Understanding the intricacies involved, the situations presented, and the outside pressure applied, a sitting President must rely mostly on the advice of others in most situations he faces.<quoted text>Good post! I agree Barney! Now why has Obama had us over there for the past FOUR YEARS? Why does Obama insist our CHILDREN be killed in foreign lands? What is the Obama MISSION! I could bring every American home from every country in the world if I had 4 years to do it! Obama LIKES WAR doesn't he Barney?
Sorta like when Alice was confronted with Jabberwocky in Lewis Carroll's book. Unfortunately, Obama, or any other president, doesn't have a Humpty Dumpty there to patiently and accurately (and without prejudice) explain it's true meaning.
'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.'
Not a defense of Obama, but there'a a reason every President becomes grey headed quite quickly.
[Strangelove's plan for post-nuclear war survival involves living underground with a 10:1 female-to-male ratio]
General "Buck" Turgidson: Doctor, you mentioned the ratio of ten women to each man. Now, wouldn't that necessitate the abandonment of the so-called monogamous sexual relationship, I mean, as far as men were concerned?
Dr. Strangelove: Regrettably, yes. But it is, you know, a sacrifice required for the future of the human race. I hasten to add that since each man will be required to do prodigious... service along these lines, the women will have to be selected for their sexual characteristics which will have to be of a highly stimulating nature.
Ambassador de Sadesky: I must confess, you have an astonishingly good idea there, Doctor.
