Obama’s Army ( Sometimes called The Media ) Fail to Report: INVESTOR’S BUSINESS DAILY: Obama’s Creepy Cult of Personality. “Last week, the Obama campaign started selling a refashioned American flag with its logo replacing the stars, and then urged Americans to pledge allegiance to Barack. Did we just wake up in Mao’s China?” INVESTOR’S BUSINESS DAILY: You Broke The Mideast, Mr. President. Now You Own It. WELL, IT’S NOT LIKE IT’S DISSING MUHAMMAD: White House Silent Over Demands to Denounce ‘Piss Christ’ Artwork. And it’s not like the people who don’t like it have killed anyone. May our leaders have joy of the incentive system they’re creating. FOUAD AJAMI: Muslim Rage And Obama’s Retreat. This is not a Jimmy Carter moment—a U.S. Embassy and its staff seized and held hostage for 444 days, America’s enemies taking stock of its weakness, its allies running for cover. But the anti-American protests that broke upon 20 nations this past week must be reckoned a grand personal failure for Barack Obama, and a case of hubris undone. James Taranto on Obama’s Apology Ad: What message does the ad actually send the Mohammed Tariq Khans? On the one hand, a message of weakness: Assemble a big enough mob, kill enough people, burn enough flags and churches, and you too can grab the attention of the most powerful man and woman in the world. On the other hand, a taunt. If Obama and Mrs. Clinton really mean it, the Khans must think, why haven’t they presented the video makers for public mincing? The State Department’s ad contains no answer to that crucial question. If our government is going to run an ad to educate Pakistanis (or whoever) about American attitudes, wouldn’t it make sense to include an explanation as to why America’s leaders cannot and will not enforce the mob’s standards of blasphemy? To an American, what’s objectionable about this ad isn’t so much the apology for the video’s offense as the abject failure to defend basic American principles of freedom. That same failure makes the ad less than worthless as an educational tool.
