Warped Priorities and Failure

The Attorney General of the United States, Eric Holder was sent on a mission overseas by Barack Obama. What could be of such importance to our country that we'd send the head of the Department of Justice out of the country? Maybe he was sent to personally see to it that the Wikileaker is finally made to stop hurting America and bring him to justice? Not quite. The Obama administration deemed that the best use of our tax dollars and our country's top law guy was to go to Switzerland to pitch for the World Cup soccer championships to be brought here in 2018 and 2022. Really.

The mission has turned out to be another feather of failure in Barry's dunce cap. The winning hosts for the World Cup in 2018 and 2022 will be Russia and Qatar. Why did Obama even bother? It's not like Americans are huge soccer fans - oh wait, I know of a segment of our population who really dig soccer: illegal alien invaders! This entire waste of time, money, resources and Obama's ever dwindling clout on the world stage was simply another attempt to pander to what the Dems hope will be a huge voting block once they are able to shove amnesty for those criminals down our throats.

Jim Geraghty has a great little piece about this latest failure at the National Review, my favorite part is the closing paragraph:
A U.S. failure to win competitions to host the Olympics or the World Cup is fairly small potatoes. But it is interesting that after hearing so much about how President Bush hurt the country’s reputation, we now have a president who literally bows to foreign leaders in order to show he respects them, and the United States still loses these competitions. And we come up short even though this country has some of the finest, if not the finest venues, hotels and infrastructure in the world, and still lose out to places like Rio de Janeiro (which resembles a Grand Theft Auto game without the reset button), Russia (corruption) and now balmy Qatar.
Don't worry though, Barry will soon be taking another vacation to soothe his hurt feelings, right after he raises our taxes.

No, nobody in the media cares, and they will spin it to make it seem as if he is doing us a favor with his destructive actions, then they'll blather on about how he deserves ANOTHER vacation and ponder raptly about what his Sasquatch drag queen wife will be wearing.

In the '70's, we used to call such trips "junkets". Congressmen and women were known for taking taxpayer funded trips all over the world for such nonsense.

And since when is the U. S. Attorney General responsible for trying to get events such as the World Cup, Olympics, or whatever to be held in the U.S.? Just another example of BO absolutely not knowing what he is doing & being in way over his head.

Exactly!

Thanks for stopping by, Dirk! You have a nice blog.

Thank you! I appreciate it! Keep up the good work here, I've started following so I can keep up with someone else who is "right"!

Holder may as well be pimping out the World Cup. He certainly isn't doing his job at Justice!

Zilla said...

2012 can't come soon enough.

Another vacation. I wonder how much this one will cost. I guess the pres figures he'd better forget about the hoops and get back to golf. Sigh.

Soccer is a joke and so is Holder

Zilla said...

The entire Obama regime is a very bad joke - a sick prank - at the expense of the United States of America.

Zilla said...

Trestin, you've got a a very cool website! I'm adding it to my blogroll.

I watched the 'revelation' that Qatar got the bid. I believe it was preplanned, and for sporting events, including the Olympics I don't believe that our head of State or anyone reporting to him should EVER put themselves in this positions.

I'm not dismissing the fact that Obama may have made a phone call and said give it to a Muslim country or you'll pay, and sent Holder with the mistaken idea that it looked good.

Obama has no clue what it means to show strength. He just showed his heiney (sp?) to the world. Nothing about the Executive Branch is sacred to this man.

Zilla said...

It would appear that the only thing sacred to Barry is his "muslim brothers".
