Bill Whittle: Umbrella Men

Can personal charm stop a dictator? That’s what Neville Chamberlain thought he was going to do, when he implemented Plan Z. Of course it didn’t work, and World War II happened in spite of Chamberlain’s charisma and personal likability. It was Winston Churchill, the pompous and grumpy stalwart, who actually fought the war.

In this Afterburner, Bill Whittle uses this lesson from history as an allegory to discuss how President Obama assumes he can handle foreign relations.

Bill Nailed it.

Kudos Bill!

    Absolutely stupendous. Have a pic of the Resident under an umbrella but don’t want to put it here b/c it will magically grow too big — haha

    Hardnox, this is the best I have heard relative to the leadership deficit we face. Thanx so very much for putting this up. In less than 10 minutes the gentleman defined our fate if something does not change soon.

    Whittle has more a sense of history in his piss than the ENTIRE left does in their so-called “brain”. Good post, Nox.

    You don’t have to look. Here I am….

    Bill nails it as usual. The answer is no, personal charm can’t stop a dictator, besides which, he’s not charming to anyone except himself.

    Aside from Buck, of course, do we have time to wait for our next Reagan or Churchill?

    Congressman Buck? Nah. I’m shooting for the Oval…. Just need everyone in the USA to write me in..
