We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I don't see the problem. The very vocal world has clamored for a weakened US. For US to go home and stop meddling. Obama has argued for this and taken actions to make it so. So we, America, should take a break, leave the world to its own devices, unfortunately, let it burn....for a while. We should not do away with our ability to step in when it gets to bad but give the people, most let speak for them, what they want.
Then, perhaps the world will come to re-evaluate our involvement and not be so quick to call for our departure. So may the American people and elect an adult into the presidency?
A few natural burns is what the world needs so they can again appreciate having around those who can keep it from getting out of hand and turning into a conflagration.
This business of revolving door governments in Egypt is such a bother for Barry. It makes it oh so hard. All he wants to do is eat his waffles. Which is a pretty apt description of his brilliant foreign "policy" if you think about it. To quote Sally Field, "They like us! They really like us!" But then to quote the current Sec'y of State, "We were for the Muslim Brotherhood before we were against them." I'm getting dizzy trying to figure out which side, if any, Barry's Boyz are on. Even the great columnist Spengler is confused. Can you help me out here?
The JEF is winging it, as he saunters thru each incident, ever so careful not to belay ANY responsibility upon his anointed brow. Willing lackeys, fawning supporters, and useful idiots are aplenty to deflect and absorb any inquiry or reporting.
I'm still convinced that even being caught in a stolen car, with illegal guns, a ton of blow, a dead hooker, BAC of 3.0, and with a bag of Krugerrands, BHO would still be found Not Guilty in the court of 'public opinion'.
As President, Obama reminds me of the 90 day wonders who can recite chapter and verse from the Book and the latest journals, but are totally flummoxed when it fails in real life. Some learn and adapt while others burrow deeper. So, a mixture of incompetence and failure to recognize events as challenges.
