The saddest truth in politics is that people get the leaders they deserve

Noted foreign policy genius shoots himself in the foot. Again.

That’s gotta hurt. Every. Freaking. Time.

Mitt Romney was damned Presidential yesterday in pointing out the failed foreign policy of the Obama Adminstration regarding the “Arab Spring” nations that have bitten our feckless President in the behind.

Not content to let the Romney campaign define his craptacular skillz as a diplomat, King Putt strolled off the driving range campaign trail to deliver a doozy of a statement, saying that Egypt was not an ally of ours, directly contradicting foreign policy towards one of our two staunchest Arab allies.

Today, his minions tried to clean up his mess while the media continued to pretend that they aren’t backing the most gaffe-prone dunce to ever hold the office:

President Barack Obama didn’t intend to signal any change in the U.S.-Egypt relationship last night when he said Egypt is not an “ally,” the White House told The Cable today.

“I don’t think that we would consider them an ally, but we don’t consider them an enemy,” Obama said. “They’re a new government that is trying to find its way. They were democratically elected. I think that we are going to have to see how they respond to this incident.”

That comment had Egypt watchers scratching their heads, especially since technically, Egypt was designated as a Major Non-NATO Ally in 1989 when Congress first passed the law creating that status, which gives them special privileges in cooperating with the United States, especially in the security and technology areanas.

Mr. Fifty-Seven States then vowed to send Egyptian leader Morsi an iPod of his favorite speeches to smooth things over, and asked to be left alone to finish his waffle.

    The Jon Stewart bit writes itself.

    Clip of Obama: “I don’t think that we would consider them an ally, but we don’t consider them an enemy,”

    Cut to Jon Stewart. “Let’s be clear here, people. ‘Ally’ is a term of art, and you have to have something like a official Non-NATO Ally designation for a country before you… (hand to ear) I’m being told that Egypt has been officially designated as a MAJOR Non-NATO ally. Uh, since uh, twenty… three years ago.” (Cue puppy dog face.)

    Bob, you are making yourself look foolish.
