The Middle East hangs in the balance. Why isn’t the President ‘meddling?’

Um, because of what happened the last fifty times you guys told us the Middle East was hanging in the balance? At some point we might realize that MEDDLING DOESN’T FUCKING WORK.

ProfessorJukes June 19, 2009 at 4:02 pm

Yes, change course!!! Listen to Wolfie. He was right about everything else. Wasn’t he?

Crab1 June 19, 2009 at 4:03 pm

Its about time for Obama to land his jet on an aircraft carrier and declare victory in Iran.

FLIGHTSUITS!

SayItWithWookies June 19, 2009 at 4:08 pm

From Wolfowitz’s piece:
Obama could send a powerful message simply by placing his enormous personal prestige behind the peaceful conduct of the demonstrators and their demand for reform — exactly the kind of peaceful, democratic change that he praised in his speech in Cairo.

President Obama actually did voice his support for the demnstrators and reform. I know that bombs and reckless invasions are the only language neocons understand, so maybe when Obama did it in mere words that wasn’t enough. Or maybe you just don’t have access to current news from prison.

What’s up with this affirmative action hire, Charles Krauthammer? Sure, that the WaPo would hire someone with a disability is nice and progressive, but isn’t it reverse discrimination against those who are not mentally retarded?

chascates June 19, 2009 at 4:10 pm

Reagan sent Iran a chocolate cake and a Bible. This time we should sent a Koran and bakalawa.

tunamelt June 19, 2009 at 4:10 pm

[re=343319]SayItWithWookies[/re]: Now if he had done it while wearing a flight suit.

McDuff June 19, 2009 at 4:10 pm

I tell you what, Kraut-hammer, let’s air drop a shit load of pre-paid satellite phones and digital cameras on Tehran for those kids to pick up and use instead of bombs. Would that be meddling enough for you or does “meddling” in the neo-Con dicktionary have to involve bloodshed by definition?

cal June 19, 2009 at 4:13 pm

What a pair of Liz Bectons.

charlesdegoal June 19, 2009 at 4:14 pm

I thought Krauthammer et al wanted to bomb Iran into the stone age. What is this sudden concern about the well-being of the Iranian people?
Also, they make it sound as though Mousavi was some sort of anti-clerical, American-loving revolutionary. Wasn’t he Iran’s prime minister a few years ago? Isn’t the suddenly likable Rafsanjani a senior cleric seeking the position of Supreme Leader, or whatever? Give us a break, you mental cripple (I know – not nice).

slappypaddy June 19, 2009 at 4:15 pm

this point’s probably been made somewhere by someone already, but if i was in a fiction writing workshop and named these clowns krauthammer and wolfowitz, i would be roundly urged to come up with something a little less sophomoric. reality writes shit that i just can’t touch.

Hooray For Anything June 19, 2009 at 4:15 pm

Nice daily paper you have there Washingtonians

TGY June 19, 2009 at 4:16 pm

The message isn’t clear until it kills somebody.

qwerty42 June 19, 2009 at 4:16 pm

The only people you want to listen to are the ones who were wrong every GD time, who still can’t grasp how that could be and who are sure this time’s the charm. But it’s a new reality. a whole new reality.

Joshua Norton June 19, 2009 at 4:24 pm

Its about time for Obama to land his jet on an aircraft carrier

Or K-Lo’s ass would do in a pinch. There’d still a lot of room left over for the press corps and a marching band.

Extemporanus June 19, 2009 at 4:24 pm

[re=343319]SayItWithWookies[/re]: Wolfie’s op-ed makes much more sense if one understands neo-con code:

“personal prestige” = cock
“peaceful conduct” = young boys
“reform” = mouth rape

Zadig June 19, 2009 at 4:24 pm

[re=343308]Crab1[/re]: Oh, so THAT’S what all those pundits yelling “WHERE IS OBAMA!!” are waiting for.

Monsieur Grumpe June 19, 2009 at 4:33 pm

God, what a snot encrusted rag. A rag where the columnists are like the snot from some TB infected hobo’s nose. When I try to read it I keep thinking why are they employed?

Lionel Hutz Esq. June 19, 2009 at 4:35 pm

I refuse to read the Post‘s editorial page, but I assume that anything Charles “The Evil Gnome of Conservatisim” Krauthammer or Paul “You Have to Kill A Few Brown People for Democracy” Wolforwitz writes has a disclaimer that they are bat-shit insane, right?

Internally valid June 19, 2009 at 4:36 pm

If somebody could just send word to the protesters that Charles Krauthammer and Paul Wolfowitz support them, I’m sure that they will be heartened.

