How to describe Biden's victory speech? Absurd? Preposterous? Incredible? Insulting? A steaming pile of crap?

(Joe Biden campaign website)

President Joe Biden would have us believe that we won in Afghanistan. His Tuesday afternoon televised speech declared as much. Yeah sure, we’ve got them on the run.

“Isis K, we are not done with you yet,” he proclaimed with a clenched jaw. “The United States will ever forgive or forget,” he repeated from previous speeches.

“We” he kept saying as he took credit for getting just about every American out. He once again talked about how “we” successfully dealed with the “Talybon.” (His pronunciation.) At the same time, blaming others for whatever failures he wouldn’t admit.

It was a rerun of his prior pitiful rationalizations, in which he described a world that doesn’t exist. Prior speeches in which he saved “America’s sons and daughters.” Word for word from the previous spoiled baloney he sliced, expecting us to swallow the rot.

How, we wondered up to the moment of his speech, would he justify this catastrophe? Astonishingly, he didn’t even coming close to rebutting the bi-partisan criticism of his rushed, arbitrary withdraw date. Or provide a reasonable explanation of why the military went first, people later and valuable military equipment never. Or why he closed Bagram Air Force Base in the middle of the night, snuck the troops without telling our allies and leaving an arsenal so rich that it makes the “Talybon” one of the world’s best equipped armies.

Somehow, he has persuaded himself that our hasty, humiliating abandonment will make America “safer” and “more secure.” Not that he needed to explain why.

In his own failing mind, he gave a stunning response to the majority of Americans who don’t approve of his actions with platitudes piled high on bromides, on top of banalities, on top of absurdities.

“With all his heart,” he averred, he believes that his was the best, wisest and only possible course of action. That his “plan” had the unanimous backing of the secretaries of state and defense, chairman of the Joint Chief of Staff and all of its service chiefs and the commanders on the ground. If that’s true–and I don’t think it is–fire them all.

Biden got his way, i.e. being able to say that he alone ended the war, praise the Lord. The same way that British General Charles Cornwallis ended the Revolutionary War by surrendering to General George Washington at Yorktown.

Loathsome hardly describes his imperious attitude, his disdain for the intelligence of Americans and his obstinate denial of reality. No, I don’t mean to equate the last two weeks with the attack on Pearl Harbor, but they truly will be looked back on as infamy.

After giving his Victory III speech, he again turned his back and left the podium, without taking any shouted media questions. Just as he turned his back on our honor.

  • Biden has handed the Taliban one of the richest arms caches in history. You have to wonder why.

  • In reply to Richard Davis:

    And why do you think that is?

  • In reply to Aquinas wired:

    I was asking this esteemed audience. Why do YOU think?

  • The majority of Americans wanted us to end this 20-year conflict.

  • In reply to Aquinas wired:

    If you voted for Biden, you told me and millions of others that we wore the uniform for nothing. If I'm wrong, explain, please.

  • In reply to davegorak:

    Our military that served in Afghanistan are true patriots who in thousands gave up their lives for a failed policy through the course of almost 20 years. Until Biden had the courage to finally end this misguided mission marred by lies and corruption.

  • In reply to Aquinas wired:

    Not on point.

  • In reply to Dennis Byrne:

    Thanks, Dennis. If "Mr Wired" can't handle the simplest of questions, why does he bother posting his comments? Biden has "courage"? Don't make me laugh. He showed up at Dover AFB to honor those 13 service members who died during the suicide bombing at Kabul Airport and kept looking at his wrist watch. He got plenty of criticism for his disinterest from the families of those who died in vain, but that makes no difference for him and a Democratic Party that no longer believes in this nation's founding principles.

  • In reply to davegorak:

    dave, that President Biden allegedly looked at his watch during the ceremony has been shown to be false. He appeared to only after the ceremony was clearly over. Check something out before you swallow it.

  • "Loathsome hardly describes his imperious attitude, his disdain for the intelligence of Americans and his obstinate denial of reality."

    Did you recycle these lines from a previous post on Trump?

  • Nope. Not that I recall. So what?

  • "Absurd? Preposterous? Incredible? Insulting? A steaming pile of crap?" I hope you found that purging your hatred was therapeutic, Dennis.

  • In reply to jnorto:

    Do you agree with what Biden did?

  • In reply to Dennis Byrne:

    I'm addressing your pathological hatred. You are not discussing issues, you are venting your obsession with one man.

  • In reply to jnorto:

    Rage, not hate. What issues are those?

  • In reply to Dennis Byrne:

    Example: “Pathological hatred.”

  • In reply to jnorto:

    Have you addressed your own pathological hatred of the last president? So, do you agree and approve of what Biden did?

  • Is the Illinois Policy Institute now paying you extra for employing billingsgate.

  • In reply to Aquinas wired:

    Huh? Just for the record, Illinois Policy doesn't pay me anything. Nobody pays me anything. Nada. Rein. Nun.Perhaps you'd like to step up with a little something.

  • In reply to Dennis Byrne:

    That's a shame. It tried to recruit me years ago. But that of course was going nowhere. But you. You're an ideal recruit. Climate change skeptic. Supporter of medical quacks---whatever happened to that one you wrote about earlier this month? Biden attack dog. Staunch defender of whatever nonsense comes out of a Republican elected official's mouth. Step up to the plate. In the long rum you're going to strike out anyway.

  • In reply to Aquinas wired:

    " Staunch defender of whatever nonsense comes out of a Republican elected official's mouth." Sure, that's why I wrote that Trump "is a jerk." Wait. What was my post about. Oh yeah, something about Biden's stupid speech. Care to defend that?

  • Trump initiated the process to end the war in Afghanistan. His administration started the ball rolling...something most all Americans wanted some administration to do. Trumps administration was doing just that...starting the process. If re-elected president, it would have been the Trump administration implementing the withdraw plan. Former administration officials as well as Trump himself have said there were many conditions to be met...the merits of which could be debated. Nothing was written in stone that couldn't have been modified going forward. Biden lied when he said he was boxed in, had no good alternatives, was bound by the Trump agreement. His administration has passed the buck for the chaotic, bloody, ill conceived, ill prepared, & poorly executed withdrawl and evacuation from the mess that was Afghanistan. He and his administration f****d this up...no one else.

  • In reply to HSPARKS:

    Wait, didn't Biden say the buck stops with him?

  • He did say that Dennis...another lie
