What!?

U.S is now less popular in the region than at the end of the George W. Bush administration.” – USA Today 032113

Huh!?

I thought the election of Barack Obama was going to immediately turn a Middle East frown upside down…

In fact, I distinctly remember being told by people such as Micheal Moore and other bastions of brilliance that simply electing “the smartest person to ever run for President” our image in the Middle East would instantly be made entirely of Sunshine and Lollipops.

This was true of Clinton too… funny that the people who spout this kind of stupidity are never held accountable for their ridiculous assertions when it turns out to be hogwash.

Barack and Bill share a similar footnote in history.

I also have a good enough memory to recall that never has there been such a promise associated with a Republican or Independent candidate…

So why are those who embrace truth… or reality… or whatever you want to call the world as we actually know it… never given the credit they are due?

Those who are real, who grasp reality as it is, not as they wish it to be, never seem to receive accolades for their efforts to remain in the realm of facts?  The solutions they offer are always described by those living in Dreamland as “mean-spirited” and “cruel”.  Wishful thinking passes for logic.  Platitudes for meaning.

Yet those who spout nonsense and offer up completely unqualified, often fanciful, assessments of what the future will be if we just follow them are acclaimed as positive, and progressive, in their thinking… yet they are repeatedly, demonstrably and historically wrong.  So wrong in fact, that people often die…

And when it is beyond denial that they were wrong… when there can be no debate regarding the repeated error of their thinking…

Nothing.

No “review” of the statements made promoting their fouled “thought process”. No rebuke from the ever “watchful” media. No admonition from the populace that believes itself to be “informed” and “educated”…

Upon the rare occurrence that we hear anything it is most often a revision of history crafted to better accommodate their failings.

It’s time for truth, and reality to make an appearance in our government and the population should demand it.

Everything from “We don’t have a spending problem” to “Obama has a higher IQ than anyone who has ever sought the Presidency” does nothing but delude an already poorly informed electorate.

It’s enough to make you want to drink… more than normal… for me.

The above applies to the Global Warming ‘we’re all going to die by the year 2000’ crowd too… right Al?  How about those Ice Caps?  Exponentially growing Polar Bear Population?  Mass starvation due to Overpopulation?  Rising Sea levels consuming San Francisco by last year?  You people should be wearing sandwich boards in time square…


WWVPD?

Given the Enormity of the task one must feel somewhat sorry for President Barack Obama.

The Middle East is melting Down…
Health Care has been destroyed in the name of Fairness…
The Dollar has been devalued to the point of no return…
The Economy is in a shambles…
Unemployment is being manipulated to disguise records highs…
Detroit and other U.S. cities are Bankrupt…
We’re facing another War after failing to end the two we currently have…
The Right to Privacy has been completely dismantled…
Our Diplomats are being killed…
Mexico discovered the U.S. Government was up-arming their Drug Cartels…

Even the frequent, and expensive, parties hosting the Entertainment Industries Glitterati just doesn’t bring the Joy it once did.

It’s times like these that people turn to their Savior for guidance.

It’s times like these that test men’s souls.

So President Obama is doing the right thing by turning to He that knows all…

He’s asking “What Would Vladimir Putin Do?”

And then seeking council from his Advisors at CNN to find out.

Once he has been briefed by the Cable News Nets he then asks John Kerry to reach out to Vladimir.

Putin, knowing how difficult trying to be exceptional is, broadcasts his plans for President Obama and John Kerry to embrace.

Without a moments hesitation,

Turning to the President, Secretary Kerry says “Let’s go with that since everything I’ve got is unbelievably small.” In response, the President directs him to go out right away and claim he thought of it.

So Fear not.

We can all rest assured that the Russian President has the unfolding events well in hand.

It’s also now been reinforced… one does not need to be born in the United States in order to be it’s Leader.


“Spontaneous” Anger

Yesterday our Ambassador to Libya and three embassy personnel were killed while trying to move to safer ground.

The 3 staffers were shot to death while the “protesters” got close enough to our Ambassador to suffocate him.  (I know our home-grown “Radical” Evangelical Christians do this kind of stuff everyday…but disregard that for the moment…)
Reading the stories this morning you might believe that spontaneous rioting occurred due to the purported filming of a movie not friendly to the Prophet Mohammed.  Not only that, but the fact that there is even a “reason” (read: excuse) offered by the press seems to warrant such an attack and execution of American citizens abroad.

The reality is these riots broke out yesterday… (Do I really have to remind anyone that yesterday was 9/11.) and large-scale riots across multiple countries such as Egypt and Libya take coordination.  The planning and preparation alone for these riots indicate the Arab spring may not have been such a brilliant endorsement by our diplomatic corp.

There is nothing “spontaneous” about it…
This comes on the heals of our President refusing to meet with the Prime Minister of Israel in just a couple of weeks and instead opting for an interview on The Late Show with David Letterman. I’ve personally seen Letterman twice and know how enjoyable Dave can be, but unless Quebec is melting down into an apocalyptic firestorm and only Paul Schaffer can stem the tide of total destruction, I would rethink my priorities.

But considering our President does not seem to prioritize like the rest of us it leads me to some questions;
Could it be that our current President has already decided he has lost the upcoming election? Could it be that he is tired of this job? Has he realized that his election almost 4-years ago was more style than substance and the voters did not endorse his vision of what the United States should look like? So, in the end… could he be asking himself “why should he care?”

(I started to think about this a couple of years ago when the number of trips, parties and golf outings increased exponentially while his attendance to cabinet meeting and briefings decreased at the same rate… it kind of felt like there was a concerted effort to get in as much “fun” as possible before they had to leave.)

So about those stupid Middle East Analysts…  and many Conservatives…
Yes, the crazies out there who warned that a Caliphate was on the immediate agenda of Islamic Radicals like the Muslim Brotherhood.  The same crazies who have been roundly chastised by our media may be correct after all… which leaves the question, will the media collectively apologize to these folks who saw it coming and sounded the warnings?  No, probably not.  But the press’ “go to” plan of action of ignoring the issue altogether when they get things profoundly wrong  will not work this time.
They will not be able to ignore what is happening in the Middle East… and we should not allow them to ignore how our President’s “best intentions” caused this the way they have been allowed to ignore how the “best intentions” of Clinton, Dodd and Frank destroyed the global economy setting the stage for this most recent out of control spiral in the Mediterranean.

There will be an attempted re-write of this chapter in history… we can’t accept that.  But make no mistake, the pencils are being sharpened as I type this.

So what is the truth?  Obama ran in front of this parade and took credit for it.  Ultimately you will find that your tax dollars subsidized a large part of it, and still does.  WE have allowed this to happen because WE refuse to recognize that politics is the most important thing in our lives immediately following taking care of ourselves.

Obama is a symptom of our complacency, and if you have ever uttered the words “all that political stuff doesn’t really effect me” you are watching first hand how it does, in fact, effect you.

If need be, set the beer down.  Then turn on a news cycle and make an effort to pay attention… for the rest of your life.  For the rest of us.
