Obama avoided the rookie mistake that John F. Kennedy committed at his first summit meeting in 1961, when the new president left the Russians thinking he was young, untested and uncertain.
I got a chuckle out of that. Does Doyle McManus really believe that?
For some reason, a disaster for the US may not be something that Obama necessarily worries about. It is, after all, all about HIM. The country is an entirely different, and much less important, matter.
And for the REAL knee slapper, here's McManus' last paragraph:
All of which left Obama sounding, at the end of the week, as if he looked forward to getting back to solvable problems -- such as the economy and healthcare.
Oh yeah, the easy stuff.
Is Obama Jimmy Carter on steroids?
Yeah! Pictures ...Erupting Volcano Anak Krakatau
Memo for Doyle McManus: Hey buddy, how's that "War on Poverty" thing coming along these days? As I recall, the Democrats promised they were going to "solve" that problem over 40 years ago.
It is unfortunate that reporters are not asked to defend their opinions with logic an evidence.
Are you saying that Obama hasn't already solved "climate change"? The House passed Cap 'n Trade, a law so important that the bill spoke for itself (which is why it didn't need to be actually, you know, read).
They still have done nothing to shore up the dollar, and forget anything approaching budget cuts. Don't forget 23 new 'czars' with attendant, and overlapping, federal bureaucracies attached.
This guiy is not about to fix anything; his modus operandi is about making people ever-more dependant upon the government.
Even democrats (small 'd'; intentional) know that if you wish to stimulate economic growth, you take the decisions about money out of the hands of the Congresscritters, and slash taxes across the board and let the people decide how to invest the savings.
From the perspective of a former KGB spook, we must be a true laugh riot about now. Think about it - every pie-in-the-sky strategic objective laid out in the Verona papers is currently manifested as a Democrat congress or is growing cucumbers behind the White House.
I bet Obama was puzzled where Putin ever picked up enough American pop to be whistling "Georgia On My Mind" all the time..
