Uh oh: Rumsfeld says ‘a trained ape’ could outperform Obama in Afghanistan Dan Calabrese
canada free press ^ | 3/25/2014 | Dan Calabrese

You know it wasn’t a racist comment. You also know it doesn’t matter. MSNBC has their see-what-racists-all-Obama-opponents-are talking point for the next few days.

More to the point, though, knowing Donald Rumsfeld he doesn’t care about any of that, which is one of the things I love about him. The far more important point here is the point itself - that the U.S. had a good relationship with Karzai in Afghanistan when the Bush Administration was in office. It was only when Obama and crew came in that we suddenly couldn’t work with him.

Oh no he di-int. No code there at all. As suspected all along, Donald Rumsfeld is no confirmed as a racis' hater. Think before you speak Donald. Geez. Couldn't you see that despite you not meaning anything by it the lsm will stoke the coals (maybe their not allowed to use coal) to toast you.

The act of criticizing Obama was what was racist.
That the word “ape” was used in the criticism just makes it easier for them.

I think Rumsfeld is to the point in his life when he no longer cares what anybody thinks about him. He's just going to say what he thinks and let the chips fall where they may...

laughable.

The left called Bush a monkey or names like “chipanator” all the time.

Rumsfeld’s description is accurate, a trained pet of any type would outperform Obama.

Yeah, so? An organ grinder monkey could outperform the dictator in chief.

Uh oh. You used the word “chip” which we all know is white folks code for the “n” word. As in “chip on the shoulder”. And, we all KNOW who has those. LOL! Yes, it’s getting that absurd.

I think an untrained ape could even do the job.

Should have said “trained Polar Bear”.

:-)

Personally, I think it was funny, though. I’ve gotten to the point that it IS funny. Kinda like a tragic comedy. All you can really do is laugh at the nincompoop in office. It must be really hard for him, knowing what most of the world thinks of him. That is, unless he is blessed with such depths of stupidity that he doesn’t even know.

Seriously.

I don’t think Rumsfeld gives a crap what the race baiters think.

I think Rummie was TOO complimentary when he said “trained” ape.

No he didn’t he said that the State Department could have gotten agreements from countries... So he called Hillary a trained ape.

But we already knew that.

Don’t look now, but Rusmfeld’s comment implies that the Golfer In Chief is *not* a trained ape.

Your point about being careful is valid, since this will just be fodder for the racism mill. Technically, to state that a “trained ape could do better than Obama”, obviously excludes Obama from the class of “trained apes”. The distinction is not on “ape” but on trained versus untrained...

Agree. Not even sure something at the primate level is needed. Possibly a untrained squirrel could get it done.
