So stupid at State…

leave a comment »

The White House’s counter-terrorism  triumph in  Yemen has imploded messily,  and now Americans are trapped there.   The idiots are State are advising them  to fly out (but the airport is CLOSED) or board a boat (nothing is being allowed to dock at the port).   Marie Harf’s whiny repetition of advice doesn’t change the facts on the ground.   One would think that reality would be setting in on this Administration,  but,  no,  His Oneness and cronies still insist on their rose-colored glasses,  even when they become smeared with rich red blood.

UPDATE:   India,  France,  Russia,  Canada,  and China are evacuating their citizens.   The Obama Administration is  hoping one  of these nations will save Americans as well,  since it is doing nothing to assist them.

UPDATE:  Now three groups  are suing  the government to force it to help the stranded Americans.

UPDATE:  Well,  at least some Americans  have gotten  out,  no thanks to their home country.

UPDATE:  Yes,  it is  embarrassing.

UPDATE:  And  it’s dangerous.

Nicklaus still sharp…

Jack Nicklaus may be 75 years old,  and he may have a paunch,  but he  scored a  hole in one at the Masters par-3 contest yesterday.   Congratulations to the Golden Bear!
