I wrote an article in NRO three and a half years ago, at a low moment in Obama’s first term, when his ratings tanked and his party had just lost Edward Kennedy’s senate seat to a Republican, that suggested that Obama could “salvage his tottering administration” by taking “dramatic gesture to change the public perception of him as a lightweight, bumbling ideologue, preferably in an arena where the stakes are high, where he can take charge, and where he can trump expectations.” He could do well and do good, I offered, by taking out the Iranian nuclear infrastructure.
Well, as the world knows, he did not follow my advice.And he was convincingly reelected.
But the time has come to crank it out again at a moment when Obama seems close to imploding...I assume the real purpose of his post is to tell the world, "I still exist and my answer to everything is still 'Kill Arabs.'"
UPDATE. Commenters tell me the punchline should be "Kill Muslims." Quite right, will remember that for the second show.
