And you will want a box of tissues for when North recalled America’s peace through strength days under former President Ronald Reagan.

North joined Fox News’ Megyn Kelly Thursday to blast Obama’s remarks downplaying the hunt for NSA leaker Snowden: “No, I’m not going to be scrambling jets to get a 29-year-old hacker.”

“Well, thankfully, I got to work for a president who did scramble the jets,” North said, referring to actions Reagan took after the 1985 “Achille Lauro” highjacking.

“I think this president, in his description of a “29-year-old hacker,” set a new standard for incompetence, misfeasance, malfeasance, that is now at the level of an art form,” North said.

“Espionage, that’s not hacking,” North fumed incredulously.

“Ronald Reagan didn’t hesitate to do things that he thought would be helpful to Americans,” North continued, after mentioning other international incidents involving Americans during the Reagan years. “He did not hesitate to go after perpetrators of crimes that he considered to be important to this country.

As the international community, particularly Hong Kong, and now Moscow, have continued to thumb their noses at Obama’s America, North concluded:

I sincerely mean what I said. They’ve taken these characteristics –misfeasance, malfeasance, nonfeasance and incompetence- to the level of a new art form.
