‘Did it work, Mommy?'': Top Obama aide describes moment she realized reality was more important than rhetoric
h/t Instapundit
Former ambassador Samantha Power credits her young son with teaching her not to be too proud of the speeches that won her prominence as an "impassioned" critic of Russian aggression.

"Did it work, Mommy?" Power’s 7-year-old son, Declan, asked after she described one particularly satisfying United Nations Security Council debate.
That phrase alone tells you it's all posing
"No, son. It only works on Americans because the poor fools think of us as 'fellow countrymen'. The Russians know we (leftists) are a bunch of destructive idiots who whatever looks good to us and never worry about the consequences!

#4 The article strikes me as a load of self-aggrandizing crap. Basically, she is a leftist who was a part of the Obama regime and a danger to the Republic and its freedoms.

The New York Post stated on 9/20/17: Samantha Power, who was the US Ambassador to the UN under former President Barack Obama, averaged more than one “unmasking” request for every working day in 2016 — even going so far as to seek the names of Trump associates just before his inauguration, a report says.

#5 Remember when she was exposed for unmasking all those US Citizens in an abuse of power? Fock her:

News reports are surfacing that former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Samantha Power unmasked the identities of American citizens on an “almost daily basis,” revealing the possibility that Power alone may have violated the constitutional rights of hundreds of American citizens.

Her reported actions should not come as much of a surprise to those who followed the Obama administration’s eight years in power, which was rife with executive abuses of authority.

#9 This woman's feckless rants against Russia represent the ultimate in virtue signaling. Useless, hypocritical, absurd.

#13 "Well honey, that was *after* I condemned America for not responding strongly enough to genocide in the 20th Century, but *before* I sat on my hands while Bashar Assad committed genocide in the 21st Century. We Democrats call that 'nuance.'"
