Rumsfeld: ‘Ape’ Better Than Obama


rumsfeldSpeaking on Fox News, former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld declared Monday night that a “trained ape” could do better on foreign relations than President Obama.

While speaking about the administration’s actions in Afghanistan on On the Record with Greta van Susteren, Rumsfeld declared: “We have status of forces agreements probably with 100, 125 countries in the world. This administration, the White House and the State Department, have failed to get a status of forces agreement. A trained ape could get a status of forces agreement. It does not take a genius.”

Rumsfeld also touted the Bush administration’s record on the issue, saying it had a “first-rate” relationship with Afghan President Hamid Karzai, but that it went “downhill like a toboggan” under President Obama. Read more at Chicago Sun-Times.

  1. Rumsfeld is just envious that Obama and his team have done better than Bush 43’s team, of which Rumsfeld was a part.

    Of course, that is a low bar to surpass. Rumsfeld and Rice should retire to the private sector in shame.

  2. Response to #2

    Obama and his team have done better than Bush?? If you are talking about driving the country into the ground, I would have to agree. Obama is a disaster. Sometimes people don’t notice such things right away, or they don’t want to admit it, it is too scary for them to contemplate.

    Obama is bringing shame upon the country. Obama should be impeached!

    Rumsefeld deserves credit for speaking out.

  3. Charlie the world is in turmoil no one trust us are you kidding this country is in trouble with a vacationing spender Rumsfeld is right on an ape would do better

  4. Writing a look of innocence from Donald Rumsfield is like putting a cape on the statue of Liberty.

    Rumsfield is not a favorable spokesperson no matter how incoherent Mr. Obama’s plans and legacy might be.


    What do you call Obama in a traffic jam?

    — Forced legislation.

  5. Rumsfeld did not say the a trained ape could do better than Obama on foreign policy. He spoke only about status of forces agreements.
