This week’s winner has committed the consummate douchebag move, sticking his nose in where it doesn’t belong. Barack Obama, Senator from Illinois, decided that he was going to interfere with US foreign policy, with war policy, for his own political advantage.
The Washington Times reports that Obama tried to stop the Iraqi government from striking a deal with the Bush Administration so the next President, possibly him, could swoop in and play the hero. This is absolutely disgusting and borderline treason. Is this supporting the troops?
“In the conversation, the senator urged Iraq to delay the [memorandum of understanding] between Iraq and the United States until the new administration was in place,” said Samir Sumaidaie, Iraq’s ambassador to the United States.
This is reckless and dangerous. Obama is not the President, may never be the President, he has no right to play the President, especially for his own political gain.
This was done when it looked like the war was going to be THE issue of the campaign. With the surge working, Obama needed something. If things continued to improve, that would take away his best trump card and he wouldn’t be able to placate the uber-leftists who gave him the nomination by surrendering. Michael “Jabba” Moore, George Soros and those of their ilk wouldn’t stand for success, which would put Obama in a position similar to where he is now, not being able to admit the progress that is being made. So he tried to undermine the efforts of the United States government for his own political gain. Absolutely disgusting.
For this Obama deserves something much greater than Douchebag of the Week, and hopefully he will get that on November 4th. Until then, that’s what he gets.
