You cannot make this stuff up.
This transcript of an actual Q and A between a reporter and President Obama\’s paid liar, Press Secretary Josh Earnest, took place last week. Media coverage of outrageous crap from the Obama administration being what it is, I just saw it a few minutes ago:
Q Jeb Bush said yesterday that “ISIS didn\’t exist when my brother was President.” He has a point, doesn\’t he?
MR. EARNEST: No, I don\’t think that he does. We\’ve sort of been through the history here.
Q ISIS didn\’t exist when his brother was President.
MR. EARNEST: Well, again, I think that\’s missing the point, actually. But I\’ll allow others to critique his position.
Q I mean, what about that, though? I mean, ISIS – the larger point there is that because the President decided to complete a full withdrawal from Iraq – and of course we can go back and debate the circumstances around that, but you didn\’t have the status forces agreement with the Iraqis that you wanted to have and so forth – that that vacuum allowed ISIS to develop into the threat to this country and to that region that they are today. Isn\’t there something to that?
MR. EARNEST: No, there\’s not. Because, again, the outgrowth of – we know that ISIL was an outgrowth of al Qaeda in Iraq that did not exist prior to the fateful decision made by the previous administration to launch an invasion of that country. And that is also a relevant fact.
Well, there you have it sports fans. ISIS (or ISIL, which is what the really smart people like Barack Obama call it) did not exist until 2011, years after George Bush left office. But it\’s all his fault because we invaded Iraq in 2003.
I have a question for Josh Earnest and his boss: In January, 2014 – five years after President Bush left office – President Obama characterized ISIS as a nothing-with-nothing group; a “jayvee squad”, to use his own words. But today, less than a year and a half later and entirely under President Obama\’s stewardship, this map shows what ISIS controls (with the land area growing larger every day).
You are looking at a land area greater than the entire United Kingdom.
And then there is the untold number of people who, as ISIS expanded over the past 16 months, have been tortured and murdered in the most gruesome ways possible for their “crime” of not believing in the same form of Islam that ISIS represents.
Maybe Mr. Earnest and Mr. Obama can advise us who the hell is responsible for that? Bush? Reagan? Taft? Waldo? The Man in the Moon?
There are 20 more months before we see the end of this nightmare administration and its pack of liars. It can\’t come too soon.
