Saudi Adviser Wonders What Obama has been Putting in his Tea

Saudi King Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz al-Sa

With all the time that the Saudis have been trying to take us over, you might have thought that they would be a little more familiar with liberals.

Apparently not. 

“We are glad the Americans are here,” said Ahmed al-Ibrahim, an adviser to some of Saudi Arabia’s royals and officials, when I met with him recently, “but we fear that the president has lost credibility after Syria.”

“The bond of trust between America and Saudi Arabia has been broken in the Obama years,” al-Ibrahim said. “We feel we have been stabbed in the back by Obama.”

“Every time that Obama had to choose between his enemies and his friends, he always chose his enemies,” he said. “We don’t know what he’s putting in his tea.”

Chamomile, wildflowers and uncut progressivism. Did the Saudis really think that Obama was bowing exclusively to them? The left respects only one thing; unmitigated hostility. The more you hate their country, the more they assume that they wronged you and they have to make it right.

But it’s nice to see how well that soft power is coming along. It’s coming along so well that top Saudi advisors are openly showing their contempt by making drug jokes about their ally in the White House.

If this is what they’re willing to go on record as saying, you can imagine what they’re saying in private.

The Saudis used to be discreet. They hated you and wanted to kill you, but they wouldn’t say it to your face. At this rate, Riyadh is going to openly teach hijackers how to get through American airports just to see if Obama says anything.

    “Every time that Obama had to choose between his enemies and his friends, he always chose his enemies,”

    Maybe these were not Obama’s enemies. Just a guess.

    • Simon Bricklin

      Seems to be he choose our enemies every time and his friends

      • danfan

        indeed, we’re all his enemies – America-loving legal citizens, that is

    Evil doesn’t share power. But they can take comfort in knowing that he’s still supplying arms to al-Nusra in Syria and the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.

      There must be something in your tea that makes you write such egregious nonsense

        No question here ! You are a DEMORAT!

    Is Obama stupid enough to support Salafism?

  • david selvers

    There is absolutely no explanation as to how this fool got into the White House other than there were record numbers of stupid people who were, unfortunately, able to stumble into the polling station. No doubt there was an instructor demonstrating the proper use of the pencil.

      I was in San Francisco on election night in 2008, walking back to my hotel just as the results were being announced. Crowds of –how can I put it politely?– humanoid freaks were out en mass, cheering and screaming with delight. As I walked along, two thoughts occurred to me: 1) “The nation’s underbelly has risen up and seized control” and 2) “My God, what have we done?”

      After 8 years of the ‘Polarizer in Chief’ and his buddies (Cheney, Rumsfeld), the America public would have voted in a head of cabbage over another Republican. The biggest crime of Bush was using 9/11 as just another political football, thereby making the entire left think that ‘terrorism’ was just (another) of his lies. Don’t forget his flagrant lie that islamic terrorists were ‘misinterpreting the quran’. Bush personally delayed the Counter-Jihad by at least 25 years, and finished the extreme polarization (that Gingrich started) of American politics.

      Obama may be a closet muslim who bows to Saudi Royals, but at least he doesn’t walk around holding their hands and putting their checks in his pockets.

      Could be some fraud going on here?? Just another reason why every state should have Voter Photo ID.

      • AlwaysWatching

        I agree but I think a bigger problem is not voter ID but the people counting the votes in the large cities, 190 of which miraculously voted for Obama by over 100%

    • Tim

      There were probably quite a number of dead people and imaginary people ‘voting’ for him in key states (Ohio). Voter fraud is easy to accomplish when voters don’t have to show photo IDs.

    “Every time that Obama had to choose between his enemies and his friends, he always chose his enemies,”
    He does the same thing to the American people…he just flips them off with a stroke of a pen.

    I dozed off for a few years after the Soviet Union officially collapsed, and when I woke up the “normal” people had all turned into rabbid greenies and lefties. It is indeed a little surreal. Has anybody noticed Muhummad’s army gathering on the horizon? Nope, apparently not.

    • fush

      Ironically, all the hard-core lefties that I knew, who actually supported the Soviet Union, have taken a strong swing to the right (David Horowitz is but one of many). What to make of it? What to make of it indeed….

    • fush

      When I say hard-core lefty, I mean the “lets-blow-shit-up” type is. The ones who put the “struggle” in revolution. Modern day lefties all claim to be pacifists. They wouldn’t know what “Jihad” is if it jumped through their bedroom window and massacred them in their sleep. They are essentially non-military people, which is why they suck at fighting wars.

    Political Correctness = Rabid Cowardliness

    When you elect such a people and live in such a stupid society – you need to wait for the fire to get sufficiently larger before something is done. Yes, a lot of damage will be done, but human stupidity has to fall to natural selection.
