What we have now is a truly pathetic President.
While we all bear witness to the devastation and suffering in Japan, a close ally, he farts around with trivialities while planning luxurious vacations.
This man is an ice sculpture of self love. I am so embarrassed for our country.
It is a painfully ironic list...
Perhaps we can add a few other essentials, like make certain the US Secretary of State was once a 'co-partner' of a prior Presidency who once made it their policy to lie about genocide.
When Hillary Clinton first traveled to China and foolishly announced to the world, the Obama Team wasn't going to make human rights a priority, we all knew what a nightmare they would enable.
What a joke 'smart power' has become.
11. Flirt with the Secretary of State when she comes for dinner in your ceremonial tent and all will be forgiven.
I once had a (civil) argument with George Friedman about how Obama would turn out. I was of the mind that an untested community organizer, naive about foreign policy and the world and apparently unwilling to make hard decisions, would be a train wreck president. He was convinced that being selected president meant that "he knew something about power" (i.e. running for president qualifies you to be president... remember that shit?) but that in any case America was too big for one man to screw up.
George apparently didn't think through (or believe) what I was most worried about... not just bad leadership, but lack of it. Sure, the president can't ruin the budget on his own. And Obama didn't do that. He just gave Pelosi a blank check and went to the opera. It's been downhill from there. When historians look back to identify when exactly the United States began its decline, their gaze will settle here.
Score one for me, I guess.
With any luck, it'll all be over in Libya before we can get around to doing anything. If the Arab League wants to intervene, let 'em. If the French want to impose a no fly zone, have at it. As for me, I'm tired of being at war since I was a teenager. Let's not get into another one.
Hey Dawnfire82, did I say bored? Then let's not try to reshape my words to suit your worldview. How about weary of war? That better? Wearing of killing? Weary watching the news everynight and seeing more dead Americans?
Are you a war mongering idiot?
Go fuck yourself.
