Knuckle-draggers should love this chum from Jeb Bush:
In an interview with the Union Leader, aspiring 2016 Republican presidential nominee Jeb Bush took a slap at the foreign policies of President Barack Obama, stating that the leader of the free world uses too many big words and wastes his time at conferences with world leaders instead of forging ahead.
In video captured by C-SPAN, Bush criticized the White House’s nuclear negotiations with Iran calling it, “the Clinton-Kerry-Obama foreign policy playing out.”
“You don’t have to be the world’s policemen, but you have to be the world’s leader and there’s a huge difference,” Bush explained. “This guy — this president and Secretary Clinton and Secretary Kerry – when someone disagrees with their nuanced approach where it’s all kind of so sophisticated it makes no sense. You know what I’m saying?”
Bush continued, “Big syllable words and lots of fancy conferences and meetings and – We’re not leading. That creates chaos. It creates a more dangerous world. So restoring the alliances that have kept the world safer and our country safer – getting back to a position in the Middle East where there’s no light between Israel and the United States.”
You have to be the world’s leader. Who says, Jeb? There’s a lot of people on this blue ball who wish we could go away. And what could one possibly have against a comprehensive and complex understanding of today’s challenges? It’s that bad a thing to be smart? And fuck you muchly for using the “this president” line, I think we know what you want to say when you say that. And I’ll be damned if I could tell you how a relationship with one of the most controversial countries in the world could be considered one that makes us safer. In point of fact, our relationship with Israel has pissed off 1/5 of the globe, so I don’t know what the fuck Bush is talking about here.
I expect this kind of stupidity from Scott Walker. But I guess I am going to have to lower my expectations for Bush even further. Down, down the rabbit hole we go.
