Unearthed by James Carter IV (of the "President Carter" Carters and the 47 percent video) and first shared by Talking Points Memo is this bit of video amazement. In it, Donald Rumsfeld, Secretary of Defense under Bush, jokingly suggests that he "can't tell" if maybe President Obama now wants the terrorists to win the War on Terror.

What Obozo and his administration wants is the ONLY thing about this administration that IS transparent.

I miss them, too. I wish Rumsfeld had had the guts to say what he’s thinking and knows in his heart. He knows what a commie, America hating bastard he is and should say it.

Rummy never makes a definite comment or opinion, he is always on the fence. He is a little too cerebral for me.

I wish carter and the carter of the president carter carters would crawl back under the rocks they were born under and stay there.

Yeah, the libs think Carter got a good "gotcha" on ole Rummy with this...just like Romeny's 47% comment. The comments at the site are pretty interesting.

Rummy - like most Americans - know what side 0 is on...he's just too nice to say it.

Shooting straight has its price. He’s right.

The show, ‘24’ was just a preview of possibilities of things to come.. if good men and women do not step up to the throne and toss O’s arse&regime to the winds.

What would happen if he did say it? He has already been called every name in the book, I mean I guess they could try to off him but he has already been marginalized so why do that. Even if he did say it the one who would believe him already no Obama is a commie.

Rumsfeld was asked a question and should have answered truthfully. A truthful answer would have brought more attention to how bad Obama is for America.

I do think people in power who could really speak out are now afraid for their lives and the lives of their families if they cross the line.

I’ve thought the same thing as Donald for a very, very long time.

My suspicion was based on the fact that since Obama is able to declare martial law .. and should we have a major attack - especially if it’s in more than one city .. it would present the perfect opportunity to exert power.

You can’t tell I don’t trust these people .. can you ..??

I agree with you. The bunch in charge right now seem downright dangerous.

If he’s allowed to do so, Obama will make Stalin and Hitler look like Boy Scouts. The same goes with Hitlery.

I'm not so sure that comment has the same meaning as it used to.

Rummy is an old school pol who uses the oblique attack akin to a boning blade statement to make his point. The problem with this in this day and age it doesn’t seem strong enough now one needs to use a butcher knife, chopping blade, to dismember the octopus.
