It's a line from the movie Judgement at Nurembert, a bit of the cinematic arts which I heartily recommend.
It has Spencer Tracy opposite Marlene Detreich, wonderful performances from Burt Lancaster, Montgomery Clift, Judy Garland, and (especially) Maximilian Schell, as well as a "God he looks young" pre-Star Trek William Shatner.
That being said, the thing that has always stuck in my head is a bit with equally remarkable Richard Widmark, playing lead prosecutor Colonel Tad Lawson, who drunkenly states at a party:
There are no Nazis in Germany. Didn't you know that, Judge?
The Eskimos invaded Germany and took over.
That's how all those terrible things happened.
It wasn't the fault of the Germans.
It was the fault of those damn Eskimos.
Widmark, or course, was playing a sarcastic drunk.
Gene Sperling, Obama's director of the National Economic Council, was neither drunk or ironic when he blamed liberals for Obama's capitulation on the debt deal:
The meeting is an off-the-record, regular gathering that some on the left credit both with keeping the White House aware of liberal concern and keeping liberal messaging coordinated with the White House. Critics deride it as a "veal pen" aimed at neutering the left.
Yesterday, Sperling faced a series of questions about the White House's concessions on the debt ceiling fight and its inability to move in the direction of new taxes or revenues. Progressive consultant Mike Lux, the sources said, summed up the liberal concern, producing what a participant described as an "extremely defensive" response from Sperling.
Sperling, a person involved said, pointed his finger at liberal groups, which he said hadn't done enough to highlight what he saw as the positive side of the debt package -- a message that didn't go over well with participants.
Yes, if it weren't for those fucking Eskimos, Obama would have prevailed.
It appears that Obama's message to his base is, "Vote for me, you cock sucking losers."
Perhaps a tete a tete with Dale Carnegie is in order, because the meetings in the veal pen are not working.
