Yesterday Glenn Reynolds said this:
When taking office, the President does not swear to create jobs. He does not swear to “grow the economy.” He does not swear to institute “fairness.” The only oath the President takes is this one:
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.
By sending — literally — brownshirted enforcers to engage in — literally — a midnight knock at the door of a man for the non-crime of embarrassing the President of the United States and his administration, President Obama violated that oath. You can try to pretty this up (It’s just about possible probation violations! Sure.), or make excuses or draw distinctions, but that’s what’s happened. It is a betrayal of his duties as President, and a disgrace.
a few hours earlier the Worcester Gay Pride March complete with drag queens and strippers in tighty whities. These images would be considered bad under Islam. Should President Obama be arresting these guys?
The reaction of concern trolls was not surprising but this tweet from Joe Scarborough who I watch regularly caught me by surprise:
If you read the series of tweets at that article on Twitchy you will see the conversation began with the whole “Romney Gaffe” theme I’ve already stated even stipulating the nonsense idea that the Romney statement was the ‘gaffe heard round the world” in retrospect with this image all over the net:
But if Joe disagrees I have a suggestion. Invite Glenn Reynolds on the show Monday to discuss the issue.
It’s a great move, Glenn is a former MSNBC contributor, he has one of the most powerful one man web sites in the world with numbers so strong he can crash smaller servers by linking to them. He has a libertarian bent in favor of both abortion and gay marriage so he would fit in socially with the crew and most important it would bring eyes that would normally not be there.
Most important of all if you have Heilman, Mika, Capeheart, and Yourself taking Glenn on, the fight might almost be even and if you feel it’s not you can always throw in Andra Mitchel to help you out.
You spend a lot of time dismissing bloggers, lets see if you can hold your own against one. If Monday is bad go for Tuesday or Wednesday and promote the hell out of it.
I like you Joe, but I think you guys wouldn’t have a prayer against Glenn Reynolds and if you think otherwise your going to have to prove it to me.
Consider it the first debate of the 2016 presidential season.
Update: If Joe doesn’t want to face Glenn there is Always Mark Steyn
Look at Jonah’s post immediately below; look at the picture. What a pity Ambassador Stevens didn’t enjoy the same level of “protection” as Mr Nakoula. Why, if only the United States could bring the same amount of firepower to bear in its Benghazi compound as it brings to a probation-violation arrest in Cerritos. But it’s all about priorities, isn’t it?
Any curiosity about that? Apparently not, judging from Scarborough’s nothing-to-see-here tweets.
or Jonah Goldberg
Good thing this is no longer John Ashcroft’s America!
Hell I could even do it if you are worried about those guys, fly me down & I’ll bring Cannoli (that will drive Mika nuts)
