Tag Archives: President of the United States

I haven’t written a serious post in a few weeks.  Some of the news has just been too sad, and I was left feeling speechless, or “writeless”, for the time being; however, this latest swipe by our President at the impending challengers to his current position leaves me breathless with disbelief (but not yet speechless).  Either Mr. Obama is irresponsible in his Presidential duties, or he’s seriously challenged in his critical thinking ability (or possibly both).

How a sitting President can sit in talks with an ally who is threatened daily with annihilation by another country and tell his political challengers that they can stifle the war talk is beyond me.  What belligerent country in their right mind wouldn’t take that as permission to go ahead and do whatever they want?  If I were the Iranian leadership, and I heard that (and you can be certain they have) I would be jumping up and down for joy.  Whoopee, they’ll be feeling.  “You know there’s not going to be any military reprisals from that source.” they will be thinking (and while they are thinking that, they will be planning their next belligerent move).

Maybe I was wrong to believe that once a sitting President is in the seat of power that there would be some sort of mantle of responsibility that wakes them up to real world issues.  Maybe I was mistaken in assuming that the information a sitting President receives is sufficient to help them understand the gravity of certain political situations.  Maybe this sitting President hasn’t got the memo yet, that Iran is serious about destroying Israel.

Or maybe he just doesn’t have the stuff between his ears to understand the information he receives, maybe it’s that  instead……

I don’t know what the problem is at the White House.  I hope that wasn’t something someone put on the teleprompter for him to say.  Surely the Presidential handlers vet those speeches better than that.  Surely they don’t all believe that saying such things in public, for everyone to hear, will not result in a net loss to Our nation, as well as to Israel. Surely, someone needs to check that out and make sure it doesn’t happen again; at least not during negotiations with a country you hope to intimidate into Not developing Nuclear weapons!!!

I’m sure I’m not the only one following the Republican primary season, or it’s attendant shenanigans.  We’ve only just gotten started but I believe the dirty tricks are well begun.

I don’t know how many of you know this, but South Carolina doesn’t connect people’s party with their registration to vote.  In order to participate in the voting on the Republican contenders, all you had to do was be registered to vote.

So, given that coming into South Carolina, Romney and Gingrich were closer to neck and neck, does anybody else have the feeling that the rather larger than expected margin of win might have something to do with Democratic voters turning up and voting on the candidate that they would Most like their Democratic candidate to run against?

Honestly.  Newt Gingrich has a Huge target painted on him.  Sure he’s a fire in the belly debater, but he’s got to withstand 9 more months of intense Democratic attacks, and he has So many ways of being attacked.  He’s Not a good choice for a Republican candidate; but if you think his winning in South Carolina is a harbinger of his chances against a sitting President, be my guest, and follow right along with the current press craze.  Either way, They’ll love reporting on this race.
