Paul Mirengoff seems to have the same reaction I did to Obama’s “bumps in the road” quote.
The curious thing wasn’t that the president referred to the deaths of several U.S. embassy personnel as “bumps in the road”–that’s typical of a president who has no perspective on history or international relations. The curious thing is the part of his quote referring to Islam as “the one organizing principle” in “a lot of these places.”
Where are the protests? Where’s the indignation from the Council on American Islamic Relations? If this comes out of the mouth of anyone else, it’s fuel for fire. But it comes from the Zero and … nothing. Unless you’ve heard something I haven’t.
