Here's what you are too stupid to realize about leadership. No effective leader micro-manages events that are better handled by staff that are not only familiar with specific areas of concern but specialize in their management. What all good leaders do is surround themselves with qualified staff and then stay out of the way. For example, a head football coach doesn't panic and take over control of calling plays from the offensive coordinator in the fourth quarter just because the game is close.
True leaders, however, take responsibility when their designated assistants screw up.

Here's the truth: were the "asteroid" to land on Israel all the problems with Islamists and wars for oil would disappear. If God actually exists - she does not - and has a sense of humour, she will do this one thing for me. The title is, "The United States of America, not, as some would have it, The United States of Israel.

I understand and appreciate the concept, but the question remains: how long did it take the German economy to recover from it's clueless leader leading them into a series of disastrous invasions and wars over oil, anti-communism, and quasi-patriotism?

The other question is: where was President Obama during the development of the recently approved medical robot? Hmmmmm? no one in the whole universe has been able to answer these two questions to my satisfaction.

AND also another stellar BLACK LIB DEMOCRATIC LEADER NOT THE LEADER OF BLACK PEOPLE only BLACK DEMOCrats AL SHARPTON A former New York prosecutor whose reputation was destroyed after Tawana Brawley falsely called him a 'gang-raping, kidnapping racist' has filed court papers seeking the nearly half a million dollars she owes him, it was revealed today.

Steven Pagones, a former Dutchess County prosecutor, says Brawley still owes him $431,492, including interest, after dragging his name through the mud in 1987 when he was one of three falsely accused by her of the notorious gang rape.

The failure of the anti-Hagel campaign

The Democratic defections that conservatives coveted never materialized. And now many Republicans look like reflexively, dangerously aggressive people.

While it shouldn't make a difference to the final outcome, Sen. Lindsey Graham's threat to put a hold on Hagel's nomination until outgoing Secretary Leon Panetta testifies on the Benghazi attack is a reminder that issues that are mostly irrelevant to Hagel's competence to run the Defense Department have dominated the debate over this appointment. Hawkish Republicans have argued that then-Sen. Hagel's relatively mild dissent on issues related to Israel and Iran disqualify him for the job. However, most of these have no bearing on the responsibilities Hagel will have at the Pentagon, and those that do should increase the public's confidence in Hagel rather than undermine it. This has underscored the overwhelmingly ideological nature of the campaign against him, which has had more to do with policing what current and future politicians can say on foreign policy than it does with selecting the right people to serve in the Cabinet.

http://theweek.com/bullpen/column/239522/the-...

The good news for the country is that a competent and qualified nominee for the Defense post will almost certainly be approved by the Senate in the near future. Unfortunately, a large number of Hagel's fellow Republicans have done their best to use this confirmation process to inflict even more damage on their party's battered reputation on foreign policy and national security. Hagel's nomination should have been a chance for Republicans to start repairing the party's image in the eyes of the public. They are well on their way to squandering it.

Flack believes that we landed on the moon & the rover is actually on Mars but when NASA talks about Global Warming, he thinks they are lying.

You see, there isn't anything political about the lunar landing or the rover but ever since Al Gore come out warning about Global Warming, the Rabid Right has a freakout.

Now if Fox News said there was Man Made Global Warming, Flack would give up his love of coal and actually give a sh*t about what kind of planet his grandchildren will have.
