The idiots who voted for BO are yet to figure out they actually voted for P. T. Barnum. I believe there was a famous quote accredited to Mr. Barnum that pretty well sums up how BO "leads" this nation.

Mencken once said something to the effect that no-one ever went broke underestimating the stupidity of the American people...not quite that harsh, but he hadn't seen the zero and the morons who think he's special.

The president of the United States will release a binder full of new gun-control executive orders on Wednesday. Instead of standing alone, bearing full responsibility for the imperial actions he is about to take, President Obama will surround himself with an audience of kids who wrote to him after the Newtown, Conn., school massacre. This is the most cynical in Beltway theatrical staging -- a feckless attempt to invoke "For the Children" immunity by hiding behind them.

What has happened to the deliberative process in this country? Public debate in Washington has deteriorated into Sesame Street sing-a-longs. We are already inundated...