SayItWithWookies June 19, 2009 at 4:38 pm

[re=343324]tunamelt[/re]: I’ll settle for an orange jumpsuit. And a ball gag.

[re=343346]Extemporanus[/re]: Paul Wolfowitz’s requirements for dating material are that they must a) be blind; and b) possess the moral sensitivity of Ivan the Terrible and the self-righteous megalomania of Ted Haggard. A meth connection would be a plus, but is not required.

sati demise June 19, 2009 at 4:43 pm

[re=343319]SayItWithWookies[/re]: Obama came out today and flat out, just cold told them “the world is watching”.

I think they know what he means.

Wolfowitz… GFY

Extemporanus June 19, 2009 at 4:43 pm

[re=343364]SayItWithWookies[/re]: You’ve just described 80% of the WaPo’s editorial board.

Prommie June 19, 2009 at 4:45 pm

[re=343364]SayItWithWookies[/re]: No ball gag, a mouthful of cocks.

Hooray For Anything June 19, 2009 at 4:47 pm

I’m guessing we shall soon see a David Broder column chastising Obama for not being bipartisan enough when it comes to Iran

AxmxZ June 19, 2009 at 4:57 pm

[re=343332]slappypaddy[/re]: Remember that time Hillary’s nag Eight Belles came in second in the race and became Big Brown’s Secretary of Stables?

paintitblack June 19, 2009 at 5:00 pm

Perhaps Krautie & Wolfie could just excrete themselves onto the downtown streets of Tehran & march shoulder-to-shoulder w/Iranistan teabaggers to demonstrate their neocon solidarity? Oh whoops, guess Krautie would have to wheel himself shoulder to hip to show his solidarity (yes, very not nice; it’s friday; bite me). Or would that be too much like makin’ it real?

doxastic June 19, 2009 at 5:51 pm

Hear that? It’s the sound of Katherine Graham punching her way out of her coffin.

hobospacejunkie June 19, 2009 at 5:58 pm

Wolverine to Krauthammer (after hearing the names of the other neocontards writing for WaPo): What do they call you, “Wheels?”

Good ol’ Krautie, wheeling himself into oblivion, one column at a time.

doxastic June 19, 2009 at 6:03 pm

I also love that they want the US to get into a fight with Iran when North Korea announced today that it would lob a taepodong at Hawaii for shits and giggles. Why are neocons always digging in the wrong place?

hobospacejunkie June 19, 2009 at 6:47 pm

Good ol’ Krauthammer. Just dives right in without having a look around. You’d think he’d learn after a while.

CivicHoliday June 19, 2009 at 7:04 pm

nothing bad could possibly come of the US giving direct support to Mousavi. lets send him flowers and a nice card to get things started.

Min June 19, 2009 at 7:14 pm

Where is Obama?

Shyeah…like we’d tell you.

June Cleaver 2.0 June 19, 2009 at 10:07 pm

If Krauthammer could only breathe, he’d be a better human being.

June Cleaver 2.0 June 19, 2009 at 10:18 pm

“It’s about time for Obama to land his jet on an aircraft carrier.”

That is a metaphor for something, but what?

sati demise June 19, 2009 at 11:03 pm

[re=343490]doxastic[/re]: word

DangerousLiberal June 20, 2009 at 12:01 am

[re=343322]Brendan M.[/re]: Win.

And why isn’t Wolfie enjoying the hospitality of the War Crimes Court, in the Hague, also?

DangerousLiberal June 20, 2009 at 12:02 am

[re=343628]June Cleaver 2.0[/re]: It’s a metaphor for, as the kids like to say these days, EPIC FAIL. So, no, BHO won’t do that.

LtColBatboy June 20, 2009 at 1:39 am

Perhaps Prez Obama can borrow Bush’s leather AWOL-jacket and his Mission Accomplished banner??? Do telepromters pitch n’ roll too much at sea?

Lionel Hutz Esq. June 20, 2009 at 6:26 am

[re=343626]June Cleaver 2.0[/re]: If Dracula could only breathe, he wouldn’t turn to dust when exposed to sunshine. Or hang out with Cheney all the time.

June Cleaver 2.0 June 20, 2009 at 10:03 am

[re=343663]DangerousLiberal[/re]: I had a dirty/sexy metaphor in mind. You people are too political.

Bruno June 20, 2009 at 6:36 pm

I think the article on evidence on gays in the military is one of those closeted homo-erotic pieces with plenty of scenes of gun polishing, showers, and full-dress uniforms.
