obama theater theatre comedy tragedy stage curtain mask sad hill news

As the curtains open, we discover Obama engaged in another ‘kinetic military action‘ with himself. In this particular scene, Obama has taken a direct hit resulting from a personal attack he launched over nine years ago. Witness the comedy and tragedy of this stunning solo performance as our Actor-in-Chief successfully upstages his own ego:

(CNSnews) President Barack Obama, as an Illinois state senator in 2002, said that using military force to topple a murderous dictator amounted to a “dumb war” and should be opposed.

The “dumb war” Obama was criticizing was the planned invasion of Iraq and the murderous dictator was its leader, Saddam Hussein. Obama, speaking at an anti-war rally in Chicago on Oct. 2, 2002 said that while Saddam was a brutal tyrant, that was not enough to justify using military force to remove him from power.

Here’s where the ‘dumb war’ drama began – just a sampling of Obama’s 2002 anti-Iraq war speech, as posted on the ‘Obama for America‘ website (renamed ‘Organizing for America‘):

UPDATE (04.06.2011): Whoops! Looks like Obama for America wants to shove this down the memory hole and removed the page yesterday. Time to rewrite more history. At least NewsMaxFOX, and CNSNews caught it, too:

What I am opposed to is a dumb war. What I am opposed to is a rash war. What I am opposed to is the cynical attempt by Richard Perle and Paul Wolfowitz and other armchair, weekend warriors in this administration to shove their own ideological agendas down our throats, irrespective of the costs in lives lost and in hardships borne.’

~snip~

We may have occasion in our lifetime to once again rise up in defense of our freedom, and pay the wages of war. But we ought not — we will not — travel down that hellish path blindly. Nor should we allow those who would march off and pay the ultimate sacrifice, who would prove the full measure of devotion with their blood, to make such an awful sacrifice in vain.’

For posterity, here’s a video of Obama’s speech with help from his supporters:

    Lies within lies within more lies. The only thing this man has ever said that was true is “We are ..Days Away From Fundamentally Transforming The United States of America!” He is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma. Who is this man really?

    He must be a blonde at heart because if anyone blows in his ear, he will change his mind.

    (With apologies to all blondes)

  3. Amicus Burr says:

    I don’t see the comparison between Saddam and Gaddafi. Saddam wears a mustache, Gaddafi doesn’t. Saddam was lousy at golf while Gaddafi hits 250 yards off the tee. Also, Saddam knew how to iron his own uniform. So really, there’s no similarities between the two leaders at all.

    P.S. I’m pretty sure this article is racist.

  5. Obama’s Libyan Strategery

    He joins in war, almost too late,
    Makes public his withdrawal date,
    Commences action from the air,
    Then makes his enemies aware
    He’ll not attack on land,
    Across the desert sand.

    Within just days, perhaps a week,
    His reputation and mystique
    For managing the world’s affairs
    Achieves its peak when he declares
    He’ll bomb the rebels too,
    For things that they might do.

    Perhaps another Nobel Prize
    Our friends from Stockholm could reprise,
    For excellence in strategy
    While waging war on Tripoli.
    It’s merited, at worst,
    As much as was the first.
