Once again, you confuse "over the edge" with ridicule and derision. You know, a lot like the rightists reaction to Maddow.

Do you ever get tired of your narrow view of the world?

Probably not.

You know, you could just stop being lazy and do a quick google search. Just saying, because you would have turned up this:

Why hasn't the Obama administration labeled 'Boko Haram' a terrorist organization? – The Lead with Jake Tapper - CNN.com Blogs

Quote:
Possible explanations for reluctance to label the group can be found in a 2012 letter to then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton from Nigeria experts, including John Campbell, the U.S. ambassador to Nigeria under President George Bush.
The letter claims that the foreign terrorist organization (FTO) designation would limit the State Department’s ability to shape “long-term” strategy and encourage the Nigerian government to use military action rather than diplomacy.
“We believe that an FTO designation for Boko Haram would limit American policy options to those least likely to work, and would undermine the domestic political conditions necessary in Nigeria for an enduring solution,” said the group in the letter.

It is also worth remembering that the African Union was trying to end the civil war in Nigeria via diplomatic efforts and they felt labeling one side a terrorist organization right before peace talks would be counter productive and undermine any possible diplomatic solution. You'll notice that as soon as the peace talks broke down without a final agreement, and Boko Haram dramatically increased attacks on civilians, that is when it got put on the terrorism list.

I don't think he ever quit. Anything to bash Hillary, or whoever else from the "other side" is a possible Presidential candidate.

El Rushbo trolls out another batch of free publicity.

Really, who cares what he says?

Too bad Obama didn't tell Clinton that Boko Haram was a terrorist organization.

Over the edge? Not feeling it, sorry.

Wah! People are pointing out that Republican propaganda is worthless drivel so you whine about them. Boo hoo. Your whining doesn't mean right-wing propaganda is no longer worthless, it just means right-wing propaganda is worthless and you like to whine and cry about the left.

Strange how the torturecoward Limbaugh is constantly whining about what liberals would do or would say or would think, but is never describes as being over the edge. No one here has a radio show they use to whine and cry like Limbaugh does.

Like nobody on the left ever "bashed" Ms. Palin. Nobody ever called her anything derogatory. Nobody symbolically burned her at the stake and would have liked to have done it literally.

Does the left ever get tired of being the most obvious, laughable hypocrites on the face of the planet? The left is certainly the more putrid half of a throughly rotted, diseased political system. I may not agree with everything the right says, but at least I know what they actually stand for. That's more than I can say for the ever-morphing, ever-hypocritical, ever-repressive left.
