There are some jobs where there is just not any room for error and the president of the United States is one of them. Yet Dems pushed to have a man with dementia lead this country, and now just look at this mess he is got is in with Afghanistan. The sad thing is Dems think this is a win. Rep Steve Scalise appeared on “Face The Nation” with Nancy Cordes earlier this week and talked about the Afghanistan fiasco.
“You and your House colleagues just received a briefing from the Sec of State and Def what did they tell you and are you confident that all U.S. Diplomats are going to be able to get out of Afghanistan safely?” Host Nancy Cordes asked.
“…It’s a very dire situation when you see the United States embassy being evacuated. In fact, you just had President Biden a few days ago saying you wouldn’t see helicopters evacuating the embassy like Saigon, and yet, here we are. This is President Biden’s Saigon moment, and unfortunately, it was very predictable,” Scalise replied
“It seems like many in President Biden’s intelligence community got this devastatingly wrong, and I think a lot of questions will be asked later about why just weeks ago they were saying something completely different than what we’re seeing on the ground today in Afghanistan,” he concluded.
Cordes talked about the Biden Administration blaming Trump and asked if the failure to evacuate safely was inevitable.
“No, in fact, you’re seeing a lot of finger-pointing and blaming … You know, there used to be a saying that the buck stops here on the president’s desk to blame everybody else. But look, President Trump had an agreement in place, that was conditions-based and those conditions were not met in fact many of the conditions included that the Taliban wouldn’t overtake the cities that they have now overtaken under President Biden’s leadership,” Scalise replied.
“This sends a more concerning message to our allies around the world, really sends a concerning message to our enemies around the world who are watching this,” he continued. “China is very involved in what’s happening right now in Afghanistan, as are other adversaries. And so they’re seeing just how easy it was to overtake these areas where the president really said it wouldn’t happen. And it did happen. So it’s an epic failure of President Biden’s foreign policy, and he needs to take ownership of it and take other steps to make sure this doesn’t happen again.”

Since the segment ran the Taliban has taken over the country, and we have Americans left behind. Yet to Dems this failure was somehow a win. They have been sugar-coating B.S. all over the MSM and Dems like Pelosi have gone as far as to praise Biden. But anyone that has a lick of sense sees that this is a huge blunder and has left us even more vulnerable to our adversaries, as they see we can’t even evacuate a country properly.
