By now, if you haven't seen (or should I say heard) the latest Presidential faux-pas, maybe you should consider reading more of the news sites and do a little less social networking.
I've seen and heard (remember radio) plenty of Presidents goof up over the years, so this recent one comes as no surprise.
I sat and took a walk down memory lane and came up with some dandy messups, beginning with Truman. When Truman said he wasn't ready for the job of President, he wasn't kidding! By the time of the Korean war, he still wasn't ready. He wouldn't allow the destruction of the last and largest remaining bridge between China and Korea, even after China said that they would invade Korea. Three divisions and great destruction later, they did cross over.
A Georgian peanut farmer who became Governor and then President (of the United States - not the Peanut Growers Association), one day during a press conference blurted out the word "Stealth" and the press was all over him. "What's Stealth?" resounded over and over again.
Now comes our illustrious President who (while being prepared for an interview) had a little chat with Russia's Medeved. Unfortunately for him and the rest of the world (especially Eastern Block nations) the mikes were on. "I have just one more election" he said, "and after that, I can be more flexible". In classic Boris Badenov terms (Rocky and Bullwinkle) Medeved said, "I will transmit this to Vladimir".
What's the point? In the case of the Presidency, don't imagine the world to be a nicer place that it really is.
That's my opinion and you're entitled to it.
Griz.
