Obama’s vanity leaks
Rich Lowery writes of Obama’s vanity leaks. You know; the national security ones that are capable of causing exceptionally grave damage to America?
Among all the words in the press airing the Obama administration’s secret national-security programs, one sentence stands out. Appearing in the New York Times, it explains why President Barack Obama personally approves drone strikes: “A student of writings on war by Augustine and Thomas Aquinas, he believes that he should take moral responsibility for such actions.”
…The detail reeks of the sycophancy of a White House insider who wants his boss to get credit for all of his prodigious talents and enviable qualities.
So according to the leakers, not only is Obama a great warrior/commander-in-chief, he’s clearly someone who understands national security and the call to morality of ancient Christian thinkers.
While there’s no way to prove or disprove this hypothesis, one thing would help: if Obama were to release his sealed test scores, transcripts, and papers.
And that’s precisely why Obama’s sealed records won’t be released. Chances are Obama has never taken a course on the men or done any writing or personal study on either.
In fact, anonymous sources have suggested that the President believes Augustine is a five-star hotel in Prague and that Thomas Aquinas is a bottled-water company, a couple of items that could make him look foolish in the extreme if off teleprompter.
Which seems more likely: that Obama studies great Christian philosophers in his spare time or that he watches Sports Center?
