Marie Harf / Obama Administration / Leadership? / Not Hardly



Don't read this!

Sorry, but I just want to get this off my chest.  After all, who am I to have an opinion – about world affairs?

No Ivy League education here.  No, I have not held a high leadership position.  I’ve seen things.  Yes, I’ve seen a lot of things.  I have worked closely with several true leaders, even war heroes.  And, I know a leader when I see one.  Which brings me to the topic of those who should never have been relegated any sort of leadership role.

Marie Harf (pronounced like ‘barf’), age 33, the Deputy Spokesperson for the U.S Department of State, appeared on national television to tell us that ISIS will never be defeated unless we help them get jobs, give them an ‘opportunity.’  I can’t believe what I’m hearing.  She, who only a short while ago was a school girl, having a national forum to expound on her crazy opinions – and on behalf of the ‘Administration.’

Marie Harf should be sent home and told to not return until she is a grown-up.  But, of course, that will not happen.  She, in her own defense, commented that perhaps her statement was too “nuanced.”  For those who are not University graduates, the word ‘nuanced’ means ‘the use or awareness of subtle shades of meaning.’

That said, she has a very important job.  She represents the President.  She reflects his views.  Yes, that President.  Folks, we have a ‘Community Organizer’ in the White House.  Can you imagine that?  A Chicago ‘Community Organizer’ is now the leader of the ‘free world.’  It’s our fault.

In less than two years, we will elect another President; and who is the frontrunner?  Hillary Rodham Clinton.  And what experience does she have?  Well, let’s see.  She was married to a Governor who later became President; and, undoubtedly, she had considerable experience, over many years, ignoring and covering-up her husband’s sexual peccadilloes; which undoubtedly will continue when Bill is the ‘First Gentleman’ – if he is ‘up’ for it.  She became a Senator from the great state of New York, joining a rather elite club of deep thinkers, when strings were pulled to get her an almost sure-fire win.  Once in the Senate, she managed to demonstrate that not just frumpy old men can wear pants.  And, she was later chosen as the US Secretary of State, even though unqualified; but chosen, nonetheless, by an equally unqualified President.  She traveled the world in luxury, meeting important people, having elegant lunches, shaking a lot of sweaty hands, and accomplished nothing.  

Yes, god-help-us, Hillary will make a suitable replacement for the current President.


Alice: But I don't want to go among mad people.

The Cat: Oh, you can't help that. We're all mad here.
