So, you know how President Obama has kind of made it a thing to surreptitiously drone the bejesus out of anyone that looks like an islamic radical? Well, it turns out that Grand Moff Tarkin — err…I mean Donald Rumsfeld — isn’t sure whether or not the President has indeed joined the other side in the “War on Terror”. When asked at a conservative circle derp held at the David Horowtiz Freedom Center if he thought President Obama has “switched sides” (because those are the kinds of questions you’re expected to answer at these stupid things), Rummy wittily replied with a wicked grin that he “can’t tell”.
Here’s the exchange:
“As you go around the country, do you have any sense or the same sort of sinking feeling that the rest of us have that [Obama has] actually switched sides in the War on Terror?” the man asked, drawing a smattering of applause from the audience.
“You know, I just don’t feel competent to answer,” Rumsfeld said. “I can’t tell.”
Rumsfeld added, “It bothers me greatly that he’s unwilling to identify the enemy. I don’t see how you win if you don’t.”
