Speaking of President Reagan, we need an acronym to go along with WWRD. This would be an acronym for situations where liberals/progressives do something horrifying to little media comment when a similar horrifying act by Ronald Reagan would have been trumpeted from the rooftops. For example, can you imagine the reaction if a major Reagan fundraiser had traveled to the capital city of a major Middle East ally in order to raise money to help Islamists overthrow the government? What If Reagan Did This (WIReDT)? (h/t The Other McCain and American Power)
Unbelievable. Code Pink's Jodie Evans and Medea Benjamin also tried to rush the stage during Sarah Palin's acceptance speech during the 2008 GOP Convention. Again, WIReDT???
These screechy broads are not just "protesters" (the generic term that the MSM uses to describe these two). They are wealthy middle aged Bay Area women with the money and leisure time to go around the country and the world undermining the Constitution at home and American interests abroad. They may look funny and present themselves as "idealists," but their goal is no laughing matter: the socialization of America and the retreat of liberal democracy from the world stage. They fit right in with Rev. Wright, the Weathermen, and ACORN. And that means they fit right in with the worldview of the one guy who links all of these groups.
Everyone is standing around wondering "what is Obama trying to do in Egypt?" While he has been trying to have it every way in order to keep up with events, the overall effect of his passive-aggressive calls for Mubarak to resign "yesterday" can only benefit the Islamists who have been waiting decades for this moment. That a group like Code Pink, which reflects the goals and aspirations of the radical groups with whom Obama was associated less than a decade before he was elected president, is on the streets of Cairo can only mean that Obama is with them in spirit.
