The failure of success.

Okay, forget that Mubarak, Gaddafi and bin Laden are gone; it’s easy to do if your name is Mitt Romney. He’s still on that “Apology Tour” kick. So it’s left largely to other republicans to throw dirt at the Commander in Chief over some of his other key foreign affairs wins.

See, The New York Times reported that the President has a “Kill List”. This is obviously the first time in American history such a dastardly thing has been done. And you know that Stuxnet computer virus? The weapon as technologically significant as the H bomb that was dropped on Hiroshima? Turns out stopping the Iranians from blasting Israel into the stone-age isn’t nearly as important as finding out who spilled the beans to the press.

I seem to recall the Bush Administration strutting their stuff at every opportunity that they pulled off another victory of some kind in the War on Terror. There was always a lot of high-fiving and chest-beating, but that’s about all.

Obama’s foes around the world aren’t nearly as smart as his foes at home. His enemies abroad burn him in effigy whenever things go wrong. Here, they do it when things go right.
