Holding the wheel is not the same as steering. Sitting the the White House and allowing world events to unfold around you does not constitute a coherent foreign policy. It does not shape events. And it most certainly does not diminish the threat to our country. It does however more clearly define the idiot thought that it is possible to "lead from behind." Let the wheels go where they may, then pretend you were actually steering. Brilliant.
Closing your eyes does not make the boogie man go away. Al Qaeda attacked us again in Libya; plain and simple. The previous strategy of 3.5 years of playing nice did not make them go away. It did not diminish their organizing activities. It did not slow their training. It only gave them room to maneuver. No matter how much you had hoped they would forget about us and move on, they did not. Instead, they moved in; killing four Americans. Clearly not optimum.
As Commander in Chief, you should learn something about waging war. Key principle, you must maintain contact with your enemy lest you get ambushed. "Gain and maintain contact with your enemy," is basic warfighting and it also applies strategically. Rest assured, if you take your eye off your enemy or ignore him, you will be ambushed; as in Libya. Normalized relations with Al Qaeda is warfighting, not sipping home brews at the 19th hole chatting it up.
Semantics is no substitute for substance. Quit dancing around the Libya timeline splicing words that have clear meaning to the rest of America. It may help you feel better while giving a stump speech, but the rest of us know that going to Vegas to fundraise, says more about you and your deep concern for dead Americans, than finding a fortuitous sound bite on a tape that you think will act as an escape hatch from dereliction of duty. Not so fast. We get it. You wanted peace through smiling and apologizing. It didn't work out; it only took you four weeks of Cirque du Soleil verbal acrobatics to get to a spot where you think us stupid idiots in the Middle Class now find you believable. We don't. You lied about what you knew when. You did it to protect your political butt. Shameful behavior form the Commander in Chief. Pathetic.
It sure is hard to defend vapor. You should have worked harder for 3.5 years rather than just talking about "results;" you should have produced some.
You and Joe Biden could not lead ants to a picnic. You both came out of the Senate. You had 60 seats at one point, and you still haven't been able to wrangle a budget out that highly respected legislative institution. If the President and Vice President, both fresh out of the Senate, cannot get a budget out of the Senate, what could they do? I guess three years of no budgets is all the evidence we need.
Own up to it, you love being President, you just don't want to do the job. Why let those security briefings get in the way of golfing? Why not line up a new gig as a DJ while you can? Why not strut your eye candy self through NY and Hollywood while everyone is licking your boots and telling you how much they like your new clothes? Who could give it up? Sorry, but being President is about being on call 24/7, and attending security briefings, and meeting with foreign leaders instead of TV ratings bottom dwellers and softball buttkissers. It is heavy lifting and it is not for the faint of heart. It is for those who love this country more than they love playing a round of golf, or watching the teleprompter, or watching themselves on TV being "hip." It is not for those who can even utter the words "lead from behind," let alone try to turn an un-clever punch line from a joke into "coherent" foreign policy while half of the Arab world is in the throes of revolution.
Walk away, you can play golf for free for the rest of your life, but the rest of America can't afford to have you as President.
It costs too much.

Interesting how the President of the United States, an unabashed apologist for radical Islam (read as murderous radical Islam) and self-proclaimed swami of foreign policy has put the US in a position to lose an Ambassador and three consulate employees, allow for a breach of an American Embassy, the destruction of an American flag (the most powerful symbol of freedom in the world) and then have the Embassy staff tweet out an apology to the attackers. Haven't we been given enough evidence in the post-Carter era, now totalling 31 years, that appeasement, apologies, and avoidance do not equal peace and cooperation.
The cultivation of these three A's through ignorance, inaction, and idiocy only embolden what would otherwise be impotent and ignominious splinter groups into becoming polarized Muslim mobs that are wreaking havoc on a lame and limp Presidency. It wouldn't bother me so much, except it continues to cost the lives of Americans across the globe, and the President's responses in these circumstances are so feeble that they only add gas to the fire and accelerate more attacks. The attack in Benghazi was clearly fueled by the success of the attack in Cairo and fanned by the completely ineffective White House response. Now four people are dead.
When will the liberal culture in this country come to understand that Christians are not the ones running around the globe murdering innocents, and when will they finally place the blame for such attacks, not on the producer of a movie, but squarely on the shoulders on which it belongs, the bent and radical believers of Islam and the timid and weak moderate Muslims who have allowed the "religion of peace" to be hijacked? Those sitting idly by are just as guilty.

The selection of the upcoming Presidential Debate moderators is showing again what schlubs the GOP leaders can be.
Good job in not securing a debate for FoxNews the #1 news station, while securing a debate for CNN who can muster about as many viewers as a midnight showing of "Spies Like Us", "Three Amigos", "Gigli" and "Showgirls."
Good job in allowing all three Presidential Debate moderators to be so far left that they could make Gov Jerry Brown seem to be on the fringe of being a Repbulican. That should set up for three very fair debates.
What GOP candidates and RNC leadership fail to grasp, is that when they cannot negotiate to a fair outcome on matters such as these, our confidence in their ability to govern is diminished.
Put your pads on, lace up your skates, grab a stick and play. Don't let yourself be pushed around by a bunch of pooofty figure skaters who get blown down in a stiff wind. Man up and get your candidate and your party a fair deal...always!

It is astounding that America could elect as its President a man who is blaming ATMs for slowing the economic recovery.
"You see it when you go to a bank and ... you use an ATM, you don't go to a bank teller. Or you go to the airport, and you're using a kiosk instead of checking in at the gate," the president said.

Answer: Representative Weiner for thinking we were all stupid enough to believe his lame story and his whacky attempts at deflecting the heat. He now admits to doing an Annie Leibovitz on his miniature wanky and broadcasting proudly (not so much anymore) via Twitter. Oh, and by the way, to five other women as well. I wonder how married life is treating him these days.
Please, voters in his district, show America that we will not tolerate idiots representing us in Congress; as least not once we have confirmed they are idiots.
I am bi-partisan on this one. No idiots, donkeys or elephants.
