It's a Bombardment of Blurry Political Lines Thing

Dear America,

gun control on G:  

pass out a pistol to everyone.

What --  are you bonkers?
yes I am.

But wouldn't the natural deterrent change perceptions when  illicit intentions are brewing?  When we know that every single one of us has one -- wouldn't this be the kind of  protective underpinnings of personal security to the masses every responsible, self-reliant, responsible, liberated, responsible, freedom-loving, responsible, soul must carry?

: having the job or duty of dealing with or taking care of something or someone
: able to be trusted to do what is right or to do the things that are expected or required
: involving important duties, decisions, etc., that you are trusted to do

yes indeed.

In a perfect world -- the thing is -- we want everyone to take responsibility for their own life and the lives of others very seriously.

Now, switching fronts on the fly, we have talked obsessively about this idea of deterrence in g-land -- for on the world stage, a country that screams major threat within without uttering a single syllable usually stands.   And stands strong ..secure...untouchable...on a rock...fully capable of protecting its citizens without firing a single bullet.  Nobody wants to touch that.

Campaigning for president, a Senator Obama had many grandiose ideas; unbeknownst to many, however, his notions packed with magic potions to change everything came with a lifetime of contempt for this kind of strength, this kind of exceptionalism, this kind of capitalism, this kind of religious liberty, this kind of history, this kind of tradition...you name it, he pretty much hated it.

It was all destined to be fundamentally changed -- and in what would turn out to be two terms and five days when all said and done.

This is serious stuff, folks.

If we actually take it all in with an objective eye, we not only haven't moved forward anywhere in America, but if we have the courage to look beyond our borders....

Interesting is a post from Real Clear Politics...covering a "foreign policy showdown" on CNBC, with Home Depot founder Kenneth Langone and NBC's chief foreign policy correspondent Richard Engel.  In the conversation, Langone pressed Engel on answering a simple question: name me one country where relations have improved under Obama [you know, having made it perfectly clear during his campaign, he had all the fixes to correct  America's reputation of being an imperialistic, militaristic, capitalistic, materialistic, going ballistic brute].

Finally, Engel mutters this: "yeah, I think you would be hard pressed to find that."   And he gets a chance to expand on that; and if you care to read it, go here.

Let's see -- you wanna be the country of  "Peace through Weakness" or "Peace through Strength?"

hmmmmmm what did he tell the cadets?

Let's have Charles Krauthammer complete the circle for us, shall we? -- from Fox News with Bret Baier:

“It was an answer to the chorus of criticism, even from his side of the aisle, that it's been a weak, leaderless, rudderless foreign policy, which it has been," he said. "I spoke to a member of Congress who was in the armed forces and he said there was a real pettiness and a personalization of this."

“This is a graduation speech for West Point," he said. "It was not a place where you -- you know, you want to be inspiring the future officers of America, it isn't a place to answer your critics or to go point by point against all the attacks on him. And he set out this ridiculous contrast between extreme isolationism on the one hand, and extreme, almost a caricature of intervention, on the other hand

yes indeed.

The president graced the cadets with his presence --
as the Commander in Chief who's sole purpose in that moment is to honor

the audience chock full of pure grit, determination, courage, and strength ....

an audience of the smartest, sharpest tools in the American shed....

an audience having consciously chosen to honor America and all 300 million of us, to serve, risking life and limb, and do whatever is asked of them in the coming years ahead (and dare we note, walking into a very mixed up, wacky world, to boot)  --

and what does this president do?  Make it about him?

It might as well have been written on pleading paper and turned into the court of public opinion with copies filed at the Department of Defense.

Way to go, Mr. President; way to emasculate the bunch (including the girls, BTW) --   "just because we have the best hammer does not mean that every problem is a nail."

Inspiring, isn't it.

He seems so confused; taking in the entire speech -- faced with such a foreign policy conundrum -- he made a convincing argument sounding guilty of completely wanting it both ways; and to top it off, having really no idea how to really pull that off.

Looking forward --  and spinning this great responsibility to protect and to serve to the next president of the United States -- a window has opened.

Much like this West Point speech fiasco, Hillary's Benghazi defense takes an entire chapter in her new book hellbent on simply explaining herself, responding to her critics with what seems to be an answer to the world.

Making a direct hit against the "what difference at this point does it make" comment on the Hill, well it would seem, Hill. aligning to be the 2016-superpower-candidate-you-wanna-be full stop, to make a big, fat, self-serving, bloody difference for you now, doesn't it.

[And she has the gall to continue to cling to the video story line, at least, in part, in a 'we really have no idea' kind of way when in fact we do!]


: able to be trusted to do what is right or to do the things that are expected or required


Take full responsibility for whatever happens when things don't go as expected or required.


There has been, she writes, a “regrettable amount of misinformation, speculation, and flat-out deceit by some in politics and the media,” but new information from “a number of reputable sources continues to expand our understanding of these events.”

You said it.

"a regrettable amount 
of misinformation, 
and flat-out deceit 
by some in politics 
and the media" 


We're waiting.....

Dude, that was like two years ago, let it go already, right?

You have got to be kidding me?  Did you click into that link because it's a juicy morsel of how the progressive propaganda machine works.   It's right on cue.  It's a regrettable  amount of misinformation in formation, so look sharp and be on the alert.

Now to the taking of responsibility in a new subject: The Veteran's Administration.

Way back when, in 2007, the Senator Obama knew exactly what the VA needed.


OR no -- read this from 2012....."for the first time ever"...military families and returning vets are a priority.   Oh really?

To the crib notes version documenting the dodging of responsibility, and of course, the bullets left and right...

Flash backward to May 21st 2014  -- Obama is finally saying something to address the scandal:

"If these allegations 
prove to be true, 
it is dishonorable, 
it is disgraceful 
and I will not tolerate it 
-- period."

Why did you wait so long to say something?  
Oh whatever.
More important, what do you mean, if these allegations prove to be true?  The deplorable treatment of our veterans, wait lists and all, have been a problem for decades.  And you, Mr. President, have not only known about this, but you have for the first time made it a priority ...at least since 2012.... having made this kind of commitment as early as 2007.

I get it.

All you have to do, Mr. President, is ask for Shinseki's resignation and the scandal instantly becomes a distant memory.
[Truth be told, more like a poof]
Check that one off your list of things to do today....

Judge not the common man 
by the color of his skin 
but by his character 



oh what difference at this point does it make.

Make it a Good Day, G

Ooooh and Jay Carney leaves, too.  Aw so sad.  
Formally covering for the 'regrettable amount of misinformation, speculation, and flat-out deceit by some in politics' has surely taken a toll.
