John Kerry, lame duck Secretary of State, has moved up the date of his intended speech on a Palestinian State to 11:00 AM this morning; a move no doubt intended to thwart efforts by the incoming Trump administration to act on Israel’s behalf while at the same time pushing back against Netanyahu.
For the last eight years, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, Samantha Power, Ben Rhodes, and Susan Rice have sought to rewrite the traditional approach to foreign policy.
When the Obama administration discovered that tragic human nature still governed foreign policy, it objected petulantly, insisting that an American messiah had come to save the world. The world, for some strange reason, was not impressed. Instead, it took advantage of the light-bringer’s childish narcissism.
We’re asking our readers to come up with a pithy caption to this photoshopped image of Barack as the hapless Deputy Barney Fife, snooty Francophile “Lurch” Le Kerry and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
There will be three winners: first, second and third place. Let’s make the effort to come up with an imaginative caption worth your while. Second and third place will receive a $10 Amazon gift card. First Place will receive a $25 gift card from Amazon and a spot on our sidebar as the Blog of the Week.
Contest ends at midnight Saturday, December 31st. The winners will be announced on Sunday, New Years Day. Good luck!
Don't miss Secretary Kerry's speech. The administration that caused more Middle East war than anyone will explain how to achieve peace.— Josh Earnst (@NotJoshEarnest) December 28, 2016
