His involvement in Libya makes him responsible if Gaddafi stays in power and slaughters his own people and/or renews his connections with international terrorism. Obama will be equally responsible should Gaddafi be toppled and an Iraqi-style civil war erupts between his deposed supporters and the new government. As General Powell said “you break it, you own it.”That is fantastic! There is absolutely nothing Obama can do that will not bring mayhem to mankind. I suppose that Dick might argue that perhaps Obama shouldn't have intervened in Libya in the first place. The only problem is that Dick scolded the President for not intervening quickly enough. Morris is just covering all of his bases.
March 18, three days before Dick pulled a New Gingrich.
Where is Barack Obama? Is he still in office? As he jets off with his family for a taxpayer-paid vacation in Rio, does he realize the world is falling apart around him?Then there was this brilliant piece form Morris about how the GOP needs to cut foreign aid. Morris, of course, doesn't want to cut all aid (Israel, you are safe). Only the insignificant parts. Foreign aid is about one percent of the federal budget and Morris only wants to cut about 30 percent of foreign aid. He would cut more but he wouldn't want to offend his Fox News viewers by slicing into Israel's share.
Does he understand that he could have stopped the bloodshed in Libya by declaring a no fly zone three weeks ago and that if he does it now, he can still stop a brutal dictator from murdering thousands more?
Let's do this instead. Let's not cut foreign aid at all and instead worry about the portions of the federal budget that are more than the loose change that has fallen into the cracks of Uncle Sam's couch.
I write about Dick Morris because he is being pushed as some kind of "analyst" on Fox News and within the conservative movement. Yet, he is almost always dead wrong. It's high time that he is exposed for the worthless sham that he is. I know that intelligent people who read this post are already aware of Dick's power play to the Tea Party. But just maybe it might awaken the senses in some previously brainwashed Fox News viewer that Morris' main objective in life is to sell as many books as possible.
