On the subject of President Obama's inexplicable confab last week, here's Mark Steyn in the Ocean County Register:
In years to come -- assuming, for the purposes of argument, there are any years to come -- scholars will look back at President Barack Obama's Nuclear Security Summit and marvel. For once, the cheap comparisons with 1930s appeasement barely suffice: To be sure, in 1933, the great powers were meeting in Geneva and holding utopian arms-control talks even as Hitler was taking office in Berlin. But it's difficult to imagine Neville Chamberlain in 1938 hosting a conference on the dangers of rearmament, and inviting America, France, Brazil, Liberia and Thailand . . . but not even mentioning Germany.

Yet that's what Obama just did: He held a nuclear gabfest in 2010, the biggest meeting of world leaders on American soil since the founding of the United Nations 65 years ago -- and Iran wasn't on the agenda.

Didn't Der Fuhrer write a college paper on unilateral disarmament? I seem to recall reading that somewhere. Vaguely forgivable back in the late 70s/early 80s before the Soviet collapse. Following the collapse, it's positively mentally defective.

But this lunacy is both consistent with prior stupidity AND with the contention -- one I think readily proven upon serious consideration -- that one of the defining qualities of the Left is simple: Libtards have a seriously substandard WQ ("Wisdom Quotient") and as a result simply cannot learn from experience.
