The Buck Stops With Me

A sailor was on his way off the ship for a much anticipated liberty, but had to get past an hornery chief first. Naturally the chief looked him up and down and pronounced “Get a haircut.”

Dejected, he knew there were probably 5 others ahead of him with the same orders. Rounding the corner he saw that the line was actually longer than that.

Thinking quickly, he went back and presented himself to the chief and said… “How do my shoes look NOW?”

“They’ll do. Get goin’.”

Biden’s speech today attempted the same misdirection. He assertively defended the decision to withdraw from Afghanistan, as if that were actually at issue.

Hey. It wasn’t even your IDEA. We all KNOW we need to get our troops out of Afghanistan. The problem was the total lack of planning, the sloppy execution, and the massive failure to recognize the respective capabilities of the Taliban or the Afghan Security Force.

Meanwhile, back in July….

The Taliban is not the North Vietnamese army. They’re not remotely comparable in terms of capability. “There’s going to be no circumstances where you’re going to see people being lifted off the roof of a US Embassy in Afghanistan.”

Joe Biden – July 2021

Joe assured us this would be nothing like the fall of Saigon.

No. It’s even worse. They thought they had weeks, when they had hours.

You can’t boldly state  “I’m the president of the United States, and the buck stops with me” while simultaneously blaming your failure on Trump, Obama, the Afghans, and everyone BUT yourself.

But hey Joe, your shoes look just fine.

I’m Rob Jones & I approve this message.

One thought on “The Buck Stops With Me

  1. I’d say he’s deliberately trying to make our country look bad, but I’m not certain he has enough functioning brain cells to come up with this plan. Having said that, whomever DID come up with this plan needs to be court marshalled or hung depending on their military or civilian status. If Biden actually made this decision (and we know he ignored the advice from the military to at least keep some troops there and draw down slowly so something horrendous doesn’t happen), then I wonder how much more proof people need to understand that they elected an incompetent and likely dangerous person to run our country. Oh, and the decision to not give US citizens priority on the flights home? That sounds treasonous.
