A slang basketball term for “in you’re face”!
Here is the relevant portion of the interview transcript, as published by the Post.
Q: You know where this is going, though. Even in the period that you’ve been on vacation in the last couple of weeks, in Iraq, in Syria, of course, in Africa, al-Qaeda is resurgent.
THE PRESIDENT: Yes, but, David, I think the analogy we use around here sometimes, and I think is accurate, is if a JV team puts on Lakers uniforms, that doesn’t make them Kobe Bryant. I think there is a distinction between the capacity and reach of a bin Laden and a network that is actively planning major terrorist plots against the homeland versus jihadists who are engaged in various local power struggles and disputes, often sectarian.
Q: But that JV team jus[t] took over Fallujah.
THE PRESIDENT: I understand. But when you say took over Fallujah –
Q: And I don’t know for how long.
THE PRESIDENT: But let’s just keep in mind, Fallujah is a profoundly conservative Sunni city in a country that, independent of anything we do, is deeply divided along sectarian lines. And how we think about terrorism has to be defined and specific enough that it doesn’t lead us to think that any horrible actions that take place around the world that are motivated in part by an extremist Islamic ideology is a direct threat to us or something that we have to wade into.
The transcript shows that the president was asked about al Qaeda-affiliated groups in Iraq, Syria and Africa, which would include ISIS, when the president made his remark about the “JV team.”
Recent coverage of the Paris terrorist attack leaves me wondering if anyone in the media ever listens to their own words.
“The attack was very well planed”.
“Originally, they went to the wrong address”.
“The attack was very well executed”.
“The first lead was one of the attackers left his license in the getaway car”.
One discussion stared with one of them being a “pot-smoking, pizza delivery guy ten years ago. OK, he changed his career path and fought & trained to be a terrorist.
Another noted the similarities between the Boston & Paris attacks. Two cities, two brothers.
What brilliant insight! Can you link it to them having penises? One issue I will buy into is the economic environment you males face. Self destructive behavior is rarely rewarded. School drop-outs face a hard battle to prosper. Pot smoking bums usually get what the earn. Since they don’t work, they earn very little. Not surprising some blame the world for not rewarding them. The stand-out in most reporting is they were Islamic. The media continues to insist these were not Muslims. Sorry, but it does not matter what you or President Obama label them. They describe themselves as Muslim. That is the only relevant, common factor.
Junior Varsity is however, a proper comparison with the standard of reporting we are getting…
