Reader comment on item: Obama's Leftist Conundrum

Submitted by craig (United States), Nov 27, 2011 at 22:57

This doesn't sound like you Mr.Pipes, I didn't know that you were so politically biased and naive. Is this really you?

First, just a little help with some of this stuff you wrote, if it is indeed you...

what exactly are leftists? Are leftists dangerous communist radical anarchist self-loathing anti-colonial irredentist atheist promiscuous bleeding-heart egalitarian liberal gonna-let-the-country-go-down-the-tubes-with-welfare possibly colluding with foreign country to make this a socialist satellite of Europe, and ban french fries types!? my word! the horror! am i putting words in your mouth? are you mad as hell and not going to take it anymore? Be a little more specific, also, name his comrades, and the ways in which he has shown that he despises America.

And what are America's interests- enduring war, torture, no taxes on corporations and the wealthy, no social programs? am i putting words in your mouth again? i'm all ears...how many more black-ops, drone assassinations , or military camps in Darwin do you need to fill your lust?

clarify if you could:

are you saying that:

All leftists (whatever they are) despise the United States and see it as "a force for ill in the World"? Obama being a closet type of one of em', on some occasion and by some evidence has shown his distaste for this country?

Higher taxes and the employment rate are connected in such a zero-sum way? I actually am not sure about what you are saying as far your domestic policy preferences in this piece, or stub, or not really developed forgery...

Obama has a nest and he fouls it?

Things are working in this country if we continue to keep Guantanamo Bay running; troops and outsourced private mercenaries in Iraq; the war in the Middle East never-ending?

see if you can illuminate the above outlined confusion if you will- if you are basing this incisive analysis on some real evidence, I and all my ilk could be convinced I suppose...

is this really the same scholar who wrote about Syria so eloquently, or even about Muslims in America? what happened to you?

Submitting....
