It's kindergarten time in the Obama administration

First it was Energy Secretary Steven Chu calling Americans 'teenagers' and telling us we needed to be treated as such - a topic I discussed on air when filling in for Brian Wilson last week on WSPD.

Now it's special envoy to Sudan, retired Air Force Maj. Gen. J. Scott Gration, saying that a war-crimes dictator just needs a little milk and cookies and all will be well.

"We've got to think about giving out cookies," said Gration, who was appointed in March. "Kids, countries -- they react to gold stars, smiley faces, handshakes, agreements, talk, engagement."

Is this guy serious????

Sudanese President Omar Hassan al-Bashir was indicted in March by the International Criminal Court on charges of war crimes in Darfur. Gration, in many stops, is urging the people to 'trust the government.'

This is just another example of the Obama administration emboldening our enemies while alienating our friends - and doing so in such a kindergarten manner that Obama's goal of 'changing the world's perception of us' is likely to be achieved, though not in a way that is good for America.

For real diplomatic punch, always offer brownies. With sprinkles in a real neat design on top. Always impresses.

mRed - brownies? Are you sure? I would have thought cupcakes.

LOL!

"This is just another example of the Obama administration emboldening our enemies"

The key word is "OUR" enemies...who seem to be Obama's friends.

Maggie,

I would say that this is another prime example of the Obama Administration philosophy. All that is required to solve the world's problems (or those in the US) is the proper use of indoctrination, with the rewards handed out for the correct response.

The next comparison will undoubtedly be a comparison to training dogs, dolphins, or seals. As long as you throw them a biscuit or a fish from time to time, you can get them to do almost anything.

Maggie,

The choice of retired Air Force Maj. Gen. J. Scott Gration, and his warped opinion speaks volumes about President Zero; and none of them are good/flattering.

Just think what this says to the rest of the world about our president's judgment...

SIGH :-(
