Yes, al-Qaeda would dance in the streets if Obama is elected

Fox News reports that the Obama camp is upset by comments made by Representative Steve King (R, IA-5).

King told the Spencer (Iowa) Daily Reporter:

"I will tell you that, if he is elected president, then the radical Islamists, the al-Qaida, the radical Islamists and their supporters, will be dancing in the streets in greater numbers than they did on September 11 because they will declare victory in this War on Terror."

An Obama mouthpiece took offense:

"These comments have no place in our politics, and we hope Senator McCain will repudiate them like he has previous offensive comments from his supporters," Obama spokesman Tommy Vietor said in a statement.

Here's the thing.

King was right.

If Senator Barack Hussein Obama (D-IL) wins the election, al-Qaeda will be dancing in the streets.

Just like they'd be if Senator Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton (D-IL-AR-DC-NY) is elected.

Both Clinton and Obama say they'd pull U.S. troops out of Iraq. I will say that I think Obama means it, while I think Clinton is just saying she would in order to get elected.

My candidate, Senator John Sidney McCain, III (R-AZ), won't cut and run. He'll make sure the job is done before our service members all come home.

The election of Senator McCain would cause fear and trembling in our enemies.

The election of Obama or Clinton would just make things worse.

Clinton, because, though I personally think she'll leave the troops there, al-Qaeda thinks she'll cut and run, and they'll be emboldened.

Obama, because he would cut and run. He has no backbone. He has no foreign policy experience. And he has no place in the Oval Office.


  1. Not sure who's the bigger "one," you or Steve King. This kind of BS politics should be banned.

    Voting for McCain.

  2. I'm confused.

    You got a problem with me saying al-Qaeda would celebrate if either Democrat wins?

    But this kind of stuff is okay?

  3. Yeah, because mine is spoken as a joke. You're dead serious. In any event, sorry to have bothered you. Steve King is a fool who runs his mouth way too often, including when he called to electrify the border fence, saying that electrification was okay for the cattle, so why not for the illegal aliens. And don't think that I'm not a border security hawk, becuase I am.

  4. Yes, I'm quite serious about saying that al-Qaeda preferring either Democrat to McCain. It's true.

    Regarding King: He may well be an idiot. But not for saying something that's true. Remember, a stopped clock is still right twice a day. This may very well be one of those times.

  5. [...] al-Qaeda dance in the streets if the Obamessia is elected? Basil has the [...]

  6. [...] Basil continues to be a voice of sanity in the blogosphere: “Yes, al-Qaeda would dance in the streets if Obama is elected.” [...]

  7. Please don't tell me King apologized for this.

  8. No, he hasn't apologized. I heard him on John Gibson (Fox News Radio) tonight, and he wasn't apologetic at all.

  9. Allow me to chime in on Senator Obama (M-IL)...'nuff said.

  10. Heh. But I do worry about this country. There are actually people who think that Moonbat Obama would be a good president.

    Probably the same group that believes in pyramid power, UFO aliens, and moon landing conspiracies.
