Fred Barnes Has Fears….

Four, to be exact — about PEBO:

  1. He might create 4.1 million jobs. (Seriously!)
  2. He is afraid to oppose the far left liberals in Congress, like Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi.
  3. He is another Jimmy Carter (i.e., he favors diplomacy over war).
  4. He has “nerves of jello” (i.e., he listens, and is capable of understanding that he might be wrong).

Don’t worry, Fred. It’s not Obama; it’s you — you are a moron:

Barnes’ criteria for inner strength seem terribly odd: “President Bush had strong nerves. President Clinton, who passed up a chance to eliminate Osama bin Laden, did not.” This seems entirely backwards. Bush, when told the United States was under attack the morning of Sept. 11, 2001, sat frozen. Instead of reacting, he read a children’s book for several minutes, and then flew directionless around the country for a while. His “strong nerves” did not serve him well in responding to failed policies in Iraq, or a devastating storm in New Orleans. A person of “strong nerves” does not generally feel the need to avoid people who might confront him/her with contrary information.

And Bill Clinton did not “passed up a chance to eliminate Osama bin Laden,” he did the opposite, launching strikes against terrorist base camps, and nearly killing the al Qaeda leader.

I continue to wonder what the weather is like in Barnes’ reality.

Hot — as in fevered.
