"The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left." Ecclesiastes 10:2
This is precisely how any organization would hope their spokesperson might respond when entangled in a controversy of their own making: Doubling down and petulantly insisting that your many critics are idiots.
“Once you identify a root cause in an enemy with whom you’re at war, you’re expected to do something about it to erode their support. If the root cause is Middle Eastern unemployment and economic stagnation, well, that’s something the U.S. government can address, at least at the margins.” he theorized. “If the root cause is Islamic doctrine and identity, from which Salafists take their inspiration and for which they hope to establish a durable caliphate, there ain’t much the United States can do.” here
Stupid isn’t fixable but there is a way to get rid of it. It’s called “firing”, but that would leave poor ole Barack alone in D.C., taking selfies of himself with no one to admire them. Of course the remedy to that, would be a much-needed self-firing.
But we should scrape up some pity for poor ole Liberal drone Harf. She’s too much the regime loyalists and too indoctrinated in Liberal Lunacy to have much hope of regaining a minuscule bit of self-respect and intelligence . . . at least not as long as she keeps rejecting both, with such vigor.
Harf, Obama and all regime loyalist are incapable to uttering the facts — like that the “root cause” is their less than peaceful r e l i g i o n. It’s not as if it were some big mystery, only decipherable by “The X-Files” or Angela Lansbury.
But I do have a suggestion for Harf. Volunteer for the regime and go to the former country’s recognized as: Iran, Syria and Iraq . . . on a personal regime “jobs fair”. She could be Obama’s personal ‘head hunter’, with many ‘qualified’ applicants, no doubt. I’m sure there are many meat markets looking for good, well qualified butchers-from-Baghdad and pyrotechnics enthusiasts, especially in Harf’s own, home town.
Ms. Barf, oops, Harf, could surely find these ‘folks’ good paying, $15 buck an hour jobs and end the “extremist” crisis — if that’s what the Obama regime, really wanted?
