via TPM):

Now, what is said on the campaign trail, you know, those folks don't have a lot of responsibilities. They are not commander-in-chief. And when I see the casualness with which some of these folks talk about war, I'm reminded of the costs involved in war. I'm reminded that the decision that I have to make, in terms of sending our young men and women into battle, and the impact that has on their lives, the impact it has on our national security, the impact it has on our economy. This is not a game, and there is nothing casual about it. And, you know, when I see some of these folks who have a lot of bluster and a lot of big talk, but when you actually ask them specifically what they would do, it turns out they repeat the things that we've been doing over the last three years. It indicates to me that that is more about politics than actually trying to solve a difficult problem. Now, the one thing that we have not done is we haven't launched a war. If some of these folks think that it's time to launch a war they should say so, and they should explain to the American people exactly why they would do that and what the consequences would be.

He added, "Typically it's not people who are popping off who pay the price [of constant war everywhere]." Excuse me, Mr. Obama President, but no one feels the pain of a typical soldier's death more than Mitt Romney.

Ed Henry then asked how Obama could "have Israel's back" when he hasn't visited the country in three years, and Obama told him to shut up, the end. (Not really, there were other questions about Rush Limbaugh and vaginas and Mexicans, and he said "Lapalooza" at one point.) Enough.

Is everything terrible right now? Yes. Is it a little better than it used to be, though, ever since we BLUE WAVED Donald Trump right in his mini-mushroom dick, with votes? Yes. Will it be WAY better when the Democratic House is actually seated and Robert Mueller indicts the shitfire outta all the Trump assholes? Hell yes it will. WILL TOMORROW EVER COME, AT THIS RATE? Not bloody likely.

So here, while we await joy, is something better to do with your life than read about gross Trump. Watch delightful Michelle Obama videos, from the "Ellen" TV program of jokes and dancing! As you know, Michelle O is out there promoting her book Becoming. You should pick yourself up a copy, if you haven't yet!

Florida's hand-counting of ballots is underway, and for all the Republican whining about Democrats trying to "steal" the elections for US Senate and governor (and floating insane conspiracy theories while they're at it), the recounts appear on track to confirm the results initially reported on election night: Florida's new governor will probably be Republican Rick DeSantis, and current governor and Voldemort impersonator Rick Scott will probably replace Democrat Bill Nelson in the US Senate. That doesn't necessarily mean anything is really settled, of course, because it's fucking Florida.
