Donald Rumsfeld, ******* of the Day for March 25, 2014
by TeaPartyCat ()
The Iraq War was a disaster sold on lies. Donald Rumsfeld was front and center on that one. And his arrogance never stopped, no matter how many things he was wrong on:
- Wrong on weapons of mass destruction
- Wrong on number of troops needed to occupy the country
- Wrong on what it would take to end the war
And yet here he is talking about Afghanistan:
“Take for example that we have status of forces agreements probably with 100, 125 countries in the world,” the former secretary of defense ranted angrily. “This administration, the White House and the State Department, have failed to get a status of forces agreement.”Now I’m not sure that Rumsfeld was in the moment thinking about the history of racist comparisons of black men to apes. Maybe he is, maybe he isn’t. I’ll leave it as an open question for my readers— was Rumsfeld being racist with this comparison? Leave me a comment on that.
“A trained ape could get a status of forces agreement,” he added. “It does not take a genius.”
(NOTE: Turns out he uses that exact phrase a lot, and not just for Obama.)
But even if it’s not a racist statement, it’s just so ridiculously arrogant for a man who was at the center of the biggest foreign policy and military ****up of the last 40 years— the Iraq War— to be complaining about the way someone else does it. The only time I care what Rumsfeld thinks would be if he had the awareness to complain about when someone else was doing what he did and acknowledging what a disaster it was last time.
So for complaining that Obama is not handling foreign policy like the Bush administration did, which was a ****ing disaster, Donald Rumsfeld is the ******* of the Day.
It is Donald Rumsfeld's second time as ******* of the Day. His previous win was for saying Obama didn’t act like a commander-in-chief.
