Had Obama been in office in 2001, it's very likely we'd not have an ISIS today.JMJ
Because 9/11 would have never happened, and a Democrat wouldn't have chased OBL into Afghanistan?LOL!
and if Hillary and Obama had an ounce of competency, we wouldn't have this metastasizing threat, the genocide, the greatest humanitarian crisis and mass migration since WW II.
Indeed hyperbole and ignoring of historical fact runs deep within the right wing generated meme.
I watched Obama's address to the nation last night. A total waste of my time! Retreading and doubling down.
I avoided it completely, because I knew it would only ruin my evening.Obama is a bastard president. Nothing he could possibly have to say would impress me favorably –– even if it were something I'd normally want to hear. I say that, because whatever he says publicly is either delusional, illusory, or outright prevarication.
Nothing he could possibly have to say would impress me favorablyThis has been glaringly obvious. A man with his mind shuttered to reasonable thought throughout the presidency of Obama.As the GOP pledged to do from day one, obstruction of the duly elected president at every turn, your participation in that vaunted effort has been appreciated by the GOP.
We are in an age of hollow men displaying ignorance, naivete and gross incompetence at the highest levels.The west is collapsing from the weight of the fools, ripoff artists and sincere imbeciles at the top.
It's the sincere imbeciles that frighten me the most. Some may be at the top, but I believe the vast majority are among the Democratic-Chavinists in the electorate. Most at the top are genuine fiends –– demonss –– vicious villains and bullies of a very high order.
FT,It's the sincere imbeciles that frighten me the most. No kidding!
Short video from CNN...ISIS will laugh at Obama's oval office speech.
Please read and ponder T.S. Eliot's The Hollow Men.
The poor Hollow Men, unable to cross Achernon.Failing to find not only heaven or hell but failing to find their own humanity.Do the Hollow Men project any hope at all? Nice prelude to Dante.
Eliot has always struck me as a DISMALIAN –– a prime exponent of DISMALISM ––, despite his obvious brilliance and his remarkably out-of-charcter poems on Cats.It may have had something to do with his having been born in Missouri. One can never be sure about these things. ;-)
L'entre-deux-guerres fostered a lot of that feeling.
