Then again, in the land of the blind, the one-eyed fat man is king.
The current President of the United States, acting in a way that would make Nero proud, continues to fiddle while not only the United States burns, but the rest of the world begins to spin out of control. The economy and the financial future of the country are in shambles. The oil spill in the Gulf was allowed to spread with no plan, central authority, or leadership in place to prevent its destruction of the Gulf coast. American weakness and lack of resolve has sent a signal and emboldened our enemies to press their hegemonic strategy throughout the globe and to attack our allies, such as Israel.
The country is in this position because all President Obama wants to do, and is capable of doing, is half his job.
Barack Obama has been the number-one topic of conversation among many of my friends and associates in London. His incompetence and narcissism, and the danger he poses to the interests of the United States and its allies in Europe, are startling people. I was asked, "How does Obama view himself as President?" We happened to be sitting in a hotel which overlooked Buckingham Palace, and the answer to the question came to me......."
......It appears that President Obama also believes, as the "titular" world head of state, that he can, by sheer force of his will, charm, persuasive power, and denigration of his country, convince the most brutal of global adversaries to live in peace. His mere words, well-delivered via his teleprompter, will solve not only the ongoing global financial crisis, but also longstanding international disputes.
The rest of the world has begun to see through Obama's unrestrained self-absorption. The rejection of the Olympics for Chicago despite Obama's personal intervention and some of the published comments of Nicholas Sarkozy and the whispers in the backrooms of Europe and other world capitals are just the tip of the iceberg; the real consensus of opinion is slowly but surely beginning to reflect the reality and danger of Obama's incompetence and unrestrained vanity.
However, President Obama's makeup is such that and he will instead seek any excuse to explain away what is said or done as the result of the failings of others.
Notwithstanding the determination of the founding fathers to avoid having a "monarch," we now have one, at least in his own mind. Unfortunately, it comes at a most dangerous time in world affairs, and with the economic future of the United States hanging in the balance."
She's wearing that dress that makes her look like the king's soldiers, in Braveheart.
That was what she wore to film the campaign video for the rubes. I’m sure she wore something much more glamorous for her outing to Georgetown.
I heard someone refer to that “smile” as his Seattle Slew grin.
A 4 serving box of lemon pudding costs about 75 cents or less if it’s homemade. One can only imagine how much that State Dinner pudding cost us taxpayers.
