Does State think Texas is a foreign country?

posted at 8:46 am on April 30, 2009 by Ed Morrissey

Last weekend, the blog Stormin’s Morning Java noticed an odd claim on the State Department website.  In a list that intended to brag about how much Hillary Clinton had traveled as the new Secretary of State to foreign countries, Foggy Bottom included a trip to Texas:

I figured that this was simply a clerical error, albeit a rather stupid one by a clerk who didn’t realize that Texas wasn’t a foreign country.  Unfortunately, it turns out that State has apparently decided to give full diplomatic recognition to the Republic of Texas, helping Governor Rick Perry by mooting a need to secede first.  In their press release celebrating 100 days of the Obama administration, State continues to include travel to Texas as one of their major accomplishments:

OVERALL DEPARTMENT POLICY ACCOMPLISHMENTS, REGULATORY INITIATIVES, AND INTERAGENCY EFFORTS

In the first 100 Days of the Obama Administration, Secretary Clinton and the State Department have made significant progress in advancing America’s national security goals and promoting America’s values around the world.

Secretary Clinton is already the most traveled Secretary of State in a new Administration. The Secretary’s trips have included her inaugural trip to Asia, the Middle East and Europe, Mexico and across the border to Texas, the Hague in the Netherlands, Europe with President Obama, Haiti and the Dominican Republic, the Summit of the Americas in Trinidad and Tobago with President Obama, and to Iraq and Kuwait.

The work undertaken on these trips, the many bilateral and trilateral meetings hosted by Secretary Clinton, and the tireless efforts of others throughout the State Department have contributed to early and significant progress on the following priorities: Afghanistan/Pakistan policy, the Middle East, Iraq, Asia, Russia, North Korea, the Western Hemisphere, the climate crisis, engaging in public diplomacy, and other core issues.

Wow.  Has Hillary visited Maryland and Virginia, too?  If she visits Utah, will she bow to the Governor, or just curtsey?

Let’s also recall the “significant progress” State has made in the above areas:

  • Afghanistan – Completely failed to get more combat troops from NATO.
  • Pakistan – Say, isn’t that the Taliban just outside the capital in Islamabad?
  • Middle East – Netanyahu won’t budge until Obama does something about Iran … which conveniently got left off the list.
  • Russia – Gave a mistranslated reset button to Sergei Lavrov, who then told Hillary and Obama that they wouldn’t lift a finger to stop Iran from going nuclear.  Oh, and the US retreated from missile defense in Europe.  Smart power.
  • North Korea — North Korea? The country that just defied Obama, launched a long-range missile, and kicked out all the UN inspectors and declared a restart on all nuclear programs?  That North Korea?  It that’s “significant progress,” then I hate to see what a setback looks like.
  • Engaging in public diplomacy – Yes, like telling the Europeans that she doesn’t understand multiparty democracy, that our system is better, and Europeans didn’t have democracy before the US.  Oh, and let’s not forget getting the names of her EU counterparts wrong.  Thank goodness all that happened in public!
  • “Other core issues” — Well, they did get an iPod to the Queen, and bowed to Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah.

Given all of that, I’m wondering when Texas plans to break off diplomatic relations.

The big questions for Hillary should focus on her outrageous discrimination:

She has visited Mexico…so, why not New Mexico? Is she too hung up on her support for the old staid 18th Century regime to try to take time out to visit a 21st Century hip entity?

And why the turn about…she has never visited Old Zealand.

Old York. The wonderful folks there would like a word with her.

She has talked to the leader of Byelorus…why not the leader of Chyernorus? Obama would be really p.o.’d if he found out about this faux pas.

I purchased a new atlas just a week ago…I’d like to have Madame Secretary of State explain what happened to Dahomey, and Upper Volta.

Wasn’t it in the middle of the Clinton Administration that the White House folks referred citizens of New Mexico to the Mexican Embassy or Mexican Olympic Committee to obtain tickets to the events scheduled for Atlanta?

Well, let’s be at least be thankful Hillary isn’t dancing with Kim Chong-il…yet.

Although I don’t live in Texas, I have a great respect for their sense of self reliance and individualism. (something the state that I live in is losing very quickly) I think that the State Department would view Texas as a foreign country, simply because the majority of people who live in Texas aren’t looking for a handout, more government, and don’t worship “The One”.

Since I’m retired now, maybe I should give thought to relocating.

I don’t think you’re paranoid. This is VERY typical of Hillary and will probably be typical of “give ‘em the finger in your eye” Obama. They’re both pathological in this respect.

Obama has been a big marketing bonzana for Texas. I do PR, Marketing & produce videos. The amount of material we have produced that are targeting business’s in other states to re-locate has been staggering. And they are coming. Many saw a year ago what was coming and local business are hiring.
The ramparts are being built and that Alamo spirit is alive and well. If you are sick of your state & local taxes, sick of the blue people around you then join us in Texas – But you can only come if you have a RED streak and are ready to fight the Obamacomms.

You know, since you promised to be bi-partisan and all? Or can we expect more of the same, calling out radio show hosts, ignoring the tea parties, reminding people you won, keeping lists, etc.?”

I went from the People’s Socialist State of Wisconsin to reality when we moved to Texas. I lived in Congresstitute Ron Kind’s barony and could not believe the crap the Socialist kept spewing. For example, do you know this Attorney states ALL elections, including that of the President of the United States, are decided by majority votes? Or how about all of those jobs Obama created when Ron helped pass the succubus spending bill?

Since moving to Texas, I’ve seen Fox News displayed on restaurant TVs, Patriot Riders proudly escorting a fallen Veteran and have little grandmothers praise me for my ‘Obama ‘hearts’ Marxism’ sticker.

I explained that Texans are proud of our country and when you are proud you fly the flag. Now that have lived in two other states – I realize that other places don’t fly their state flags all over the place. Kinda sad – but then, other states don’t have flags near as wonderful as the Lone Star.

Since Texas is its own country again, here are the rules:

1. If you love freedom, then you’re welcome here. This automatically disqualifies anyone from California, New York, and Obama voters. Exceptions will be made on a case-by-case basis (no exceptions will be made for Obama voters). You will be shown a real gun; if you wet yourself or start crying for gun control, you’re out on your ass.

2. If you are found to be in Texas illegally, you will be deported to France – no matter the country from which you originated.

3. All residents and potential residents will be required to learn the difference between “barbecuing” and “grilling”. If you can’t tell the difference between the two, you will be summarily mocked, then deported to France.

True! I saw that right after I posted and was busy cleaning off my monitor – I’m glad you reposted it.
