Here's one for the STFU ASAP file:
John Kerry to Give Speech Wednesday on Middle East Peace Process
Speech will to lay out administration’s vision for resolving conflict between Israel and the Palestinians
After eight years of achieving nothing other than the dissipation of US credibility in the Middle East this clown wants to lay out the "vision" of Barack Obama to be pursued by Donald Trump? I have a better idea - why not replay some of the visions of Barackulous Past? This could be a Greatest Hits collection - my favorite vision from NostraObamus is still this Oct 2015 classic presser in which he explained that Putin was entering a quagmire in Syria and would soon enough discover the impotence of Russian power. Strike "Russian impotence", substitute "American impotence", et voila - Obama was exactly right about what Putin would discover.
And of course, that presser also had the bonus "half-baked" response about calls for a no-fly zone. Well, Republican advocates of a no-fly zone were engaging in "half-baked" "mumbo jumbo", prompting this priceless follow-up:
Q: ...And lastly, just to clarify, to what degree did Hillary Clinton’s endorsement just yesterday of a no-fly zone put her in a category of embracing a half-baked answer on Syria that borders on mumbo jumbo?
THE PRESIDENT: On the latter issue, on the last question that you asked, Hillary Clinton is not half-baked in terms of her approach to these problems. She was obviously my Secretary of State. But I also think that there’s a difference between running for President and being President, and the decisions that are being made and the discussions that I’m having with the Joint Chiefs become much more specific and require, I think, a different kind of judgment. And that’s what I’ll continue to apply as long as I’m here. And if and when she’s President, then she’ll make those judgments. And she’s been there enough that she knows that these are tough calls but that --
Q -- that she should know better?
THE PRESIDENT: No, that’s not what I said. That’s perhaps what you said.
Awkward! But whatev. Kerry and Obama can not shut up and sit down fast enough.
THUNDER ON THE RIGHT: If you had "Erick Erickson will support Obama and Kerry on this" in the office pool - YOU LOSE!
OK, I am thinking of those Super Bowl pools where you buy a square and get randomly assigned a result. Obviously no regular reader here (by "here" I mean, lefty, righty or heavily medicated within this Solar System) guessed wrong on Erickson's view.
